  • Anti Matter

    1283 words - 6 pages

    Introduction Ordinary matter has negatively charged electrons circling a positively charged nuclei. Anti-matter has positively charged electrons - positrons - orbiting a nuclei with a negative charge - anti-protons. Only anti-protons and positrons are able to be produced at this time, but scientists in Switzerland have begun a series of experiments which they believe will lead to the creation of the first anti-matter element -- Anti-Hydrogen. The Research Early scientists often made two mistakes about anti-matter. Some thought it had a negative mass, and would thus feel

    By [email protected] One aspect of physics in my life is gravity. Whenever I loose my balance, whether I'm on a bike, walking, or trying to stand on one leg, I will fall down. This is because every mass is attracted to every other mass, so my body is attracted to the earth, and the earth is attracted to my body, only not as much, because my body has a much smaller mass than the earth. This is also why when I drop something; it falls down, instead of just floating there like it would in space. This is very important in my life, because if I am not caref

    The Age Of The Universe

    1788 words - 8 pages

    INTRODUCTION: The goal of the project is to find the age of the universe according to the theory that there were equal amounts of the two uranium isotopes U235 and U238 at the time of the Big Bang. At present, there are 137.7 U238 atoms for each atom of U235. We know that the half-life of U235 is 0.71 billion years, and the half-life of U238 is 4.51 billion years, we used this information to determine the age of the universe. We started by looking at the problem mathematically and then after figuring out the age of the universe with the above information. We proceed

    Aristarchus (c. 310 - 230 BC)  Aristarchus suggested a simple heliocentric model with the Sun at the centre of the universe and the Earth and other planets moving around the Sun in circular paths. The Earth rotates once a day and the Moon also moves around the Earth. This model was not favoured for a very long time, because:  Scientific knowledge was limited at that time and people relied on common sense. A moving Earth defied common sense.  The model predicted stellar parallax. Stellar parallax, however, was not detected until 1838 by using a telescope.  I

    History Leading To The Creation Of The Atomic Bomb

    Atomic science began many centuries ago with experimenting and probing into the nature and structure of matter. This began with ancient philosophers and alchemists. Science began emerging with Thales of Miletus (634-546 BC), the Ionian Greek, who described the power of attraction in electricity long before electricity was known. Democritus (460-370 BC), a Greek philosopher was called the "father of the atom." Although he had no experimental evidence to support him, Democritus argued that all matter must consist of a number of fundamental pieces. He called these pieces "atoms" for the Greek wo

    A laser is an optical device that emits coherent light (electromagnetic radiation). The term "laser" is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.[1][2] Typically, lasers are thought of as emitting light in a narrow, low-divergence beam, with a narrow wavelength spectrum ("monochromatic" light). Lasers need not have either characteristic, however: it is the coherence of the laser's output that is distinctive. Most other light sources emit incoherent light, which has a phase that varies randomly with time and position. The first working laser was demonstrated on

When the pendulum is displaced from its place of rest, the restoring force will cause the pendulum to oscillate about the equilibrium position. A basic example is the simple gravity pendulum or bob pendulum.
