Newtonian motivations for general relativity print that page

generates curvature in space and that curvature affects the motion of masses can be illustrated in a Newtonian setting. We use circular orbits as our prototype. This has the advantage that we know the kinetics of circular orbits. This allows us to calculate curvature of orbits in space

Dark star (Newtonian mechanics) print that page


A dark star is a theoretical object compatible with Newtonian mechanics that, due to its large mass, has a surface escape velocity that equals or exceeds the speed of light . How light is affected by gravity under Newtonian mechanics is questionable but if it were accelerated the same

Quantum mechanics print that page

Quantum mechanics differs significantly from classical mechanics in its predictions when the scale of observations becomes comparable to the atomic and sub-atomic scale, the so-called quantum realm . However, many macroscopic properties of systems can only be fully understood and explained

Ruggero Santilli print that page


Santilli is now CEO and Chief Scientist of MagneGas Corporation. [ edit ] Work [ edit ] Hadronic mechanics and hadronic chemistry Although Santilli has published papers in the mainstream scientific literature, a large amount of his work has dealt with his so-called hadronic mechanics

Classical mechanics print that page


In physics , classical mechanics is one of the two major sub-fields of mechanics , which is concerned with the set of physical laws describing the motion of bodies under the action of a system of forces. The study of the motion of bodies is an ancient one, making classical mechanics one

Lagrangian mechanics print that page

In Lagrangian mechanics , the trajectory of a system of particles is derived by solving the Lagrange equations in one of two forms, either the Lagrange equations of the first kind , [ 1 ] which treat constraints explicitly as extra equations, often using Lagrange multipliers ; [ 2 ] [ 3 ]

Orbit print that page


system . [ 1 ] [ 2 ] Orbits of planets are typically elliptical . Current understanding of the mechanics of orbital motion is based on Albert Einstein 's general theory of relativity , which accounts for gravity as due to curvature of space-time , with orbits following geodesics ; though

Fluid mechanics print that page


The study of fluid mechanics goes back at least to the days of ancient Greece , when Archimedes investigated fluid statics and buoyancy and formulated his famous law known now as the Archimedes' Principle . Rapid advancement in fluid mechanics began with Leonardo da Vinci (observation
