Radioactive decay[ edit ] Example of a radioactive decay chain from lead Pb to lead Pb.
No need to resort to insults, is there? Anon Fusion power works by merging two hydrogen isotopes, the energy that holds the two SINGLE isotopes together is higher than the amount of energy that holds the single helium atom together at the end, the biproduct of the reaction is the release of energy, significantly more than fission, please go back to GCSE physics.
You will find the weight of the former is more than the latter. This cracking fission is the source of usable energy. Fusion to helium is a energy consuming byproduct, just trash of this process. Maxx Scott To understand this the issue is binding energy. The binding energy of one hydrogen atom is greater than the binding energy of the one helium atom.
That is where the energy comes from. Its the same as fission, but since we are working with the other end of the periodic table or the chart of the nuclides the split atoms have less binding energy.
Nobody knows what to do with it, including the entire apparatus oozing as its atoms are progressively displaced by collision. Van Snyder Some people are betting on P-B11, but that is even more difficult. Solar energy is the main energy source for life on this planet, and if harnessed wisely, could provide for all the energy our civilization would ever need.
Billions upon billions have been spent on fossil fuel subsidies for already profitable companies to addict our civilization to polluting nonrenewable energy, when the same amount could already have established orbiting solar stations to supply an endless stream of energy for humanity.
At least, that was the hypothesized cost of space solar power back in the s and early s, but with space launch costs now going down, so too would the cost of building such power stations.
But if that seems too ambitious for the near term, progress is still being made in reducing the cost and increasing the efficiency of photovoltaics to capture solar power here on earth. Fusion energy is already providing a growing share of power for mankind, courtesy of our home star and human ingenuity.
Who could argue with that? Sign me up, Scotty. Send in your plans for those orbiting power stations right now. Make sure you get the patents sorted out.
Maybe Greenpeace would even sell their yacht. Then maybe you could get the Russians to put them into orbit for you, like they are doing with out astronauts to the Space Station. You gonna be rich! Get back to us, ya hear? Mike Richardson Yep, truly a well-reasoned and thoughtful response, which also ignored the literally more down-to-earth solar applications I discussed.
Apparently that blissful ignorance works for some folks, proudly marching us forward into the early 20th century. OWilson Your obtuse naive, smarmy and self evident, politically correct posts need to be questioned from time to time. I have little respect for stalkers and political trolls!Experiment 6: THE RATE LAWS OF AN IODINE CLOCK REACTION 59 Purpose: The rate law for the reaction of an “iodine clock” reaction is to be established.
It involves the determination of the order of reaction with respect to each of two reactants, as. My experience with Naturopathic Treatment of Cervical Dysplasia CIN III/HSIL Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia III (severe) High-Grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesions.
Lab #3: Method of Initial Rates: Iodine Clock Introduction The detailed system of steps in a reaction is called the reaction mechanism, and it is one of the principal aims of chemical kinetics to obtain information to aid in the elucidation of these mechanisms in order to better understand chemical processes - Method of Initial Rates Iodine Clock introduction.
A water‐compatible variant of a click‐like polymerization between alkynoates and secondary amines to form β‐aminoacrylate synthetic polyethylene glycol (PEG) based hydrogels was developed.
Cell culture experiments indicate cytocompatibility of these gels with >90 % viability retained in THP‐1 and NIH/3T3 cells after 72 hours in culture. Chemical Kinetics: The Method of Initial Rates Page 4 of 15 Part C: The Effect of a Catalyst upon Reaction Rate Catalysts increase the rate of a chemical reaction by providing a new pathway or mechanism through which a reaction proceeds that has a lower activation energy than that of the uncatalyzed reaction.
In this experiment, the rate law for a reaction is determined using the method of initial rates. The forms a blue starch-iodine complex. Thus, "∆t" is simply the time Reaction Kinetics: The Iodine Clock Reaction.
