About the Virtual Reality & Cyber Space Gallery

PG Science City View
Virtual Reality Gallery

Virtual Reality & Cyber Space gallery is designed to provide fun, entertainment and education to people of all ages and backgrounds.

 

The gallery is built at a cost of Rs.2 crore and whole concept is conceived, designed and developed by the scientists of the Science City itself within a period of one and half year.

 

This gallery consists of following sections

 

1. Cyber Space

 

2. Virtual Reality Shadow Control

 

3. Virtual Game Stations

 

4. Virtual Laboratory

 

The section on Cyber space deals with revolving model of integrated circuit, How e-mail works, How ATM works and Image Scanner. Virtual Reality Shadow control contains six exhibits Marble Marshal, Molecular Bubbles, Virtual Butterflies, Shadow Harp, Virtual Sand and Magical Flowers based on shadow control.

 

Virtual laboratory enables visitors to conduct experiments with computers as if they were working in actual laboratories.

Benefits of these labs are:

• Pre-experiment "hands-on" experience for students before they go to the actual laboratory.

• No limitations to perform experiments for better understanding.

• Easily captured experimental data for students to write laboratory reports.

Laboratory Station 1

 

• Salt

1. Here twelve salt samples are given. You can detect the basic and acid radical present in it by performing the prior tests. The given samples content acid radicals like (a) Carbonate (b) Sulphide (c) Nitrate (d) Chloride (e) Sulphate And basic radicals like (a) Lead (b) Copper (c) Iron (d) Aluminium (e) Calcium (f) Magnesium

2. In “Test yourself” section you can perform salt analysis without any instructions as if you do in your examinations. After this experiment you can get a mark sheet according to your performance

 

• Chemical Kinetics In this section, you can study

1. the rate of a reaction based on (a) Size of the particles, (b) Catalyst

2. How equilibrium shifted between (a) ferric ions and thio-cyanide ions (b) hexa-aqoa cobalt ions [Co(H2O)6]2+ and chloride [Cl-] ions by changing the concentration of either ions.

3. The rate of reaction between sodium thiosulphate and hydrochloric acid with different temperature
