Aluminum Foil Magnetic Force
1,253 wordsSummary of Investigation An investigation was carried out to find out the relationship between the force created in a wire (or solenoid) when current flowed through it and the force from gravity. This was investigated by connecting a solenoid up to a variable power pack and then placing a light ring of either copper or aluminum around the solenoid. When the current flows through the solenoid, a magnetic force created from the solenoid should make the ring 'jump' up or levitate. When carrying out...

Amount Of Information Electrical Activity
1,431 words... s theory fit with the hard facts? Dreaming (D-state or D-activity) is associated with a special movement of the eyes, under the closed eyelids, called Rapid Eye Movement (REM). It is also associated with changes in the pattern of electrical activity of the brain (EEG). A dreaming person has the pattern of someone who is wide awake and alert. This seems to sit well with a theory of dreams as active therapists, engaged in the arduous task of incorporating new (often contradictory and incompati...

Quantum Mechanics Truth Value
1,656 wordster>Sam Vaknin's Psychology, Philosophy, Economics and Foreign Affairs Web Sites In 1936 an American (Alonzo Church) and a Briton (Alan M. Turing) published independently (as is often the coincidence in science) the basics of a new branch in Mathematics (and logic): computability or recursive functions (later to be developed into Automata Theory). The authors confined themselves to dealing with computations which involved effective or mechanical methods for finding...

The Secret Life Of Great White Sharks
1,139 wordsGreat White Sharks are greatly misinterpreted as vicious man-eaters because of the media, movies, and peoples imaginations, but they are actually large fish who mistake people for seals and other marine life. What is a great white shark? The great white, among the least understood of Earths creatures, is an apex predator, meaning that it is at the top of the food chain with no natural predators. This means great whites have their pick of food when it comes to selecting their prey (Klimley 15). C...

The Time Machine Compared To Nineteen Eighty Four
1,512 wordsThe Time Machine by H. G. Wells and Nineteen Eighty Four are two excellent science-fiction novels which explore and give to different views of the future. Both of the Novels look at the future in different ways because of different social attitudes and structures but both still have the same view of human nature and what it may lead to. Written and based in the nineteenth century, The Time Machine explores the Fourth Dimension of space. The protagonist, who is referred to as The Time Traveller b...

Electrical Impulses Mental Phenomena
663 wordsHuman beings have a conception of at least two different kinds of things that exist in the world, mental and physical. Any of us could generate a long list of obvious physical things and clear cases of psychological things. And we assume that both of these types of things, mental phenomena and physical phenomena, are part of our world. But in order to get a more unified, overall picture of the world, we need to consider what the connection is between these two categories. How are the mental and ...

Gel Electrophoresis Chain Reaction
892 wordsHuntington Disease, (HD), is a hereditary degenerative brain disease. Usually begining in mid-life, cells in the caudate nucleus of the brain begin to die, causing a relentless deterioration of intellectual ability, emotional control, motor skills, balance and speech. Chorea, or involuntary movements, is nearly always a symptom as well. HD is caused by a single dominant gene. Every child of an affected parent has a 50 % chance of inheriting the gene that causes HD. The HD gene is found on chromo...

Hydrogen And Oxygen Combustion Engines
1,015 wordsHard to believe that the simplest atom in the universe is used in the making of the most destructive weapon known to man isnt it? Well so is the fact that it will soon (we hope) become the replacement for petroleum-based fuels, and just about every other form of fuel too. One electron orbiting one proton is all that hydrogen is, and it is mankind's future. It is easy to manufacture, (although the government says otherwise, ) safe and easy to store, and has only one by-product water. The way that...

Computer Chips Silicon Web
339 wordsSilicon is a semiconductor which means it's a "substance whose electrical conductivity is intermediate between that of a metal and an insulator; it increases with temperature and in the presence of impurities. " The conductivity of silicon can be controlled by adding small amounts of impurities, called departs. This ability to control the electrical properties of silicon have the development of transistors and integrated circuits used in the electronic industry. "Silicon is prepared as a brown a...

Ben Jonson As A Lover
967 wordsBen Jonson as a Lover Poetry of Ben Jonson describes him as a renaissance man, in the full sense of this word. This is because he was able to integrate into his verses his love of sensual pleasures, his idealism, and his philosophical aspirations. Just as any educated person in England, at the time, Jonson was being heavily influenced by the notions ancient Greek and Roman culture. This explains epicurean attitudes, which are often found in Jonson's poems. At the same time, Jonson was a man of h...
