Passenger airplanes and the theory of relativity
By: Jacob Stanley
Einstein's "Theory of Relativity" is commonly divided into two parts: "special relativity" and "general relativity," and each part results in different effects on your airplane ride. Broadly speaking, special relativity tells us that the laws of physics are the same in all reference frames...

Biography: Michael Faraday
By: Steven Mars
Michael Faraday is well known for his laws of electrolysis and law of induction. He was successful as both a chemist and a physicist. He was born on September 22, 1791 in Newington Butts, Surrey, England. He died August 25, 1867 at the age of...

To make time travel a reality using the speed of light theory then a time machine that can out run the speed of light would need to be created or the machine would have to be able to slow light down. An Introduction to BoseEinstein...
An explanation of Newton's three laws of motion
By: Ramona Taylor
In 1687, Sir Isaac Newton's Three Laws of Motion were first published in the "Principia Mathematica Philosophiae Naturalis." With their introduction, Newton offered an explanation of how and why objects move. His laws create new concepts that redefined the science of mechanics. Newton's First...
An explanation of Newton's three laws of motion
By: Amanda Mittra
The three laws of motion by Sir Isaac Newton changed the face of physics since the mid seventeenth century. In 1687, Newton presented his famous research and deductions in "Principia Mathematica Philosophiae Naturalis" which laid the foundation for modern science and mathematical physics. The...
An introduction to quantum physics and the law of attraction
By: Brenda Nelson
Quantum Physics is branch of science that was made popular through the book and movie The Secret. Most people mistake it for Karma, but indeed it is not the same thing. Let us look at understanding what Quantum Physics is and how it relates...
By: Bhavya Dabas
Sir Isaac Newton first published his three laws of motion in 1687, in 'Philosophi Naturalis Principia Mathematica,' Latin for "Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy," more commonly known simply as 'Principia Mathematica'. His three laws describe the relationship between the forces acting on a...
Mechanics of the Atomic Nucleus
By: R K vanderHoek
Truth Trumps Everything: Of course there could be a basic particle, in fact, there are at least two. The electron is a basic particle that is classified by modern (quantum) physics in a class known as leptons. A basic particle is believed to be a...

Newton's three laws of motion which were written and explained in 1687 are still accepted today. The laws were based upon Galileo's experiments. It has been said that Einstein's Theory of Relativity must modify the laws when speed of an object approaches the speed...
