# The History of the Rubik's Cube

- The Rubik's cube has haunted peoples nightmares for decades. When it was first made, it was supposed to have “billions” of combinations though it actually has over 43 quintillion combinations (43,252,003,274,489,856,000 to be exact). Originally created to help students understand geometric concepts and 3D space the first wooden model was made in 1974 by Ernö Rubik and a couple of friends. After some time playing with it, Ernö realized he didn't know how to get it back to its original form.

## Finding the Hidden Faces of a Cube

- Finding the Hidden Faces of a Cube In order to find the number of hidden faces when eight cubes are placed on a table, in a row, I counted the total amount of faces (6%8), which added up to 48. I then counted the amount of visible faces (26) and subtracted it off the total amount of faces (48-26). This added up to 22 hidden sides. I then had to investigate the number of hidden faces for other rows of cubes. I started by drawing out the outcomes for the first nine rows of cubes (below): [IMAGE] I decided to show this information in a table (below): [IMAGE] I decided to show this information on a graph (below): [IMAGE] From this information I have no...   [tags: Papers]

We waited as our grandmother prepared the famously dull and flavourless Turkey which, though bulbous and inviting on the surface, held none of our knowing tongues in suspense....   [tags: fear, armageddon, presents, family]

## Rates of Reaction

- Rates of Reaction Reactions Reactions can only occur when two different particles come together. The theory for the way the reaction occurs is called The Collision Theory. The collision theory states that that the different particles need to collide with each other in order to react. However, they do not react if they collide without sufficient energy, and therefore the more energy a particle has, the more likely it is to react. The activation energy is the minimum amount of energy required by a particle in order to react....   [tags: Papers]
