Enc 1101 Angela Fralick Essay 3 "Naked Ed" The sun was shining brightly off the crystal water as my best friend and I paddled our small canoe down the Santa Fe River. The sites were familiar to me (I am somewhat considered a "river rat") Birds were flying overhead, turtles resting on fallen logs, the occasional lazy gator laying on the bank in the shade of an old cypress tree, and very frequently mullet jumping so high I thought they would land right in our canoe. Of all the exquisite wildlife I witnessed that gorgeous sunny day, one site that I seen I will always remember as truly beautiful: the life of Naked Ed at Lily Springs. As my friend and I turned a bend in the river, we saw a sign which simply read "Lily Springs: Enter at Own Risk." We contemplated ignoring the small canal that would take us to the exceptional and stunning spring, but being the explorers we are, we decided to give the spring a go. As we approached the spring, the first object I noticed was the straw hut on stilts. Next, I noticed a man sitting on a small dock built off of the hut. As we paddled ashore, I instantly felt comfortable because of the shouts of welcome I heard from Naked Ed. I learned many facts that day about Lily Springs and whom I officially came to know as Naked Ed. Lily Springs is located approximately 3/4 mile downstream from Poe Springs and 1/2 mile upstream of Rum Island

Carry out a two source superposition of laser light experiment using a double slit, and determine the wavelength.
WAVES Task1 The principle of superposition states that when two waves of the same type cross, the displacement at any point is equal to the vector sum of the displacements of each of the waves at that point. Wave crest + wave crest = supercrest Wave trough + wave trough = supertrough Wave crest + wave trough = cancellation Task 2 Aim To carry out a two source superposition of laser light experiment using a double slit, and determine the wavelength. Method * The laser is set up on a level bench and plugged in. * A screen is set up at least 2 metres away. * Graph paper is attached to the screen. * A double slit(s) is positioned in front of the laser. * The laser is turned on and due to safety precautions should not be directly looked at as it can cause damage to the eye. * The positioning of the laser is adjusted till the laser is visible on the screen. * Markings are made on the graph paper showing where bright fringes are. * The distance(d) between the double slit and the screen is measured using metre rulers. * The distance across a number of fringes is measured with a normal ruler to determine the fringe spacing(x). Results Nine bright fringes were produced on the screen. To calculate the fringe separation, the length across a number of bright fringes is divided by the number of dark fringes separating them. 4.5 = 0.5625cm 8 = 0.005625m
The 'perfect storm' that formed off New York and the hurricane-like storm during the Sydney to Hobart yacht race in 1998 had many similarities and differences in the way that they formed and how the people involved with them reacted.
Part B The 'perfect storm' that formed off New York and the hurricane-like storm during the Sydney to Hobart yacht race in 1998 had many similarities and differences in the way that they formed and how the people involved with them reacted. The two extreme storms were similar in a couple of different ways. Firstly, both 'the perfect storm' and the Australian storm caused chaos, claiming the lives of six crew each. Due to freak events both storms were considered rare and they formed from many strong separate weather conditions. In the case of the 'perfect storm', hurricane Grace, a strong high pressure system with a leading cold front, another separate low pressure system to the north, the Gulf stream and an upper level disturbance all combined to form a storm that only occurs once every hundred years. The storm that formed in the Bass Strait formed due to a low pressure system moving into another small scale low pressure system and the East Australian current. Also the shallow water in the bass straight caused steep and savage waves. The intensity of both storms were similar also, in the case of the Australian storm reports from satellite images and competitors revealing average winds of 120 kph, with the strongest being 171 kph. The average wave height was recorded as 12 metres, but the biggest was 20m, however rogue waves were considerably bigger being recorded to be over
In this investigation I am trying to find out how a spring behaves and if I double the ammount of springs I double the average extension pull.
