    2827 words - 12 pages

    The relationship between humans and the state of the ecosystem is not only dependent upon how many people there are, but also upon what they do. When there were few people, the dominant factors controlling ecosystem state were the natural ones that have operated for millions of years. The human population has now grown so large that there are concerns that they have become a significant element in ecosystem dynamics. One of these concerns is the relationship between human activities and climate, particularly the recent observations and the predictions of global warming, beginning

    1.0 Problem Description Our world is submitted to continuous changes and technological advantages. Through the years, humans have worked toward an easier and more relax life style. In this process we have seen how the science has succeeded putting almost anything in movement using the principles of mechanics. The principal reason in most cases is to satisfies their needs and without knowing, achieve big steps in the technology. In the beginning we have no power induced by a motor, only the user can put some manual power in the tools to achieve certain type of work, but today this has chang

    CAT Scans

    1781 words - 8 pages

    Introduction Figure 1. Computerised Axial Tomography Scans, or CAT scans, are now a frequently used tool in the medical industry and are based on the simple principle of an X-ray. CAT scans take the idea of conventional X-ray imagining to a new level. Instead of just finding an image of the outline of bones and organs as an X-ray would do, CAT scans show us a 3-dimensional representation. This enables doctors to examine the body in narrow ‘slices’ at a time to pin-point specific areas. A CAT scan machine looks like a giant doughnut tipped on its side as shown in Figure 1.

    Mt Kosciusko Field Trip Report Geological History of the Australian Alps The geological history of the Australian Alps starts when the majority of east Australia was submerged underwater at around 800 million years ago. At this time there were large sediment layers that covered the sea floor. By around 450 million years ago, the earth began to move underneath the continental plate causing uplifting and folding (Australian Alps National Parks, 2010, Geology and geomorphology of the alpine landscape para.6). Magma rose up through the layers at temperatures reaching up to 1000°C. The magma th

    Experiment 5: Transition Metal Catalysis 1. Introduction This experiment aims to utilize transition metal palladium catalyst for diarylacetylenes synthesis. In general, the procedures consist of two steps: the synthesis of catalyst precursor for active species Pd(PPh3)4 and the preparation of alkyne. Bases on the previous studies, there are two well-known reactions to synthesize diarylacetylenes. The first method discovered by Castro involves the use of copper acetylides. These reagents are prepared by treatment of an aqueous ammonia solution of cuprous iodide with an e

Another person approaches the machine and buys a bottle of water. What attracts the person to buy soft drink products instead of consuming a glass of milk, or water from the water fountain? The answer lies within in the marketing department of drink companies.
