Everyday Physics

Oh, that explains it!

OLLI Study Group OLLI Study Group
Do questions like, how do planes fly?, how old is the Earth?, and why are flames orange? pique your interest? Are you just generally curious about how physics can explain the world around you? Then this is the course for you!

We’ll combine physics, history, demonstrations and everyday physical intuition to
explore the answers to these questions and many others. This course for those 50 and above is a sequel to the OLLI course, “Why is the Sky Blue?” There are no pre-requisites, nor is any background in physics required.

Instructor Brian Worthmann is an Applied Physics Ph.D. student at U-M and will lead these fascinating lectures for two hours on Mondays from September 18 through November 20.
