A model of potassium electron configurations

The Lad’s Ion Cloud model of the potassium atom has shown remarkable promise in explaining the behavior of the electron cloud around potassium ions.While previous models have tended to assume that electrons are driven by the atom’s magnetic moment, the Lad’s model has suggested that electrons may also be driven by an electrostatic field (ESF).This …

Kia Kia says its new electric car will be ‘the world’s best’

Kia Motors, the South Korean automaker, has unveiled its new hybrid-electric vehicle, the Kia ZOE, with a power-to-weight ratio of 1,935 kilowatt-hours (kWh), a 0.6-second acceleration time and a 0-to -60 mph (0-to 0.4 km/h) sprint of just 0.3 seconds.The new Kia vehicle is also lighter than the standard ZOE and has a weight of …

“The Ultimate K-Tron” (with video)

By Ryan J. Miller and Mike E. Woodrum/National Geographic SocietyFor a century, physicists have known that the electron is one of the most powerful particles in nature.Its speed is roughly 10 billion kilometers per second, enough to travel about 7,500 light years.But as electrons grow stronger, their speed can be reduced by as much as …
