Though I understand that this presentation was targeted towards an audience that understands physics on a deeper level, I would have appreciated (as a high school graduate) understanding the mathematics behind Einstein's general relativistic waves equations to understand the derivation of the strain constant. Otherwise, the lecture was great and interesting!

The mathematics is really complicated so that even a person with physics undergraduate degree can't understand. So, don't worry if you didn't get it entirely.

The video is insightful about the journey from how the whole concept of Gravitational Waves started from the Einstein's feild equations till the experiments that have been carried our from 1940s. First with the bar and then with the concept of sending light between 2 masses.
