Blackbody Radiation hyperphysics.phyastr.gsu.edu/HBASE/iras.html ... about 20 microns was observed from dust, etc. in the ecliptic plane . Treating it as blackbody radiation and using the Wien displacement law , an effective temperature of about 145 K was obtained for this solar system debris. Some ...
Pressure hyperphysics.phyastr.gsu.edu/Hbase/pbuoy.html ... sink more rapidly. But the buoyant force on each is the same because of identical pressure environments and equal water displacement. The difference in behavior comes from the comparison of that buoyant force with the weight of the object. ...
Pendulum 230nsc1.phyastr.gsu.edu/hbase/pend.html ... Go Back Pendulum Motion The motion of a simple pendulum is like simple harmonic motion in that the equation for the angular displacement is Show which is the same form as the motion of a mass on a spring: The anglular frequency of the ...
Sound and Periodic Motion 230nsc1.phyastr.gsu.edu/hbase/soushm.html ... undergo simple harmonic motion when released. A mass on a spring is the standard example of such periodic motion . If the displacement of the mass is plotted as a function of time, it will trace out a pure sine wave. It turns out that the ...
Slit Interference 230nsc1.phyastr.gsu.edu/hbase/phyopt/slits.html ... Slit Interference Displacement y = (Order m x Wavelength x Distance D )/( slit separation d ) For double slit separation d = micrometers = x10^ m and light wavelength λ = nm at order m = , on a screen at distance D = cm the displacement ...
Basic Properties of Vectors hyperphysics.phyastr.gsu.edu/Hbase/vbas.html ... Common textbook representations of vectors include boldfaced letters and boldface with an arrow above them. For example a displacement vector of 30 meters east could be represented in a variety of ways: The magnitude of the vector might be ...
Sound and Periodic Motion hyperphysics.phyastr.gsu.edu/HBASE/sound/sound.html ... cycle, T in seconds/cycle Frequency : the number of cycles per second, f in 1/seconds or Hertz (Hz) Amplitude : the maximum displacement from equilibrium A and if the periodic motion is in the form of a traveling wave , one needs also ...

Transverse and Longitudinal Waves hyperphysics.phyastr.gsu.edu/Hbase/sound/tralon.html Transverse and Longitudinal Waves Transverse Waves For transverse waves the displacement of the medium is perpendicular to the direction of propagation of the wave. A ripple on a pond and a wave on a string are easily visualized transverse ...
