    The Nature of Dark Matter We observe the universe around us through many scientific means. However it is through the electromagnetic spectrum, that is everything from radio waves to gamma waves, that we learn about the objects in our world and beyond. However we can also learn about our universe through indirect means, such as the effect of gravity on light as well as larger objects like our galaxy. In fact it is this indirect method of observation that has led us to the discovery of extra-solar...

    Dark Matter Andrew Bilbrey Honors Physical Science Mr. Crupi 9/17/97 I'll be the first one to admit it. Dark mater is a boring subject. But until we can all grasp the meaning of quantum physics and what our universe is made of, we will never understand ourselves. This is what dark matter is all about; what scientists have been mystified about for the past few years. Many questions have come up in the study of this puzzling matter, but maybe we should start out with the basics. The Basics All th...

    Looking for the Invisible: Search for the Dark Matter There is perhaps no current problem of greater importance to astrophysics and cosmology than that of dark matter. The search for dark matter has dominated cosmology for half of the century. But one might ask, what is dark matter What is it consisting of And, how do we know that its there As much as 90 percent of the matter in the universe is invisible. Detecting this dark matter will help astronomers better comprehend the universe's destiny. ...
  • Dark Matter Physics Energy Field
    513 words
    What Is Physics and What Are Its Uses? Physics, a branch of science, is traditionally defined as the study of matter, energy, and the relation between them. The interaction between matter and energy is found everywhere. In order for matter to move, it requires some form of energy. Sports show many good examples of the relationship between matter and energy. For instance, a pitcher requires energy to throw a baseball at the incredible speed and accuracy that is needed to keep the batter from usi...
  • Lab On Matter Thermal Equilibrium
    521 words
    I. Introduction A. Purpose: the purpose of this experiment was to determine if the distance between matter effects the time it takes for the matter to reach thermal equilibrium. B. Hypothesis: If the distance between the matter is decreased then the time it takes for the matter to reach thermal equilibrium will decrease. C. Science concepts: Temperature- measure of the motion of molecules Thermal equilibrium- when two pieces of matter are the same temperature Kinetic energy- energy of motion He...
  • Views Of Matter Capra 1977
    2,638 words
    What exactly is matter, it is not an every day question that one asks one's own self. When looked at there are many different views on this subject, however because of the numerous numbers of different views, it is only possible to look at three of the discourses. The three discourses of matter to be looked at are; the Religious, Scientific, and Philosophical. Each discourse has evolved through time into the views that we know, and accept today. The distinction between these views on matter diff...
  • Electric Charge Negatively Charged
    604 words
    In some Greek experiments, objects attracted each other after rubbing. Other experiments produced objects that pushed away, or repelled, each other. The evidence showed that electric force made matter either attract or repel other matter. Electric force is caused by electric charge. Electric charge is a property of the bits of matter within atoms. Electric force can cause matter to attract or repel because there are two kinds of charge - positive and negative charge. The effects of electric for...
  • Solids Liquids And Gases
    528 words
    Solids, liquids, and gases are the three main, or fundamental phases of matter. Each one has a different density and a different level of stability. What determines the stability of each phase is the bond between it's atoms. The tighter the bond between it's atoms the more stable that phase of matter is. Solids are the most stable form of matter, followed by liquids, and then gases. Solids have a definite shape and do not take the shape of their container. Liquids do not have any definite shape...

Until there is a practical use, this is merely an attempt to prove which research lab will be the first to manufacture the anti-matter elements. Ordinary matter has negatively charged electrons circling a positively charged nuclei. Anti-matter has positively cha...
  • Materialism And Idealism Mind Body Dependent
    297 words
    Materialism is 'The metaphysical doctrine that matter with its motions and qualities is the ultimate reality of all things'; (Miller 156). This basically means that the nature of the world is entirely dependent on matter. Idealism is 'The metaphysical theory that all things are constituted by mind and its ideas'; (Miller 132). This basically means that the nature of the world is entirely dependent on the mind and its ideas. A materialist would believe that the mind is only part of the matter th...

    1. 'When making a decision in the real world, it's a common and popular method to diffuse conflict by saying, 'oh, it's not a matter of life and death.' However, when a funeral director is making decisions regarding the most appropriate methods for his or her actions on a daily basis, or in a difficult situation at a funeral home, it is a matter of life and death. It is a matter of death because of the nature of the subject matter of the profession. It is a matter of life for the dead person's l...

  • Dark Matter Universe Mass Particles

    There is perhaps no current problem of greater importance to astrophysics and cosmology than that of 'dark matter'. The controversy, as the name implies, is centered on the notion that there may exist an enormous amount of matter in the Universe that cannot be detected from the light that it emits. The evidence of dark matter is from the motions of astronomical objects, specifically stellar, galactic, and galaxy cluster / super cluster observations. The basic argument is that if we measure veloc...

    Fight For A Place in the First Efficient Cause Who and what is God? Why do some people adamantly conclude that a God exists? St. Aquinas goes from believing that there must be an efficient first cause to the conclusion that God is that cause. Why must Aquinas make such an extraordinary jump from there being a cause, to assuming that this cause must be God? In a scientific point of view, wouldn't it be just as plausible to make matter the first cause? After all, according to the Law of Conservati...
  • Water Baptism Baptize With Invalid
    595 words
    Roman Catholic Church practices seven sacraments, and Baptism is by far one of the most important of them. The reason for this is that Holy Baptism in the Catholic Church is the door of spiritual life; for it we are made members of Christ and incorporated with the Church. And since through the first man death entered into all, unless we be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, we can not enter into the kingdom of Heaven (Williams, 1988). Therefore, since Catholics believe that they cannot ente...

However, this theme when viewed in Now Matter What could apply to many of life's challenges because of its's implicit, whereas Romeo and Juliet deals with many other complex themes, for example the futility of violence and revenge, creating a timeless, universal classic. We can understand the message of No Matter Wh...

    Black Black Holes Black Holes Black holes are one of the more bizarre and intriguing predictions of Einstein's theory of gravity. Surprisingly, there is now a great deal of observational evidence that black holes do exist, both in binary star systems and at the center of most galaxies, including our own. Although we are gaining more knowledge of black holes, they still remain one of the strangest things anyone has ever heard of, and we may never know what exactly one of these things are and can ...
