the physics behind taking your physics test!

After taking this class we now can all answer the question that stumped us at the beginning of the year; What is physics? its everything. The crazy part to think is that its actually true. Anything anyone could ever think of has to do with physics. Tomorrow we take our final for this class, struggling to remember every little thing we can. The crazy part is that taking that test is physics. If we're lucky, we'll drive to the test. How does a car run? and electric circuit. physics. Alon

The solar system; why planets orbit.

We look up in the night sky to see stars and the moon, we don't think much of it. But there is so much about our solar system that we don't know. Our solar system can be defined as a star and all the objects orbiting it as well as all the material in that system. Our solar system includes the sun together with the eight planets and their moons as well as all other celestial bodies that orbit the sun. Ancient astronomers observed light that appeared to move among the stars. They called these

Shooting stars

A clear night allows us to look up at the sky and see something wonderful; stars. How many stars? countless. Basically stars are exploding balls of gas, mostly hydrogen and helium. The huge reaction occuring in stars releases electormagnetic radiation which allows us to see them. A star is a giant ball of plasma which is held together by gravity. Stars are fueled by the nuclear fusion of hydrogen to form helium inside. The relase energy from the central regions of the star provides the pressure

why do Iphone screens shatter so easily?

Any iphone user would be afriad of their phone looking like the one in the photo below. So many people own the Iphone, yet is it really a safe phone to have? no. Being an owner myself i will admit, i love this little piece to technology. Although it is very fun and helpful, it is not durable. Iphone 4 varies from the 3G and 3GS because the iphone 4 has both a front and back screen composed of only glass, whereas the front of the iphone 3 is glass front. When remaking the iphone design for

Physics of Field Hockey

I am a forward for my school's field hockey team, so I have learned the best ways to score and avoid defense. But back in the fall before I studied a lot of physics I didn't realize physics controlled my sport! Field hockey is a great example of physics! I love my sport, but before physics I never stopped to think why the sport actually works, and why things happen the way they do. Field hockey is physics because of friction, momentum, and force. IHS is lucky enough to have a turf. This m
