Origins of Physics and its application in various fields

Physics is one of the oldest branch of science. The basic principles of physics explain almost all the natural phenomenons that we come across everyday. The basic principles have also been used in chemistry and other branches of science. Physics is one of the primary pillars on which the whole framework of science stands. Without Physics its impossible to explain most important phenomenons in the universe. This article provides an in depth valuation on the subject of Physics.

How to measure the AC source frequency using sonometer and electromagnet

In this project, I explain how to measure the AC mains frequency using sonometer and electromagnet in the lab. Basically the frequency f of a stretched string depends upon the length of the string l, the tension T, and the mass per unit length m. Defined by relation f=1/2l v(T/m). The wire is made to vibrate by passing AC current of unknown frequency and when frequency of stretched string is in resonance with AC source frequency then the frequency of AC mains n is equal to the frequency f of wire.
