Understanding projectile motion
By: Chandra Wijaya
Throwing a ball vertically upward, we can catch it right back to our hand. The ball leaves our hand. Then it reaches the highest point. It comes back to our hand, exactly on its initial place. In other case, throwing the ball at a certain...
How energy is created from heat
By: Andrew Smith - 514754
The idea that energy can be created from heat is a misnomer. Heat is energy. More specifically, heat is energy in motion, or moving from one area of the system to another. This fact has been studied countless times and has lead humanity to the...
Wormholes and FTL travel: Is science fiction and science edging closer together?
By: Rick Badman
According to the laws of hyperlight physics, the energy used to hyperacclerate a craft beyond the speed of light is less than the energy used for propulsion if the crafts travel the same distance. That means it may take less energy to reach a...
The super C velocities debate in Physics
By: Rick Badman
Hyperlight physics, the physics of traveling beyond the speed of light, once achieved, will increase our scientific and technical knowledge to such an extent that it will be like leaving a closet and entering the Superdome in those fields. Einstein may have said nothing...
Energy from nuclear fusion
By: Rick Badman
There are various approaches to creating a fusion reaction. There is laser fusion, microwave fusion, and fission/fusion which combines charged particles, particle beams, and compression fields to produce a controlled fusion reaction. And not all fusion reactions produce helium and energy. There will also be...
Is Time Real or Relative
By: Erik Setser
To begin, I would like to point out the faulty labeling of the two sides of this argument. As it is stated, it implies that believing in the relativity of time denotes a disbelief in time being real. A better argument would be between time...

Isaac Newton's laws of motion might be difficult to understand, but hopefully after reading my article, you will have a clearer understanding of Newton's laws. The first law is: A body persists its state of rest or of uniform motion unless acted upon by an...
Explanation of thermal expansion of a substance
By: Andrew Smith - 514754
When explaining thermal expansion of a substance it is helpful to understand that, at least to my knowledge, there are two types of thermal expansion: Linear and Volumetric. Linear expansion is what happens when you have a solid rod of any one substance, for...
The solid matter with the lowest density
By: Jacob Stanley
The solid material with the lowest known density is called aerogel. It was original invented by chemist S.S. Kistler in 1931 as part of a bet. The article reporting his discovery is available online. The idea was to somehow remove all the liquid from...
The issues around nuclear power
By: Rand E Oertle
THE STATES OF FEAR AND DENIAL America has two new states. The first is the great state of Fear and the second is the great state of Denial. These two states represent the utter distortion of nuclear power and its associated issues. There is another...
