Heat – Way of propagation

By radiation, heat propagates without leading to a movement of matter, only the mechanical energy waves or electromagnetic energy waves move. Heat radiation propagates through gases, often by air. Through convection, takes place a movement of substance, fluids, liquids or gas from bottom up and vice-versa. Hot particles become lighter and rise, their place being taken immediately by the cold particles. The hot particles now are far from the heating source, they release the heat and become cold and heavy again, going down to the heating source level. In this way the cycle continues.

Heat, mechanical work, and magnetic field

I have had a discussion with some acquaintances (engineers) who told me that they have attended a presentation where a very well known company presented its infrared panels with negative ions and the presenter said that these infrared panels give more heat than the power consumption. My acquaintances said that it is not like I have said (the amount of heat given by radiator is based on energy consumption) and this kind of radiators can release more heat. These engineers also claim that these panels only produce negative ions. If engineers can say this kind of things then what should I expect from others?!

Heat explained

In order to understand what the heat is, it is necessary to explain some introductory notions. The universe consists of matter. The matter exists in form of substance or physical field. Energy is a property of matter. There is movement because the energy exists. Energy travels faster or slower depending on the wave transmission method (the electric field, electromagnetic field, oscillating mechanical motion, etc.). The energy propagates through substance. The substance opposed to unidirectional motion of waves and it imprints an oscillatory movement to the particles that are component parts of the respective substance. These particles (that are part of the substance) can be: molecules, atoms, ions, or electrons). The oscillatory movement is applied to the particles in several directions. That energy is called “heat”.

Growth and collapse of economies – scenario

Long time ago, in a small Brazilian city, people cultivated land and grew animals. They were poor and lived in impoverished homes.

Suddenly, automotive industry in Europe and United Stated has expanded and the rubber was in high demand. Car’s tires manufacturing required great quantities of rubber. Brazil’s richest people have bought land, virgin forests were cleared and rubber was planted everywhere. Poor people from Europe went to work on these plantations.

Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej

Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej was the leader of Romania before Ceausescu. A few months ago, I read an article about the fact that it is inexplicable how people cry at the death of tyrants like Stalin, Mao Zedong, Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej and others. How can be there affinity between executioner and his victims, asked the author.

French people and their revolutions

Many times I wondered why French people were so revolutionary. They had the Jacquerie, then the revolution of 1789, the two Paris Communes, the revolution of 1848, anti-Nazi resistance etc. Why were not English people that revolutionary? They can praise only with bourgeois-democratic revolution of 1647, which establish the dictatorship of Oliver Cromwell and the revolution of 1848. Now, I understand why!

Financial crisis and banks

A Romanian proverb says: “If you don’t let him die, he won’t let you live”. It is the same situation with the world’s financial crisis! Banks are not allowed to go bankrupt, but they are saved by the state. That’s why the crisis will never end (it will end but not very soon).

Extremist political parties

Political parties that are labeled as “extremists” by the western political scientists are the Communist Party of Soviet Union (it was called the Bolshevik Party) and the National-Socialist Party (Nazi party).
