Friction is encountered every moment of every day. Friction can be defined as “the force that opposes motion”. It affects the lives of everyone in incredible ways. Examples of friction’s life-changing qualities can be found everywhere. Imagine if the ability to stop motion...
Newton's first law
By: Gioia Degenaars
Sir Isaac Newton, an English physicist, astronomer, mathematician and philosopher is credited with creating three laws that govern the natural world in terms of energy and motion. These laws are the basic foundation of many physics discussions and calculations. His first law is the most...

Areas of physics Physics is a rich and diverse field of science. It has many unique areas as well as numerous areas of overlap. If one looks at the physics department of a major university and considers the undergraduate and graduate course along with the...
Newton's first law
By: Steven Mars
Newton’s first law of motion was the first of three laws discovered by Sir Isaac Newton. He presented these laws in his book “Principia Mathematica Philosophiae Naturalis” in 1686. The laws of motion describe how objects move. Newton’s first law of motion...
Achieving invisibility
By: William Wraithe
What would it be like to turn invisible at will? Sounds too good to be true, right? Like something straight out of a comic book or movie, right?. You'd be right to be skeptical - I was too, when I first heard of the...

Imagine a car parked anywhere; what could be said about it? (1) Engineers and auto workers had the ability to make the car, and (2) someone bought it, drove it, and parked it. Einstein's vision would be, "the car represents E=mc2." (Note: c2 represents...

Danish physicist, Niels Bohr said that whoever wasn’t shocked by quantum theory, didn’t even understood it! The success of scientific theories, particularly Newton's theory of gravity, led a French scientist, Marquis de Laplace, to establish that the universe is completely deterministic. Laplace believed...

Was Einstein wrong? That's the question being asked by amazed physicists across the globe upon the heels of a report on experiments conducted over three years.Faster-than-light particles measuredScientists at CERN, the home of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) managed to measure subatomic particles called...

Recently the world of particle physics was shaken by a group of CERN scientists who reported tracking sub-atomic particles traveling at faster than light (FTL) speed during an experiment called OPERA. It's a universal speed limit that none other than Albert Einstein said is impossible...

The fundamental forces of nature are the interactions between the particles, which remain unexplained in terms of other kind of forces, or interactions. The most fundamental interactions of nature can be counted as four in number, which can be described as gravitational interactions, electromagnetic interactions...
