Weird Science: 40 Strange-Acting, Bizarre-Looking, and by Jim Wiese

By Jim Wiese

Observe the unusual technology in the back of the ickiest, wackiest, most original issues ever to exist!

Would you're keen on to make your individual slime, become aware of how lava lamps paintings, or find out how fabrics decompose?
Have you ever heard approximately ball lightning or the Aurora Borealis at the information and questioned what the reporter was once speaking approximately?
Are you searching for nice principles to your subsequent technological know-how reasonable project?

If you responded "yes" to any of those questions, then bizarre technology is for you! From banana slugs and dry ice to optical illusions and time commute, you'll examine essentially the most extraordinary clinical oddities on the earth. Dozens of fun-packed actions assist you see for your self how quicksand fairly works, why our ft occasionally get pungent, how malicious program holes and black holes are shaped, why bugs can stroll on water, and lots more and plenty extra. You'll even see how one can flip those awesome actions into technology initiatives! every one scan is secure and straightforward to do, and all you wish is daily stuff from round the condominium. So prepare to take an odd, creepy, and infrequently even gross trip via bizarre technological know-how!

Theories and Experiments in High-Energy Physics by H. L. Lynch, J. E. Augustin, A. M. Boyarski (auth.), Arnold

By H. L. Lynch, J. E. Augustin, A. M. Boyarski (auth.), Arnold Perlmutter, Susan M. Widmayer (eds.)

This quantity features a component of the shows given on the consultation on excessive power Physics and Astro­ physics of Orbis Scientiae II, held on the heart for Theoretical experiences, collage of Miami, from January 20 via January 24, 1975. This, moment within the new sequence of conferences held on the CTS, strove to enforce the targets professed within the association of Orbis Scientiae in 1974, particularly to motivate scientists in different disciplines to interchange perspectives, not just with colleagues who percentage related examine pursuits, but in addition to acquaint scientists in different fields with the major rules and present ends up in every one quarter repre­ sented. hence, an attempt has been made to incorporate papers in every one consultation that debate primary concerns in a manner that's understandable to scientists who're experts in different parts. additionally according to the philosophy of Orbis Scientiae, the key issues every year are to be diversified, with the invariant being the inclusion of advancements in basic physics. The discussions of the present state-of-the-art in excessive power physics represented during this quantity contain new theories and experiments within the box. v PREFACE detailed gratitude is because of the next for his or her contributions as organizers and moderators of the ses­ sions on excessive strength physics and astrophysics: Abdus Salam, Jogesh Pati, Karl Strauch, O. W. Greenberg, Sheldon Glashow, George Sudarshan and W. John Cocke. The editors desire to show their appreciation to Mrs. Helga Billings and Mrs.

Experiments in Aerodynamics (General Publication) by Samuel Pierpont Langley

By Samuel Pierpont Langley

Langley first released "Experiments in Aerodynamics" in 1891. This facsimile version is predicated at the moment version released in 1902, as a part of the "Smithsonian Contributions to wisdom" volumes. It studies on Langley's early experiments in what he provisionally referred to as aerodromics. "I have now been engaged because the starting of the yr 1887 in experiments on a longer scale for picking out the potential for, and the stipulations for, transporting within the air a physique whose particular gravity is larger than that of the air, and that i wish to repeat my conviction that the hindrances in its manner should not similar to were inspiration; that they lie extra in such it sounds as if secondary problems as if of guiding the physique in order that it will probably stream within the course wanted, and ascend or descend with protection, than in what might sound to be the first problems because of the nature of the air itself, and that during my opinion the facts for this can be now sufficiently entire to have interaction the intense recognition of engineers to the sensible resolution of those secondary problems, and to the advance of an paintings of mechanical flight with the intention to deliver with it a transformation in lots of of the stipulations of person and nationwide life whose value can infrequently be estimated." AIAA is happy to convey this significant e-book again into print.

Cure of Thermosetting Resins: Modelling and Experiments by J.-W. Vergnaud PhD, J. Bouzon PhD (auth.)

By J.-W. Vergnaud PhD, J. Bouzon PhD (auth.)

The strategy of treatment of thermosets is quite complicated, and strong wisdom of some of the steps and diversified difficulties is important for the person. for example, the subsequent uncomplicated proof characterise the healing of thermosets: 1. within the comparable manner as rubbers, thermosets are quite often polymerised and processed in an easy operation which contains the irreversible transformation of a low molecular weight resin in viscous liquid kingdom right into a good community polymer. the method of therapy is therefore even more vital for thermosets or rubbers than for thermo­ plastics, simply because if whatever is going improper throughout the treatment technique of thermosets, the ultimate items can have undersirable homes and should be of little need or worth, whereas the thermoplastic fabric might be melted back to make a brand new fabric. 2. against this with rubbers, a excessive exothermic treatment response is the point of basic significance within the therapy approach for thermo­ units. This excessive enthalpy of medication linked to a slightly low thermal conductivity can provide upward thrust to an overly excessive tem­ perature that may reason discoloration and degradation of the cloth, and likewise to sizeable temperature gradients. The mat­ erial is hence heterogeneous through the technique of remedy, and those temperature-time histories within the resin could have a few results at the homes of the ultimate fabric. three. in addition, the rise in construction following the aid in time of the remedy cycle necessitates using a better mold temperature.

Experiments in General Chemistry: Featuring MeasureNet (2nd by Bobby Stanton, Lin Zhu, Charles H. Atwood

By Bobby Stanton, Lin Zhu, Charles H. Atwood

Leading edge and self-directed, EXPERIMENTS usually CHEMISTRY: that includes MEASURENET, 2d version prepares scholars for the laboratory atmosphere by means of asking them multi-component questions, construction their wisdom from earlier experiments, and incorporating the leading edge MeasureNet community information assortment approach into the handbook. MeasureNet improves the laboratory adventure by means of requiring smaller quantities of chemical substances for experiments--making the lab more secure and extra environmentally friendly--and vastly expanding precision via its digital information assortment, research, and aid beneficial properties.
