A Laboratory Report on the Experiment Investigating the Factors that Affect the Terminal Velocity of a Falling Body
SC1: Investigating Terminal Velocity Introduction When an object falls through a fluid it accelerates until it reaches its terminal velocity. At this speed the forces acting on it are balanced. My task is to investigate the factors that affect the terminal velocity of a falling object. Key Factors · Mass of ball bearin...

Prevention and Curing of Terminal Illnesses in the USA
It is upsetting and depressing living life in the shadow of death. One reason is that we are all aware of the fact that we are going to die, and most of us are afraid of suffering through a terminal illness. The normal process of dying is frequently hidden from us, with family members dying in hospitals and nursing homes. T...

An Introduction to the Analysis of a Wave's Phase Velocity
A wave's phase velocity refers to the rate at which the given phase of that particular wave tends to propagate in space. This refers to the speed at which the particular phase of any single frequency component of the associated wave travels.  In this component, any existing phase of the wave like the crest will look just li...

Joe Kittinger the First Man to Reach Terminal Velocity
Terminal Velocity Terminal velocity is reached when the force of air resistance pushing up against the falling object ( i.e. skydiver), is equal to the force of gravity pushing the object downward. As the object falls downwards, there exists a drag force that acts to impede the motion. This drag force not only acts in t...

How a Guitar Works
The stretched strings of an instrument can be vibrated in various ways. The most basic way is the “fundamental vibrational mode.” In this case the wavelength is twice that of the string length (λ=2L). The wave relationship can be applied to this to yield the frequency (f): f=v/2L , where v is the wave velocity of the wave...

A Comparison of Big Bang and Steady State Theories of Creation
It is always a mystery about how the universe began, whether if and when it will end. Astronomers construct hypotheses called cosmological models that try to find the answer. There are two types of models: Big Bang and Steady State. However, through many observational evidences, the Big Bang theory can best explain the...

Understanding the Laws of Collision
When two objects collide, their motions are changed as a result of the
collision, as is shown when playing pool.
There are several laws governing collisions, the principal one being the
law of conservation of linear momentum, which says the total momentum of an
isolated system is the table and the balls, and the law then im...

The Crash - A Short Story
The wind blew the strands of my long brown hair like streamers behind me as I let the Harley Davidsons V-Twin motor unwind. It plastered my beard to my face and whipped the skin of my cheeks. My black T-shirt flapped in the summer breeze behind me and clung to my front like wet cloth. The roar of the wind passing between my...
