States of Matter Current Affairs, GK & News
Matter can exist in at least four fundamental states viz. solid, liquid, gas and plasma. There are other states also such as Bose–Einstein condensate, quark-gluon plasmas etc. which don’t exist in our natural environment. Basic difference between Solid, Liquid and Gas In solids, the constituent particles are held very close to each other in an ....Read More
The NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) scientists in the International Space Station unveiled the first results of Bose-Einstein condensate experiments under which the particles can be manipulated free from Earthly constraints. Bose-Einstein Condensates Bose-Einstein Condensates were predicted by Indian Mathematician Satyendra Nath Bose and Albert Einstein almost a century ago. The BEC is a ..

Scientists Los Alamos National Laboratory, US have discovered a potential new state of matter that may help explain phenomena like superconductivity. It was discovered in the high-magnetic-field state of the heavy fermion superconductor CeRhIn5. Heavy fermions are intermetallic compounds, containing rare earth or actinide elements. Key Facts In the new state, material’s electrons are aligned ..
