Daily Use of Physics

 Daily Use of Physics Jason L. McDuffy University of Memphis Physics 1 (online) Project 1 Daily Use of Physics Physics is considered to be a powerful lens that helps people view the everyday world. Physics is reflected in the everyday phenomena, puzzles and toys that offer a variety of interesting challenges leading to deep and interesting problems that derive from science and mathematics. It provides us an understanding of energy, motion and explains...

Physics of Star Trek

The Physics of Star Trek – Warp Speed “Engage.” One simple command that triggers an entire series of complex reactions deep in the core and within the warp nacelles of the Starship Enterprise. Engage implied not only a command to fly off into the unknown reaches of space, but also a revolution of thinking that combined fundamental physics with the innovative ideas of the future. Warp technology, as envisioned by the writers of Star Trek, can be linked to today’s world of physics: Newton’s third...

Apollo 13 Movie Physics Essay

wondered what it would be like to fly in space or work on the crew at NASA that helps the astronauts get home safely? These two jobs both use many of the laws of physics. In fact, almost everything they do involves physics. Apollo 13 is a movie that epitomizes what those jobs are like and how much physics is required. The three main laws of physics in the movie were Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation, Newton’s First Law, and Newton’s Third Law. One main law in Apollo 13 was Newton’s Law of Universal...

PDP Physics Lab Report 01

PDP Physics Lab Report – 01 NAME: Wang Xueqian DATE: 2014/06/21 Introduction In this experiment, we will investigate the relationship between the linear speed of an object and magnitude of centripetal force acting on it. We will use a stopper moving in a circle to create an upward force on the hanging mass; at equilibrium, the upward force on the mass will exactly equal the centripetal force. Apparatus Two-hole Stopper Plastic Tube Plastic Clip Electronic balance Hooked Masses Stop Watch String...

Module 1 Physics: The Basic Science What this module is about The study of science has two branches namely, the life sciences and the physical sciences. The life sciences include biology, zoology and botany. The physical sciences branch into areas such as geology, astronomy, chemistry and physics. However, physics is more than part of physical sciences because it does not only deal with matter and energy but it also deals with the other basic concepts like motion, forces, heat, sound, light...
