A suspension system whereby air is used as the working fluid and also the shock absorber, is known as an air suspension system. Such systems are talked about during our Physics tuition class on damping concepts as well as hydraulic systems. The back and front suspension systems, or simply the suspension units on both sides …

Air suspension offers a comfortable and smooth ride in the car. Air springs are categorized into two types: Piston type and Bellow type.

Pressure cooking saves a great deal of energy compared with conventional cooking methods. Pressure cookers have their place in almost every household. As the name implies this form of cooking relies on pressure. But how is this pressure generated? Secondly how does pressure cooking save energy? In order to answer these questions one should have a lucid idea …

Do you know why Pressure Cooker use Whistle, how it works? Let's learn the anatomy of Pressure Cooker Whistle and check the pros of it.

A.F. Chalmers, one of the best philosophers of science authored a book titled ‘What is this thing called as Science?’. Unlike the rhetoric we regularly encounter, this question has a well defined answer. Knowledge of the philosophy of science is essential to attain a better understanding of the scientific theories, discoveries and their limitations. This knowledge is pivotal …

As students of Physics we should know how science works and let's answer the question ' What is this thing called as physics?

The last article dealt with inertia and Newton’s first law of motion. Inertia is the tendency of the body to remain in the current motion state. We have, so far, studied the behaviour of objects in linear motion. It requires force to change the motion state of a body. Think of a situation where you have to rotate …

Above that 'why' does the bolt refuses to rotate? The explanations are elucidated in this article.

A car at rest remains as such unless the engine forces the wheels to rotate and initiate its motion. The same car requires brakes for it to achieve rest state. Let’s think of a hypothetical situation where you give a thrust, just enough to move it from rest state, to the car and leave it. The car, obviously, …

Gas molecules in the solution (present in dissolved state) and those in the gaseous state are in dynamic equilibrium with each other. Though the concentrations of gas in the dissolved and undissolved state remains constant there is a constant exchange of gas molecules at the surface. The constant exchange is such that the number of molecules entering dissolved state …

Those who love rebreather diving continuously extoll its virtues. What’s so great about rebreather diving, and should you try it?

Taravana syndrome, a disorder that is often reported in Polynesian divers. These divers make 50 m dives just by holding their breath. Taravana sickness is later deciphered to be decompression sickness. The sickness has something do with their profession. The symptoms of this sickness include joint pains, paralysis, vertigo, nausea and in rare cases death. The sickness is also …

The glory of atomic force microscopy and its method of working were discussed in the last article. However there were questions unanswered. How does one detect tiny motion in the tip caused due to forces exerted by atoms on the tip? This article focuses on these unanswered questions and takes you a little more closer to the science …

This article focuses on some unanswered questions and takes you a little more closer to the science invoked in atomic force microscopy.

Seemingly ugly, the black and white logo of IBM is a symbol of nanotechnology’s sophistication over the years. The lines in the logo are actually 5-base-long strands of DNA (Deoxyribose nucleic acid). Before we ponder over IBM’s obsession with making their logos using DNA’s and atoms, let’s discuss how IBM has achieved the once implausible task. A magical …

The goal of this article is introducing you to the amazing technology, atomic force microscopy.

As we have discussed during our Physics tuition classes, diodes are mostly made from semiconductors like, germanium and silicon. Diodes allow one direction flow of electric current, however, how do so can vary from one type to another. Some various types of diodes include: Light Emitting Diode Light emitting diodes, most of the times referred …

Diodes allow one direction flow of electric current, however, how do so can vary from one type to another. Some various types of diodes include:

Generally, quantities are classified as scalar or vector. Scalar quantities are those quantities which have only magnitude while vector quantities are those which have both direction of motion and magnitude. Each and every scalar quantity is related to a corresponding vector quantity. Linear acceleration and velocity from the scalar class are related to angular acceleration …

Bodies moving in a straight line have linear velocity while those moving in a circular motion have angular velocity.

Sound is a movement of rarefaction and pressure waves that can travel for prolonged distances. It’s produced by the particles’ vibration in a given medium; a medium can be defined as the material through which the sound travels. A medium must be present sound waves to propagate. There is a variety of types of media …

The word ‘Spectrum’ typically refers to the electromagnetic spectrum which consists of all the electromagnetic radiation frequencies. Previously, the term was limited to light only, but afterwards, it was revised to incorporate other waves, like the sound waves. The range of wavelengths is from a pico-meter to thousands of mega-meters. It contains the visible spectrum …

As we have learnt during our Physics tuition classes on Quantum Physics, electrons may take in incident energy for them to attain a higher energy state.
