The purpose of this experiment was to determine the distribution of stress in a thick cylinder when subjected to internal pressure. This experiment aids the understanding of how a cylinder withstands internal pressures and how the behaviour of stresses varies at different points along the cylinder radius.

Using Lame's equations for a thick cylinder subjected to an internal pressure, the following equations, based on pressure and geometry, may be obtained to calculate hoop and radial stresses:

σθ= PK2-1(1+ R22r2)

σr= PK2-1(1- R22r2)

P = Internal pressure
R1 = Internal radius of the cylinder R2 = External radius of the cylinder K = R2R1 r = Radius to selected strain gauge

Furthermore, equations based on material properties and experimental values may be used to calculate hoop and radial stresses: σθ=E1-v2(εθ+vεr) σr= E1- v2(εr+vεθ) Where: E = Modulus of elasticity v = Poisson’s ratio εθ= Hoop Strain εr= Radial Strain

Apparatus * “TQ” SM1011 Thick Cylinder * PC with “VDAS” software The SM1011 consists of an aluminium alloy cylinder where the two halves are firmly locked together and held using two circular, steel diaphragms. One face of the joint (at right angles to the longitudinal axis) between the two halves has a shallow groove turned eccentrically to the bore which contains ten active strain gauges (5 hoop, 5 radial) fixed as shown in Figure 1. The cylinder can be subjected to various internal pressures using the hand wheel attached. Cylinder Specifications: Dimensions (mm): 203(L); 150(ID); 37(OD) Material: Aluminium alloy HE15 Properties: E = 73.5GN/m2 v = 0.33

...means “the number of cells per unit volume of liquid”. For example, they might want to find out the density of red blood cells in blood plasma, the density of bacteria in milk, or the population of Paramecium sp. (a protozoan) in water from a pond. The simplest, most convenient and cheapest means of accurately determining the number of cells in a sample is to use a haemocytometer and a microscope. A haemocytometer is a specialised slide that has a counting chamber with a known volume of liquid. The haemocytometer is a device originally designed for the counting of blood cells. It is now also used to count other types of cells as well as other microscopic particles. The haemocytometer was invented by Louis-Charles Malassez and consists of a thick glass microscope slide with a rectangular indentation that creates a chamber. This chamber is engraved with a laser-etched grid of perpendicular lines. The device is carefully crafted so that the area bounded by the lines is known, and the depth of the chamber is also known. It is therefore possible to count the number of cells or particles in a specific volume of fluid, and thereby calculate the concentration of cells in the fluid overall. The haemocytometer consists of a heavy glass slide with two counting chambers, which is 0.1mm deep, each of which is divided into nine large 1mm squares, on an etched and silvered surface separated by a trough. A cover slip sits on top of the raised supports of the ‘H’ shaped troughs enclosing......

...MEASUREMENT OF LENGTH: VERNIER CALIPER AND MICROMETER CALIPER A. L. P. Libera, N. C. Lindog, A. D. T. Manlagnit, M. L. C. G. Marasigan, J. F. R. Marquez, J. M. M. Mendones College of Engineering, Adamson University Abstract THIS LABORATORY REPORT PRESENTS THE ACCURACY OF MEASUREMENTS USING THE CALIPER. THE MAIN OBJECTIVE OF THIS LABORATORY ACTIVITY WAS TO BE ABLE FOR THE STUDENTS TO FAMILIARIZE ON HOW TO USE THE CALIPERS AS INSTRUMENTS FOR MEASURING PURPOSES. ANOTHER PURPOSE OF THIS EXPERIMENT IS TO RETAIN OR MINIMIZE THE PERCENTAGE ERROR AND PERCENTAGE DIFFERENCE OF THE PREVIOUS ACTIVITY TO SHOW THAT INSTRUMENTS USED FOR MEASURING ARE MORE ACCURATE. 1. INTRODUCTION The goal of physics is to provide an understanding of nature. The science of physics was developed to explain our physical environment.  In no subject does measurement play as important a role as in science. Real science cannot exist without measurement. Calculating accuracy reveals how close a set of measurements are to an accepted reference or true value. This differs from precision, which describes how close the measurements are to each other. Determining the accuracy of a measurement usually requires calibration of the analytical method with a known standard. Accuracy in measuring is knowing the  smallest reading that can be accurately measured while using an instrument or a device. The two common instruments used in measuring that increase the accuracy......

