3. Conductors in Electrostatic Equilibrium
Flipping Physics videos turn core physics curriculum into edutainment. Flipping Physics’ creator is a real-life physics teacher whose clear explanations and blackboard work keep learners engaged with a little help from his friends: Billy, Bob, and Bo.
Full disclosure: Billy, Bob, and Bo are the teacher himself, dressed in different outfits and with different attitudes, sitting at a school desk. But that’s just the twist some physics lessons need to keep students entertained as they learn.
