Open Science Wiki

OpenScience is a community effort by students to bring conceptual explanation and detailed information about various topics in the various fields of science. Students will share their knowledge, research, and ideas about scientific discoveries and the workings of nature as we know it. This wiki will have sections for broader science areas like biology, chemistry, and physics, which will be stubdivided by concept/topic groups. The goal of this wiki is not only to be a repository of scientific knowledge, but also to provide explanations and even lessons such that students can learn about interesting topics outside of the classroom in a way that is coherent and understandable.

Gas is one of the four basic states of matter. A pure gas consists of individual molecules(like helium, xenon, neon, etc), diatomic molecules (like oxygen, sulphur, hydrogen, etc) or a compound molecule made of different atoms(as in CO2). A mixture of gases contains variety of gaseous molecules like that of air. Read More>>

Gravitational Force

Gravitational Force is an attraction between two bodies by the virtue of their mass. The force of attraction between two point masses is $ F = G \frac{m_1 m_2}{r^2} $, where m1 and m2 are the masses of the particles and r is the distance between them. G is a universal constant having the value 6.67 × 10-11 Nm2kg-2. Read More>>

Image of The Week


Astronomers discover solar system’s most distant object, nicknamed ‘FarFarOut’. For most people, snow days aren’t very productive.

Some people, though, use the time to discover the most distant object in the solar system.

That’s what Scott Sheppard, an astronomer at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, D.C., did this week when a snow squall shut down the city.

A glitzy public talk he was due to deliver was delayed, so he hunkered down and did what he does best: sifted through telescopic views of the solar system’s fringes that his team had taken last month during their search for a hypothesized ninth giant planet. SOURCE:

Search the Elements

On the right hand side is the crossword puzzle. There are elements from the periodic table which are spread in all the directions(horizontal, vertical and diagonal). The answer for this puzzle is hidden on our wiki if you dare then try to search the wiki for the answers: it's not so hard though.

We prefer that you open the full sized image as it would be more easy to view.
