Focus Description:

The magician takes the newspaper, carefully looks through it, goes to the stand and fix the newspaper on it. Then he lights a cigarette, taking a couple of puffs, in several places he touches a burning cigarette to a newspaper sheet and leaves.

There will be a revival in the hall: the flame from a lit cigarette began to slide over the newspaper sheet, clearly displaying the letters. And now the letters form a whole phrase: "Smoking shortens life." Then came the picture of the smoking cigarette itself. How did the drawing on the newspaper appear from the touch of a cigarette?

Focus secret:

A newspaper, a cigarette and a coaster - at first glance, and all the props for the trick. But chemistry plays a major role in the focus. You will need a solution of potassium nitrate (potassium nitrate) at the rate of 0,5 teaspoon per tablespoon of warm water.

The stronger the solution, the faster the light will slide over the newspaper. Letters are applied to a newspaper sheet with a brush or a special pen. The phrase should form a continuous line so that the light, moving forward, does not stop. Therefore, the font must be thought out accordingly. The image of a burning cigarette should be drawn with the same conditions in mind.

Before applying the composition to the newspaper, it is necessary to carefully check the possibility of sliding the fire through the letters. Having applied the text and the contours of a burning cigarette to paper, one should immediately mark the points that the burning cigarette should touch, since when the composition dries on the newspaper, no trace of what is written will remain.

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 ... >>

All the gold in the world 07.12.2006

Australian geologist Bernard Wood of Macquarie University believes that more than 99% of all gold on Earth billions of years ago, due to its gravity, sank into the center of the planet and became part of the Earth's core. In his opinion, there is enough gold in the core to cover the entire area of ​​​​our planet with a layer of precious metal about half a meter thick.

It is now believed that the Earth arose from many small asteroid-like bodies, the so-called planetesimals. They bumped into each other and stuck together. In their composition, planetesimals were similar to modern meteorites. Based on the composition of meteorites and comparing it with the composition of the earth's crust, Wood noticed that there was too little gold, platinum and nickel in the earth's crust. He suggested that these metals, due to their high density and affinity for iron, sank to the center of the Earth and became part of its iron core. The earth then was a solid ball of molten magma.

If meteorites had not continued to bring gold to the Earth even after its crust had hardened, there would be almost no gold on the surface, and it would be an even rarer and more expensive metal than it is now.

According to Wood's calculations, there should be 1 quadrillion tons of gold in the Earth's core. This is only a small fraction of the total mass of the nucleus, about one millionth. There is six times more platinum in the core.
