    I Does the 1 Second after the Big Bang = 1 second now?

    When I read that conditions were such and such 1 to .05 seconds after the big bang, is that duration somehow longer than 1/2 second is now (maybe because of the difference in density or like the twin paradox?)?

    I Question: pressure inside an object submerged in water

    I'm doing a question relating to the pressure inside on object submerged in water. Here is the question: A tube, height 1.2m, is submerged vertically in the ocean where the waters density is 10^3 kg/m^3. A diver initially holds the tube vertically directly on top of the water. He then dives to...

    How to find Lagrangian density from a vertex factor

    Homework Statement This isn't a homework problem, per se, in that it's not part of a specific class. That being said, the question I would like help with is finding a Lagrangian density from the vertex factor, $$-ig_a\gamma^{\mu}\gamma^5.$$ This vertex would be identical to the QED vertex...

    Change in density due to thermal expansion

    Homework Statement I want to find the mathematical proof to show that the density of an object changes with thermal expansion. My professor showed this in class and it was horribly wrong because he let a few things out. The book I'm reading showed it in 4 steps and left out a lot of the crucial...

    Why did my glass bottle explode?

    Five days ago, I filled a glass 2L bottle about halfway with litchis, then filled the bottle with water till the end and sealed it with its cap. I was curious to see how it decomposes in there. This morning, about 1/7th of the water was lying in a puddle around the bottle. I could see gas...

    Stator inlet angle in turbomachine?

    Hello, I am wondering about the following action in a stator: If the inlet angle in a stator is B, and the outlet angle is -B, what exactly is happening? Axial vlocity should be constant, and so should the relative velocities except being mirrored and i am asuming infinitely thin blades.. Can...

    Electric arc in 0 gravity? Curved or straight?

    I observe that electric arc forms a curve. I think that this is because electric arc is extremely hot and hot air goes up because it has less density. So if electric arc occur at 0 gravity would it be straight? from wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_arc Thank you.

    Insulator density and thermal conductivity

    How does insulator's density affect its thermal conductivity? For example, considering such insulators as rock wool, It seems that the thermal conductivity should increase with an increase in density (due to elimination of 'air pockets'). However, experimental results, in many cases, look more...

    How is light affected by the gravity of a black hole?

    Hello! I am new to this forum, but I'll give it a shot. It is my understanding that photons have no mass- but that light is still pulled by the gravity of a black hole. How can something without a mass, and therefore, gravity, be pulled by the gravity of another object? Any insight would be...

    How to densify silicone oil?

    Hi everyone, I am looking for a way to densify silicone oil. Foolishly, I tried to dissolve Calcium Chloride but as well all know, salt will not dissolve in oil. If anyone has any knowledge as to how I can increase the density of silicone oil I would greatly appreciate your input.
