Atomic Frequency Standard 4.1 How will an Atomic Clock Work? Atomic clock, also called Atomic frequency standard, from being invented, has a really amazing performance —— both stable and accurate. No one can deny that it has become a revolution of the timing instrument history. Atomic let us omit the sundries like “how long should a simple pendulum’s length be and whether it suits” and “whether the size of a diced crystal fits”. Atom is a natural genuine resonator which is almost never influenced by temperature and frictional effect.
The alcohol or mercury thermometer that are vastly used in the medical world today would not have existed had it not been for Galileo Galilei. Galileo Galilei invented the first thermometer by using the concept of air expansion by heat and contraction by cold. Only after that, other scientists came up with a more developed and accurate thermometer. One of them being Sir Isaac Newton. Years later, Gabriel Fahrenheit invented the first reliable mercury in which its scale is still used until today.
The Nuclear Renaissance Is nuclear power the most realistic alternative in an energy-constrained world? Is nuclear power the answer for a warming planet? As the debate rages on, proponents to nuclear power insist that there should be a nuclear revival to meet future energy consumption, which is said to rise to over 61% in 2050 (World Energy Council, 2015, p. 17). This increase in percentage is due to the predicted rise in population, which means that an adequate source of sustainable energy is required for future electricity. Moreover, horrific incidents from the past like the Three Mile Island in 1979 and Chernobyl in 1986 still implant fear in people’s minds.
In 1920 Rolex introduced the water resisting watch and after 11 years they introduced the self winding. Both these 2 innovations played a major role at settling the industry by making it a symbol of precision and technology. After nearly 30 years the next milestone was set. In 1956 and 1957 Jaeger LeCoultur and Hamilton presented the first battery powered watch and the alarm wrist watch. This was incredibly important to the industry because it opened o whole new opportunity field for the watch makers .Now the products would have been easier and cheaper to produce and the industry could shift towards mass production .
Nuclear transmutation is a budding technology that is used in some countries to hasten their geological storage methods. Nuclear transmutation is an interesting technology where energy is used to trigger the fission of nuclear byproducts in order to decrease their half lives. This allows for a much faster neutralization of radioactivity, which would decrease the risks associated with nuclear storage. This process can be very beneficial, as it decreases the long-term dangers associated with spent-fuel pools and prevents any leaks from providing lasting damage (Ravier). This is perhaps the most directly related solution to the claim, as it offers to solve the problem of the longevity of nuclear fallout and radiation with minimal risk.
They want to increase unrelated NASA toy sales by twenty-two percent and utilize creative innovation to expand productivity. The managers also want to create a new technology based action toys, reduce company-wide costs, and carbon footprint. To jump-start sales and growth, Keith Wisternick and his production team chose three courses of action for production. The options are, produce 1 million Payload Nine Toys or Moon Mission to Jupiter’s Europa (MMTJE1) for Christmas 2017, manufacture 1 million Payload Nine toys for Christmas 2017 and 1 million MMTJE1 for Christmas of 2018, or produce to 1.5 million MMTJE1 toys for Christmas 2018. A Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) analysis tool as well as setting short-term goals and objectives will be used to determine which toys to roll out during the holiday seasons.
The radio and telecommunication have also been improved (NASA), space has changed our life, and without the invention of the satellite, there won 't be Internet, no communication, no international trade, and no economy… One of the Long-term effects of this race would be that the government started to spend more money on education because of the great enthusiasm with science that society had because of this race (University Nebraska). As we can see, the Space Race of 1950-1960s has been a huge period of technological advancement; it improved the economy, allowed great minds to be educated, and of course worldwide communications which made it easier to solve political problems such as the Cold
The Clock’s Impact The invention of the clock helped to bring a massive change not only in America but other countries around the world. However, it was not until the Industrial Revolution that they began to receive popularity due to its efficiency in being able to tell when the steam train would arrive. In class, we talked about the influence trains had on time and how it impacted people to direct their schedule according to the change in time rather than looking up to the sun. Trains were a major improvement in reducing the time needed to reach a certain point or destination, and helped to bring a new type of transportation that was not only fast but efficient as well. The clock helped people to adapt to the new change and ease them in the process of getting comfortable with work from that point on.
One of the most recent advancements in todays’ atomic clocks is the addition of a laser cooling system. This system improves the signal-to-noise ratio and also decreases the uncertainty in the clock signal improving the precision of time measurement. Cesium fountain clock, Rubidium atomic clock, Strontium atomic clock and Mercury ion clock are some of the atomic clocks that have been developed up to now. The difference between these clocks is the element used and also the means of detecting the energy level
Now mechanisation has come and the speed has gone up so also the quality and quantity. If the cost of manual construction is compared with latest mechanised construction, it has come at a cost. Delhi Metro has been constructed at a speed and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation tried to achieve quality and quantity and was successful to a large extent but at an additional cost. There are some people who are good in Mathematics and apply it in the works without considering its implications. If a work of ‘A’ quantities and ‘B’ specifications (quality) is to be completed in two years and its cost is ‘X’, as per their calculation, it can be completed in one year also at the same cost as there is no increase in the quantity or deviation in the quality.
