Name: Bubble Gum Physics Lab Purpose: To introduce students to physics and speed Hypothesis: Who in your lab group can chomp gum the fastest? Safety: Don’t choke, don’t bite your tongue, don’t drool **READ ALL DIRECTIONS FOR EACH PART BEFORE STARTING!! ** Part 1: • Get a piece of bubble gum • Use a stopwatch to time 30 second intervals • Count the number of chomps you can do in 30 seconds and record it in Table 1 • Repeat this 5 times • Spit that gum out in the trash Data Table 1- |Trial |Chomps |Time |Speed | |1 | |:30 | | |2 | |:30 | | |3 | |:30 | | |4 | |:30 | | |5 | |:30 | | Speed = # of chomps time Part 2: • Get a new piece of bubble gum • Using a stopwatch to time 60 seconds start chewing • Have a partner count the number of chomps you can do, record the number at 20 seconds, 40 seconds & 60 seconds (This is for speed! Chew fast!) • Record the number of chomps data in table 2 Data Table 2- |Time |Chomps |Speed | |20s | | | |40s | |
Each morning people from around the world wake up and drink their routine caffeinated beverages as they prepare to tackle their day. The morning, however, is not the only time caffeine is depended upon. Caffeine is depended on at all times of the day whether it be to wake up, stay awake, or simply for a boost. Whether it be coffee, tea, or even a soft drink, many people believe that they can’t function without it. This is because “caffeine is an enhancer that stimulates the brain and central nervous system to keep the body awake and alert,” (Petre).
The encounter becomes a heated argument as Farhad refuses to pay for a door not fixed while Daniel explains that he only fixes locks, not doors. The ultimate result being the unfixed lock leaves the shop exposed to thieves who ransack the place leaving Farhad without an income source for his family. Farhad decides the only justice is to gun down Ruiz for the loss and believes he caused by not fixing the door. “Because of the communication display of Farhad toward Daniel, Farhad did not effectively accomplish what he wanted (Haggis, 2004).” The matter could have been easily handled effectively if Daniel maybe could have used nonverbal communication by
In the beginning of his speech, Obama says: “I imagine there are some seniors out there who are feeling pretty good right now, with just one more year to go“(pg. 1). He puts himself in the children's place by stating that he could imagine how some of them thinks and feels, and shows them that he recognizes those feelings and thoughts. He also adds his own personal experiences in his speech when he tells about his childhood in Indonesia with his mother, whom he was being home schooled by and that he had to wake up early every morning: “When I was young, my family didn´t have the money to send me where all American kids went to school. So she decided to teach me extra lessons herself.“(pg.
Up until this point their conversations were about day to day life such as things that had happened in school for example when George tells her, “You made a fine speech in class today.” Emily is also portrayed as quite childlike and makes statements like, “I’ll have a strawberry phosphate, thank you, Mr Morgan.” At the beginning of the extract both young people admit that they have taken to noticing and watching each other, “you were watching me when I did everything”, was how George described it. This is only of the types of love portrayed in the play, the first love of George and Emily. Love is an important theme in the play, not only the central story of George and Emily but the playwright focuses of the the power of love and the need for love among humans. As Mrs. Gibbs puts it, "Yes…people are meant to go through life two by two. 'Tain't natural to be lonesome,” then the Stage Manager repeats it again later in the play "Like Mrs. Gibbs said a few minutes ago people were made to live two-by-two."
I was very excited about this project, but was faced with the challenge of where to start, how to incorporate all of our ideas, and try to predict what obstacles we might encounter. We met with our teachers to gather some input and decide on the best approach. Our over all goal, and final product was to have a an ice cream bowl on a rail system powered by a motor to move along to different topping stations including hot fudge, sprinkles, and whipped cream, the final product would be an ice cream sunday! The user was able to choose their toppings in the order they wanted them place on the ice cream, and was abele to follow the process on a character display. Our project was fairly complex and used a multitude of components including two distance sensors (short and long range), DC motor, H-bridge, gear motor, servo, solenoid, power resistor, thermistor, numeric keypad, and character display.
The first question we asked was “what grade are you in,” which helped us figure out how much learning they have had. The second question was “what is your cumulative GPA,” which helped us know how well they do in school and what kind of grades they get. The third question was “how many school days a week do you eat breakfast,” is a well needed question to know if they regularly eat breakfast in the morning before school. The final question was “what gender are you,” which helped split up the subjects and create more data. Results We surveyed 53 students.
Adderall College students have always relied on stimulants such as caffeine, but it has recently become more common for students to abuse drugs such as Adderall in order to achieve even stronger stimulation. Students who feel they need a performance boost to succeed in class have been turning to the ADHD medication in order to help themselves through long hours of study and stressful exams. After we learned about social facilitation and inhibition in class, I started to wonder about Adderall. Because in class we learned that caffeine will just enhance your dominant response, so if adderall is used in the same way as caffeine is, then, wouldn’t some students do worse after taking adderall, it their behavior is inhibited? But I feel like all students turn to adderall thinking that it will only help them do better, so does that mean everyone’s behavior is facilitated because the majority of them do study better.
While many people would be discouraged by the title of the class alone, I was intrigued and immediately signed up. I will forever remembered the line he introduced the class with, "Welcome to Science Fiction & Horror. If you are easily confused or disgusted, you should get the f**k out of this class. S**t gets real in this class, so buckle up." Completely stunned by the first words coming out of this new, intimidating teacher, I was excited for an English class for the first time.
Names like Le Spewer, Fishtail Le Sewer and Manure. He thought by turning the other cheek this would not give Barry Baglsey any opportunity to pick on him. What it did was show Barry Bagsley that hel was too afraid to stand up to him which meant that Barry Bagsley continued to pick on him and call him names all the time. If Ishmael had felt good about his name then he wouldn’t have needed to turn the other cheek he could have shown the bullies that he was proud of his name. Being proud of his name would have made him feel good and shown the bullies that what they said didn’t worry him.
