Once again the Rooks Heath year 13 students were lucky to be able to take part in the particle physics master class. http://www.stfc.ac.uk/PPD/22610.aspx The day followed the format of last year’s course so see the following link for more information about the lectures. http://rooksheathscience.wordpress.com/2012/03/20/particle-physics-masterclass-2012/ The day started with a lecture given by Professor Bill Scott […]Read more "Particle Physics Master Class 2013"
Researching Superconductivity by Alfie Mussett The discovery of superconductivity Superconductivity was first observed in mercury by Dutch physicist Heike Kamerlingh Onnes. When he cooled the mercury to the same temperature as liquid helium (which comes out to about -269 degrees Celsius) the mercury’s resistance suddenly disappeared! He later won a Physics Nobel Prize in 1913 […]Read more "Superconductivity by year 12 physics students"
Introduction to the Electromagnetic spectrum The electromagnetic spectrum is a group of transverse waves that do not require a medium to travel through and it is divided up into sections based on frequency/wavelength and how each section is produced. In a vacuum each member has the same speed of 3xE8m/s but the speeds are different […]Read more "Electromagnetic Spectrum by year 12 physics students"
