but perhaps, given sufficient throwing speed If you throw your egg too fast, the force due air resistance $$F = \frac{cW\cdot A\cdot \rho\cdot v^2}{2}$$ will exceed the 50 Newton you mentioned before and the egg will break. and, or, car speed, perhaps it is possible If the car speed is fast enough the glass will of course break, since even ...

One of the problems with doing experiments on static electricity is that the static charge can leak away while you're trying to do your measurements, and one of the main ways the charge leaks away is due to humidity of the air. I don't know what the humidity is in Kolkata, but I would guess that it's much higher during the monsoon that it is during the ...

I can easily punch through most unsupported (free in the air) paper and can do the same with cardboard boxes (all the way through both sides effectively spearing the box on my arm) and fingertip striking through all the above with all five fingers. The most difficult target is real playing cards. I cannot do more than dent them. Force and speed compared to ...

When you say you don't know your latitude - then why don't you measure that first? Measure the maximum altitude of the same (assumed very distant) astronomical object from two different places on the Earth's surface on the same day of the year. Measure the length between the two places. The method was used by Eratosthenes. A variant, used by Islamic ...

No there's no Test Principles of Quantum Field theory using everyday objects, Since quantum field theory (QFT) is a theoretical framework for constructing quantum mechanical models of subatomic particles in particle physics and quasiparticles in condensed matter physics

For what it's worth, you might want to look up the original paper on the theory of helical diffraction: "The structure of synthetic polypeptides. I. The transform of atoms on a helix" W. Cochran, F. H. Crick and V. Vand, (1952) Acta Crystallographica 5, 581-86. This is the seminal work that allowed Crick and Watson to deduce the DNA structure. It is not a ...
