Force is the very representative of energy. It is energy at its best. Before
a force can be applied, there is a need for a present of energy. Though
important, having energy itself does not mean anything. If it is not put to
good use, it is nothing, nothing at all. The most direct way and perhaps
most productive manner would be to convert the energy to a force,
which is able to do work.
Thus we decided that we would do a project on forces, since it is one of
the most direct way anyone can do any thing with their energy. Even
when you lift you finger or blink, you need to generate a force.
It is quite true that there are also lots of other sites on the Internet that
gives scientific explanation of certain stuff. Even though they provide
good information, they do not ring a bell when the information is passed
to some layman. Most of these sites prove to be very helpful for physics
student or perhaps people doing a specific and scientific research.
This is what our site intend to change. We have seen enough of sites
containing facts that are related to the surfers in pure text, or some might
have added tabulated information. This type of explanation or
information relaying method does not benefit people with a general
interest of a physics topic such as forces.
We tried to start a revolution. A revolution that would bring physics
down to anyone who has the basic ability of the English or Spanish
language. We provide access to good graphics, animations, java applets
and other multimedia aspects that would allow anyone to better grasp
difficult or otherwise confusing concept. We believe that such actions
would allow more people to get in touch with physics, especially forces.
This site might be the first hand tutorial for any layman or as a stepping
stone to much more detailed and scientific information.
The most creative part about our project is to totally relate the
application of forces to daily life. Forces are used everyday by billions of
people around the world. You might not have realized how the forces
actually affect their lives and how you could apply forces in a better
manner so as to maximize their effort. You would most likely be interested
to read on since you would be reading something about yourself rather
some sort of experiment that scientists had performed in labs.
Enjoy your stay here. We hope it would be fruitful as well as interesting.
