In conversations, arguments, tests, academic achievements, recreational quizzes & games, and in the execution of daily tasks, displaying one’s own intellect is vital. But how well do such events measure an individual’s intellect. What defines intellect in the first place. Intellect can be divided into three forms: knowledge, wisdom, and opinion....   [tags: Philosophy] 470 words

Chemistry Investigation on Neutralisation Reaction - Chemistry Investigation on Neutralisation Reaction Plan Neutralisation is the reaction that occurs when an acid has its acidity, that is its hydrogen ions removed by, another chemical containing OH- hydroxide ions. Chemicals that can cancel out an acid in this way are: bases (metal oxides or hydroxides), alkalis (bases that dissolve), metals (e.g. magnesium) or metal carbonates (e.g. marble chips) All of these have a similar way of removing the hydrogen from the acids (they swap it or their metal atoms) but the reactions are quite different....   [tags: Papers] 2294 words

Concentrations Affects on Reaction Rates - Concentrations Affects on Reaction Rates In the reaction between hydrochloric acid and magnesium, the hydrochloric acid will dissolve the magnesium and produce hydrogen gas. All chemical reactions involve reactants which when mixed do cause a chemical reaction which will make products. In my case, the reactants are hydrochloric acid and magnesium ribbon. The chemical reaction takes place when the magnesium ribbon is dropped into the hydrochloric acid. The products that are formed during this reaction are hydrogen gas and magnesium chloride....   [tags: Papers] 1165 words

Investigating Resistance of a Wire - Investigating Resistance of a Wire Aim: To investigate how the resistance of a piece of resistance wire depends on length and to find the length of wire needed to make the required resistance. Prediction: I predict that when you increase the length of the resistance wire the resistance will increase. I am predicting that this will occur because of the preliminary investigation where we found that in a series circuit resistance wires put together produce a higher resistance....   [tags: Papers] 1484 words

Species Diversity and Abundance of Ground Flora in Coppices of Different Ages - Species Diversity and Abundance of Ground Flora in Coppices of Different Ages Introduction: Coppicing is the removal of the canopy layer - such as hazel, ash and lime to nearly ground level. This provides timber but also allows the trees to re-grow with many more shoots instead of just the one trunk. This cycle takes about ten years which gives the ground layer a chance to flourish. Hypotheses:There will be less species diversity and abundance in the old coppice. Explanation:There are many reasons for my hypotheses which I will try to scientifically prove....   [tags: Papers] 1246 words

I will use the same wire for all my measurements. It is important to have a fair test, so the cross-sectional area of the wire must be the same for all measurements because as the cross-sectional area increase the resistance decrease. It is also important to have the wire made of the same material because different materials have different resistance, nichrome is the good conductor of electricity .The temperature also affect the resistance because when it increase the resistance in the wire increase....   [tags: Papers] 555 words

Finding Mass Using The Inertial Balance - Finding Mass Using the Inertial Balance Theory: Physics can be referred to as the study of various properties of matter and energy. Matter can best be described by looking at the mass of an object. Mass is the amount of material that is in an object. Mass can be found by using a spring scale, a balance scale, or an inertial balance. Inertia is the resistance by mass to any change in its state of motion. Scientific Law states that mass and inertial forces are directly proportional. The purpose of the inertial balance is to measure the different inertias between different masses therefore providing a mathematical and very accurate method of measuring mass....   [tags: essays research papers] 583 words

The Aesthetics of Pop Music - “It All Sounds The Same These Days!”      In just about every home in America at just about any given time the words: “It all sounds the same these days!” is uttered to a teenage child, while the mother is screaming “Turn it down!” in the background. The teenager storms to his bedroom and turns the radio up to full volume and thinks, “They just don’t get it!” Then proceeds to dance around the room singing into the hairbrush.

REVERSIBLE BONDED STRAIN GAGE - ABSTRACT For accurately measuring thermal strains, particularly on large structures where welded strain gages cannot be used, a reversible bonded strain gage was developed. Basically it is a special polyimide strain gage which is same on both the base side and cover side so that it can be used both ways. It can be used to measure strains at temperatures under 250oC (482oF) of a structure made of aluminum alloys or composites (to which its difficult to weld a strain gage).These gages can be can be peeled after taking required apparent strain measurements in a furnace and can be attached reverse side up at a required point on a structure....   [tags: essays research papers] 2824 words

Standardized Testing in Schools - Views on Standardized Testing Standardized testing has long been a controversial method of assessment in our schools. Such tests are important indicators of student achievement and aptitude. However, some standardized test scores have been misused as a manner in which to track students, allocate school funds, and even determine teacher pay. Standardized tests, when used appropriately and for the right reasons, can adequately determine a student's present level of strengths and weaknesses and his or her aptitude for certain abilities....   [tags: Standardized Testing Essays]

Acceleration of a Trolley - Acceleration of a Trolley Plan An unbalanced force causes an object to accelerate. The acceleration happens in the same direction as the resultant (or unbalanced) force. The size of this depends on the mass of the object and the size of the force. The force on a small object is bigger than the same force acting on a bigger object. If the mass stays the same but the force gets bigger, the acceleration also increases. The equation to find acceleration is: [IMAGE][IMAGE] when [IMAGE]= acceleration, [IMAGE]= velocity at the end, [IMAGE]= velocity at the start, and [IMAGE]= time The variables which could affect the acceleration of a trolley down a ramp are: T...   [tags: Papers] 958 words

Trolley Investigation - Trolley Investigation Choosing a Variable Before I begin the investigation, I must first decide which variable I should investigate. Variables can be divided into 2 major groups: dependant variables and independent variables. In measuring the behaviour of a trolley the dependant variable is speed. This is because the speed will change when other variables are changed. An independent variable is a variable which cannot be affected by other variables. There are many independent variables in measuring the behaviour of a trolley and I must first assess which one would be a suitable one to investigate: * Shape of the trolley- the shape and aerodynamics of the tr...   [tags: Papers] 1738 words

Pump Characteristics - Pump Characteristics INTRODUCTION In industry, the performance specifications for a particular pump may be known, but the tests are usually based on water as the pumping medium. For liquids of significantly higher viscosity than water, these performance curves may only be accurate at certain flow rates, or they might not be valid at all, and it might be necessary to recalibrate the specifications for higher viscosity liquids. The purpose of this experiment is to examine the performance and characteristics of a centrifugal pump, its motor, and the corresponding piping system, used to pump an ethylene glycol solution....   [tags: essays papers]

student - The earliest known measurement from the earth to sun was in 200 B.C. Aristarchus of Samos, a man of astronomy and Mathematics, made this discovery. He believed the Earth revolved around the Sun. Aristarchus of Samos used what is known today as right-angle trigonometry. By connecting Earth to Moon, Moon to Sun, and Sun to Earth, one forms a right triangle as shown below. The measure of angle “a” is 90°; an observer on Earth can then measure the angle measure of “b”. Then for one to find the distance between Earth and Sun simply find the sine of angle “c.” Aritarchus of Samos would have expressed this a little differently for the sole fact of modern Trigonometry had not yet been discovered....   [tags: essays research papers] 446 words
