  • Counter Euclid's Elements

    Euclid states, “a surface is that which has length and breadth only”(22). The term surface is one that is controversial in science today. Due to theories such as string theory, the idea of infinite dimensions is a possibility in modern science. Euclid does not define surface with the possibility of numerous dimensions therefore his specific belief of a surface can be questioned. Because a reader in the modern era is able to use current science to possibly question Euclid, again the reader can…

  • Mercury's Surface Geology

    Mercury 's Surface Geology: according to the information gathered by the probes sent to Mercury, this planet has a surface that resembles in some manner the surface of our Moon, with craters and maria as its most prominent features. Furthermore, there are other structures that, albeit not as common as impact craters, make up the surface of Mercury, such as vents - that are thought to be the source for magma-carved valleys on Mercury - and irregular depressions named "hollows", probably generated…

  • Surface And Body Forces

    Material Point notion If we consider a body with volume ”V” which separates parts of a physical space with its surface “A”, the material point “P” is an internal point in this body which has volume ∆V and mass ∆m. Figure 1 depicts part of a body discretized with material points. Figure 1 Discretization in a material point method simulations Physical properties of materials…

  • Reflective Essay: Under The Surface

    Under the Surface The word literacy can cause an overwhelming amount of stress in one's mind. Growing up, I have felt the pressure weigh on me even when I began to think of the word literacy. This thought of pressure and stress has caused me to become unmotivated when being motivated is the key element to reading and writing. I had it set in my mind at which there was no purpose behind literacy. I just saw it as lines smothered together and people would proclaim them as “literature”. As I was…

  • Surface Tension Effect Essay

    This implies the film thickness vanishes that this critical value and then the motion becomes impossible. One of the main objectives of this study is to discuss the surface tension effect, according to thermosolutal Marangoni convection effect, on the motion. The increase of the temperature surface tension parameter and the concentration surface tension parameter means a decrease in the surface tension according to the negative values of the coefficients and . So, the reduction of the…

  • Impervious Surfaces In Urban Environment

    As urban sprawl continues, paved streets and uniform rooftops expand relentlessly onward, covering the land with impervious surfaces. “Impervious surfaces are mainly constructed surfaces--rooftops, sidewalks, roads, and parking lots--covered by impenetrable materials such as asphalt, concrete, and stone” (Barnes, Morgan, and Roberge 3). Every new roofed structure, every new sidewalk, and every new road adds a new water blockade. This seal of man made material slowly covering the earth prevents…

  • The Definitions Of Surfaction And Surface Tension

    Surfactant Agents I. Definitions a. Surfactant: A surface-active agent that lowers surface tension i. Examples 1. soap 2. detergent b. Surface Tension: Force caused by attraction between like molecules that occurs at liquid-gas interfaces and that holds the liquid surface intact i. Units of Measure: dynes/centimeter (dyn/cm) 1. the force required to cause a 1 cm rupture in the surface film ii. a droplet forms because a liquid’s molecules are more attracted to each other than the surrounding…
