A quiz is a form of game or mind sport in which players attempt to answer questions correctly about a certain or variety of subjects. Quizzes can be used as a brief assessment in education and similar fields to measure growth in knowledge, abilities, or skills. They can also be televised for entertainment purposes, often in a game show format.
Here are faces of 20 classical scientists whose names are associated with physical units. Early 1600s to early 1900s.
At first glance through, how many do you know for certain? Some physicsforum members will most likely know them all! (I only got 4.)
Now, if you did not know them all at...
Hi, I want to write some interactive Physics lessons, where students can engage with Phet Simulations and then answer some quizzes to test their thinking along the way.
Any of you did that, or similar?
Please, let me know if anything is unclear.
I sincerely hope you can have a great time...
Question: Where is an angle of 10.5π radians in standard position located?
A. On the positive vertical axis
B. On the negative vertical axis
C. In the second quadrant
D. In the fourth quadrant
I thought I had to divide 10.50 by 3.14, which I thought yielded 3.34π. Then I subtracted 3.34π...
I utilized an Ultrashort Pulse Calculator on a website (https://www.rp-photonics.com/ultrashort_pulses.html) and got the bandwidth of 9.39nm with the specifications listed above.
Then divided the wavelength by the bandwidth, and it came out 85(optical cycles).
However, I am not sure if it is...

Airwolf (from the T.V show Airwolf) is a Mach 1+ helicopter capable of reaching speeds up to Mach 2. For it's time, it's weapons system was pretty farfetched (had fourteen weapons systems overall, including chaffe and flares) at it's time.
I'm well aware of the limits of regular helicopters'...
Hey, i have question, i am in a year to prepare us for us college life, and in our physics class the teacher say we should read a chapter then take a quiz in it then he gove us a lecture in it. So is it the system in the us?

I recently quizzed physicists in my workplace with the following question: The speed c in the second postulate refers to:
a) the one-way speed of light
b) the round-trip speed of light
c) Both
d) Neither
I was surprised at the variety of answers. What do you say?
