Chocolate and CO2 sequestration

Rock properties can be a little tricky to understand. Especially new student that start to learn about porosity, believe that large porosity will result in a good rock to store things. This is called a reservoir rock. These things include oil and gas but are also very important for CO2 Sequestration. This is a process […]

Phantastic Physics!

Guns and physics mix pretty well. While I don’t want to advocate gun use! Nevertheless, they’re still a marvelous example when it comes to trajectories and the like. So two weeks ago the Veritasium Youtube Channel posted a puzzling video involving a gun and a wooden block, but see for yourself: So what do you […]

Amazing fluid dynamics

Fluid dynamics is just boring equations, right? Well have a look at this video and think again! Food-dye is always fun, especially when you get to mix it and get some colourful joy. But this is just amazing how this liquid creates “laminar flow”. If there were turbulences in the fluid while turning, you would […]

You don’t need to be a fabulous presenter. You don’t need to publish all your research in Nature. You don’t need to make it perfect. Go out there, tell people about your […]

Wave phenomenae

Within the last days a couple of amazing physics videos have been passed along on Twitter. My personal favorites are the two I want to talk about now. They basically involve some sort of experiment with oscillation or wave-like motion, with a twist. But see the first video for yourself: Coupled pendulums https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqFc4wriBvE Personally I […]
