Equation #15: Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics In thermodynamics, being in thermal equilibrium with another body is nothing but a way of saying that the two bodies are at same temperature (definition of temperature). Basically, this law states that if two

## The Photoelectric Effect

Equation #14: Photoelectric Effect Albert Einstein was awarded the Nobel prize for his explanation of the photoelectric effect: when light is shone on a metal surface, electrons are ejected. However, the light cannot be of just any wavelength, it has

## Faraday’s Law of Electromagnetic Induction

Equation #12: Faraday’s Law of Electromagnetic Induction Faraday was an excellent experimenter. He discovered the principle behind Generators and Electric Motors without knowing advanced mathematics! His law of electromagnetic induction states that if you change the magnetic flux going through

## Simple Harmonic Motion

Equation #6: Simple Harmonic Motion Every oscillating object can be approximated by an ordinary differential equation(given above), assuming the amplitude of oscillation stays small. In this case, there has to be a force acting on the object keeping it oscillating

## Newton’s second law of motion

Equation #5: law of motion Newton’s second law, as it was written, states that “the alteration of motion is ever proportional to the motive force impress’d; and is made in the direction of the right line in which that force
