Unit of force
November 3, 2019
What is name of unit used to measure force
paul - USA (29252)
The unit of force is the Newton, which equals 1 kg-m/s^2. For small objects, the Dyne can be used. 1 dyne = 1 g-cm/s^2.
I hope that helps.
Examples of pulse waves
October 22, 2019
Examples of pulse wave
Ibitoye - Nigeria (29231)
Some examples of pulse waves include thunder, explosions, and a flash of light. However, realize that all pulse waves can consist of smaller wavelets.
Mass and movement
October 22, 2019
Why is mass not dependent on how object move
Pam - Canada (29233)
Friction is usually greater when the mass or weight of an object in greater.
See the section on Friction for more explanations.
Wants to pass a tough class
October 21, 2019
I need help! I am 68-years-old and for some unknown reason decide to go back to the university and a Post-Master’s degree in Geriatrics and one of the courses is Advance Practice Pharmacotherapeutics. I am struggling - there is so much material and very difficult. I need an 80 yo pass the course and at te moment I have a 75.2 average. How can I better study and retain the material? Please help!
Marlene - USA (29229)
Congratulations on going back to school and seeking an advanced degree, especially in something like Advance Practice Pharmacotherapeutics. It can be tough for young students as well as those who are older like yourself.
It is good that you are looking around for some help in getting through the class.
Certainly, you need to take notes in class and to organize your work and time. Setting aside a certain amount of time to study with no interruptions can help.
Also not that teachers of give hints about what is important and will be in the tests.
If you can, try to get some pointers from your professor about things you are having trouble understanding. Perhaps seek a mentor or some assistance.
Showing that you really want to do well in the class can help.
Best wishes for success in learning the material and in getting a passing grade in this class.
Sound of sea is louder at night
October 8, 2019
Why sound of sea is louder at night than day time???
Nahida - Pakistan (29214)
The loudness or amplitude of sound increases with a reduction in temperature. The air above the sea is cooler at night and thus seems louder.
See Sound Seems Amplified Over Water for an explanation.
Affect of force
October 5, 2019
If we force the object it will change its shape,size or motion
Zuhair - India (29209)
If you apply a force on an object, you can accelerate the object. But it is also possible for the force to change the shape of an object, such as when you push on a soft object. A force applied in all direction on an object can compress it and change its size.
Hope you get an "A"
October 4, 2019
WOw, I hope this throws my teacher off. I'm using this as an essay subject.
Najai - USA (29208)
I hope you get an "A" in your essay.
Doctors could identify typhoid fever
October 3, 2019
I've read that doctors could identify typhoid fever by a patient odor strongly resembling that of fresh-baked bread. Typhus victims, on the other hand, have breath with a "peculiar musty odor," according to an old encyclopedia I have.
Paula - USA (29206)
Thanks for the information. It is a shame that the old ways of diagnosis have gone by the wayside.
Charge a rod through electrostatic induction
September 14, 2019
How would you charge a rod through electrostatic induction?
Ugochukwu - Nigeria (29177)
If you placed a nonconducting object such as a plastic rod or sphere that has charges on its surface near a metal or conducting object--such as a metal rod--your can induce electrical charges in the rod. Often this effect lasts for a short time, since the charges may be drained off.
Role of moons in theory
September 9, 2019
1 how would the moon plays role in the given theory?
2 what would change in the theory if e considered 9 planets?
Or change to 12 planets?>
majid - India (29165)
The Solar System model of an atom looks at electrons moving around the nucleus of the atom. However, in most solar systems, many planets also have one or more moons revolving around the planet. This presents a problem with this model, since electrons are primary particles that cannot be subdivided.
Also, according to Quantum Mechanics, the sub-atomic particles can be viewed as wave-forms.
Thus, this model is simply convenient way of looking at the Solar System.
Using hard wired chandelier with 240 VAC
August 21, 2019
I have a ‘hard wired’ chandelier that says 120V 60Hz AC Only. Can this be used in Kenya where it is 240V 50Hz AC? Does it being hard wired makes a difference?
Sam - USA (29156)
You could use a AC power converter to reduce the voltage to the chandelier, but it probably be more work than it is worth it, especially since the converter would have to be between the source and the chandelier.
The difference in frequency would not be an issue, but 240 VAC input would cause problems.
Comments on theory
August 19, 2019
Actually you're theory is correct because all the things scientists found yet is just a theory.
All we have know till are based on hypothetical concepts. And it is true that human always contradict himself and creates a new theory.
Well if I say what if....
-Solar system = atom
-Electron orbits in elliptical orbit so as planets
-galaxy is just a big chain of atoms
-cosmic web are bonded big chain of atom
-and universe is just a molecule
What if things be like this.
So actually we can say that the deeper we look the bigger we see
Yug - India (29152)
Thanks for your comments and insight.
Best wishes in your studies.
August 19, 2019
This theory of a solar system to be an atom can be true. Because we know that whatever scientists found yet are just theories based on hypothetical concepts and experiment. And it's is a fact that we makes theories and contradict ourselves and then again creates a new theory.
But what if it is true, what if
*Solar system be an atom
*Planets be electons revolving elliptically around sun (nucleus)
*Also sun has quiet very much mass and also creates a big depression on space time facbric.
*And galaxy are bonded atoms
*Cosmic web are chain of bonds of different atoms
*And finally universe and a molecule.
This thing clear one fact that as we look deeper we see things gets bigger.
And also as time is relative....
And we know that because of Heisenberg uncertainty principle that electron have a very movement or velocity.....but if we compare it to solar system it is very slow....
It maybe the cause of relatively of time.
And there are many more theories that can be true for proving that an atom is just solar system....
So as we go beyond universe we finds that there is another universe cause our as being one of those parallel universe.....!!!!!
And actually there is no end of anything we seen yet....!!!!
Yug - India (29155)
The theory and concept has many implications, as you observed. It can be an interesting study.
Comparing the earth to an atom
August 16, 2019
Just stumbled across this page tonight while googling "comparing the earth to an atom" ...etc. stuff that I've had on my mind for some time now (years!) And I just want to say, wow. I mean.. I'm just getting started, but, this is awesome.
Thank you for creating this website.
Desa - USA (29148)
Yes, it is quite an interesting analogy. I'm glad you enjoyed the material and found it useful.
Best wishes for success in your studies.
Moving the magnetic field
August 16, 2019
I'm a tutor. Discussing electricity with students. This came up. If you move the field around the coil, instead of the coil moving, would that generate a current? Thank you!
james - USA (29151)
The first illustration in Generating Electrical Current shows a wire moving through a magnetic field. You could easily move the magnets and keep the wire stationary for the same effect.
