This lecture is on the excessive reactivity of neutrinos. In future lectures, I will show how antineutrinos catalyze nuclear fusion.
This lecture is about the blindness of the strong (nuclear) force, as well as the fact that other fundamental forces of physics can see (e.g. gravity, the electromagnetic force).
This is a parody of "Part of Your World" from the Little Mermaid, and is about nuclear fusion.
This lecture explains why light nuclei have a fairly even ratio of protons and neutrons, whereas heavy nuclei have significantly more neutrons than protons. Special guest: the ghost of Michael Jackson.
This lecture explains attraction and repulsion at an atomic/nuclear level by explaining the four fundamental forces of nature:
-The ElectroMagnetic Force
- The Strong Force
- The Weak Force
This lecture explains nucleomical reactions, specifically radioactivity (alpha, beta, positron, electron capture), and slow neutron reactions.
This video shows nucleon configurations for nuclides of elements 1-10. Most nuclides are shown, including highly unstable/radioactive nuclides. Omitted are some spin-zero nuclides (because they're boring) and nuclides for which the spin has not been measured.
Audio is provided by your own Spacecadet262 and by Nkosi the Doctor.
In this lecture, I finish explaining the theoretical underpinnings of nuclear shell theory. As a note, I suggest that in order to understand this material, you watch lecture 4, then lecture 5, then lecture 4 again.
Also note, I made the same mistake twice in the audio at around 6:20-7:00. I'll give bonus points to anyone who can spot the mistake.
This lecture takes a dive into nuclear shell theory. Just a quick note: Lectures 4 and 5 basically cover similar material, and it will be very difficult to comprehend Lecture 4 without seeing Lecture 5 also. After lecture 5, I should have explained quite a bit of the theory behind the nuclear shell model.
This Lecture introduces the atomic nucleus as well as the particles comprising the nucleus, e.g. protons and neutrons. This lecture defines the terms "isotope" and "nuclide," and explains how each nuclide is a distinct entity in regard to nucleomistry.
This lecture explains the concept of quantum numbers in atomic structure (e.g. electrons). It explains concepts such as shells, subshells, and electron spin. The topics of this lecture are often covered in advanced general chemistry class or introductory physical chemistry. As usual, this lecture has no equations and has quite a few sexual references.
This lecture introduces the science of nucleomistry (basically chemistry of the atomic nucleus). It is intended for the general population who is curious about the science behind the world we live in, and has a thick enough skin not to get offended by jokes made at their expense. This lecture describes what nucleomistry is (and how it differs from chemistry and physics), explains why wikipedia is a valid scientific source, and begins to explain some of the chemistry behind with the nucleomistry theories are based.
