Induction Heating

An alternating current passing through a copper coil induces a magnetic field around the coil per Faraday's Law of Induction. A piece of metal placed within that oscillating magnetic field will experience the opposite effect as an electric current is induced within the metal. These eddy currents passing through the metal induce an opposing magnetic field around the piece of metal and cause it to heat up through a process known as Joule heating. The stronger the magnetic field, the more heat generation.

When a piece of aluminum is placed within a magnetic field generated using a 1.6 kW power inverter operating at 204 kHz, it rapidly heats and eventually melts at 660 °C. The molten aluminum reaches a final temperature of 1,200 °C before the current is finally shut off.

LOOK AT ME: I'M A FUCKING PLANT!!!!
Bean Germination

Germination is the process by which a plant grows from a seed or similar structure. Initiation of germination is highly dependent upon internal and external conditions such as temperature, availability of water and oxygen, and sometimes light intensity. Many seeds remain dormant until the appropriate environmental conditions are attained in order to increase viability.

Here, a kidney bean can be seen growing over the course of 25 days in a soil cross-section. Beans are the seeds of legumes, which are flowering plants in the family Fabaceae. During the first week of growth, the subsurface root structure is established to increase the seedling's access to nutrients and to provide support for the emergence of the stem. As the aboveground portion develops, significant motion can be seen as the plant grows towards light and nutrients through a process known as tropism.
