Egg floating in salt water - Science experiment This is an experiment to understand the concepts of density and buoyant force for students. For this experiment you'll need: • Some eggs • Water • Salt • A tall measuring glass Pour some water into the measuring glass until it is about half full. Take an egg and gently put into the glass. What did u observe? The egg sinks. It dives to the bottom of the glass. Pour some fresh water into a measuring glass. Now, add lots of salt to this glass of water. You might need to add atleast 6 table spoons of salt to make the water salty. Now, take the egg and gently lower the egg into the salt water and watch what happens. The egg floats. Try to push down in the water. Its does not sink and continues to float. Repeat this experiment with another egg. Now let's understand what just happened here: An egg sinks in salt water as salt is denser as compared to fresh water. For any object to float, the weight of the object should be lesser than or equal to the buoyant force. Buoyancy or buoyant force is an upward force exerted by a fluid that opposes the weight of an immersed object. The weight of the water displaced = Density of the water * Volume * Gravity Obviously, since the density of salt water is more than density of fresh water, hence the weight of the water displaced will be greater in the case of the salt water, resulting in a greater buoyant force. This greater buoyancy opposes the weight of the egg and hence stops it from sinking. Infact, the more salt in the water, the more buoyant an object becomes. In this case, the density of the salt water is greater than the density of the egg. Adding the salt in the water increased the density of the water there by causing the eggs to float. Do try this experiment at home or at school with your friends and let us know how you enjoyed floating eggs :)

In which John Green ACTUALLY teaches about the Civil War. In part one of our two part look at the US Civil War, John looks into the causes of the war, and the motivations of the individuals who went to war. The overarching causes and the individual motivations were not always the same, you see. John also looks into why the North won, and whether that outcome was inevitable. The North's industrial and population advantages are examined, as are the problems of the Confederacy, including its need to build a nation at the same time it was fighting a war. As usual, John doesn't get much into the actual battle by battle breakdown. He does talk a little about the overarching strategy that won the war, and Grant's plan to just overwhelm the South with numbers. Grant took a lot of losses in the latter days of the war, but in the end, it did lead to the surrender of the South.

Traffic congestion on urban road and motorway networks has a strong economic and social impact. A significant and growing interdisciplinary effort by the automotive industry, as well as by numerous research institutions, has been devoted in the last decades to planning, development, testing and deployment of a variety of Vehicle Automation and Communication Systems (VACS) that are expected to revolutionise the features and capabilities of individual vehicles within the next decades. If exploited appropriately, the emerging VACS may enable sensible novel traffic management actions aiming at mitigating traffic congestion and its detrimental implications. The presentation starts with a brief introduction to the rationale and impact of traffic management, along with an overview of expected changes in the years and decades to come. Existing, planned and emerging VACS, which have an impact on the traffic flow characteristics, are discussed and classified; and potential implications for future traffic management are presented. Related research needs and specific tasks and challenges are identified and commented. Some preliminary results from the ERC project TRAMAN21, referring to (microscopic and macroscopic) traffic flow modelling, traffic state estimation, system architecture, local and network-wide control tasks and approaches, are briefly outlined.

All numbers, including whole numbers, integers, fractions and decimal numbers, can be written in the numerator-denominator form. A rational number is a number that can be written in the form p/q, where p and q are integers and q ≠ 0. . The denominator of a rational number can never be zero. A rational number is positive if its numerator and denominator are both either positive integers or negative integers. If either the numerator or the denominator of a rational number is a negative integer, then the rational number is called a negative rational number.

Minnesota's apple season is making an early debut at orchards throughout the metro. Warmer than usual weather last March sped up the season, but a cold stretch in April could mean the crop is a little smaller than usual. At Minnetonka Orchards in Minnetrista, apple grower Lowell Schaper opened for business August 17, a full week ahead of schedule. It's the earliest season Schaper can remember after more than 35 years in the business. "The apples are roughly two weeks early," said Schaper. "It's probably the earliest that we've experienced." A spring season of weather contrasts, from warmer temperatures in March to below freezing in April, has created a mixed bag for apple growers. Schaper says his crop of SweetTango apples and the Zestar variety are some of the best that his orchard has produced, but the HoneyCrisp crop is down. Schaper attributes the low quantities of HoneyCrisp to the colder snap in April that left some apple blossoms vulnerable to frost. "We just don't have the numbers of apples on there that we would have on a full crop year," said Schaper. "Some areas in the orchard it got down into the low 20s, it killed a lot of bloom." The early start to the apple crop means the peak of the season will arrive in September rather than October this year. Apple growers, dependent on strong sales during the short, two month, apple season, are eager to get the message out to customers that orchards are open for business. Sarah Borchers of Medina brought her young daughter, Ella, out to the orchard Tuesday. The early season fit their schedule just fine. "Before school starts, it's easy to find time to come out and might as well get a jump on making apple pie," Borchers said with a smile.

