What happens inside a geyser? How do you make individual atoms visible with a field emission microscope? And how do different types of waves propagate? Anyone interested in the answers to these and other physics questions, whether out of sheer curiosity or to prepare for an exam, for example, can now simply watch about 200 lecture experiments online. The Department of Physics at the University of Konstanz presents the experiments in short videos.

The videos are free of charge and cover a wide range of physics fundamentals, from mechanics to electromagnetism, optics, thermodynamics and atomic and quantum physics. Good to know: The department makes the videos available under a free license (CC BY-SA 4.0). Provided you give credit to the originators, you may also use the videos for your own projects published under the same free license.

The Department of Physics at the University of Konstanz has made the video collection of physical experiments available on its department website as well as on the central OER repository for universities in Baden-Württemberg (ZOERR). The project is supported by the Open Science team of the Communication, Information, Media Centre (KIM) at the University of Konstanz.
