Drag Racing

Have you ever been in the car sitting at a red light and you know the person next to you wants to get in the same lane as you? If you are a nice person you may slowly accelerate and let them in ahead of you, but like a lot of drivers will accelerate just as fast (if not faster) and try to eiether keep them in their own lane, or get past them so that they enter the lane behind you. This situation I have just prefaced you with is, essentially drag racing. However, there are many other componen

More Ghost Hunting Physics!

While watching another episode of Ghost Adventures today, I noticed that they had an interesting camera that they were using. It is called a full spectrum camera, meaning that it captures all of the light waves known to exist visible to humans, or not. Or so most people would think. In doing a little research, I found that theses models of camera only capture Ultraviolet Rays and Infrared Rays. By using this camera, they hope to be able to capture what they call an "unexplained apparation" of a

Physics of Ghost Hunting

Lately a lot of technology has been developed in order to help Ghost Hunters attain evidence of the Other Side. I regularly watch Ghost Adventures which is a team of 3 investigators who go on lock downs to "haunted" locations and investigate and ultimately make a decision based on the evidence they gather, whether a location is haunted or not. The more I watch it, the more I realize how much physics is actually involved in the hobby. A lot of their equipment has to do with electromagnetic energy

The effects of G-Force

If you've ever been to an airshow with flight demonstration teams with either the Navy's Blue Angels or the Air force's Thunderbirds, you've probably seen them pull some stunts that seem almost impossible according to the laws of physics. The fact is these pilots are highly trained and have over 1,000 flight hours. Notice that they do not wear the flight suits or helmets that regular fighter pilots wear? This is because they have performed the maneuvers so many times that they know what their bo
