Physics is a natural science concerned with the study of matter and it’s relation to space and time. It looks at concepts related to this like energy and force in order to understand the behaviors of the universe.

A Small Object Like a Penny Dropped From High Enough Can Kill Someone

Due to the way terminal velocity caps the maximum speed that something can fall, a small and light object like a penny will never gain enough speed to kill someone regardless of how high it is dropped from.

Entropy is the Move From Order to Disorder

Entropy can be defined more than one way, but in simple terms it can be defined as a the move from order to disorder (the move from potential to equilibrium).

Extraterrestrial Diamonds are Common

Extraterrestrial diamonds are very common in the universe. It rains diamonds on some planets, other planets are made of diamonds, and there are even diamonds in stars!

All Electrons and Positrons Could Be a Single Entity

The one-electron universe theory postulates that all electrons and positrons are actually a single entity moving back and forth in time.

Potentially, Everything is Light

Nikola Tesla was said to have said “everything is light.” That is potentially correct. In theory, the universe could be explained by electromagnetic energy.

The Speed of Light is Constant (in a Perfect Vacuum)

In theory, the speed of light, in a perfect vacuum, measured from an inertial frame, is constant with an exact value of 299,792,458 m/s.

There is a Limit to How Many Times You Can Fold a Piece Paper

There is no limit to the amount of times one can fold a piece of paper in half if the paper is large enough. However, because the thickness of the paper grows exponentially, a lot of paper would be needed to make more than 8 folds.

There are More than Four States of Matter

The classical states of matter observable in every day life are solid, liquid, gas, and plasma, but there are many other known states of matter.

The Bed of Nails Principle

The bed of nails principle states that while laying on one nail is enough to puncture a person’s skin, laying on many distributed nails isn’t.

The Hubble Telescope Uses Real Colors

The Hubble Space Telescope images use real colors in the sense that their color palette correlates with the wavelengths of observed light.
