What is Physics problems: Definition and 190 Discussions
The major unsolved problems in physics are either problematic with regards to theoretically considered scientific data, meaning that existing analysis and theory seem incapable of explaining certain observed phenomenon or experimental results, or problematic with regards to experimental design, meaning that there is a difficulty in creating an experiment to test a proposed theory or investigate a phenomenon in greater detail.
There are still some questions beyond the Standard Model of physics, such as the strong CP problem, neutrino mass, matter–antimatter asymmetry, and the nature of dark matter and dark energy. Another problem lies within the mathematical framework of the Standard Model itself—the Standard Model is inconsistent with that of general relativity, to the point that one or both theories break down under certain conditions (for example within known spacetime singularities like the Big Bang and the centres of black holes beyond the event horizon).
I was curious if there were any unsolved physics problems and if so which is the most important or intriguing. I have been meaning to contribute to the scientific field in some capacity and I think solving an unresolved issue in physics could do just that. Thanks!
The question is on the title. I was just thinking if exist some magazine on physics and maths whose only focus is to publish interesting problems and solutions?
Hello All!
I recently finished my undergrad but to be honest I actually feel like not learning anything. I could ace the tests because I knew the "pattern" of questions that would come but now if I open an EM textbook by griffiths, I am pretty sure I understand the topic but struggle a lot in...
My attempt:
At first, only a small part of the chain has fallen through. Let that part have mass m, speed v, and length x. Suppose the chain has a mass per unit length of u.
To accelerate a small length of chain on the table to speed v, Force needed = v dm/dt = v (dm/dx) * (dx/dt) = uv^2...
I do not know how to do this because in order to find the force of gravity it seemed to me i need to know the mass of the planet and vice versa, and for the 1st exercice i do not know whether the planet fills the astronaut's field of view. If it does in understand that i need to use trigonometry...
So I'm currently doing research on studying physics by visually impaired children. I know, that there are many techniques to teach such a kid physics, but what I don't like about these techniques is that they are mostly tactile-based and implement graphs and illustrations in Braille and...
I am trying to gain some perspective into the topic of «number of valid digits» when doing physics problems.
I have been doing physicsproblems for å long time, but i have never really understood why the rules regarding number of digits to include in the final answer - is the way that it is.

I am taking an introductory physics course at college right now and honestly, I'd rather take an uppercut to the jaw then take another physics class. I'm great at Mathematics(that's my major) but I just can't seem to get any physics problems. I have so much trouble setting them up and solving...
Hi! As the title suggests, I am searching for some good problem books with really challenging problems for classical physics, more precisely on the topics of electricity and elecromagnetism, geometrical optics and wave optics, thermodynamics and analytical mechanics. When I say challenging I...

You have decided to use a CCD camera to check if a 16th magnitude quasar is variable. You can presume that all of the light of your quasar falls on one pixel. You know that a star with a magnitude of 0 would deliver 1 × 10^9 photons/second to one pixel...
Hello everyone! My finals in physics are in the corner (actually in 6 days) and I have studied a lot. Tho, my teacher yesterday told me that in the exams, unfortunately, I won't be able to make the hard thought or solve the hard problem. And that almost 1 week before just took me apart. And ok I...
When solving a math or physics problem, the process usually starts with recognizing what type of problem it is and which equations need to be used.
This is simple for more straight forward problems. If they give you mass and acceleration and ask you to find the force, you have all parts of the...
Generally, what are the steps in solving a physics problem? Some problems are straight forward, and you can just plug some numbers into an equation to get an answer, but with other problems, I sometimes don’t even know where to start. I generally just solve the problem by fiddling around with...
Hey guys, I'm looking for some nice new physics challenges similar to physics.harvard.edu Problem of the Week or the 2 star and above problems in Morin's Intro to Classical Mechanics (also Feynman problems). Where else can I find such problems? Or does anyone know of a few that they could share?
I am trying to solve some physics problems but sometimes I miss some stuff.Like in the logical part sometimes I forget to include some force or things like that.I am a freshman student.

Out of the 6 remaining Millennium Prize Problems, two concern physics, the Navier-Stokes smoothness problem and the Yang-Mills mass gap problem.
What I'm curious about is, if both problems were to be solved right now, what would be the immediate experimental and/or technological impacts of the...

The "Classic" Physics Problems.

Seems like it might be easier to just cut out the middlemen who hold the dollars and do a bunch of math somewhere until there are a few less "unsolved problems in mathematics" on wikipedia. What's stopping scientists from doing this? Much more efficient in terms of physicist-life-hours.
Before I go about trying to futilly solve the question, is this thing beyond a CIE A-Lv physics student's reach or not? Any comments on the difficulty of the question, and perhaps the reading material which you would recommend before I attempt the question?
Thank you.
