188. Quotations In Physics
Gathered by the Salt Lake Community College physics Department.
Quotations in Physics
Learning is ever in the freshness of its youth, even for the old.
All things will be in everything; nor is it possible for them to be apart, but all things have a portion of everything.
We are all inclined to direct our inquiry not by the matter itself, but by the views of our opponents; and, even when interrogating oneself, one pushes the inquiry only to the point at which one can no longer find objections.
St. Augustine:
If you do not ask me what is time, I know it; when you ask me, I cannot tell it.
Francis Bacon
Let every student of nature take this as his rule that whatever the mind seizes upon with particular satisfaction is to be held in suspicion.
John Ball: The idea that we shall be welcomed as new members into the galactic community is as unlikely as the idea that the oyster will be welcomed as a new member into the human community. We're probably not even edible. John Berrill: Everything that you could possibly imagine, you will find that nature has been there before you. Jean Bodin, 16th Century political philosopher:

Today was the first class of the new semester. And this year, again, is my turn to teach String Theory. This year I decided to give a slightly extended version of my usual introductory lecture, explaining why one might want to study quantum gravity and, if so, why String Theory is the only plausible vehicle for studying it.

A new twist on power walking
"In an unprecedented breakthrough in the development of portable and renewable human-driven energy sources, an MBL (Marine Biological Laboratory) biomechanics expert who studies how muscle moves skeletons in fish and frogs has invented a backpack that gives new meaning to the term power walking. In a paper published in the September 9 issue of Science, Lawrence C. Rome, a University of Pennsylvania biology professor who spends his summers conducting research at the MBL, and three colleagues describe the mechanics of, and physics behind, the Suspended-load Backpack, a piece of gear that will one day enable field scientists, hikers, explorers, soldiers, and disaster workers to convert mechanical energy generated by walking with a heavy load on their backs into electricity.

Advances in tiny magnetic microchips pave the way for smaller, cheaper and disposable computers
A team of researchers from Durham University, Imperial College London and University of Sheffield have created a basic computer using magnetic microchips rather than semiconductor electronics, offering a potentially cheaper and simpler way of computing for the future which could be put to new and useful purposes. This research, published in the prestigious international journal Science , follows the team’s groundbreaking first step in 2002 at Durham, when they managed to create a basic computer operation or 'logic gate' using a magnetic microchip.

197. Philosophical Foundations Of Physics
Positivist view of physics, which had influenced the Copenhagen Interpretation of the Quantum mechanics (CI).
Rudolph Carnap (1966)
Philosophical Foundations of Physics
Chapter 23: Theories and Nonobservables
Source Philosophical Foundations of Physics (1966) publ. Basic Books Inc. Chapters 23 to 26 reproduced here. ONE OF THE most important distinctions between two types of laws in science is the distinction between what may be called (there is no generally accepted terminology for them) empirical laws and theoretical laws. Empirical laws are laws that can be confirmed directly by empirical observations. The term "observable" is often used for any phenomenon that can be directly observed, so it can be said that empirical laws are laws about observable. A philosopher might object that the intensity of an electric current is not really observed. Only a pointer position was observed. An ammeter was attached to the circuit and it was noted that the pointer pointed to a mark labelled 5.3. Certainly the current's intensity was not observed. It was inferred from what was observed. The physicist would reply that this was true enough, but the inference was not very complicated. The procedure of measurement is so simple, so well established, that it could not be doubted that the ammeter would give an accurate measurement of current intensity. Therefore, it is included among what are called observables. Empirical laws, in my terminology, are laws containing terms either directly observable by the senses or measurable by relatively simple techniques. Sometimes such laws are called empirical generalisations, as a reminder that they have been obtained by generalising results found by observations and measurements. They include not only simple qualitative laws (such as, "All ravens are black") but also quantitative laws that arise from simple measurements. The laws relating pressure, volume, and temperature of gases are of this type. Ohm's law, connecting the electric potential difference, resistance, and intensity of current, is another familiar example. The scientist makes repeated measurements, finds certain regularities, and expresses them in a law. These are the empirical laws. As indicated in earlier chapters, they are used for explaining observed facts and for predicting future observable events.
