The science of static electricity - Anuradha Bhagwat. You can see the effects of static electricity everywhere.

The science of static electricity - Anuradha Bhagwat

The effects of static electricity are seen when an insulating material such as plastic, rubber, or wool is involved. Which materials lose electrons readily depends on the inner structure of materials themselves and how tightly the electrons are bound. Physicists have ranked materials by the order in which they lose or gain electrons. This ranking is called the triboelectric series. And what is it with static electricity and human skin? At home and in factories, there are places where you will see thick metal wires connected physically to Earth – these are known as earthing wires or grounding wires.

Cephalopoda is one of the eight Classes in the Phylum Mollusca. The class is divided in two extant subclasses: Nautiloidea (which contain only one species, the nautilus, a basal animal with external shell, tentacles with no suckers and eyes without cornea or lens) and Coleoidea (which contains octopuses, squids and cuttlefishes).

Coleoids first appeared on the fossil record in the Devonian period, about 430 million years ago. Critical Evaluation. Magnitude of Earthquake on Richter Scale. What it means?

Ever wonder why your mom makes you wear two or three layers of clothing when you want to go outside and build a snowman?

Insulation Experiment: Keep Your Body Warm

These clothes are actually great insulators, which mean they're made from materials that keep your body temperature from dropping. In this insulation experiment, you'll learn which fabrics help keep you warm on an icy winter day. Some weather conditions, such as rain, wind, and snow cause our bodies to lose heat. If you don't select the right materials to keep your body warm and toasty, you'll start to shiver from the cold.

Wearing warm, insulating clothes allows you to stay outside even longer, having snowball fights with your friends, creating snow angels, and building igloos to play in. How to Start a Fire Without Matches. Colorful Convection Currents. Fill two bottles with warm water from the tap and the other two bottles with cold water.

Some examples include gamma rays, X-rays, microwaves and radio waves. Watch this clip to learn more about the properties of energy waves, such as wavelengths, and how electromagnetic radiation is being used in airport security to see through people's clothes but not their bodies.

How do your kidneys work? - Emma Bryce

Why are kidneys so important? Visit the National Kidney Foundation and find out more details about hypertension, diabetes and other ways they can become damaged. Click this link and find out how to keep those kidneys healthy. Despite what they may look like from the outside, the kidneys are more than just a pair of little beans. The best way to understand just how complex these organs really are is to visualize what's inside: this series of four diagrams can help you understand how all the bits fit together. Kidneys are truly “magical beans” in your body. How do the lungs work? - Emma Bryce. Catalyst: Hot or Cold - ABC TV Science. Introduction to Brain Structure and Function. How does my brain work?
