TRIUMF is a facility for research in particle physics and accelerator-based science. It contains the largest cyclotron in the world and produces medical isotopes.
Scientists have their own way to talk about black holes. Want to expand your ability to do just that? Read on to find out how...
A summary of the historic experiment that was performed to determine the electrical charge of the electron.
Cosmological mysteries are numerous, incredible in size, and the possible explanations for them are just as bountiful. Let's explore the supervoid, one of those mysteries, and see what it could be...
Galileo, the great prototype for all scientists, made many discoveries in physics and astronomy. But whose work did he build off of?
Mechanics is a branch of physics which deals with forces, mass and motion with applications in engineering construction, the design of machines, ballistics and space travel.
Exploring the incorrect theories of lift and describing what really happens to an aeroplane wing in the air...
Test which surfaces create more friction, see how strong friction is, learn how to reduce friction, and even discover the side effects of friction. There are sliding friction experiments, a phone book friction experiment, a way to make rice stick together, an experiment to create frictional heat, and lots more friction experiments for all ages.
When asked why the sky is blue, most people are able to come up with a vague statement about some gas called ozone being blue. The real answer, however, is much more interesting.
Often a headache, time paradoxes are hard to fully delve into. Lets try and take a look at a few of them and see what we can learn from them.
This is a review of the concept of "nothing" to help understand the absence of physical particles in the universe.
Already a complicated subject, black holes get even weirder when viewed through the lens of string theory. Read on for some odd possibilities for what black holes really are.
This is only theory and not based on applied physics. I discuss this for the sake of expanding scientific thought on the subject of time.
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?
