BU Classroom: Lessons From The X-Men

Physics professor Andy Cohen gives you a tour of his latest Boston University undergraduate course, [...]Cinema Physica. In the class, Professor Cohen uses Hollywood movies to introduce and illustrate physical laws and concepts. Cohen uses The Abyss to discuss fluids and pressure, for instance, and X-Men to talk about electricity and magnetism. In this clip, Cohen suggests that Speed 2, while highly entertaining, might not have gotten all its physics right.
