Chooz (French: [ʃo]) was a short baseline neutrino oscillation experiment in Chooz, France. Its major result was setting limits on the neutrino oscillation parameters responsible for changing electron neutrinos into other neutrinos. Specifically, it found that sin2(2θ13) < 0.17 for large δm2 and δm2 > 8×10−4 eV2 for maximal mixing. Results were published in 1999. The Double Chooz experiment continues to take data using the same lab space. (Wikipedia).

Gravity Filtration and Vacuum Filtration

The first laboratory technique that we will learn together is a very simple one, filtration. This is how we separate a mixture of liquids and solids. There are two common ways a chemist will perform filtration, those being gravity filtration and vacuum filtration. These are very easy to un

I still don't get it evaluating expressions

👉 Learn how to evaluate mathematics expressions. A mathematics expression is a finite combination of numbers and symbols formed following a set of operations or rules. To evaluate a mathematics expression means to obtain the solution to the expression given the value(s) of the variable(s)

Proving Triangle Congruence and Similarity

Now we know about different kinds of triangles and their characteristics, so we should be able to look at two triangles and say whether they are similar, congruent, or unrelated. For more information on what that means and how to do it, check out this clip! It's chock-full of theorems. Wa
