Centrifugal force is not a real force.This is not to say that you cannot feel its effect. It is called a 'fictional' or 'virtual' force, such as the one you feel when you slam the brakes in your car. i.e. When you slam...

What the real meaning of the Mass-Energy Interconversion Equation is can be a subject of considerable debate, since scientists truly have never defined either mass or energy in any way other than statements auch as, "Mass is an attribute of objects tat exist in space...

By the famous Clock Paradox of Einsteinian Physics a space traveler returning to Earth would be younger than one who remained at home because time would have run slower for the traveler.Let us forget the mathematics that is usually used to "prove" this and...

The "centrifugal" force experienced by an object moving along a curved path is only present in the rotating reference frame of the object. The fact that it does not exist unless you are in the rotating frame is evident from an analysis of Newton's laws...

I wish to debunk the title of this article.There is a common conundrum about racing a turtle (or tortoise) with a headstart, which is this:1. Tortoise starts at point X ahead of you2. By the time you reach X, turtle will have moved to...

Time travel as a described by pop culture movies such as "Back to the Future" and "The Time Machine" is impossible for a number of reasons. Most of these reasons while rather complex in theory can be explained in simplified terms using physics. The first...

The clock paradox is more often referred to as the twin paradox. It, like all paradoxes in science, comes about due to a lack of applicability of a theory to a particular experiment.The twin paradox is based on the verified fact that the faster...

This is rather a touchy subject for me. I have read books on it and studied it and spent quite some time philosophizing over it.To start, I'd like to say that I've only come up with theories, and these theories have many flaws and...

Gravity is a force of interaction between particles contained within the nucleus of an atom. It acts like a magnetic force in which the particles have an attraction for one another. The particles are one of the components of the nucleus of an atom...

This subject continues to fascinate me. Many theories describe that time travel is possible, but probably not as practical as us humans think.Let's just say it is practical. Then this would mean we can run into our other self whether it is the future...
