The sun is a significant part of our lives.We benefit from its light and heat every day as it continues its life cycle of turning hydrogen into helium. While it won’t be there forever, we can certainly make use of it for the next few billion years that we have access through collecting all the energy it bombards our planet with and turning it to our uses.

It is a known fact that the smallest unit of matter or of the chemical element is the Atom; However, this was not always the case for all theories originate with an idea. Greek philosopher, Democritus, was the first to provide an atomic theory and therefore give existence to the “atomos,” or the indivisible during the fifth century BC. His vision of the atomic model depicted a void or an empty space where the eternal atom lies; one which could continue to be broken down until it is in fact indivisible.

The analysis of microbes in water is a key aspect of water quality that estimates the number of micro-organisms in water and if needed the type of micro-organisms. These microbes may be pathogenic to human beings.The analysis utilizes water samples from which the concentration of microbes is determined. The microbial analysis thus provides inferences for suitability of the water for consumption or any other use. Continue reading Microbial Analysis of Water
What is electrostatics and how can you have fun with electrostatics? Electrostatics is that area of science dealing with charged particles. You are probably most familiar with electrostatics when you take your clothes out of the dryer and they are all clinging together. Advertisers call that “static cling”. If you live in a climate that has dry winters, then you are familiar with getting that spark when you touch a door knob or kiss a loved one. Continue reading Fun With Electrostatics
In 1687, the british physicist and mathematician Sir Isaac Newton published a book entitled Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica in this book Newton outlined 3 foundational principles that describe moving objects. These principles have been examined and reexamined since 1687 and today we know this series of rules as Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion.
Newton’s 1st Law of Motion: Inertia
An object in motion will stay in motion moving at a consant speed and in a straight line unless a force acts to stop it. Continue reading Physical Science In 500 Words Or Less – Newtons 3 Laws Of Motion
Anyone who knows anything about grant writing for colleges and universities knows that it’s all about the details and complexity of the RFPs (request for proposals). If you fail to follow the universal guidance, or the myriad of rules and regulations – your proposal won’t even get reviewed.
