How to effectively read and learn from a book?

Book reading has always been considered as an art and ones who excel it, are better learners and ultimately tend to lead their part. In the following article, I shall be outlining some of the tested ideas on reading and understanding books in better way.

Clean Technology – Why it is the time to be Green?

What is the 'Need' of the, "Clean Technology"? Why Not? There is a desperate need to meet the challenges caused by climate change and environmental degradation. In the past, it was the entrepreneurial spirit that contributed most to the innovations with far-reaching benefits. Besides, scientists from outside the industry innovated technologies like steam power, the railways, telegraph, radios and telephone, petroleum, the automobile, computer, internet etc. Yet the role of entrepreneurial innovation in addressing environmental problems has received relatively little…

Touch Screen Systems

A typical touchscreen input system is basically an input device like a mouse or trackpad. If counting as a definition, a touch screen is a computer display screen that is sensitive to human touch, allowing a user to interact with the computer by touching pictures or words on the screen. How? A touchscreen system is made up of a touch sensor, a controller card, and a software driver. WHAT ARE TOUCHSCREENS USED FOR? Touch screens are used with information kiosks,…

Elementary Particle Physics

Particle physics is the study of Particles, from what everything is made of. In this section of physics we study the fundamental particles that make up all of matter, and their mutual interaction. Everything around us is made up of these particles, you may say, made up of fundamental building blocks of nature. So, what are these building blocks? In the early nineteenth century, it was believed that atoms were fundamental; they were thought to be the smallest part of…

Introduction to the Universe

Stars Universe is vast and amazing. There are many millions of trillions of stars in the sky, most of them being bigger than our sun. Stars account for 98% of the matter in a galaxy. The rest of 2% consists of interstellar or galactic gas & dust in a very attenuated form. The normal density of interstellar gas throughout the galaxy is about one tenth of a hydrogen atom per cm³ volume. Stars tend to form groups. Major types of…

HTML Codes for Mathematical Symbols and Signs. A tool for Science bloggers

What is it? HTML codes are very important for bloggers and are must for Science bloggers. With the help of it, they can enhance their blog by decorating the articles. Mathematical signs and symbols are extremely important to post a perfect article. Here is a concise list of signs/symbols general used. Important! Symbol are used by inputing &; . Not that it must start with & and end with ;. Read examples below the list. Symbols HTML Codes that you…

Radioactive Pollution

What is Radioactive Pollution? Radioactive Substances and nuclear radiations (i.e., alpha, beta & gamma-particles) produced during nuclear reactions, affect our environment adversely and thus radioactive pollution is created. Sources of Radioactive Pollution Low level radioactive liquid wastes, radioactive gaseous wastes & dusts are released during nuclear explosions. Effects of Radioactive Pollution I. The radioactive gaseous wastes are injected into the upper layer of atmosphere where, due to cooling they condense to fine-dust particles and thus Radioactive Cloud is formed. This…

Top 5 Chemists Killed or Injured by their Experiments

Karl Scheele Died while testing his discoveries Scheele was a brilliant pharmaceutical chemist who discovered many chemical elements-Oxygen, Molybdenum, Tungsten, Manganese and Chlorine. He also discovered a process very similar to pasteurization. Scheele had the habit of taste testing his discoveries and, fortunately, managed to survive his taste-test of hydrogen cyanide HCN. But alas, his luck was to run out: he died of symptoms strongly resembling mercury poisoning.   Robert Bunsen Blinded himself in one eye Robert Bunsen is probably…

What is Real Analysis?

Real analysis is the branch of Mathematics in which we study the development on the set of real numbers. We reach on real numbers through a series of successive extensions and generalizations starting from the natural numbers. In fact, starting from the set of natural numbers we pass on successively to the set of integers, the set of rational numbers and that of real numbers. Let $ \mathbf {Q}$ be the set of rational numbers. It is well known that…

Entropy and Disorder

In science, we look for patterns to discover nature's laws. What is the pattern common to all spontaneous changes? To find a pattern, it is often best to start with very simple examples, because then the pattern is likely to be more obvious. So let's think about two simple spontaneous changes -- the cooling of a hot metal and the expansion of a gas -- at a molecular level and search for their common feature. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsY4WcQOrfk A hot block of…
