Sitting on the terrace on a warm summer evening and looking up at the sky, we often wonder where an airplane is going to fly. Based on the observed flight direction, we can make assumptions, but rarely check if they are really correct. The app Flightradar24 offers the possibility to confirm our assumptions. For this purpose, you just need to target...

If different musical instruments produce a sound of the same frequency and amplitude, we can easily distinguish the instruments from each other and with little prior experience even name them correctly (Fig. 1). This is possible because each musical instrument has its own characteristic sound, which is called timbre. But what gives musical instrume...

Hätten wir Antennen statt Ohren, so wären wir von einem allgegenwärtigen und immerwährenden Konzert im VLF-Bereich (Very Low Frequency) umgeben, mit „Instrumenten“, die von der globalen Gewitteraktivität sowie vom Sonnenwind gespielt werden und von deren Signalen aller Art: z. B. Knistern (Sferics), eine Art Vogelgezwitscher (Tweeks) oder in der Frequenz abfallende Pfeiftöne (Whistlers). Im Projekt wurde untersucht, wie diese Höreindrücke empfangen und zur Abschätzung geo/astro-physikalischer Parameter genutzt werden können (u. a. die Ionosphärenhöhe, die Länge der Magnetfeldlinien in unseren Breiten oder die Elektronendichte im erdnahen Weltraum).

Cell phones – actually pocket size computers – have become essential tools in physics classrooms. Since nearly all students posses such a well equipped device, it seems to suggest itself, to explore every-day physics outside the classroom. A couple of studies in the last few years showed that using smartphones as experimental tools in classrooms could foster conceptual learning. Recently we conduct pilot studies in Highschools and in introductory physics courses in universities as well where students do some smartphone-based experiments as homework.
