Speed is a distance over time, or how far you travel in a certain amount of time!
What is Work?
I'm sure tons of things come to mind when you hear the word work. Most of them are probably things like a job, or homework, chores, or keeping your mouth shut when that one relative is rambling about some new conspiracy at the family Christmas get-together. When it comes to science, work has a very specific, very mathy, meaning.
What is Air Resistance? + Terminal Velocity
No matter where you are on earth, gravity is basically exactly the same. So why then does a bowling ball hit the ground before a feather?
Crash: Seatbelts, Airbags, and the Science of Safety

No matter how you put it, the 2nd law describes the “how” of it all. How are force, mass, and acceleration related? To get a better … Continue reading What is Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion?
How far Away is the Sun?
Space is big. Time is scary. The universe is beautiful.
What is Gravity?
You attract the universe, and the universe attracts you. Everything you see, and everything you don't, as long as it has a mass, is affected by gravity. From the phone sitting next to me as I type this, to my cup of tea. From me to Jupiter, nearly 465 million miles away (driving 60 mph, it would take about 885 years to get there).
