Introduction The study of physics has captured the human mind for centuries. Encompassing some of the greatest minds of history, the evolution of physics has followed the human race since the beginnings of civilization. Filled with both complementing and contrasting thought experiments, theories, and revelations, the journey to modern-day physics is an exciting and complicated […]

Time travel: fact or fiction. A study on the scientific, social and historical impacts of time travel.

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Astrophysics, Physics

By Waania Zia Abstract This is an article detailing the different models and theories of time travel, focusing on Einstein’s theory of relativity and Minkowski space-time, which is the combination of the 3 dimensional space with a 4th dimension of time. It delves into the development of time travel within science and fiction as well […]

An examination of feasible rocket propulsion systems for a future single stage rocket

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Astrophysics, Physics, Space

Abstract This paper explores different types of rocket propulsion systems and assesses their benefits and drawbacks. The paper also compares different types of rockets, such as Single Stage rockets and Two Stage rockets, before proposing a propulsion system for a future Single Stage to Orbit (SSTO) rocket. This system shall meet the requirements of both […]

Photoelectric Effect: A Simple Application Konstantinos Angelopoulos Abstract Research was conducted on the phenomenon of the emission of electrons from the surface of certain metals when illuminated by light. The purpose of this work was to observe the change in the value of the electric current produced, depending on the distance between the lamp and […]

The Effectiveness of “Pre-computed Vector Space and Interpolation” Method on the Computing Time for an n-body Simulation

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Astronomy, Astrophysics, Physics

Abstract In the field of physics and astronomy, -body simulations are widely used tools to simulate particles under the influence of gravitational forces, and they are generally made using an algorithm that is almost a brute-force approach, as it computes all pairwise gravitational forces by solving for computational differential equation solutions using algorithms like the […]

CAN THE DE BROGLIE RELATION BE MODIFIED FOR ACCOMMODATING RELATIVISTIC MODIFICATIONS IN THE SCHRÖDINGER EQUATION?

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Physics

  by Arpan Dey Abstract The main objective of the present paper is to investigate the de Broglie relation [1] and determine its consequences on the time-independent Schrödinger equation [2], and whether the results are valid in terms of accommodating relativistic corrections in the Schrödinger equation. The de Broglie relation has been modified by considering […]
