    Tuberculosis Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease caused by a germ (bacterium) called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This germ primarily affects the lungs and may infect anyone at any age. In the United States, the number of TB cases steadily decreased until 1986 when an increase was noted; TB has continued to rise since. Today, ten million individuals are infected in the U.S., as evidenced by positive skin tests, with approximately 26,000 new cases of active disease each year. The increase i...
  • Current And Resistance Of A Wire
    468 words
    Resistance Coursework Planning: Aim Investigate how the length of a wire affects the current and resistance of a wire. Variables The variables that could change resistance are: o Length of the wire Cross section area (thickness) o Changing material so Changing temperatures The variable I am going to change in my experiment is the length of the wire. Prediction and Hypothesis I think as you increase the length of the Constantan wire, you also increase the amount of resistance. The current is the ...
  • Change In Skin Resistance
    551 words
    The Galvanic Skin Response The simple psycho-galvanometer was one of the earliest tools of psychological research. A psycho-galvanometer measures the resistance of the skin to the passage of a very small electric current. It has been known for decades that the magnitude of this electrical resistance is affected, not only by the subject's general mood, but also by immediate emotional reactions. Although these facts have been known for over a hundred years and the first paper to be presented on th...

Yet, even when it seemed obvious that death was near inevitable, why did they not put up a fight? This argument is still puzzling to many holocaust historians, yet the arguments of Raul Hilberg and Yehuda Bauer offer insight to possible reasons why they did not fight and that resistance was more widespread than most people think. First of all we will look at Raul Hilberg's "Two Thousan...

  • 40 0 Cm The Avg Resistance
    292 words
    Analysis: With scientific knowledge the graph has turned out like it should have turned out, in that the resistance will increase as the length of a wire increases. This is because of the idea, discussed in the prediction that if you double length, you double the number of atoms in it. As the charges move through the conductor they collide with other atoms. They transfer some of their kinetic energy. This transfer on collision is what causes resistance. So doubling length doubles the amount of a...
