Forces are everywhere and i never knew how many forces act upon a simple object until this unit in class! A force is a push or pull acting upon an object as a result of its coming into contact with another object. For the purpose of this blog post, i will use a basketball rolling down a hill because that is simple, and hey, its getting late.
So the forces acting upon this object are the normal force, applied force and gravity force. The normal force is the force of a surface acting back on th
Music is a huge part of my life and i never would have thought of the physics involved before this year not just because it didn't matter to me, but because i didn't know anything about it and now i do! Through many videos and lectures, i have learned that when a song is playing, the sound waves that are emitted have many components.
First, the wavelength is the distance from the crest of one wave to the crest of the next one. The frequency is the number of waves that pass a point in each sec
If I have learned anything this year throughout this class it would be that physics is everywhere! In this blog post, I've decided to write about softball because its the only sport that I've played in school and for a long time. There are many aspects of this sport that involve but the two I want to focus on are momentum and nodes.
Momentum is a huge part of the sport because your team is in the field for 50% of the game and at bat for the other 50%. Momentum is what gives you force to hit
