Shock Waves Air Pressure
834 wordsResearch: Airplanes are an efficient way of traveling to far places. Airplanes are amazing if you know what and how the air keeps the plane airborne. There are three components of flight: aerodynamics, the Bernoulli principal and supersonic flight. Some other things about flight are the four forces, lift, drag, weight, and thrust. One of the basic things you need to know about airplanes is that the places where the plane can balance on one point called the center of gravity. The tail on the plan...

Gauss Died Math
276 wordsGauss was born on 1777 and died on 1855, he was an extraordinary man with extraordinary talents. At the age of 3, he corrected his father on a math error while watching his father work. At the age of 7, he surprised his teacher by summing up the integers from 1 to 100 instantly by spotting that the sum was 50 pairs of numbers each pair summing up to one hundred and one. In college, Gauss independently discovered the binomial theorem, as known as Bodes law. He also discovered the law of quadratic...

Prisoners Dilemma Market Failure
1,736 wordsMARKET FAILURE AND UNCERTAINTY In this essay I would like to argue that market failure is the reason for hierarchy. I will argue that market failure leads to uncertainty and that uncertainty leads to incomplete contracts. To explore the notion of incomplete contracts I have used the ideas of Milgromand Roberts. They describe how incomplete contracts can lead to a relational contract oran implicit contract. I will argue that relational contracts can lead to the formation of organisation. Once an ...

Pythagorean Theorem Geometric Shapes
491 wordsGeometry was actually first used in ancient Egypt and Babylon at around 2000 BC in both cases. In order for the Egyptians to build such massive structures as the pyramids they had to have made plans for them prior to the actually building, in these plans geometry had to be used. On ancient Babylonian tablets there is evidence that they understood the Pythagorean theorem. The so-called father of Geometry is Euclid a Greek mathematician. He wrote The Elements, books of postulates and theorems, whi...

1,887 wordsPythagoras of Samos is often described as the first pure mathematician. He is an extremely important figure in the development of mathematics yet we know relatively little about his mathematical achievements. Unlike many later Greek mathematicians, where at least we have some of the books which they wrote, we have nothing of Pythagoras writings. The society which he led, half religious and half scientific, followed a code of secrecy which certainly means that today Pythagoras is a mysterious fig...

A related rates problem is a problem which involves at least two changing quantities and asks you to figure out the rate at which one is changing given sufficient information on all of the others. There are several key steps in setting up and solving related rates problems. Some important and helpful things to do are ...
