WHEAT GRASS JUICE – “THE GREEN BLOOD” HEALTH BENEFITS

Wheat grass is obtained as the green leaves produced by germinated wheat grains. This grass is rich in nutrients and proved as a highly beneficial supplement for human body. There are numerous benefits of the wheat grass. Wheat grass is mostly consumed as juice known as wheat grass juice. Researchers also call it ‘Green Blood’ because studies and research have shown that it works like nectar for blood related problems. It is a rich source for vitamin A, vitamin C and protein. It contains 3 times more protein as in equal amount of meat. Researchers claim that it can be…

MOBILE EXPLOSION – WHY MOBILE DEVICES CATCH FIRE AND EXPLODE

Many incidences have been reported around the world in past few years, when a mobile device turned into a bomb. In some cases result was turned into loss of life  and some cases reported where the users are seriously injured by the mobile explosion. So what makes the laptops, mobile phones and other mobile devices to catch fire and explode like a bomb. The main explosive component found behind the scene is the lithium ion power pack inside the devices.  Mobile phones, laptops and all other mobile devices require a power source. The battery pack inside a device energizes the…

LITHIUM ION SOLAR BATTERY – LITHIUM ION FOR SOLAR APPLICATIONS

Lithium Ion batteries are leading in wide applications for energy storage, especially in small portable devices. Lithium Ion battery started its journey in 1990s. Soon this battery gained popularity for various portable applications with its high power density and low self discharging nature as compared to Nickel Cadmium (NiCad/NiCd) and Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH). Lithium Ion considerably replaced the nickel cadmium and nickel hydride in small devices. Because of recycling convenience lithium ion batteries are also environment friendly as compared to NiCd and NiMH. Lithium Ion is a fast growing and widely accepted battery chemistry for various small applications. Recently…

BATTERY TYPES- TYPE OF BATTERIES FOR POWER STORAGE SYSTEMS

Battery types

Energy storage system is the backbone for any renewable energy power system. Not only a solar power system but every renewable energy system need an efficient, reliable, cost effective, safe, eco friendly and long lasting storage system. The storage system must be efficient as much as possible and capable to payback every cent paid for it. In this post we will discuss about solar battery options or Battery types suitable for solar storage system. Performance and durability of a storage system totally depends upon the batteries used for the purpose. A battery converts electrical energy into chemical energy and store…

STEPPER MOTORS – INTRODUCTION TO STEPPER MOTORS

Stepper Motors

Increasing demand of Automation, Robots, 3D Printers, CNC Machining leading to a demand of powerful, quick responding and accurate positioning system. For this purpose close loop servo systems are broadly used. To obtain desired positioning and accuracy, these systems have a feedback mechanism with encoders and sensors. The close loop servo systems are expensive and complex. In past few decade an another alternative came in existence as stepper drive system. This system is capable to maintain positional accuracy without any feedback mechanism. Since it can work in an open loop system. There are other more benefits of using stepper drive…

BUILD YOUR OWN SOLAR POWER SYSTEM FOR HOME – CALCULATIONS FOR SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

Increasing demand of energy in the world is waiting to be replaced by clean and cost effective sources of energy. Clean and cheap sources of energy are available as wind power, solar power, hydropower, tidal power with initial cost for setup. In this article we are discussing how to build your own solar power system for home in order to fulfill energy requirements. SOLAR POWER Sun the power house of the universe is providing energy free of cost to us. Rays coming from sun have packets of energy called photons. Heat energy from sun is also used to produce electricity,…

COMPOSITION AND RESOLUTION OF FORCES FOR RESULTANT FORCE

Composition and Resolution of Forces

Every object is said to be in a state. Basically there are two states, as Rest and Motion. In both the states, forces have the prime importance in keeping the object in a state, or changing the state of the object from rest to motion or vice-versa. So let’s study about force and methods of composition and resolution of forces for evaluating resultant force of number of forces acting simultaneously on a body   Force “Force is something which changes or tends to change the state of a body from rest to motion or vice-versa.” Unit of force is Newton,…

COMPRESSIBLE FLUID – AIR AS A COMPRESSIBLE FLUID

Air a compressible fluid, Everyone is familiar with the word ‘AIR’ and obviously no one is there who is not in influence of it. The word ‘EMPTY’ have no existence, unless it is concerned with vacuum. We can say empty means filled with air. Our surrounding atmosphere is filled with air, so the space around us is not empty, it is filled with air.   There are basically three states of matter, as solids, liquids and gases. These three states exist because of difference in inter-molecular force and gap between the molecules. In liquids, intermolecular force is less as compared…
