SIMPLE EXPERIMENTALPROJECT SHOWING HOW TO MAKE A STEAM TURBINE FOR BOTH JUNIOR AND HIGH SCHOOL


A steam turbine is a device that extracts thermal energy from pressurized steam and uses it to do mechanical work on a rotating output shaft.

1. Cut a circle 3 inches across from a thick foil food tray. Pierce a small hole in the center, then snip in toward the hole with your scissors as shown in the image. Twist the sections slightly to make the blades. 


2. Punch two small holes in the top of a full, soda can—one in the center, the other about half an inch to one side. Empty the soda out and pour half cup of water into the can

3. To make the stand, cut a piece of thick foil 8 inches long and 14 inches wide. Fold in half lengthwise, then bend into shape as shown so it fits
across the top of the can. Make a small hole 2 inches up on each side of the stand.

4. Fix the stand onto the can with a small screw. Then push a 4 inches long wooden skewer through the holes in the sides of the stand, threading the wheel in place as you go.

5. Make sure the blades of the wheel are positioned over the small hole in the can. Then put your turbine on a stove burner over a low heat. As the water starts to boil, the escaping steam will spin the wheel on your turbine.

DO YOU SEE THESE STRANGE LINES ON YOUR NAILS? DON'T JOKE WITH IT, THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS OF YOUR HEALTH

As I’ve gotten older, those vertical ridges on my nails seem to be getting more and more prominent.

That’s when I decided to do some research to see if those ridges meant anything about my health, and if there was anything I could do to get rid of them.
What They Mean About Your Health After a lot of research, I did find that there is a small, rare possibility that those ridges can mean an underlying medical condition or possibly even nail trauma.
But for most of us, it’s completely normal as we age to see them getting more noticeable, especially if you have dry skin or skin conditions such as eczema.
I’m 36, and they’ve only recently started bothering me, but I’m relieved to find that they are most likely harmless. I’m just getting old.
But Why Are They There? They’re basically like wrinkles of the nails! As we age, the nail matrix gradually starts to lose it’s effectiveness in some areas, causing your nails to grow out uneven, resulting in what we see as lines or ridges that run from the c…
