Internal Combustion Engine

- Have you ever opened the hood of your car and wondered what was going on in there. Well I have, and that's why I have been so interested in cars. Internal combustion engines have been getting us around since the 1800's. A car engine can look like a big confusing jumble of metal, tubes and wires to the uninitiated, but if you want to get down in the dirt they really work in a simple way. You might want to know to, because it is something that you use everyday of your life. I have been interested in cars and motors since I was a little kid, but recently within the past 5 years I have really gotten into the engine them selves and seeing how they work....   [tags: Engineering]

Light Intensity

- By looking at Table A in the microscopic light results, it can be seen that the results would obey the inverse square law. This was because as the distance increases the light intensity of the microscopic light decreases. The graphs that demonstrate the inverse square law can be seen in figure 1 and 3. Thus, it is evident that the relationship between light intensity varies inversely with the square of the distance holds truth in real-life situations and or under laboratory conditions. The reason for this was because figure 1 was tested in the dark room (under laboratory) whilst figure 3 was tested with other sources of lights (real-life situation) such as sunlight....   [tags: Research Analysis ]

The Gas Laws

- ... In terms of each other, the pressure-volume law states that “the volume of a given amount of gas held at constant temperature varies inversely with the applied pressure when temperature and mass are constant”. Another way to identify it, is saying that their products are constant, PV=C. Then you can eventually derive the theory of “pressure goes up, when volume goes down” and vice versa. The next gas law, is Charles’s Law, which states “that the volume of a given amount of gas held at constant pressure is directly proportional to the Kelvin temperature....   [tags: properties, compressibility]

Random And Systematic Errors Are Both Factors That Affect The Reliability And Accuracy Of The Results

- Errors Random and systematic errors are both factors that can affect the reliability and accuracy of the results respectively. As all the graphs contained outliers, and hence, scatter, this indicates that random errors were present. Such errors may result from the inconsistent masses of the Alka Seltzer tablets. As these tablets were cut manually with a knife, it is unlikely that the mass of each half of an Alka Seltzer tablet would be the same. Thus, when using the tablets to react with HCl, the true number of tablets reacting would have not been the same as the number denoted for the trial, and with each repeated trial for the same number of tablets reacting, the reacting mass and ratio wo...   [tags: Chemical reaction, Reaction rate, Measurement]

Chemistry and Technology in Biodiesel

- ... The diesel engine was originally intended to run on bio-fuel such as vegetable oil, rather than the petroleum-based diesel fuels mainly used today. Therefore society did not know what it was like to run petroleum-based diesel fuel before biodiesel was invented. Biodiesel gives a cleaner diesel fuel to run in vehicles. It does not give off the bad pollutions like a petroleum-based diesel fuel when burned. Therefore it is affecting society in a positive way, by not polluting the air. The resources to make biodiesel are organic, it is a renewable resource so, practically the resources will never run out to make the fuel so resources do not affect the fuel from being made....   [tags: cleaner fuels for internal combustion engines]

Molecular Aspects of Biofilm

- Almost all bacteria are known to have certain stage of life where they live in form of biofilms. A biofilm is nothing but cluster of cells embedded within a self-produced polymeric matrix and adherent to a living or inert surface (Costerton et al, 1995). Development of biofilm begins with the attachment of planktonic bacteria to a surface, initially through weak and reversible Van der Waals forces and then anchors itself irreversibly by cell adhesion structures such as pili. The primary colonizers facilitate the arrival of other cells by producing polymeric adhesion matrix that also holds the biofilm together (Costerton et al, 1995)....   [tags: Biology, Cluster of Cells]
