Hi;



In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

Re: General Quiz

Hi;

The Answer #6613 is correct. Neat work, bobbym!

#6615. Name the person : He has been called the "father of observational astronomy", the "father of modern physics", the "father of scientific method", and the "father of science". In about 1593, he constructed a thermometer, using the expansion and contraction of air in a bulb to move water in an attached tube.

#6616. Name the first electric clothes washer sold commercially in the United States.  Produced by the Chicago-based Hurley Electric Laundry Equipment Company, it is believed to be the first electrically powered washer ever manufactured, crediting Hurley as the inventor of the first automatic washing machine.

Re: General Quiz

Hi;

Both the Answers, #6617 and #6618, are correct. Excellent, bobbym!

#6619. Name a type of remote-sensing thermometer used to measure the temperature of a surface. Various forms of it have historically existed. In the modern usage, it is a device that from a distance determines the temperature of a surface from the spectrum of the thermal radiation it emits.

#6620. Name an instrument used for measuring ionizing radiation used widely in applications such as radiation dosimetry, radiological protection, experimental physics and the nuclear industry. It detects ionizing radiation such as alpha particles, beta particles and gamma rays using the ionization effect produced in a tube; which gives its name to the instrument. In wide and prominent use as a hand-held radiation survey instrument, it is perhaps one of the world's best-known radiation detection instruments.

#6621. Name the English physicist, and Nobel Prize in Physics laureate (5 December 1903 - 9 August 1969) for his development of the photographic method of studying nuclear processes and for the resulting discovery of the pion (pi-meson), a subatomic particle.

#6622. Name an an elementary particle similar to the electron, with an electric charge of -1 e and a spin of 1/2, but with a much greater mass. It is classified as a lepton. As is the case with other leptons, it is not believed to have any sub-structure - that is, it is not thought to be composed of any simpler particles.
