Python is a popular programming language in sciences, engineering and social sciences to analyze data. It is also a popular scripting language in web application and computer-aided design communities. Python is a great first programming language to learn as the programming syntax are easily readable. It is also freely available and there are loads of learning materials in YouTube, GitHub, stack overflow etc.
Kinetic phenomena are ubiquitous in science and engineering research. A nice introduction to chemical kinetics is presented in this wikipedia page. Modelling kinetic systems involves solving set of coupled ordinary differential equation either analytically, for small systems, or numerically, for large systems. Scientific experiments under controlled environment are able to isolate various kinetic pathways andContinue reading “Numerical Integration using Python”
After the successful colorimetry outreach in Kathmandu last year, RCP was back in Kathmandu this year too (October 2019) for another outreach event. Similar to the last year, RCP brought the colorimeter kits from the University of Bristol, UK. However, this year the colorimeter instruments were purchased using the Natural Environmental Research Council grant NE/P013104/1Continue reading “Further Colorimetry Outreach in Nepal”
Nepal is a landlocked developing country in south Asia between China and India. It is home to 25 million people of various ethnicities including Gurkhas and Sherpas, and to the tallest mountain range in the world. The Bristol ChemLabS outreach was performed at the Loyola Secondary School in Kathmandu, in collaboration with the Department ofContinue reading “Colorimetry Outreach in Nepal”
