How a photocopier works

- Photocopiers rely on static electricity to perform an incredibly complex process every time you press the copy button. Photocopiers use a photo receptor drum, a metal drum coated in a layer of semiconductor which is usually selenium. The photoconductivity of selenium means that when illuminated photons cause it to conduct electricity but when it is in the dark it is an insulator. When photons hit the Selenium electrons are liberated allowing current to pass through. When you press COPY on a photocopier a complex process begins....   [tags: essays research papers]

Because the wavelength is a distance, and frequency is a time, when they are multiplied, the velocity of the wave must be found. An example of this relation is a slinky. When the waves are more separated and it takes less time for the wave to vibrates, the slinky is clearly moving more quickly. 2.Transverse waves are waves that have particles moving perpendicular to the wave motion, while longitudinal waves have particles that move parallel....   [tags: Physics]
