A WiFi network can operate in one of two different modes: ad hoc mode or infrastructure mode

In an ad hoc network, stations communicate with each other directly, without the need for any intermediary or central control. This means that when one WiFi device comes within range of another, a direct communication channel can be set up between them. This is known as peer-to-peer communication. Additional devices can join the network, all communicating with each o

Newton's Laws of Motion
This video shows the three laws of motion developed by Sir Isaac Newton and is done with excellent graphics.
The first law of motion, inertia, is when an object will not move or else move in a straight line unless an unbalanced force acts on it. The second law of motion states that force is the product of mass and acceleration; acceleration fo an object depends on the mass and magnitude of the force. (force=massxacceleration) The third law of motion is the law of action and reaction. In ev

In Video 1 Megan does not draw his attention to the instruction diagram at all, although she herself glances at it from time to time. At the end of the video, whe
