More than half of PhD students leave physics after earning their degree. The reasons include a lack of financial reward or job security.
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.
The matter around you is composed of atoms but if we delve deeper we can find subatomic parts made of quarks and gluons. But they don't work according to our current understanding of physics.
You are walking down the road when, "eek!" you fall into a huge pool of quicksand. There is nobody near enough to hear your cries for help. How will you escape? Can you really drown in quicksand? How can your practice escaping from quicksand from the safety of your own home? This recipe for Cornstarch Quicksand is very similar to the real thing, it is easy to make, and it even lets you walk on water.
This hub answer the questions: What is Physics? What are the branches of Physics? If you want to know about Physics, then read this hub.
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.
Galileo not only spotted new objects in the sky but also laid the groundwork for advancements in physics. What were they?
The relationship between temperature and volume is described by one of the pieces of the ideal gas law, also called Charles's law.
In 1905, Albert Einstein published four groundbreaking physics papers and announced his genius to the world.
This is a review of the concept of "nothing" to help understand the absence of physical particles in the universe.
Students usually make unnecessary mistakes in their examinations that cost them precious marks. These are some of the common errors they make in their electricity and magnetism exams.
In this article, we'll look at the derivation of Albert Einsteins famous equation E = MC2 show how you can come up with it using simple algebra and Pythagorean's Theorem.
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...
What are Decibel levels and why are they so important? How can you measure them and when are they too "loud"?
A summary of the historic experiment that was performed to determine the electrical charge of the electron.
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.
A magnet is an object that has a magnetic field strong enough to influence other materials. The molecules in a magnet are aligned to all face one way, which gives the magnet its magnetic field. Sometimes the molecules can align permanently, making a...
Galileo, the great prototype for all scientists, made many discoveries in physics and astronomy. But whose work did he build off of?
Wheels are to 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?
Exploring the incorrect theories of lift and describing what really happens to an aeroplane wing in the air...
The first calipers were seen in China and were used for not only measurements but as a directional compass for ships at sea. This hub provides a list of different calipers and how they are used.
A detailed overview on the working of magnets whether you're looking for examination help, project guidance or knowledge to satisfy your curious mind.
A summary of the key topics in nuclear reactor physics and a look at the worst nuclear accidents (Chernobyl and Fukushima).
The physics of a waterfall are curious. The second law of thermodynamics says that things tend toward a more disordered state. Is the second law saying that destruction (erosion) wins over creation?
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
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.
Involving many principles of science, this particular paradox follows a consequence of black hole mechanics and has far-reaching implications, no matter what the solution is.
Nanotechnology is not a complicated notion, but it sure can sound fancy. If you've heard about it but you'd like to learn a little more, here's a quick primer on nanotech.
A short explanation of the protocol for quantum teleportation, a quantum computing technique for transporting qubits over large distances.
Speed can be measured in many different ways and the instruments used to measure speed vary with the job.
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.
Free physics problems help online with solutions on average velocity and average speed that walk you through each problem.
Dark matter and dark energy are still huge mysteries in astrophysics. Alternate theories exist to help explain them.
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.
