This interferometer makes use of multiple reflections between two closely spaced partially silvered surfaces. Part of the light is transmitted each time the light reaches the second surface, ...
Part of the power of Gauss' law in evaluating electric fields is that it applies to any surface. It is often convenient to construct an imaginary surface called a Gaussian surface to take advantage ...
Description of how the properties of water such as surface tension, specific heat and phase changes enable life on earth.
Properties of water including state changes, adhesion and cohesion, capillary action and surface tension.
Capillary action is the result of adhesion and surface tension. Find out all about it on this excellent site.
Short definitions for topics related to tension (some areas unfinished).
Reverberation is the collection of reflected sounds from the surfaces in an enclosure like an auditorium.
A complicated simulation tool showing how a planes wing works and the airflows over a number of surfaces.
The reverberant sound in an auditorium dies away with time as the sound energy is absorbed by multiple interactions with the surfaces of the room.
One typical type of gyroscope is made by suspending a relatively massive rotor inside three rings called gimbals. Mounting each of these rotors on high quality bearing surfaces insures that very ...
