A Nobel cause

First | Previous | 2017-06-21 | Next | Latest

Strip by: David Morgan-Mar, Andrew Coker

T-Rex: The photoelectric effect...
T-Rex: FOR 10 YEAR OLDS!
T-Rex: When a photon hits an atom with energy higher than the ionisation energy, it ejects an electron, which is then free to form a current in the material.
Utahraptor: 10 years olds don't want to listen to that!
Utahraptor: Put some dinosaurs in it or something.
T-Rex: Oh.
T-Rex: But I don't know anything about those.
