Could a Dyson Sphere Harness the Full Power of the Sun? Could a Dyson Sphere Harness the Full Power of the Sun?

The Sun produces more energy than we can can comprehend. Its core reaches a predicted temperature of 15 million degrees Celsius or roughly the same temperature as an exploding hydrogen bomb. This is the scorching section of the Sun where nuclear fusion occurs. The process releases massive amounts of energy which eventually makes its way…

Steady-State Approximation Steady-State Approximation

This example applies the idea of the steady-state approximation to calculating the concentration of a reactive intermediate, in this case, this intermediate D, in a sequence of elementary steps. And the idea of elementary steps is the reactions occur as they’re indicated. Namely, a molecule of A collides with a molecule of B to make…
