Polymer Microscopy

Polymer Microscopy, 3rd variation, is a accomplished and functional consultant to the research of the microstructure of polymers, and is the results of the authors' decades of educational and commercial event. to handle the wishes of scholars and execs from various backgrounds, introductory chapters care for the fundamental ideas of either polymer morphology and processing and microscopy and imaging thought.

Introduction to Confocal Fluorescence Microscopy, Second Edition

This e-book presents a complete account of the speculation of photo formation in a confocal fluorescence microscope in addition to a realistic guide to the operation of the device, its obstacles, and the translation of confocal microscopy facts. The appendices offer a brief connection with optical idea, microscopy-related formulation and definitions, and Fourier concept.

Remote Observatories for Amateur Astronomers: Using High-Powered Telescopes from Home

Beginner astronomers who are looking to improve their services to give a contribution to technology want glance no farther than this consultant to utilizing distant observatories. The individuals conceal find out how to construct your individual distant observatory in addition to the prevailing infrastructure of industrial networks of distant observatories which are to be had to the beginner.

On the Way to Understanding the Time Phenomenon: The Constructions of Time in Natural Science, Part 1

The topic of this publication is time, one of many small variety of elusive essences of the area, unsubdued by means of human will. the 3 international difficulties of ordinary technological know-how, these of the starting place of the Universe, lifestyles and realization, can't be solved with no checking out the character of time. with out a sturdy building of time it truly is very unlikely to explain, to qualify, to forecast and to manage quite a few approaches within the animate and inanimate nature.

Project 5 Stepping on the gas. The Idea Pressing down with your foot on the accelerator of a car does not necessarily cause you to accelerate. You may be moving forward with constant velocity. How can you tell if you are accelerating? This experiment shows you a few ways to determine whether you are accelerating or just moving along at constant velocity. In this project, you can also find ways to detect centripetal acceleration, which keeps things moving in a circle. What You Need Any or all of the following “accelerometers” can be used to detect acceleration: pendulum: any weight on a string float tied to a string held underwater candle partially filled tank of liquid accelerometer, such as shown in Figure 5-1 Figure 5-1 Accelerometer.

In addition, special thanks are offered to Steve Grabowski, Chis Aleo, Tiberiu Dragoiu, Robin Nolte, Tom Misniak, and Kim Feltre for enabling me to be part of a world where physics is appreciated, promoted, and shared on a daily basis. Contents Introduction Section 1 Motion Project 1 Getting started. Constant velocity. Running the gauntlet. Project 2 Picturing motion. Getting a move on. Project 3 The tortoise and the hare. Playing catch-up. Project 4 How does a sailboat sail against the wind? Components of force.

What You Need motion sensor appropriate computer interface for the motion sensor (roughly) 8 inch by 10 inch piece of cardboard Method Motion sensor (PASCO Easy Screen) Attach a motion sensor to your computer. If you have a PASCO motion sensor, it is connected through the computer’s USB port by way of a computer interface. Follow the specific details provided by the sensor’s manufacturer. If you are using the PASCO sensor, select the Easy Screen to get started. Four motion patterns will come up on the screen.
