Introduction: When an object is dragged across a horizontal surface, the force of friction that must be overcome depends on the normal force as [pic] and the normal force is given by [pic]. When the surface becomes an inclined plane, the normal force changes and when the normal force changes, so does the friction. In this lab, you will change the angle of an inclined plane and observe how weight is resolved into its components (Fn and F//) using the basic trig functions.

Friction

...Friction is what happens when any two things rub against each other. These can be solid things, like your two hands rubbing together, or your skis rubbing on the snow, or a hammer hitting a nail, or they can be gases, like friction with the air slowing down your car, or liquids, like friction with the water slowing down a boat. Nobody completely understands what causes friction. Partly, friction happens when the rough edges of one object snag on the rough edges of another object, and some of the objects' energy has to be used to break off those rough edges so the objects can keep moving. And when you rub two soft things together, like your hands, sometimes they squish into each other and get in each other's way. But even completely smooth, hard things have some friction. This friction is the result of the molecules in both objects being attracted to each other. We know how to make more friction or less friction, and how to predict how much friction there will be. There's more friction when the two objects are pushed together harder. If you push your hands together, it's harder to rub them up and down. If you pull the brake lever harder, your bike will stop faster. Because gravity pulls harder on things with more mass, things with more mass have more friction and are harder to move - a cube of iron will be harder to move than a cube of wood. Two solid things usually have more friction than two liquid things, or one liquid thing and a solid - that's why you slip on a wet......

Introduction: Interactions between predators and their prey are important in 1) determining the population of both predators and prey and 2) determining and maintaining the structure of a community. Many factors enter into the ultimate outcome of predator-prey interactions. Using a simulation of predator-prey interaction including mice and coyote will be conducted to determine population over time in their habitat. Materials: * Shallow plate (the field) * Beans (the mice) * Spoons (the coyotes) Procedure: 1. Shake the plate to randomly distribute the mice. 2. Swipe the spoon through the field and capture mice. 3. Record data Mice Minimum mice per generation = 10 Maximum mice per generation = 100 Mice double every generation OR hit 100 Capture less than 5 mice and coyote dies Capture 5 or more and coyote survives Coyote 5 or more survive 6-9 mice = 1 baby 10-14 mice = 2 babies 15 or more = 3 babies Minimum coyote = 1 Maximum coyote = 17 Results Quantitative Results ...

Cva Simulation Lab

...Pamela Lasley SIM Lab CVA 1. TIA- Temporary reduction of or cessation of cerebral blood flow in a specific neurovascular distribution as a result or partial or total occlusion Thrombotic- Develops when an obstruction forms in the blood vessels of the brain. The atherosclerotic process, which often affects the large cerebral arteries produces most of the thrombotic strokes. Embolic- The clot or plaque fragment travels through an outside area outside the brain, until it lodges in the cerebral artery. Mitral valve stenosis, Afib, and myocardial infarction are cardiovascular conditions that may lead to the development of clots that become emboli. Hemorrhagic- A blood vessel in the brain ruptures and bleeding the brain occurs. These type of CVA’s are further classified by their location. 2. Risk factors for TIA’s include the following; cardiovascular disease, carotid vascular disease, peripheral artery disease, high levels of homocysteine, and excessive weight. Lifestyle choices that are the risk for TIA’s are; physical inactivity, poor nutrition, and the use of birth control pills. Risk factors included for Thrombotic stroke include; older age, and some autoimmune diseases. Risk factors for Embolic and Hemorrhagic CVA include; Obstructive sleep apnea, cardiovascular disease, being 55 or older, race (African Americans have a higher risk of stroke than people of other races do), and gender (men have a higher risk than women) Risk factors for TIA’s,......

The Efficienty of a Ramp

...Efficiency of a Ramp By: Tony Akiki Partner: Nikolas Dobson Teacher: Mr. Devine Class: SPH3U1 School: Saint Johns Collage Date Concluded: June 10, 2016 Due Date: June 17, 2016 Question: How does the angle of inclination on a ramp affect the efficiency of the ramp? Hypothesis: I believe that the steeper the ramp is the more work you have to put in to push it up making to less efficient. If the angle of the ramp is very low, then you will have to put less force into it. This makes sense because if the angle of the ramp is close to 90 degrees the closer it is to free fall. This means that there is nothing under the cart to support it and the only thing preventing the cart from falling is the force of you holding it up in the air, which means that it will take the most force. To conclude the closer, the angle of the ramp is to 90 degrees the more force you will have to put into it to push it up which means that you are getting more work done and thus making it more efficient. Experimental Design: A chair and a piece of wood served as the ramp. A cart flipped on its back with weights attached to it and a newton scale served as the object that had to be pulled up the ramp. The data collected in this experiment will show us how efficient the ramp is at different angles. Table #1: Variables Controlled | Dependent | Independent | * Time of day * Person pulling * Length of ramp * The speed the object is getting pulled up by | * How efficient the......
