Focus Description:

Uncork the bottle with the “magic” liquid. Cast a magic spell. Before the eyes of the audience, the liquid will instantly turn into a solid mass of crystals sparkling with all the colors of the rainbow.

Focus secret:

This trick is done with mirabilite crystals. This substance called “bitter salt” is widely used in medicine. For the demonstration you will need 100 g of mirabilite.

Boil three-quarters of a glass of water in a clean saucepan, then, without removing from the heat, gradually add this substance into the water, stirring all the time. The salt will begin to settle to the bottom. Slowly and carefully fill a large bottle with the hot solution and seal it tightly. When the resulting supersaturated solution has cooled, you can begin performing the trick.

Having uncorked the bottle, quietly throw another crystal of “bitter salt” into it - and the required transformation will immediately occur. You can use a “magic wand” - a pencil on which several grains of mirabilite are pre-fixed.

The speech of sperm whales is similar to that of humans 18.05.2024

In the world of the ocean, where the mysterious and unknown coexists with the studied, sperm whales, with their huge brains, are of particular interest to science. Researchers, working with a huge array of audio recordings collected during the Dominica Sperm Whale Project (DSWP) - more than 8000 recordings, seek to unravel the secrets of their communication and understand the structure and complexity of the language of these mysterious creatures. By studying in detail the recordings of 60 sperm whales in the eastern Caribbean, scientists have revealed surprising features of their communication, revealing the complexity of their language. "Our observations indicate that these whales have a highly developed combinatorial communication system, including rubato and ornaments, which indicates their ability to quickly adapt and vary during communication. Despite significant differences in evolution, sperm whales have elements in their communication that are characteristic of human communication," says Shane Gero, a biologist at Carleton University and director of the CETI project.

Electron spin for quantum information transfer 18.05.2024

The transfer of quantum information remains one of the key tasks of modern science. Recent advances in the use of electron spin to expand the capabilities of information transfer in quantum systems have become very important. Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are pushing the frontiers of quantum information science by experimenting with the possibilities of electron spin. Electron spin, a natural quantum bit, is a potentially powerful means for storing and transmitting information in quantum systems. Magnon wave packets, collective excitations of electron spin, have revealed their potential to transmit quantum information over significant distances. The work of Berkeley Lab researchers has revolutionized the way such excitations propagate in antiferromagnets, opening up new prospects for quantum technologies. Using pairs of laser pulses, scientists disrupted antiferromagnetic order in one place and simultaneously studied it in another, creating ... >>

Sound-absorbing silk 17.05.2024

In a world where noise is becoming increasingly intrusive, the emergence of innovative materials that can reduce its impact is of great interest. MIT researchers have unveiled a new sound-absorbing silk fabric that promises to revolutionize quiet spaces. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has made significant breakthroughs in the field of sound absorption. Researchers have developed a special silk fabric that can effectively absorb sound and create cozy, quiet environments. The fabric, thinner than a human hair, contains a unique vibrating fiber that is activated when voltage is applied to it. This feature allows the fabric to be used to suppress sound waves in two different ways. The first method uses fabric vibrations to generate sound waves that cover and cancel out unwanted noise, similar to noise-canceling headphones. This p ... >>

New FLUKE 87V Digital Multimeter 20.04.2004

FLUKE Corporation has introduced a new 87V digital multimeter. A feature of the new device is the ability to measure real levels of PWM signals in motor drivers.

Variable voltages, frequency and alternating current are measured. The device has a built-in thermal sensor, thanks to which a decision is made whether the measured voltage or current at a given temperature is dangerous for the operation of the driver and motor.

The device has a magnetic suspension, thanks to which the operator can fix the device on any steel part, and his hands will be free. The bright backlight of the indicator allows you to work in poor lighting conditions.
