In my AP Physics class we were required to create a mousetrap car that was able to roll 45 feet in order to obtain a 100 test grade. I was quite excited by this challenge, and created a car that rolled a total of 60 feet on the first test run, only taking a total of 3 hours to build! Here, I will be instructing you how to build a successful mousetrap car.
Black holes are awesome, we all know what they’re capable of, but how do black holes even impact us human beings on earth from deep space? Well for one, it could lead to the destruction of earth. If there were ever the chance of a physicist creating a tiny black hole in a lab, and lose control of it, it would essentially spaghettify everything and anything in its path and ultimately wipe out the entire human race and our planet.

Quantum mechanics can be a quite entangling subject. Such is the topic of quantum entanglement. As I was reading Brian Greene’s “The Fabric of the Cosmos” and encountered the idea of locality and nonlocality, I became quite intrigued but yet confused. Continue reading “Nonlocality – When Particles Can Affect One Another From Large Distances”
Although there are various problems in today’s society, a problem that itches the back of my and physicists’ minds continues to exist. The struggle to unify the theories of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity is ever-growing. Continue reading “Unifying Quantum Mechanics and the Theory of Relativity”
