Phonological Similarity of Word Lengths - Word length effect is the finding that the longer the words are that people need to remember, the fewer they can remember (Baddeley, Thompaon & Buchanan, 1975). In our research findings, there are three hypotheses; including letters that sound similar will be remembered worse than words sound dissimilar. Long words are remembered worse than short words. With long words presumably being more subject to error than are short words. Longer words are assumed to take more time to articulate, hence allowing a greater degree of forgetting, either from trace decay or from interference (Baddeley, 2001)....   [tags: long words] 577 words

Investigating How Different Lengths of Wire Affect the Resistance in a Circuit - Investigating How Different Lengths of Wire Affect the Resistance in a Circuit Hypothesis: I predict that; the longer the wire, the more resistance there will be. So if the length of the wire were to double, so would the resistance. The reason for my prediction is: The flow of electrons is called a current, the electrons are constantly hitting atoms, which causes resistance. If the same amount of current is passed through a longer piece of wire, there will be more collisions, hence more resistance....   [tags: Papers] 944 words

Investigating the Relationship Between the Lengths, Perimeter and Area of a Right Angle Triangle - Investigating the Relationship Between the Lengths, Perimeter and Area of a Right Angle Triangle Coursework Aim To investigate the relationships between the lengths, perimeter and area of a right angle triangle. Pythagoras Theorem is a² + b² = c². 'a' being the shortest side, 'b' being the middle side and 'c' being the longest side of a right angled triangle. So the (smallest number)² + (middle number)² = (largest number)² The number 3, 4 and 5 satisfy this condition 3² + 4² = 5² because 3² = 3 x 3 = 9 4² = 4 x 4 = 16 5² = 5 x 5 = 25 and so 3² + 4² = 9 + 16 = 25 = 5² The numbers 5,12, 13 and 7,24,25 also work for this theorem 5² + 12² = 13² because 5² = 5 x 5 = 25 12² = 12 x 12 = 144 13²= 13 x 13 = 169 and so 5² + 12² = 25 + 144 = 169 = 13² 7² + 24² = 25² because 7² = 7 x 7 = 49 24² = 24 x 24 = 576 25² = 25 x 25 = 625 and so 7² + 24² = 49 + 576 = 625 = 25² I will now work out the perimeter and area Perimeter = a + b + c Area = ½ x a x b 3, 4, 5 Perimeter = 12 Area = 6 5, 12, 13 Perimeter = 30 Area = 30 7, 24, 25 Perimeter = 56 Area = 84 I will now put these three terms in a table Term Number 'n' Length of shortest side 'a' Difference between 'a' Length of middle side 'b' Length of longest side 'c' Difference between 'b' and 'c' Perimeter Area 1 3 2 4 5 1 12 6 2 5 2 12 13 1 30 30 3 7 2 24 25 1 56 84 As you can see from the table above the difference between 'a' for each term is 2 and the difference between 'b' and 'c' is 1 and if you times 'n' by 'a' and plus 'n' you get 'b' so 'c' is that plus 1....   [tags: Papers] 2080 words

The relationship between the length and the period of motion of a pendulum - ... Newton’s second law, F=Ma=(d^2 (Lθ))/(dt^2 ) , shows that the arc which the pendulum swings through is actually a segment of a circle – with the radius being the length of the pendulum. The combination of these formulae demonstrates that the mass of a pendulum is independent to its period of motion (Encyclopedia Britannica, 2011). I concluded from this that a specific weight for my pendulum is not necessary, although it must remain constant. As seen in the above equation, this restoring force is not proportional to the angle θ but to sin θ, which means the resulting motion of the pendulum is not simple harmonic....   [tags: History, Galileo] 1085 words

Accurately Predicting the Focal Length For Four Lens Systems - Abstract: We attempted to accurately predict the focal length for four lens systems: a 100 mm lens, a 200 mm lens, a compound lens system, and an unknown lens. This was done by using an optics track with a mounted light and displayed image, and measurement of the location of image in full focus after movement of a white display plate set up after the lens system. The best value of f100 was determined to be from unweighted computations, with a value of f100=(0.096±0.0004) m, with a percent error of 3.6%, a fractional error of 0.4%, and a discrepancy of 9.1σ....   [tags: Research Analysis] 1812 words

The Length of a Wire and Its Effect on Resistance - The Length of a Wire and Its Effect on Resistance Introduction: In an electrical circuit, the current (flow rate of charge) depends on the battery voltage that causes the charge to flow through the circuit and the components in the circuit. A circuit consists of a bulb, a battery and a resistor. The bulb is like a resistor, it slows down the electrons and the battery pushes the electrons and gives them energy. A component is a resistor, it slows down the flow of electrons. The bulb acts as a resistor because inside the bulb is a thin filament wire, and so not many electrons can flow through this then slows them down....   [tags: Papers] 1265 words
