Study break of the day: December 18, 2011

If studying for the Physics 3 final isn’t exactly what floats you boat, perhaps you should take a break by … watching physics lectures?

Walter Lewin is a professor of physics emeritus at MIT.  He is known for (among other things) his introductory physics lectures that are all available on YouTube thanks to MIT OpenCourseWare.

If you pay attention, you will notice one neat trick of his that has fascinated many of his videos’ viewers: drawing dotted lines. Very, very quickly. Also, as an added bonus, it makes arguably the coolest sound ever!  Thankfully, some enterprising person has decided to make a short mashup of Lewin’s best dotted lines. Enjoy.
