Wireless Charging

Also called inductive charging, wireless charging or wireless power transfer is a technique to charge battery-powered electronics without a physical connection (almost). There are no physical cables and connectors in the mix, which results in a much tidier and convenient charging environment. However, not all devices compatible with wireless charging have the capability built into […]

Ionic Bond

Also called electrovalent bond, an ionic bond is the electrostatic attraction existing between ions, forcing them to bond together. In other words, when an electron moves from one atom to the atom of another element, the atom losing the electron gets positively charged and the one gaining gets negatively charged. The atom that’s a part […]

Chemical Compound

A chemical compound is a substance formed by the chemical bond (entailing electron-sharing) between atoms of two or more different elements. In other words, an atom merges with the atom of other element(s) to form a compound. If the atoms have the same parent element, then the substance isn’t a compound. For example, h20 (water) […]

Sodium Chloride

Sodium chloride (NaCl) is an ionic compound comprising elemental sodium (39.34 percent) and chlorine (60.67 percent). This combination of sodium and chlorine can be available naturally in underground deposits or sea water, or manufactured by making sodium chemically react with chlorine. The mineral is naturally available from a couple of sources – sea and land-based […]
