  • Titanium - 522 words
    Titanium William Gregor in 1791, who was interested in minerals, discovered titanium. He recognized the presence of a new element, now known as titanium, in menachanite, a mineral named after Menaccan in Cornwall (England). Several years later, the element was rediscovered in the ore rutile by a German chemist, Klaproth. The pure elemental metal was not made until 1910 by Matthew A. Hunter, who heated TiCl4 together with sodium in a steel bomb at 700-800C. Titanium is used for alloys with aluminum, molybdenum, manganese, iron, and other metals. These alloys of titanium are used principally in the aerospace industry, for both airframes and engines, where lightweight strength and ability to wi ...

  • Combustion Carbon Dioxide - 1,146 words
    COMBUSTIOn & carbon Dioxide Research By Rabon Hutcherson II. Combustion and carbon dioxide, what are they? When people think of combustion they probably think of simple just bursting into flames; and for carbon dioxide you probably think of what we breath out and what plants take from the air and turn to oxygen. Even though these thoughts are true there is much more to combustion and carbon dioxide. Things you might not think of about combustion are, mathematical equations, models, solutions and chemical reactions, and for carbon dioxide dry ice, combustion and it being a solid. All of these factors you may not have known are now here for you to see. One of the things that has lead the way f ...

  • Feminine Beauty - 1,237 words
    Feminine Beauty When defining Feminine beauty one must decide in which time to define it. At certain times women have felt repressed by the term, usually due to the beauty business' influence; while at other times Women have found it liberatory: finding it their bonus as females but not their only power. One will also find that a correlation exists between the women's movement, or lack there of, and society's feelings about woman and their aesthetic appearance. A woman's beauty during the 1910s and early 1920's was not an aspect of one's life to be contemplated heavily. Woman pre 19th amendment were more concerned with gaining recognition of their equality then how they looked. Woman felt be ...

    ... e puncture-proof fuel cell. This fuel cell is designed to withstand a crash by deforming; this will reduce the chance of fire in a crash. The fuel cell is covered in Kevlar which is the same material used in bullet proof vests. This makes the fuel cell very strong. To absorb energy in a crash, the chassis is made of impact-absorbing body panels. These panels will crumple in a crash and absorb most of the energy. This same technology is now used on commercial passenger vehicles and is called a "crumple zone." In the event of a crash, the wheels of the car are designed to break off. This will make the car slide along the ground, making it slow down more quickly. This also helps to prevent ...

  • Gun Laws - 5,486 words
    Gun Laws States from Michigan to Nebraska to California, as well as the federal government, are considering new rules on letting law-abiding citizens carry guns. Does allowing citizens to carry concealed handguns deter violent crimes? Or does this cause otherwise law-abiding citizens to harm each other? Thirty-one states now have guaranteed their citizens the right to carry concealed handguns if applicants do not have a criminal record or a history of significant mental illness. So what have the results been? The numbers tell the story Using the FBI's crime-rate data for all 3,054 U.S. counties by year from 1977 to 1992, I co-authored a study in the January 1997 Journal of Legal Studies. We ...

  • Helium And Janssen - 268 words
    Helium And Janssen A French astronomer, Pierre-Jules-Csar Janssen (1824-1907), first obtained evidence for the existence of helium during the solar eclipse of 1868 in India when he detected a new yellow line (587.49 nm) in the solar spectrum very close to the yellow sodium D-line. It was not possible to produce this line in the laboratory. Sir Norman Lockyer (1836-1920), an English astronomer, recognised that no known element at that time gave this line and named the element helium for the sun. For many years helium was regarded as an element that might exist on the sun although it was unknown on the Earth. Spectroscopists at the time doubted the results concerning helium. However the claims ...

    It was the year 3000. The world was just coming out of another major war, World War Four. It has been a little over a year since the war ended. Things are recovering nicely. My older brother T.S. was recruited, he survived. We were happy to see him come home. School has just started back again, things have changed, the teachers seem to be very timid and quiet, they have hardly given us any homework. A lot of people I know have lost their families, Im lucky to still have my family. None of my close friends were effected either, my friends and I are all well off, we could afford not to get hurt. This was are last year in school. We were to graduate in four months; then we would never have scho ...

  • Polymers Polymers Are Large Molecules Composed Of Smaller Molecules Called Monomers Monomers Are Produced And Either Grow Tog - 415 words
    POLYMERS Polymers are large molecules composed of smaller molecules called monomers. Monomers are produced and either grow together or are assembled to produce a single polymer. There are synthetic and natural polymers. Some examples of natural polymers would be wood, starches, fingernails, and hair. Synthetic polymers are usually referred to as plastics. Petroleum, is the primary monomer used to produce polymers. An English chemist named Alexander Parkes was the first scientist to produce the first synthetic polymer in 1862. John Wesley Hyatt, an American, was the first person to produce a useable polymer two years later. He named the product celluloid. The prime virtue of polymers is a hig ...

  • Silicon - 1,220 words
    Silicon Silicon is an essential element in humans, found in significant concentrations in hair, bone, epidermis and dental enamel. It is also the second most abundant element on the earths crust, constituting about 28% by weight.(cite) Many foods and beverages, including certain vegetables, grains, rice, and beer have been shown to contain significant amounts of silicon. Silicone is a synthetic form of silicon and includes 40% silicon by weight. The silicones are synthetic polymers and are not therefore found naturally. They have a linear, repeating silicon-oxygen backbone akin to silica. However, organic groups attached directly to the silicon atoms by carbon-silicon bonds prevent formation ...

  • Sphere - 1,321 words
    Sphere Sphere is about a futuristic sphere that gives a group of scientists a special and unusual power- the power of being able to turn fantasy into reality. The group of scientists are kept in total wonder as to why they were being sent to the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The scientists consisted of Norman Johnson, a psychologist; Beth Halpern, a zoologist and biochemist; Harry Adams, a mathematician; and Ted Fielding, an astrophysicist. Each scientist played an important role- Norman was to watch the team because no one had ever seen an alien and they didn't know how people would react. Beth was to assess any life form that the team might come across. Harry was there because math is the u ...

The Josephson effect. Another interesting property of superconductors is the Josephson effect. The Josephson effect is based on an occurrence called tunneling. Tunneling occurs when a thin oxide barrier is squeezed between 2 superconductors (Simon and Smith 1988, p 129). The 2 superconductors are coupled together and the current through them is measured. When the superconductors are exposed to different magnetic fields and radiation, the current flow sometimes changes because electrons jump through the oxi ...

  • Tennis - 673 words
    Tennis Technology Racquet It seems like only yesterday that Prince was introducing the Michael Chang Long-body tennis racquet to the world. It was the first extra-length racquet designed to be a "player's racquet" with less power and more control. The previous extra-length racquets we have seen had huge heads and funky designs. They generated an enormous amount of power and tremendous spin, but they were ineffective with regard to control. The Michael Chang Long-body changed all that. This is the racquet that brought extra length to the masses. In reality, the Michael Chang Long-body racquet has been on the market for about three years. In the computer industry it would be a dinosaur. Althou ...

You may remember the time when [pro player] Graig Nettles put a bunch of rubber "superballs" inside his bat, and the bat broke, and all the balls spilled out. Nettles attributes the persistence of corking more to head games between the players than to any advantage a corked bat might have. Players have also been known to rub their bats with ham bones or glass bottles, a process called "boning," in an attempt to harden the bat. However, this practice doesn't seem to produce any benefit beyond the psychological either. In early days, some hitters would illegally hammer nails into their bats so that the ball would strike "iron." Even if the bat ...
