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.

Diagram of Stomata

Stoma (singular), usually called as Stomata (plural), is an opening found the leaf epidermis and stem epidermis used for gaseous exchange in plants . In Dicotyledons , more stomata is present in the lower epidermis of leaves than in the upper epidermis. On the other hand, Monocotyledons have same number of stomata on their upper epidermis as well as in the lower epidermis.

Air containing Carbon dioxide and Oxygen enters the plant through these openings...Read More>>>

Image of The Week

640px-Einstein gyro gravity probe b

An image of one of the most accurate man-made spheres, as it refracts the image of Einstein in the background. This sphere was a fused quartz gyroscope for the Gravity Probe B experiment which differs in shape from a perfect sphere by no more than 40 atoms of thickness. It is thought that only neutron stars are smoother. It was announced on 1 July, 2008 that Australian scientists had created even more perfect spheres, accurate to 0.3 nanometers, as part of an international hunt to find a new global standard kilogram.

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.
