There have been previous questions (e.g. here and here) on Physics.SE about the mechanism that makes ice skating possible. Reviewing these, as well external references, it seems pretty clear that the ...
When the size distribution of particles in an aerosol is obtained, there is always a bimodal distribution. The small peak accounts for the particles that are in sub-nanometer size range and the larger ...
The stress applied on a rod is linearly proportional to its strain. But shouldn't the opposite be true? I mean if you pull particles further apart doesn't the force they apply on each other decrease ...
Assume that in a game of tug-of-war the rope ends up breaking. What concepts/factors would contribute to the position of where the rope breaks?
Some expensive electronics or mechanical devices are designed to be shock-resistant. However, the manufacturers often market the level of shock-resistance in units of g-force (I know g-force is really ...
