Comparing Scientific Theories - ... He later tested his hypothesis with mercury, the length of the mercury column was only 2 ½ feet because the specific gravity of mercury is about 14 times that of water. He checked this test implication by means of a mercury barometer. A further test implication of that hypothesis was noted by Pascal, who reasoned that if the mercury in Torricelli’s barometer is counterbalanced by pressure of the air above the open mercury well, then its length should decrease with increasing altitude. This implication was checked by Pascal’s brother in-law, Perier, who measured the length of the mercury column in the Torricelli barometer at the foot of the Puy-de- Dome, a mountain some 4,800 feet high....   [tags: Science] 1458 words

Their ears might have rung without Gershwin, but Robert Frost would keep their minds filled with poetry, and their hearts calm with stories about New England life. His most famous work of poetry, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” is set near a forest in New England (Lovett-Graff 2), and as Deirdre Fagan said, “It is not simply a description of a natural scene but is about a person experiencing the scene (1).” The poem was written in a relatively new format called blank verse, which used rhyme and meter, but no pattern (Bailey 1)....   [tags: U.S. History]

The Validity of Existing Pool Boiling Curve Models for Spheres in Nitrogen - ... When quenching is used as a method for boiling, the difference in temperature between the fluid and the heated surfaces is initially large; therefore, film boiling occurs first. During film boiling, a layer of vapor encloses the heated surfaces where heat is transferred by convection and radiation. These methods of transfer through vapor are far less effective at transferring heat than the conduction and convection through the liquid [2]. At the Leidenfrost point, the film begins to break off to form jets or bubbles after the amount of heat transfer reaches a local minimum [2]....   [tags: Scientific Research ]
