...superconductors. Their application makes use... Superconductivity and Applications Superconductivity Superconductivity is the characteristic behaviour of certain metallic and ceramic materials, where electric resistance is completely lost upon subjection to very low temperatures (teachers.web, n.d). The temperatures range where this phenomenon is observed among these various materials lies from between absolute zero (-273°C/-459°F/0°K) on the lower side to (-196°C/-321°F/77°K) on the upper side. Generally, there is another class of materials that exhibits superconductivity without the critical temperature requirement. This creates two categories, which will be discussed below under type I and type II...

...Superconductors may hold the key to make alternative, sustainable, and renewable energy possible. Superconductors are materials that are able to transport electricity with no loss of power (Fundamentals of Superconductors 1996). Large amounts of power that is generated in power plants is lost in the lines during transmission. If this loss could be eliminated it could facilitate the construction of smaller generating plants that are fueled by renewable sources. In addition, all our electrical appliances would become far more efficient and require less power. Currently, superconductor technology is only operable at very...

...superconductors tend to allow the flow of electrons in constant mode when compared with high temperatures. Also, the resistance of materials largely depends on its length, resistivity of the material and cross-sectional area. Resistivity and conductivity are inversely proportional (S. Knight), good conductors have low resistivity while the poor conductors have more resistivity when compared with good conductors. The resistance reduces amount of current through the circuit and the bulb will glow depending on the amount of electrons passing through the wire (Jeong). When electrons are moving against the same direction it causes friction, this is manifested in form of heat... and number: The study of...

Rare earth minerals Rare earth minerals include 17 elements that are located in the 6th and 7th periods of the periodic table. They are also elements of the 3rd group in the periodic table. They are vital raw materials in the manufacture of electronic gadgets such as iPods, laptops and mobile phones just to mention a few. Because of their scarcity in the environment and their vital use, this paper highlights the importance of these rare earth’s minerals to the United States and why it should create its own resources or mines.
