A Guide to Motion and Energy in Classical Mechanics What is motion and what is energy? These fundamental questions are difficult to answer. The first attempt to give some explanations was made through classical mechanics. Here you will find a collection of articles with everything you need to know about the physical laws of motion and energy.
A Step by Step Approach to Thermodynamics One of the most fundamental science fields that has contributed to the evolution of engines since the early 19th century, thermodynamics has seriously affected our lives. In this guide we'll start with the basics and move on to the more complicated principles and applications.
Thermal Expansion Have you ever wondered why you can loosen the metal lid of a jar by applying hot water? The answer involves a special thermodynamic property of solids called thermal expansion.
Materials Used to Resist High Temperature in Various Industries Materials that have the ability to protect equipment and instruments from being damaged due to high temperature are called heat resistant materials. These materials can be found on the inside of ovens, in car parts, on the manufacturing floor of industrial buildings, etc.
How to Find Moment of Inertia Using Routh’s rule and the integration method, we can evaluate the moment of inertia of a body having mass and area. We can further implement methods for finding the moment of inertia for rods and flat surfaces.
Understanding Force of Friction Two surfaces in contact, no matter how much smooth they may appear to be, pose some frictional force across their surfaces. Here we try to present a comprehensive explanation regarding this phenomenon occurring every day and everywhere in our life.
What is Thermodynamic Equilibrium? Part-1 The two systems are said to be in thermodynamic equilibrium with each other when they are in mechanical, chemical and thermal equilibrium with each other. Here are various types of equilibrium and the conditions for thermodynamic equilibrium of the system.
What is the Triple Point of Water? Can water really exist in a form that is a liquid, steam, and ice all at once? And how is this feature useful in the creation of thermometers? The triple point of water explains it all.
The Thermal Expansion of Water Why do icebergs float in water? Why do pipes burst in the winter? How is it that life can exist in arctic seas? The answers lie in the thermal expansion of water.
