  1. Thanks very much for this - appreciated greatly!!! Excellent work :-)

  2. Thanks
    You are awesome.Me and my friends are realy thankful to you.
    please upload A2's topics.

    1. Thanks. Glad the videos are useful.

      Sorry, I have no A2 videos. I upoad each video as soon as I have made it. I make the videos whenever I have free time - but I have only a limited amount of free time unfortunately.

  3. Hi Steve..Brilliant videos
    I would be so grateful if you could help me with a small moment problem. Is there any way of emailing you

    1. Hi Lee,

      Sorry, I don't give out my personal email.

      If you leave a question using a YouTube-comment for the relevant video (e.g. M14a) I might be able to reply via the comment system,

      You could also try posting your question in the Physics section of Yahoo Answers; I (and others) often reply to these, especially when the poster includes an explanation of their difficult and/or what they have tried so far.

      As a general rule I won't provide online help to individuals on request or I would be overwhelmed!


    2. Hi Steve
      I perfectly understand. Thank you for the reply. I will take a shot at the Yahoo section
      Although saying that I would be willing to pay a reasonable fee for an independent assessment of a small moment problem of a device underwater. We did two assessments and so far we have received to 2 different answers to the same problem.
      We are a small company recently set up working on desalination technologies.
      If you feel you can help please feel free to email me at
