    "Reasons and Consequences of the Fall of the Dollar" The value of the US Dollar has since the beginning of March this year fallen drastically. Economists and investors worldwide have tried to explain the cause of this all-time low of the American currency. The consequences of the fall are many and complicated. I will in the following outline the main reasons of the fall, and also try to state a few of the consequences. The first, most obvious reason for the fall, is Bill Clintons $20 billion plan to help Mexico's economy, which hasn't seemed to help at all.

    1. a) Bulk movement is the overall movement of a fluid. The molecules all move in the same direction. Diffusion however is the random movement of molecules which usually results in a fairly even distribution. In other words the movement is not guaranteed to move in one direction but the probability that it will move in the lower gradient is greater. Osmosis is similar to diffusion but is differentiated by the membrane's behavior. The cell membrane does allow water to move from higher to lower concentrations but does not allow solu

    The Problem: I am going to find out how temperature can affect the rate of reaction. Background information: Factors that change the rates of reactions are: · Temperature ? an increase in temperature will make the reaction occur faster. This happens because the particles of that substance move faster when it is heated. Because the particles move faster, they would collide more, making the reaction rate faster. · Concentration ? the increase in concentration, the greater and faster the reaction. This is because if the solution is more concentrate

In the combustion of alcohols, the energy created, when forming bonds will always be more that what is lost, when breaking bonds, this gives us excess energy.
