TCNJ Physics Students Present at DFD/APS Meeting

TCNJ Physics Students Present at DFD/APS Meeting

In November Maxwell Pollack and David Pauls presented their research on astrophysical jets at the Division of Fluid Dynamics meeting of the American Physical Society in San Francisco. They worked with Prof. Paul Wiita to compute hydrodynamical models for propagating jets of hot fluid moving at a very large fraction of the speed of light.…Continue Reading

Volleyball Game 2014: Freshman vs. Uppercalssmen

The annual freshman/upperclassmen volleyball match was held on the beautiful morning of September 10th, 2014. The large size of the new crop of physics majors meant that they fielded two teams, while only the best of the more senior students, aided by a couple of faculty members, were brave enough to take them on.  Each of…Continue Reading
