Possibly extremely dense neutron stars giving off radiation. Once thought to be the bright centre of other galaxies.


These are neutron stars that emit an enourmous amount of radiation. They spin hundreds of times

Formed from very large stars collapsing. Between 10 and 100 km in diameter a they can have a mass many times that of the sun. A star 8 times that of the sun creates a neutron star 1.5 times that of the sun. The rest

No dimensions. Cells take light from it to tell other cells where to go in growing. Where does gravity come from? There is infinite energy from gravity so in theory it could be converted into infinite mass.

  1. Determine the value of 'g', where 'g' is the acceleration due to gravity.

    This method reduced a lot of error in my calculation. I will repeat the method when collecting my original results so that any average can be obtained, hence reducing the error even more. Now the main error left is going to be the reaction time of the human when using the equipment.

  2. Is Space Exploration Worth the Cost?

    This is pennies per person per day, and is considerably less than some of the unnecessary materialistic things American citizens spend their money on. For example in 2006 Americans spent more than $154 billion on alcohol and in 2004 pet related sales amounted to $31 billion, double NASA's budget for that year.

  1. Diffraction Grating with White Light Source

    * The human error--- As the observer needs to judge where the middle of the red band of the first order spectrum is, due to the insensitive and weak ability of the human eyes, it is really difficult to find out the position exactly.

  2. Refractive index by tracing light rays

    My line of sight moved towards D. The line was noticed to disappear suddenly from view at a certain point. 4. Two pins were placed to mark the direction beyond which the dark line just could not be seen. 5.

  1. What is the speed of sound waves?

    Also the line goes through the origin which is correct, because if the plate was struck 10cm above the two microphones which had no distance between them, they would both pick up the sound at the same time. Therefore the fast timer would not have recorded any time.

  2. Study the interference of light using Helium - Neon Diode Laser.

    As we see later, two coherent sources of light can be produced by using a single primary source of light. DESTRUCTIVE INTERFERENCE Consider now a point P in Figure 19.1 whose distance from B is half a wavelength longer than its distance from A, AP - BP = .

  1. Waves and Cosmology - AQA GCE Physics Revision Notes

    They each have a n equivalent antiparticle. * Leptons are small point like particles and electron is a lepton with a charge of -1e and its antiparticle, the positron, has a charge of +1e * There?re 3 leptons families the electron (e), muon (?)

  2. I intend to investigate whether any correlation exists between the wavelength of light exerted ...

    Ultimately, my level of physics knowledge is not advanced enough to be able to propose any hypothesis. What I am expecting, are lower response times from the cell as the wavelength increases. Looking at spectral response graphs of various solar panels, it is apparent that lower voltages arise from lower wavelengths.
