Robotics is the fast emerging technology today. Robots are being designed to be used for various activities from daily domestic chores to military operations. These Robots are designed based on the idea of Artificial Intelligence.What is Artificial Intelligence?A machine is initially developed to take instructions from the user and process it according to a pre-designed program and give the output. Whereas if this machine can do something more extraordinary, other than simply taking the instructions and matching with previously fed data, that would be great. Such a thought is the basis for Artificial Intelligence. This can be understood as the ... Read More

Knowledge base
Updated on 30-Jul-2019 22:30:24
A Light bulb generally has a wire connected to it. But this levitating light bulb just hovers in the air above a wooden block and draws power from it. This bulb even rotates if spun. This wooden block is of course connected to the switchboard for power.How Did It Hover?This levitating light bulb makes the look interesting when it just hovers gracefully above the wooden block while it glows. As it is evident from the basic principles of magnetism that like poles repel, the bottom of the bulb contains a magnet and lets it hover on the wooden block which ... Read More

How can we locate the Quiescent point of a transistor?

Knowledge base
Updated on 30-Jul-2019 22:30:24
The Q-point or quiescent point of a transistor is considered during amplification, as this is the point of amplification where the signal is completely amplified without any kind of attenuation. This is located when the transistor is operated in the active region.Locating On A GraphWhen a value for the maximum possible collector current is considered, that point will be present on the Y-axis, which is nothing but the Saturation point. As well, when a value for the maximum possible collector-emitter voltage is considered, that point will be present on the X-axis, which is the Cutoff point.When a line is drawn ... Read More

What is a Half Wave Dipole Antenna?

Knowledge base
Updated on 30-Jul-2019 22:30:24
The dipole antenna is a widely popular antenna that is used mostly for the reception. The dipole antenna is cut and bent for effective radiation. The length of the total wire, which is being used as a dipole, equals half of the wavelength (i.e., l = λ/2). Such an antenna is called as a half-wave dipole antenna, also known as Hertz antenna. This antenna which is mostly used in radio receivers operates is around 3KHz to 300GHz.Construction & Working of Half-Wave DipoleThe edge of the dipole has maximum voltage. This voltage is alternating (AC) in nature. At the positive peak ... Read More

What is the role of taxonomy in biodiversity conservation?

Knowledge base
Updated on 30-Jul-2019 22:30:24
The classification of things while describing and naming them can be understood as Taxonomy. This helps to identify any developmental and experimental work that needs to be done.Simply put, why would anyone mix the shoes in shoe rack with the bed sheets in a cupboard? Taxonomy is our inheritance where we define the places to which they belong. In the same way, it provides an easy to identify the categories of the species so as to have an idea of the existing conditions and to plan necessary measures for the biodiversity conservation.What is Bio-diversity Conservation?Bio-diversity is regarded as the foundation ...
