.... the year. Surface Pressure Field and Winds: For any fluid to initiate movements, pressure gradient must exists. Therefore, for a close understanding of the circulation system that operates over China, we should start from discussing the seasonal pressure distribution at sea-level over the Asia-Pacific region, which is the driving force for the air movements in China. Most clearly to be seen, the largest difference in the atmospheric pressure occurs between winter and summer, whereby January and July can be considered as representative months. In January, a typical cold anticyclone with .....

Electric Charge
Number of words: 587 - Number of pages: 3

.... The adjective static describes something that does not move. Charges on an object are called static electricity to contrast then with the moving charges in an electric current. How can you disturb the balance of charge on objects so they exert electric force? The easiest way is the same way the ancient Greeks did it – by rubbing the 2 objects together. Rubbing neutral objects together allows charged pieces of matter to move from one object to another. The invisible bits of negatively charged matter that move between objects are called electrons. The words electron, electricity, and e .....

This hypothesis is supported by the fining of bone beds, large deposits of bones of the same species in am area. Triceratops hatched from eggs, which may have been cared for by adults. Which threatened by predators, Triceratops probably changed into its enemy, like the modern-day rhinoceros does. This was probably a very effective defense.

When a charged particle or gamma ray enters the tube , it ionizes a gas atom between the copper cylinder and the wire. The positive ion produced is accelerated toward the copper cylinder by the potential difference. The electron is accelerated toward the positive wire. As these new particles move toward the electrodes, they strike other atoms and form even more ion in their path. Thus an avalanche of charged particles is cre .....
