One of the most popular content in Enem (Brazilians SAT’s), in the physics test, is electricity. More specifically, in the last 5 years, approximately 20% of the issues were somehow related to Ohm’s laws. This shows, considering that Enem charges a lot of everyday physics, the importance of this content not only for the classroom, […]

Experimental physics laboratory: how to assemble it?

20/02/17| Experimental physicsUncategorized

When a teacher or educational institution decides to assemble an experimental physics laboratory, soon there are several doubts about the structure, the materials needed and how this space should be organized. Therefore, we have separated some suggestions for structuring a laboratory. Physical structure To assemble an experimental laboratory, the environment must have a space of […]

This is, theoretically, the lowest temperature in the universe. Once in this temperature, the molecules of a body would stop moving and the entropy would reach its minimum value. The notion of a “minimum temperature” in the universe was first considered by the scientist Robert Boyle in the 15th century. In the 16th century, the […]
