A simple illustration of a solar installation

Grid-Tie: (Simple and Easy) – My preference Solar Panels generates electricity, electricity then goes to Grid-Tie DC to AC Inverter , then goes to Your House(powering your household appliances). If there are any excess electricity, it will be fed into the power Grid. Your power company will pay you for the excess electricity that you produced!(Net metering) Normally requires approval …

My Solar Project

It is just a mini solar project that i have been playing around with. Up till now, i have made one small solar panel with 7 rectangular solar cells (6″ x 3″) rated at 3.6 A and 0.55V each. I’ve embarked on this project to determine the feasibility of using solar power to reduce my utility bills.Topics:What You Need To …

All About Lasers

High-power lasers are used for cutting, and for welding sheets of metal together. Lasers are being used to generate sufficient energy to initiate nuclear fusion. Lasers fire simultaneously and their beams intersect to deliver 200 kJ of energy to a fuel pellet in less than a nanosecond (10-9 s). The aim is to make the implosion so rapidly that individual …

Another View Of Spontaneous Emission

The emission of photons by atoms, under the influence of the photons that comprise an electromagnetic field (light is essentially an electromagnetic field) applied to the atom, is a phenomenon called stimulated emission. Atoms also emit photons when an electromagnetic field is not applied, in a phenomenon called spontaneous emission. Quantum electrodynamics shows that spontaneous emission takes place because there …

History of the atom

During the days of Newton, the atom was pictured to be a tiny, solid, indestructible sphere. This model sufficed for the discussion on the kinetic theory of gases but fell apart when the electrical nature of atoms was discovered. In 1897, Joseph John Thompson determined the charge-to-mass ratio for electrons and the following year he suggested a model of the …

Safety Precautions When Being Around Radioactive Substances

Handling Radioactive Materials Reduce the time of contact with radioactive materials to a minimum. Solid sources are most easily handled. They should be manipulated remotely. Example: Using tongs or in a glove-box. Any ingestion of radioactive material should be avoided. For example, radioactive particles lodged in lungs are much more dangerous and harmful than if they were outside the body. …
