Physically/Chemically how does rice dry out a phone

Hey, My phone got wet from rainwater in my pocket the other day and everyone's always said it was supposed to fix wet phones. The thing is I don't understand why that's supposed to be true. My roommmate and I were discussing it and he kept saying it just dries it out, that the water is attracted to ...

I've got this project in my computer aided engineering class where we're supposed to design a tennis ball machine on top of a 5 foot tripod. It's supposed to be able to randomly aim the ball and cover the entire court. Being a mechanical engineering student the problem suggests we use a motor driven...

Electricity Question from Bear Grylls "Worst Case Scenario"

Ok, I know it's Bear Grylls, so that's a clue right there that things may not be entirely accurate. But one of the scenarios is a car hit a powerline and is now electrified. That I'm fine with. Then he says that the ground around the car is electrified and is dangerous up to 30 feet away. I'm just g...
