VIEW MORENewton's first law of motion is described in this video. The video describes how friction plays a role in object's rest or motion. The video uses humor to describe the first law.
VIEW MOREEratosthenes calculated the size of the earth 2,250 years ago on the Summer Solstice in Syene and Alexandria. He used basic geometry to come to his conclusion. His estimation was 15% different than the actual size of the Earth. This video draws out the components that went into the problem Eratosthenes solved in order to find the circumference of the Earth.
