Physics! Particles! Statistical modelling! Quantum theory! How can non-scientists understand any of it? Well, students from Durham University are here to help you wrap your head around it all – and to our delight, they’re using the power of the Raspberry Pi to do it! At the Royal Society’s Summer Science Exhibition , taking place in London from 4-9 July, the students are presenting a Pi-based experiment demonstrating the importance of statistics in their field of research. Modelling the invisible – Summer Science Exhibition 2017 The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2017 features 22 exhibits of cutting-edge, hands-on UK science , along with special events and talks.
Geeky Gadgets 3D Slash Launches 3D Modelling App For Raspberry Pi Geeky Gadgets Even though there are other 3D modelling applications available for the Raspberry Pi , it is the first time such a powerful and easy-to-use 3D modelling application has been made available for the low-cost computer platform that is used around the world …
Today, a look at a speedy way for students to prototype, test, analyse and deploy sophisticated applications on Raspberry Pi, using industry tools: MathWorks’ MATLAB , a high-level programming environment for visualising and analysing data, computation, mathematical modelling, and algorithm development; and Simulink , which provides a block diagramming environment for modelling and simulating dynamic systems. element14 recently launched a Learn to Program Pack consisting of MATLAB and Simulink Student Suite bundled with their Raspberry Pi 2 starter kit, which gives you a Pi 2, microSD card, power supply and case
Here’s another guest post from Allison Taylor at Wolfram Research. Today we’re looking at how to build simple physics models using the Wolfram Language If you’ve taken any introductory physics course, you’ve learned about Newtonian mechanics—conservation of energy and momentum, friction, harmonic motion, and so on. Idealized, classical motion can be broken down into a series of simple equations based on position, acceleration, and velocity.
