Please forgive me if I'm wrong, as I have no formal physics training (apart from some in high school and personal reading), but there's something about Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle that strikes ...
I've always been not so bad in mathematics, but I'm terribly bad at physics. For me, abstract concept are totally understandable, but when it come to reality, I'm lost ! So, for my job, I need to ...
We have two girls, with mass (M). They become close to each other in speed of V. The distance between them is 3L. I was asked to calclute the Angular velocity (w) of the two girls. So I set the ...
A couple of weeks ago I was travelling in a car (120 km/h approximately) and I saw a fly flying in front of me (inside the car, near my nose, windows closed). I wonder how was that possible. Does it ...
I was driving down the road at roughly the speed of traffic. I saw a police officer parked on the side of the road, and also noticed that a Semi was traveling in the lane right next to him. This got ...
Ultimately, the factor limiting the maximum speed of a rocket is: the amount of fuel it carries the speed of ejection of the gases the mass of the rocket the length of the rocket ...
