  • Electrical Impulses

    action potentials spontaneously and coordinating contractions during the cardiac cycle. All the cardiac muscle fibers in each region of the heart are electrically linked together. The intercalated disks are connections that electrically join the muscle fibers of the heart into a single unit that can conduct electrical impulses through the entire wall of the heart chamber without stopping. Four structures are embedded in the wall of the heart and responsible for generating the action potentials…

  • Calorimeter Lab

    captured by the water. Literature Review Kinetic energy is the energy of motion. The kinetic energy of an object is energy that is being used. Potential energy is stored energy that it is not in motion, but has the potential to be in motion. There are other types of potential energy like gravitational, elastic, and chemical. “Gravitational potential energy is the energy stored in an object as the result of its vertical position or height. The energy is stored…

  • Process Of Non-Steroid Hormone Action

    Hormones operate using a type of mechanism. Releasing these hormones can trigger actions in particular target cells. One receptor on the cell membrane binds to one type of hormone. The binding hormones change the shape of the receptor, which causes the response to the hormone. Through the process of steroid hormone action, the hormone goes through a certain process of two steps. The hormone binds to receptors on the nuclear membrane once it is inside the cell that produces an…

  • Multiple Sclerosis Case Study: The Spinal Nervous System

    1. The peripheral nervous system, which is divided into the sensory and motor divisions, is involved in physical sensation. Sensory impulses move though the body by being stimulated by a receptor in the skin. It then travels to the sensory neurons and through the afferent fibers, were it will end up at the spinal cord as well as the brain. 2. The motor division of the nervous system are involved in skeletal muscle movement. Motor impulses move through efferent fibers. A motor unit is a motor…

  • Explain The Membrane Potential In The Rmp

    Membrane Potential in the RMP The membrane potential in the Resting Membrane Potential, or the RMP, is the little bit of voltage or electrical potential going across from the membrane of its regular resting voltage. This is caused because of gradients that make the ions go across the membrane of a cell through ion channels because ions are not soluble so they have to go through channels. These channels are called ion channels that are watery pores allowing ions to get through according to their…

  • Mini Basketball Lab Report

    In the first experiment, the acceleration of a falling mini-basketball, the results gathered disagreed with my predicted outcome. Originally, I could not imagine how the graph might appear. I could not visualize an object falling and what its acceleration, position, and velocity might be on the graph. However, after completing the first experiment, I realized that the graphs would look somewhat the same in relation to the basketball since this object was not affected as much as the lighter…

  • How My Machine Worked: Rube Goldberg Project

    My simple task was to pop a balloon. The item we used to pop the balloon was a mousetrap. I am going to go step by step through how I created my Rube Goldberg machine. First, we started out with a ramp that we dropped the ball on. That was our potential energy. Next, we had a ball drop down a tub at approximately 180°. That was mechanical energy. After that, the ball went through an elbow and hit another ball causing more mechanical energy and thermal energy from a ball hitting the other ball.…

  • Important Vocabulary: The Important Nervous System

    Important Vocabulary (highlighted in the handout): Stimulus, neurons, dendrites, neurotransmitters, axon, myelin, action potential, graded potential, transmembrane potential, neuroglia, cerebrum, spinal cord What is the central nervous system? It’s a system which consists of the nerves in the brain and spinal cord. This system only makes up about 3% of a human’s body weight but serves a vital function, gathering information about and reacting to its environment and any stimulus. Don’t Shoot the…

  • The Potenning Factor In The Different Forms Of Power Water And Hydroelectric Energy

    side of the dam. This relatively higher elevation is what gives the water the potential energy to turn the turbine when it begins to flow ("Hydroelectric Energy."). Potential energy is calculated by the force due to gravity multiplied by the change in height of the matter. So, a reservoir of just 10 cubic meters of water that is 50 meters above the river on the other side and flowing at just 1 meter per second, has a potential power of 49,000 watts for every second that it flows. Under these…

  • Benefits Of Kinetic Energy

    pulling it in the opposite direction. As it reaches the highest point of swing, it has maximum gravitational potential energy because that is the highest point from the ground. When it reaches the lowest point of swing, the pendulum has the maximum kinetic energy because this is when it needs the most energy to push it in each direction. However, the pendulum has the minimum gravitation potential energy because it is closer to the…
