Heat is Work and Work is Heat

Oh, my son.... he's four years old now and loves to talk in jibberish just for the fun of it.  Of course, it's always pieces of truth that he's heard elsewhere that he strings together to make nonsense.

Tonight, at the dinner table, to the end of a string of randomness, he adds, "heat is work and work is heat." Oh dear, I thought.  This is what happens when my son sits and watches you tube videos of physics with my physicist husband...

And so, my son and husband sat at the table singing "heat is work and work is heat"--a song that my son is still, half an hour later, singing by himself now as he finishes his dessert.  Great.  Well, at least he'll have some fundamental science down before he heads to Kindergarten in another year.  Just enough to amaze his teacher and confuse his classmates.

For those of you who would love a little physics running through your head in the form of a catchy jingle, have at it.  Hope you enjoy it as much as the men in my house. :)

(Feel free to only listen to the soundtrack here--the video is not that important, only the song... :-P   )
