Underdamping: A Wet Blanket

In the last post, I wrote rather briefly on the complex lissajous trajectories – when simple harmonic motion is no longer constrained to a single degree of freedom and the frequencies of both the x and y oscillations are different, the oscillations take on the form of parabolas, ellipses and closed loops. 579 more words



I delivered this piece today to a lovely couple in Sheffield who, hopefully will enjoy rocking their baby boy to sleep or reading him a story before bed time. 197 more words

AC#47 Proof: The Solar Neutrino

This is a diagram of nuclear fusion, the nuclear reaction that occurs inside stars and generates the energy necessary to keep them alive. In a previous post, I explained nuclear fusion and the proton-proton chain in more detail, but all you need to know for this post is when two of those red balls collide, they’ll eventually (at the end of this “chain” of reactions) produce a helium nucleus, but they immediately produce the solar neutrino. 990 more words
