If all things consist of molecules, why is it that some materials are transparent while others aren’t? Why is glass transparent? Continue reading Why is glass transparent?
We describe the famous double-slit experiment, which proved to be fundamental to our current understanding of quantum physics. Continue reading The double-slit experiment
We discuss what electromagnetic radiation is and why ionising radiation is dangerous. We discuss how a microwave oven heats up food, and vitamins too. Continue reading Is microwave oven radiation unhealthy?
We provide a semi-in-depth look into why glass and liquids bend light. We discuss quantum fields, Maxwell’s equations, and vectors. No calculations. Continue reading Why, exactly, do glass and liquids refract light?
Albert Einstein didn’t win the Nobel Prize with his famous formula from the special theory of relativity. What formula did he win the Prize with then? Continue reading The formula that got Albert Einstein the Nobel Prize and should stop us getting sunburn all the time
