measuring the maximum horizontal distance much easier by being able to slow down the collision. Place the toy car at the top of the track and let go of the toy car. The car will begin to go down the track because of acceleration due to gravity. The car will collide with the spring and cause the spring to bend some horizontal distance. Repeat this process two additional times for a total of three attempts. After the three attempts have been completed, use the force sensor and the Capstone ® Software in order to determine the actual tension force provided to the string. Starting at an overall stretched string displacement of 0.0 cm, increase the force provided to the string such that the string displacement increases by 1.0 cm. Repeat this process until the overall string displacement becomes 15.0 cm. Plot the tension force produced from the Capstone Software over the total horizontal displacement of the string at that particular instant. Analyze the plot produced in excel in order to determine the work in stretching the elastic…

Dmax and 40 % of a maximum dose. Then in-line and cross-lines profiles are measured at these depths, and the position of the 50% level was determined for these profiles. The positions of the 50% for the profiles are compared and the offsets are then displayed. 3.3.2.2 Voltage Diode and micro-diamond detectors are semiconductor detectors thus no voltage is applied, CC01 required 300 volts to allow for optimal data collection. 3.3.2.3 Dose rate The CC01 and micro-diamond have little or no dose…

The Effect of the Amount of Light on Sowbugs After Being Shone on Them for 30 Seconds Another name for Sowbugs is Porcellio Laevis and these creatures are land living crustaceans, mostly aquatic invertebrates, such as the lobster, crab, and crayfish. They are found in most parts of the world, but are most common throughout North America. Since sowbugs are crustaceans, they breathe through gills. Gills are the primary breathing way for all crustaceans and they must be kept moist (4). In addition,…

Being a broke college student isn’t fun. Being a broke college athlete is worse. Broke college students aren’t just needing the money but they need the balance of time, work, and study also. No college student, let alone student athletes would ever turn down the thought of being paid for their services. So why isn’t the NCAA trying to help our college athletes out? College isn’t cheap. College students have financial obligations outside of the classroom; being on scholarship does not lighten the…

Introduction The purpose of this assignment was to determine whether a site located on LIT Tipperary’s Thurles campus, was suitable or not for an onsite wastewater treatment system. The assessment onsite predicts the wastewater flow through the subsoil and into the subsurface materials if a wastewater treatment system was to be put in place (EPA, 2009). The site characterisation process our class used is only applicable to a single house. I was assigned to the T3 test hole. The result in the…

units along the south wall in order to look at and better understand the stratigraphy. To start the excavation, the uppermost layer, the sod, was removed. Using sod cutters, the layer of grass and roots was removed from each unit. It was at this depth that the excavation then really started. After the sod was removed, units were typically at a depth of four or six centimetres, and then the first arbitrary level was getting it down to ten centimetres. The excavation proceeded by using trowels,…

these results did not happen by chance. The large F value of 762.65 shows the large differences between the groups, while the P value of less than 0.0001 demonstrates that the bolus materials have different Dmax’s. Conclusion The purpose of the experiment is to close the gap of information between Superflab and the alternative bolus materials and the results help answer the question of which bolus material is best to use in radiation therapy. The results from this study are consistent with…

Question How does distilled water, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2, stabilized, at 3% concentration as a dilute solution), and rubbing alcohol (70% isopropyl alcohol) affect leaves detached from their trees? Hypothesis If I submerge leaves in distilled water, then the leaves will become wet and softer (relative to their original state), because that is what happens to detached leaves after it rains. If I submerge leaves in hydrogen peroxide, then the leaves will become whitened and the distinct…

Calculations: In order to calculate the mass of “Object X” from the orbit of its moon the first step needed to be taken is to have specified units for distance (m), time (s), and mass (kg). This needs to be done because they are the units Kepler’s Third Law require in order to be able to obtain the mass of “Object X” properly. The units given in the introduction are in kilometers and days. Therefor the radius has to be converted to Kepler’s Third Law values, so from kilometers to meter and days…
