2022-01-12: How To Simulate The Universe With DFT

  • 06:03: In other words, Newtonian mechanics.
  • 07:46: ... fact in Newtonian mechanics we can not only write down the equations of motion for each particle ...
  • 08:02: But if we want to keep the quantum behaviour of quantum mechanics we can’t throw away most of configuration space like we do in Newtonian mechanics.
  • 10:54: Because they aren’t interacting, the equations of motion for these electrons are separable, just like in Newtonian mechanics.

2021-11-10: What If Our Understanding of Gravity Is Wrong?

  • 09:53: ... acted like Newtonian mechanics on solar system scales, like MOND on galactic scales, and like regular ...

2021-11-02: Is ACTION The Most Fundamental Property in Physics?

  • 05:52: ... motivations in developing general relativity was the fact that Newtonian mechanics failed to correctly predict the orbit of Mercury. If you calculate that ...
  • 18:52: ... Constructor theory might be another alchemy, or it might be another Newtonian mechanics. Shall we find ...

2021-10-20: Will Constructor Theory REWRITE Physics?

  • 01:43: ... can derive all of thermodynamics and Newtonian mechanics and electromagnetism and so on from two master theories: quantum ...

2020-05-11: How Luminiferous Aether Led to Relativity

  • 11:20: ... contradicts Galilean relativity, and so revealed a crack in the sacred Newtonian mechanics. This directly inspired Hendrik Lorentz to derive his Lorentz ...

2019-09-23: Is Pluto a Planet?

  • 03:19: That same motion almost perfectly reflected the clockwork predictions of Newtonian mechanics.

2019-01-30: Perpetual Motion From Negative Mass?

  • 03:19: OK, so how do negative masses work in Newtonian mechanics?
  • 08:42: But this should crudely translate to the case of two equal-sized objects, although not in the simple, linear style of Newtonian mechanics.

2018-05-16: Noether's Theorem and The Symmetries of Reality

  • 05:00: The law of conservation of energy is fundamental in Newtonian mechanics, in which space and time are unvarying and eternal.

2018-02-14: What is Energy?

  • 01:53: Newtonian mechanics had only recently revolutionized physics.
  • 03:04: But that's just Newtonian mechanics.
  • 07:08: Newtonian mechanics is great at describing the motion of simple systems of a few rigid objects.
  • 07:56: ... its conservation has led to new types of mechanics that have supplanted Newtonian mechanics, for example Lagrange mechanics, which, in its simplest form, follows the ...
  • 08:12: It produces the same equations of motion as Newtonian mechanics but without having to keep track of those innumerable fiddly force vectors.

2016-05-25: Is an Ice Age Coming?

2015-08-27: Watch THIS! (New Host + Challenge Winners)

  • 01:26: This is kind of a coincidence of the specific situation of a uniformly dense planet and Newtonian mechanics.

2015-07-15: Can You Trust Your Eyes in Spacetime?

  • 06:38: In Newtonian mechanics, we distinguish inertial and noninertial observers dynamically by using the floating ball test.
