Open Source Physics Computational Resources for Teaching The OSP Collection provides curriculum resources that engage students in physics, computation, and computer modeling. Computational physics and computer modeling provide students with new ways to understand, describe, explain, and predict physical phenomena. Browse the OSP simulations or learn more about our tools and curriculum pieces below. Tracker Physics Flash Animations We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content. This page provides access to those animations which may be of general interest. The animations will appear in a separate window. Science Babe goes after Dr. Mercola, Food Babe, Dr. Oz, et al Yvette d'Entremont, an analytical chemist, started Science Babe as a way to satirize the questionable claims made by Vani Hari on her Food Babe site. But Science Babe has become more serious of late and d'Entremont is taking on every popular health quack on the Web. James Fell of Ask Men profiled Science Babe to get her perspective on promotors of bro and babe "science." From the article: Mercola: “If someone sends me a link from Dr.

Quantum Entanglement and Information First published Mon Aug 13, 2001; substantive revision Thu Aug 26, 2010 Quantum entanglement is a physical resource, like energy, associated with the peculiar nonclassical correlations that are possible between separated quantum systems. Entanglement can be measured, transformed, and purified. A pair of quantum systems in an entangled state can be used as a quantum information channel to perform computational and cryptographic tasks that are impossible for classical systems. Practical Physics This website is for teachers of physics in schools and colleges. It is a collection of experiments that demonstrate a wide range of physical concepts and processes. Some of the experiments can be used as starting-points for investigations or for enhancement activities. Many have links to carefully selected further reading and all include information and guidance for technicians. Physics is a practical science.

Problem of Reciprocity Back to main course page John D. Norton Department of History and Philosophy of Science University of Pittsburgh Background reading: J. Schwartz and M. How to Combat Distrust of Science Acceptance of science has become increasingly polarized in the United States. Indeed, a recent Pew poll shows that there is a substantial and growing amount of public disagreement about basic scientific facts, including human evolution, the safety of vaccines and whether or not human-caused climate change is real and happening. What is causing this, you might ask?

Relativity Tutorial Galilean Relativity Relativity can be described using space-time diagrams.

Will Tesla's Battery for Homes Change the Energy Market? Tim Rue/Bloomberg via Getty Images Elon Musk unveils Tesla's 'Powerwall' battery for homes at a press conference in Hawthorne, California. Tesla Motors, the electric-car maker based in Palo Alto, California, has announced that it will sell versions of its battery packs directly to consumers to help to power their homes, as well as to businesses that run larger facilities, and utility companies. At a press conference in Los Angeles on 30 April, the company’s charismatic founder Elon Musk said that the firm’s lithium-ion batteries would enable economies to move to low-carbon energy sources. Solar energy sources are erratic — but by storing their energy and then releasing it when required, batteries could solve that problem, he said.

Nuclear Weapons - basic technology concepts [UNC] A few words about nuclear weapons technology.. Fission weapons Nuclear weapons exploit two principle physical, or more specifically nuclear, properties of certain substances: fission and fusion. Fission is possible in a number of heavy elements, but in weapons it is principally confined to what is termed slow neutron fission in just two particular isotopes: 235U and 239Pu. These are termed fissile, and are the source of energy in atomic weapons. my dear i am recheal a good looking girl I decided to contact you. I have an interest to have a serious and sincere relationship with you. Also, have a proposition I think you would be interested in. I should very much like to make contact with you as I consider this could be mutually beneficial. Please reply me i will be waiting for your mail thanks by rechgood Jan 6