10/15/2015 From cybernetics to systems theory to present-day parametricism, organization has haunted the architectural imagination. Today, many debates about design practice center on data. Given the pervasiveness of information in the material, spatial, formal, and programmatic forms of organization that today’s designer must confront—in objects, networks, and genealogies—the obsession with data is hardly surprising. But data has no intrinsic bearing on the architectural process or its products. It is; how data is organized—acquired, quantified, represented, processed, and manipulated—is what differentiates design outcomes.

In recent years, environmental justice scholarship has exploded. But virtually every relevant piece of work has understood the history of environmental justice as dating only to the late 20th century. This talk goes back to the 17th century, seeking to trace and analyze the evolution of a positive environmental rights discourse in European and American history. Having established our opposition to environmental injustice, we might want to ask: what exactly are we aiming for, in positive terms? What are the components of environmental justice? Is there any common ground left to stand on? And how might a deeper historical perspective help us answer these questions? Aaron Sachs (AB ’92) is Professor of History and American Studies at Cornell University, where he has taught since 2004. In 2006, he published The Humboldt Current: Nineteenth-Century Exploration and the Roots of American Environmentalism (Viking), which won Honorable Mention for the Frederick Jackson Turner Award, given to the best first book in the field of U.S. history by the Organization of American Historians (OAH). In 2013, he published Arcadian America: The Death and Life of an Environmental Tradition (Yale U. Press), which was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in general nonfiction. Sachs has also published articles in such journals as Environmental History, Rethinking History, American Quarterly, and History and Theory. In his graduate teaching, he works with students not only in History but also in English, Science and Technology Studies, History of Architecture, City and Regional Planning, Anthropology, and Natural Resources. At Cornell, Sachs is the faculty sponsor of a radical underground organization called Historians Are Writers, which brings together graduate students who believe that academic writing can be moving on a deeply human level. He is also the founder and coordinator of the Cornell Roundtable on Environmental Studies Topics (CREST). Sachs is currently at work on book projects focusing on environmental modernity; environmental justice; and environmental humor.

This video is of a meeting of the Triunfo-Lobo Community Association with representatives of the Los Angeles county Department of Regional Planning, June 12, 2014. On June 16, 2015, with virtually no public notice, a Temporary Emergency Ordinance to place moratorium on vineyard permits in the Santa Monica Mountains was put before the LA County Board of Supervisors. Drafted by LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, the alleged reason being given for the ordinance was the ongoing drought in California. The Malibu Coast Vintners & Grape Growers Alliance responded with data proving inconclusively that grapevines are drought tolerant and beneficial to their surroundings when grown sustainably using best farming practices, as are all vines in the region. The rationale behind continuing the ordinance was then amended as a response to an unexplained upsurge in the number of vineyard permit applications received over the previous six months. The Alliance quickly discovered that these applications were made in response to statements made by representatives Emma Howard and David McDonald from the LA County Department of Regional Planning. During a meeting with members of the Triunfo Lobo Community Association on June 12, 2014, these representatives urged members to apply for a vineyard permit now if they thought that they might want to plant a vineyard in the future, since the regulations would be changing. They were assured that if a permit had been issued they’d be grandfathered in regardless of when the permit was granted. This increase in permit requests remains the cornerstone for the Supervisor's argument for adoption of an ordinance that will effectively ban vineyards in the Santa Monica Mountains. ThThis entire situation has been a case of the Supervisor or the Department of Regional Planning requesting information from the Alliance and then ignoring the data when it doesn't suit their goal. Whether a matter of ignorance or arrogance, bad politics are the antithesis of good government. Staff at the Department of Regional Planning has NOT been given enough time to thoroughly research this matter and are under continual pressure to rush the vineyard amendments through the system.

