This essay Buoyant Forces has a total of 276 words and 2 pages.
The purpose of this lab is to calculate bouyant forces of objects
submerged in water.
The first step in the lab was to measure the mass of a metal cylinder,
which was found to be 100g, and then to calculated it\'s weight, which was .98
newtons. Then next step was to measure the apparent weight of the cylinder when
it is completely submerged in a bath of water using the formula Wa=ma*g , this
was found to be 88.5grams. Knowing these two numbers, the bouyant force that
the water places on the object can be calculated using the formula Fb=W-Wa ,
Wa=.8673n W=.98n Fb=.1127n
Part 2 of this lab consisted of weighing an empty cup, which was 44grams.
And then filling another cup up to a certain point the if any more water was
added, it would spill out of a little opening in the cup, the water spilled out
could be caught in the first cup. This is done so that the water spilled out
can be weighed and compared to a calculated weight of which the water should be.
After filling the cup, the cylinder was put into the cup , allowing the water to
spill out and be caught in the first cup. After the water had spilled out it
was weighed, which was 8.3g, converted to kg was .0083g. The weight of this
displaced water in Newtons was 0.081423n.
The percentage error with the buoyant force from step one was calculated
using, this resulted, using .114 for Fb and .0813 for Wdisp, a 28.7% error.
After completing this lab, it has become more apparent as to how to
calculate boyant forces and how that information can be used.
Loneliness in the novel Of mice and MenLoneliness in the novel Of mice and Men The Feeling Only the Lonely could Feel Loneliness is the core of a broken soul. It feeds on exile and hate. It engulfs dreams, pleasures and certain futures.

LORD OF THE FLIESLORD OF THE FLIES Most children are confined to the society that is created for them. This society for the most part consists of their family and friends in school. In fact most children are a reflection of the society from which they are brought up in. Human society is taken for granted by most. People don’t consciously think about who is in power and why. They just go about everyday the same worrying about petty little problems that they seem to feel are of significant importance. But when thi

The littluns and bigguns represent members of the human race. The conflict between law and barbarism would have, I believe to be the same had the island been inhabited with adult survivors instead of children.

Well, Louis was not always that lucky. From childhood to his adulthood, Louis Armstrong changed much as a person and a musician. He worked very hard to become what he became and did not let anything get in the way of becoming a musician.

The definition of tragedy in an excerpt from Aristotle\'s Poetics is the re-creation, complete within itself, of an important moral action. The relevance of Aristotle\'s Poetics to Shakespeare\'s play Macbeth defines the making of a dramatic tragedy and presents the general principles of the construction of this genre.

As the story ends, the friendships of the characters breaks down into violence and death. First, Zerkow killed Maria and himself, next McTeag

Orwell got the title from switching the last two numbers of the publication date. In Orwell’s criticism of a perfect society, his book became known as one of the greatest anti-utopian novels of all time. The book’s message is so powerful that some say it went so far as to prevent the sinister future from realizing itself. Althought the book starts out as the story of a neuro

'O Pioneers'\'O Pioneers\' Until the late eighteenth century, any land located beyond the Alleghany mountains was believed to be savage, uninhabited land. Thus, it became known as the American frontier. According to Turner, the definition of frontier means, the meeting point between savagery and civilization and a region of sparse settlement. 1 With the overwhelming number of frontiersmen invading this uninhabited land, many myths about winning the West arose, some containing truth, while others neglectin

Although Odysseus does not appear in this epic until the fifth book, he is still the main character. Odysseus, whom I will call the hero, has many tribulations in this epic.

All the works of man are known and every soul is tried,” sings the chorus at the beginning of Oedipus Rex. After answering the riddle of man, Oedipus becomes the foremost of living men and takes his turn on the top of the wheel. Oedipus believes, “it is better to rule over man than over a wasted place; since, a walled township is nothing if it is empty and has no man within it.” But, what he does not realize is that v
Oedipus Rex TragicOedipus Rex Tragic Sophocles dramatized the famous story of Oedipus, the Greek mythological figure who killed his father, the king, and married his own mother. The blind prophet Teiresias speaks the words in this excerpt at the point in the play when he is asked to divine who has offended the gods by killing the former king Oedipus is a victim of destiny, gods, and his own fault. Destiny gave him his downfall in Oedipus Rex. His hubris made him think he could defy the fate by running away from C
Of Mice and Men by John SteinbeckOf Mice and Men by John Steinbeck I really enjoyed reading it which is unusual because I usualy don\'t enjoy reading to much. There was something about George and Lennie\'s friendship that really made me think. Seeing how they were and how they shared life was really intresting.

Kesey uses the setting of the story as his most powerful weapon in establishing his viewpoints. At first, one might consider the story to simply be a fine piece of contemporary fiction, but in reality it is a bitter commentary on the condition of the American society. Obviously, it becomes evident that Kesey will convey many v
