However, the temperature of the inside wall has little change during the whole solar day
when the thermal conductivity of PCM is as low as 0.1 W/(m x k).
It is synchronized with the solar day
through a process called entrainment.
There are two reasons for variation of a solar day
length throughout the year.
* Solar day
(24 hours = 1440 min), the period of daily rotation of the terrestrial observer together with the Earth with respect to the Sun;
Later observations by VLBI nevertheless revealed that the core's flattening is slightly larger (by about 4 per cent), leading to RFCN period of about 430 solar days
. The value 430.21 was chosen to calculate the recently adopted model of nutation IAU2000 (Mathews et al., 2002, further referred to as MHB).

2) leads to appearance of similar histograms with two clearly distinguished periods, which are equal to a sidereal day (1,436 min) and a solar day
Scientists have found that earth is taking a longer time to complete one day or technically a solar day
. So they decided to add an extra second or leap second to compensate for the earth's slow rotation.
An extra second, or "leap" second, will be added at midnight to account for the fact that it is taking Earth longer and longer to complete one full turn-a day-or, technically, a solar day
The 20 per cent balance includes grey water recycling, photovoltaic power generation, solar day
lighting harvesting via fiber optics or solar air-conditioning require government incentives as it is better to support these technologies in lieu of subsidising electric power as it is currently happen," he said.
The human circadian clock operates on a period about 20 minutes longer than one day, which must be synchronized according to the light-dark cycle of the solar day
, due to which someone whose clock runs faster than a solar day
must delay it on a daily basis, and vice versa.
