Understanding density and why objects float on water
By: Nick Ford
The easiest way to understand density and why objects float in water is to walk in the footsteps of a great mathematician. In the third century BC King Hieron II of Syracuse had a problem. A goldsmith had made a beautiful new crown that was...
An explanation of Newton's three laws of motion
By: Reynold Conger
Sir Isaac Newton was one of those renaissance men who made contributions in a number of fields. What separates him from the rest of the scholars of history is that so much of his teaching has endured with minimum change. Before his time, no one...
Classifying radioactive decay
By: Mishra Planeswalker
In the world of nuclear physics, there are numerous methods of radioactive decay which an element can undergo. Each of these has different implications for the element and its surroundings. These different types of decay can explain why multiple instances of the same element or...
The best sources of energy for the future
By: Lucien Beauley
Solar Power: Source of Endless EnergyWith Global Warming on many people's minds, do we have any ideas of the best way to lessen the impact on our future, or maybe a possible relief of its possible ravages or even a possible key to its eventual...
By: Tarek Musslimani
Quantum mechanics is a theory of mechanics that applies to small particles such as electrons and atoms. It was suggested as an alternative theory to classical mechanics after the failure of the latter to explain physical experiments such as the blackbody radiation. At the beginning...
Exploring the possibility of parallel universes
By: Jordan Cropper
Parallel universes; the very words sound like the products of an overactive science fiction writer’s mind. Yet once again, it seems that nature holds no qualms about surprising us; Parallel universes are now a viable theory that may help us to understand any number...
The difference between nuclear fission and nuclear fusion
By: D. Vogt
Both nuclear fission and nuclear fusion are both processes which, with the appropriate technology, can be used to produce large amounts of energy - either for power, or for destructive purposes. However, they are actually quite different chemical processes. Essentially, nuclear fission involves splitting atoms...
How heat travels
By: Gordon D Easingwood
Heat is the most commonly found form of energy found also called thermal energy. There are three ways in which heat travels, these are convection, conduction and radiation. Heat generally transfers itself in the most efficient manner possible. Heat always transfers itself from the hotter...
The Large Hadron Collider: Greatest physics experiment in the world
By: Dean L. Sinclair
The Large Hadron Collider: Greatest Physics Experiment in the World Introductory summary: This writer takes the view that, although the Hadron Collider is, undoubtedly, the "Greatest Physics Experiment in the World," it may also go down in history as the most expensive, colossal failure...
A biography: Nikola Tesla
By: Annalyn Andriyenko
Nikola Tesla, is the great "creator" of electricity. He is best known for making marketable use of electricity and even other advances with the use of electricity and electromagnetism, which was a great find at the time and marked a great point in history. Nikola's...
