How does the size of the bulb in thermometers affect the range and sensitivity of the thermometer?

Do you have an answer? Please feel free to post your answer. We’ll elaborate it after receiving your responses as comments

What is the difference between centre of gravity,centroid and centre of mass ?

Centroid is the geometric centre of a plane figure or object

Centroid divides the shape into regions of equal moments.

 

 

Centre of mass is the mean location of all masses in a system

 

Centre of gravity is the point through which the weight of a body acts.

 

All these will coincide for a plane figure with uniform density and uniform distribution of mass

Where is electricity stored after it is generated but before it is supplied? (Chat Transcript from FaceBook)

Where is electricity stored after it is generated but before it is supplied?
    • Mahesh Sable Electrical power cannot be stored and,therefore,power plants must produce power as and when demanded.power stations r connected in parallel hence load is equally distributed,electric Power can be adjusted with help of step up or step down transformers.

       

    • Mathew Abraham Transformer does not increase power

       

    • Chitraja Rajan The demand for electricity varies randomly within a day itself…so there should be something which should be adjusted according to the demand.

       

    • Vishnu Mohan G huge capacitors? i think i read somewhere like this.

       

    • Rajat Sharma

      Hi All, the question is very smart, i think electricity stored before generation is stored in Water(DAM), Uranium Rods(Nuclear), HydroCarbons(Coal, GAS). Electricity can only store when it is in Direct Current format like in Batteries, Capacitor(its a very small time to store/release) Well there are many source where we can store electricity. When electricity is in demand then Power generation takes place within huge Alternators, this powers generation takes places in terms of Phase Shift between all the power Houses across the country, if this phase shift is disturb then power grid fails. after this the transformers come into picture so as to reduce Resistance loses.

    • Kannan Kannan Ps in my little knowledge electricity unable to store continuing process of generater get current
      >________________________________

       

    • Chitraja Rajan at the generation side electricity is high ac current ..if it is converted into dc then there should be large containers to store them and also need suitable convertors to convert it in either form every time

       

    • Mathew Abraham In modern generators, there are equipment to control the rate of flow of water and in turn rate of rotation as well as the power generated. SO, it is quite right to say that electricity is generated as and when required. When you switch on a device power generation also increases until it reaches maximum capacity. Thereafter we will get less power. Remember the low voltage we suffer during the evening when the power consumption is maximum a few seconds ago · Like
