Freshmen Physics I Class - Classical Mechanics

Freshmen Physics I Class - Classical Mechanics
Description 8.01 is a first-semester freshman physics class in Newtonian Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, and Kinetic Gas Theory. In addition to the basic concepts of Newtonian Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, and Kinetic Gas Theory, a variety of interesting topics are covered in this course: Binary Stars, Neutron Stars, Black Holes, Resonance Phenomena, Musical Instruments, Stellar Collapse, Supernovae, Astronomical observations from very high flying balloons (lecture 35), and you will be allowed a peek into the intriguing Quantum World. Customer Reviews Physics as elucidated by Prof Walter Lewin by billyjonackley Physics taught by that master of clear thinking Prof Lewin is rendered magically fascinating. ...More Outstanding! by panicstream22 I'm an engineering student at South Alabama and at the beginning of this semester I had to travel out of town for a week. Refreshing Physics by Colorado999 An excellent expample of what future of education could be.

Apply to DEVELOP International Applicants International applicants interested in working with the DEVELOP Program must be currently registered at an accredited U.S. school. International applicants are not eligible to apply to NASA Center Locations, however, they are eligible to apply to Regional Locations and Leveraged Academic Locations. String Theorists Squeeze Nine Dimensions Into Three A simulation of the early universe using string theory may explain why space has three observable spatial dimensions instead of nine. The leading mathematical explanation of physics goes beyond modern particle theory by positing tiny bits of vibrating string as the fundamental basis of matter and forces. String theory also requires that the universe have six or more spatial dimensions in addition to the ones observed in everyday life.

Game From Scratch C++ Edition! Want to create a game using C++ and SFML? This is the perfect place to start! This tutorial series will follow the creation of a simple game in C++ from the very beginning till the end, a micro-version of the overall purpose of this site. C++ is an evolving language standard and a great many tutorials out there are horrifically outdated or just plain bad. Similarly, most tutorials in books or on sites are by their very nature required to be very short and concise. How to be Productive and Still Get 8 Hours Sleep Yes, you read that right. Productive people sleep eight hours a day. They also watch tv, go to wine tastings and perform sun salutations in the morning. Productive people don’t have more hours in the day. Nor do they live perfect lives.

Quantum decision affects results of measurements taken earlier in time Quantum entanglement is a state where two particles have correlated properties: when you make a measurement on one, it constrains the outcome of the measurement on the second, even if the two particles are widely separated. It's also possible to entangle more than two particles, and even to spread out the entanglements over time, so that a system that was only partly entangled at the start is made fully entangled later on. This sequential process goes under the clunky name of "delayed-choice entanglement swapping." And, as described in a Nature Physics article by Xiao-song Ma et al., it has a rather counterintuitive consequence. You can take a measurement before the final entanglement takes place, but the measurement's results depend on whether or not you subsequently perform the entanglement. Delayed-choice entanglement swapping consists of the following steps.

Simple Electric Generator All metals contain a movable substance called "electric charge". Even uncharged wires are full of charge! After all, the atoms of the metal are made half of positive protons and half of negative electrons. Metals are special because their electrons don't stay connected to the metal atoms, instead they fly around inside the metal and form a type of electric "liquid" inside the wires.

Math, Physics, and Engineering Applets Oscillations and Waves Acoustics Signal Processing Electricity and Magnetism: Statics Electrodynamics Quantum Mechanics 30 game scripts you can write in PHP, Part 1: Creating 10 fundamental scripts Getting started As both a game master/storyteller and a developer, I frequently find myself writing little utilities and scripts to help me when running, planning, and playing games. Sometimes I need a quick idea. Other times, I just need a whole pile of names for Non-Player Characters (NPCs). Occasionally, I need to geek out on numbers, work out some odds, or integrate some word puzzles into a game.
