Convert heat to work

Physics

October 31, 2018

Question

Sir please comment my answer "conversion of heat energy into work".from the lesson thermodynamics.

Anjali - India (28775)

Answer

A common way to convert heat energy into work is in an engine. The gas inside the cylinder is heated and expands, thus moving the piston and creating work.

How can oxygen mix in water?

Chemistry

October 26, 2018

Question

Water is a polar molecule and oxygen is a non polar molecule ..For aquatic animals they have to get oxygen from water with gills ..Then we can say oxygen mixes with water to from a solution ..How does a non polar solvant mixes with a polar solvation? ??

Uday - India (28766)

Answer

Oxygen molecules can actually slip between the network of water molecules into “pockets” that exist in-between H2O molecules. For a complex explanation see: Predicting oxygen solubility in water.

Relationship between magnetic force and electricity

Physics

October 23, 2018

Question

my question is, what is the relationship between magnetic force and electricity?

Abdulrahman - Nigeria (28756)

Answer

See Moving Electrical Charges Create Magnetic Field. It shows that when electrical charges move, they create a magnetic force field. Likewise, a magnetic force can create electricity. See Basics of Electromagnetism.

Food box insulation

Physics

October 16, 2018

Question

My question is about insulation for the firebox on a food cart I'm building. I want to prevent the outsides of the fire box from getting to hot. I want to enclose the insulation , not sure if that is the best way. I am working with food so I cant have particulates floating. I was going to use a ceramics insulater. Also should I paint the inside of the firebox first ? Flat paint or ? Thank you for your consideration.

Bill - USA (28752)

Answer

I'd like to help you, but for the life of me, I haven't been able to find good information on that. Perhaps checking with other fireboxes might give you some insight.

Best wishes on building your firebox.

Instantaneous velocity and acceleration

Physics

October 15, 2018

Question

what is the difference between instantaneous acceleration and instantaneous velocity?

sona mariam - India (28749)

Answer

Instantaneous velocity is the velocity of an object in motion at a specific point in time, as opposed to the average velocity.

Average acceleration is the change in velocity over a period of time. Instantaneous acceleration is the acceleration of an object in motion at a specific point in time.

Difference between vaporization and sublimation

Physics

October 11, 2018

Question

Differentiate between vaporization and sublimation

Kevin - Kenya (28745)

Answer

Vaporization is the process that occurs when a chemical or element is converted from a liquid or a solid to a gas.

When a liquid is converted to a gas, the process is called evaporation or boiling.

When a solid is converted to a gas, the process is called sublimation. This is what happens with dry ice (frozen carbon monoxide gas).

Reducing permanent magnetism

Physics

October 6, 2018

Question

If you have a weak permanent magnet and wind a multi turn coil around it and then pass an electrical current through the coil, can you negate the magnet strength of the magnet?
Will a specific current be required to reduce the magnet strength to exactly zero?

Charlie - New Zealand (28738)

Answer

You can demagnetize a permanent magnet by hitting it with a hammer or heating it to a sufficient temperature. Both cases disrupt the alignment of the atoms.

The problem with using a coil is that the atoms can be realigned into a different direction, thus still maintaining the magnetism. The only way to reduce the strength of the magnet is to get some or all of the atoms in random orientation.

Suggested correction

Religion

October 2, 2018

Question

please correct the phrase "The First Truth is that all life is suffering, pain, and misery."
you go on to correctly state "suffering exists" which is more accurate. please correct your initial sentence to be "The First Truth is that suffering, pain, and misery exist." all of life is not suffering. i think it's safe to say that unless a person is tortured from birth, almost every human has moments of joy and happiness. your incorrect sentence is the first search result that pops up in google when using search term "causes of suffering in buddhism" so please be responsible and state the teachings accurately

Edward - USA (28732)

Answer

Thank you for pointing that out. I corrected the phrase and tried to get the right wording in the Four Noble Truths article.
