  • The Extension of an Elastic Band

    523 Words  | 2 Pages

    The Extension of an Elastic Band Aim & Hypothesis I anticipate that an increase in the load on the elastic band will result in an increase in the extension of it. I think that the extension will be proportional to the load on the elastic band. I think that there will be a certain amount or energy lost and that this will increase proportionally as the load increase. This will be lost due to heat energy. Safety RISK ASSESSMENT - LEVEL ONE This experiment does not carry many hazards

    hope to achieve: I believe that the purpose of doing this is to allow me to demonstrate my understanding of Elastic potential energy. And the projectile concepts of the effect of changing potential into kinetic energy and for me to demonstrate my ability to apply elastic potential energy to a scientific investigation. What am I going to do and what will it prove: I am going to use an elastic band and release it from different tensions I will then measure how far it ‘flies’. Doing this

    applications and created an environment where connectivity and availability is unobtrusive and prevalent. Amazon offers two options for hosting applications and databases. Amazon EC2 with Elastic Block Storage allows one to run a MySQL database server on Elastic Compute Cloud, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider, with Elastic Block Storage (EBS). Meanwhile, another option called Amazon’s Relational Database Services (RDS) is a scalable relational database in the cloud with high availability. COMPARISON:

  • Elastic Clause

    Constitution are the delegated powers, implied powers, and reserved powers. What is the elastic clause? What is its constitutional basis? The elastic clause is also known as the necessary and proper clause because it stretches national government authority. The final clause of Section 8 authorizes Congress to make all laws necessary and proper for carrying out the delegated powers. The constitutional basis of the elastic clause is under the final paragraph of Article I, Section 8. It enables the Congress

    push from the dribbler and rebounded from the floor in a perfectly elastic collision, Mechanical Energy for the system would be conserved (1). However, the collision is not completely elastic and the dribbler pushes the ball with an initial force to ensure that it returns to his hand. To simplify the process I will first consider a situation in which the ball is allowed to fall freely from a height of 1 meter and has a perfectly elastic collision with the floor. After that I will take the true nature

    piece of elastic stretches when a load force is applied and the amount by which the stretch is reduced when the load is removed. Aim (in simpler terms): To determine the relationship between the force on a rubber band and its stretch, both during extension and retraction. Hypothesis: Not required. Method 1)     Hang a piece of elastic on a clamp stand. Ensure the elastic is new. 2)     Clamp a ruler using the clamp stand. Ensuring the markings on the ruler is as close to the elastic as possible

  • Define And Explain Price Elasticity of Demand

    1334 Words  | 3 Pages

    Price elasticity of demand is defined as how demand changes as a result of a change in price. It can be said that if a reduction in price leads to an increase in demand then demand is relatively elastic. Elasticity is usually negative. There is an alternative scenario where demand will increase as price does so too. This happens only in the case of Giffen goods, where elasticity is positive. The formula for price elasticity of demand is: Percentage Change in Quantity Demanded Percentage Change

  • Physics of Pool

    purposes we can just look at the following equation which relates kinetic energy with mass and velocity of an object. K = ½mv2 where K = kinetic energy When you strike another ball with the cue ball it is almost a perfect elastic collision. An elastic collision is one in which total kinetic energy as well as total momentum are conserved within the system. This can be shown by the two basic equations; Conservation of Kinetic Energy: ½m1v1i2 + ½m2v2i2 = ½m1v1f2 + ½m2v2f2

  • Transport In Mammals Essay

    2426 Words  | 5 Pages

    Transport in Mammals A recurring theme in biological systems is the surface area to volume ratio. All cells require nutrients and most require oxygen as well. Wastes also need to be removed. With a small organism this demand can be met by simple diffusion over the body surface but larger or very active organisms need a transport system with a pump to ensure that the supply meets the demand of all cells, even those deep within the body. In mammals, the pump is

    effect, and it is an example that most people have witnessed or experienced themselves. The graph (figure 1) displaying the bandwagon effect on the demand curves of several individuals and the market demand, shows that the market demand curve is very elastic. That is, it is sensitive to price change, and also to the quantity demanded. This means that if many people are consuming a good the demand is affect greater than if less people were consuming the good. To further clarify, take the example of attending

    of the quantity demanded is greater then the percentage change in price, the demand is known to be price elastic. On the other hand, if the percentage change in demand is less than then the percentage change in price; Like that of demand, supply works in a similar way. When the percentage change of quantity supplied is greater than the percentage change in price, supply is know to be elastic. When the percentage change of quantity supplied is less then the percentage change in price, then the supply

They were searching for an artificial replacement for silk when they drew out an elastic string from plastic, creating nylon. There are two popular ways of creating nylon for fiber applications. One, ¡°molecules with an acid (COOH) group on each end are reacted with molecules containing amine (NH©ü) groups on each end.¡± The nylon 6,6

    rotation. Here the focus will be on collisions between the balls. The spin can have a significant effect on the motion of the ball, but due to time constraints and complexity of the science of it it will not be addressed to much detail. "An elastic collision between two objects is one in which the total kinetic energy (as well as total momentum) of the system is the same before and after the collision." (Physics for Scientists and Engineers) In a collision between the cue ball and another

Add weights 0.5N at a time until spring reaches elastic limit. Record extension (Δx). Plot these results on a graph and use this information to gain a sensible number and range of values to use in full experiment.

Their inner layer is smooth and blood flows freely. As you get older, your arteries become thicker, less elastic, and deposits build in them. This leads to a general hardening of the arteries, which is also called atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis or arteriosclerosis is the main cause of coronary artery

Most muscles are joined at both ends to bones. They are joined to bones by non elastic tendons. Bones are held in place by strong fibres called ligaments.
