Introduction to Linear Motion Graphs

- Introduction to linear motion graphs The change of location of an object along a straight line and can be described using a single spatial dimension is called linear motion. It can be uniform or non-uniform, that is, constant velocity or variable velocity. The motion of particle can be described in terms of X with time T. A very good example for linear motion is a ball throwing down and up straightly. Plotting of graphs under linear motion is called Linear motion graphs. Here we study about two types of graphs as displacement-time graph and velocity-time graph....   [tags: Math]

Linear Feedback Shift Registers

- Abstract: Linear Feedback Shift Registers (LFSRs) are considered powerful methods for generating pseudo-random bits in cryptography algorithm applications. In this paper it is shown that the linear dependencies in the generated random bit sequences can be controlled by adding a chaotic logistic map to the LFSR’s systems. The structure of the LFSR’s output sequence in combination with a chaotic map is analyzed and proved to have at least as much uniformity than the corresponding set for the linear components individually....   [tags: Computers, Cryptography]

We Learned About Linear Motion

- ... Between chapters 6 we learned about momentum. Momentum is inertia in motion, which means that an object with higher momentum is harder to stop than an object with a lower momentum when they are going at the same speed. You can find momentum by taking the mass of an object and multiplying it by the object 's velocity. Only moving objects will have momentum, because without velocity the momentum will equal zero. Momentum is very similar to inertia in the way that if an object is not affected by an outside force, its momentum will stay the same....   [tags: Classical mechanics, Mass, Energy, Force]

- 3. LITERATURE STUDY 3.1. Historical context At the end of the 1950’s and during the 1960’s and 1970’s the idea of corridor development, both planned and unplanned, was actively studied and discussed among spatial planners, designers and scientists (e.g. by C.F.G. Whebell, George R. Collins, C. Doxiadis). Many of these practitioners and scholars also encountered the difficulty of visualising the dynamics of corridors and often referred to (earlier) schemes and designs of linear cities. A study on both the definition and visualisation of corridors in this time-period may contribute to the discussion on corridor development and urban networks....   [tags: corridor development, urban planning]

Ocean Wave Energy: Converting the Ocean's Energy to Electrical Power

- This report breaks down and compares key aspects of three separate ocean wave power generators: permanent-magnet tubular linear generators, hybrid air-wave turbine generators and wave tunnel generators. Each individual generator type is to be described and analyzed on topics such as a general background on design and functionality, applicable locations, costs and efficiency using research and diagrams to support explanations where necessary. Though these forms of power generation are not effective enough to serve as a substitute for fossil fuels entirely, they are capable of reducing human reliance on strictly fossil fuels and are thus a worthy subject to invest research into....   [tags: Ocean Wave Power, Generators]

Hitting a Baseball: Is It the Hardest Thing to Do in All of Sports?

- ... The two main hitting styles are linear and rotational hitting. From 1920 to 1975, rotational hitting was mainly used. It was very popular back then because it allowed small players to hit the ball farther than normal. After that in the 70s and 80s, linear hitting came into play. In this time period many teams switched to Astroturf. This allowed the ball to roll two times faster in the outfield. Many players then focused using their hands to direct the ball into the gaps of the infield and outfield....   [tags: homeruns, mechanics in swinging the bat]

Geometry in Art

- Geometry in Art Most of the art that we see today uses some form of geometry. Sometimes we can visually see the shapes and other times we can’t. If we didn’t have geometry the art of today would be flat and scattered, making it unpleasing to look at. Due to the great works of Brunelleschi and Leonardo da Vinci the concepts of linear perspective and geometry were brought into art and resulted in geometry continuing in our art today. Filippo Brunelleschi was a “trained goldsmith who, in 1420, changed the course of the artistic renaissance in Florence in two large ways” (“BRUNELLESCHI and the Re-Discovery of Linear Perspective”)....   [tags: Filippo Brunelleschi, Art Analysis]

What is a Polynomial Regression?

- What Is Polynomial Regression A polynomial is a mathematical expression that is a sum of more than one monomial (Wikipedia). A monomial can be a constant, or a variable (also called indeterminate). In a monomial, the coefficients should be involved with only the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative integer exponents (Wikipedia). For example, X2+5X-7 is a polynomial, and it is a quadratic one. Polynomial regression is the regression technique that tries to figure out the polynomial that fits the relationship of one dependent variable (Y) and one or more independent variables (X1, X2…)....   [tags: mathematics, variable, equation]

The History of Film

- A major change that has occurred in the development of film is the linearity of narrative. The history of film spans over one hundred years ago, with classical narrative emerging in Hollywood around the nineteen thirties. The classical narrative period had a strong emphasis on linearity and coherence, where characters where goal centred and consistent in personality and action. In the nineteen sixties a change began to emerge in Hollywood, with Breathless (Jean-Luc Godard, 1960) breaking the editing rules, and narrative coherence, with the introduction of jump cuts....   [tags: Informative, Film]

Risk Taking Behaviour in Adolescence

- Adolescence is a venerable and unstable time of adjustment in which a child transcends into adulthood (Casey, 2008). During adolescence there are examinable changes in various areas of life. These changes occur physically as the adolescent goes through puberty, as well as psychological changes where high emotional reactivity emerges, and social development is at its height (Casey, 2008). Adolescents are more likely than adults or children to engage in risky behaviour that can subsequently lead to death or illness by drunk driving, carrying weapons, using illegal drugs, and engaging in unprotected sex, which in turn can lead to STD’s and teenage pregnancies (Eaton, 2006)....   [tags: Adolescent Behavior]

Facial Feature Localizer

- Abstract. This paper describes a facial feature localizer framework that is capable of processing images rapidly while achieving high detection rates. There are three key contributions. The first is the introduction of a new vector space for image representation. Due to this definition, an m×n image consists of m vectors in an n-dimensional space. The second is proving that an image consists of observations set from similar distribution. The third contribution is proposing a one-to-one linear transform called the “Linear Principal Transform”, which allows extracting all features of image rapidly and efficiently....   [tags: Image Representation]

The gear is heated until it expands sufficiently to pass over the rim of the flywheel, and when it is cool the gear tries to return to its original size, this gripping the flywheel with considerable force. All metals do not expand equally when heated through the same range of temperature, e.g. aluminium alloy expands more than cast iron; copper and brass expand more than mild steel....   [tags: Papers]
