Chapter 14 1. Radio galaxies have sources of unusually strong radio waves emitted on either side of the galaxy and active galaxies are spirals with small, highly luminous cores like Seyfert galaxies, they also have nuclei that are produced by matter plunging into super-massive black holes. 6. By observing the velocity of the stars that orbit the black hole or by the rotational speed of its accretion disk. 10.
Science Physics Core science questions and answers- Topic 1- The solar system- 1. What is a geocentric model? It is a model with the earth at the centre. 2. Describe two differences between ptolemy’s and Copernicus’s models- What is at the centre of the model and the way in which the planets followed smaller circles in their orbits in ptolemy’s model.
Cosmic Strings: To know the exact physical situation at early stages of the formation of our universe is still challenging subject of study. At the very early stages of evolution of the universe, it is generally assumed that during phase transition (as the universe passes through its critical temperature) the symmetry of the universe is broken spontaneously. It can give rise to topologically stable defects such as strings, domain walls and monopoles. The study of string theory has received considerable attention in cosmology. Cosmic strings are important in the early stages of evolution of the universe before particle creation.
Also, for every force, there is an equal and opposite force acting against it. With the exception of gravity, the electromagnetic force is the force responsible for practically all the encounters in daily life above the nuclear scale. Roughly speaking, all the forces involved in interactions between atoms can be explained by the electromagnetic force acting on the electrically charged atomic nuclei and electrons inside and around the atoms, together with how these particles carry momentum by their movement. This includes the forces we experience in pushing or pulling ordinary material objects, which come from the intermolecular forces between the individual molecules in our bodies and those in the objects. With the exception of gravity, electromagnetic phenomena as described by quantum electrodynamics account for almost all physical phenomena observable to the human senses, including light and other electromagnetic radiation, all of chemistry, most of mechanics (excepting gravitation), and, of course, magnetism and electricity.
This saying has been proved by Quantum Physics and the law of conservation of energy with scientific experiments and become a universal law. At that point we accept the law of cause and effect, but why we should believe the necessity of the first cause (an uncaused cause) instead of infinite regress concerning the cause of the universe? According to the principle of sufficient reason by Gottfried Leibniz, there must be a cause for everything that comes into existence; the whole universe is a vast, interlocking chain of things that come into existence, as they come into existence, each of these things must have a cause. If there is no first cause, we can only explain each particular thing in short run by tracking the preceding mover, but nothing is explained in long run, or ultimately. In that case the whole universe is unexplained, which have violated the principle of sufficient reason for everything.
In string theory, as in guitar playing, the string must be stretched under tension in order to become excited. However, the strings in string theory are floating in spacetime, they aren't tied down to a guitar. Nonetheless, they have tension. The string tension in string theory is denoted by the quantity 1/(2 p a'), where a' is pronounced "alpha prime"and is equal to the square of the string length scale. If string theory is to be a theory of quantum gravity, then the average size of a string should be somewhere near the length scale of quantum gravity, called the Planck length, which is about 10-33 centimeters, or about a millionth of a billionth of a billionth of a billionth of a centimeter.

A repercussion of these endless possibilities is the Many-worlds interpretation which relies on quantum mechanics to explain how all possible alternate histories and futures may exist within different worlds (Everett 4). For each possible outcome to an action, our world splits into an exact replica of itself, a process known as decohesion (Clark 4). For instance, an objects wave function can be said to be of both particulate or of wave nature. Therefore, when a physicist measures the nature of this particle, the object can either be measured as a wave or a particle. To incorporate both of these possible outcomes, the universe splits into two.
INTRODUCTION TO NUCLEAR REACTION: The main features of nuclear reactions include radioactive decay, nuclear fission and nuclear fusion. Radioactive decay: Energy is released in a radioactive decay in the form of the kinetic energy of the particle emitted (α and β), the kinetic energy of the daughter nucleus and the energy of the gamma-ray photon that may accompany the decay. The energy involved may be calculated by finding the mass defect of the reaction. The energy released is the energy equivalent of the mass defect of the reaction. Nuclear fission: Nuclear fission is the process in which a large nucleus breaks into two smaller nuclei that are almost equal in mass.
