  • Speed Reading Skills

    Speed reading is traditionally looked upon highly and is seen as a great skill in the academic and professional community. There is a relationship between reading speed and retention when one holds the assumption that reading faster is better (McLaughlin, 1969; Smith, 1975). The capability of reading faster is possible but the quality of retaining the information read is variable (McLaughlin, 1969). The average person reads 200-250 words per minute (WPM) for upper intermediate grades and 300-350 WPM for adults with 70-80% comprehension accuracy (Carver, 1983; Lauer, 2008; Louise & Lauer, 1959; Shore, 1968; Smith, 1975). The question that remains is if a fast reader is, in fact, a “good” reader. Simply put, a good reader should be able…

  • Roller Coaster Ride Essay

    pass each planet in the solar system while being forced up and over hills, loops, and turns. Riders will start on a hill reaching about 50 ft, reaching the most potential energy they will have on the entire ride. Following after that, they will plummet down the hill. As a consequence, they will experience the feeling of weightlessness, free fall, huge amounts of kinetic energy, and air resistance. The drop gives you an instantaneous speed of 56 miles per hour. This is also where you reach your…

  • Analysis Of The Distance Vs. Time Graph

    difference is greater at a value of 0.42. Therefore, the velocity will also be at a larger amount. When plugged into the formula, the velocity is equal to 0.74 m/s, therefore supporting this analysis. In the result of this examination process, the maximum average velocity achieved is at 1.2 meters as elucidated before. The second graph of the velocity verse time diagram as to the distance verse time chart correspondingly shows the acceleration of the cart and the maximum speed achieved. This…
