Who cares about maths?
The team behind the University of Newcastle's highly successful 'What is Engineering?' video has now created 'The cool maths behind engineering' to encourage higher participation in mathematics.
This short educational STEM video is targeted mainly at high school students - especially those who are looking to study engineering at university.
The animation brings to life the math and engineering behind: the New York Times Square fireworks display, a parachute jump from space and generating renewable energy in Denmark.
We get a glimpse of the equations and calculations involved in determining mass, launch velocity, terminal velocity, drag coefficient, wind resistance and power generation capacity.
In addition to mathematics, it touches on the applications of aerospace engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, mechatronics engineering and software engineering.
This is the latest in a line of 'explainer' videos created by the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment, available on their YouTube Channel.
