  • The Tidal Effects Of Water Waves On The Surface Of The Moon

    When the mound of water has reached the highest point is called high tide. On the side of the earth opposite the moon, the centrifugal force caused by the earth's rotation produces another mound of water and high tide on the opposite side of the earth. Somewhere in between these two high tides are two flat areas on the surface of the ocean, these are called low tides. The earth's nearby moon is about 2.17 tines as effective as the m ore massive sun in raising tides on the earth, even though the sun exerts a much greater total force on the earth than does the moon. Tides are raised in the earth's solid crust and atmosphere as well as in the oceans. Every body in the universe has some tidal effect. Because gravity tugs on nearby things more strongly than on distant things, the oceans closest to the moon feel the greatest attraction to the moon. Being fluid, these nearby oceans move upward in response to the moon's pull, until there is a balance between the upward force from the moon and the downward force from the earth.

  • 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…

  • Unit 1 Swimming Research Paper

    For my mathematical exploration paper, I have decided to base it on the topic of swimming as it can be affiliated with many mathematical components. However, I was profoundly interested in determining the optimal kicking angle as it caught my recognition. As I further explored this topic, I decided to endeavour to connect a swimmer’s water movement with the quantity of water being pushed around against the flow. As a swimmer myself, I was greatly interested in determining the optimal angle to…

  • Solutions To Soil Erosion

    erosion is one of the most serious threats in our world. Humans cause 40% of soil erosion. Soil erosion is topsoil, which is organic soil made up with rich nutrients. Erosion can be caused by careless farming techniques that lead to water erosion. When it is raining and you are walking to class you can see soil erosion where they have been working beside the English building. Soil erosion and water erosion is practically the same thing. No one will ever notice soil erosion because nobody ever…

  • Environmental Impacts Of Agriculture: Environmental Effects On The Environment

    Agriculture covers thirty-eight percent of Earth’s land surface, but the land has continually been turned into cropland as the world’s population steadily increases (Brennan, Withgott pg. 225). Food is a necessity to human survival, however, agriculture, specifically industrial agriculture has caused multiple environmental impacts. Compared to the other land uses, agriculture causes the most harm to the planet due to the use of inorganic fertilizers, machinery, irrigation, pesticides,…

  • Film: A Synthesis Essay

    Solution growth deposition This technique consists essentially of inserting the substrate into a solution containing hydrolysable metal compounds and pulling it out at a constant speed into an atmosphere containing water vapour. In this atmosphere, hydrolysis and condensation takes place. Finally the films are hardened by a high temperature cycle to form transparent metal oxides. Any hydrolysable compound including halides or nitrates but preferably metallo-organics are suitable…
