More math equations
By: Mishra Planeswalker
When studying kinematics (the study of motion) it is important to know a few essential mathematical equations. These equations can be further developed by the use of variable substitution, as well as other mathematical operations. When taking advanced physics courses, calculus is a recommended tool...

"The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once." EinsteinTime is an increment of measure devised by human beings to describe a rate of change (a ratio of motion described by one object in relationship to another). Time is not...
Does the Large Hadron Collider have the Potential to Destroy Earth
By: Chris Webber
Does the Large Hadron Collider have the potential to unlock the secrets of the universe? Absolutely! Will it bring us fantastic new technologies and revolutionise science? Definitely! Will it destroy the Earth? No way.The thing is, part of the problem is that what actually...
Theory of relativity: Special relativity explained
By: Steve Bain
Everyone has heard of Einstein's theory of relativity. Everyone has also heard of his most famous equation E = mc^2 . But what about the other consequences of his theory? It turns out that there is a lot more to his theory than just that one...
Introduction to universal gravitation
By: Steve Bain
Gravity is the force that holds our solar system together. Without it, planets would simply float off into space, remaining un-deviated until they collide with another body. The detailed study of gravity began with Galileo, who was the first to notice that all objects, regardless...
Radiation through a vacuum
By: Author Name Withheld 243
Aren't you curious about how heat spreads? Did you think about what exactly happened when you touched something hot? Heat transfer is separated into three sections. Heat can be transferred from a warmer to cooler object by conduction, convection, and radiation. Each of the various...
Lhc Black Holes Destroying Earth
By: Joe Mccane
LHC Black Hole Fears Are Evaporating Weather or not the LHC(Large Hadron Collider) will destroy earth has been a world wide fear, and it is mostly the fear of the unknown. The fear comes from the possibility of the collisions making a black holes, which...
Alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC): A simple explanation
By: Steve Bain
The difference between alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) is really as simple as their titles suggest. Direct current is steady and flows in one direction (hence, it flows directly) while alternating current rises and falls as it continually changes direction (hence, it alternates)...
Can Molecules be Changed to Atoms
By: Ernest Capraro
Given that we break molecules down to atoms on a regular basis, the correct answer can only be along the lines of "Ya, sure, you-betcha."A molecule is a group of atoms held together by bonds. There is nothing physical to a bond, it is...
Nuclear Standard Model
By: R K vanderHoek
The answer to this question depends on what is meant by the "Standard Model". Preface: As defined by present day physics, there is actually more than one Standard Model. There is a Standard Model of particle and nuclear physics, which incorporates quantum mechanics and quark...
