  • Euclid's Extramission Theory

    characteristic of ancient science, many common ideas about optics were “hit or miss”, so to speak. Certain Greek thinkers had hypotheses about optics which are more or less in line with modern principles, but many held firmly to ideas which are at odds with the current understanding of reality. I discuss extramission theory (a hallmark of Greek optical science), the work of the atomists Democritus and Leucippus who rejected it and presented compelling (but flawed) alternative frameworks, the contrasting views of pivotal (and ubiquitous) philosophers Plato and Aristotle, Euclid’s highly mathematical and geometric treatment of optics, and Ptolemy’s…

  • Chemistry In The 1800's

    When flame test research is performed on an element, it is easy to see the color changes just by physically observing it. Often, many elements can have similar emission spectra’s, which is why Kirchhoff invented the Spectrometer. This is a specialized device that uses a prism and two mirrors that allow the light to be conducted into its unique emission spectra. From elements such as lithium to others like selenium, every single element has its own unique color or elemental fingerprint; this is…

This is why doing nothing to control carbon emissions is not an option. Greenhouse gas emissions are caused by many things. The largest portion of emissions comes from energy production, transportation and industries. Other contributors include agriculture and land use. There are several gases that are considered to be greenhouse gas…
