Focus Description:

Light a candle. Move one arm to the side and place a candle on the sleeve of your jacket. She hangs and doesn't fall. Remove the candle from your hand and place it on the other sleeve of your jacket. The same thing will happen (Fig. a).

Focus Hanging Candle

Focus secret:

A small needle was inserted into the side of the candle at an angle, not visible to the audience from the reverse side (Fig. b). The needle was located slightly above the middle of the candle, which is why the latter “hung” in a vertical position.

Improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells 14.06.2024

The latest solar technology research represents a significant breakthrough in improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells. This method, based on the use of pulsed light, offers promise for simplifying the production and expanding the applications of these cells. A research team from the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology has developed an innovative method that uses pulsed light to improve the electrical conductivity of PbS solar cells. This method can significantly reduce the processing time required to achieve similar results. PbS quantum dot solar cells have significant potential in solar technology due to their photovoltaic properties. However, the formation of defects on their surface can reduce their performance. The new method helps suppress defect formation and improve electrical conductivity. Using strong light to complete the process ... >>

Changes in a father's brain after the birth of a child 13.06.2024

A recent study conducted by scientists from the Hefei Institute of Physical Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences found interesting changes in the brains of men after becoming fathers. These changes were associated with involvement in child care, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Scientists found that men who became fathers experienced a loss of brain volume after giving birth. This volume loss was associated with greater involvement in parenting, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Researchers have found significant changes in men's brains between the prenatal and postnatal periods. In particular, there was a loss of gray matter volume, especially in parts of the brain responsible for higher functions such as language, memory, problem solving and decision making. Men who paid more attention to their children and spent more time with them lost more gray matter in their brains. This also affected their mental health ... >>

How many people are in the car 03.02.2005

To force car owners not to drive alone, but to take neighbors as fellow travelers, thereby saving fuel, space on the road and reducing air pollution, the British road authorities have introduced a separate lane for cars with passengers on some roads. But it turned out to be quite difficult for the police to make sure that the "individual farmers" did not occupy this row.

Scientists from Loughborough University have created an infrared video camera and software for it, allowing a computer with a connected camera in a stream of cars to highlight those in which there is no one but the driver. The system does not confuse with the head of the passenger sitting in the car either the muzzle of a large dog sitting next to the driver, or the head restraints available on each seat.

Even if the driver, wanting to deceive the machine, puts his open right hand on the headrest of the seat next to him, the program will not mistake his hand for a person's face. The number of the violator is registered, and a receipt for the fine is issued.
