  • Conductive Polymers
    508 words
    The movie Flubber was about a "crazy" chemist who had many inventions, some by the way I would like to have. But the main invention was a rubber "thing" that he named Flubber. There were a few scientific terms that he noted during the movie when inventing Flubber which I will describe below. The words in bold are the scientific terms that were noted in the movie. The first term that I noted during the movie was Conductive Polymers. Conductive polymers are almost always organic meaning a large cl...
  • Electrical Energy By Atomic Fission
    1,101 words
    Atomic Energy Atomic Power. Devastation. Destruction. Danger. These are 3 common words that is often misleading and tangled up with atomic power. The 3 "D"s that I just stated make atomic power look cruel. Misleading because in fact atomic energy is very clean and extremely useful. There are, however, many questions tobe answered in atomic energy. Like, for example, how does it work What are its major uses and how did it come about And most importantly, what is the reality of the " Danger" we of...
  • Different Energy Levels Of Hydrogen
    390 words
    Wild Bill's Wild Bohr Quiz Niels Bohr's model of the hydrogen atom, was the primary reason for the understanding of energy levels. Bohr was able to explain the bright line spectrum of hydrogen. Sparked by the recent discovery of the diffraction patterns, scientists believed electrons could be described as waves. Bohr hypothesized that energy is being added to the hydrogen gas in the electricity form, and then leaving the gas in the form of light. He figured the light rays to be quantized, meanin...
  • Process Known As Fission
    425 words
    The Hydrogen Bomb The history and workings of this massive bomb Back in 1905 Albert Einstein published his special theory of relativity. According to this theory the relation between mass and energy is expressed by the equation E = mc squared, which states that a given mass (m) is associated with an amount of energy (E) equal to this mass multiplied by the square of the speed of light (Encarta). So years later in 1939 two German chemists took this idea and applied it to a uranium atom, which wou...
  • 3 For Bose Einstein Condensation
    2,666 words
    Everything in the world around us is made up of particles. These particles can be placed into two categories called bosons and fermions. Bosons are particles that have integer spin values, such as 1, 2, 3 and so on. 3 Examples of bosons are photons, which are quantum of electromagnetic radiation, phonons, which are quantum of vibrational energy, and most atoms. Fermions on the other hand are particles that have half-integer spin values, such as 1/2, 3/2, 5/2 and so on. 3 Fermions are the most co...
  • Coordination Number And Atomic Packing Factor
    2,045 words
    The materials used in solar hot water systems must be carefully chosen to ensure that the unit will be efficient but also affordable. The efficiency of the conversion of sunlight energy to heat energy of the water depends on the materials of construction and the efficiency of heat transfer of the materials. Solar hot water systems use the processes of conduction to transfer the heat absorbed from the sun to the water and convection to move water through their structure. This assignment discusses...
  • Atoms Into An Excited State
    285 words
    The Laser / Atom Connection A laser is a device that controls the way that energized atoms release photons. Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, which describes very succinctly how a laser works! Although there are many types of lasers, all have certain essential features. In a laser, the lasing medium is "pumped" to get the atoms into an excited state. Typically, very intense flashes of light or electrical discharges pump the lasing medium and create ...
  • Valence Electron Substitution From Atom To Atom
    1,186 words
    Solar cells Solar cells today are mostly made of silicon, one of the most common elements on Earth. The crystalline silicon solar cell was one of the first types to be developed and it is still the most common type in use today. They do not pollute the atmosphere and they leave behind no harmful waste products. Photovoltaic cells work effectively even in cloudy weather and unlike solar heaters, are more efficient at low temperatures. They do their job silently and there are no moving parts to we...
  • Yen Atom And Yen Qi
    2,263 words
    Atom & Qi The atom is the smallest portion of a substance that is not perceivable by human senses. The notion of atoms was conceived by ancient Greeks and was developed over thousands of years of scientific inquiry. The concept of qi as the most basic substance of which the world (everything) is comprised, was understood by the ancient Chinese. Both! yen atom! | and! yen qi! | are believed to exist by human beings and both are considered to be unseen objects (until we could see atoms recently). ...
