Latest Classical mechanics Stories
Engineer and author Dean Walker has done what many other notable scientists, including such greats as Newton and Einstein, were unable to do: mathematically prove the cause of gravity.
With neutrons, scientists can now look for dark energy in the lab
The so-called 'I Love Q' equation that relates to neutron stars may offer surprising insights into the nature of the universe.
Whether in vehicle transmissions, hip replacements, or tiny sensors for triggering airbags: The respective components must slide against each other with minimum friction to prevent loss of energy and material wear.
The Woodward effect is one of many effects that can be derived from the framework of general relativity. The mathematics can be somewhat opaque and so it can be difficult to determine if the resulting effect is a physical, or purely mathematical construct.
Plagued by a life ruled by the stress of a birth-defect, surviving abuse, alcoholism, and unemployment, author Richard Murphy dug deep into his source of strength, and found inspiration to carry
With simple arguments, researchers show that nature is complicated!
Friction is a key phenomenon in applied physics, whose origin has been studied for centuries.
An issue in the world of science: Andrew discovered that Einstein’s law doesn't apply to everything in physics.

Physics is a natural science involving the study of matter and its motion through space-time, along with related concepts such as energy and force. On a broader scale, it also involves the general analysis of nature, conducted in order to understand how the universe behaves. Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines, perhaps the oldest through its inclusion of astronomy. Physics was part of natural philosophy until the Scientific Revolution in the 16th century, when the natural...
The Seismometer is an instrument designed to measure the motions of the ground. This includes seismic waves generated by earthquakes, nuclear explosions, and other seismic sources. Records of these activities allow seismologists to map the interior of the Earth, and locate and measure the size of the different sources. There are also seismographs, which is sometimes used in place of the word seismometer. However, a seismograph is the older instrument in which the measuring and recording...
General Relativity -- General Relativity is the common name for the theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in 1915. According to general relativity the force of gravity is a manifestation of the local geometry of spacetime. Although the modern theory is due to Einstein, its origins go back to the axioms of Euclidean geometry and the many attempts over the centuries to prove Euclid's fifth postulate, that parallel lines remain always equidistant, culminating with the...
