The Development of Ground and Air Transport - A. The development of ground transport In old days, before the wheel invention (pre-3000 B.C) people normally were carried the sick and wounded on the shoulder between two men or backs of friends or animals(MacDonald & Miller, 1989). Forced transports were used for those with mental disorders in ancient time, however, one of the earliest uses of the wheel for patient transportation was constructed (circa 900 A.D.) by Anglo-Saxon, so they called it the Anglo-Saxon wagon hammock(Bell, 2009). This hammock was placed between two poles raised on a four wheeled platform(MacDonald & Miller, 1989)....   [tags: Transportation ]

Vesicle Traffic and Cellular Transport - The process of cellular transport is a concept we have all learned during our high school biology classes. In a eukaryotic cell, there are two types of cellular transport. Passive transport does not utilize ATP, or adenosine triphosphate, to move molecules or waste. Instead, it uses the process of diffusion, in which substances move between the plasma membrane of the cell from high concentration of the substance to low concentration. The substances that are usually moved are small, uncharged molecules, such as carbon dioxide....   [tags: exocytosis, endocytosis, Rothman, Sheckman]

Mars Transport Concept Vehicle - The primary purpose of this concept vehicle is to be able to transport a crew of four to six from Low Earth Orbit (LEO) to Low Martian Orbit (LMO). Once in orbit, the crew takes the Landing Module (LM) down to a Martian Outpost (which is pre-existing for the purpose of this concept). In addition, the LM should be able to link back up with the Mars Crew Transport Vehicle (MCTV) that stays in Martian orbit. Also, the MCTV should be able to return to LEO automatically to resupply and pick up another load of crew members....   [tags: martian orbit, landing module]

Transport Geography - It is important to understand the transport geography between two different types of cities in order to examine patterns of transportation mobility. Transport geography is a type of urban geography that seeks to explain the movement from one area to another in order to access different provisions. The two types of cities that are considered for transport analysis are a global city and an ‘Airport City’. A global city in this context is ‘underpinned by measuring and inter-relating criteria such as the scale of the urbanized area, labour productivity and research clustering in connection with the level of connectivity of air traffic’ Boshken (as cited in Knippenberger 2010)....   [tags: urban mobility analysis]

Transport Layer Security and Secure Shell - The fundamental reason why security protocols are implemented in networks is simple – to protect data as it traverses the network. The mechanism associated with protecting data on its travels is called cryptography. This particular mechanism employs algorithms which encrypt data so that hackers are prevented from easily intercepting the data. Cryptography operates in tandem with a group of protocols which help to control the passing of data between network devices. Therefore, security protocols are a vital component in networks in order to increase data security and without them security would be compromised (Linn, 2014)....   [tags: security protocols ]

Supersonic Dream: Problems of Supersonic Transport and the Concord - What is the different between supersonic flight and subsonic flight. The term “supersonic” and “subsonic” are used to describe the travel speed in Mach unit in which “supersonic” is used for the speed between Mach 1 and 5 while “subsonic” is for the speed below Mach 1(Smith, 2009, para.2)When a plane is flying at supersonic speed, it is flying faster than sound. The major difference in a supersonic aircraft is the design principal. The most important thing to consider when building a supersonic aircraft is airflow: “Managing that airflow is especially troublesome as a plane approaches the speed of sound… The faster the plane travels, the more difficult it is to push the craft through the air...   [tags: speed, environmental impact, cost]

Exchange and Transport in Protozoa - Exchange and Transport in Protozoa The exchange of gases between the environment and cells occurs via the process of diffusion. Diffusion depends on: · The amount of surface area available for diffusion. The larger the surface area the greater the rate of diffusion. · The concentration gradient. An organism which respires very quickly will have a much lower concentration of oxygen in the cells and a higher than normal concentration of Carbon Dioxide. So the greater the concentration gradient across the respiratory surface the quicker the rate of diffusion....   [tags: Biology] 429 words

The transport of water is simple the cell being selectively permeable will allow water through it until an equilibrium is reached and at that time water will flow both in and out of the cell maintaining the equilibrium. For example a red blood cell is placed into a isotonic solution which means both the solution and the cell have the same concentration the net movement of water is zero, water however does move freely in and out of the cell to maintain the balance....   [tags: essays research papers] 537 words

Like NO₂, CO is also correlated with PM₁₀. CO has an effect on the oxygen carrying capability of blood as it binds to haemoglobin molecules where oxygen would normally bind. This decrease in oxygen carrying capability leads to cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks (Ministry of Transport, 2002). CO was also found to cause stress, dizziness and headaches (Public Health Advisory Committee, 2002)....   [tags: environmental issues, vehicle emissions]

We All Need Some Cellular Respiration - Every living thing needs cellular respiration to survive. Cellular respiration is the process that releases energy by breaking down glucose and other food molecules in the presence of oxygen. This process happens through three distinct operations which are glycolysis, the Krebs cycle, and the electron transport chain. Throughout these cycles, our bodies turn oxygen and glucose into carbon dioxide, water, and energy. Although this system seems simple enough, cellular respiration can not take place in just one step because all of the energy from glucose would be released at once, most of it being lost in the form of light and heat....   [tags: Cellular Respiration, ] 521 words