The Freundlich Isotherm q=αC1v was then found to be a better model to approximate the adsorption isotherm for BSA as compared to Langmuir Isotherm. From the experimental data, the static capacity determined from Langmuir Isotherm approximation was estimated to be 330.033mg/g and the dynamic capacities flow rates of 5.0, 2.5, 0.5 ml/min were 0.918, 1.431 and 2.066 mg/g respectively, thus agreeing with theoretical knowledge that the static capacities should be larger than dynamic capacities as sufficient time were allowed for......

...cutting, though gloves were put on so that skin oil would not stain the filter paper. Also, the filter paper was not laid on the lab table, but on a paper towel. With a pencil, a line was drawn 2 cm from the bottom edge of the paper. Marks were put on the line, 2 cm apart, and labeled with the appropriate cations and the unknowns labeled as U1, U2, and U3. The stationary phases were then spotted with the corresponding knowns and unknowns, then dried under a heat lamp. This spotting process was repeated 3 times. It was done using glass capillary tubes; these used adhesive and cohesive forces to draw up the cation solutions into the tube and subsequently released them onto the filter paper when touch. With the stationary prepared, the developing chamber was made. In a 600-ml beaker 9 ml of acetone and 1ml of 6 M HCl were combined (under a fume hood) to prepare a total of 10 ml of eluting solution. The solution was carefully poured into the beaker without touching the sides using a sting rod. The solution that was created was made sure to be under 1.5cm so that it does not touch the spots on the chromatography paper that had been prepared. Saran wrap was torn to cover the entire top of the beaker tightly. Thus, the developing chamber was created. Next, the stationary phase was prepared for elution. The filter/chromatography paper was formed into a cylinder, carefully so that the edges would not touch. Holding the edges apart, the paper was stapled into shape. The spots......

(M.U.S.E). • Hypothesis/Predicted Outcome o Based on what I’ve learned I expect that species will undergo changes if they were split into 2 different groups, some would adapt and some wouldn’t. • Methods o The methods I used in this lab came from M.U.S.E. The initial separation would consist of some species from the mainland reaching the isolated Island, then after that the isolated population would begin to diverge because of the genetic drift and natural selection, then after that overtime divergence may eventually become sufficient to cause reproduction isolation. (M.U.S.E). • Results/Outcome o As a result, Natural selection will cause different selective and adaptive pressures to occur between the two divided populations and they will evolve forever. Over time this will result in speciation which is the creation of two new species. (M.U.S.E). •......

With a Hypotonic (low) solution the cell will gain water, therefore it will expand and could burst (lyse). However with a Hypertonic (high) Solution the cell will lose water, therefore it will shrivel. Luckily there is also Isotonic (same/equal) where the cell will gain and lose water at the same rate, therefore it will not gain or lose water overall!

...Final Lab Report James Dillon SCI 207: Dependence of Man on the Environment Instructor: Jessica Bostock February 20, 2016 Final Lab Report Abstract The experiments conducted for this lab report focused on water contamination and filtration. Experiment 1 was effects of groundwater contamination. Oil, vinegar, and laundry detergent were added to clean water with no means of filtration. The clean water was found to be contaminated. A filtration system consisting of cheesecloth and 60 ml of soil was created and the contaminated samples were filtered through it. The soil and cheese cloth did not affectively filter the contaminants. Experiment 2 focused on water treatment and a filtration system using cheesecloth, sand, activated charcoal, alum, and gravel was created. The contaminated water sample was created by mixing soil and water together. After the contaminated water was put through the filtration system and a few drops of bleach were added you could see that much of the sediment was filtered out, but an overwhelming bleach smell remained. The third experiment was to determine drinking water quality. Samples of Dasani and Fiji bottled water were compared to my local tap water. Test strips were used to determine each samples ammonia, chloride, alkalinity, chlorine, hardness, phosphate, and iron levels. The results were that the Dasani water was cleaner overall and that the Fiji water......

