Science, Optics and You Online Activities for Students The following activities are provided to help you investigate light, optics, and color. They were written by educators with input from scientists, researchers, students, and teachers. Class 10 - ICSE Board - Mathematics, Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology), Social Studies (Geography, History, Civics & Economics) - Study Material, Animated Videos, Summary, Questions and Answers, Wiki, References - LearnNext Online LearnNext Lesson Video In 1827, a German physicist Georg Simon Ohm (1787–1854) formulated the relationship between the electric current I, flowing in a metallic wire and the potential difference across its terminals. Ohm’s law states that at a constant temperature, current I through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential difference or voltage, V, across the two points. Thus, the ratio V: I is constant, and is called the resistance, R, of the conductor.

Suprathreshold stochastic resonance Suprathreshold Stochastic Resonance (SSR) is a variant of stochastic resonance (SR) that occurs for a specific set of conditions that are somewhat different from those of stochastic resonance. Like stochastic resonance, suprathreshold stochastic resonance describes the observation of noise enhanced behaviour in signal processing systems. Unlike conventional stochastic resonance, suprathreshold stochastic resonance does not disappear when the signal is no longer "subthreshold." Introduction Suprathreshold stochastic resonance was first demonstrated in arrays of identical threshold devices in 2000. This initial work (Stocks 2000) assumed an aperiodic random input signal (meaning that suprathreshold stochastic resonance is a form of aperiodic stochastic resonance), and stochastic resonance was shown to occur in the Shannon average mutual information between the input and output of the array.
