The Use of the Ideas of the Great Scientists in the Creation of Albert Eintstein's Theory of Special Relativity
3543300287083500Energy is the basic idea that measurable properties describe an object’s state. This definition has been molded and shaped from the discovery of energy, to the idea that there were different types of energy. It can also be divided by Albert Einstein’s theory of special relativity, E = mc2. This equation sh...

The Cloning Process of Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer
Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT) is a cloning process that involves removing the nucleus of an egg cell and inserting the nucleus from a somatic cell. The nucleus is then “reprogrammed” by the egg cell and contains the DNA of the donor. After “fusing” the somatic cell’s nucleus and egg ce...

The Three Laws of General Physics by Isaac Newton
There are three laws that govern the general physics in the world that is all around us. These laws all came from Isaac Newton. The first law states that any object that is in motion will stay in motion unless there is an opposing force acting on it. Also it states that objects at rest will stay at rest unless there is a fo...

The Important Advances in the Discovery and Development of the Atomic Theory
The atomic theory has advanced since the discovery of radioactivity in 1898. And so much of modern technology is based on these advancements. They couldn’t have happened without the discovery of electrons (e-), protons (p ), and neutrons (n0) through experiments done by four key scientists. Atomic theory starts to develop...

A Lab Experiment to Determine Coefficient of Discharge as a Function of Reynolds Number
We are conducting an experiment that goes by the name of Herschel Venturi.
The purpose of this lab is to determine coefficient of discharge as a
function of Reynolds Number and overall head loss as a function of maximum
head differential, and to compare each with accepted empirical results. We
conducted this l...

The Origin of Schrodinger's Cat
Schrodinger’s Cat So what do we really know about Schrodinger’s Cat? Most recently, this cat has been featured in memes on the Internet, depicting the cat as a zombie. I originally understood the term to reference an experiment where a cat was in a box and you couldn’t tell if it was alive or dead simply because you coul...

An Analysis of the Conservation of Mass and Its Importance in Balancing Equations
Conservation of Mass and the Importance of Balancing Equations Conservation of mass is perhaps one of the most essential concepts in the study of Chemistry. In the early development of science, small changes in mass were not measurable. In late 1774, French scientist Antoine Lavoisier invented the analytical balance to c...

A Lab Experiment to Find the Molar Mass of an Unknown Substance Through the Calculation of Its Freezing Point Depression
Introduction The purpose of this lab was to determine the molar mass of an unknown substance labeled as “3” by calculating its freezing point depression when compared to the freezing point of the solvent, water. Freezing point depression is a colligative property, meaning that the nature and makeup of the solute is not rel...

The Probability of Particle Detection in Quantum Physics
Young’s double-slit experiment provides evidence that light is a wave. In the experiment, the light diffracts from each slit and the bright and dark interference pattern is seen on the observation screen. When the crest and the trough of one wave match with the crest and the trough of another wave, respectively, there is br...

A Report on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the Large Hadron Collider Beauty (LHCb) Experiment
For this paper I decided to do more research on my initial project which was ‘escaping the universe’. There is not much research being done on this, however when I was doing my project I mentioned a bit about the LHC (Large Hadron Collider). As I said in my project, the LHC is said to be able to give us the first ‘experimen...

A Lab Experiment on Conducting a Direct Shear Test to Determine the Angle of Internal Friction of Dry Sand
Introduction:The direct shear test is carried out on either undisturbed samples or remolded samples. To facilitate the remolding purpose, a soil sample may be compacted at optimum moisture content in a compaction mold. Then specimen for the direct shear test could be obtained using the correct cutter provided. Alternatively...

The Different Ways Sound Travels Depending on Pitch, Range, and Location
Most of our lives are dependent on sound... We use sound to be aware of our surroundings, to communicate, sound tells us when something is dangerous or bad, like in a scary movie and you hear creaky sounds and spooky music. Sound makes us happy or sad. I started band when I was about 11 years old and have played bass clarin...

A Study on Physical Constraints of Objects and Online Objects
Object: Seiko analog wristwatch Constraints are used to reduce the possible actions one can perform on an object. A physical constraint on my watch is its clasp, the fold-over clasp commonly found on metal watches. The clasp is a physical constraint because it limits my options for how to secure the watch. After putting...

A Report on Density and Buoyant Force
For our group project, we are trying to see if an object will float or sink
in certain liquids. If the density of an object is greater, then the
buoyant force should increase. If the density of an object it lesser, then
the buoyant force should decrease. Our three major terms for our project is
density, mass, and buoyant fo...

The Smallest Building Blocks of Matter Known to Man
Atoms are an important part of studying life. Atoms are everywhere and make up all the matter that scientists have studied. For the longest time it was believed that protons, neutrons, and electrons were the smallest particles but recent studies show that there are many smaller particles, seventeen smaller particles so far...

The Characteristics, Methods of Finding, and Uses of the Center of Mass
Center of Mass The center of mass is the unique point where all of the mass of an object is concentrated. In other words the balance point of an object is known as the center of mass. Not all objects balance the same way. If the object is irregular the center of mass will be closer to the heavier end. Take a broom for...

A Lab Experiment of Taking Measurement Under High and Low Power
I learned how to measure objects under both high and low power in this lab. I learned how to calculate the magnification of the low and high power, and I also learned how to calculate the area of the field of view. We are able to take measurements under high and low power. I learned that the low power has a smaller field...

A Study on the Concept of Moment of Inertia on the Idea of Maxwell's Wheel
Introduction The idea of Maxwell’s wheel is basically a giant, fancy yoyo: we observed a wheel unwinding from a string under the influence of gravity. To minimize the force of friction, however, this yoyo was attached to two strings instead of just one. The wheel (disk with an axle in the center) was wound up a certain num...
