List of four fundamental forces of nature

Basic forces of nature physics The man has always desired to comprehend the complexity of nature in terms of as few elementary concepts as possible. Among its quest, in Feynman’s words,has been the one for “wheel within wheels”, the task of Natural Philosophy being to discover the innermost wheels if any such exits. A second quest has concentrated itself with ...

Types of friction with examples,advantages and disadvantages

What is friction in physics? “The force that opposes the motion of moving objects is called friction.” Have you ever noticed why a moving ball stops?Why bicycle stops when the cyclist stops pedaling?Naturally there must be some force that stops moving objects.Since a force not only moves an object but also stops moving object.Friction is a force that comes into ...

Types of forces:contact and non contact forces with examples

Fundamental forces of nature Difference between conservative and non conservative forces Frictional forces What is Force? “A force moves or tends to move,stops or tends to stop the motion of object.The force can also change the direction of motion of an object.”It can also change the shape or size of a body on which it acts. In classical physics real ...

Temperature and 3 types of temperature scales

Different types of thermometer  What is temperature in physics? “The temperature of a body is the degree of hotness or coldness of the body.”or “Average kinetic energy of atoms or molecules.”When we touch a body,we feel it hot or cold.The temperature of a body tells us how hot or cold a body is. When two systems are in thermal equilibrium,we ...

Difference between stable unstable and neutral equilibrium with examples

Types  of equilibrium in physics There are three states or types  of equilibrium in physics Stable equilibrium Unstable equilibrium Neutral equilibrium Stable equilibrium “A body is said to be in stable equilibrium if after a slight tilt it returns to its previous position.” Consider a book lying on the table.Tilt the book slightly about its one edge by lifting it ...
