the physics of a car

A car is the main thing people use to get around. But people usually just get in and go, and then hit the brake either at a stop sign or a stop light. Then they hit the gas when that person is able to go. But driving a car has a lot more than just hitting the gas and brake. There is a lot of factors that have to deal with physics involved. First, there is many forces acting on a car when it is at rest and when it is moving. Some of those forces are the normal force, which is the car itself. A

physics of a bed

This is where everybody goes after their day. It is supposed to be comfortable so people can relax after a long day of whatever they were doing. A bed can be the difference between being tired or rested for the next day.4 The bed has many forces that work on it at one time. There is the normal force that is acting on a bed, is the bed itself. A force of friction that happens on a bed is when your sheets move, this can cause friction. The force due to gravity is yourself plus the bed. You can

Physics of a Goose

There is many types of geese that fly around, that you might not even notice. The most common type of goose is the canadian, this is one that has a black neck, brown on the top side of the body and white on the underside of the body. The next kinda is the snow goose, which is mostly all white, and their wing tips are darker like blue or black in color. Lastly, there is a goose named the lesser. They are usally smaller than the other two just mentioned, but this type is usally blue in color. W

Physics of riding a bike

Before we got our liscenses we would either depend on our two feet, a bike, or finding somebody to give us a ride. We were taught to ride a bike with training wheels and then just two wheels. Parents always by your side until you get the hang of it enough and they just kick back and watch. But they never told you the physics that went into riding a bicycle. The potential energy that a person could have towards riding a bike starts when they are standing over the frame, either thinking about w

why guns have recoil

Whenever you shoot a gun you have to be aware of your surrounding and what the gun will do after it is fired. Before you shoot it you should know your target and beyond. Also for saftey you should have eye and ear protection, because the gun is loud when fired and it could kick back. The right shooting position could can be the difference between an injury or you just having another day at the range. For Example, if you have a 12 guage shot gun with a slug barrel on it this could potentialy h
