    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…

  • Analysis Of Gamma-Ray Bursts

    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…

    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…

  • Bovine Serum Albumin

    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

    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…

  • Michael Moss's The Extraordinary Science Of Addictive Junk Food

    Zainab Jafri Mr. Ballinger ENG-101- ML 15 September, 2016 Manipulations to Serve Gratifications The tendency to exploit those that are vulnerable is highly practiced by corporations in the United States to gain success. In Michael Moss’s The Extraordinary Science of Addictive Junk Food, it is delineated how the food conglomerate, Oscar Meyer, led by executive Bob Drane, manufactured and marketed the famous product that is known as “Lunchables.” In interviews with Drane and his daughter,…

  • Chemical Equilibrium Lab Report

    a given Chemical Equilibrium at a given temperature, keq can be calculated that will be constant no matter the initial values of the reactants and products. For a reaction: the equilibrium constant, . When a reaction has not yet equilibrium, or to test whether it has, an equilibrium quotient can be obtained using the same formula to obtain the reaction quotient, to determine whether a reaction will proceed or isf it is at equilibrium.…

  • Biotin Vs Avidin Essay

    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…

  • Albert Einstein's Theory Of General Relativity

    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…

  • The Role Of Irony In Shirley Jackson's The Lottery

    Thousands of stories are written and published every year but only few become ingrained into millions of readers minds. What makes a story so memorable? For most good books and short stories, there is always a universal message or theme that draws interest and captivates an audience. Jackson’s “The Lottery” is no exception. “The Lottery” is celebrated as one of the most controversial and brilliant short stories of the 20th century. Using characters, symbols, and irony, “The Lottery” shares…