Aim In this investigation I am trying to find out how a spring behaves and if I double the ammount of springs I double the average extension pull. Fair Test For a fair test I need to keep certain variable the same. These being: * The ammount of force used in Newton's. I will use three different forces 3N, 6N and 9N this is because these values are evenly spread this should give me reliable data and for every ammount of springs I will keep these values the same and only take readings from 3N, 6N, and 9N * The position of the ruler secured to the table. The ruler must be positioned at the beginning of the first spring this must stay the same or my results will not be reliable. * I will always make sure that the Newton metre reads 0 at the beginning of every test. The factor that I will be changing for the experiment is the number of springs used. Prediction I predict that as the force in Newton increases the extension (mm) will increase. This is because there is greater force acting on the spring. The data I collected from my preliminary work can help me to predict that if the number of springs doubles the average extension per spring will also double. I found out that the average extension pull on the spring at 1N = 36mm this means the average extension pull on 2 springs should be 72mm and so on. This is because springs in series will always be direct proportion. This
Jamie Moir 11F 21 March 2002 How much will a Elastic band stretch after adding weights. Prediction I predict that the more weight added to the elastic band the more it will extend. The reason it extends is because it is elasticised. If I add too much weight it will reach its elastic limit. After that it will not extend and will become plastic. When I take the weights off I think the elastic band will relax to a size slightly bigger then it's original state. We did a similar experiment with springs instead of an elastic band. The more weight added the longer the spring extended. I have also taken into account Hooke's law. Hooke's law simply states that the extension of a spring (Or other stretch object) is directly proportional to the force acting on it. This law is only true if the elastic limit of the object has not yet been reached. Plan First I will attach an elastic band to a clamp-stand and will suspend the elastic band over the end of a table. I will then add a 100g (1 Newton) weight to the elastic band. I will then measure the elastic band and record the size. I will then repeat this with a 200g (2 Newtons) weight. I will repeat the experiment for every 100g up to 1000g.(10 Newtons or 1 kilogram) I will then do the same but instead of adding weights I will take weights off. Fair Test To make sure that this is a fair test I will use the same elastic band
Physics Investigation 1 Introduction In this investigation I am going to look at the correlation between the amount and order of springs used and the time it takes for one complete bounce up and down of the spring. Planning I started planning this investigation by looking at the safety factors that would be necessary to complete a safe investigation. As this is already a safe investigation there were only two safety points: ) Putting to much weight on the spring so that it hits the desk and springs off. 2) Not keeping the springs on the clamps bar securely so it springs off. To keep either of these from happening I kept the same weight on the springs at all times which was 400g. Also to keep the second point from occurring I held the springs in place each time I attempted the experiment. To make this a fair test I kept the weight the same each time I did the experiment also I did each experiment 3 times so that I could work out an average, which would be more accurate than a normal result. I also counted 10 complete bounces of the spring and divided it by 10 so that the time of one bounce would be more precise. I made sure that I started the stop clock as accurately as I could so that my three individual tests would be very similar and this was shown in my results. The variable I am using is the amount of springs used and in what order, this
I am going to be looking at three plays, they are 'Billy Liar', 'Spring and Port Wine' and, 'Ernie's Incredible Illucinations'. 'Billy Liar' is about a boy with a very vivid imagination.
Plays Comparison I am going to be looking at three plays, they are 'Billy Liar', 'Spring and Port Wine' and, 'Ernie's Incredible Illucinations'. 'Billy Liar' is about a boy with a very vivid imagination. As he tries to live in his fantasy world, he lets go of reality, leading to all sorts of problems. 'Spring and Port Wine' is about a Bolton family The first difference is the style of the plays. 'Billy Liar' and 'Spring and Port Wine' are both very naturalistic. However, 'Ernie's Incredible Illucinations' is surrealistic. The writer intends this. If we look at the plays and try to compare them, we find that the only difference is 'Ernie's Incredible Illucinations', which takes an idea of the characters imagination, one step further. Ernie imagines things that then become real, and as an audience, we see the effect of his imagination on everyone around him. 'Billy Liar' and 'Spring and Port Wine' show us the inside of the characters imagination. In that way 'Ernie's Incredible Illucinations' show us a reality, the other two plays show us the 'made up' world, so that although the characters think fantasy thoughts, these thoughts do not affect life around them. The cultures of the time were evolving, children were trying to voice their views and make a statement about themselves. All the plays have a rogue character, trying to break free from the Victorian vision of a child
How does force affect the extension of a spring? Aim My aim in this experiment is to find out how force affects the extension of a spring. Background Information Springs are used as force-measuring instruments in everyday life, for example in spring balances and Newton meters. They are also used in watches, toys, cycles, cars and trampolines. It is important to know how much force springs can bear so that these things can be safe for people to use. Springs are used so much in everyday life because they are elastic. This means that when a force is exerted onto them they will change shape (stretch) and when the force is removed the spring will regain its original shape. There is a relationship between the force exerted on the spring and the extension of the spring, this is known as Hooke's law, which states that: The extension of a spring is proportional to the force applied This can also be expressed as: F = ke Force (N) = constant x extension (mm) The constant is the stiffness of the spring. A spring with a low value for k is weak and a spring with a high value for k is strong. Weak springs are very sensitive and can be used for measuring small forces. Strong springs can withstand larger forces. Preliminary To help me come up with an initial theory I will carry out a preliminary experiment. For my preliminary I will investigate how mass affects the extension of a
Fletchers Meadow Secondary School Resonance in a Closed Air Column Application of Resonance User 4/20/2010 Prediction I think the speed of sound, when using the higher frequency tuning fork; will increase if a low frequency tuning fork is used. When a higher frequency is used, the wavelength is shorter according to the speed equation, where f ? v so when f is high frequency the wavelength is shorter. When wavelength is shorter the speed is also lower compared to a high frequency object. The speed of sound is higher in higher temperature. Using the speed of sound equation the higher the temperature the faster the sound.

The sound emitted by each tuning fork is: 2. The speed of the waves using the universal wave equation, for each tuning fork is: 3. The wave speed of the first tuning fork was faster than the wave speed of the second tuning fork. I am surprised because the frequency of the first tuning
