But from a physics perspective, it’s a cube sliding down an inclination. Just like in your introductory physics course.
So here is a block on a low-grade resistance inclined plane–see, that’s just like a bobsled.
Ruapehu, on the north island of New Zealand, is one of the most restless volcanoes in the island country. However, it has been a quiet( almost) decade for the picturesque volcano. The last confirmed outburst from Ruapehu was back in 2007, and it was a very small explosive outburst. You have to go back over … Read More

It’s ever evoking when an athlete comes out, specially a male contestant who generally faces more racism and potentially homophobic actions in the sporting world. So when Kenworthy, … Read More
The area cleared all over the Soyuz rocket at Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan extends for more than a mile before contacting comments and observations province where family and colleagues gather on launch period. To watch from afar has two or more advantages. It is easier on the cervix, for one. The booming of the 26 … Read More
No we are capable of deny that there are some great physics videos out there in the wild internet. Today, I detected this one Phillipsea/ Imgur floating around–featuring what appears to be a worker that is required to get out of a cone-shaped flaw. Oh sure, he could possibly climb up the side or maybe … Read More
A YouTuber that goes by Kelly Murphy lately uploaded a GoPro video of herself snowboarding. Filming yourself doing such a thing was not able to odd , but what she captured in the background will certainly give you shiverings. She was stands ready to pate down a mountain( terminated with cute sing) when she inadvertently … Read More
When the world’s attention shakes to South Korea on February 9, the eyewitness and players will be thinking about more than gold medals. The saber-rattling between the neighboring Koreas realizes for an ominous backdrop to the XXIII Olympic Winter Games, a tension that hearing the countries’ players march under the same flag and skate on … Read More
