    An Analysis of Donne’s A Valediction: of Weeping William Empson begins his critical essay on John Donne's "A Valediction: of Weeping" with the statement below.  Empson here plays the provocateur for the critic who wishes to disagree with the notion that Donne's intentions were perhaps less than the sincere valediction of a weeping man.    Indeed, "A Valediction" concerns a parting; Donne is going to sea and is leaving his nameless, loved other in England, and the "Valediction" is his emotive

    used to measure the distance between celestial bodies. From my research on parallax, I found how to measure it, and how to use the parallax formula to measure distances. Parallax is defined as “any alteration in the relative apparent positions of objects produced by a shift in the position of the observer” (Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia 1). Parallax is commonly used to measure distances between celestial bodies, such as planets and stars. Parallax is measured using angles that are much smaller

    The star we call the Sun has a number of small objects circling around it. Many other stars in our Galaxy have objects orbiting them too and astronomers have recently discovered a few of these other systems already. The largest members of the Sun's family are called planets, and one of these we call home. That planet, Earth, has many unique characteristics that enable life to exist on it. What are the other planets like? We have learned more about our solar system in the past few decades than probably

    Includes Source Code Computers in Physics Abstract This project is an experiment that sets up the earth's original velocities in the x and y direction and changing them with the velocities/momentum of a meteor. It attempts to simply model a meteorite or asteroid impact upon the earth and the subsequent change to the earth's orbit in terms of distance and speed in relation to the sun. Given the meteor's mass, velocity, angle, and the earth's coordinate point at the point of impact, the

    once dropped two objects off the Leaning Tower of Pisa to show that the heavier of the two objects dropped faster. If a feather and hammer were the two objects he used then obviously the hammer would hit the ground first. This is due to air resistance, which is the force air exerts on a moving object. This force acts in the opposite direction to that of the object's motion. In the case of a falling object, air resistance pushes up as gravity pulls down, which causes the object to slow down. When

    Purpose: to become familiar with the image analysis program and to develop an understanding to the size and age of planetary nebulae Procedure The first part of the experiment involved using a picture of a church and back round to understand different pixels, ADU, zoom, and how to get the (x,y) coordinates. We then took this brief understanding of pictures and applied it to the stars. We loaded a picture of nebulae m42. After this we needed to calculate the average number of stars or solar masses

    Introduction The idea of interstellar space travel has been discussed for many years between many scientists and engineers since 1950s (Adelman, 180). It has not only been discussed but also demonstrated in science fiction literature. By getting the knowledge of interstellar travel, people wonder when will we be able to travel between stars and if it is even possible to reach another star other than the sun. However, others wonder “what is the point of spending so much money on something that it
