Could you please check if this paragraph is possible in scientific English? Thank you, Writeacher.1) Superconduction consists of a particular physical phenomenon which characterizes only superconductors.2) These materials become superconductors when they are brought to the critical temperature (Tc) specific for each material. For example, mercury has a critical temperature of 4 K.3) Superconductors were discovered in 1911 by the scientist…., who, after liquefying helium, found out that mercury becomes a superconductor at 4 k.The superconduction is also linked to a critical current (ic) and to a critical magnetic field (HC).4) When a superconductor material is put in a magnetic field, which overcomes the critical magnetic field, or it is run by a current which is bigger than the critical one, it loses its state of superconductor. 5) Today three kinds of superconductors have been discovered: Type 1, Type 2 and high temperature superconductors.The first have a low critical temperature whereas the temperature of Type 2 is more than Type 6) Finally, high temperature superconductors have a temperature of around 100 K.
Writeacher, can you please check if the use of scientific English is OK. Thank you. 1) One of the other prominent scientists involved in the promotion of nanotechnology, Richard Smalley, has accused Drexler of ‘scaring our children’ and promulgating a vision of the future based on poor scientific reasoning. 2) As a matter of fact, currently there are no nanotechnological devices capable of self-replication.Yet philosophers, ethicists and many scientists frequently speak as if such objects exist now, or will in the very near future. 3) Other scientists think that the “grey goo” scenario is only a distraction, because people should focus on the current practices of science and technology, the need for careful oversight and deliberation that attends to current problems and practices, rather than imagine future scenarios.
Can you please check if the following statements on the English language are possible? Thank you very much.1) As for its origin, English is a Germanic language of the Indo-European family. 2)The history of the English language can be traced back (dates back to, goes back) to the arrival of three Germanic tribes to the British Isles during the 5th Century AD. 3)Angles, Saxons and Jutes crossed the North Sea from what is the present day Denmark and northern Germany. 4) As a consequence of the invasion by these Germanic tribes four dialects developed. 5) During the 7th and 8th centuries, Northumbria’s culture and language dominated Britain. 6)The Viking invasions of the 9th Century brought this domination to an end. Only Wessex remained as an independent kingdom.7) By the 10th Century, the West Saxon dialect became the official language of Britain. Written Old English developed in this period. 8)As a consequence of the Norman invasion of 1066, French became the language of the Norman aristocracy and added more vocabulary to English.9)As for the structure of the language, the Germanic form of plurals was eventually displaced by the French method of making plurals: adding an "es". 9)It wasn’t until the 14th Century that English became dominant in Britain. By the end of the 14th Century, the dialect of London had emerged as the standard dialect of what we now call Middle English.
