As you sit reading this post, the computer you're using is hard at work. For this post i want to talk specifically about fiber optics. Though the use of Fiber optics, your computer can send and receive messages much quicker, and for a lot less money. Basically, Fiber optic cables are just long glass tubes. Your computer sends pulses of light into the glass tubes that get sent out as messages. These pulses of light hit the inside of the glass at their Critical Angle thus reflecting the pu

## Blog 4 (Physics Everywhere)

Today I was thinking about how many examples of physics I can think of that are in our everyday life. I came up with 10 examples that I thought were most prevalent. 1. when we walk, we push the ground backwards, and the ground pushes us forward in accordance with newton's 3rd law... infact we walk only due to presence of frictional force, we do work against friction to walk 2. An airplane flies due to application of bernoulli's theorem, based on conservation of energy 3. we tend to move forwa

when you put a shovel on an old picnic table in your backyard and a leg of the table snaps, it's time for a new table. Problem is, the table can't be thrown away or used for firewood (some parts are just too rotted for anything put the garbage) as it is. It had to be taken apart.

The trick was to make sure the sideways

Powersliding is putting the vehicle in turn with the rear end hung

I like to listen to music and play video games. I think my favorite part about listening to music is listening to music I've never heard before and seeing if I like it or not. I'm very good at solving problems if I take the time to do it. I like to use different methods to solve them and answer the question. I do this a lot during life too because life is full of problems. However, I think I could improve on my time management and be less of a procrastinator. Lastly, I want to become a surgeon b
