While the speed of light in vacuum is a universal constant ($c$), the speed at which light propagates in other materials/mediums may be less than $c$. This is obviously suggested by the fact that ...
I am trying to get a common understanding from these two previous questions: Why does the mass of an object increase when its speed approaches that of light? What happens if light/particles exceeded ...
I know that it is technically impossible to reach the speed of light in vacuum since the mass of the object travelling would reach infinity. However in a medium, would there be some sort of ...
I am thinking if it's possible to detect Cherenkov radiation in water caused by dissolved natural potassium (KOH) in it without using photo-multipliers. The main question is does 1 beta particle ...
It is a said fact that the speed of light is insurmountable. But can the validity of this fact be questioned in another medium? If I pass a beam of light in, say water (here the light speed is ...
Recently, I asked a question about the plausibility of green superheated plasma (like the green plasma blasts in many video games) in real life. I actually found a post in the SciFi Stack Exchange ...
