Julius Sumner Miller – Physics is his business and his business is wonderful!

Recently I was trying to learn about the science behind hydraulics and how they work and one of the videos that came up was by a physicist named Julius Sumner Miller. It looked like an old video, but I decided to check it out. What I found was not only an educational video, but a very entertaining teacher!

I was pleased to see someone uploaded a series of his demonstrations to Youtube that cover many areas of physics. They follow a similar format, about 15 minutes, and each covers one lesson in physics. They always have “enchanting” experiments as he teaches the viewers about how and why things work the way they do.

I took physics in high school and enjoyed it. I remember learning a lot about Newtons laws and how things move, but just by watching some of these videos, I realized there is a whole lot more to physics and we only just scratched the surface with what we learned in high school.

I highly recommend checking out his videos to learn some new things and to be entertained at the same time. Julius passed away a while back so it is clear these video were made a while ago, but the physics remains true and relevant to this day.
