Thermocouples Made From Ordinary Copper and Steel Wire

DC current probe meters are certainly not found everywhere but a compass can be used to indicate current flow by making the thermocouple loop into a coil. This coil uses 5 feet of copper wire but the use of 12 gauge keeps the resistance low enough for observable current to flow. The compass needle is most easily deflected when it is perpendicular to the coil axis as shown in the above picture. A piece of tissue paper was placed over the mirror in the compass case to eliminate lighting glare while taking the photographs. A flame held under one junction will cause an easily observable deflection of the compass needle. When a flame is held under the opposite junction, the compass needle will deflect in the opposite direction. The magnetic field of the earth pulls on the compass needle like a spring and makes it somewhat difficult to deflect.

CNC Gears

Gear Wheel Designer software creates a variety of clock gear types & generates the g-code. The units can be metric or imperial, the sequence of operations can be specified, & it will also cut spokes. Three curves are used above & below a gear's base circle to design cycloidal gears. Cycloid. Epicycloid, the shape above the base circle. Hypocycloid, the shape below the base circle.

How to Memorize - Learn to memorize and increase memory

Thanks! Memorizing does not have to be as hard as most people make it. The problem is that most people only know how to memorize by reading the same thing over and over again. You have to learn to memorize. In this post we are going to look at how the brain remembers and then show how to use that knowledge to come up with a method for memorizing verbatim text. In this article we are going to focus on a technique that will let you easily: Memorize a speechMemorize the BibleMemorize linesMemorize Scripture At the end of this article is a Javascript tool that makes it easy to implement this method. Synapses and Neurons and How to Memorize In the simplified model of the brain in this discussion, we’ll be looking at neurons and synapses. When you remember something neurons fire signals down particular synapse pathways to other neurons which in turn fire signals to other neurons. Ressources et projets électroniques. LiquidPiston.
