Physics of Raindrops: Why They’re Mathematically Impossible

Raindrops break the laws of physics and are mathematically impossible. When we are condensing water vapour from a gas to make liquids, every cubic centimeter volume of water we have converted releases energy just from its changes of volume and pressure, but in order to make each square centimeter of the surface of that water, an input of energy is required.

Plasmonics: Revolutionizing Light-based Technologies Via Electron Oscillations In Metals

For centuries, artists mixed silver and gold powder with glass to fabricate colorful windows to decorate buildings. The results were impressive, but they didn't have a scientific reason for how these ingredients together made stained glass. In the early 20th century, the physicist Gustav Mie figured out that the color of a metal nanoparticle is … Continue reading Plasmonics: Revolutionizing Light-based Technologies Via Electron Oscillations In Metals
