Mass and Energy

Lecture no. 6 from the course: The Higgs Boson and Beyond

Mass and Energy

Taught by Professor Sean Carroll | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

In this lecture, “classical” physics, as explained by Newtonian and Einsteinian mechanics, provides insight into what makes the Higgs so special. Uncover the key to the Higgs’s uniqueness in the particle zoo—that even at its minimum energy state (its “resting” state), the Higgs field has a large, constant value.

I love these high level physics lectures. Having grown up in the 80s and having gone into the life sciences. I never kept up with these important concepts. mindblowing.
