Quanta is publishing internal circulation material Fact of the Week (FotW) here on this site!
FotW is a weekly (duh…) newsletter for the club, covering various interesting Physics-related phenomena that cater to the palates of the not-so-pedantic. Maybe you ever wondered how touchscreens work or how some vintage toys (eg. putt-putt boats) retain their charm. You might even want to explore a more complete picture of those theories glossed over only for exams, like explanations for the Snell’s Law or the intricacies of the Refractive Index. The FotW seeks to add a new degree of flexibility and novelty to the idea of “Physics (H1/H2/H3)” that is blasted to us routinely in school today.
We welcome any form of discussion, proofreading or even À la carte suggestions for topics.
Hope you enjoy reading them!
