Secara teori fisika terkesan rumit dan memusingkan kepala. Namun, beberapa gejala fisika seperti Kumparan Tesla, superkonduktor, dan video musik lucu adalah alasan besar untuk tertarik dengan fisika. Berikut adalah beberapa favorit yang terpilih :
10. Musical Tesla Coil
Steve Ward can tune his Tesla coil so that the crackle of each spark sounds like a musical note.
9. Mythbusters Play with Sulfur Hexafluoride
Everyone knows that helium can make your voice sound high like a chipmunk, but what will happen when Adam Savage inhales some gas that is over five times denser than air?
