Solution to Thermostat Wars

Solution by which the office workers can simultaneously optimize the productivity and energy consumption

SCOPE OF METEOROLOGY

Meteorology is a branch of science in which we study about the atmospheric sciences and weather forecasting.

Transpiration In Plants

Life processes in plants are a complex, highly developed and perfectly coordinated set of progressions by which the plants grows, absorbs nutrients, prepares food materials and reproduces.

Temperature and its Measurement

When you touch tea, you find that it’s hot. Similarly, when you touch ice, you find that it’s cold. But, how do you find out how hot or cold a substance is? The physical quantity that tells us how hot or cold a substance is, is known as Temperature. Temperature can be defined as-

LE CHATELIER’S PRINCIPLE – EXPLAINATION WITH EXAMPLES

In the field of chemistry, Le Chatelier’s principle is also known as the Equilibrium Law. It is helpful in predicting the effect of a change in conditions on the chemical equilibrium. This principle was named after Henry Louis Le Chatelier and Karl Ferdinand Braun.

HISTORY AND THE CONCEPTS BEHIND ELECTROCHEMISTRY

Electrochemistry is the study of the chemical processes that result in the movement of electrons. The movement of electrons is known as electricity which gets generated by movements of the electrons from one element to another element. It is known as an oxidation-reduction reaction.

NASA To Send A Mission To The Sun

In July 2018, NASA will boldly go where no spacecraft has ever gone before! In a mission, daring as hell, NASA plans to send a probe that will almost touch the burning ball of fire that is our Sun. The mission promises to be one of mankind’s biggest achievements in the history of space exploration. … Continue reading “NASA To Send A Mission To The Sun”

Water- A Universal Solvent

Water has the ability to dissolve a large number of substances, e.g. sugar, salts etc. Water also dissolves a large number of gases including ammonia, hydrogen chloride etc. Hence, water dissolves almost every common substance and is therefore called a ‘universal solvent’.

Renewable Energy- The Way To The Future

Global warming is the wolf at our door, huffing and puffing and threatening to bring our houses down. According to research by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), the average global temperature on Earth has increased by about 0.8° Celsius (1.4° Fahrenheit) since 1880, with two-thirds of the warming occurring since 1975.

THERMODYNAMICS

Thermodynamics is the branch of science which deals with the relationship of heat with the other forms of energy it basically defines the conversion of thermal energy into other forms of energy and its effect on matter. The behaviour of the quantities of thermodynamics deal is ruled by the four laws of thermodynamics.

TYPES AND USAGE OF VOLTMETER

How does electricity flow in a conductor? It is because of the potential difference across the conductor. How is this potential difference measured? It is measured with a device called voltmeter.

WHAT ARE THE PRINCIPLES BEHIND THERMAL EQUILIBRIUM?

Two physical systems are said to be in thermal equilibrium if there is no exchange of heat between them while being connected to each other by a path which is permeable to heat. Thermal equilibrium follows by the zeroth law of thermodynamics. If the temperature within the system is temporarily and spatially uniform, then the system is said to be in a state of thermal equilibrium.
