There is increasing consensus among critics--against Tolkien's views--that the dragon is "a different sort of creature from the Grendel tribe" (Gang 6) and that among the innumerable dragon stories "there is probably not one which we can declare to be really identical with t...   [tags: Epic Beowulf essays]

Combinations in Pascal's Triangle

- Combinations in Pascal’s Triangle Pascal’s Triangle is a relatively simple picture to create, but the patterns that can be found within it are seemingly endless. Pascal’s Triangle is formed by adding the closest two numbers from the previous row to form the next number in the row directly below, starting with the number 1 at the very tip. This 1 is said to be in the zeroth row. After this you can imagine that the entire triangle is surrounded by 0s. This allows us to say that the next row (row one) is formed by adding 0+1 to equal 1 and 1+0 to equal 1 making the next row 1 1....   [tags: Mathematics Math]

Creating Biofuels from Waste

- Biofuels from Waste Purpose Biofuels mark a great step into today’s efforts to slow down global warming. However, when food sources, such as corn and soy are used as derivatives for ethanol, the impact is far worse than using fossil fuels. Biofuels require more energy to do artificial refinery, cultivating, and collecting; whereas, fossil fuels already meet all the prerequisites through millions of years in the earth, and thus use less energy. On the social justice stance, the poor suffer through the sky-rocketed food prices because farmers are using their food to supply the ethanol demand....   [tags: Energy Fuel Environment]

Fossil Gaps

- Fossil Gaps “The study of fossils provides strong evidence for evolution.” (Campbell, 260) Or does it. The fact is that the fossil record is a silent testimony against Darwin’s erroneous theories of the fossil record documenting his idea of macroevolution. The book, Biology: Concepts and Connections (hereafter referred to as Biology), clearly agrees with the evolutionary outlook of “fossils [being] a rich source of evidence for evolution.” (Campbell, 260) However, this book, along with most evolutionists, avoids the substantial questions the fossil record actually represents....   [tags: Geology Evolution Essays Biology]

A substance having neither a fixed shape nor a fixed volume is a gas; gases assume both the shape and the volume of their container.

Naturalisitic Observation

- Naturalistic observation takes place as scientists perform observations in a naturally occurring situation, without becoming actively involved. In performing naturalistic observations, a scientist does not make an effort to manipulate or change what is occurring. The purpose of this kind of experimentation is to create a detailed record of the events that happen and of perceptible associations between events, without having any control on the results. Apparently the objective in performing naturalistic observation is to arrange the data collection so that what is going on is comprehensible to the observer, but is not so important or conspicuous that they become the focus of attention or mat...   [tags: Naturalisitic Observation]

When a wave passes, each part of the medium moves away from its normal position and then returns. This is called an oscillation. Oscillations within the medium are slight movements either side of the normal position. The wave motion is the disturbance that passes through the medium. A wave pulse causes the medium to have one oscillation. A continuous travelling wave causes the medium to keep oscillating....   [tags: essays research papers]
