2013-05-12 09:39:38

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports — Your Universe Online A team of French and German researchers has designed and successfully tested a prototype “invisibility cloak” capable of hiding objects from heat, according to research published in Friday´s edition of Physical Review Letters. According to Timur Moon of the International Business Times, the device features a flat, five-centimeter wide area at its center, which was “impervious” to the heat that...

Researchers Find Earth Center Is 1800 Degrees Hotter Than Thought
2013-04-26 09:04:03

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The temperature near the Earth's core is approximately 10,800 degrees Fahrenheit [1] a team of scientists has determined. This is 1,800 degrees hotter than in a previous experiment conducted 20 years prior. The new measurements confirm geophysical models that the temperature difference between the solid core and the mantle above must be at least 1,500 degrees F to explain why the Earth has a magnetic field. The team was even able to...

Heat Therapy
2012-12-31 12:08:31

Heat therapy is a treatment in the medical field to relieve pain and improve over health. It can be a therapy used only once, repeatedly in rehabilitation sessions, or as part of an after-care routine in sports medicine. It can be delivered in many forms with success in all. How the Heat Helps As heat is introduced to the area, the temperature will increase beginning from the outer layer and moving deeper into the tissues. After the change in temperature, the blood vessels in the area of...

Temperature Examination
2012-11-26 23:06:36

Taking a patient's temperature is an initial part of a full clinical examination. The moment the medical provider comes within inches of the patient’s skin, they can tell if there is a change in the patient’s temperature. Heat radiates from a febrile patient, skin becomes clammy when cardiac output is reduced, and cold skin can be an ominous sign when combined with other negative findings. Temperature is an important indicator for patient status. How the Temperature is Attained...

The bolometer, invented in 1878 by Samuel Pierpont Langley, measures the energy of incident electromagnetic radiation. It consists of an absorptive element connected to a heat sink through a thermal link. The absortive element raises its temperature above that of the heat sink when radiation impinges on it. The higher the energy the higher the temperature rises. Old bolometers used metals while newer ones used semiconductors and superconductors as the absorptive elements. Bolometers can...

Condensation is the change of the physical state of matter from a gaseous form into liquid form. When the transition of matter happens from gaseous to solid directly, it is known as deposition. Condensation occurs when a vapor is cooled or compressed to its dew point. Water vapor that naturally condenses on cold surfaces into liquid is called dew. Water vapor will only condense on another surface when the temperature of the surface is cooler than the temperature of the water vapor. Water...
