  • What’s the science behind water skipping spheres | The Financial Express
    approach was playful at first In general I have always found that childish curiosity often leads to profound discovery said Tadd Truscott assistant professor of mechanical engineering In addition the team found that elastic spheres can bounce off the water surface from much higher impact angles compared to rigid spheres a big clue into why these elastic objects are much easier to skip Skipping objects along the water surface has a wide range of applications from simple aquatic toys to naval operations The study also provides insight into methods for modeling objects that interact with the water surface and have elastic responses to the surface like rubber boats tubes wakeboards and water skis Truscott explained in a paper appeared in the journal Nature Communications First Published on February 5 2016 7 58 pm Please Wait while comments are loading Calculators Tax Calculator House Loan Calculator Financial Planner Inflation Planner Pension Calculator Employee PF Calculator Equity Screener Auto Loan Retirement Plan Savings Investment Guidance Videos BMW 7 series Merc S600 showcased at Auto Expo 2016 Auto Expo 2016 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Baleno RS unveiled Auto Expo 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta MPV makes its India debut Auto Expo 2016 New Hyundai Tucson SUV revealed Galleries IPL 9 auction Market Capitalisation Employment index Vegetable oil import BSE Sensex more PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep oil refinery Top 10 takeaways Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again box office collections soar to Rs 14 85 cr by day 2 New Mahindra cars at the Delhi Auto Expo 2016 In the news PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep oil refinery Top 10 takeaways Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again box office collections soar to Rs 14 85 cr by day 2 India s biotech moment A made in India Zika virus vaccine Sanam Teri Kasam collections at

  • Battery technology could provide fresh water from salty seas | The Financial Express
    Smith said The pressure required to pump the water through is much less since it is simply flowing the water over the electrodes instead of forcing it through a membrane This translates to much smaller energy needs close to the very minimum required by nature which in turn translates to lower costs In addition the rate of water flowing through it can be adjusted more easily than other types of desalination technologies that require more complex plumbing the study said The researchers conducted a modelling study to see how their device might perform with salt concentrations as high as seawater and found that it could recover an estimated 80 percent of desalinated water First Published on February 5 2016 5 11 pm Please Wait while comments are loading Calculators Tax Calculator House Loan Calculator Financial Planner Inflation Planner Pension Calculator Employee PF Calculator Equity Screener Auto Loan Retirement Plan Savings Investment Guidance Videos BMW 7 series Merc S600 showcased at Auto Expo 2016 Auto Expo 2016 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Baleno RS unveiled Auto Expo 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta MPV makes its India debut Auto Expo 2016 New Hyundai Tucson SUV revealed Galleries IPL 9 auction Market Capitalisation Employment index Vegetable oil import BSE Sensex more PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep oil refinery Top 10 takeaways Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again box office collections soar to Rs 14 85 cr by day 2 New Mahindra cars at the Delhi Auto Expo 2016 In the news PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep oil refinery Top 10 takeaways Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again box office collections soar to Rs 14 85 cr by day 2 India s biotech moment A made in India Zika virus vaccine Sanam Teri Kasam collections at Rs 1 25 cr Valentine s Day booster shot missing New

  • Cosmic methanol reactions led to life on Earth? | The Financial Express
    the nucleochemical transformation of hydrogen into carbon nitrogen oxygen and others A few million years later supernova explosions in these stars flung elements into the surrounding space forming water and hydrocarbons compounds containing carbon and hydrogen such as methane and methanol How more complex hydrocarbons evolved including those that would eventually lead to life on Earth remains an open question Some astrophysicists propose that they all came from methane which is composed of one carbon atom and four hydrogen atoms The researchers found that methanol an abundant derivative of methane and better known on Earth as wood alcohol is more reactive than methane itself The research was published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society First Published on February 4 2016 9 03 pm Please Wait while comments are loading Calculators Tax Calculator House Loan Calculator Financial Planner Inflation Planner Pension Calculator Employee PF Calculator Equity Screener Auto Loan Retirement Plan Savings Investment Guidance Videos BMW 7 series Merc S600 showcased at Auto Expo 2016 Auto Expo 2016 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Baleno RS unveiled Auto Expo 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta MPV makes its India debut Auto Expo 2016 New Hyundai Tucson SUV revealed Galleries IPL 9 auction Market Capitalisation Employment index Vegetable oil import BSE Sensex more PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep oil refinery Top 10 takeaways Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again box office collections soar to Rs 14 85 cr by day 2 New Mahindra cars at the Delhi Auto Expo 2016 In the news PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep oil refinery Top 10 takeaways Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again box office collections soar to Rs 14 85 cr by day 2 India s biotech moment A made in India Zika virus vaccine Sanam Teri Kasam collections at Rs 1 25 cr Valentine s Day booster

  • New process to create clean fuel from thin air! | The Financial Express
    the study along with George Olah of USC The researchers bubbled air through an aqueous solution of pentaethylenehexamine or PEHA adding a catalyst to encourage hydrogen to latch onto the CO2 under pressure They then heated the solution converting 79 per cent of the CO2 into methanol Though mixed with water the resulting methanol can be easily distilled Prakash said Researchers hope to refine the process to the point that it could be scaled up for industrial use Despite its outsized impact on the environment the actual concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere is relatively small roughly 400 parts per million or 0 04 per cent of the total volume according to the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration For a comparison there is more than 23 times as much the noble gas Argon in the atmosphere which still makes up less than 1 per cent of the total volume Previous efforts have required a slower multistage process with the use of high temperatures and high concentrations of CO2 meaning that renewable energy sources would not be able to efficiently power the process researchers said The new system operates at around 125 to 165 degrees Celsius minimising the decomposition of the catalyst which occurs at 155 degrees Celsius It also uses a homogeneous catalyst making it a quicker one pot process In a lab the researchers demonstrated that they were able to run the process five times with only minimal loss of the effectiveness of the catalyst The study was published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society First Published on February 3 2016 8 25 pm Tags Carbon Dioxide Please Wait while comments are loading More on this story Global warming Hotter nights flooding Earth s atmosphere with more carbon Tropical forests absorb more CO2 than thought NASA Global carbon dioxide emissions at all time high Study Calculators Tax Calculator House Loan Calculator Financial Planner Inflation Planner Pension Calculator Employee PF Calculator Equity Screener Auto Loan Retirement Plan Savings Investment Guidance Videos BMW 7 series Merc S600 showcased at Auto Expo 2016 Auto Expo 2016 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Baleno RS unveiled Auto Expo 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta MPV makes its India debut Auto Expo 2016 New Hyundai Tucson SUV revealed Galleries IPL 9 auction Market Capitalisation Employment index Vegetable oil import BSE Sensex more PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep oil refinery Top 10 takeaways Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again box office collections soar to Rs 14 85 cr by day 2 New Mahindra cars at the Delhi Auto Expo 2016 In the news PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep oil refinery Top 10 takeaways Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again box office collections soar to Rs 14 85 cr by day 2 India s biotech moment A made in India Zika virus vaccine Sanam Teri Kasam collections at Rs 1 25 cr Valentine s Day booster shot missing New Mahindra cars at the Delhi Auto Expo 2016 From Real Madrid to Chelsea Know the top 10 richest clubs Earthquake
