Some principles of physics can be demonstrated through the functioning of bicycles.
Electric motors are present in many areas of our everyday lives. Let's learn about the different types.
The Rutherford Experiment proved the existence of positively charged atomic nuclei. The results led to the elaboration of a new atomic model.
This animation demonstrates Sir Isaac Newton's three laws of motion that laid the foundation for classical mechanics.
The formation of the Sun and the planets started with the contraction of a dust cloud about 4.5 billion years ago.
This animation explains transparency and opacity, the principle of radiography, and the light-absorbing properties of materials.
This animation introduces the studies of astronomers and physicists whose works fundamentally changed our view of the universe.
One of the most modern means of transport is the Maglev, capable of travelling at speeds of over 400 km/h.
This animation demonstrates the structure of nitrogen molecules, with one sigma and two pi bonds holding the atoms together.
