Dielectric Materials

Dielectric is a material in which energy can be accumulated. Ideally, it  is  a non-conductor  of  electric  charge  like  insulators, but  an  efficient   supporter  of  electrostatic  fields. The distinction between the insulators and dielectrics and dielectrics lies in the application to which each is employed; Insulating materials are used to resist the flow of current in a certain direction, while the dielectric materials are used to accumulate electrical energy. "Materials which are electrical sustained with a least dissipation of power can be termed as dielectric materials". This property is helpful in capacitors, particularly at radio frequencies. Dielectric materials are also required in the construction of radio frequency transmissions lines.

  • Q : Explain Planck radiation law Planck

    Planck radiation law: The law which explained blackbody radiation better than its precursor, therefore resolving the ultraviolet catastrophe. This is based on the supposition that electromagnetic radiation is quantized.

    Q : What is Pfund series Pfund series: The

    Pfund series: The series that explains the emission spectrum of hydrogen whenever the electron is jumping to the fifth orbital. Each line is in the infrared part of the spectrum.

  • Q : What is balmer series Balmer series (J.

    Balmer series (J. Balmer; 1885): An equation that explains the emission spectrum of hydrogen whenever an electron is jumping to the next orbital; four of the lines are in visible spectrum, and the remainder (residue) are in the ultraviolet.

  • Q : What is Wave-particle duality

    Wave-particle duality: The principle of quantum mechanics that entails that light (and, certainly, all other subatomic particles) at times act similar to a wave, and sometime act similar to a particle, based on the experiment you are executing. For ex

  • Q : Define Compton Effect Compton Effect

    Compton Effect (A.H. Compton; 1923): The effect which describes those photons (that is the quantum of electromagnetic radiation) has momentum. The photon fired at a stationary particle, like an electron, will communicate momentum to t

  • Q : Explain Event horizon Event horizon:

    Event horizon: The radius which a spherical mass should be compressed to in order to convert it into a black hole, or the radius at which the time and space switch responsibilities. Once within the event horizon, it is basically impossible to escape t

    Becquerel: Bq (after A.H. Becquerel, 1852-1908) - The derived SI unit of the activity stated as the activity of radionuclide decay at a rate, on the average, of one nuclear transition every 1 s; it hence has units of s-1.

  • Q : Define Ehrenfest paradox Ehrenfest

    Ehrenfest paradox (Ehernfest, 1909): The special relativistic "paradox" including a fast rotating disc. As any radial segment of the disc is perpendicular to the direction of motion, there must be no length contraction of the radius;
