      What Causes Optical Illusions?

      In simple terms, an optical illusion is caused by the structure of both the eye and brain and how they work together. Because of the anatomical make up of the eye and the complexity of the way images of transmitted from the eye to the brain, optical illusions are not as rare as one might

    • Zettabyte

      Zettabyte

      A zettabyte describes a unit of data or information that is equal to 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes. The term is equal to a billion terabytes and the symbol ZB represents it. Zebibyte (ZiB) describes a measurement of data using the power of 1024. A single zettabyte is equivalent to 1,024 exabytes and is used prior to the

    • Types of Nuclear Fuel

      Types of Nuclear Fuel

      The different nuclear processes will use different types of fuel. In general terms: Fission reactions will use fissile heavy elements Fusion will use fusible light elements The convection point is iron. Elements heavier that iron will have higher mass than its parts and yield energy when they break apart. Lighter elements that iron will have

    • What is Flocculation?

      What is Flocculation?

      Flocculation is when microscopic particles bind together to form larger particles in liquids. It occurs naturally or artificially in water as well as other solutions. Flocculation is used in applications such as water purification, sewage treatment, cheese production, and brewing. It is also used in surface and physical chemistry, biology, and civil engineering. The term

    • How Does a Segway Work?

      How Does a Segway Work?

      A Segway is a vertical, mobile vehicle that is able to carry a single person between distances. While a bicycle consists of two wheels and a horizontal frame, a Segway consists of two or four wheels and a vertical frame that balances atop these wheels to steady the rider. Segways run on purely electrical energy

    • Nanotubes

      Nanotubes

      A nanotube is a cylinder made up of atomic particles and whose diameter is around one to a few billionths of a meter (or nanometers). They can be made from a variety of materials. Nanotubes are believed to be stronger than steel, but more flexible than plastic, and they also exhibit excellent thermal and electrical conductivity. These

    • Law of Universal Gravitation

      Law of Universal Gravitation

      The law of universal gravitation gives the attraction force between two objects due to gravity. Definition: For any pair of objects, they attract each other with a force that is directly proportional to the product of the masses of the objects and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers of mass.

    • What is Acesulfame Potassium?

      What is Acesulfame Potassium?

      Acesulfame potassium (Acesulfame K or Ace K, where “K” is the elemental symbol for potassium) is commonly used as an artificial sweetener or flavor enhancer. It is used in low calorie food products as it replaces sugar and other natural sweeteners that commonly add large amounts of calories. Acesulfame potassium’s trade names include “Sunett” and

    • What is an Ultrasonic Pest Repeller?

      What is an Ultrasonic Pest Repeller?

      An Ultrasonic Pest Repeller is an electronic device that uses ultrasonic sound waves to repel insects, rodents, and other pests. Though humans are incapable of hearing these sounds, many animals, insects, and rodents can. There is much debate concerning the ultrasonic pest repeller’s ability to actually get rid of pests. While some people claim that

      Fresnel Lens Projector

      A projector is able to accomplish a projection with the help of a combination of lenses along with the other technical things. A Fresnel lens projector is one which has different Fresnel lenses placed in the projector. Fresnel Lens Fresnel lens was invented by a French physicist, Augustin-Jean Fresnel. These lenses have a large aperture
