• Crime Rates Calculation Population 000 Constant
    516 words
    For example, the United States Census combines their population data with crime data compiled from the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting system (UCR) to produce crime rates. These rates are calculated with a constant of 100, 000 and are broken down by type of crime. As described by Sacco and Kennedy in The Criminal Event, the constant in the above equation is designed so the crime rate can be expressed per c (the constant) units of exposure. The selection of the constant is largely arbitrary, but ra...
  • Cgi Scripts Executed In Real

    CGI Scripts Must have Internet service provider that will allow you to run CGI scripts. You should really have telnet access to your account, too CGI, which stands for common gateway interface, is not a programming language but a protocol a set of rules for how a Web server talks to a program. A plain HTML document that the Web daemon retrieves is static, which means it exists in a constant state: a text file that doesn't change. A CGI program, on the other hand, is executed in real-time, so tha...
  • Theoretical Value Spring Error Calculation
    793 words
    OBJECT: The objective of this lab is to obtain the spring constant by using the simple harmonic motion of the spring-mass system. Once the spring constant is obtained it is to be compared to the spring constant obtained by Hookes Law. PROCEDURE: 1) Using a meter stick measure the distance from the attached point of the spring to the end of the spring, at this time there is to be no mass on the spring. Once this measurement is obtained the elongations can be calculated by subtracting the new meas...

    To be, or not to be that is the question: Whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune Or to take arms against a sea of troubles And by opposing them. This sentence is possibly one of the most famous ever written by Shakespeare or by anyone at all. People everywhere can recite it, but the majority doesnt know what it means. Hamlet during his soliloquy is lamenting the unjust death of his father, but more so the betrayal to him and is father of his uncle an...
  • Do We Really Need A Cosmological Constant
    1,818 words
    In 1916, Albert Einstein made up his General Theory of Relativity without thinking of a cosmological constant. The view of that time was that the Universe had to be static. Yet, when he tried to model such an universe, he realized he cannot do it unless either he considers a negative pressure of matter (which is a totally unreasonable hypothesis) or he introduces a term (which he called cosmological constant), acting like a repulsive gravitational force. Some years later however, the Russian phy...
  • Ionic Bond Solutions Of Lead Nitrate
    557 words
    When ionic solids dissolve, they divide to give their positive and negative ions that make up the solids. These ions become hydrates and have the same relative proportions when in solution and when solid. The more the solid dissolves, the more the ion's concentration increases. This increase and build-up allows for the reverse reaction to occur. In this phase of the reaction the ions crystal lise out in order for the reaction to have a greater chance of occurring. Eventually the rate of dissolvi...
  • The Bondwoman's Narrative Slave Hannah Writes
    261 words
    The Bondwoman's Narrative The Bondwoman's Narrative is a manuscript written by Hannah Crafts, a slave from North Carolina. The book is the story of her life, written as she experiences it. She invites the reader into the minds and hearts of a slave as she tells of her personal experiences. She writes of the trials and tribulations of being enslaved, and how degrading it feels in such a situation. Hannah worked as a house slave, which may have been far less worst than working in the fields, but h...
  • Resistance Of Wire Length Electrons Doubles
    301 words
    A imI am going to be studying the resistance of wire. The purpose of this investigation is to see how the length of wire affect the dependent variable, resistance. Prediction I predict that, as the length of the wire doubles, the resistance will also double, This means that the length will affect the resistance. Hypothesis Resistance is caused by electrons bumping into ions. If the length of the wire is doubled, the electrons bump into twice as many ions so there will be twice as much resistanc...

  • A Rock Concert Crowd Allowed One

    A Rock Concert Have you ever experienced an overload of every sense at once? Well, rock concerts can almost take you there. I went to see AC/DC in the spring of 1991, and it was truly a festival of sensory overloads. My body felt as if they stimulated it in every area to its complete capacity. The level of sound was so astronomical. The decibel level was on the threshold of pain. The music roared through the streets for miles, outside the coliseum. Every time the bass drum was struck, I could f...

    Permanent Flux It is said that every great journey begins with one step. This is not true. A more accurate saying would be, "every great journey begins with the idea of the journey", thus leading to the idea of the step, and so on. The steps will surly follow an idea, but nevertheless the ideas will always precede any action. Once one gets an idea in one's head, one must either forget it, or act on it. Such as the case with the first Philosophers, known now as the Pre-Socratics. The Pre-Socrati...
  • Period Of Oscillation Spring Force Position
    589 words
    Harmonic Motion: The Spring Objective: The purpose of this experiment to study the simple harmonic motion of an object placed on the spring. Harmonic motion involves the principle of oscillation where the spring force is proportional to the spring? s elongation. This means that the further the spring was stretched, there was increase in the force in order to keep the spring extended. The experiment is divided into two parts. In the first part, I measured static equilibrium and in the second part...
  • Science Inquiry Forces On The Block

    Inquiry 2: Force with varied mass Introduction: In this inquiry the relationship between force and mass was studied. This inquiry presents a question: when mass is increased is the force required to move it at a constant velocity increased, and how large will the increase be? It is obvious that more massive objects takes more force to move but the increase will be either linear or exponential. To hypothesize this point drawing from empirical data is necessary. When pulling an object on the groun...
  • Poems Bright Star And Choose Something Like A St
    549 words
    Poems Contrasted "Bright Star" and "Choose Something Like a Star" are two poems very different in form and theme. The theme in "Bright Star" is that when in love nothing is more beautiful than your lover. While the theme of "Choose Something Like a Star" is that humans need to be individuals. However these two poems do have a few things such as subject and apostrophe, in common. In the poem "Bright Star" by John Keats the author uses apostrophe when speaking to the star. He addresses the star a...
