  • Light Wave Particle Properties
    878 words
    Light is what we see. It can be thought of either as a particle, (the photon), or as a wave. The photon we can easily think of as a small dot travelling through space at the speed of light. Each photon has a particular colour or energy. But how do we think of light as a wave For this we need to know that light is also an "Electro-magnetic field" - a combination of electric-field and magnetic-field - the same thing that causes static electricity and magnets to attract (or repel) things. Light is ...
  • Hello Mr Einstein
    320 words
    My Interview With Einstein Me: Hello Mr. Einstein. Einstein: Hello Mr.? (in strong german a cent). Me: I heard that you sucked at math... is that true? Einstein: Well, when I was a child I constantly failed my math classes. However after I got into higher level mathematics I found it easier... i still don't do incredibly well in math however (in strong german a cent). Me: ok... enough small talk... now for the big question. Einstein: what would that be? (in strong german a cent). Me: What the he...
  • Different Kinds Of Optical Switches
    845 words
    Different Kinds of Optical Switches: The biggest problem with creating an all-optical network would be the switching; re-routing the information from source A to destination B. When information is sent, it does not flow directly from point A to point B. It passes through a series of switches that narrow the path down, and eventually the signal reaches point B. These switches have thousand's of possible routes which information can be transfered. Right now, the optical networks that stretch acros...
  • Columns Of The Light Pulse Transformers
    900 words
    The source is a nine volt battery. I'm creating energy by using light pulse transformers... columns of light pulse transformers... The timing is so that the base wire is a constant current. The columns of the light pulse transformers are in a circle all going to the same base wire. They fire like timed pistons in a car engine and are timed by previous pulses heading toward it. Each pulse travels through previous light pulse transformers to get to the last light pulse transformer to reach the bas...
  • Travel At A Speed Of Light
    1,969 words
    Light travels at about 186,000 miles per second. Now, by looking at this number you may conclude that light travels really fast. Sure it does compared to the fastest that we can go or anything that we have ever made can go. But if you look at how long it takes light to travel distances you probably won't think it's so fast anymore. The distance from Earth to the Moon is about 239,000 miles. That means that light takes 1.2 seconds to travel that far. Yeah that is still fast you may say. But light...
  • Light Travel Relative
    1,076 words
    Albert Einstein discovered the theory of relativity in the 1920's after starting thinking about it at the age of around 16. Albert Einstein's theory of time travel is basically theory of relativity. They are linked side-by-side. Relativity is only a theory because it cannot be proven. If it were a law it would have to be proven. In order to prove that relativity is a true we would need to conduct an experiment in which we would send an rocket with a person in it at 99.99% the speed of light then...
  • Relative To The Speed Of Light
    2,004 words
    In 1905, Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity was proposed. The reason that it is so "special" is because it was part of the more complex and extensive Theory of General Relativity, which was published in 1915. His theory reshaped the world of physics when it contradicted all previous laws of motion erected by Galileo and Newton. By mathematically manipulating these previous laws of motion, physicists in the nineteenth century were able to explain such phenomena as the flow of the ocean, the ...
