Science and the law of entropy
By: Kenneth Andrews
The law of entropy, or the second law of thermodynamics, holds that in a closed system, entropy always increases (or remains constant, but increases in the end). The first law of thermodynamics runs that energy can be neither created nor destroyed, merely transformed from one...

An inductor comprises a coil of conductive wire, such as copper, that produces a magnetic field which supports the normal flow of current. The wire is wound onto a material referred to as the core - both should be conductive to allow the free flow...

The US military has officially reached the future. In an amazing revelation, Marine Corps Lt. Col. Dave Thompson, project manager for the joint project office for robotics systems discussed the "insatiable" demand for robotic everything, from flying vehicles to terrain eating walkers. Now, robots comprise...

As the dawn of the twentieth century approached the horizon of human comprehension, mans classical understandings of matter and energy were about to be turned upside down. The instigation of this tumult first occurred in the mind of one German physicists, Max Plank, who was...
Do time machines really exist?
By: Calder Morton-Ferguson
Many time machines exist in the world today, but in many different senses. Here are just a couple of the awesome machines, some invented by humans and their intuitive minds, some naturally occurring in the universe. Here I will explain the scientific views on time...

Next to resistors and inductors, the capacitor is one of the simplest of electronic components to understand. The capacitor is referred to as a static electrical charge device because it is comprised of two plates upon which either a surplus or deficiency of electrons are...
How capacitors work
By: Nigel Holmes
Most of us have taken a photograph indoors, using the flash lamp built in to the camera. When “Flash” mode is selected there’s usually a short delay before the camera is ready. That delay is caused by the electronics in the camera charging...
