In some ways we would not have computers today were it not for physics. Furthermore, the needs of physics have stimulated computer development at every step. This all started due to one man&#x...
Physics and Religion
PHYSICS AND RELIGION. Physics describes the material world on the basis of repeatable observation and in terms of concepts such as mass, energy, space, and time. As the earliest o...
Is a Grand Unified Theory of the Fundamental Forces Within the Reach of Physicists Today?
Viewpoint: Yes, history, recent advances, and new technologies provide reasonable hope that a grand unified th...
Physics and astronomy, from which all other sciences derive their foundation, are attempts to provide a rational explanation for the structure and workings of the Universe. The creation of the...
Physics and Art
Physics and the arts have always had a complex, interactive relationship. Classical Greek art and philosophy (the forerunner of modern science) shared the same goal: the description of...
To find out how launch angle affects range and time of flight, an experiment must be conducted. Some of the instruments needed to perform this experiment is a timer, 5 meter sticks, and a marble laun...
Aim of the investigation
The aim of the pendulum investigation is to see what will happen if I change a up-and-down even as I swing a pendulum and see the effect which it has on the pendulums time...
For my physics coursework, I have been asked to investigate the factors which affect the way in which a squash ball will bounce. I looked into a few different factors, including; Heat of the ball, la...
Aim - To investigate the linear relationship between static friction (FS) and the normal force (FN), i.e., (FS) = µS * (FN)
Question - Why should you ensure that the string ...
The human eyes are very important in the world we live in. Sure we can survive without them, yet having the ability to see makes life much more bearable. Having the ability to see brings beauty t...
The Giant Drop is a free fall ride, which allows the rider to experience the feeling of weightlessness. Essentially, it is a gondola, which is lifted 120 metres above the ground along a thick pole, th...
The vortex is a rotary ride that is like a centrifuge, in which a rider spins around. It is basically a machine where the rider stands against the slanted wall of a circular shell...
I found out that my prediction was correct, that the hotter the hydrochloric acid the faster the reaction would be because the acid particles would have more kinetic energy therefore there w...
To investigate if different types of balls effect how high they bounce.
I am going to drop six different balls from 1m and measure how high they bounce. I will drop each on...
Basketball, fast-paced game played on a rectangular court, generally indoors, by two five-player teams. Now picture this game being played on the moon. Seems nearly impossible, but it can be done. Th...
Question: Is the double-slit interference pattern consistent with the wave theory of light"
Answer: Yes, the double-slit interference pattern consistent with the wave theory of light.
Factors affecting the resistance of a wire
To find out how the length affects a wires resistance.
Nichrome-Area 0.164 x 10-6m2
-Resistivity 1.15 x 10-6 ohm metres
Resistivity is a pro...
As stated by the relativity laws we are able to understand the relative motion of matter at higher velocities and the phenomena of length contraction and time dilation.
We have arguments stating thes...
