What Is An Atomic Clock?

The atomic clock is a kind of clock that utilizes atomic resonance frequency as its timekeeping feature. These clocks show the exact time and frequency standards and are identified as the primary standards for international time and manage and organize the frequency of the television broadcasts and GPS satellite services. The atomic clock uses the resonance frequency of atoms as its resonator. A resonator is operated by the frequency of the microwave electromagnetic radiation absorbed or emitted by the molecule or atom’s energy change. Thus an atomic clock generates standard frequencies. These are installed at various sites to show time signals. Alpha navigation transmitters and LORAN C. Atomic clocks are very useful in long wave and short wave broadcasting stations to deliver an exact frequency that can act as the standard frequency. Also, atomic clocks have been used in a long-baseline interferometer in radio-astronomy.

Technologies That Fight Global Warming

Global warming is a significant threat to people and the earth. It is an increase in the earth’s surface air and the oceans. Earth now finds it difficult to breathe because of the concentration of greenhouse gases. Greenhouse gases are essential to the earth’s environment. It effectively traps heat in the lower atmosphere and radiates the heat the planet needs. Without greenhouse gases, our earth’s temperature would be 0o F or -18oC instead of 57°F or 14°C. Are we aiding in the enhancement of the greenhouse gases or going against it and making it worse? Man has caused the most damage to greenhouse gases. Through the combustion of oil, coal, and gas, human activities have increased the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Pollution is the biggest human-made problem. Another main problem the cause of global warming is population. To fight global warming, scientists have found different ways to solve the problem. The use of technology in fighting global warming is one of the means to reduce global warming.

Use of Nanotechnolgy

People are very much astonished by the fact that people can engineer at the level that is not at all imagined. Nanotechnology provides the user to play with a variety of components present in the world. The nanoscience engraves certain unique features associated with the development of science. It revolves around certain intricate topics such as manufacturing at the nano level and then engineering components at the nano level. This may involve an improved skillset from the working community. The works of various researchers involve the use of nanotechnology in day to day life. The people worldwide may appreciate the use of Nanotechnology in production of carbon tubes used for various engineering applications if it is feasible. But it is known that nanotechnology’s use to produce such a small component is practically impossible, but this statement is proved wrong in recent years.

Fuel Cell Technology: Advantages and Disadvantages

In this age of technology, there is a development every minute in almost all the fields in one regard or the other. Such a significant result in a lot of alternate energy is the Fuel cell. A fuel cell, in simple terms, is an electrochemical energy generating device. It has been one of the most fascinating and interesting aspects of today’s world’s technology. Many things are yet to be developed in this field, and there are a huge scope and application for these Fuel Cells. These fuel cells are being under research by many people all around the world. Construction and Working There are many different types of fuel cells. But the basic construction and working of a fuel cell are the same, and the concept behind it is also the same. The Fuel cell works on the principle that energy is produced when some chemical reaction occurs. If this energy can be tapped, it can be converted into practical means. In a conventional fuel cell, the reaction occurs between hydrogen and oxygen, and water is formed. This is the primary chemical reaction that happens, and energy produced by this is tapped through proper channels and used for several applications.…

Automated Guided Vehicles

Automated Guided Vehicles help transport the raw materials, semi-finished products, and finished products within a workplace. Initially, in any industry or a workplace, the materials are transported from one work station to another work station manually or by using a vehicle that the human operates. Because of the manual interaction, the time taken for transporting the materials is high, and because of the increased time, the production rate of an industry comes down. To increase the production rate and utilize the resources like labor, machine efficiently in an industry, Automated Guided Vehicles have been brought into existence. The Automated Guided Vehicles cannot be installed in the workplace as such. It needs a lot of planning and design. This is because the Automated Guided Vehicles installation is costlier, and once installed, it would be difficult to change them. Thus, before installing the Automated Guided Vehicles, the Automated Guided Vehicles’ installation and movement region should be pre-determined. The layout of the company plays a vital role in the Automated Guided Vehicles system installation. Automated Guided Vehicles’ primary purpose is to reduce the travel time of the raw material or the workpiece. So the shortest route between the workstations has to be identified,…

The Stirling cycle – technology beyond expectation

The key code of a Stirling engine is that a downright calculate of gas is sealed within the machine. The Stirling cycle involves a cycle of check that mutation the hassle of the gas within the engine, causing it to do work. There are numerous properties of gasses that are risky to the venture of Stirling engines: If you have a rigid amount of gas in a rigid level of celestial and hoist the gas’s temperature, the hassle will improve. If you have a rigid amount of gas and compress it (decrease the level of its space), the gas temperature will improve. Let’s go through the piece part of the Stirling chain while looking at a simplified Stirling engine. One cylinder is heated by an outdoor heat bound (such as a fire), and the other is cooled by an outdoor cooling bound. The two cylinders’ gas chambers are allied, and the pistons are joined to apiece other mechanically by a linkage that determines how they will move about one another. You can add heat to the gas inside the heated cylinder (left), making it a bit hard. It compels the piston to move a little down. This is the part…

Happy 40th Anniversary to the First Computer Mouse!

A mouse (Not the pesky rodent!) is a pointing device, where it functions by detecting two-dimensional motion relative to its supporting surface. To be more precise, a mouse consists of an object that holds under one of the user’s hands, with one or more buttons. As you can see, the contemporary computer mouse has a wheel that allows the user to perform various system-dependent operations. Do you know that inventor Douglas Engelbart was creating the first computer mouse on Dec 9, 1968? After a glorious 40th anniversary years, Douglas said, “Although there’s been an explosion of technology in the past 4 decades, it hasn’t reached the level of potential he envisioned in the early 1960s yet!”
