Determining the Speed of Light
Determining the Speed of Light
When measuring a speed, the most common way to calculate it is by recording how far something went and the time it took to go that far. In the case of light, this is very difficult. One could conceivably shine a light over a vast distance and have someone else record when they see the light, but this would be difficult even at large distances. The person recording when they see it will need to have terrific reflexes to accurately measure a correct time as the time will be very short. A better method involves the use of a quickly rotating mirror and a beam of light. By aiming a beam of light o the rotating mirror, then reflecting it o a second stationary mirror back into the rotating mirror, calculations can be made on the speed of light. After first hitting the rotating mirror, the mirror will rotate very slightly in the time it takes the beam of light to return and will reflect back to a different position from where it came from. By measuring the displacement of the round trip, a measurement of the speed of light can be made.

A New Definition of Pressure Based on Kinetic Theory Derivations
A New Definition of Pressure Based on Kinetic Theory Derivations
Typical derivations of kinetic theory equations often exchange the contact time of the particle on a wall with the period of the particle's motion between walls. In this paper we redefine pressure as time-dependent in order to solve this issue and show that this definition makes much more intuitive and theoretical sense than our old definition of pressure.

FSU-MATH2400-Project2
FSU-MATH2400-Project2
This is a project for Calculus 2 students at Fitchburg State University. This project walks students through two examples of using definite integrals to determine the volume of objects: a bundt cake serves as the solid of revolution and the students build a structure from play dough that is not a solid of revolution.