  • Uses Of Atomic Energy
    722 words
    When the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima Japan and then another on Nagasaki in 1945, the world began to change in many ways. The initial reaction to this deadliest of all weapons was one of great fear, but this was not the only reaction. Atomic energy was the most powerful source of energy man had harnessed to date. The five years following the dropping of the atomic bombs were a confusing time when people didn t know what to think of the fact that atomic energy had been harnes...
  • Electron Energy Levels In The Atom
    4,008 words
    An atom is the smallest unit of matter that is recognizable as a chemical ELEMENT. Atoms of different elements may also combine into systems called MOLECULES, which are the smallest units of chemical COMPOUNDS. In all these ordinary processes, atoms may be considered as the ancient Greeks imagined them to be: the ultimate building blocks of matter. When stronger for cesare applied to atoms, however, the atoms may break up into smaller parts. Thus atoms are actually composites and not units, and ...

  • Robert Oppenheimer
    592 words
    Robert Oppenheimer To build a bomb capable of destroying entire cities at once they needed a person with a smart, fast and creative brain. That person was Robert Oppenheimer. Robert Oppenheimer was the brilliant scientist behind the development of the atomic bomb. While atomic bombs kill lots of people, the atomic bomb won the war against the Japanese (World War 2). This helped because we would not have stood a chance attacking the main island on foot. While Robert's name has become synonymous w...
  • Web Atomic Energy Commission Internet Site
    999 words
    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission Nuclear physicist Alvin M. Weinberg told the Senate's Special Committee on Atomic Energy in December 1945: "Atomic power can cure as well as kill. It can fertilize and enrich a region as well as devastate it. It can widen man's horizons as well as force him back into the cave". The Atomic Energy Act of 1946 was passed with the intention of using potential peaceful benefits of atomic power. However, the act emphasized the military aspects of nuclear energy and fu...
  • Atomic Energy Act
    1,623 words
    Scientists discovered nuclear energy at the end of the nineteenth century. Within fifty years it became a decisive factor in our war with Japan and has affected international arms policies ever since. The study of nuclear energy began in the nineteenth century when Marie and Pierre Curie discovered the radioactive elements radium and polonium. Before this only uranium and thorium were the only radioactive elements that were known. Radium and polonium were hundreds of times more radioactive than ...
  • Highest Energy Electron From An Atom
    3,020 words
    Throughout the ages the study of what we call today chemistry has evolved into a highly developed point of study. One distinct element of chemistry is atomic theory. Throughout the ages atomic theory has been developed and extended by many different men who were all well-known chemists and physicists in their day. They developed the study of atoms from pure conjecture into known facts. John Dalton originally was a schoolteacher in England. He thought about atoms as particles, which could make up...

The theory is revolutionary as it replaces classical physics in the description of events at the microscopic level and now the theory provides the foundation for modern physics and chemistry. The person who formed the basis of th...
  • 1982 The Low Energy Anti Proton Ring
    2,390 words
    Introduction - What is antimatter? When you look at yourself in the mirror you see the opposite to you, what if this person really existed? Physicists would call the other you an Anti you. This is basically what antimatter is. It is the exact opposite of matter it has the same mass and theoretically the same properties except that every charge is reversed. In 1905 Albert Einstein wrote down the infamous equation E = mc 2 in other words matter is a concentrated form of energy. It also states that...
  • Electrons In The Conduction Band
    2,490 words
    What is a semiconductor and what is the basis of this classification? A semiconductor is a material that intermediates between a conductor and an insulator. Electrical conduction represents the ability of a material to conduct electric charges. Some materials are very good at it and are called conductors; the materials that are hopeless at it are called insulators. Semiconductors (aka semi-insulators) are not very good at it. But under certain conditions, they can almost be a conductor. What are...
