The Kilauea volcano on the island of Hawaii is certainly the most active volcano on earth. It is followed by Etna in Sicily and Piton de la Fournaise on the island of Reunion. It is difficult to say which other volcanoes should come next in the ranking. However, this is how one might rank the… Continue reading The Most Active Volcanoes on Earth
The place of production of the pollen grain differs according to the plant: In gymnosperms (seed-producing plants), the pollen grain is produced in strobiles. While in angiosperms (flowering plants), the pollen grain is produced in flowers, specifically in the anther (the part of the stamen where pollen is produced). The anther is a kind of tissue-covered pouch that… Continue reading Where Do the Pollen Grains of Flowering Plants Develop?

The sun itself is a huge nuclear mechanism. It releases every day an amount of energy equal to that of millions of atomic bombs. A nuclear bomb will not leave the slightest trace on the sun and will not alter its activity. Moreover, since the solar atmosphere has a temperature of thousands of degrees, the… Continue reading What If We Shot a Nuclear Bomb Into the Sun?

This phenomenon, which seems completely illogical, was already observed by Aristotle himself. He noted that some inhabitants of present-day Turkey sprinkled the stakes of their palisades with hot water to safeguard them. Apparently, they did so because that way they froze faster. Francis Bacon and René Descartes also took note of this physics curiosity. Yet,… Continue reading Does Hot Water Really Freeze Faster Than Cold Water?
How to know if something floats in water? Easy, the density of the object should be less than that of the fluid. In the case of the human body, the average density is 0.95 g/ml. The density of water varies with temperature. At 4.0° C (39.2° F), the density of water is 1 g/ml. It… Continue reading How Much Salt Would I Need to Float in My Bathtub?
We will start by explaining the physical phenomenon on which the temperature that something can have depends. When the particles of an object move a lot, they generate heat, and the entity has a higher temperature. When particles move less, there is less heat, and the thing is colder. We can imagine a point where… Continue reading Highest and Lowest Temperature in the Universe?
What happens if you breathe pure oxygen: take a look at Divers Alert Network guidelines. Scuba equipment works by forcing compressed air into the lungs at the same pressure as the pressure of the surrounding water. The deeper you dive, the more air you use. For every 33 feet / 10 meters that you descend,… Continue reading Can We Breathe in an Environment of Pure Oxygen
