Question description


I want you to go to The New York Times newspaper and find articles related to physics, Just PHYSICS, you can find physics articles from the SCIENCE SECTION in The New York Times science section. for those dates --> oct 24rd, oct 31, Nov 7th, Nov 14th, Nov 21th, and Nov 28th.

an article for each date and write me a summary. Therefore, you will write me 6 summaries. Make sure no plagiarism, and something related to physics.

Oct 4th, 2017: “Electric Honeycombs Form When Nature Gets Out of Balance”
An electrical honeycomb forms when electrically charged particles move between a pointy
electrode and a flat electrode but along the way, bump into a puddle of oil. A polygonal pattern is
what emerges usually referred to as rose-window stability by some physicists. It happens as
natural forces work to keep an electric charge moving in an interrupted circuit.
The phenomenon points out to the fact that human beings are not the only creatures on the
earth’s surface seeking for stability but also tiny objects need balance in this unstable world.
Engineers can use this visualization to come up with machines that involve interaction between
fluids and electricity
Mohammed Shaheer Niazi, a 17-year old high school student from Pakistan, presented this
phenomenon in the International Young Physicists Tournament with a photographic evidence of
the charged ions creating the honeycomb and him, later on, published his work in the journal
Royal Society Open Science.
An electric honeycomb behaves like a capacitor with the top electrode as a needle which delivers
high voltage to the air creating a corona discharge then pours down the electrically charged
particles onto a thin layer of oil which is a few centimeters above the top electrode. These ions
want to hit the other flat grounded surface electrode, but it’s impossible since oil is a poor
The ions keep on accumulating on top of the oil until their force becomes excess making them
sink through the oil exposing the bottom electrode. The layer of the fat becomes uneven but to

maintain its equilibrium, the hexagonal layers are formed balancing two forces; gravity and
electric field.
