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.

    Black Holes Research and Report

    4 star(s)

    Black holes are formed by the gravitational collapse of a star, in which the pressure created by the core of the star becomes insufficient to resist its own gravity. This causes the star to collapse in on itself, known as a supernova.

  2. Investigating the relationship between the mass and time period in a spring-mass system

    instead for 1, which will make reading errors much smaller in comparison with the time of one oscillation (the reaction time delay will be then divided by number of oscillations).

  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.

    OCR Physics B Research Project - The Expanding Universe

    He extrapolated back from this to theorize that the whole universe must have once been small and compact. He called this state the "primeval atom" and it was the origin of the Big Bang Theory. This is not the only possible logical conclusion of the creation of an expanding universe,

  1. Is Space Exploration Worth the Cost?

    Space exploration generates infinitely more wealth than it spends and royalties on NASA patents and licenses currently go directly to the U.S. Treasury, not back to NASA [1]. All of America's human space flight programs currently cost around $7 billion a year [1].

    Thus, error exists as there is a big risk to take the inaccurate data. Suggest improvement to the experiment * Carry out the experiment in the dark back room. * Using pins with the addition of laser bean rather than just pins to locate the position of different color of the light in the spectrum.

  1. Refractive index by tracing light rays

    A vertical protractor was used to check that the line is vertical and the position of the vertical line was marked at P. 3. Beginning with my line of sight near C, I looked into side CD so that the dark line could be seen clearly.
