The Quantum Brain, Parallel Worlds and Time Shifts Modern physics has determined that energy is information. Therefore entropy is a condition of increasing chaos in the order of the underlying information contained in quantum energy. [Quantum physics] The information contained in energy is universal. This...
A brief guide to the states of matter
By: Tom Brend
The state of a matter is a variable property of matter. The state of a substance can be influenced by heat and pressure, thus changing the substance's state of matter. As this is thought to be an introduction, we focus on the classical states of...

How does activation energy relate to kinetics?
By: Ernest Capraro
Activation energy and the rate at which occurs (chemical kinetics) are inversely related. While activation energy is not the only factor that influences reaction rates, it is generally true that increasing the activation energy of a given reaction slows it down, and that lowering the...
