A Brief Note On The Magnitude Of Nursing

- The Magnitude of Nursing Nursing has evolved tremendously over time. In the past, there was no formal nursing education, unsanitary working conditions, and little, if any, patient confidentiality. Since then, there has been major technology advancement, institution of highly accredited nursing programs, individualization of patient care, regulation of environmental factors in hospital settings, and enforcement of confidentiality laws. Along with the changing career field, nurses have also progressed....   [tags: Nursing, Nurse, Florence Nightingale, Patient]

The Physics Of An Earthquake

- Earthquakes are vibrations produced in the earth's outer layer, or crust, when forces pushing on a mass of rock overcome the friction holding the rock in place and blocks of rock slip against each other. The vibrations can range from barely noticeable to verry destructive. There are six types of shock waves. Two are classified as body waves which means they travel through the earth's interior and the other four are surface waves. The waves are changed by the rock types or formations they hit. Primary or compressional waves (P waves) send particles moveing back and forth in the same direction as the waves are traveling, secondary or transverse shear waves (S waves) send vibrations perpendicu...   [tags: essays research papers]

The Worst Natural Disasters Happened During The Us History

- Introduction On April 18th, 1906, one of the worst natural disasters happened in the US history. This first major disaster which is recorded in human history with photography, has a 7.8 magnitude(USGS,2013).A subduction of the Pacific plates pulled into the San Andreas plates with the north-west direction, causing a 400 km(ECSC) rupture line. Huge energy is radiated out of the epicenter which was just 2 miles of west San Francisco, the intensity of the shaking nearly wiped out most of the buildings and structures with a duration of 110s(ECSC), affected around 370,000 square meters(NZH,1906)....   [tags: Earthquake, 1906 San Francisco earthquake]

The Science of Spin: Spin on Baseball

- The direction of baseballs after they are thrown is caused by spin on the ball. Spin is defined as rotations around the axis of the baseball. Major league pitchers have clocked the spin on their pitches at 1500rpm so when a baseball is spinning through the air the threads on the ball cause a self-made “air pocket” that causes changes in direction. This is known as the Magnus affect. The spin on a baseball is defined as a vector that points on the axis’s rotation. And the magnitude of this spin vector is the number of revolutions per/sec, this is known as an angular velocity vector (Horney, A., Lowry, T., Schwenker, E., & wray, E....   [tags: speed, pitcher, curveball]

Earthquakes: Unique Characteristics of Transform Faults

- Unique Characteristics of Transform Faults There are many characteristics that make earthquakes along transform fault different from subduction zones, rift zones, and mid-ocean ridge transform faults. For instance, transforms faults are when two plates move past each other, shearing, with no creation or destruction of lithosphere. At transform faults, earthquakes are shallow and run as deep as 25 km. the magnitude of the earthquakes are smaller than 8.5 in the scale of Richter. In extensional boundaries, earthquakes are also shallow, but they occur only along the alignment of spreading and are smaller than 8 in magnitude....   [tags: tectonic plates, move, rift zones]

As a result, the crust around the boundaries of the plates bends or deforms, accumulating strong energy during these processes (Briggs, 2006). When the strain becomes too great to bear by the crust in the future, the crust will snap or slip causing earthquakes. As a type of geophysical hazard, earthquakes are inevitable for mankind living on the Earth, which destroy tremendous buildings, and take human life away....   [tags: environment, disaster]
