It has become a common realisation that conventional sources of energy like coal, which are being depleted at an alarming rate, will not sustain the needs of the swiftly growing population in coming generations. Non-conventional sources of energy are in vogue these days. But nothing comes as a God’s gift. Dams bring innumerable social problems at our palms, while wind energy too does not offer a perfect solution. With these uncertainties, wouldn’t it look like a candle in darkness if a source of energy that produces 4 million times as much heat energy as coal could be used in the near future? … Continue readingTHE DAWN OF A QUANTUM LEAP: NUCLEAR FUSION

The Science Behind String Instruments

One of the most common string instruments, something that has been used in music for over 4000 years- The guitar! The guitar is usually used as one of the lead instruments. This is usually because of its ability to amplify the noises produced by the strings. When the strings vibrate, they produce a sound, which is amplified by the guitar. Vibrations vary, depending on the length, width and tension of the strings. … Continue readingThe Science Behind String Instruments
