Physics: Featured Facts
Sonic Boom
Physics / Atmospheric

They sound like thunder, but they're not. They're sonic booms, concentrated blasts of sound waves created as vehicles travel faster than the speed of sound. To understand how the booms are created, lo continue reading this fact

Don't Make Waves
Physics / Classical Mechanics

Swimmer Fast and slow swimming pools? What are they? A given pool's walls and other components may create and reflect waves making it more difficult (slow) for athletes to swim. A fast pool minimizes wave int continue reading this fact
