Cooking Popcorn Using Solar Energy
If you've ever used a magnifying glass to concentrate the sun’s rays on a summer day, you know that solar energy can produce surprisingly high temperatures. What if you gather that energy and focus it on a pot of popcorn? Would it pop the popcorn, just like on a stovetop? Here are a few points of comparison between a solar cooker and your average kitchen's cooktop: - The amount of solar radiation reaching the Earth's surface is around 1,000 watts/m^2 - An average size electric stovetop heat

5.4 Fatty acids as indicators of diet

Although polar fish and invertebrates are difficult to study alive for the reasons just described, some information about their diet and habits can be obtained from analysis of the lipid composition of their tissues. At high latitudes, the supply of most kinds of marine food changes with the seasons, just as it does on land, and many fish eat little or nothing for long periods, living off their reserves of triacylglycerols. Lipids are major fuels for polar fish and, although many fish have li
