Direct Measurement videos show situations that viewers can use to learn and apply physics concepts. Grids, rulers, and frame-counters are added as overlays on the video. These allow viewers to make precise measurements of quantities such as position and time.
I. Newton - A reproduction of the preface to Newton's famed Principia (1687) and links to the full text.
