  • Paper On Linear Wave Theory

    LINEAR WAVE THEORY Linear wave theory can be defined as first-order, small amplitude gravity wave with a sinusoidal shape. This theory has been developed by Airy in 1845. It is easy to apply and give reasonable approximation of wave characteristic for a wide range of wave parameters. However, in some situations, waves are better described by higher order theories or also referred as finite-amplitude wave theories. Although there are limitations to its application, linear theory is still useful…

  • NASA Space Mission

    For over 55 years, humans have been flying in space. With an understanding of evolution, it has always been assumed that human bodies have adapted to the gravitational force found here on Earth. The space station and the shuttle that most NASA astronauts will stay in orbits 350 km above Earth, with a gravitational pull 90% stronger than it is on the ground (NASA Space Bones). Giancoli describes objects orbiting the Earth as feeling weightless because they are, in essence, free falling towards…
