What is an Electric Force?

An electrifying description regarding forces We’ve discussed before what a force was and even gave examples of some on one of my previous posts. Some included gravitational force, centripetal force, and even buoyancy force due to a fluid. But there is also another force that is just as important and that deals with...

How Does Fluid Momentum Work?

Water can be your best friend or your worst enemy Even been in a shower where the showerhead water pressure is so high that it feels like you’re being struck by needles all over your body? Or imagine having a high velocity sprinkler hitting your bareback. Ouch. Who knew that water could actually...

Important Thermal Properties in Physics

Two of the most important thermal properties in physics are thermal conductivity and heat capacity. It is the reason why objects are cold on one end and eventually heat up to a certain temperature after a certain time. Notice however that some objects heat up more quickly than others. We’ll talk about how...

What is a Force?

Understanding the fundamental concept in physics… in a nutshell You probably use this word often without knowing what it really means. It is one of the most important concepts that you will encounter in physics as it is found in almost every facet of a physics class. So, whether or not you are in...

How does Momentum Relate to Force?

Two different concepts are more related than you think You may think that the two concepts are different but they are more closely related than you think. Momentum is defined as the product of an objects mass and its velocity, or ∆p=m∆v. Meaning then that objects with a higher mass and higher...
