Q3.What is persistance of vision?
  Topic:The human eye and the colourful world
  Asked by:Karan Ohri
  Time:1/16/14 20:08:54

 Response:The persistance of vision is an ability of eye to persist an image on retina for one sixteenth of  a second even when the object is removed away from the front of the eye.
 This is due to a prolonged chemical reaction. As a result, the eye cannot clearly distinguish fast changes in light that occur in front of it.
 This visual perception of the eye is  used in making videos.

Q4.XML vs HTML;comments in xml;hacker vs cracker;data backup and online backup?
  Topic:xml,html,societal impacts
  Asked by: AMRIT SINGH
  Time:1/16/14 18:11:44

 html vs xml
 -HTML is for displaying data and xml is for transporting data.
 -Closing tags are not mandatory in HTML but they are mandatory in xml.
 -HTML is static and xml is dynamic.
comments in html are in our syllabus
 two ways-
 first-<!-- This is commented out -->
     second-<comment>   </comment>
  Actually hackers are of two types
first,white hat hackers or simply hackers
second,black hat hackers or crackers
  • hacker is a person intensely interested in the  workings of any computer operating system. Hackers are most often programmers. As such, hackers obtain advanced knowledge of operating systems and programming languages. They might discover holes within systems and the reasons for such holes. Hackers constantly seek further knowledge, freely share what they have discovered, and never intentionally damage data.
  • cracker is one who breaks into or otherwise violates the system integrity of remote machines with malicious intent. Having gained unauthorized access, crackers destroy vital data, deny legitimate users service, or cause problems for their targets. Crackers can easily be identified because their actions are malicious.
so..all crackers are hackers but all crackers are not hackers.
This is a way to protect your data in which your data is kept at multiple locations.It is to keep your data in the secondary drive other than the original drive.
Type of backups in which the data is saved on the nearby servers from your hard drive using a network connection. The reason for acquiring online backup is simple. By backing up data continuously (or as frequently as needed) on a remote hard drive, the risk of data loss as a result of file corruption, fire, theft, or other natural disasters is practically eliminated. You can safely access or restore any lost files by using any PC with high-speed Internet connection and a Web browser interface. Privacy and security are assured with encryption and password protection.

Q5. How to calculate value of sin 120?
Topic: Sin 120
Asked by: Gurpreet Singh
Time: 1/15/2014 21:15:04

Response: Sin 120 = Sin(2x60)
= 2 Sin 60 Cos 60
= 2 (sqrt3/2 x 1/2)
= sqrt3/2 ans

Q6.Why is the colour of sun red in morning and white in noon?
  Asked by: AMRIT SINGH
  Time:1/23/2014 17:12:45

 Response:There are seven colours of white light.We call that pattern of colours as VIBGYOR.The scattering of light is inversely proportional to the wavelength of that light.Violet has the least wavelength,hence scatters the most and red has the longest wavelength,hence scatters the least.So from V to R there is decreasing order of wavelength.
 During sunrise or sunset the white light travels longer distance and most of the blue colour gets scattered out of the white light,so the sun appears to be red as red colour scatters the least.
 During noon,the distance which sunlight has to travel is less and there are very less particles in air which can scatter the light coming from the sun,so there is less scattering of light and hence the sun appears to be white.

Topic:regeneration in planaria
Asked by:Himanshu
Time: 1/12/2014 18:57:o3

 Response:Planaria is a flatworm found in fresshwater and slow moving streams. planaria posses great power of regeneration . if the body of planaria somehow gets cut into number of peices, then each body peice can regenerate into a complete planaria by growing all the missing parts...(as shown in the given figure.)..

Q1. why Do mainly Stars Change Their Original Place when we look up in the night ?
Topic: From light and Reflaction (SCIENCE)
Asked by: Rahul kumar
Time: 1/12/2014 14:57:32

Response: Actually the stars don't change their positions,they seem to be changing because of refraction.Stars are far away,look small and are a point source of light and the light coming from them is affected by atmospheric refraction.But if you take the case of objects closer to earth then they are closer than stars.For us they are not a point source.Infact they are collection of point sources and seem to be bigger.The ray of light coming from such object ,if suffers from more refraction then, the intensity of that ray of light decreases but the other ray of light which has suffered less refraction has less effect on its intensity.Likewise,if intensity decreases from one point then it increases at the other point.So they don't seem to change their position.So,mainly stars seem to be changing their positions.
