This page has a list of our favorite physics experiments. Physics
is the branch of science that encompasses the study of the properties and
nature of matter and energy. What I think
is so beautiful about physic is that it explains many of the things that we
develop an intuitive understanding of from an early age.
Most people intuitively understand that it is more painful
catching a pitch thrown by a professional baseball pitcher than catching one
thrown by a child. Of course, we intuitively understand that the professional
can throw the ball much harder, so it is travelling much faster and this speed translates
to more force felt by the catcher.
By choosing to learn more about physics, you are embarking on
an exciting journey of understanding more about the world around you. Physics
can be used to explain the behavior of rockets, the nature of laser light, the
color of the sky and so much more.
Get started learning about physics. Pick one of the
experiments below and give it a go!
Top Physics Experiments
Rockets demonstrate some fundamental physics principles. We
know from newtons third law that every action has an equal and opposite reaction
and this experiment will demonstrate that in a fun way.
Learn about light and how we can make a camera without a lens.
Why is the sky blue
Why is the sky blue is a question I think every curious
child will ask at some point? This experiment will help you answer that question.
Water cycle experiments
This experiment helps to solidify an understanding
of the water cycle. The experiment is easy to do and only requires every day
This experiment is a fun and memorable way to learn about
some exciting physics concepts.
This simple electromagnet experiment illustrates a
fundamental aspect of physics. The relationship between magnetism and electricity
is made clear in this experiment.
Egg in a bottle
It's easy to forget that every day we have the weight out all
the air above us pressing down. This experiment will show you what this
pressure can do if we create a vacuum.
With this experiment, you will gain an understanding of the
relationship between density and temperature. If you light a match in a microgravity
environment what happens? This experiment will give you an insight into this
In this fun experiment, we will learn about non-Newtonian
fluids are how they react to sudden impacts.
