    GRAVITATIONAL WAVES, HOW CLOSE ARE WE? PHSCS 222 Collective Paper November 23, 1999 #123 #272 #666 #895 The Detection of Gravitational Waves, How Close Are We? Since the realization that the general theory of relativity predicts gravitational waves, there have been attempts to actually detect these waves. Indirect observations have been made that support their existence but no direct measurement. This paper gives a brief explanation of gravitational waves and discusses the current condition of the experimental search for gravitational waves. It deals with the newest techniques that will enable their detection. The focus of the paper is on three experimental groups: LIGO, VIRGO, and LISA. From our research of these groups…

    nature of short gamma-ray bursts (SGRBs). It wasn’t until 2005 that a breakthrough in the information on SGRBs was made when the first afterglow of a SGRB was observed. The data showed that SGRBs are those that last less than two seconds, are typically found in galaxies with an assortment of star formation properties, and do not share the characteristics of GRBs originating from a star collapse. These findings supported the interpretation that SGRBs must be a result of collision or of two…

    Prominently exemplified in Christina Rossetti’s Goblin Market is the deep bond that is held between sisters from birth. No matter how deep a bond is between siblings, however, something will always try to tear them apart. In the case of Laura and Lizzie, Laura falls to temptation at the hands of goblin men. Nevertheless, before things get better, they will always get worse. After tasting the goblin men’s fruit, Laura’s life is sent into a downward spiral as she begins to decay both mentally and…

    The purpose of this lab is to solve for the equilibrium constant of a reaction between iron (iii) ions and thiocyanate ions. The lab is divided into two parts: one section recording absorbance of reference solutions and the other part for the absorbance of test solutions. The reference solutions were created through the mixing of excess iron (iii) nitrate (Fe(NO3)3) with a known concentration of potassium thiocyanate (KSCN) in order to push the reaction to completion; the initial concentration…

    Life under Saddam Hussein in Iraq was full of immense terror, fear, and distrust. Political dissenters of the regime were forced into detention centers, facing some of the most inhumane treatment, while leaving their families in fear and question. First, Iraqi families of political dissenters in detention centers, such as the family of Amer, were left in fearful wondering on the condition of their loved one. Families were not given any news or updates on their loved one in prison, nor were…

    plot should look when reaction goes to completion. Did [Pb] approach a constant value? Behaviour of [Pb]-time plot indicates which samples to omit. Which α function best fit results? The origin of our two alpha functions has been derived and explained in the MTRL 359 Lab Manual, the mathematical significance of each function are as follows: The above equations are [15] and [21] respectively, where equation [15] is a description of the Diffusion Limited Rate Model and equation [21] is a…

    blood. It binds different types of drugs for delivery to various parts of the body. One of these drugs is warfarin, a blood anticoagulant. This research project’s focus was on the interaction between BSA and warfarin derivatives; our assumption was that the protein binding site has different affinities for different warfarin derivatives; this was to be determined by comparing the equilibrium constants (Keq) and the Gibbs’ free energies of a number of warfarin derivatives. To study this, four…

    The Ideal Gas Law

    • 752 Words
    • 4 Pages

    The Ideal Gas Law relates several variables of state of an ideal gas with the following equation: P V = n R T, where P is the pressure of the gas in atmospheres, V is the volume of the gas in liters, n is moles of the gas, and T is the temperature of the gas in Kelvin degrees. R is the ideal gas constant. The Ideal Gas Law is a combined summary of Boyle’s Law, Charles’s Law, and the Avogadro’s Law. This Law works best under low pressure, room temperature (298K) environments because these…

    may be required. Increased dissociation kinetics is a different goal from purification. It cannot be achieved either by iminobiotin since the pH in the body is not much different or by monomeric avidin since at least two binding sites on avidin are required for its bridging function. To apply the avidin-biotin system to tumor pre-targeting strategies, protein engineering approaches have been used to further tailor avidin/streptavidin. For example, site-directed mutagenesis techniques have been…

    been and are currently being developed. One group of theories contends that the value of this energy must be constant, meaning the acceleration is ubiquitous and isotropic across the universe. Contrarily, scalar field theories deem that the values are anisotropic, or the acceleration is variant throughout the universe; this suggests the idea that there may be some sort of fifth field or force producing the effect (Dynamics…
