Answer by A-cronos
Do an electroscope (wait I know it sounds hard but it isn’t).

Take a round metallic box (like a cookie box or something). Paint it on the outside (just to make it look better). Make a hole in one of the sides. Take a Clip and brake it so you have two even parts. Then take play dough and cover the hole with it. Insert each part of the clip into the play dough so that the tips are near each other, but make sure that the parts are touching each other in any place. If this is done correctly the parts of the clip will be seen inside the box. On each part (inside the box) hang a rectangular portion (doesn’t have to be very big) of aluminum foil. Find a silk cloth (or a material that produces static electricity well enough) and a piece of plastic. Rub the plastic against the cloth, then touch the two parts of the clip (simultaneously) that are outside the box. You will see that the two portions of aluminum foil will move creating an inverse V, repealing each other. Hope it helps. If you need more info, e-mail me. Trust me its easy I did it when I was in 6th grade.

Question by Marga: Any ideas for an Investigatory Science Project concerning Physics?
So, our group already submitted a proposal but it was rejected (proposal was about mobile phones as device activator). Now, our group decided to create individual proposals.

Please suggest. It can be about modifying devices, creating new devices or comparing devices as long as it is related to a Physics principle.

Answers are very much appreciated. Thank you.

RFID for people? How do you modify it to allow personal privacy controls?

Tesla’s earth-based power grid — how would you experiment with his notes to engineer a solution? How might you then test the system for viability?

How could you project a larger iPhone screen for people with vision difficulties: not a larger font, but actually a larger display area within the same form factor?

How would you modify the hand-held displays for 3-D use? Think in actual 3-D, such as binocular cameras and hologram display.

Could you combine a tidal turbine (power production) with a desalination plant?

What can you do about the back end of the nuclear power life cycle? Can you find a long-term use for the “waste” that is too “hot” for safety, but too “cool” for typical power production? For instance, is there something you could do with the waste heat? Some way to concentrate the fuel for productive use? What do you do with the non-emitting end products of fission?

Question by Joy: What is a good Physics Science fair project?
Just need some sort of idea for one. It must be Physics related, nothing involving expensive materials (Under total seems the most reasonable, I’m not building a nuclear reactor here).
I’d really just like some various ideas. I’ll go search for some myself but I figured if someone on here had a brain blast on an idea I’d like to hear it.

Question by Meaghan: Need project idea for THE ALCHEMIST BY PAUL COELHO?
I need an idea for a physical representation for the book The Alchemist by Paul Coelho. If you read it, could you give me an idea? I can’t think of anything!! By physical representation, I mean a painting/drawing/sculpture/photo anything, but i can’t draw or paint so thats out, and besides, I want something REALLY creative. It has to have something to do with some idea/moment/relationship in the book. Please help!

Best answer:

Answer by Jen.
I suppose if you could do something representing a dream, as Santiago’s dream of treasure in Egypt is what sets him off on his personal journey and really what the whole book is about.
I am also not a creative sort all I can think of is using paper mache to make a map of Egypt with treasure on it, then maybe cotton wool underneath to show the clouds representing the dream he had.
Sorry may be no use of all, as I said I’m not creative.
Good lcuk.

Question by baykid415: Project about Hinduism? I need to find out about social and political characteristics of the religion?
Also, what is the view on compassion? What are their main beliefs on how you should act?

Best answer:

Answer by Siva
Hinduism, the world’s oldest religion, has no beginning–it precedes recorded history. It has no human founder. It is a mystical religion, leading the devotee to personally experience the Truth within, finally reaching the pinnacle of consciousness where man and God are one. Hinduism has four main denominations–Saivism, Shaktism, Vaishnavism and Smartism.

Sanatana Dharma, meaning “Eternal or Universal Righteousness” is the original name of what is now called Hinduism. Sanatana Dharma comprises of spiritual laws which govern the human existence.

NINE FACTS

The following nine facts, though not exhaustive, offer a simple summary of Hindu spirituality or about Hinduism.

1 Hindus believe in a one, all-pervasive Supreme Being who is both immanent and transcendent, both Creator and Unmanifest Reality.
2 Hindus believe in the divinity of the four Vedas, the world’s most ancient scripture, and venerate the Agamas as equally revealed. These primordial hymns are God’s word and the bedrock of Sanatana Dharma, the eternal religion.
3 Hindus believe that the universe undergoes endless cycles of creation, preservation and dissolution.
4 Hindus believe in karma, the law of cause and effect by which each individual creates his own destiny by his thoughts, words and deeds.
5 Hindus believe that the soul reincarnates, evolving through many births until all karmas have been resolved, and moksha, liberation from the cycle of rebirth, is attained. Not a single soul will be deprived of this destiny.
6 Hindus believe that divine beings exist in unseen worlds and that temple worship, rituals, sacraments and personal devotionals create a communion with these devas (divine beings) and God.
7 Hindus believe that an enlightened master, or satguru, is essential to know the Transcendent Absolute, as are personal discipline, good conduct, purification, pilgrimage, self-inquiry, meditation and surrender in God.
8 Hindus believe that all life is sacred, to be loved and revered, and therefore practice ahimsa, noninjury, in thought, word and deed.
9 Hindus believe that no religion teaches the only way to salvation above all others, but that all genuine paths are facets of God’s Light, deserving tolerance and understanding.

GOD AND LORDS IN HINDUISM

God is a one being, yet we understand Him in three perfections: Absolute Reality, Pure Consciousness and Primal Soul. As Absolute Reality, God is unmanifest, unchanging and transcendent, the Self God, timeless, formless and spaceless. As Pure Consciousness, God is the manifest primal substance, pure divine love and light flowing through all form, existing everywhere in time and space as infinite intelligence and power. God is all and in all, great beyond our conception, a sacred mystery that can be known in direct communion.

Hindus believe in one Supreme Being. In the Hindu pantheon there are said to be three hundred and thirty-three million Lords(divine beings). The plurality of Lords are perceived as divine creations of that one Being. So, Hinduism has one supreme God, but it has an extensive hierarchy of Lords.

Hinduism views existence as composed of three worlds. The First World is the physical universe; the Second World is the subtle astral or mental plane of existence in which the devas, angels and spirits live; and the Third World is the spiritual universe of the Mahadevas, “great shining beings,” our Hindu Lords. Hinduism is the harmonious working together of these three worlds.

Hinduism is a family of four main denominations – Saivism, Shaktism, Vaishnavism, Smartism – under a divine hierarchy of Mahadevas. These intelligent beings have evolved through eons of time and are able to help mankind without themselves having to live in a physical body. These great Mahadevas, with their multitudes of angelic devas, live and work constantly and tirelessly for the people of our religion, protecting and guiding them, opening new doors and closing unused ones.

SIGNIFICANCE OF HINDUISM
Hinduism is unique among the world’s religions. I boldly proclaim it the oldest religion in the world. To begin with, it is mankind’s oldest spiritual declaration, the very fountainhead of faith on the planet. Hinduism’s venerable age has seasoned it to maturity. It is the only religion, to my knowledge, which is not founded in a single historic event or prophet, but which itself proceeds recorded history. Hinduism has been called the “cradle of spirituality,” and the “mother of all religions,” partially because it has influenced virtually every major religion and partly because it can absorb all other religions, honor and embraces their scriptures, their saints, and their philosophy. This is possible because Hinduism looks compassionately on all genuine spiritual effort and knows unmistakably that all souls are evolving toward union with the Divine, and all are destined, without exception, to achieve spiritual enlightenment and liberation in this or a future life.
