Discovery of a law of friction leads to a material that minimizes energy loss

Posted by in categories: chemistry, energy, engineering, law

The fundamental laws of friction remain a mystery to this day.

Researchers at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering have discovered a fundamental friction law that is leading to the design of two-dimensional materials capable of minimizing energy loss, according to a press release from the institution published on Thursday.

Engineers developed a breakthrough method to generate hydrogen gas in one-step process

Posted by in categories: chemistry, energy, nanotechnology

The method requires only visible light and no external heating.

Hydrogen sulfide, infamous for its aroma of rotten eggs, is known to be highly poisonous and corrosive — especially in wastewater applications. Petrochemical plants and other industries make thousands of tons of this gas every year as a byproduct of various processes that separate sulfur from petroleum, natural gas, coal, and other products.

Now, Rice University engineers and scientists have devised a new way for such petrochemical industries to turn the noxious gas into “high-demand” hydrogen gas.

One-stroke is Enough! E-Rex Petrol Engine Revealed

Posted by in categories: economics, energy, transportation

FOR as long as internal combustion has ruled the roads, vehicles have been fitted with just three basic types of engine: four-stroke, two-stroke, and rotary.

Each differs from the next with regard to its power density and fuel economy, but the general premise of each is very similar. Air and fuel go in, get ignited, and push the piston (or rotor) which in turn rotates the crankshaft creating motion.

New Device Creates Electricity Out Of Thin Air

Posted by in categories: energy, engineering, nanotechnology

While we may struggle with the production of electricity and green power now, a recent discovery by the University of Massachusetts in Amherst has discovered something quite amazing. One day, in the not far away future-we may have the ability to create electricity from thin air.

Well, technically we already do, but let me explain how this happened and what that means for us. The study was published in the journal Nature in February 2020. The title is “Power generation from ambient humidity using protein nanowires” and through this study, the researchers stumbled upon something quite amazing.

The project was started by electrical engineering student Xiaomeng Liu, who works in the lab with the study author Jun Yao, discovered a prototype that he had been working on and began doing something he didn’t expect. Even when he wasn’t running the machine, he was picking up on power output. “We were initially very perplexed,” Yao says.
