Focus Description:

You have two dice in your hand. Throw them on the table. The bottom faces of the cubes are not visible to you. Take the cubes and show these faces to the viewer. Let him add up the glasses you cannot see. Put the cubes aside and correctly name the required sum of the two lower faces.

Focus secret:

You need to know that on dice, the sum of the opposite sides is always seven. If there are 2 points on one side, then there will be 5 on the other. You can see the top side of the cubes.

Let's say there are 4 and 1 on your side, that is, in total - 5. And the total sum of the two opposite sides on both dice is 14. So, to name the amount known to the viewer, subtract 14 from 5. Name it - 9. After all, on the faces the dice that the spectator saw were 3 and 6 points.

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 ... >>

Magnetic Power Bank 5000mAh 14.06.2024

Huawei introduces a convenient and multifunctional charger to the market - Huawei SuperCharge All-in-One Magnetic Power Bank. This magnetic battery allows you to quickly and conveniently charge your Huawei phone anywhere, anytime. With a thickness of just 11,26 mm and a weight of 141 grams, this portable power bank fits easily into a pocket or bag, making it ideal for travel and everyday use.

The battery is compatible with various fast charging protocols such as SCP, UFCS and PD, making it ideal for a wide range of devices. The power bank is also compatible with Huawei phones that support wireless charging. ... >>

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 ... >>

Inexpensive way to clean the air from carbon dioxide 15.06.2018

Specialists from the Canadian company Carbon Engineering have developed a method that allows carbon dioxide to be extracted directly from the atmosphere using a cycle of chemical reactions. According to the creators of the technology, its distinguishing feature is low costs compared to other methods.

Carbon dioxide obtained with the help of new technology can become the basis of fuel. Today, there are several methods for obtaining fuel from CO2: for this, special membranes are used to separate oxygen and carbon monoxide, as well as specially designed catalysts.

The method proposed by Canadian engineers is not the first in this area, there are many ways to get CO2 from the atmosphere. However, most of these technologies are expensive: according to various estimates, the cost of obtaining a ton of gas can range from $600 to $94. Representatives of Carbon Engineering say that the gas produced by their technology will cost between $232 and $XNUMX per ton.

The authors of the new method propose to collect air saturated with carbon dioxide using special structures reminiscent of modern cooling towers (cooling towers). Air is pumped inside with the help of fans and interacts with the alkaline solution. The resulting liquid is frozen, and then gradually heated, bringing to the consistency of a thick suspension. The substance goes through a cycle of chemical reactions, interacting with slaked lime, then carbon dioxide is released. It can be used in the production of gasoline and diesel fuel.

According to engineers, taking into account all the costs, such fuel will be more expensive than conventional gasoline. At the same time, its producers will still be able to compete with enterprises that receive fuel using standard methods: the price of "ordinary" gasoline includes high environmental taxes, and their volume is constantly growing. Carbon Engineering has already tested the technology at a small facility in British Columbia. If the company manages to find sponsors, the engineers plan to build a large CO2 plant using the new technology no later than 2021.
