The Four Forces of Nature

After the massive success of my series of talks on Quantum Mechanics (some of them have had more than two views!), I thought I’d have a go at explaining how the four forces of nature arise.

This is much less technical than the previous set of talks and is aimed at general viewers rather than those studying at university level.

The first video describes the four forces: gravity, electromagnetism and the strong and weak nuclear forces. It shows how very different they are, and explains that there’s still a great deal that we don’t understand.

In the next video, I’l start to explain where these forces come from.

  1. Speaking as a no nothing artist please may I offer my profound gratitude for this explanation of the forces of nature. I am one of the two viewers of your riveting series on maths but gave up when I realised how far from understanding I am. The basics therefore are the best I can hope to grasp. I hope to become a loyal follower for the rest of the show.
