  • Small Particles And High Energy
    707 words
    RADIOACTIVITY AND ITS EFFECTS, (THE CHERNOBYL INCIDENT). Some nuclei are radioactive, that is they spontaneously emit small particles, and high energy electromagnetic radiation, in doing so they form more stable nuclei. There are three different kinds of radiation, alpha, beta, and gamma. Quantitative studies have shown that alpha and beta are high energy particles, and gamma rays are very short high energy wavelengths (electro-magnetic radiation). Radioactivity has benefitted man in various use...
  • Charpak's Chamber
    543 words
    Georges Charpak Georges Charpak, a French citizen, was born on August 1, 1924 in Poland. Charpak's family moved from Poland to Paris when he was seven years old.

D. in 1955 from the College de France, Paris, where he ...
  • Resonant Frequency Of The Primary Circuit
    1,444 words
    PES Physics Information Search A Tesla coil is a device that produces a high-frequency, high voltage current. When working at such high frequencies it can generate spectacular lightning-like discharges in to the air. The most popular use for the Tesla coils has been in the film industry, where they are used whenever lightning or electrical arcs are required. Scaled down versions of the tesla coil are also used in television sets. The Tesla coil was invented over 100 years ago. By Nikola Tesla. (...
  • High Energy Particles Collide
    907 words
    In certain polar regions of the earth, a rare and fascinating phenomenon occurs in the dark season of winter. This phenomenon is called the Northern Lights, or auroras. In areas where auroras can be seen, the sun shines brightly for six months and then disappears for the next six. The sun follows a straight path across the sky, rising in the north and setting in the south. This is because of the latitude of these regions. Unlike other regions of earth, the polar regions either completely face th...
  • High Energy Particles Like Cosmic Ray
    1,398 words
    HIGH ENERGY PARTICLES IN THE EARTH'S MAGNETOSPHERE INTRODUCTION Cosmic rays are not actually part of the electromagnetic spectrum, but are actually particles that have high electron volt values and travel at speeds almost the same as light. Not a lot is known about the origins of high-energy particles, but we do know some information and some estimated values. There are really three main questions I want answered on this topic. "What are high energy particles and where do they come from? Why are...
