Diffraction of Light

What is Diffraction of light? Diffraction of light is an act defined as the bending of light rays across the edges of a surface. Diffraction is regarded as a universal phenomenon possessed by waves. A major question arises just by reading out the definition of diffraction that where it is observed and how this happens. […]

Components of Electric Circuit

The elements or components of electric circuits are the ones that form the circuit in order to provide accurate circuit operation. The fundamental components of electric circuits are resistor, inductor, and capacitor. What is an Electric Circuit? An electric circuit is defined as a closed-loop within which the flow of electric current takes place in […]

Electromotive Force

What is Electromotive Force? Electromotive Force is an electrical phenomenon which results in the generation of electric potential (voltage). Electrochemical cells or changing magnetic fields generally give rise to electromotive force. It is the fundamental property of an energy source that permits the motion of charges within the circuit. Table of Contents Sources Symbol Introduction […]

Energy Conversion

What is Energy Conversion? The term conversion represents change or transformation. In correspondence to energy, the term conversion defines the transformation or change of energy from one specific form to another. Thus, changing one type of energy to a different type is what we call Energy Conversion. The alternative term for it is Energy Transformation. […]

Wave Interference and its Types

What is Wave Interference? The interaction of waves travelling in the same medium causes them to get interfered with, is wave interference. Basically, when two or more waves having the same phase and frequency meet at a point while travelling in a medium, then the amplitude of waves either increase, decrease or remain the same […]

Nuclear Force

What is Nuclear Force? A force that binds nucleons (a combination of protons and electrically neutral particles, i.e., neutrons) together within the nucleus is the Nuclear Force. It is one of the fundamental forces of nature, like gravitational and electromagnetic forces. The alternative term for nuclear force is Strong Force. Table of Contents Basic What […]

Thermal Stress

What is Thermal Stress? The meaning of the word ‘thermal’ is ‘temperature’. So, the stress which is produced as the result of temperature variation is what we call thermal stress. More simply, we define thermal stress as the restoring force per unit area which is produced when a temperature change deforms a body or material. […]


What is Trajectory? Trajectory is the curved path followed by an object with a certain mass while moving through space with respect to time. It is also known as Flight Path. Projectile motion gives rise to trajectory as it is such a motion in which the moving object follows a curved path in the air […]

Electric Field Intensity

The electric field intensity is defined as the amount of force that a unit charge experiences when placed in an electric field. It is a vector quantity as its value is defined by magnitude along with the direction. It is the measure of the force which is exerted by the source charge on the test […]

Types of Magnetic Materials

Introduction We all are familiar with the word ‘magnet’ and so with the term ‘magnetic materials. In general, we know that every matter is magnetic. Basically, every element in the universe possesses some magnetic behaviour as their composition involves charged particles, i.e., proton and electron. However, the degree of possessing magnetism differs from one to […]
