The Why’s Guy – a great resource of Chemistry and Physics clips

This one’s been a team effort, so thanks. Specko from the TES Boards pointed me in the direction of this site, which is an archive of clips from a show called the Morning Show in the States. Each week, Mats Selens does an experiment or two and explains what’s going on. Nice, short, simple, well-explained – just the way we like it. I contacted Mats (the one with the beard) and he gave me permission to put a clip on this blog, so please go and investigate his site. For each episode, you can download a .wmv file which is of much better quality than these YouTube compressions.

In these two sample clips, Mats is explaining electrolysis of water and discussing the use of fuel cells and hydrogen as a power source.
