A New Definition of Pressure Based on Kinetic Theory Derivations
A New Definition of Pressure Based on Kinetic Theory Derivations
Typical derivations of kinetic theory equations often exchange the contact time of the particle on a wall with the period of the particle's motion between walls. In this paper we redefine pressure as time-dependent in order to solve this issue and show that this definition makes much more intuitive and theoretical sense than our old definition of pressure.

Measurement of the dynamic viscosity of Canola Oil using a ball drop
Measurement of the dynamic viscosity of Canola Oil using a ball drop
The viscosity of a particular fluid is an interesting parameter that plays an important role in fluid dynamics of that fluid. We chose the common household cooking item canola oil. Using a ball drop, we set out to measure viscosity at various temperatures and create a model for the viscosity of canola oil as a function of temperature, as well as an accurate measurement for viscosity at room temperature. It was found that the viscosity between 0 and 40 degrees Celsius can be approximated using an exponential function and that an estimation for viscosity at room temperature was not very difficult to obtain. The precision of this measurement was limited by uncertainty in lab equipment used to measure various quantities as well as the image analysis software we used and the limited frame-rate of our camera.

Propagation of thermal diffusive waves in a metal by Fourier analysis
Propagation of thermal diffusive waves in a metal by Fourier analysis
Thermal wave phenomenon is observed is thin metallic rod by application of periodic heating. In this way, it is demonstrated that there is no wave nature in these improperly called thermal waves by showing that they do not transport energy and its propagation properties can be used to determine the thermal diffusivity of the material.

Charge to Mass Ratio of the Electron
Charge to Mass Ratio of the Electron
For an electron moving in a circular path in a magnetic field, if we know the magnetic field strength, accelerating voltage, and radius of the electron's trajectory, then we can make an estimation of the electron's charge to mass ratio. We calculated an average charge to mass ratio of \(2.08 \times 10^{11} \pm 1.81 \times 10^8\) Coulombs per kilogram.

AS / A Level Physics Definitive
This is written as a learning material for high school students, but since it is in LaTeX, I submitted it to the Overleaf Gallery. A guide for answering questions asking “define” or “what is meant by”, as well as some other tricky questions.

Errors and Uncertainties - Lab Report
Errors and Uncertainties - Lab Report
Physics being an experimental science, we sought to learn how to prepare a lab and perform as a team accounting for errors and uncertainties and to reduce them. We gathered values for volume using Micrometer, gathered information on acceleration, velocity, and created a histogram using a PASCO motion sensor. A jumping experiment was also performed with a human and the motion sensor. Our main goal was to test the effects of human error and eliminating mechanical error.
