Meter Bridge Experiment using Wheatstone Bridge Principle

What is Wheat Stone Bridge? A Wheatstone bridge is an electrical circuit used to measure an unknown electrical resistance by balancing two legs of a bridge circuit, one leg of which includes the unknown component. it was invented by Samuel Hunter Christie in 1833 and improved and popularized by Sir Charles Wheatstone in 1843.Although today […]

Newton’s Third Law of motion (action-reaction and examples)

This article is about in-depth explanation of newton’s third law of motion. Here in this article I presume that you have a introduction of Newtons first law of motion and Newton’s second law of motion. Now Newtons first law and second law of motion deals with the effect of forces when they acts on a body. First law is about the change in the velocity of the body on the application of unbalanced forces and second law is gives the exact amount of the force needed to produce a given acceleration.

Circular Motion Physics : Detailed explanation

Circular motion is a very important concept in physics. Here in this page I would like to go through the concept of circular motion. You encounter circular motion in your day to day life. Many rides in amusement parks undergoes circular motion. Curves on highway are part of a circle and cars making a tun undergoes circular motion. Merry-go-Rounds in playgrounds offer further examples of uniform circular motion. Now let us learn more about circular motion.

How to solve resistor in series problems

Here in this article we will go through a easy problem showing the basics how to solve the problems where resistors are connected in series and you have to find the equivalent resistance of the circuit. we will do this through an example . For this consider studying the question given below and how I solve this question following several steps. Here our goal will be to analyze few resistors connected in series combination. Further If you want to read the notes related to this topic please follow this link

Nuclear Fission Basics

Nuclear fission is said to have occurred when nucleus of an atom splits into several small fragments. In nuclear physics nuclear fission either occurs as a nuclear reaction or as a radioactive decay process in which nucleus of an atom splits into smaller and lighter nuclei. The fission process often produces free neutrons and photons (in the form of gamma rays), and releases a very large amount of energy even by the energetic standards of radioactive decay.

Top Known Scientist in Heat and Thermodynamics Field

James Prescott Joule (1818 – 1889)
•He was an English physicist and brewer, born in Salford, Lancashire.
•He received his early education at home
•He studied for sometime under John Dalton
•Joule studied the nature of heat, and discovered its relationship to mechanical work .
•His first major research was concerned with determining the quantity of heat produced by an electric current and, in 1840, Joule discovered a simple law connecting the current and resistance with the heat generated.

Energy facts

1)The word energy comes from the Greek word energeia.
2)Most types of energy are either a form of kinetic energy or potential energy.
3)Common examples include heat energy, elastic potential energy, chemical energy, sound energy, nuclear energy, geothermal energy , gravitational potential energy and electric Potential energy
4) Kinetic energy refers to the energy an object has because of its movement. A Truck in motion has kinetic energy, as does a basketball when you pass or shoot it.
