More than a century before the Wright brothers' first flight, a Swiss mathematician named Daniel Bernoulli developed a theory on how it could be accomplished. Based on Newton's 2nd law of gravity Bernoulli showed air will always travel faster over a curved top surface, such...

The force (called lift) that enables an airplane to fly is produced by the application of a physical principle discovered in 1738 by Swiss scientist Daniel Bernoulli (1700-1782). Called "Bernoulli's Law of Differential Pressure," or simply Bernoulli's Principle, it states that as the speed...

Hundreds of people flying thousands of feet above the ground is no longer surprising for today's generation. But think of the time when Leonardo Da Vinci could predict the graphical image of modern airplane. It might not be more than a fantastic dream for the...
Can Molecules be Changed to Atoms
By: Steve Lussing
Before I discuss the actual process whereby a molecule can be changed into an atom under specific, and somewhat difficult to achieve laboratory conditions, it should not go unsaid that a single unit of each element as found in nature can be considered to be...

Behind everything that happens around us lie principles that were discovered centuries ago. As human knowledge reaches its peek, almost every action has a scientific explanation just to satisfy man's curiosity. These principles are then applied in everyday life to lighten workloads and as well...

It is wrong to think of space as being completely devoid of anything. The noted Italian astronomer Paolo Maffei has suggested that the density of matter in the deepest regions of space between the galaxies is in the order of about one hydrogen atom per...

Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, Daniel Bernoulli, Isaac Newton.... Hey, wait a minute! Who the devil is Bernoulli? Unless you're a science geek, trivia freak or into airplanes, it is unlikely that you've ever heard of Daniel Bernoulli. Daniel Bernoulli was a Swiss mathematician and...

If only Daniel Bernoulli and Sir Isaac Newton were alive today. They would have been truly amazed to see an Airbus A380 rise off the runway and climb six miles into the sky. Great scientists as they were, a discussion about who's ideas best explain...

Why Einstein was correct, when he was, in his "Relativity" theorizing, was often because hidden facets of mathematics and of the definitions used in physics allowed the ideas to be usable, even if his reasonings were fallacious. In other words, often, he was lucky.Einstein's...
Is Time Real or Relative
By: Taha Saeed
Time:What are you time? The nothingness that masses from one even after another? Are you infinite? I have yet to decide if you are infinite or not. you are just a concept that humans have invented. Days. Seconds. Minutes. Years. Hours. All just rulers that...
