The Real Physics of Roller Coaster Loops

The Real Physics of Roller Coaster Loops

If you flip through the pages of just about any physics textbook, you will probably find a picture of a roller coaster loop illustrating the concept of centripetal acceleration. Textbook problems often portray loops that are perfectly circular in order to simplify calculations, but in reality, roller coaster loops are not circular at all. The […]

The Industrial Revolution: Crash Course History of Science #21

The Industrial Revolution: Crash Course History of Science #21

You probably know some of the signs of industrialization in the nineteenth century: Trains connected cities, symbolizing progress. But they also brought about the destruction of rural lands, divisions between social classes, and rapid urbanization. Clocks, meanwhile, became technologies of standardization: They created a universal time, as opposed to a local “sun time.” But clocks […]

The first rocket scientist – Robert Goddard

Rockets existed long before Robert Goddard, but they weren’t powerful enough to get to space. We began to understand why around the turn of the 20th century. First, Russian physicist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky defined the physics of a rocket that could get to space. Then Robert Goddard, set out to actually build it. Goddard meticulously studied […]

Are real lightsabers possible? Is lightspeed real? NC State presents the Science of Star Wars

Hi. I’m Laura Bottomley. I’m a Teaching Associate Professor of Engineering at NC State University. I’m also the Director of Women in Engineering and Outreach. Sound in space is an interesting thing, because sound waves are pretty interesting things themselves. Sound waves are a way of conveying energy through matter. Sound waves can travel through […]

The Physics of Unicycling

[MUSIC PLAYING] Have you ever seen anybody unicycling, maybe wondered how does anybody balance on that thing? Maybe you were like, I got this, and tried it yourself. But if you’ve ever tried unicycling, you’d probably agree that riding on one wheel doesn’t start easy. So how does anyone balance on a unicycle? Well, the […]

Advice for Future Scientists

>>DR. KAPLAN: What I tell to any student who comes in my office thinking they want to do research, and I’ll say, “Well, why do you want to do research?” And they’ll say, “Well, I want to learn about it.” And that’s great. And then I’ll say “What do you want to do? We have […]
