seminari di fisica a distanza

The cycle of Physics seminars, aimed at high school students, come back through web meetings: at a distance but close in this part of the school year shocked by Coronavirus.

Last programming of the cycle by the Department of Physics of Federico II, the National Institute of Nuclear Physics of Naples and  Città della Scienza according to the note of the MIUR of March 17 which underlines the importance of supporting and continuing to pursue the social and formative task of doing school, but not at school and of doing community.

The meetings that will take place in the last week of this month, freely accessible on the Facebook page of Città della Scienza,, will be divided into two moments. The first part will be dedicated by the speaker to the presentation of the topic under discussion; in the second part he will answer the questions posted by the students, by the participants in the platform “comments”.

From classical physics to relativity, a path between science and art

The transition from classical to relativistic physics is tackled by adding some artistic references alongside the scientific path that show how the world of art has sometimes been inspired by the world of science.

Cosmic rays: messengers of the universe

Each scientific discovery is the result of numerous attempts and errors, and the study of cosmic rays isn’t an exception, as can be appreciated by retracing its history briefly. It is also surprising to verify that they constitute a phenomenon with which we face every day!

There is no escape: the judgments of the Second Principle of Thermodynamics

No physical law provides, or simply contains, the idea that time cannot flow in two ways, or that there may be some phenomenon that is not totally reversible. Yet unfortunately it is not so. Because? Try to do the opposite … if you can!
