  • Semiconductors: The Silicon Chip

    1457 Words  | 3 Pages

    Semiconductors: The Silicon Chip Silicon is the raw material most often used in integrated circuit (IC) fabrication. It is the second most abundant substance on the earth. It is extracted from rocks and common beach sand and put through an exhaustive purification process. In this form, silicon is the purist industrial substance that man produces, with impurities comprising less than one part in a billion. That is the equivalent of one tennis ball in a string of golf balls stretching from the earth

    1430 Words  | 3 Pages

    Human-implanted Chips While the idea of human tracking has its share of benefits, there certainly are numerous pitfalls that also exist. While the ability to identify someone with an ID tag may have practical uses, the security and privacy issues could seem potentially alarming to some. Not only that, a closer look may show that the technology doesn’t necessarily offer very many advantages when considering the costs of nation-wide adoption of the technology. This paper will try to investigate

    Bingo Chips Strategy The Bingo brand of chips was launched by ITC on 14th March 2007 with an aim to capture at least 25 percent market share of the Rs 2000 crore branded snack market within five yrs. This was an extremely ambitious target according to observers as the market was dominated by the Frito Lay group (owned by Pepsi Co) with a slew of brands like Lays, Kurkure and Uncle Chipps holding 50 per cent of the market share. The other was the Haldiram group with 25 percent of the market

    Pass the Potato Chips Has mankind discovered some fantastic substitute for fat to enable people to eat as many snacks as possible without gaining weight? Recently, Proctor & Gamble developed Olestra (sucrose polyester), a zero calorie fat-based substitute, at a cost of $200 million. This product has been approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) with warning labels. What is olestra? The olestra molecule differs from a fat molecule in that it has six to eight fatty acids on

  • Marble Chips Experiment

    Marble Chips Experiment Pilot Aim: To investigate how the concentration of hydrochloric acid affect the speed of reaction with marble chips. Prediction: I predict that the more hydrochloric acid there is the faster the chemical reaction. I also predict that the more dilute the acid is (the more water there is with the acid) the slower the chemical reaction. Hypothesis: I predicted what I did because the more concentrated the hydrochloric acid is the more energy there will be and

I shall also be investigating the effect the concentration of the solution has on the osmosis of a potato core. Possible Input Variables: - concentration of glucose - surface area of potato core - temperature (this however will only effect the rate of osmosis) - variety if potato, vegetable - whether the potato is cooked - what the solute of the solution is, possible change

  • osmosis in potato chips

    971 Words  | 2 Pages

    GCSE Biology: Osmosis in a Potato Aim To investigate the effect of placing a piece of potato in a given strength of sugar solution. Prediction I predict that, as the solution becomes more concentrated the more the cell will shrink, as the water, of higher concentration inside the potato cells, flows down a concentration gradient into the solution, which has a lower concentration of water molecules. If we say that the percentage change when the potato is placed in the 1M solution is x%. I predict

  • Potato chips

    634 Words  | 2 Pages

    1. Introduction At a restaurant called Moon's Lake House in Saratoga Spring, New York, potato chip was invented by a chef named George Crum in 1853. Potato chips are thin slices of potato, fried quickly in oil and then salted. It quickly became popular around the world. Manufacturers depend on their stored supplies of potatoes, which are kept at a constant temperature, until several weeks before they are to be used. 2. GENERAL PROCESSING INFORMATION 2.1 Description of Manufacturing Process: 2.1

  • Personal Narrative: Lays Chip Flavor

    584 Words  | 2 Pages

    important discovery. We made a wonderful chip flavor. It all started when Jaycee and I had nothing to do. We wanted a good and easy way to make some cash, so we looked on the internet. It said that there is a Lays Chip Flavor Contest coming up. It was called, Do Us A Flavor. It stated that if you have a good idea to make a delicious chip flavor and you win, you could win one million dollars! We thought, that is a lot of money. We thought and thought of an idea for a chip flavor, and we finally came up with

  • Osmosis of a Turnip and a Potato Chip

    982 Words  | 2 Pages

    Osmosis of a Turnip and a Potato Chip The problem: I have been asked to investigate why a turnip will taste sweeter than a potato chip. What I am actually been asked to investigate is the effect of varying concentration of a certain sugar solution on the amount of osmotic activity between the solution and a potato chip of a given size. Background Knowledge: Osmosis is a special type of diffusion involving the movement of water molecules through a partially permeable membrane and

  • Ethical Assessment of Implantable Brain Chips

    3172 Words  | 7 Pages

    Ethical Assessment of Implantable Brain Chips My purpose is to initiate a discussion of the ethics of implanting computer chips in the brain and to raise some initial ethical and social questions. Computer scientists predict that within the next twenty years neural interfaces will be designed that will not only increase the dynamic range of senses, but will also enhance memory and enable "cyberthink" — invisible communication with others. This technology will facilitate consistent and constant

    surface of the chips for the molecules of acid to react with when the chips are broken into smaller pieces. The same principle can be applied to the marble chips. The smaller the chips the more surface area so I predict that the smaller marble chips will react faster than the larger chips. Method Here is the set up: In this experiment I will be keeping the variables I mentioned earlier the same except one to keep the experiment fair. I will be changing the size of the marble chips to see which

  • System on Chip Overview

    1071 Words  | 3 Pages

    System on Chip Overview As the microelectronic and VLSI technologies matured, the number of components on a single silicon chip also increased, reaching a point in which a complete electronic system fits in a single integrated circuit. At that moment, the System on Chip was born. This trend in electronics (and computers) can be described in evolution periods. From 1960 to 1975, it was the mainframe computer age, where integrated circuits where designed looking only on performance. In the next

  • Media and Television - Analysis of the V-Chip

    2196 Words  | 5 Pages

    The V-Chip and TV Parental Guidelines During the last decade, media ratings have been used as a means of addressing concerns about "objectionable" or potentially harmful media content. Politicians, entertainment industry leaders, and parents alike have turned to media ratings as a "middle ground" to such concerns somewhere between direct government censorship and not addressing the issue at all. While movie ratings have been in place for several decades, there was a trend in adoption of
