- Aquaculture - 1,393 words
Aquaculture Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms in fresh, or salt water. A wide variety of aquatic organisms are produced through aquaculture, including fish, crustaceans, mollusks, algae, and aquatic plants. Unlike capture fisheries, aquaculture requires deliberate human intervention in the organisms' productivity and results in yields that exceed those from the natural environment alone. Stocking water with (juvenile organisms), fertilizing the water, feeding the organisms, and maintaining water quality are common examples of such intervention. Most aquacultural crops are destined for human consumption. However, aquaculture also produces bait fishes, ornamental or aquarium fish ...

- Calorimeter - 1,520 words
Calorimeter Introduction A team was sent to the chemical manufacturing division of a small chemical company to help the technicians with experiments. Since the notes written by the technicians were inaccurate and unfinished, all of the experiments they had preformed needed to redone and documented correctly. The head of the company gave the new team the task of trying to figure out why some chemical reactions caused the reaction vessel to get cold and others caused the vessel to get hot. The group constructed "an apparatus to measure the quantity of thermal energy gained or lost during the chemical reactions" (Bellama, 193). This device was called a calorimeter. A series of different reactio ...

- Energy - 1,130 words
Energy Energy is the ability to do work. The two different types of energy are kinetic and potential. Kinetic energy is energy in motion and potential energy is energy that is stored. Energy is measured in units which are BTU (British thermal unit) and a joule. The Law of Conservation of Energy states that energy can't be created or destroyed, but it can be changed in form. Heat is a form of energy that comes in different forms such as conduction, convection, and radiation. Conduction is when energy is passed directly from one item to another. Metals are excellent conductors of energy. Plastics or other materials aren't. These are called insulators. Convection is the movement of gases or liq ...

- Fusion - 1,354 words
Fusion Fusion reactions are inhibited by the electrical repulsive force that acts between two positively charged nuclei. For fusion to occur, the two nuclei must approach each other at high speed to overcome the electrical repulsion and attain a sufficiently small separation (less than one-trillionth of a centimeter) that the short-range strong nuclear force dominates. For the production of useful amounts of energy, a large number of nuclei must under go fusion: that is to say, a gas of fusing nuclei must be produced. In a gas at extremely high temperature, the average nucleus contains sufficient kinetic energy to undergo fusion. Such a medium can be produced by heating an ordinary gas of ne ...

- Geothermal Energy Study Guide - 458 words
Geothermal Energy Study Guide GEOTHERMAL ENERGY S T U D Y G U I D E WHAT IS GEOTHERMAL ENERGY? BASICALLY GEOTHERMAL ENERGY IS HEAT THAT COMES FROM WITHIN THE EARTH. "GEO" MEANS EARTH AND "THERMAL" MEANS HEAT. GEOTHERMAL ENERGY IS EARTH'S INTERIOR HEAT MADE AVAILABLE BY EXTRACTING IT FROM HOT ROCKS AND WATER. HOW IS IT CREATED? GEOTHERMAL ENERGY COMES FROM DEEP WITHIN THE EARTH'S CORE. IN THE UPPER MANTEL OF THE CRUST IS WHERE THE HEAT IS PRODUCED MOSTLY BY THE DECAY OF RADIOACTIVE ELEMENTS. THROUGH DIFFUSION THE GEO THERMAL ENERGY IS MOVED TO THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH. MOST COMMON OCCURRENCES OF THIS GEOTHERMAL ENERGY ARE GEYSERS AND HOT SPRINGS. WHEN THE WATER OF HOT SPRINGS AND GEYSERS ARE ...

- Momentum - 614 words
Momentum Abstract Measurements of velocity and mass of two objects colliding, support the conservation of linear momentum. The dynamics of different masses distinguish velocity values experimentally. Video recordings of two colliding masses can be manipulated to extract frames displaying distance verses time. Computer software enables us to derive the velocity. Different masses were tested to determine an increase, decrease, or equal effect. From this data, we ultimately derive the momentum of each cart and test the Law of Linear momentum. The following trials were measured: 1. An elastic collision with a cart moving at constant speed with a cart of equal mass originally at rest; 2. An elast ...

Momentum Conservation of Momentum Kristin Favreau October 26, 1999 Purpose: To show that momentum is conserved in a closed system by illustrating the conservation of momentum in an elastic collision and an inelastic collision. Method: If momentum is conserved in a closed system, the total momentum of the system before collision should equal the total momentum of the system after the collision. Strobe photos will be used in the calculations that will prove that momentum is conserved. 1.) Elastic collision: A strobe photo will be used that shows a large glider smashing into a smaller glider which is initially at rest. This will cause the smaller glider to move and the large glider will continu ...

- Seeing Well Without Contact Lenses And Glasses Is The Dream Of Millions Of Americans And Modern Medical Science Has Enabled T - 1,410 words
Seeing well without contact lenses and glasses is the dream of millions of Americans and modern medical science has enabled that dream to come true (Caster, 8). Since first grade, Dede Head, a 30-year-old fitness trainer in North Carolina, has worn glasses to correct sever nearsightedness and astigmatism. Over the years she became accustomed to wearing glasses and contacts, but this has limited many important aspects of her life, including sports. She then heard of a laser eye surgery that "supposedly", helped to correct a persons vision by means of lasers. She immediately signed up for the procedure and ever since that day, she has not worn glasses or contacts. Dede is just one of the eight ...

- The Atomic Bomb - 1,181 words
The Atomic Bomb By Douglas Thornton BOOM! The first detonation of an atomic bomb was on July 16,1945 on Hiroshima, Japan . That was one of the reasons why I picked this topic. Another reason was that there is lots of information on the atomic bomb out there and the last reason is I wanted to know why the atomic bomb has great explosive power. The main part of an atomic bomb is of course an atom. So that is what Im going to say first. The Atom Atoms are everything. It is your paper, your house, your clothes, and everything else. Atoms is the smallest thing on earth. You can fit a million atoms in about the width of a piece of paper. You cant see them with the naked eye or with the best micros ...

- Why Nuclear Fusion Is So Cool For A Fusion Reaction To Take Place, The Nuclei, Which Are Positively Charged, Must Have Enough - 1,186 words
Why nuclear fusion is so cool....... For a fusion reaction to take place, the nuclei, which are positively charged, must have enough kinetic energy to overcome their electrostatic force of repulsion. This can occur either when one nucleus is accelerated to high energies by an accelerating device, or when the energies of both nuclei are raised by the application of very high temperature. The latter method, referred to the application of thermonuclear fusion, is the source of a lot of really cool energy. Enough energy is produced in thermonuclear fusion to suck the paint of 1 city block of houses and give all of the residents permanent orange Afros. The sun is a example of thermonuclear fusion ...