In this Video i will tell you About the World tallest building which is Burj Khalifa Burj Khalifa has redefined what is possible in the design and engineering of supertall buildings. By combining cutting-edge technologies and cultural influences, the building serves as a global icon that is both a model for future urban centers and speaks to the global movement towards compact, livable urban areas. The Tower and its surrounding neighborhood are more centralized than any other new development in Dubai. At the center of a new downtown neighborhood, Burj Khalifa’s mixed-use program focuses the area’s development density and provides direct connections to mass transit systems. Burj Khalifa’s architecture has embodied references to Islamic architecture and yet reflects the modern global community it is designed to serve. The building’s Y-shaped plan provides the maximum amount of perimeter for windows in living spaces without developing internal unusable area. As the tapering tower rises, setbacks occur at the ends of each “wing” in an upward spiraling pattern that decreases the mass of the tower as the height increases. These setbacks were modeled in the wind tunnel to minimize wind forces. The design of the Tower was significantly influenced by its performance with respect to the wind, in both its shaping and orientation. The building went through many wind tunnel tests and design iterations to develop optimum performance. The exterior cladding, comprised of aluminum and textured stainless steel spandrel panels, was designed to withstand Dubai’s extreme temperatures during the summer months by using a low-E glass to provide enhanced thermal insulation. Vertical polished stainless steel fins were added to accentuate Burj Khalifa’s height and slenderness. The unprecedented height of the Burj Khalifa required it to be an innovative building in many ways. Design techniques, building systems, and construction practices all required rethinking, and in many cases new applications, to create a practical and efficient building. The structural system, termed a “buttressed core,” is designed to efficiently support a supertall building utilizing a strong central core, buttressed by its three wings. The vertical structure is tied together at the mechanical floors through outrigger walls in order to maximize the building’s stiffness. The result is an efficient system where all of the building’s vertical structure is used to support both gravity and lateral loads. The Tower incorporates numerous enhancements to the fire and life safety systems, including “lifeboat” operation for elevators which allows for them to be used for controlled evacuation under certain situations, decreasing total evacuation time by 45% over stairs alone. Due to its height, the building is able to utilize ventilation where cooler air temperatures, reduced air density, and reduced relative humidity at the top of the building allow for “sky-sourced” fresh air. When air is drawn in at the top of the building, it requires less energy for air conditioning, ventilation, and dehumidification. The building’s height also generates a substantial stack effect due to the thermal differences between the buildings’ interior and exterior, but Burj Khalifa was designed to passively control these forces, reducing the need for mechanical means of pressurization. Burj Khalifa has one of the largest condensate recovery systems in the world. Collecting water from air conditioning condensate discharge prevents it from entering the wastewater stream and reduces the need for municipal potable water. The tower’s management systems utilize smart lighting and mechanical controls which lower operational costs, allow for a more efficient use of building resources and services and better control of internal comfort conditions. Individual electric energy monitoring systems enable energy optimization of the tower’s systems over its lifetime. With over 185,800 sq m (2,000,000 sq ft) of interior space designed for Burj Khalifa, planning of the building’s interior space began at the earliest stages of its design focusing on three main goals—to recognize and acknowledge the building’s height, to integrate its structural and architectural rationale, and to appreciate the locale’s heritage, history and culture. The interiors of the uppermost floors were designed to reflect celestial influences. This is in contrast to the lower floors, which are inspired by natural elements. An art program for the Tower was developed in which over 500 individual pieces of art were placed and specified throughout the Tower Subscribe Us! https://goo.gl/KKvejk Watch Our All Videos https://goo.gl/hXRSU6 Like Us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/storieshubonline

From a shy civil engineering student to a (short-term) resident of Yass and a long-time scholar of all things Bradfield, meet Rodd Staples. The program director of Sydney Metro – Australia’s biggest public transport project – gives an insight into the life of an engineer in the 2017 Roderick Distinguished Lecture at the University of Sydney. Inspired by his grandfather Walter Hayward Staples – who worked on the Sydney Harbour Bridge – and by Dr JJC Bradfield, the world-renowned engineer who built the Coathanger, Rodd delivers a big-picture outlook at engineering as a career in the 21st century. Rodd outlines his plans for the “keyhole surgery” construction method in the delivery of Sydney Metro through the centre of Australia’s biggest city – in contrast to Bradfield’s open heart surgery of a century ago. While he’s now responsible for the delivery of the biggest urban rail infrastructure project in Australian history, Rodd weaves his way through the highs and lows of a three-decade career in civil engineering – from delivering Sydney’s new world-class metro system to how he felt when two years’ worth of work disappeared in a heartbeat when a global railway operator figured out Canberra was … well … Canberra. With thanks to the University of Sydney’s Faculty of Engineering and IT.
