Louis Slotin

Louis Slotin Louis Alexander Slotin (December 1 , 1910 – May 30 , 1946 ) was a Canadian physicist and chemist who took part in the Manhattan Project . He was born and raised in the North End of Winnipeg , Manitoba . After earning both his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees fro more

Francium

Francium Francium (), formerly known as eka-caesium and actinium K , is a chemical element that has the symbol Fr and atomic number 87. It has the lowest known electronegativity of all known elements, and is the second rarest naturally occurring element (after as more

RNA interference

RNA interference trims double stranded RNA, to form small interfering RNA or microRNA . These processed RNAs are incorporated into the RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC), which targets messenger RNA to prevent translation . RNA interference (RNAi) is a mechanism that inhibits gene expression more

DNA

DNA Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a nucleic acid that contains the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms . The main role of DNA molecule s is the long-term storage of information . DNA is often compared to a set of blueprints, since it cont more

Equipartition theorem

Equipartition theorem peptide . The jittery motion is random and complex, and the energy of any particular atom can fluctuate wildly. Nevertheless, the equipartition theorem allows the average kinetic energy of each atom to be computed, as well as the average potential energies of many vibrationa more
