Uses of Spherical Mirrors 
Category : Home & Garden 
Spherical mirrors, sometimes called convex or fisheye mirrors, bend
outward over a rounded surface. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes,
and they are shaped either as partial sections of the sphere or as a whole
ball. The spherical mirror at Bristol's Millennium Square is a famous
example of a giant reflective sphere. Beyond artistic pieces, the spherical
mirror is a helpful device found i

Uses of Spherical Magnets 
Category : Hobbies, Games & Toys 
Spherical magnets are like other magnets in structure. They have a north
and a south pole and are attracted to iron, cobalt, nickel and other
ferromagnetic materials, as well as other magnets. Their spherical shape,
however, lends them to some special uses that other magnets aren't designed
for. Magnet BraceletSpherical magnets can form a long chain, with the
negative pole of each magnet attrac

How to Make a Spherical Map 
Category : Hobbies, Games & Toys 
Spherical maps, also referred to as globes, can display landforms visually
in a more accurate way. If you are teaching students about cartography or
world geography, it can be helpful to provide your students with a handson
project making a spherical globe out of craft materials. Students can paint
landforms onto the globe to show how the Earth appears in its natural form,
as opposed to a flat, l

Spherical Harmonic Functions 
Category : Hobbies, Games & Toys 
Spherical harmonics are solutions to a few of the partial differential
equations used in physics, such as the Laplace, Helmholtz and Schrodinger
equations, in which spherical coordinates are used. Spherical coordinates
describe the coordinates on a sphere. The general procedure is to rewrite
the partial differential equation as two equations, where one is a function
of the radial component and the

Types of Spherical Mirrors 
Category : Hobbies, Games & Toys 
The two types of spherical mirrors are concave and convex. Each type
reflects images in a different fashion. This is due to the curve of the
mirror. A good example of how a curved mirror alters an image can be seen
in a fun house mirror. The image reflected back can make a person look tall
and skinny or short and fat. ConcaveA concave mirror is one that curves
in like a bowl. The image is seen

How to Calculate Spherical Harmonics 
Category : Hobbies, Games & Toys 
The spherical harmonics are a set of orthogonal functions useful as "basis
functions." Any wellbehaved function can be expressed as the sum of a
series of basis functions. The spherical harmonics are analogous to the
Fourier series, except the spherical harmonics form an appropriate basis
set for situations with spherical symmetry. One important example: the
motion of electrons about atomic nucle

Definition of Spherical Geometry 
Category : Hobbies, Games & Toys 
In mathematics, spherical geometry is the study of lines, angles and shapes
on a spherical surface. Spherical geometry differs from the more familiar
plane or Euclidean geometry in several important ways, mostly having to do
with the behavior of lines and angles. Spherical geometry has a wide range
of realworld applications, particularly in mapping the surface of the
Earth and other planets. E

How to Assemble a Spherical Puzzle 
Category : Hobbies, Games & Toys 
A spherical puzzle is frequently a world globe puzzle using jigsaw puzzle
pieces. These puzzles, once assembled, make complete and accurate world
globes, which can be turned any direction for display. The globe puzzles
are 3D puzzles, so they do take up form and space. While the 3D puzzle
appears complicated at first glance, solving it is nearly the same as
solving a 2D puzzle. You organize the pi

How to Make a Spherical Ottoman 
Category : Home & Garden 
Ottomans can serve as footrests or even as formal coffee tables. To add a
playful accent to a room, you can make a spherical ottoman that matches or
complements your other furniture’s upholstery. You won’t be
able to set a tray of coffee on it, but you can rest your feet on it or use
it as an extra seat. If you place against a wall or couch, you can use it
as a backrest when you sit on
