What is Energetics: Definition and 12 Discussions

The Laboratory for Laser Energetics (LLE) is a scientific research facility which is part of the University of Rochester's south campus, located in Brighton, New York. The lab was established in 1970 and its operations since then have been funded jointly; mainly by the United States Department of Energy, the University of Rochester and the New York State government. The Laser Lab was commissioned to serve as a center for investigations of high-energy physics, specifically those involving the interaction of extremely intense laser radiation with matter. Many types of scientific experiments are performed at the facility with a strong emphasis on inertial confinement, direct drive, laser-induced fusion, fundamental plasma physics and astrophysics using OMEGA. In June 1995, OMEGA became the world's highest-energy ultraviolet laser. The lab shares its building with the Center for Optoelectronics and Imaging and the Center for Optics Manufacturing. The Robert L. Sproull Center for Ultra High Intensity Laser Research was opened in 2005 and houses the OMEGA EP laser, which was completed in May 2008.
The laboratory is unique in conducting big science on a university campus. More than 180 Ph.D.s have been awarded for research done at the LLE. During summer months the lab sponsors a program for high school students which involves local-area high school juniors in the research being done at the laboratory. Most of the projects are done on current research that is led by senior scientists at the lab.

    A question about ionic bonding

    I am sure this question will have been asked elsewhere, so please forgive me if it has. My question involves the transfer of electrons in ionic bonding. We are told that a metal will give up its outer most electron because by doing so it will gain the electron configuration of a noble gas...

    Enthelpy of Formation of Tetraoxygen

    I am curious as to what is the Standard Enthalpy Of Formation is of Tetraoxygen in kJ/mol. I am assuming reference to the molar weight of the Tetraoxygen molecule. I seem to only find papers on the subject which are abstruse with detail but no clear answer to my inquiry. I have little formal...

    Bernoulli's Principle and Energetics of Flowing blood

    My understanding and application: Flowing blood with mass m, and velocity v has KE proportional to mean velocity squared as blood flows inside the vasculature, pressure is also exerted laterally against the walls of the vessels So, it is then reasonable to use Bernoulli's for the blood and...

    Making bonds/breaking bonds and energetics

    Hello, I have never been able to keep straight in my head if making bonds and breaking bonds are exothermic or endothermic. Is there any way that someone can explain why which is which in a way that is understandable because I'm tired of constantly having to re memorize it.
