By Eric Scerri

While was once radium came across? who're Dmitri Mendeleev and Glenn T. Seaborg? Who came upon uranium’s radioactivity? Which point comes in handy for courting the age of Earth? And why doesn’t gold have a systematic identify? 30-Second parts provides you with the very foundations of chemical wisdom, explaining concisely the 50 most vital chemical parts. This e-book makes use of worthy glossaries and tables to quickly tune your wisdom of the opposite sixty eight components and the relationships among them all.

The Book of Nothing: Vacuums, Voids, and the Latest Ideas about the Origins of the Universe

What conceptual blind spot saved the traditional Greeks (unlike the Indians and Maya) from constructing an idea of 0? Why did St. Augustine equate nothingness with the satan? What tortuous capability did 17th-century scientists hire of their makes an attempt to create a vacuum? And why do modern quantum physicists think that the void is admittedly seething with subatomic job?

Below TN, the antiferromagnetic spin state is described by an incommensurate spin density wave (ISDW) and the spin flip transition takes place at a122 K (= Tsf), below which the spins of chromium become parallel to the wave vector.
