What is gravitational field strength?

What is gravitational field strength?

Gravity is the force that acts between any two masses, which means that you are actually attracted to all your friends, no matter how much you deny it! Fortunately we are usually strong enough to overcome the attraction because it only becomes strong enough for us to notice its effects when the masses…

Check your knowledge about how ESD can ruin your day. If there ever was a silent killer for electronic devices, it s ESD (electrostatic discharge). A little zap from a finger, a charged metallic part, or an IC tray can cause an inrush of current that can damage sensitive IC. Trust me, for I know. When…

Isaac Newton apple tree story

Isaac Newton apple tree story

We ve all heard the story. A young Isaac Newton is sitting beneath an apple tree contemplating the mysterious universe. Suddenly - boink! -an apple hits him on the head. Aha! he shouts, or perhaps, Eureka! In a flash he understands that the very same force that brought the apple crashing toward the ground also keeps the moon falling toward the Earth and the Earth falling…

Sir Isaac Newton theory

Sir Isaac Newton theory

While the study of Calculus may not have been your thing back in design school, the person who developed Calculus also influenced the color wheel you use today. The color wheel’s roots date back to the mid-1600s when Sir Isaac Newton’s work with white light led him to the discovery of the visible spectrum of light. Newton observed the way each color of light would bend as it…

Where was Higgs boson discovered?

Where was Higgs boson discovered?

The elusive Higgs boson, the so-called God particle,may not have been discovered despite claims of it being detected, some scientists are saying. Particle physicists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research announced 2 years ago they had discovered the Higgs particle, considered the foundation particle in the Standard Model of Particle physics, and a Nobel Prize was…

Gravitational field strength equation

Gravitational field strength equation

The gravitational field intensity (EG) or (g) is the force on a unit mass at a point in the field. Since the force (F) on a body of mass m in a gravitational field of a body of mass M = GMm/r2 you can see that the force per unit mass is given by F/m. So: Gravitational Field Intensity (EG) = (g) = F/m = GM/r2 the units for EG are Nkg-1 or since F = ma, F/m = a and so EG may…
