Chain reaction

Use one of the following as the title of your piece. While they're all physics terms, you don't need to know physics. Use the images and ideas they spark for you.
  • Potential Difference
  • Chain Reaction
  • Manipulated Variable
  • Equivalent Resistance
  • Boiling Point
  • Spark Chamber
  • Quantum Mechanic
  • Destructive Interference
  • Inverse Relationship
  • Incoherent Light

May 11, 1918 is the birthdate of Richard Feynman, American physicist and gave me a reason to use physics terms as a writing prompt. He was a popularizer of physics -- his writing is clear and often amusing -- and introduced the idea of nanotechnology. "He was regarded as an eccentric and free spirit. He studied Maya hieroglyphs, was a prankster, juggler, safecracker, bongo player, and a proud amateur painter."
