  • Graphene Lab Report

    Introduction Graphene is considered as pure carbon in the form of a very thin, one atom thick nearly transparent sheet. It is very strong for its low weight (100 times more stronger than steel and it conducts heat and electricity efficiently. While scientists had theorized about graphene for decades, it was first produced in the lab in 2003. Because it is virtually two-dimensional, it interacts oddly with light and with other materials. Researchers have identified the, ballistic transport of…

  • Does Sugar Affect The Freezing Of Water

    between water molecules that give ice its solidity”, Written by the Editors at infoplease in the article “Does sugar affect the freezing of water? Why?”. Carbonation according to Raymond Cheong, from MadSci, “impure water has a slightly smaller thermal conductivity. Therefore,” […] “carbonated water freezes slightly…

  • The Second Law Of Thermodynamics: The Purposes Of Energy And Energy

    For instance if a copper wire is heated and plunged into a beaker full of cold water, the particles in the wire will transfer to the water until thermal equilibrium is reached. At the center of the second law of thermodynamics is a property of thermodynamic systems called entropy. Heat cannot spontaneously flow from a cold object (low entropy) to a hot object (high entropy) in a closed system because…

  • Preparation Of Bromobenzylidene Lab Report

    For the synthesis of P2, a mixture of 1 (500 mg, 0.553 mmol), 2 (252 mg, 0.553 mmol), 3 (760 mg, 1.105 mmol), tris(o-tolyl)phosphine (P(o-tol)3) (13 mg, 0.044 mmol), and tris(dibenzylidene acetone)dipalladium(0) (Pd2(dba)3) (10 mg, 0.011 mmol) in anhydrous chlorobenzene (21 mL) was charged in a 100 mL round bottom flask. The resulting reaction mixture was heated at 150 °C under stirring for 3 days. Compound (2) (38 mg, 0.083 mmol) was added and stirred at 150 °C for 1 h. To that…

  • Double Diffusive Vargination Flows

    Double diffusive convection phenomenon occurs in situations where flow is driven by solutal gradients apart from thermal gradients. Present days in industrial processes like food processing, drying, chemical vapour deposition etc. the nature of fluid flow with in the process chambers largely governs the outcome. Thus research on double diffusive convection flows in relations to various applications in many mechanical and chemical engineering industries and also in fields like oceanography,…

  • Benefits Of Orbiting Spacecraft

    the cargo or– more importantly– the passengers. In the case of planet Earth, orbiting vehicles generate a substantial amount of thermal energy upon re-entry into the atmosphere, and the management of that immense amount of heat is fundamental in providing a safe environment for the crew and instrumentation on board the vehicle. The design of an efficient and reliable thermal protection system (TPS) is key, especially when considering the harsh conditions under which these materials must operate…

  • Titanium Research Paper

    difficulties associated with conventional welding methods, regarding to distortion and residual stress (Costaeal., 2007), where the physical properties of titanium make laser a good choice for welding its alloys, its low thermal conductivity prevents heat dissipation, and its low coefficient of thermal expansion, avoids the appearance of stresses during welding. Also the good absorption rate of titanium, for the laser beam, and its high melting point (Bertrand et al., 2007), indicate that, high…

  • Water Distillation Essay

    2.3.1 MAJOR PROCESSES 2.3.1.1 THERMAL PROCESSES (DISTILLATION) Around half of the world’s desalted water is produced with heat to distill freshwater from seawater. The process of distillation mimics the natural water cycle in that saline water is heated, producing water vapor that condensed to form freshwater. In an industrial plant or laboratory, water is heated to reach the boiling point to produce the maximum water vapor amount. To make it economically in a desalination plant, the…
