The importance of Earth's magnetic field
By: Rex Trulove
The magnetic field the earth generates is of extreme importance. Without it, life as we know it would not exist. To see why this is, it is only necessary to understand a few basics about what causes the electro-magnetic field and what it does. Magnetic...
The importance of Earth's magnetic field
By: Daisy Sue
The earth’s magnetic field is somewhat like a simple bar magnet. It has two poles on the surface of the earth, the northern magnetic pole and the southern magnetic pole. Away from the surface of the earth, the magnetic field becomes distorted. Just as...

By: Terrence Aym
In a stunning bid to combat rising heat in the Mongolian capital, Ulan Bator, engineers are embarking on a bold plan to cool the city with a mammoth block of ice.The amazing geoengineering product has never been attempted on such a scale and is...
Causes and impact of major extinction events
By: Mac Pike
Extinction, a fact of life Extinction of species, genera and sometimes families has been a part of the history of life on earth since life first appeared approximately 3.8 billion years ago. Whenever a species reaches a point on its timeline when the average...
The effects of natural disasters on Japan
By: Christopher Florian
Mother Nature’s Devastating Power In today’s present time the great nation of Japan is under great devastation. The surprising fact is that it is not coming from any other nation.It is because of its geographical location filled with earthquakes and tsunamis. Death...
The effects of natural disasters on Japan
By: Joseph Malek
A natural disaster can strike Japan at any time and because that country is not very big, area wise, the population within the entire country is likely to suffer the effects of an earthquake, a hurricane, a tidal wave or some other violent weather event...
The effects of natural disasters on Japan
By: Sophie Miles
Japan, the Land of the Rising Sun, is a country that has seen days of triumphs… and of disasters. It is an archipelago of over 3000 small islands with four main islands: Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku. Three-quarters (85%) of the land is mountainous and...
The laws of thermodynamics
By: Nigel Holmes
Thermodynamics is the science of how heat, and more broadly, energy, flows. The Laws of Thermodynamics are universal principles that explain how these flows work, much as Newton’s Laws of Motion describes how physical objects move. For a more detailed explanation, take a look...
By: Prabhu Peiris
The study of energy is called thermodynamics. Thermodynamics describes how different forms of energy relate to each other and how they interconvert. Energy exists as several forms, such as heat, sound etc. Thermodynamics describe how these forms of energy behave in a thermodynamic system. There...
By: Blaise Pascal
The laws of thermodynamics stem from the study of work, energy, energy transfer, and the relationship between them. Initial work with these theories began in the late 18th century but gained prominence in the 19th century as people sought more efficient machines and engines. Ultimately...
