The Lens Equation
Abstract:
Combinations of different kinds of lenses have a vast amount of applications.
Things like projectors, astronomical telescopes, Galilean Opera Glass, microscopes
and Terrestrial Telescopes all use different combinations of lense
Abstract:
A direct current circuit is a circuit where the current (I) flows in one direction.
In a direct current circuit, conductors connect different conformations of resistors and
potential sources. According to Ohms law, elements where the current is
Light Spectrum Of Hydrogen
Abstract:
The light from gas consists of sharply defined wavelengths of color light.
Using a prism this light can be separated into what is called a line spectrum that
is specific to each individual gas. This makes for a good te
Basic Sound Measurement
Abstract:
Sound waves are associated with their frequencies and amplitudes. At a
constant temperature (about 20 C), sound waves propagate at 340m/s. Also, when
waves interfere with each other, standing waves can be created, which a

Abstract
By graphing the experimentally determined angular accelerations of objects and then
plotting them against m(g-a), the moment of inertia was found to be 0.0063gm2 with no
additional mass, 0.0324gm2 with
