The Socratic Method

The Socratic Method, or Socratic Learning Method, which is what we advocate during our Physics tuition classes, is based on a questions planned to test logic and fact to help a person or group decide on their consistency on certain ideas or concepts. The Socratic Method through discussion between individuals,…

Theoretical Physics

Theoretical physics is a sub-discipline of physics that concerns the use of mathematics and mathematical models to explain, or predict, natural phenomena. Theoretical physics includes the study of concepts that cannot be tested using conventional methods or experimentation, or at least not in our lifetime. While it has recently been…

What Is Energy?

From turning on the lights in your room, to lighting a fire – energy is everywhere. Even if you decide to spend your day lazily watching television on the couch, your body still uses energy. That being said, energy cannot be created or destroyed; it can only be transferred from…

Physics of Radiation

Radiation is essentially a form of energy that passes through space and/or certain materials and can be classified into two major groups: ionizing and non-ionizing. Ionizing radiation describes high amounts of energy being released from a source, having the potential to ionize (move the electrons) atoms. In contrast, non-ionizing radiation…

Capacitor Based Sensors

The smartphones of the recent times are all equipped with a technology where the phone can detect the portrait and landscape orientations and change the screen accordingly, popularly called as automatic screen rotation. The sensors used are called as accelerometers. These sensors not only detect the orientation of the screen…
