Anyone who has dealt with heating or cooling has heard the term BTU. Not everyone knows that the initials stand for British Thermal Unit. BTU's are the standard by which most heating and cooling appliances are rated. The actual computation for the number of BTU's...

Many factors come into play when deciding which is better: Trains or cars. Cars oftentimes get a bad rap because of the fact that lots of them are on the road but sometimes trains are just as bad if people don't choose to utilize them...
Physics changes: Faster-than-light particles confirmed in second test
By: Terrence Aym
The first test shook up physics, the second that affirmed the original results of particles traveling faster-than-light (FTL) may just shake down the house.CERN physicists confirmed last week that subatomic particles did indeed violate one of Einstein's bedrock equations that nothing can exceed light...
Science first: Light created from a vacuum
By: Terrence Aym
Scientists achieved a miracle in the physics laboratory—using a quantum mirror they created photons from a vacuum.The "Casimir Effect," first predicted more than four decades ago, has been achieved by scientists at Chalmers University of TechnologySQUID and virtual particlesUsing a superconducting quantum...

Bevel gears look different from ordinary gears. This special type of gears can be distinguished from the ordinary or spur gears by looking at the axes of the two shafts as well as the shape of the tooth-bearing faces. The axes of the two shafts...
Tips for understanding physics
By: Anna Saks
Physics. To some people, the subject brings chills down their spines: long hours of brain- wracking word problems with too many given values to use and too many unknown ones to find. To other people, the subject sparks excitement, imagination, and the creativity that has...

According to quantum science, each element of an experimental arrangement generally consists of three components, namely a physical system, measuring device, and observer. Quantum mechanics teaches us that, during the observation of a quantum system, the action of the measuring device affects the objects being...

Isaac Newton was the first man of science to prove it: all objects, irrespective of their nature, composition, size or length possess mass. But the question remained whether there could be a logical explanation for its occurrence or it just happened to be a mere...

The ATLAS (A Toroidal LHC Apparatus) particle accelerator is a physics experiment taking place at the CERN Laboratory in Switzerland. Its focus is to find particles that other detectors are not capable of finding. Three thousand physicists from thirty-eight different countries participate in the experiment...

The Standard Model of Physics neatly organizes matter into building blocks and forces. The building blocks are called the fundamental particles and the forces are called fundamental forces. The standard model describes nuclear interactions between subatomic particles, but does not give up a whole explanation...
