The Magnus Effect

Gustav Magnus was a German scientist in the 19th century, most known for experimentally testing The Magnus Effect. In 1853, he detailed this explanation of the effect; A spinning object moving through a fluid, departing from its straight path because of pressure differences that develop in the fluid due to changes in velocity induced by…

Black Holes

A black hole is a region of space-time that is so dense that it has an infinite gravity pull at its singularity. The pull is so strong that not even light can escape.  They are produced mainly as a result of collapsed supergiant stars, after the supernova explosion. There are many different kinds of black…

The Yang Mills Theory

The Yang Mills Theory constitutes one of the most important branches of particle physics, and physics in general. Often considered the cornerstone of theoretical physics, the theory was devised by Chinese physicist Chen Ning Yang and American physicist Robert L. Mills in 1954.  The goal of this theory was to be able to explicitly describe…

Genuis

INTRODUCTION Einstein: a Jewish, German, theoretical physicist of the 20th century. He has proved to be one of the most influential figures in science up to this day, teaching us physics that should have been proven half a century ago. Even with the technology today, the breakthrough that Albert Einstein made is what led to…

SNELL’S LAW: Beyond the obvious 

Snell’s Law is one of the first physics formulas students become acquainted with during their study of physics. Once optics makes its appearance, Snell’s law can perhaps be considered one of the most important formulas to be found in this area of study. While it is not a complicated idea to understand, the uses of…

The arrow of time

Arthur Eddington was a British astronomer, mathematician, and physicist in the 20th century. He developed an interesting physics question in 1927 that remains unsolved to this day. It is called the arrow of time problem.          Time appears to be inherently directional: the past is fixed and immutable, accessible only through memory or written documentation; the…

Supersymmetry

Hironari Miyazawa is a Japanese particle and nuclear physicist who is most known for his work on Supersymmetry, which is a symmetry between Mesons and Baryons that he initially postulated in 1966. Supersymmetry is a developed particle physics idea and is a potential candidate for a yet-to-be-discovered complete Standard Model. A supersymmetric extension of the…

Noether’s theorem

Noether’s theorem states that every differentiable symmetry of the action of a physical system with conservative forces has a corresponding conservation law. This theorem only applies to symmetries that are continuous and smooth in physical space.  It was first published in the year 1918, although it was proven a few years earlier by a mathematician…

The butterfly effect

To properly understand the butterfly effect, we first need to understand Chaos Theory. Chaos Theory is a study in mathematics and it focuses on the study of chaos. There can be seemingly random states of disorder in Dynamical systems that are regulated by laws that are extraordinarily sensitive to beginning conditions or minor changes. Dynamical…

Climate sensitivity-Understanding climate change

Climate change is something we are experiencing and a real issue the Earth is facing. Awareness is being raised and scientists are leading this battle against time. However there are still many questions and loopholes surrounding the area of the study of climate; climate sensitivity being the most uncharted out of them.   So what exactly…
