1. ## Business Analysis of the Star City Complex.

This is also another income, which is received, even though it isn't as obvious. Unlike many of the other cinemas, there is a wide range of people who visit the complex. Youths and adults and teenagers visit the complex. The reason for this is because, there is a lot to do for all of the different age ranges. People can do as they please, and use the services available. There is more then a cinema, so, people also visit the complex for other reasons, besides to watch films.

2. ## Nanotechnology. In this essay, I will explain why I believe that nanotechnology can be the future of our world

Consequently, we don?t have much of a grasp regarding nanotechnology. To five an approximation of how little the nanoscale is, if a marbles diameter were to be one nanometer in size, then the whole earth would be one meter in diameter. When an average human being would have the height of about 200 million nanometers. Since nanotechnology is the manipulation of many small atoms; it has multiple advantages on such a miniature scale. Nanotechnology has already been used to treat people with diseases such as cancer.

3. ## GCSE Astronomy Revision Notes

You can use the shadows to calculate the angle between the sticks. When you take the distance between the sticks into account, you can calculate the curvature of the Earth, because they are not parallel. Eratosthenes of Cyrene used this experiment to calculate the circumference of the Earth. 1. How long is the rotation period of the Earth? * 23 hours and 56 minutes 1. How long does it take the Earth to rotate by one degree? * 4 minutes 1.

4. ## Physics - Meteorite Craters Research

(From source 2) Some meteoroids survive passage through Earth's atmosphere and hit the ground. These are called meteorites. (From source 3) How Impact Craters are Formed When an impactor strikes a target, it has a great deal of kinetic energy (proportional to the object's mass and the square of its velocity). 1. Compression Stage: During this stage, the impactor punches a (relatively) small hole in the target, and a shock wave begins to pass through the target. This is when the impactor's energy is converted into heat and kinetic energy in the target, as the pressure generated by the impact is so great that even solid material can act somewhat fluid, and flow away from the impact site.

5. ## Lifecycle of a Sun

As the Sun becomes older, it grows slightly larger, brighter and hotter. At about 1.1 billion years from now the Sun will be 10% bigger than it is now. As a result, the extra solar energy will dry up Earth's atmosphere and many kinds of life. In about 3.5 billion years, the sun will be 40% bigger and will probably mean that all life on Earth will cease to exist.

6. ## Planning for Lunar Observations Coursework

My observations will be taken at both Norwich, England (Lat 52.6500° N, Long 1.2800° E) and Darmstadt, Germany (Lat 49.8667° N, 8.6500° E). All my observations will be taken in the Northern Hemisphere. Unfortunately I will not be able to go to any major close hills and the countryside on all of my observations, however on some I will be able to get quite far away from houses and any light pollution and obscuring objects. At the time of my observations I will assess the light pollution on the Antoniadi Scale, in which you rate your observations light pollution and seeing on a scale of I-V, as shown below: 1.

7. ## Production of Electricity Through Trash

Recyclable materials: Paper is also included into this group but other non-biodegradable items such as plastic, glass and metals fall into this. 3. Inert waste: These are materials that are not necessarily harmful to all species but they are harmful to humans. For example, construction and demolition waste. 4. Composite waste: This includes items composed of more than one material such as clothing and plastics such as children?s toys. 5. Household hazardous waste: This includes medicine, paint, batteries, pesticide and e-waste. Household hazardous waste cannot be disposed or recycled so many cities offer other options for disposing these items.

8. ## What Is The Life Cycle of a Star?

This means we can never fully observe the life of a star; from its birth to life to death. Our Sun is a perfect example of a star, and there is an incredible amount of stars in the Universe. It is a star among hundreds of billions of stars that is featured in our Milky Way Galaxy and our galaxy is one of billions of galaxies in the universe. In determining the life cycle of a star, astronomers observe many of the billions of stars around us and see them at different stages of life, therefore putting together a star's evolution.

9. ## The Multiverse Theory

There are stars with enough mass to collapse on themselves, forming what have been theorized as black holes. It is thought that within these black holes there is a point called "singularity". It has been thought that beyond singularity are tunnels, or ?shortcuts? that can lead to another or other universes. It is said that at the point of singularity, it was agreed that it was impossible to know physical behaviour.

10. ## The Universe and Nuclear Fusion

The cloud starts to clump together due to gravity. The cloud gathers together over thousands of years and spins slowly. The fast rotational force causes heat energy to form and increase the energy of the whole structure. As the heat increase and the rotational force increase that cloud becomes more and more compacted. This keeps increasing the speed and heat energy and gravity. Eventually the cloud of dust and gas compacts so much that is forms a vague circular shape. This is called a protostar. As a protostar it is incredibly hot and busting with energy.
