    Nuclear reactions and their applications

    Fission is a process in which a nucleus splits into two parts that are roughly the same size of the original nucleus. Tn fusion, two nuclei fuse, or combine, to form one nucleus. These reactions seem to be opposite to each other and yet both release large amounts of energy. Explain why this is...

    Specialy theory of relativity

    what effect would increasing the speed of the spacecraft have on the astronaut's pulse as measured by the astronaut and by the earth observer? why. I think in both measurements, an increased pulse rate will be found?..

    The nature of light

    two closely spaced slits are cut into a piece of cardboard. A green light is used to illuminate the slits. a) what would be observed on a screen placed L, meters behind the cardboard? does the observation you described in a) support the wave theory or the particle theory of light? justify your...
