He supposedly ran through the streets afterwards shouting, “Eureka, Eureaka!” which mean “I found it, I found it” (Zorman). It is interesting to note that almost all we know about the contributions of Archimedes to the world of science comes from three manuscripts discovered by the historian Johan Ludvig Heiberg and designated by him as codices A, B, and C.

Physical specifications and categories of color are associated with materials, objects, and light sources based on physical properties of color such as reflection of light, light absorption, or emission spectra. This paper seeks to discuss our perception of color.
This method of imaging is used in functional MRI and rapid whole brain imaging. The time required to acquire an image is dependent on Tacq = Nacq x Ny x TR Where Nacq is the no. of acquisitions, Ny is the no. of phase encoding steps and TR is the repetition time.
The study tells that the world is changing, and new things keep coming up. The same applies to the scientific knowledge and understanding that constantly keeps changing. Historical events and scientific discoveries are capable of changing people’s understanding of the natural world and scientific concepts.
However, it is necessary to assume that the frequency of the true resonance will depend on the actual value (local) of the magnetic field in operations. On the other hand, McRobbie, et al, argues that it is also necessary to note that the magnetic field must be uniformly designed, and temporarily superimposed on the focal static field.

Meteorites Evidence in Support of Solar Nebular Hypothesis
The solar nebula hypothesis proposed by Peirre-Simmon Laplace’s theory in 1796, is a theory, which described the formation of the solar system (Abruzzo 36).
These features give Jupiter the distinction of having its own “miniature solar system.” (“Jovian Giant”)For many years astronomers and scientists have been intrigued with the planet of Jupiter and exploration of the planet seems to be ongoing. There are many theories about the formation of Jupiter.
Newton’s second law was put up to investigate the relationship between mass force and acceleration. Finding coefficient of static friction, µs and the coefficient of kinetic friction, µk. requires set formulae to determine the acceleration of a body in relation to the force and mass of an object.
Throughout the course we have undertaken our research using the following parameters, observation, predictions, experiments, data collection drawing conclusions. Observation is necessary in scientific research in order to formulate a hypothesis. It allows the scientists to firstly ask questions about a certain natural incident and observe this phenomenon (‘Introduction to the Scientific Method’, n.d).
These forest ecosystems in addition to being home to this wide variety of life forms are essential in helping to generate the oxygen that is so vital to mankind. Unfortunately man’s greed has depleted large swathes of rainforests, resulting in global warming and climate changes that threaten not only the extinction of a large number of plants and animals, but also human inhabitants like the local tribal people.
The theory of lasers was invented by Albert Einstein through stimulated emission. The introduction of lasers has brought a great evolution in science and technological development by introducing different types of machines and systems with great potentials in almost every field.
One is essentially shed the light of understanding why engineering and architecture are fields of great professional worth when it comes to designing processes and selecting materials that would constitute the foundation of a structure being erected. To me, it is rather fascinating how engineers are able to estimate strength and weakness of materials and account for thermodynamic properties that collectively make a huge factor so that specialists may gain idea of whether a project is bound to succeed or fail, based on the test of time and weather.
We have been utilizing petrol and diesel over a span of century and now the time has come that we switch on to another alternative fuels in an effort to save the living standard of the people of the 21st century. According to (Wald)“One of the nation’s biggest energy problems is that nearly all of its ground transportation fuel is derived from oil”.
This paper gives an explanation of the formation, occurrences, causes, and how an earthquake forms through the tectonic plate theory. The crust and the uppermost part of the mantle are made up the tectonic plates that float over the molten rocks. The plates are in a continuous motion and move over and under each other colliding at each other, which can result in a stretch, bend, and breakings.
The paper also goes into a discussion on the value that perfusion information has in clinical settings. Perfusion weighted magnetic resonance imaging or PWI makes use of energies from radio frequencies, computing technologies, and magnetic fields generate cross-section brain images that have high levels of detail.
Water proton amounts found in the inhomogeneity of the local field will result in off-resonance. The frequency changes of such spins vary in different regions and in different patients. However, its behavior will still resemble that of off-resonance fat. Several methods have been used in the correction of geometric distortions in MRI diffusion weighted normally resulting from static magnetic field inhomogeneties.
It is evidently clear from the discussion that Young’s Modulus (E) is a measure of the stiffness of an elastic material defined as the ratio of stress to the corresponding strain when a material is put under tension or compression. The most commonly used test specimens are cylindrical in shape as shown in the figure in the paper.
Later, Albert Einstein described the motion through what came to be referred to as the molecular theory of matter, also referred to as kinetic theory of matter. This postulates that all matter would be constituted of tiny particles referred to as molecules which constantly move and bounce off each other just like the billiard balls.
This project makes nanostructured crystalline TiO2 thin films as well as composite membranes of TiO2/Al2O3 that have the properties of photocatalytic, disinfection, separation, and anti-biofouling all at the same time. Acetic acid-based sol–gel route self-assembled surfactant molecules have been used in this process.

