My Blog

I blog about topics that interest me in Physics, technologies I'm using in software development, ideas I have and just about anything else.

Stay awhile and listen!

A Brief Post

Welcome back to another post about the Maxwell Relations. This will be a brief post where I will present a very useful mnemonic for remembering the Maxwell Relations that certainly proved quite helpful during my studies of thermodynamics.

This post follows directly (but will be much less mathematical) from Read more

Welcome to a new series!

Over the past few weeks, I developed an interest in studying digital circuits, and so I thought it would be interesting to write about this topic while learning about it. I first came across digital circuits, in the context of computing science, in a systems course in first year Computing at university. We covered very simple topics and didn't really drill...

Welcome back to Waves!

I've not put up a post about waves in a while, but I'm back to writing and have a few more posts in this series planned for the next few weeks! If you're new to the series, feel free to start at Waves I, which discusses the wave equation.

This part will not be following on directly from Read more

What is WWDC?

WWDC is Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference. It's an annual event that brings together Apple Developers from all over the world.

It's where all the new Apple software gets announced every year, and that's, of course, a very exciting time!

In this post, I'll cover everything announced during the keynote presentation,... Read more

Intro and Welcome back to the physics blog!

It has been a good bit of time since I posted the prelude article to this, so it's about time I write this! Welcome back!!

In this blog, I will be deriving Maxwell's relations of thermodynamic potentials. These are a set of relations which are useful because they allow us to change certain quantities, which are often hard to... Read more

Blog Update

It's been quite a while since I posted anything new on the blog, so I thought a brief update is in order as I usually tend to do when I haven't written in a while.

Sadly, the blog was abruptly stopped just after an article that was meant to be a prelude to another. It was about exact differentials and the... Read more

Something new!

I had gotten a bit burned out after writing a few posts just about wave physics, so I thought I'd start exploring and writing about something else.

This post and the next one are inspired (and really sourced) directly from what I'm currently studying in my third year university physics course. As usual, I will be giving my take on things and explaining... Read more

In this brief part of the waves series, we will be defining the concept of impedance of a string. Impedance is an important concept in many physical systems, as it will usually impact how much energy you are able to transmit across certain boundaries. Quite often in physics (and other fields), we're trying to solve problems where we need to do some sort of... Read more

Break from Physics

After four consecutive posts about waves, I thought it would nice to write this post as a chill, relaxing break from physics. About two weeks ago, I attended Global Game Jam 2018 with some of my pals, during which we worked to build a game from scratch in 48 hours. In this post, I will be describing my experience and what I learned during the... Read more


In transmission systems, we are often interested in the amount of power that we can transmit given particular conditions. So it would be helpful to derive an expression for the power in terms of the physical conditions of your system. In our case, we will be continuing on our wave on a string discussion, where the physical properties are the tension, $T$, the linear density... Read more

Wave Energy

This post carries on from the discussion in the previous two: Waves I and Waves II. It's recommended to have a look at those if you haven't already.

Any wave on a string (and any in general) will transport energy. As in all physical situations, we can... Read more

Welcome back

This will be a very brief post, continiuing directly from the previous one, where I will be showing that the speed of waves propagating on a string is given by the relation:


In the the last post, we showed that the wave... Read more

A new series!

Welcome to the first part of a new series about the physics of waves I'm starting. In my post about blog plans for 2018, I mentioned that I want to start writing about physics topics in a more mathematically rigorous manner. This is the start of... Read more


I came across this issue fairly recently. For a particular feature of my app, The Standard Model, I have to present a modal controller which would start a process that consists of multiple steps, such as create and customise a particle. On iOS,... Read more


In this guide, I will show you how I would do proper dismissable modal screens using the React Navigation system for React Native.

I will assume you are somewhat familiar with using React Native to build native iOS and Android apps and know how to start a React Native project, make simple components and run... Read more

Welcome back to the Blog!

🎉Happy New Year🎉 (it's the 9th of January, I don't know if it's too late for this)!

This is just a very short blog post to give a quick update to what I've been up to so far. I didn't blog very much (at all) during the second half of 2017, mainly because third year of university is proving more time-demanding than previous... Read more


This will be a much needed break from the relatively intense physics blog posts from before. In this article, I will simply be writing about myself! Specifically, I will be telling you about how I came to start programming and what inspired me to do so. I'm also hoping this will be a much shorter blog post than before so without further ado, let's get started!

... Read more

Let's go on!

In the first part of this series, I introduced the Standard Model and gave a brief introduction about fermions, which are the particles that make up everything we can see, and bosons, which are the particles that mediate the fundamantal forces between these particles.

In most early particle physics... Read more

Why is this a prelude?

I was in the final stages of writing a blog post about particle interactions and Feynman Diagrams when I decided to pause for a bit and write this instead. I had structured that article such that I present the fundamental interactions described by the Standard Model in detail and then I would give an introduction to Feynman diagrams and provide... Read more

Why am I posting this?

I have recieved some brilliant constructive feedback about my previous article, Observers affecting reality? The Double Slit Experiment, and since it has been pointed out that I have misinterpreted some of the results from performing variations of the... Read more


The modern double slit experiment demonstrates one of the weirdest, and perhaps fundamentally the only weird, phenomenon about quantum mechanics. Do observers affect reality? Are particles "conscious" of what's happening around them? In this article, I'll be exploring these concepts, starting off by talking about waves, Young's original double slit experiment...

What's this about?

The last two articles I've written for the blog were part of the Particle Physics series. While this article relates to more general physics, we will still discuss conservation laws related to the Standard Model by the end. So if you are interested in particle physics, I hope you'll find this a good... Read more

Where were we?

In part 1 of this series, I introduced the Standard Model and the four fundamental forces that govern our universe on a quantum scale. You may recall the four fundamental forces to be:


I have been an enthusiast of particle physics ever since my first encounter with the Standard Model of Particle Physics about 4 years ago. I was simply completely charmed by the way it explained the underlying reasons of common physical phenomena that I studied during my time in school. In this blog post, I am hoping to try to convey to you why I'm so fascinated by... Read more
