LSOP Live: Physics of the Body, November 19, 2021

There is a lot of physics that underlies the way your body works, and we’ll explore 20 different cool experiments that illustrate how principles of electricity, sound, motion, and light are are at work in your body.

We will show you how to make a simple “lie detector” that can tell if you are nervous, how to make yourself three different kinds of dizzy, how to make your hearing more acute, how to make yourself sound bigger, and how to make yourself look bigger. Many of the things we are doing you can do right along with us as we go—this is our most participatory episode yet!
