Air Resistance, Tyres And Friction

- Dragsters use a combination of large wide tyres or the rear and small narrow tyres on the front this combination is used for the following reasons: The front wheels: The front wheels are very narrow. This is so a minimum of air resistance or drag affects the dragster with lower drag better acceleration an in turn a better top speed can be achieved all leading to a better pass (race time). Now lets try to understand the concept of air resistance and drag. A basic example is placing your hand out the window with your palm facing forwards as you are driving your car along at about sixty kilometres per hour....   [tags: essays research papers]

Investigating Air Resistance

- Investigating Air Resistance We are trying to investigate the effect of air resistance to the speed of a trolley moving down a ramp in relation to the area of a sail attached to the trolley. The prediction I have made is that the larger the sail area, the longer the trolley will take to descend, i.e. it will be slower. The variable I will be changing is the height of the sail, and so, the area of the sail. Some variables cannot be changed, but may affect the result of the experiment, and so should be noted....   [tags: Papers]

Antibiotic Resistance Of E. Coli

- Antibiotics play a vital role in decreasing the death rate among humans with contagious diseases as they are chemicals produced by bacteria with the ability to control the growth of another bacteria. Yet, natural selection plays a major role in stimulating drug-resistant traits among bacteria. One of these bacteria is Escherichia coli, a normally harmless bacterium found in the digestive tracts of humans and animals.

The Treatment Of Antibiotic Resistance

- Antibiotic resistance has quickly become a prominent issue in health care, as more and more bacterial strains are growing resistant to antibiotics currently on the market. Some bacterial strains have even become completely impervious to all known antibiotic treatments. This is primarily due to global overuse of antibiotics, which has led to an antibiotic crisis (Ling et al., 2015). Numerous medications that doctors prescribe for patients were found through soil cultivation. Approximately 99% of uncultured bacteria grow in external environments, such as in soil, and could potentially hold an abundance of new antibiotics that could be useful in treating various diseases (Ling et al., 2015)....   [tags: Antibiotic resistance, Bacteria]

- I. Introduction A. Attention getter: Fumes. Gases. Toxins. We cannot survive without air; even though, we must inhale any air that is available in the atmosphere. According to the Environmental Protection Agency “a new gas powered lawn mower produces…air pollution in one hour of operation as 11 new cars each being driven for one hour” (Springfels). If the society keeps producing technology, then the environment will be destroyed. B. Relevance: Air pollution is something that everyone should be concern, especially if we’re advancing a lot in technology, especially in vehicles and the importance of our air or the environment....   [tags: Air pollution]

Jewish Resistance to the Holocaust

- Examining any issue pertaining to the Holocaust is accompanied with complexity and the possibility of controversy. This is especially true in dealing with the topic of Jewish resistance to the Holocaust. Historians are often divided on this complex issue, debating issues such as how “resistance” is defined and, in accordance with that definition, how much resistance occurred. According to Michael Marrus, “the very term Jewish resistance suggests a point of view.” Many factors, both internal such as differences in opinion on when or what resistance was appropriate, as well as external, such as the lack of arms with which to revolt, contributed to making resistance, particularly armed resista...   [tags: nazi, jewish resistance]

The Discovery Of Antibiotics Resistance

- The discovery of antibiotics has led to the emergence of antibiotic resistance in microbes. Antibiotic resistance is widespread and an ongoing global concern, as estimated by the world health organisation that on average in the EU 6.25% of 400 000 individuals carrying the resistant strain of bacteria die each year (World Health Organisation, 2015b). Therefore, to reduce the spread of this resistance numerous implementations and strategies are necessary. Antimicrobial resistance is the broad term used to describe when microbes such as bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses adapt in order to become resistant to antimicrobial agents used to cure the infections the microbes cause, therefore maki...   [tags: Bacteria, Antibiotic resistance, Penicillin]

For decades, the overuse and misuse of antibiotics has produced a formidable selective pressure towards antibiotic resistant bacteria (Levy, 1992). Bacteria have evolved and conceived different mechanisms of resistances like the production of proteins to increase export or decrease uptake of antibiotics (Sutcliffe et al., 1996), modification of the target molecule structure (Aarestrup et al., 2000) or inactivation of the antibiotic (Normark and Normark, 2002)....   [tags: Bacteria, Antibiotic resistance, Lactobacillus]

The Pollution Of Air Pollution

- The detriment of air pollution is that it has far reaching consequences and most often is misplaced long distances by the wind. Polluted air shows up in places where you wouldn’t expect or desire it, like in the most remote parts of beloved national parks or barren wilderness. This can be attributed to higher power plant pipes that transport pollutants above a local community contribute to carrying pollutants sometimes thousands of miles away by wind. This can be particularly true in downwind states, where emissions from industrial boilers and power plants contribute to smog, haze, and air pollution hundreds of miles away (EPA, 2014) ....   [tags: Air pollution, Smog]
