The natural laws, things we take for granted on a daily basis, are things we haven't given much thought to. When we drop something, it falls. The end. We don't pull a Galileo and spend years dropping things of different masses and sizes to figure out why. But there are 10 quick and fun ways to SEE our natural laws in action, explained and de-mystified. Watch, and be amazed by how easily some of these simple experiments explain complex physics.back to page 1
Levitation is real! Hovercars, here we come! So, what's the science here? In a weak applied field, a superconductor "expels" nearly all magnetic flux.When superconducting materials reach their critical temperature two exciting things happen. The electrical resistance of the material drops rapidly to zero and then they become perfect diamagnets (they exclude all magnetic flux from the superconductor – the Meissner Effect).
