Science on the Air: Popularizers and Personalities on Radio by Marcel Chotkowski LaFollette

By Marcel Chotkowski LaFollette

Mr. Wizard’s World. Bill Nye the technological know-how Guy. NPR’s Science Friday. These renowned tv and radio courses broadcast technology into the houses of hundreds of thousands of audience and listeners. yet those sleek sequence owe a lot in their luck to the pioneering efforts of early-twentieth-century technological know-how exhibits like Adventures in Science and “Our pal the Atom.” Science at the Air is the attention-grabbing historical past of the evolution of well known technology within the first many years of the broadcasting era.

Marcel Chotkowski LaFollette transports readers to the early days of radio, whilst the hot medium allowed cutting edge and confident scientists the chance to broadcast severe and dignified displays over the airwaves. however the exponential development of listenership within the Twenties, from millions to thousands, and the networks’ popularity that every listener represented a possible customer, became technological know-how at the radio into a chance to entertain, not only educate.

Science at the Air chronicles the efforts of technological know-how popularizers, from 1923 until eventually the mid-1950s, as they negotiated subject, content material, and tone with a view to achieve important time at the air. delivering a brand new standpoint at the collision among science’s idealistic and elitist view of public conversation and the unbending economics of broadcasting, LaFollette rewrites the historical past of the general public reception of technology within the 20th century and the function that scientists and their associations have performed in either encouraging and inhibiting popularization. through the broadcasting of the earlier, Science at the Air increases problems with main issue to all those that search to domesticate a scientifically literate society today.

Radioisotope gauges for industrial process measurements by Geir Anton Johansen

By Geir Anton Johansen

With the intention to totally utilise nucleonic dimension rules and their functions, it is very important understand the underlying physics. Radioisotope Gauges for commercial strategy Measurements combines theoretical historical past with functional event to be able to current an obtainable evaluation of using radioisotopes in undefined. This distinctive publication explains the modes of operation of put in gauges and offers nucleonic equipment proper to size difficulties. the 1st a part of the publication offers with radiation resources, the interplay of radiation with topic and radiation detectors. the second one half explains different size rules used for commercial gauges and the final a part of the ebook covers commercial functions. This booklet additionally:

  • Features a concise advent to atomic and nuclear physics.
  • Presents quite a number nucleonic dimension equipment and highlights their program to numerous difficulties.
  • Contains an summary of electronics, dimension accuracy, safeguard and criteria.
  • Considers methods and calls for, layout ideas and sensible realisation of dimension structures.
  • Provides many useful engineering examples.

supplying a finished insurance of engineering functions, this ebook is an important software for electric, digital and device engineers within the oil and chemical substances processing sectors. it's also a helpful connection with graduate scholars and physicists thinking about nuclear radiation dimension, clinical purposes, radiochemical examine, environmental tracking and chemical engineering.

Pragmatic Circuits: Frequency Domain (Synthesis Lectures on by William J. Eccles

By William J. Eccles

Pragmatic Circuits: Frequency area is going in the course of the Laplace rework to get from the time area to themes that come with the s-plane, Bode diagrams, and the sinusoidal regular nation. This moment of 3 volumes ends with a-c strength, which, even though it is simply a different case of the sinusoidal regular country, is a vital subject with specified strategies and terminology. Pragmatic Circuits: Frequency area is targeted at the frequency area. In different phrases, time will not be the autonomous variable in our research. the 2 different volumes within the Pragmatic Circuits sequence contain titles on DC and Time area and indications and Filters. those brief lecture books should be of use to scholars at any point of electric engineering and for practising engineers, or scientists, in any box searching for a pragmatic and utilized advent to circuits and signs. The author's "pragmatic" and utilized kind offers a different and beneficial "non-idealistic, functional, opinionated" advent to circuits.
