Why don’t protons and electrons just slam into each other and explode? Why do different elements emit light of different colors? Niels Bohr knew why. And now you will too!
Look, up in the sky, it’s a particle! It’s a wave! Actually it’s both. It’s light! How do we know about this stuff? Well, because of Einstein for one. He did more than E = mc^2, you know. But don’t … Continue reading
Here is a copy of the exam formula sheet with rearrangements of equations. It’s a very long list; it would be useful to make sure that you have the rearrangements (particularly kinematics and gravity) on your own summary sheet.
What if you could power a ship using sunlight instead of wind? Well in space, you can! Solar sails or light sails are pushed with light from the sun. Photons provide a kick when they reflect off the sail pushing … Continue reading
Watch a soda can rip itself apart in a fiery explosion at 11,000fps with a Phantom high speed camera. Running a current through a coil, produces an electromagnet. Turn up the voltage in this experiment, and make that current strong … Continue reading
