Difference between gravity and gravitation
February 27, 2015
What is the difference between force of gravity and universal gravitational constant?
CLEOPHAS - Kenya (25796)
Gravity is a force pulling objects toward the Earth. It is an approximation of gravitation, which is the attraction between objects.
In the Cavendish Experiment, the gravitational force between two masses is measured to find the constant G.
See Gravity and Gravitation for more information on those subjects.
Neighbor blasts loud music non-stop
February 25, 2015
I have this neighbor kid, who non stop for 10 months now has been pounding his powerful sound system thru my house. this has caused me health problems and I had to move. the police have been in their house and told me they have gigantic speakers angled at my place, only a few feet between homes. the kid turns the sound off and pounds the treble, bass and with low frequency cd's he's downloaded or whatever crap and continuously cranks it. do have any advice what to do in this situation. the police seem to helpless.
- Canada (25792)
I'm sorry to hear that you've had such a hassle with the neighbor's loud noise. Although it may not change things, but it is worth talking to him and his parents about the loud noise. Sometimes people don't realize such loud noise affects other people.
I find it surprising that the police can't do anything about it. I know that in most communities, excessive noise from a barking dog can result in a fine. I would assume there is some law in your community about excessive noise from music. Perhaps the police don't want to bother. It would be worthwhile checking with city representatives about laws on excessive noise.
Another route is to talk to a lawyer to see if any action can be taken to stop the noise--like a lawsuit.
So, first try talking to the people, then check to see what laws are being broken, and finally as a last resort look into some legal action.
Best wished on solving your problem, There is no reason to have someone disrupt your life with excessive noise.
Is polluted water a suspension or solution?
February 24, 2015
IS POLLUTED WATER A COLLOID SUSPENSION OR A SOLUTION I NEED TO KNOW I HAVE A TEST SOON PLEASE HELP
nekopockygurl - Japan (25787)
The causes of polluted water can be complex.
Usually polluted water is a mixture of dirty material. Some chemicals can dissolve in the water to make the pollution a solution. Materials in the water that could create a colloid suspension would consist of particles that do not settle.
Doing a free online course in public speaking
February 24, 2015
I am interesting in doing a free online course in public speaking.
juliet - Barbados (25789)
You really can't learn to speak well through an online course. Public speaking requires practice in front of a live audience.
A good way to learn public speaking is through Toastmasters. Check the Bridgeton Barbados Toastmaster website to get some information. There is no obligation for attending a meeting to see what it is all about.
I hope that helps you.
Sensing spirits in photos
February 23, 2015
Hello, I was wondering if a sixth sense would include being able to see spirits in photos. I almost immediately find a ghost or spirit in images. I can send some obvious ones over.
Rebecca - USA (25786)
The 6th sense is more concerned with sensing future and past events. See Sensing Spirits for information that might be about sensing spirits in photos.
Which is more polar water or alcohol?
February 22, 2015
which is more polar water or alcohol? or are they same
- USA (25779)
Water is more polar because it has opposite signs on both the ends. Also, water doesn't have the non-polar carbon-carbon bonds.
Insulation for ESP casings
February 21, 2015
I want to know if the thermal insulation of ESP casing mandatory.
Will ESP performance get affected for non insulation and how/ why?
Virendra - India (25776)
The insulation for electrostatics is not necessarily thermal insulation. Rather is is electrical insulation. That means it is made of nonconducting materials.
If items are not insulated, there is the possibility of electrical conduction, which you may not want.
Very interesting website
February 20, 2015
This is a very interesting website
I love every bit of it
Flora - Namibia (25775)
I am glad you enjoy it. Best wishes for a successful life.
First year chemistry lessons
February 19, 2015
how to carry out accurate and quality first year chemistry 1A ,Introduction to biology and physics practicals in the LABORATORY.
Robson - Namibia (25773)
See the lessons in Chemistry for the basics. We'll be having Chemistry experiments soon.
Likewise, lessons and experiments in Biology will be coming son.
Best wishes for success in your studies.
Why aren't humana as tall as plants?
February 19, 2015
why is it that human beings are not as tall as plants and when and how can human beings reproduce asexually
Valentine - Nigeria (25774)
Most plants are much shorter than humans. However, there are many trees that are taller. The height of animals and plants depends on how they can get their food. Tree grow taller so they can have more access to sunlight.
What is atmospheric pressure?
February 18, 2015
what is atmospheric pressure?
how can force change a position?
- India (25771)
Pressure is force divided by area.
Atmospheric pressure is the weight of a column of air divided by the surface area of the column. For example, kg per square meter.
See Pressure in Fluids for more information.
If a force acting on an object is strong enough to overcome resistance, such as friction, the object will move and accelerate, according to F = ma.
Applications of thunder and lightning
February 16, 2015
what are the applications of thunder power generation also about lightning
hima bindu - India (25770)
Thunder is simply the sound that is created from lightning. It has no real application.
Some have tried to harness the power from lightning. A major problem is that lightning strikes are not very predictable.
Finding volume of irregular objects
February 11, 2015
i send u greetings.my question is, how is the experiment "finding the volume of an irregular objects "important 1).globally
(2).in Education (3).in the world of work.Thank you.
- Ghana (25761)
A major purpose in wanting to find the volume of an irregular object is to help determine the material that the object is made of.
For example, if you have an irregular object that is supposed to be 100% gold, you can find its volume and compare its weight with the weight of the same volume of gold. If there was some other material mixed with the gold, the weight would be different, proving that it is not 100% gold.
Knowing this method can be important in education, as well as in business.

The EducatorLabs team loves every opportunity to share educational material with others. Fun and engaging educational material is all the more welcome when it comes to subjects that may prove more challenging for some people, such as finances! We recently collected a handful of excellent online financial resources that we feel are appropriate for students of all ages. And, we thought they may be of interest to you, so we’re passing them along.
Have a look at our collection and feel free to share and post (maybe here: http://www.school-for-champions.com/finances/resources.htm?) as many as you’d like:
Financial Resource Collection for Students of All Ages
Money Quizzes | MyMoney.gov
Finance in the Classroom: Lesson Plans and Activities
Financial Literacy Lesson Plans

Thanks for the resources. I added them to Personal Finance Resources, along with a reference to Educator Labs.
Where is TQM used?
February 11, 2015
I would like to know some of these questions...
For what type of business is it designed?
What does the business need to do to obtain it?
Which businesses had or have this system or prize?
valeria - Mexico (25767)
TQM can be used for both for profit and non-profit businesses. The idea is to improve the quality of products and services delivered to customers, such that they are satisfied and want to do repeat business. But also by improving the processes, the business will reduce wasteful practices and have better profits.
