No. There is no way we can produce baryonic matter out of void. Most of the non-dark matter in the Universe is hydrogen, which is fused into heavier elements inside of stars. There is no "copying" of matter, only rearrangement from one form into another (or transfer from matter to energy or vice versa). While you can theoretically turn energy into ...

Cells reproduce by growing and dividing, but they do not duplicate each atom, molecule, or subatomic particle individually prior to doing so. Cells take in nutrients from their outside environment; in a human, these nutrients are initially carried by the digestive system. These nutrients contain carbon, as well as other elements, needed for cell growth, and ...

Biological processes do not generate atoms or even sub-atomic particles out of thin air. When a cell splits, the number of total atoms in the daughter cells is exactly the number of atoms in the mother cell. Sustained growth is possible since nutrition provides an external source of energy and raw material, allowing the daughter cells to grow and achieve ...

I think the shaking action causes the batteries to move slightly, thus 'scraping' the contact area on the batteries and the contact elements in the remote. This improves the conductivity, and so on. Certainly I've had success opening the battery compartment and physically rotating the batteries and/or scraping the contacts gently. I think it's unlikely ...

Batteries contain various liquids that are important for the voltage to be produced. Sometimes, the liquid – even water – may turn to gas and it is permanently lost, along with the capacity. Sometimes, the liquid just moves to one side of the battery which is also bad. Shaking a weak battery may homogenize the concentration of the liquid across the battery. ...

Chemical reactions satisfy mass conservation and energy conservation independently. Mass conservation implies the mass of the system remaining unchanged (zero change) as the reaction proceeds. Small changes - however small - are deemed to violate the law of conservation of mass. This has nothing to do with our ability to measure very small values of mass ...

The material contained in the given link suffers from mistakes such as: For a process carried out at constant temperature and pressure, the Gibbs free energy change is equal to the maximum amount of work (wmax) that can be done by the process. $G° = –nF$. Coming to answer your questions, the second equality in your equations: δQ−δW = δQ−(pdV + other ...

Hydrogen bonding arises when a chemical bond is polarised to one end of it has a slight positive charge and the other has a slight negative charge. In the case of o-nitrophenol it's mainly the OH bond that is polarised - the H atom has a slight positive charge and the O atom has a slight negative charge. The charge separation means the OH bond has an ...

In short, they are hard to separate because even though the molecules are very different, they have properties that attract them to each other. Water is a polar molecule. the oxygen molecule oxidizes the two hydrogen molecules, creating a positive charge on the hydrogen side, and a negative charge on the oxygen side. Meanwhile, salt is composed of Sodium, ...

$"$If we put a crystal of salt in the water, what will happen? Salt is a solid, a crystal, an organized arrangement of "salt atoms." Strictly speaking, the crystal is not made of atoms, but of what we call ions. An ion is an atom which either has a few extra electrons or has lost a few electrons. In a salt crystal we find chlorine ions (chlorine atoms ...
