Planets and their Satellites (Moons)
Science and Tech / July 26, 2018

There are total 8 planets in our solar system & all the planets revolve around the sun in the anticlockwise direction i.e. West to East except Venus & Uranus, they both revolve in the clockwise direction i.e. East to West. Inner planet or Terrestrial Planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars. Outer planet or Jovian planet : Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. List of planets according to their Size: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Earth, Venus, Mars, Mercury. Dwarf Planets: Pluto, Ceres, Eris, Makemake, Haumea. The Solar System’s planets and officially recognized dwarf planets are known to be orbited by 194 natural satellites, or moons. 19 moons in the Solar System are large enough to be gravitationally rounded, and thus would be considered planets or dwarf planets if they were in direct orbit around the Sun. Moons are classed in two separate categories according to their orbits: regular moons, which have prograde orbits (they orbit in the direction of their planets’ rotation) and lie close to the plane of their equators, and irregular moons, whose orbits can be pro- or retrograde (against the direction of their planets’ rotation) and often lie at extreme angles to their planets’ equators. Irregular moons are probably minor planets…

Solar Planets, their distance from Sun and order
Science and Tech / July 23, 2018

The planets in our solar system each occupy their own orbits around the Sun. They orbit the star in ellipses, which means their distance to the sun varies depending on where they are in their orbits. When they get closest to the Sun, it’s called perihelion, and when it’s farthest away, it’s called aphelion. So to talk about how far the planets are from the sun is a difficult question, not only because their distances constantly change, but also because the spans are so immense — making it hard for a human to grasp. For this reason, astronomers often use a term called astronomical unit, representing the distance from the Earth to the Sun. Below we have listed each planets with their Approx Average Distance from Sun along with Minimum and Maximum Distances.

Atomic Numbers of Elements
Science and Tech / March 9, 2018

The atomic number or proton number (symbol Z) of a chemical element is the number of protons found in the nucleus of an atom. It is identical to the charge number of the nucleus. The atomic number uniquely identifies a chemical element. In an uncharged atom, the atomic number is also equal to the number of electrons. The sum of the atomic number Z and the number of neutrons, N, gives the mass number A of an atom. Since protons and neutrons have approximately the same mass (and the mass of the electrons is negligible for many purposes) and the mass defect of nucleon binding is always small compared to the nucleon mass, the atomic mass of any atom, when expressed in unified atomic mass units (making a quantity called the “relative isotopic mass”), is within 1% of the whole number A. As of August 2017, 118 chemical elements are identified. A chemical element or element is a species of atoms having the same number of protons in their atomic nuclei. Therefore, the elements can be listed by the number of protons in the atom of each element as listed below in alphabetic order. You can use the search box…

You will be surprised to know these about fidget spinners
Science and Tech / November 13, 2017

What are fidget spinners A fidget spinner is a device that consists of a ball-bearing in the center of a multi-lobed (typically two or three) flat structure made from metal or plastic designed to spin along its axis with little effort.

Why is it called Mouse
Science and Tech / June 20, 2016

They are slowly disappearing. However they haven’t disappeared completely yet. The connection Wire with the Computer mouse is still there. Computer mouse will soon become wireless in future. If that happens(and it will), then the name mouse should be changed. Because the reason behind such a name is the tail of a mouse. The wire which connects computer with computer mouse resembles with real mouse(living). The engineers who had designed and developed(invented) mouse, had noticed the similarity. They thought it looked like tail of a mouse. So they named the newly invented device mouse. From then this device is called mouse by the world. Now it is the age of wireless devices. Wireless mouse is also available at the market now a days. We call them mouse with or without the tails.
