Here is a lesson on Lewis structures and covalent bonding.Oleh Brian Hatak and Chuck Lutz

This podcast explains how to evaluate definite integrals at given limits of integration, and how this idea relates to finding the area under the curve when a function is graphed.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast introduces integrals with the idea "un-doing" a derivative, and then works several examples based on the reverse of the power rule.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast explains how to apply your understanding of derivatives to the problem of finding the maximum or minimum value of a function.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast introduces how to perform derivatives for some more complicated functions, specifically how to use the chain rule for derivatives of composite functions, and how to use the product rule for the derivative of the product of two functions.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast introduces common derivatives that can't be performed with the power rule, such as derivatives of some trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic functions.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast introduces the concept of derivatives, at a depth appropriate for students beginning a calculus-based physics course. This includes a brief description of what a derivative means, and how to find derivatives using the power rule.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast explains standing waves on strings, including an explanation for how to calculate which frequencies of vibration will 'work' to cause a certain string to resonate at all of its different harmonic frequencies.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast introduces the idea of static equilibrium, once students are already familiar with torque concepts.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast describes several sound wave properties, and introduces the sound wave phenomena of Doppler Effect and Beat Frequency. Simple calculations are also briefly discussed.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast explains how to examine forces and torques while an object is rolling.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast explains what torque is, and how to calculate it. Newton's 2nd Law is also revisited, from a rotational perspective.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast is a quick review of Gauss' Law, including conductors in electrostatic equilibrium, E-field due to spherical conductors & non-conductors, E-field due to sheets of charge, and E-field due to lines of charge.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast introduces the formula for calculating rate of heat transfer through conduction, with an example problem to help demonstrate how the formula is used.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast explains the definition of heat, and how it differs from internal energy. It also explains conduction, convection, and radiation as the three methods of heat transfer.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast discusses calculations for the linear and volume expansion of objects when heated.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast deals with the similarities between simple harmonic motion and uniform circular motion. Problem-solving is discussed, using functions for position, velocity, and acceleration of a simple harmonic oscillator.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast explains how to think about the energy of a simple harmonic oscillator (specifically a mass-spring system), and also how to solve related problems.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast is a very quick review of how to use energy-conservation ideas when an object is rotating during its motion.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast introduces the concept of center of mass, both for a system of particles and for irregularly-shaped objects.Oleh Jeff Smith

Arapahoe High School Physics Podcasts

This podcast is intended to review some conceptual ideas related to work, energy, and momentum. It just consists of 8 conceptual questions, with answers discussed.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast introduces Potential Energy Curves, after students are already familiar with energy concepts such as kinetic and potential energies, and also E-conservation.Oleh Jeff Smith

This podcast is a very quick review of projectile ideas, including the differences between x- and y- components of motion, how to solve problems when projectiles are launched horizontally, and what additional thinking is involved if a projectile is launched at an initial angle.Oleh Jeff Smith
