• ## Physics Lab Speed of Sound in Air

Physics Waves Lab SL Introduction: This lab will investigate the properties of mechanical waves such as a longitudinal wave, focusing on the question: Does a change in the frequency of a wave result in a significant and convincing change in the speed of the wave? Hypothesis: Changing the frequency of the wave will not result in a change in speed because the wavelength will change proportionally as in theory. Student Designed Investigation Procedure/ Planning Procedure:

• ## Physics Lab Report

Physics Lab Report Statement of the Problem: The problem that was arisen in Problem #5: Motion up an Incline was in reference to a change in acceleration in both an uphill and downhill motion. The question on hand was whether or not the acceleration was the same going uphill as it was downhill or different from each other in both directions. To obtain a secure conclusion this experiment required the use of a frictionless cart,

• ## Physics Lab

Introduction The purpose of this lab is to examine the motion of an electron, when it encounters a constant magnetic and electric field. We will also observe when the electric field and magnetic field will cancel each other out. This will lead to the electron having no net force acting upon it. By adjusting the values for the magnetic and electric fields, we will be able to check the different paths the electron follows. From

• ## Physics Lab Report

ABSTRACT The lab of one dimensional motion is a series of experiments that deal with different types of motion in a single direction. In the first experiment, one dimensional motion of a small cart on an air track is measured in a one photogate system. The acceleration was calculated by the infrared light emitting electrode of the photogate sensing the slacks on the picket fence. The calculation for gravity yielded 9.63 m/s^2, which is consistent

LAB 02: FREE FALL THEORY The purpose of the experiment was to measure and confirm the acceleration a is constant and a= 9.8 m/s2 due to gravity by timing a free-falling ball. Assumptions: There is no air resistance. Acceleration x_f-x_0= v_oy+1/2.a.t^2 x-0=1/2 a.t^2 x= 1/2.a.t^2=>a=2x/t^2 PROCEDURE Using a receptor pad to collect the table position vs time, with the height range 5cm to 120cm. The height is the distance from the pad to the ball.

• Emission • There are two significant effects of contamination by metal ions: 1. Salinity: When metal ion concentrations are too high and exceed safe limits. High salinity water is unsuitable for drinking or irrigation purposes. 2. Toxicity: Can occur even with extremely low concentrations of metal ions. These ions are often called heavy metal ions because their density are five times greater than that of water. • Atomic emission occurs when electrons are energetically

• ## Physical and Logical Database Design

After all business requirements have been gathered for a proposed network, they must be modeled. Models are created to visually represent the proposed network so that business requirements can easily be associated with network objects to ensure that all requirements have been completely and accurately gathered. Basically data modeling can fall into two types of categories: Physical modeling and Logical modeling. Logical modeling deals with gathering business requirements and converting those requirements into a model.

Dance: Physical Poetry of the Embodied Spirit By: Ryan Hallford All persons have several elements that constitute their particular existence. Certain modes of thought attempt to systemize and pin down this existence into intelligible categories; still, the individual always evades clarification. The person, a paradox of being and becoming, connotes something that is both constant and fluid. A natural analogy exists between all humans. Namely, something similar allows for a community of comparable beings, while
