5 W’s for 200 Years of Electromagnetism
Fun fact: Hans Christian Ørsted originally studied pharmacology and philosophy before he went on to discover the connection between electricity and magnetism.
Modeling Droplet Flow in an Open Space with COMSOL Multiphysics®
If you are jogging six feet apart from someone else, should you both be wearing masks? Simulation was used to analyze the motion of particles between two runners in an open space to find answers.
Happy Birthday, Marie Van Brittan Brown
Today, home security is a billion dollar industry that relies on smart devices. However, it all started with a nurse who wanted to feel safer in her home in Queens, New York.
It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s…Gravity-Defying Spiders!
Spider ballooning, in which spiders float for miles, was originally observed by Charles Darwin in 1832. Since then, researchers from University of Bristol used simulation to study this effect.
Best Papers and Posters: COMSOL Conference 2020 North America
MEMS microphones, inductors, thermal ablation, and the Navier–Stokes equations are just a few of the topics featured in the top papers and posters from the COMSOL Conference 2020 North America.
Happy Birthday, Henry Cavendish
Did you know that the element hydrogen was originally called “inflammable air” upon its discovery by Henry Cavendish because of how easily it burns? Learn more about the chemist and physicist…
How Does This Lip Gloss Appear to Defy Gravity?
We attempt to explain a mysterious, gravity-defying phenomenon involving a viral video, dielectric materials, electrostatics, and lip gloss.
Happy Birthday, Arne Tiselius
The “Tiselius Apparatus” could help determine the isoelectric point, molecular weight, and physical properties of proteins. Learn about the “Father of Electrophoresis” and his accomplishments.
