    in physics that can be basically implies that space and time are one in the same. This is absolutely counterintuitive to classical physics which has the two as completely different entities. Relativity can be separated into two basic concepts: Special and General Relativity. Within Relativity the fundamental concept above all else is that space and time are intertwined with each other in the universe as a fabric called space-time. Simply put, Special Relativity deals with the laws of Physics when

    objects (livescience). Energy can come in different forms. The two most common different forms are potential and kinetic energy. Kinetic energy is the energy of motion, some examples of that include downhill motion of a roller coaster cart, rolling a bowling ball, and the motion of a bike. Kinetic energy has two other types of kinetic energy, thermal/heat energy and sound waves. Thermal and heat energy is energy that comes from heat when particles

    important?” Well, hooking the bowling ball is a technique where the bowling ball turns from its path down the lane. When the hook procedure gets executed correctly, it allows the ball a better angle of entry into your target, also identified as the pocket. When the ball enters the pocket at a different degree, as opposed to straight on, the ball hits the pins with more force, causing better pin carry. There are a few steps you can exercise to improve your skills at hooking a bowling ball. Although it can
