For any person familiar with particle physics or physics in general, the word “quark” should sound familiar. Derived from Irish writer Jame Joyce’s “Finnegan’s Wake”, this term was first used by physicist Murray Gell Mann to name what he believed to be the smallest existing particles. But what exactly are quarks, and why are theyContinue reading “The most elementary of things-Quarks”
INTRODUCTION Wave particle duality is a phenomenon in which a beam of light is visualized as a particle and meanwhile a wave being a photon particle and in a form of wave, as well as diffraction of concentrated particles and waves. Isac Newton, along with other scientists, concluded that light is in a form ofContinue reading “WAVE-PARTICLE DUALITY”
A man by the name of Werner Heisenberg proposed the uncertainty principle in 1927. Heisenberg was a German theoretical physicist whose main contributions were to quantum mechanics, the study of the atomic and subatomic world. His principle of uncertainty took a while for people to accept. The main idea is, the more precisely you measureContinue reading “The Uncertainty Principle”
INTRODUCTION The star cycle has always been associated with giving birth to different stars, planets, asteroids, and black holes which is just 4% of what makes up the universe. The scourge of different energy and gamma rays spread across the galaxies changing the composition of matter after it decays over time. A supernova is theContinue reading “SUPERNOVA”
Daisy Shearer is a young British woman with big dreams. She spent four full years on her integrated master’s degree in physics, focusing specifically on Quantum technology. Quantum technology uses Quantum mechanics to benefit and exponentially advance our current technology. This includes quantum computing which utilizes quantum possibilities like superposition, which is when a quantumContinue reading “Interview with a physicist- Daisy Shearer”
Born in the year 1879 in Ulm, Germany, Albert Einstein was a curious firstborn. He was said to have first encountered a compass at age five, causing his lifelong fascination with invisible forces. In 1896, Albert enrolled in the mathematics and physics program at the Polytechnic college in Zurich and graduated in 1900. Newton believedContinue reading “General relativity”
Introduction Cosmic rays are a similar topic to which led the discovery of the Higgs boson which means its a subject of particle physics but rather in cosmic and galactic calculations. This topic shows how particle physics is part of the physical nature we are born into. Despite radiation impacts on the magnetic field, theContinue reading “Cosmic Rays”
19th century: It was the beginning of the 19th century. A man named Thomas Young, a British polymath, dared the unthinkable. He was going to stand up to the great Isaac Newton. His plan was simple. Newton believed that electromagnetic radiation behaved as particles only; Young’s experiment was going to attempt to prove him wrong. Continue reading “The double-slit experiment and wave-particle duality.”
INTRODUCTION Bernoulli’s principle and equation were first introduced in 1738. Even so, they were only applied to flight in December of 1903, when the Wright brothers invented and flew the first airplane successfully. As of today, this principle is used as much as projectile motion is used in flight, pipes, racing car’s front andContinue reading “Bernoulli’s Principle”
The discovery and fascinating particle physics of the Higgs field. And the effect it has on modern-day physics, especially astrophysics and theoretical physics. Research is done from the LHC (hadron collider). INTRODUCTION There has been a hunt for an explanation for the quantum field theory since Newton proposed that light traveled in the form ofContinue reading “The Higgs Field”
