As the title says. It is common sense that sharp things cut, but how do they work at the atomical level?
Does anyone know how to directly convert a .cif file to a Xcryden structure file(.xsf) ? I know how to extract the lattice vectors and the atom positions from a .cif file, but don't whether the .cif ...
Do the viscoelastic materials creep at the same rate under three types of fundamental stresses, viz.- TENSION, COMPRESSION and SHEAR??? My intuition tells me that the answer is no. But, I can't get ...

Feynman mentions in his lectures: ...the concept of a molecule of a substance is only approximate and exists only for a certain class of substances. It is clear in the case of water that the ...
For Diatomic molecules, the Morse potential describes their potential energy as a function of separation distance between the two particles. My question is, what is the explanation of of the dip ...
