  • Eia Landfill Research Paper

    Eia Landfill Research Paper

    Environmental Impact Assessment Research Investigation An Environmental Impact Assessment, otherwise known as an EIA, is a critical component to the development of any plan or project prior to its completion. The purpose of the EIA is to make sure that all possible environmental impacts are taken into account prior to the development of major projects, programs, plans, and so forth. I decided to investigate an EIA report on the development of a specific landfill/recycling program

  • Einstien


    In 1905, Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity was proposed. The reason that it is so "special" is because it was part of the more complex and extensive Theory of General Relativity, which was published in 1915. His theory reshaped the world of physics when it contradicted all previous laws of motion erected by Galileo and Newton. By mathematically manipulating these previous laws of motion, physicists in the nineteenth century were able to explain such phenomena

    Electricity Report

    Electricity was first researched by Thales of Miletos around 600BC. He conducted a few experiments on static electricity in which he believed that friction made amber become magnetized. Other than the fact that people knew that eels produced electric shocks, electricity was little more than an intellectual curiosity for over 2000 years. Until 1600 when someone from England discovered the lodestone effect when amber with static would attract small objects towards it. In the 18th

    Abstract Chemical reactions can be used to produce electricity and electricity can be used to cause chemical reactions through oxidation-reduction reactions. The first part of the experiment measures the standard electrode potentials of five various half cells against the Cu2+(1M)|Cu half cell. The last three half cells are prepared through electrolysis. The electrode potentials of all reactions are positive which means that they are spontaneous. There is a significant percent difference from the theoretical and

  • Electrons


    The electron is a fundamental subatomic particle that carries a negative electric charge. It is a spin-Ѕ lepton that participates in electromagnetic interactions, and its mass is less than one thousandth of that of the smallest atom. Its electric charge is defined by convention to be negative, with a value of −1 in atomic units. Together with atomic nuclei, electrons make up atoms; their interaction with adjacent nuclei is the main cause of chemical bonding.

    Em Radiation

    electromagnetic radiation energy radiated in the form of a wave as a result of the motion of electric charges. A moving charge gives rise to a magnetic field, and if the motion is changing (accelerated), then the magnetic field varies and in turn produces an electric field. These interacting electric and magnetic fields are at right angles to one another and also to the direction of propagation of the energy. Thus, an electromagnetic wave is
