On the other hand, around 4000 kilo watts of power can be saved which is equal to one year of power that is been used by a family. On the other hand, 4 barrels of oil and 60, 000 gallons of water will be saved with this process of recycling.
  • If half of the papers which are used in the world are recycled, one can save the trees which are in two crores acres of land.
  • With the process of recycling, 74% of air pollution and 34% of water pollution are controlled.

Who Discovered Vacuum?

Who Discovered Vacuum?

In general we will call as vacuum if nothing is there. But once upon a time no one doesn’t know about this vacuum and there took place lot of experiments in order to prove this vacuum scientifically. In the ear 1643, a scientist named Evangelist Torricelli has filled the mercury into the thin glass vessel and closed the other side of the vessel with the finger. Then he reversed the vessel by closing the other side with his finger. But, though the vessel is made up side down, the mercury in the vessel remained constant. On the other hand, there is a gap in between the finger and the mercury.  The empty space which made and stopped the mercury to come down is named as vacuum, the pressure free area.

Torricelli is very fond of the subjects like scientific research and mathematics. Galileo has appointed Torricelli as his assistant after observing his interest and talent in mathematics and researches. It is in that time only, the research which is made by Torricelli on vacuum is brought into the light. On the other hand, Torricelli has observed that the vacuum and empty spaces are not constant but changes according to the pressure and situation.

What is 3G?

What is 3G?

3G3G which is also called as third generation Mobile telecommunication is very much useful to the mobile users.  The following features like downloading  songs within seconds, internet surfing can be done with an excellent speed, watching the live TV programs without any buffering,  reaching to the unknown destinations using the GPS root map are possible only with this technology.   At present, the mobiles the data transfer rate is only 144 kbps in the mobiles which is working with 2G network. Using this network, the customer who wants to download a song which plays for 3 minutes of time takes around 8 minutes for downloading.  The same can be done in 3G networks within 15 seconds because its speed is more which is almost equivalent to the speed of the light rays.  In a single statement we can conclude that maintaining a lap top is same as the maintain a mobile with 3G network in the pocket.

Be Careful with Tariff

The operators are providing 3G services for prepaid and postpaid customers in different packages.  There is a possibility for free downloading of data up to some extent by collecting a fixed fee from the customers.  If the free data limit exceeds, then the operator collects the charges which depends on tariff and in return which increases the bill amount.
