  • Momaday's Use Of Imagery
    670 words
    N. Scott Momaday's poem, "The Bear", takes place in the wilderness at midday. The day is calm and sunny. The bear is quietly walking through the forest, not hurriedly or destructively. He blends in with his environment. The bear is very old. He has many scars, and a misshapen limb as a result of an old trap injury. It still causes him pain. Then he moves out of sight as buzzards fly overhead. This poem's pattern is logical. It is as if Momaday is standing in the wilderness when he sees a bear so...

  • 0 50 M In Vertical Height Ball
    1,356 words
    Planning The experiment is to determine the horizontal motion of a projectile when launched from a 'ski slope at different speeds. It is thought that the rate at which the ball bearing is released from the slope will affect how far it travels in a horizontal direction. The height up the slope that the ball is released will be proportional to the distance that it travels. Therefore, if the height from which it is released is doubled it will travel twice as far. When the experiment is conducted, i...
  • Polar Bear Mothers

Suddenly, lightnin...

  • Food The Diet Of Polar Bears
    553 words
    Polar Bears Life Span It is believed that polar bears live an average of 15 to 18 years, though some bears have tagged in their early 30's. In some zoo's bears have been known to live up to the mid 30's. There is only one individual bear that has been known to have lived up to the age of 40. Biologists believe that starvation is the leading cause of death for sub adult bears, which is probably the reason that when bears are in captivity (a zoo) they live longer. Population Polar bears live in Ru...

  • 0 1's Mass Measurement Error
    678 words
    This report will investigate the theoretical velocity of a ball bearing gun. The methods and techniques used to derive the results will be shown along with the possible systematic and random errors caused by experimental limitations. Discussion: Since the track is virtually frictionless and air resistance is neglected, the system is isolated; the net resultant force of the external forces equals zero. The total linear momentum of the system before the collision is equal to the total momentum aft...
