- What Do You Need to Learn Upper Level Physics?
Suppose you want to learn upper level physics. Do you have to use a physics textbook or a lecture? Is that the only way to learn? What Is Upper Level Physics? Traditionally, there are three big things in the physics curriculum: Classical Mechanics Electricity and Magnetism Quantum Mechanics At the introductory level, student typically study […]
- The Evolution of Airplanes
In a new paper in the Journal of Applied Physics, researchers apply the Construcal Law to airplanes, showing "that we can witness evolution in our lifetime by documenting the evolution of a flow system that is a little more than a century old: the flying 'human-and-machine species'.
- This Is The Physics Lesson Of The Future, And It Looks Insanely Fun
Local Projects teams up with the New York Hall of Science to build an app that reveals the physics of the playground. On a breezy spring afternoon at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, designer Jake Barton is watching a pair of middle schoolers chuck an iPod across a playground while another kid films the scene with an iPad. This is the physics lesson of the future, and it looks like a ...

The Wonders of Physics, a long-running science outreach effort at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will host a special preview of its new presentation, "The Physics of Plasma," as part of a fundraising event Aug. 15.
- Crisis Or Challenge? The Physics Of Today
We don't have all the answers; many big questions hang over the world of theoretical physics. Is this business as usual? Or symptom of a major crisis in our understanding of nature?
- Law of physics governs airplane evolution
( Duke University ) Scientists have found that a law of physics predicts the evolution of commercial airliners and also provides guidelines for future designs.
- Birthday bash to celebrate laser inventor Charles Townes’ 99th
Laser inventor Charles Hard Townes, professor emeritus of physics at the University of California, Berkeley, turns 99 on July 28, and an adoring campus is throwing him a long-overdue birthday party.
- Do airplanes evolve like birds?
The development of aircraft over the past century has followed the same patterns as the evolution of flying birds, says an engineer who seeks to apply the laws of physics to evolution.
- China’s super collider a game changer?
If approved, the project could overtake the 27 km Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, Europe’s particle-physics laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland.
