Displacement, Velocity, and Acceleration Sensors

- Displacement, velocity and acceleration sensors. There are three primary types of motion characteristics detected by vibration transducers normally referred to as accelerometers. These are • displacement, • velocity, and • acceleration. The choice between these three different types of motion transducers depends on the frequencies that have to be measured and the levels of the signal involved. (Wilcoxon Research / ND) Displacement sensors are normally used for low frequency (1 to 100 Hz) measurements and are useful for measuring very low amplitude displacements....   [tags: frequency, signal, piezoelectric]

- Based on On Dreams, written by Sigmund Freud, and Spellbound, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, provide the most psychological significant aspect of dreams through the theory of dreams made by Freud. I partially agree with Freud’s theory on dreams and the dreaming process. Dreams have the ability to form a bridge from reality to transfer over to the unconscious mindset. Throughout his article, On Dreams, he gives explanations behind his theory. The human psyche has a vital role in psychology, including the way humans interpret dreams and their sequence....   [tags: Sigmund Freud, Psychoanalysis, Carl Jung]

Julian, who is of a different generation, attempts to inform the mother of the inherent flaws in her racism, but this point isn’t hammered into the mother until the Black mother knocks her down as the mother tries to give the Black child a coin. It is at this point that Julian’s mother’s awful attitude towards others different than her crashes around her, and, as most of O’Connor’s stories end, tragically ends with the mother suffering a stroke due to this newfound displacement of culture shock....   [tags: literature, skin color, god]

Factors that Affect the Period of a Pendulum

- Factors that Affect the Period of a Pendulum Purpose: To determine the factor(s) that affect the period of a pendulum. Hypothesis: The factors that I think will affect the period of the pendulum are the displacement and the suspended mass because if the mass of the bob is a lot than it will take more force for the pendulum to swing and if there's a high displacement it will give the pendulum more energy to complete the cycle.

Investigating The Density Of A Set Of Plastic Beads

- The objective of this lab experiment was to determine the density of a set of plastic beads by using two different methods and decide which method was better. Density is a physical property that is defined as the ratio of an object’s mass to an object’s volume. Also, density can be described as the measurement of how compact a substance is in a given space. To find an object’s density, it is necessary to measure the object’s mass, the amount of matter present, and volume, the space it takes up. Also when studying density, it is key to note how objects with varying densities behave....   [tags: Density, Buoyancy, Archimedes, Volume]

The Effect of Lateral Loading on Civil Structures

- Most civil structures will be subjected to some form of lateral loading during the span of their lifetime. Loads produced by earthquakes, wind, or blast explosions, mainly induce lateral displacement on structures. The effect of gravity loads acting through the structure’s lateral displacement has been called the P-∆ effect. This effect can initiate a pernicious circle against structural systems because the influence of gravity loads increase as the lateral displacement grows while at the same time, the lateral displacement is magnified as a consequence of gravity loads acting on them....   [tags: Physics]

In order to find the horizontal displacement of the car, one must calculate time to avoid having two unknowns in the displacement equation. To calculate time one must use the calculated vertical velocity. Since we cannot have two unknowns in the time equation one must find a time where velocity is known which is half way; V = 0m/s. Since this way one will only calculate the time for half the journey, one must multiply the answer by 2 giving one the full duration (refer to paper for calculations)....   [tags: 2 fast 2 furious movie]

The limbs of our bodies exhibit angular motion around our joints, so most of the movements involved in playing basketball display some form of angular motion. The two important biomechanical aspects of angular motion are Angular Kinematics and Angular Kinetics.
