Physics aims to give elegant explanations for the phenomena observed within in our universe. These explanations are encoded in the mathematical language of equations. What are the most important and beautiful equations in physics?
A description of the historic oil drop experiment that was performed by Robert Millikan to determine the electrical charge of the electron. Included is a diagram of the apparatus used and a discussion of the forces acting on the oil droplets.
Technology is getting smaller and smaller. So how are changes with nanowires making macroscopic impacts?
You may be very surprised to learn how physics affects things we experience every day. I know I was.
While it may ultimately prove to be wrong, scientists know of several ways to test for string theory using many conventions of physics.
Quantum computers are the future, but they are incredibly challenging right now. What are we doing to resolve the quantum memory component?
Students have an excellent chance of doing well on a physics exam if they work efficiently throughout the physics course and follow some tips for writing exams.
Quantum entanglement is a tricky topic. Experimentation can help clarify a few things, so check out some examples.
With billions of galaxies in the universe, there is a vast potential for Earth-like planets with intelligent life. But here are the reasons why we may never find it.
This talks about the concept of Newton's three laws of motion. Newton's laws of motion describe the relationship between a body and the forces acting upon it, and its motion in response to those forces. This also includes scenarios and examples about the first, second, and third laws of motion.
The concept of emptiness in physics is enormous. There is mostly physical nothingness in the entire universe. Follow along with me as I explain this.
Ballistics is a branch of mechanics which deals with the motion of projectiles launched into the air or space. Solving these type of problems involves using Newton's equations of motion
Water has some properties that can make it a good refrigerant. It also possesses some undesirable properties that makes its application as a refrigerant very challenging and inefficient to implement.
