For example, atomic and nuclear physics studies matter on the smallest scale at which chemical elements can be identified. The physics of elementary particles is on an even smaller scale since it is concerned with the most basic units of matter; this branch of physics is also known as high-energy physics because of the extremely high energies necessary to produce many types of particles in particle accelerators. On this scale, ordinary, commonsense notions of space, time, matter, and energy are no longer valid.
Summary of key points, bullet points of themes, ideas, research, etc. Quotes as appropriate, page numbers, new references, paths of investigation, etc. Be sure to check with the WSA Librarian for help in getting access to publications or online journals that would apply to your topic.
Work with your supervisor to devise a plan as t how your research question could be structured or go to the session with a proposed structure you have in mind for review chapter headings, for instance.
If you are finding it difficult to plan your time due to other assessment pressures or extra-curricular demands, then it may be useful to speak to your supervisor with regards to creating a structured research timeline or more specific timetable to help you to see exactly what is required and when.
January 28, DUE: Other issues to be prepared to discuss with your supervisor: Passivity - If you haven't done as much as you had hoped for since your first meeting, discuss the reasons and causes for this with your supervisor and ways to overcome or avoid this in future sessions.
What have you found out?
Any useful lines of thought or approaches to the question? Notes - Do you have a workable note-taking system in place? Essay plan - Go over how to best structure your essay. Exemplars - Try marking up a pre-existing essay with the assessment criteria, then go over this with your supervisor.
This will allow you to write with the assessment criteria firmly in mind. Time-management - Be prepared to adjust your normal routines to accommodate any delays or issues with your EE so far. Sticking to deadlines will ensure you get this done!
Writing - Commit to getting started on your writing! Subject and Research Question Slide 3: Background what your EE is about Slide 4: Detailed summary of one or two chapters or sections Slide 6: For this approach, Eric Bright's worksheets for analysis of historical primary and secondary sources can be used to help with deciding how to structure the writing.
Quality of preliminary writing submitted on June 3 EE assessment criteria Students would benefit from reading Chapter 7. Complete draft due to Susan Trower by 3: December 9, DUE:3.
SOUND Sound appears to be a topic distinct from motion and heat. However, we now understand sound to be an ordered motion of the molecules of the medium through which the sound propagates.
The amplitude of a standing sound wave in a long pipe closed at the left end and open at the right end is sketched below.
The vertical axis is the maximum displacement of the air, and the horizontal axis is along the length of the. Sound waves usually travel out in all directions from the source of sound, with an amplitude that depends on the direction and distance from the source.
As the sound wave travels through the medium, the particles that make up the medium undergo displacements. Draw a sound pressure diagram for the fundamental resonance of this tube, assuming that the stove pipe is “open” on both ends, and determine the frequency of the sound that is produced.
First, let me point out something that Ender's Game got right and something it got wrong. What it got right is the essentially three-dimensional nature of space combat, and how that would be. An Introduction to Acoustics S.W. Rienstra & A. Hirschberg Eindhoven University of Technology 2 Aug of sound generation by turbulence is the use of an integral equation which is much more suitable to introducing approximations than a differential equation.
We therefore discuss in some detail the use.
