Who reads research papers or studies to learn new things?🙋♀️👇🏼
The summer before I started my freshman year of college, I was accepted into a program that allowed me to do research with a professor, before starting engineering school.
One of the first things they had us do is to pick two papers from credible science journals only. The subject was micro fluid dynamics, and I had to read these papers and explain the experiment and results.
This was soooo hard for me knowing absolutely NO fluid dynamics or even engineering jargon. I was 17.
BUT after hours of reading these papers over and over again, I started to kinda understand the very advanced topics discussed.
I've spent the last week going through different papers, studies, and articles to learn something new and create content that was extremely scientific. I'm excited to show you what I've created.
I've also grown to appreciate my ability to read research papers that aren't related to engineering... and still learn what's going on. Science is logic, and I love that.

Sound comes from vibrations. These vibrations create sound waves which move through mediums such as air and water before reaching our ears.
Our ears vibrate in a similar way to the original source of the vibration, allowing us to hear many different sounds. The speed of sound is around 767 miles per hour (1,230 kilometres per hour).
When traveling through water, sound moves around four times faster than when it travels through air. The scientific study of sound waves is known as acoustics. The sound of thunder is produced by rapidly heated air surrounding lightning which expands faster than the speed of sound.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled the company’s first electric pickup truck. Cybertruck will come in three versions with 250 miles, 300 miles, and 500 miles of range. The truck will be rolling off the assembly line late 2021.⠀
The truck has a single motor rear-wheel drive with 250 miles of range, 7,500-pound towing capacity, and 0-60 mph capabilities in under 6.5 seconds or a dual motor all-wheel drive with 300 miles of range, 10,000-pound towing capacity, and 0-60 mph in under 4.5 seconds. The last option is the triple motor all-wheel drive with 500 miles of range, 14,000-pound towing capacity, and 0-60 mph in under 2.9 seconds.⠀
The truck can seat a total of six adults and the body is made of ultra-hard 30X cold-rolled stainless steel. The payload has a 3,500-pound capacity, with 100 cubic feet of storage space. The truck’s vault length is 6.5 feet, and it will have 4-inch suspension in either direction. ⠀