...Elmer’s glue in a measuring cylinder and pour into a Styrofoam cup. 2. Add 10ml of 4% borax solution (sodium borate) to the cup. Stir vigorously until gelling is complete. 3. Wearing disposable gloves, remove the material from the cup and knead it thoroughly to mix the contents completely. Roll the putty around in your hand, gently squeezing the material to remove air bubbles at the same time. Continue to knead until the desired consistency is reached. Results and discussions 1. It stretches if we pull the putty apart slowly. Feels more stretch than the slime. 2. It breaks cleanly too if we pull it apart sharply and quickly. 3. The putty is very bouncy as compared to the slime. 4. Wrote ink-based pen on some paper and placed the putty on it while applying pressure. When lifted, the ink is on the putty as it sticks on to it. Conclusion Like the slime, Silly Putty is also a shear-thickening substance. The shear-thickening behavior happens they form these short-lived cross-linking bonds.  Basically it grabs onto the polymer chains monetarily, releases quickly, and then it re-forms another cross-link in a different place. This grab-release process happens repeatedly and rapidly, but also not fast until it lets the fluid flow normally. It bounces and also has a rubbery texture. References Post-lab questions 1.......

EQUIPMENT: Three different geometric solids: 1 identified as white cylinder, 1 identified as brass-colored cylinder, 1 identified as silver-colored sphere. Meter stick (wooden, displaying measurements in cm) Analog scale (zero-ed prior to experiment) Manual caliper Digital caliper (zero-ed prior to each measurement) PRINCIPLE: This lab is intended to reinforce the importance of using proper techniques to attain precise measurements. It further demonstrates that reliability of results from different measuring devices. In this experiment, the most rudimentary measuring tool was the meter stick followed by the manual caliper and then the digital caliper. Measuring each object five times should reinforce the different interpretations of team members as well as the variance between the different tools used to measure the objects. In addition to measuring the length, width and height of each object, the mass was attained through the use of an analog scale. While a digital scale would have shown a more precise measurement, the analog scale was a more appropriate tool with the meter stick and manual caliper as the significant figures produced by......

...Lab reportTeiya Bilon August 16, 2011 Period 3 Physical Science This past week in lab, Mr.Kagawa divided us into groups to complete a toothpick bridge. Some of the requirements were that the entire bridge had to span 12 inches apart and 2 inches off the surface, with the support of piers. While we worked together with our teammates we got to know more about the people we are working with. We researched different structures of other bridges in class as well as at home. We also gathered information on how we would use the supplies we are provided to promote good strength on the base of the bridge. The purpose of labs are: to work well with a good amount of people in a group, gain better knowledge of the scientific method, and to also have fun. Working with other people gave me more ideas on how to construct different models of bridges. To gain better knowledge and understanding of the scientific method, actually writing it out and following the procedure helped. The lab was very fun, it wasn’t like any ordinary class where you’d take notes and read from a book. Our hypothesis stated, if the pillars and base were thick and strong then it would hold more books and not break. The materials we used were also apart of the requirements and constraints. We were only given a certain amount of toothpicks and other than that just glue and our open mind. Steps throughout lab: 1) Group drafted blueprint 2) Got materials from teacher 3) Start constructing the......

...Why do we keep a lab notebook? In the ‘real world’, you will be expected to record what you do and how you do it, with the data clearly identifiable. There are 2 reasons for this: • Any scientific experiment is only considered valid if it can be repeated by someone else using your notebook. • If you develop a new product or process, your notebook becomes a legal document that can be scrutinized in a court of law, especially in cases of patent infringement. In order to meet these requirements, certain conditions must be met: • Notebooks shall have bound pages, loose-leaf and spiral bound are not acceptable. • All pages must be numbered prior to use. This will show if any pages have been removed that contained data that might compromise interpretation of your conclusions. • All data shall be entered chronologically. Do not leave empty pages to insert information later. If you finish with a large expanse of blank page, put a line through it to show that it will not be used. • All notes are to be made in indelible pen – pencil will be penalized. If you make a mistake, just draw a single line through it, not a childish scribble to hide all traces! • All data will be recorded in your lab notebook at the moment it is generated. No notes shall be written on scraps of paper or memorized for later. Other notes about the lab notebook: All pre-lab and experimental work is hand-written in your lab notebook. ......
