    What is Physics? Physics is a field of science that shows the interaction between matter and energy. It shows physical processes that help us understand better how our universe behaves. Physics also use scientific method that formulates and tests hypothesis which are based on observations and comprehensions. What are the different fields under Physics? PHYSICS PHYSICS dealing with physical processes and their relations in the science of physical chemistry. dealing

    Free Fall Rachel Shea Physics 131 Lab‚ QL Hasbrouck 210 Sept. 21‚ 2014 Abstract This experiment measures the study of motion by observing the force of gravity acting solely upon an object‚ and also measures reaction time. If an object is in free fall‚ the only force acting upon it is gravity. The object used in this experiment was a golf ball that provided some acceleration when dropped. A sensor positioned underneath a table recorded the golf ball’s pattern of motion‚ when dropped. The main

  • Introduction of Physics:

    Introduction of Physics: Physics ("knowledge of nature") is the science concerned with the discovery and understanding of the most basic fundamental laws of the universe that control the way everything in the world around us behaves. Discoveries in basic physics have important ramifications for all of science. Physics attempts to describe the natural world by the application of logic scientific methods‚ including modeling by theoreticians. As a core scientific discipline‚ physics is concerned with

  • Physics of Sports

    Student Project The Physics of Sports Instructions: One of the best (and most fun) ways to explore physics and how it relates to the real-world is through sports. Every sport utilizes multiple physics principles. For this project you will chose a sport and study the physics principles involved. The sport you choose must be an actual sport‚ not a computer simulation or animation You will create a short PowerPoint presentation (5 slides max) summarizing your project. The following outline is designed

  • Physics in the Past

    PHYSICS OF THE PAST One hundred years ago‚ in a poky apartment in Bern‚ Switzerland‚ Albert Einstein‚ then just a 26-year-old patent office clerk still working part-time towards his PhD‚ published five ground breaking scientific papers. Each of these papers‚ written during Einstein’s annus mirabilis ‚ has become a "classic" in the history of science: On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light ‚ which discusses optical photons and photoelectric effects.
