Speaker: Mike Randall
Tuesday, June 2, 2020
Physics is the study of how things move, how they push and pull on each other, and how they exchange energy. In this Badger Talk, Mike will focus on plasmas: what they are, where they can be found, and what we can do with them. Audience members will be entertained and amazed by fun, fast-paced demonstrations of various plasma devices, including a plasma globe, plasma rocket, Van de Graaff generator, Jacobs ladder, and Tesla coils.
