Physics Flash Animations We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content. This page provides access to those animations which may be of general interest. The animations will appear in a separate window. The animations are sorted by category, and the file size of each animation is included in the listing. SolarWindow - New Energy Technologies Inc New Energy Technologies is developing the first-of-its kind SolarWindow™ technology, which enables see-through windows to generate electricity by ‘spraying’ their glass surfaces with New Energy’s electricity-generating coatings – the subject of forty two (42) patent filings. SolarWindow™ generates clean electricity on see-through glass windows, by making use of the energy of natural sunlight and artificial sources such as fluorescent and LED lighting typically installed in offices, schools, and commercial buildings. Under an exclusive world-wide licensing agreement with the University of South Florida, together with a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy—National Renewable Energy Laboratory, covering forty two (42) patent applications, we currently have several product development goals for our SolarWindow™ technology: How do we generate electricity on see-through glass for commercial application in homes, offices, and commercial buildings?

Futur possible... · People will be fluent in every language. With DARPA and Google racing to perfect instant translation, it won't be long until your cellphone speaks Swahili on your behalf. · Software will predict traffic jams before they occur. Using archived data, roadside sensors, and GPS, IBM has come up with a modeling program that anticipates bumper-to-bumper congestion a full hour before it begins. Better yet, the idea proved successful in early tests—even on the Jersey Turnpike. · Climate-controlled jackets will protect soldiers from extreme heat and cold.

Mod Mosaic Blocks AVE-FAQ - Thermodynamics Atmospheric Vortex Engine 2. Thermodynamics Tips & Lessons > Fragmenting: A Quilt Design from a Single Block I often use fragmenting when designing quilts. The concept of fragmenting a traditional patchwork block is not new. It has been used for centuries with the traditional Lone Star design. In the Lone Star design, each of the diamonds of a traditional eight-pointed star has been broken up into the same number of smaller diamonds. Traditionally, each round of diamonds from the center outwards is the same fabric. I used this same idea to create the quilt, Star Sapphire.

Subsea World News - NOC Scientist Explore Hydrothermal Vents in Caribbean Sea Scientists from the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, aboard the Royal Research Ship James Cook explore the deepest hydrothermal vents yet discovered on the planet, in the Cayman Trough beneath the Caribbean Sea. Back in 2010, researchers from NOC and the University of Southampton discovered what were then believed to be the world’s deepest and hottest volcanic vents. The new team, led by the University’s Dr Jon Copley, returned to the area with high definition cameras and sampling equipment to investigate the vents, named the Beebe Hydrothermal Vent Field, more closely. They have now come across a further set located even deeper at 4,968 metres, or almost three miles beneath the ocean surface. The Mid-Cayman Rise is the deepest known site of volcanic activity, reaching to depths of around 6,000 metres.

6174 (number) 6174 is known as Kaprekar's constant[1][2][3] after the Indian mathematician D. R. Kaprekar. This number is notable for the following property: Take any four-digit number, using at least two different digits. (Leading zeros are allowed.)Arrange the digits in ascending and then in descending order to get two four-digit numbers, adding leading zeros if necessary.Subtract the smaller number from the bigger number.Go back to step 2. rrosion in the Petrochemical Industry Page 290 If corrosion inhibition is used to protect the gas well downhole tubulars, the same system will protect the flow lines if the ...
