By the end of this course you should be able to answer some interesting questions Why sometimes air simply leaks out of a cycle tube while at other times it comes out with a burst?
Artificial rain? A giant "dragon" spewing out artificial rain over rural crop of Vidalia sweet onions
Concept of stability and metastability What do we mean by stable state? How we define metastable state? Some materials tend to remain in metastable State for years and years!! Why???
