Difference Between Solids And Liquids Explored Through New Pitch Drop Experiment
2014-07-03 08:17:15

Queen Mary, University of London Physicists at Queen Mary University of London have set up a new pitch drop experiment for students to explore the difference between solid and liquids. Known as the 'world's longest experiment', the set up at the University of Queensland was famous for taking ten years for a drop of pitch – a thick, black, sticky material – to fall from a funnel. Publishing in the journal Physics Education, the design of QMUL's trial is different to both...

Pitch Drops That Got The World Talking
2014-05-01 03:11:19

Institute of Physics In light of recent results from the "world's longest experiment", spanning more than 90 years, at the University of Queensland, a group of researchers from Trinity College Dublin explain the background behind their own pitch-drop experiment in this month's Physics World and offer an explanation as to why their research hit the headlines in 2013. Capturing the release of a drop of pitch – a thick, black, sticky material – from a funnel on camera seems mundane,...

When deciding what materials to use in building something, determining how those materials respond to stress and strain is often the first task. A material’s macroscopic, or bulk, properties in this area — whether it can spring back into shape, for example — is generally the product of what is happening on a microscopic scale. When stress causes a material’s constituent molecules to rearrange in a way such that they can't go back to their original positions, it is known as “plastic...

Capillaries Will Measure Diffusion, Help In More Efficient Medical Treatment

Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences How strongly do two dissolved analytes react with each other? Such information is of paramount importance not only in chemistry and molecular biology, but also in medicine or pharmacy, where it is used, i.a., to determine optimal drug doses. A method developed in the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw will allow for determining diffusion coefficients of analytes in fluids and...

Cilia Use Different Molecular Motors For Different Jobs
2014-01-11 08:19:58

Brown University Cilia are one of nature’s great multipurpose tools. The tiny, hair-like fibers protrude from cell membranes and perform all kinds of tasks in all kinds of creatures, from helping clear debris from human lungs to enabling single-celled organisms to swim. Now, physicists from Brown University have discovered something that could help scientists understand how cilia have been adapted for so many varied tasks. The study, led by graduate student Ilyong Jung, looked at the...
