Companion Videos Series for Eight Amazing Engineering Stories

Coming Soon!

Eight videos introduce the topics covered in more depth in Eight Amazing Engineering Stories. The videos highlight essential engineering principles of digital camera imagers, tiny accelerometers, atomic clocks, enriching fissile material, batteries, anodizing metals, microwave ovens, and lasers. Each video corresponds to a chapter in Eight Amazing Engineering Stories, which also includes introductions to the scientific principles necessary for a deeper understanding of the material presented in the chapters. The reader will be delighted by primers on waves, nuclear structure, and electronic transitions. It also features “In depth” sections on entropy, semiconductors, and the mathematics of capacitors.

If you enjoy these videos two previous EngineerGuy series might appeal to you: Series #2 and Series #3.
