Brimming with attention-grabbing and enjoyable proof approximately a hundred medical breakthroughs, this assortment provides the genuine tales at the back of the historical past of technological know-how, even as delivering a wide ranging review of the historical past of technology and an creation to a couple of crucial scientists in historical past. Grades 6 and up.

Throughout heritage, technology has replaced lives and dramatically altered the best way the universe is perceived. concentrating on the a hundred most vital medical occasions of all time—from Archimedes' discovery of the 2 basic rules underlying physics and engineering (levers and buoyancy) in 260 B.C.E. to human anatomy, Jupiter's moons, electrons, black holes, the human genome, and more—storyteller Kendall Haven has created a prepared reference for these looking info on technological know-how discoveries.

The Feynman Lectures on Physics, Volume 3: Quantum Mechanics

Undying and collectible, The Feynman Lectures on Physics are crucial studying, not only for college kids of physics, yet for someone looking an insightful creation to the sphere from the inimitable Richard P. Feynman.

“When i glance on the Feynman Lectures on Physics, i believe a really own feel of closeness to them,” stated Feynman, on reflection at the origins of those books. starting from simple Newtonian dynamics via such bold theories as Einstein’s relativity, Maxwell’s electrodynamics, and Dirac’s forumulation of quantum mechanics, those accrued lectures stand as a monument to transparent exposition and deep insight—and to Feynman’s deep reference to the field.

Originally dropped at scholars at Caltech and later shaped via co-authors Robert B. Leighton and Matthew Sands right into a specific textbook, the distinguished Feynman Lectures on Physics permits us to event one of many 20th century’s maximum minds. This new version positive aspects more suitable typography, figures, and indexes, with corrections licensed through the California Institute of expertise.

Interface Controlled Materials, Volume 9

A typical function of complicated useful fabrics - equivalent to skinny movies, layered buildings and all types of nanoscale fabrics (ultrafine powders, polycrystals, nanocomposites, nanoporous or nanotubular fabrics) - is that their homes are quite often stimulated by way of the constitution and composition in their surfaces and interfaces.

Energy science and applied technology: Proceedings of the International Conference on Energy Science and Applied Technology (ESAT 2016), Wuhan, China, 25-26 June 2016

The 2016 foreign convention on power technology and utilized know-how (ESAT 2016) hung on June 25-26 in Wuhan, China aimed to supply a platform for researchers, engineers, and academicians, in addition to commercial pros, to give their learn effects and improvement actions in strength technology and engineering and its utilized know-how.

Those 1674 studies were where he made his great discovery. He discovered a host of microscopic protozoa (bacteria) in every water drop. He had discovered microscopic life, invisible to the human eye. Van Leeuwenhoek expanded his search for these unseeably small creatures and found them everywhere: on human eyelashes, on fleas, in dust, and on skin. He drew and described these tiny creatures with excellent, precise drawings. Each drawing often took days to complete. As an amateur, Van Leeuwenhoek had to work at his science in the evenings and early morning hours when not at work.

New York: Magavelda Press, 2001. Bacteria Year of Discovery: 1680 What Is It? Microscopic organisms exist that cannot be seen by the human eye. Who Discovered It? Anton van Leeuwenhoek Why Is This One of the 100 Greatest? Just as Galileo used his telescope to open the human horizon to the planets and stars of space, so van Leeuwenhoek used his microscope to open human awareness to the microscopic world that was invisibly small and that no one had even dreamed existed.

Who Discovered It? Nicholas Steno Why Is This One of the 100 Greatest? The only way we can learn about the ancient past is to examine fossil remains of now extinct plants and animals and try to re-create that long-gone life and environment. Scientists can only do this if they correctly interpret the fossil remains that are dug from ancient rock layers.
