Classical mechanics
In physics, classical mechanics and quantum mechanics are the two major sub-fields of mechanics. Classical mechanics is concerned with the set of physical laws describing the motion of bodies under th...

Albert Einstein Facts: 51 Things You Didn't Know About Einstein
Amazing Albert Einstein facts and things you didn't know. Here are some amazing and little-known facts about life of one of the greatest minds of our time.
Earth's Core Is Two-And-A-Half Years Younger Than Its Crust
We have long known that gravity makes the Earth's centre age more slowly than its surface – but the effect is much more pronounced than once thought
'Mistakes' (New Zealand road safety advert)
The powerful advert entitled 'Mistakes' attempts to make drivers think twice about speeding. Two drivers are seen on a path to collision when time slows down and stops, allowing them to get out of th...
Ancient Babylonians Geometrically Traced The Path of Jupiter
For millenia upon millenia, humans knew that certain objects in the sky moved while other stars stood still. These are the objects we now know as planets. But precise calculations on their movements r...
Ballistic Pendulums Are As Awesome As They Sound
How does a ballistic pendulum give information about a bullet or ball? Here is a derivation of the classic introductory physics problem. ALTHOUGH IT’S NOT always so simple to set up, a ballistic pendu...
Magnetic Wormhole Created In Lab
Ripped from the pages of a sci-fi novel, physicists have crafted a wormhole that tunnels a magnetic field through space. "This device can transmit the magnetic field from one point in space to another...
Here's Why Years Seem To Go By Faster As You Get Older
Have you ever wondered, why does time fly? We’ve all noticed how summer vacations in our childhoods seemed to last an eternity — in fact, the days crawled by so slowly that most kids were almost excit...
Is The Future Already Written?
First developed by Albert Einstein early in the 20th century, the orthodox view holds that the passage of time is an illusion. There is no difference between the past and the future — both are set in ...
Vanishing Friction
A new technique tunes friction between two surfaces, to the point where friction can vanish. MIT researchers developed a frictional interface at the atomic level. The blue corrugated surface represent...

History of classical mechanics
This article deals with the history of classical mechanics.
The ancient Greek philosophers, Aristotle in particular, were among the first to propose that abstract principles govern nature. Aristot...

Kinematics
Kinematics is the branch of classical mechanics which describes the motion of points, bodies (objects) and systems of bodies (groups of objects) without consideration of the causes of motion. The ter...

Velocity
Velocity is the rate of change of the displacement, the difference between the final and initial position of an object. Velocity is equivalent to a specification of its speed and direction of motion, ...
Velocity - Wikipedia
Speed
In everyday use and in kinematics, the speed of an object is the magnitude of its velocity (the rate of change of its position); it is thus a scalar quantity. The average speed of an object in an inte...

Acceleration
Acceleration, in physics, is the rate of change of velocity of an object. An object's acceleration is the net result of any and all forces acting on the object, as described by Newton's Second Law. Th...

Inertial frame of reference
In physics, an inertial frame of reference (also inertial reference frame or inertial frame or Galilean reference frame or inertial space) is a frame of reference that describes time and space homogen...

Galilean transformation
In physics, a Galilean transformation is used to transform between the coordinates of two reference frames which differ only by constant relative motion within the constructs of Newtonian physics. Thi...

Force
In physics, a force is any interaction which tends to change the motion of an object. In other words, a force can cause an object with mass to change its velocity (which includes to begin moving from ...

Newton's laws of motion
Newton's laws of motion are three physical laws that together laid the foundation for classical mechanics. They describe the relationship between a body and the forces acting upon it, and its motion i...

Work (physics)
In physics, a force is said to do work if, when acting on a body, there is a displacement of the point of application in the direction of the force. For example, when a ball is held above the ground ...

Kinetic energy
In physics, the kinetic energy of an object is the energy that it possesses due to its motion.It is defined as the work needed to accelerate a body of a given mass from rest to its stated velocity. Ha...

Potential energy
In physics, potential energy is the energy that an object has due to its position in a force field or that a system has due to the configuration of its parts. Common types include the gravitational po...
