Physics: what is angular momentum?

Minute Physics explains what is angular momentum. Basically, angular momentum comes into play when something moves in a circular path. A planet orbiting a star is such an example or a bike wheel rotating is another example. Momentum ( p = m * v) is in regards to movement in a straight line, angular momentum […]

More answers about Higgs Boson on Quora and Minute Physics

The Higgs Boson is considered to be an “excitation” (particle) of the Higgs Field which gives mass to particles that interact with it. Light does not interact much with it so it simply travel at 300,000 km/s. I liked the question and answers that were published on Quora. The quesditon jokingly asked what does one […]

What is matter? More than a LOT of empty space

Minute Physics is at it again. Henry Reich explains in a little over two minutes where is matter coming from and how Physics uses theories to build models of the world around us. Given the huge distances between the nuclei and their surrounding electrons one would hardly believe that matter could exist in such a… […]

It’s all about Physics – how the Standard Theory describes the Universe

Minute Physics is at it again. In a series of short videos he will explain what the Standard Theory is and how it helps us shape the mathematical models of the world we live in. It is incredibly interesting how a small formulae can describe why the Earth is round or why we revolve around […]

Math is weird – The Hairy Ball Theorem explained by Minute Physics [video]

Minute Physics shows us what happens if mathematicians have too much time on their hands. They’ve demonstrated that you cannot comb a ball of hair. Never, ever. It will always have a place where a hair sticks out. That is why I cannot get my hair to sit the way I want 😀 The Hairy […]

Time exists because of space – Minute Physics explains [video]

Minute Physics explains what time is and “time is a lot like space”. The existence of time is measured by the fact that entropy (ability of a system to become more disorderly over time) is increasing. Caltech physicist Sean Carroll explains that at first the Universe was a very ordered system and it’s becoming more […]
