Something that I consider very silly, yet I try to solve relates to the relativity of simultaneity. According to SR , two evevnts taking place in different positions along the line of relative motion of two inertial observers are not simultaneous in both frames.
Now, I wanted to see how this...
I want to learn how to create virtual labs (html5, java and on) for physics education purposes. I could work on my own, but I am more interested in getting a solid background from experts. Is there any online course in which I could enroll?
I am a Physicist with MSc in Experimental Particle Physics and for the last 3 years I work in the field of Science Education as a teacher trainer, and developer of inquiry based, ICT enhanced educational content in the field of Physics for K12 students in the RnD department of a school in...
I am involved in a project aiming to address Physics Misconceptions regarding Sound through the creation of virtual musical instruments.
One of the major student misconceptions I have found in bibliography is the fact that students perceive sound pitch and loudness as being the...
I am opening this thread so as to discuss if possible what you believe is the science case of building a neutrino telescope.
Being a fanatic in the field , I would like to hear opinions from whoever wants to say about whether it is important to build such a detector and why.
The question refers to the supposed tachyons. Many experiments have been conducted based on cosmic ray studies with the following assumption:
" If particles with u>c exist then they should emit Cherenkov radiation in vacuum. Thus... Let's detect it!"
How can this argument stand...
I have a question concerning the relation of the index of refraction of a material with E/M wave frequency.
If we take the classical Feynmann approach, we can envision the material as a series of atoms, with electrons bound with springs to the nuclei.
Let the natural frequencies of...
