Frictional resistance to the relative motion of two solid objects is usually proportional to the force which presses the surfaces together as well as the roughness of the surfaces. Since it is the ...
Gecko use the Van de Waals force to stick themselves to surfaces but how do they unstick themselves. This article provides the answer.
With this applet you can generate 6 Quadric Surfaces, and a cylinder, and you can do all that in about a minute
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 ...
Basic theory of quantum mechanics, from origins - photoelectric effect, wave particle duality, via Schrodingers equation to matrix mechanics
This site gives an overview of the physics of mechanics through a series of links to relevant articles.
Index for information on mechanics, short but good explanations.
