  1. The first law of Thermodynamics holds that in any situation the total amount of energy with in is equal to the total amount of energy out. This also means that you can't create energy or destroy it. So well what happened to all the energy we have put in our bodies? The long story short, most of the energy is stored in your body, and on average a human carries around 7*10^18 joules of energy on average. If all that energy were to release all at once, it would have the same effect as setting OFF 30 HYDROGEN BONDS AT THE SAME TIME!!!!!
  2. Gravitional time dilation is actually a real phenomonon that has observational evidence here on earth. This only occurs because time is relative which means that time runs at different rates and different reference frames. This is caused because areas with a strong gravitational environment time will run slower and vise versa. Say you are near a black hole, like the one from "intersteller" your refrence frame, or otherwise known as your perception of time, will change if say you were looking at a blackhole from earth. So lets say if you were near the black hole in space it took 30 seconds,
  3. Wormholes like the one the crew used in "Intersteller" is one of the few physics phenomonons that doesn't have any observational evidence to support it. It is strictly theoretical but an incredibl plot device for a science fiction action thriller. Wormholes are essential shortcuts through space. An object with mass will create a divot in space or in otherwise stretches, folds, or distorts space. Wormholes are folds of the fabric in space (otherwise known as time) connecting to very long distances in space. Therefore create a gap that space explores can go through and be able to travel a ext
  4. If you have seen the intense, action packed thriller "Intersteller" you would then would some-what know what im talking about when i mention artificial gravity. We were born on earth and our bodies have adapted to the gravitational pressure that our bodies under go on a daily basis. Well when people go into space, where there gravitational pressure is not as great, over a long period of time our muscles start to degrade. This is an issue that happend in the movie "Intersteller". To work against this anti gravity enovironment in space, we had to create different designs that simulate Artific

    Great post! loved how you related it to a very classic video game everyone can relate too, I challenge you to a melee after school though... Yoshi vs. fox! Good luck hope you accept the challenge... If you have the stones
  6. that stories cool, you're cool, physics is cool. good blog post
  7. Great way of applying physics to field hockey, thanks for the explanation and good blog post!
  8. I think you should do more work Kyra, great entry though loved it!
  9. I might be a one of those people complaining, well done, good entry Kyra.
  10. it is true that matter and energy are just two sides of the same coin. In fact, you've known this your whole life, if you've ever heard of the formula E=mc^2. The E equals Energy and the m equals Mass. The amount of energy contained in a particular amount of mass is determined by the conversion factor c squared, where c represents... the speed of light. The explanation for this phenomenon is really quite fascinating, and it has to do with the fact that the mass of an object increases as it approaches the speed of light (even as time is slowing down). It is, however quite complicated, so for

  12. Physicists have a pretty good ways of measuring the total mass present in the universe. They also have some pretty accurate ways of measuring the total mass we can observe, but here's the catch-the two numbers don't match up. In fact, the amount of total mass in the universe is vastly greater than the total mass we can actually account for. Physicists were forced to come up with an explanation for this, and the leading theory right now involves dark matter, a mysterious substance that emits no light and accounts for approximately 95% of the mass in the universe. While it hasn't been formall
  13. I'm here to talk about the theory of General Relativity, this involves an ideas called light deflection, which is exactly what it sounds like- the path of a beam of light is not entirely straight. As strange as this may seem to you, it's been proven repeatedly. What this means is that, even though light doesn't have any mass, its path is affected by things that do-such as the sun. So if a beam of light from, lets say a really far off star in the sky passes aclose enough to the sun it will actually bend slightly around it, The effect on a star gazer such as us is that we see the star in a di
  14. We all can agree on that there is nothing faster than the speed of light correct? Well, yes and no. While it is technically it is true, but at least in theory it turns out that there's a loophole to be found in the mind-blowing branch of physics known as quantum mechanics. Quantum mechanics, in essence, is the study of physics at a microscopic scale, such as the behavior of subatomic particles. These types of particles are the impossibly small, but very important, as they form the building blocks for everything in the universe. I'll leave the technical details aside for now (it gets very co
  15. The study of physics is the study of the universe-and more specifically, just how the universe works. It is without a doubt the most interesting branch of science, because the universe, as it turns out, is a whole lot more complicated than it looks on the surface (and it looks pretty complicated already). The world works in some weird ways, and through you made need a PhD to understand why, you only need a sense of awe to appreciate how. According to Einsteins's Theory of Special Relativity, the speed of light can never change-it's always stuck at approximately 300,000,000 meters/second, no m
