Clouds: puzzling pieces of climate

To study them, researchers divide them into categories. Thin and wispy clouds are called cirrus clouds. Cotton-puffs, or heaps of cotton-puffs, are cumulus clouds. On a cloudy day, the sky is usually covered by flat, hazy and featureless stratus clouds. Each cloud can be classified as one or a combination of these types of clouds (see diagram below). Clouds are classified into different categories Image adapted from Russell et al. (2007); courtesy of the Institute of Physics.

School experiments at the nanoscale. Dilution and the sense of smell In the following experiment, suitable for ages 8 and above, food colouring is serially diluted, causing the colour and smell to fade gradually.

School experiments at the nanoscale

The colour will fade more quickly that the smell, illustrating that even though our eyes cannot detect the chemical responsible for the colour, it is still present, as verified by the smell. In the same way as we use our eyes to see large things and our nose to smell small things, nanoscientists use special tools to analyse (and manipulate) things at the very small scale: the nanoscale. Atomic force microscopes can feel and move individual atoms, while special surfaces with nanotextures on them can repel water extremely efficiently. Introduction When introducing the activity, the following examples may help to illustrate how small the nanoscale is. Our nails grow 1 nm each second.

Explain that the olfactory bulb of the brain is responsible for interpreting the smells that the nose detects. Materials Procedure Resources. Home. - Página Principal.

How Electric Motors Work

In your house, almost every mechanical movement that you see around you is caused by an AC (alternating current) or DC (direct current) electric motor. A simple motor has six parts: Armature or rotorCommutatorBrushesAxleField magnetDC power supply of some sort By understanding how a motor works you can learn a lot about magnets, electromagnets and electricity in general.

In this article, you will learn what makes electric motors tick. Induction motor action. How does a motor work? Explore. Electromagnetism. As of July 1, 2013 ThinkQuest has been discontinued.


We would like to thank everyone for being a part of the ThinkQuest global community: Students - For your limitless creativity and innovation, which inspires us all. Teachers - For your passion in guiding students on their quest. Partners - For your unwavering support and evangelism. Parents - For supporting the use of technology not only as an instrument of learning, but as a means of creating knowledge. We encourage everyone to continue to “Think, Create and Collaborate,” unleashing the power of technology to teach, share, and inspire. Best wishes, The Oracle Education Foundation.
