What Is Density? - Explanation & Examples

1. What Is Density? - Explanation & Examples

After watching this video, you will be able to explain what density is, give examples of high and low density, and calculate density using an equation. A short quiz will follow.

Electrical Resistance: Definition, Unit & Variables

2. Electrical Resistance: Definition, Unit & Variables

We'll take a shopping trip to the mall to learn how electrical resistance works and how it is affected by resistivity, conductor dimensions, and temperature. We'll also take a look at several common appliances that take advantage of resistance to function.

What is Conduction in Science? - Definition & Examples

3. What is Conduction in Science? - Definition & Examples

How does water boil? Why do lights come on when we flip the switch? These normal occurrences are made possible by a process called conduction. In this lesson, we will talk about conduction and some examples.

What Is Permittivity? - Definition & Examples

4. What Is Permittivity? - Definition & Examples

Discover what the electric permittivity of a substance is, and how it's determined by that substance's reaction to an external electric field. Then go further and learn what the permittivity of free space and the dielectric constant have to do with electric permittivity.

What Is Magnetic Permeability? - Definition & Examples

5. What Is Magnetic Permeability? - Definition & Examples

You may have run across a constant called the permeability of free space in your study of physics. This constant is intrinsically related to magnetic permeability, and in this lesson, you'll learn what that is and how exactly the two are related.

Magnetic Force: Definition, Poles & Dipoles

6. Magnetic Force: Definition, Poles & Dipoles

You're probably familiar with magnets, but have you ever stopped to consider how they work? In this lesson, we'll look at the root of magnetism and some of the fundamental properties of magnets.

Dipole Moment: Definition, Equation & Examples

7. Dipole Moment: Definition, Equation & Examples

In this lesson, we define the term dipole moment and discuss some background on molecular polarity. We also introduce the dipole moment equation and practice using it in an example problem.
