  • Seed Removal Seeds Removed

    Abstract Why do seeds disperse to form new plants? If the seeds simply fell and grew beneath the parent plants they would be too overcrowded and would be starved of nutrients. So it is important that the seeds are dispersed over a wide area where they stand a better chance of finding the right condition to grow. In this experiment I predicted that the red color of jello would have the highest mean number of seeds removed from the aluminum tin pan. Also, between site 1 and site 2 of jello set out...

    381 words
    Pro Capital Punishment One of the main arguments for capital punishment is that it deters murder. Economist Stephen K. Lays on did a 1985 study showing that, on average, every execution of a murderer deters 18 murders. This study also showed that by raising the number of death sentences by 1 percent, 105 murders would be prevented. These cases support the thought that capital punishment deters murder. On January 17, 1977, Gary Gilmore was executed by a firing squad. Before his execution (1976) ...

    Hydrolysis of OxoanionsNonmetals in positive oxidation states do not exist in aqueous solution as cations but rather as hydroxides or oxides. These species often act as ox o acids which ionize to form in solution. The general form of an is MOxy-. Since these are quite different in their properties, Z 2/r ratios for nonmetal cations do not give accurate predictions of their chemical behavior. A different approach is needed to determine what these elements will do when they are dissolved in water...

  • Central Office Number Phone System
    460 words
    There are two ways to dial a telephone number. Both ways accomplish the same goal: to send a signal to the central office that we want to be connected to that number. The first way is rotary or pulse dialing (rotary dialing was patented in 1923 by Frenchman Antoine Barna y). This method of dialing sends a signal to open and close a switch at the end of a local loop at a fixed rate of speed. These pulses are translated into numbers by "counting" the number of 1/10-second breaks. Dual Tone Multi-...
