Complicated? Yes. Possible to understand? For sure. Surprising results? Of course! The road to chaos is mapped here.
In every theory, certain tools are indispensable. Chaos theory is no different, and without phase portraits or phase space we would be dead in the water.
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.
Galileo not only spotted new objects in the sky but also laid the groundwork for advancements in physics. What were they?
Levers can be found everywhere and have been used since ancient times. But why do we use them and what is the science behind how they work?
Particle physics is full of surprises, but to discover a location of tranquility in a storm of instability is amazing. Yet that is exactly what the island of stability is.
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.
While it may ultimately prove to be wrong, scientists know of several ways to test for string theory using many conventions of physics.
With billions of galaxies in the universe there is a huge potential for Earth-like planets with intelligent life. But here are the reasons why we may never find it.
Noise is a term that is used to describe unwanted sounds. Sound is energy in the form of vibrations or oscillitation.
The mathematical notion of "nothing" is actually quite enormous. There is more emptiness in the universe than there is physical substance. Follow along with me as I clarify this concept.
Why does time only go forward? Is there some kind of gravity that relates to time? The gravity of time, or time gravity, is my theory that affects the direction of time—keeping it going only in one direction.
