The Four Causes of Speculative "Bubbles"

- Why do some technologies lead to speculation while others do not. Why were there speculative bubbles in stocks of early radio producers and broadcasters, “aeroplane” manufacturers and airlines, internet storefronts, electronics producers, electric automobile manufacturers, and transcontinental railroads, but not in the stocks of producers of lasers, northeastern railroads, antibiotics, nylon, rayon, cellophane, or televisions.

The Great Recession

- Every few years, countries experience an economic decline which is commonly referred to as a recession. In recent years the U.S. has been faced with overcoming the most devastating global economic hardships since the Great Depression. This period “a period of declining GDP, accompanied by lower real income and higher unemployment” has been referred to as the Great Recession (McConnell, 2012 p.G-30). This paper will cover the issues which led to the recession, discuss the strategies taken by the Government and Federal Reserve to alleviate the crisis, and look at the future outlook of the U.S....   [tags: housing bubble burst of the XXIst century]

Investigating the Effect of Light Intensity on Photosynthesis in a Pondweed

- Investigating the Effect of Light Intensity on Photosynthesis in a Pondweed Aim: To investigate how the rate of photosynthesis changes at different light intensities, with a pondweed. Prediction: I predict that the oxygen bubbles will decrease when the lamp is further away from the measuring cylinder, because light intensity is a factor of photosynthesis. The plant may stop photosynthesising when the pondweed is at the furthest distance from the lamp (8cm). Without light, the plant will stop the photosynthesising process, because, light is a limited factor....   [tags: Papers]

Experiment to Show the Rate of Photosynthesis

- Experiment to Show the Rate of Photosynthesis Aim: Experiment to show the rate of photosynthesis when pondweed is under different life intensities. Prediction: I predict that the closer the light is to the pondweed the (or the higher the light intensity) the more oxygen will be produced until a certain point where the temperature or carbon dioxide levels will be the limiting factor. The further away the light, the slower the oxygen bubbles will be produced so the less light the less photosynthesis will occur which is needed for the plant to make food....   [tags: Papers]

I am trying to find out if the distance of the pond-weed from a lamp will change the rate of photosynthesis. I will measure the rate of photosynthesis by counting the number of bubbles that are released by the stem of the pond-weed when the lamp is shone on it from different distances.

The Limiting Effect of Light Intensity on Photosynthesis

- The Limiting Effect of Light Intensity on Photosynthesis Aim: To investigate the limiting effect of light intensity on photosynthesis. Prediction: I predict that as the light source (desk lamp) is moved closer to the pondweed (Elodea), the rate of photosynthesis will increase therefore more oxygen will be produced creating more bubbles. I believe this will happen because when the light source is nearer to the plant more of the plants surface area is coming in to contact with the light from the desk lamp therefore more photosynthesis will occur which will mean more oxygen will be produced which will create more bubbles....   [tags: Papers]

Physics of Beer

- Carbonated beverages contain dissolved carbon-dioxide gas. The way to get gas to dissolve in liquid is to pressurize the mixture, meaning that the pressure inside a beer can is greater than the pressure outside the can. This is why you see little bubbles spray out when you open a beer can. Breaking the seal depressurizes the mixture, causing the gas to come out of solution, starting with the gas closest to the top (that's where the pressure decrease starts). Because gas is lighter than liquid, as soon as it comes out of solution, it rises to escape the can....   [tags: physics alcohol beverage]