The focus for this investigation is around five locations presented as cross sectional areas. The site descriptions for the areas provide physical views and logical dimensions as viewed on maps and on the ground. The calculations of the measurements provided are a representation for the estimates that is used in solving the problem.
Advances in physics have always emanated from someone’s mind: relativity theory was borne of Einstein, Heisenberg and Schrodinger came up with the quantum theory, and Beethoven saw the development of magnificent symphonies. Hence, physics and music could be considered as products of the human mind.
This paper discussed aerodynamics, the study of forces as a result of which objects get able to fly in the air in an effort to explain the whole process of how planes fly. It is very important for everyone to be familiar with the physical demonstration or physical description of the airplane lift.
It is one member of a family of wide body long range commercial aircraft built by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. It had its first flight in 1994 when it was introduced to compete with other aircrafts such as Airbus A330 and the McDonnell Douglas DC-10. The most distinguishing features of this aircraft include large twin turbo-fan engines, a set of six wheels on each main bogey, a perfectly circular fuselage cross-section and a blade-like tail cone.
Several theoretical and experimental studies have been undertaken to investigate the feedback systems or random lasers, using semi-conductor powder and other organic materials (Marouf and Zekri, 1661). The difference between the conventional laser and the random laser has been identified in their feedback mechanisms, where the conventional laser applies a system of gain medium and cavity to give a feedback.
This monolithic monument is famous for its spectacular columnar jointing. This geological feature has a height of 1,267 feet above the surrounding terrain and 1,546 meters above the mean sea level. This is world renowned landmark of the northern Great Plains (Britton & Tamara, 4).
This paper talks about the findings of this mission through a lecture conducted by Dr. Chris McKay. The Speaker Dr. Chris McKay is a planetary scientist at the NASA Ames Research Center. Most of his research focuses on the search for life in the solar system and the evolution of the solar system.
The Industrial Revolution only focused on the development phase; spotlights were not on the industrial waste and its effects on the environment. Hence, neglecting such a problem is the reason why the world these days is facing several environmental tribulations due to which human lives are at risk.
This particular energy can be measured through the temperature of that matter (whether it is in gas, liquid or solid form) or stated differently, the hotness or coldness of matter can known by measuring its temperature.
This paper also explains the transitional state of matter from solids to liquid, then to gas and the energy involved to break the bond. The result of this work finally gives an insight of how heat transfer relies on temperature variation to move from a source or a region of high to lower concentration.
Wind Energy in India. Natural gases have been the biggest, if not the only, source of energy for a majority of people in the world. As a result, humankind has relied on nonrenewable sources of energy to meet their energy requirement needs. However, overreliance on natural gases has seen the world witness the continued depletion of this essential commodity as the world’s natural energy resources diminish at an alarming rate.
Chlorofluorocarbons commonly referred to as CFCs were first discovered in laboratory experiments during the 1830’s and they were later discovered in nature by the year 1850. The amount of ozone in the earth’s atmosphere is measured in Dobson units. Over the years, the ozone levels in the earth have been reducing drastically from a high of 320 Dobson units in 1955 over the Antarctic to lows of 90 Dobson units in 1995.This reduction has mainly been attributed to manmade chemical pollutants.
MRI scanners are widely available in clinical routine diagnostics (Vittinghoff 2012, 45). Nevertheless, increased signal intensity changes due to higher field strength thus emphasizing on the efficacy of lofty field concentration within the medical locales.
The above micrographs represent a Secondary electron image (SE) and a Backscatter electron image (BSE) of the same region of an asbestos sample.The SE image appears more three dimensional than the BSE image. The cluster of fibers at the center in the SE image appears more rounded, while the one in the BSE appears flat.
Images in TEM are obtained by focusing an electron beam on the specimen. The electrons are absorbed, transmitted, scattered or backscattered. Depending on the kind of image required by the operator, either the transmitted electrons (called direct beam) or the scattered electrons (called diffracted beam) is selected.
Within this dissertation, an examinatio of ferro-, ferri-, and paramagnetic fields and how they all behave distinctly and how the level of magnetism of an object can be measured using a superconducting quantum interfering device (SQUID), the Magnetic Optical Kerr Effect (MOKE), or a Vibrating Sample Magnetometer (VSM) will be examined.
For sample 238, the transmission is directly proportion to the wavelength of the projected light. As the wavelength increases, the percentage transmission increases but a rapid increase in the percentage transmission can be seen by the projection of light from wave length of 455nm to 627nm.
The Mayan prophecy states that many devastating events will occur in December 2012 at a certain time that will lead to the destruction of the earth. On one hand, the astronomical knowledge of this ancient meso-american civilization is known to be far ahead of their times.
Electromagnetic waves comprise of an amalgamation of oscillating electrical and magnetic fields, perpendicular to each other. This is complicated to visualize, however, the waveform has similar distinctiveness of other types of waves (Evans 34).The creation and detection of the wave and its impact on the mind depend on the range of wavelengths.

Many environmental activists have provided how the global warming is going to affect the environment, as they have all come to the same conclusion about the fact that the global warming is really going to affect the earthly environment, where the extent of its harmfulness will keep increasing with due respect of time.
The changing lifestyle pattern of human beings which incorporates consumption of acidic substances like soft drinks and fruit juices has been a major contributor for the development and progression of dental erosion. Immense research in this field has strongly indicated a definite connection between the role of fruit juices and soft drinks and the development of dental erosion.
The US launched its first satellite Explorer I in 1958, soon after the Soviet Sputnik in 1957. This was the start of space race. The race is in the Cold War era when both nations strived for supremacy in every field. The period was a set of high tension incidents without direct military action.
Accurate image reconstruction depends on resonance frequency (rf) of a spin, which is achieved by strong homogenous external field and superposition of a spatially linear gradient. If these conditions are not met, then the relative positions of anatomical structures will be misrepresented in the reconstructed MRI image.
Innovative ideas have come out to save the earth from destruction of its ozone layer. World population is expected to increase by about 10 billion by year 2050 and if electricity demands are not programmed by now, there will surely be insurmountable problems for the people and the deterioration of the environment will exacerbate.
