Determining The Ratio Of Circumference To Diameter Of A Circle

- Determining the Ratio of Circumference to Diameter of a Circle In determining the ratio of the circumference to the diameter I began by measuring the diameter of one of the si objects which contained circles, then using a string, I wrapped the string around the circle and compared the length of the string, which measured the circumference, to a meter stick. With this method I measured all of the six circles. After I had this data, I went back and rechecked the circumference with a tape measure, which allowed me to make a more accurate measure of the objects circumferences by taking away some of the error that mymethod of using a string created....   [tags: essays research papers]

The Effect of the Height of a Crater on Its Diameter

- The Effect of the Height of a Crater on Its Diameter Introduction ============ A crater is formed when a meteor for outer space strikes the lunar surface. The force of the impact obliterates the meteorite and displaces part of the moons surface, pushing the edges surrounding rock. At the same time, more displaced material shoots outward from the crater. I will simulate this in the classroom by using a margarine tub full of sand and using different heights to represent the distance it travelled....   [tags: Papers]

An Investigation into the Relationship Between the Resistance of a Wire and Its Diameter and Length

- An Investigation into the Relationship Between the Resistance of a Wire and Its Diameter and Length Introduction In this investigation I hope to see whether there is a relationship between the thickness of a wire and its length with the resistance in which it produces. First of all, what is resistance. Resistance is calculated as R=V/I Where R is resistance, V = Potential Difference (Voltage) and I = Current (Amount of charge flowing per second) Resistance is the property of a conductor that restricts the flow of electricity through it, this is measure in Ω (Ohms) This Resistance can be because of many things such as the nature of the material, its tempera...   [tags: Papers]

Circumference Formula

- Prove the Circumference Formula Introduction: Archimedes is credited to be the creator of the circumference formula, but more importantly to find the first theoretical calculation of Pi. Pi is an irrational number and the digits are continuous and never come to an end. Archimedes knew he had only found an approximation of pi, he found that pi is between 3 1/7 and 3 10/71. “Pi is a name given to the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter. That means, for any circle, you can divide the circumference (the distance around the circle) by the diameter and always get exactly the same number....   [tags: Archimedes, Pi, diameter, circle, mathematics]

Investigating the Resistance of Wires

- Investigating the Resistance of Wires Aim: To investigate how the diameter of a constantan wire will affect its resistance and hence the current flowing through it. Prediction: I predict that the thicker the diameter the less resistance there will be. Reason: In a metal, some of the electrons are free to move between the ions, to form a "sea" of electrons around the positive metal ions. Metals that are good conductors have more "free" electrons and therefore these electrons move easily around the positive metal ions....   [tags: Papers]

This land reclamation project increased Dubai’s shoreline by 75km where 94 million cubic meters of sand and 5.5 million cubic meters of stone were used to create the palm shaped island on which luxury villas and hotels were to be later built, C.Gibling (2013, pg 4)....   [tags: technology, construction]

The Circulatory System and Fluid Dynamics

- ... Shear stress depends upon the blood flow, the geometry of the vessel and the fluid viscosity and expressed in terms of dynes/cm2. The shear stresses imposed by the blood fluid flow in the vasculature play an extremely important role in determining the structure and physiology of the endothelial cells lining the vasculature. The blood flow inside the linear vessels is laminar in nature under normal conditions. At steady state i.e. at low and inconsistent shear stress, the endothelial cells continue to maintain a cuboidal shape....   [tags: arterioles, arteries, laminar fluids, turbulence]

The Solar System

- Our solar system was born when, in a spiral arm of the Milky Way galaxy, a giant rotating cloud of dust and gasses began to collapse. Gravity compressed the dust and gasses and the cloud got increasingly hotter and began to spin faster. During the following one hundred million years, the gasses compressed until the center was so hot that nuclear fusion occurred giving off tremendous energy, combining charged atoms of hydrogen to form helium. This process gave birth to a star, our Sun (Our Solar System, n.d.)....   [tags: Astronomy]

Application of CFD Simulation for Evaluating the Separation Efficiency of Deoiling Hydrocyclones

- Introduction Having an efficient and reliable system for oil-water separation is of crucial importance especially for offshore oil and gas industry. Due to the platform movement, space, weight and operating limitations in offshore, the usage of common methods (gravity based vessels) for oil/water separation are ineffective. On the other hand producing oil is often accompanied by large amount of water that is discharged into the sea on offshore platforms. The amount of oil in water is confined from environmental standards....   [tags: Environment, Oil-water Separation]

When a patient is exercising, blood vessels will become dilated and blood pressure will increase (Connexions). Patients who have a constantly high blood pressure will have a decrease in cardiac muscle tone and thin blood vessel walls. Capillaries tend to be extremely small, which causes them to have a decreased radius and an increase in airway resistance.
