Chemical Engineering Scope Chemical engineering is broader in scope than electrical, civil, or mechanical engineering, because it more or less consists of the equal use of the three main engineering cornerstones (mathematics, physics, and chemistry), while other professions are based on primarily the first two. The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) describes chemical engineering as "that branch of engineering concerned with the development and application of manufacturing pr

NEW EYE TRACKING TECHNIQUES IMPROVE REALISM OF AIRCRAFT SIMULATORS A simulated flight environment for pilot training may soon be made more realistic through the use of eye-tracking technology developed by researchers at the University of Toronto's Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IMBE). Many safety and cost benefits are obtained by training aircraft pilots under simulated conditions, but to be effective

Informative Speech - Metals Purpose: My purpose is to inform the audience of how different types of steel are formed by explaining the different mechanical properties of Iron and Carbon compositions. I. Introduction A. Have you ever noticed that some steel, such as a long bridge is able to bend and have slack, whereas other types of steel are more brittle yet much harder, such as a propeller. If a bridge were more b

In Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, Dimmesdale, experiences the most emotional suffering from the weight of guilt placed upon him as the father of an illegitimate child. His lover, Hester Prynne bears their child and is chastised and exiled from her peers. The identity of the father is kept secret, so the community respects Dimmesdale as a member of the Doctrine of the Elect. Dimmesdale is considered a role model for other Puritans of Boston. Dimmesdale suffers the most becau

To find the coefficients of friction in a given system, an experiment needs to be performed. Finding the coefficient of static friction is the natural first step. Once this coefficient is found, the more complicated problem of finding the coefficient of kinetic friction is not so cumbersome. In this experiment, the force of static friction will be found and used to determine the corresponding coefficient of static friction. Coefficient of Static Friction: The orthodox convention for solv

Genetic engineering has struck a major controversy concerning issues in heath care, engineering of food and other biological agents, and cloning. Genetic engineering is the process of manipulating the genetic code or DNA of a particular organism. Compared to most sciences genetic engineering is quite new to our society. The moral and religious implications have been controversial issues since the inception of the concept. Many believe that we have crossed the line with genetic engineering an

Automotive History Why is it called an automobile? Or now a car? Why isn't it called anything else? Oliver Evens applied for a U.S. patent in Philadelphia in 1792 on a steam land carriage, which he called the "oruktor amphibolos". We could of been stuck with that name if it wasn't for more reasonable people working on the same concept. George B. Selden, an attorney in Rodchester, New York, applied for a patent for a " road machine" and got it. He was the first to get the patent. Sho

INTRODUCTION Virtual memory refers to an imaginary set of locations, or addresses, where you can store data. It is imaginary in the sense that the memory area is not the same as the real physical memory composed of transistors or capacitors. The efficient use of memory is a problem that has remained important since the development of the stored_program computer. At a time when computer memory was still expensive and had a small capacitance the programmers were encouraged to develop programs,

CUESTIONARIO TECNICO DE LA MADERA 1) Cuales son los principales componentes que constituyen a la madera. La madera como toda sustancia viva, esta formada por multitud de pequenas unidades individuales cementadas entre si llamadas celulas. Las celulas de la madera son tubulares, de forma aproximadamente rectangular, su longitud no excede de unos 5 mm, y su area transversal maxima de unos 70 micrometros. Las paredes de las celulas estan formadas de varias capas de celulosa,

Over the past four or five decades, and especially in recent years, there has been a lot of talk among the scientific community and in everyday life about the development of nuclear fusion as an energy source. It seems that the everyday person has some sort of fairy tale image of fusion power in the back of their head. When they hear about dwindling unrenewable resources such as coal, oil, and natural gas, they just sort of file it away with the hope that fusion power will come flying down wit
