Speed of Sound - Lab Report Example Sound is regularly a vital part of our whole encompassing and has incredible importance in our day by day life. By and large, stable is a type of vitality that is significantly created and proliferated through the longitudinal waves. They can likewise be named as being flexible waves that requires a vehicle for transmission. The other certainty is that, sound can't be transmitted through a vacuum. It fundamentally goes in fluids, solids and gases. The pace of speed of sound fluctuates from one medium to the next. For example, it is higher in solids when contrasted with fluids and gases separately (SpinART, 2002). Sound can be named being either melodic, clamor, shrill, among different classes. In the attempted lab test, the speed of sound was estimated utilizing a strategy that is alluded to as the KundtÃ¢â¬â¢s tube method. This was discovered by permitting the sound to go through a given metal pole, to decide its recurrence just as the speed. Sound is regularly proliferated by longitudinal waves. These are waves whereby the particles development comprises of different motions forward and backward inside the course and size of proliferation. Inside a metal bar, sound can either be transmitted by transverse or longitudinal waves. In this lab test, longitudinal waves were created in an air section and a metal pole. The sound recurrence was then controlled by utilization of wave movement idea. In this extreme condition, f is taken as the recurrence whileÃ¢ lÃ¢ is the frequency. At the point when the pole set into vibration through appropriate stroking, the standing waves are consequently created inside the vibrating bar. Because of the clipping of the pole at its mid-point, the clasped point is taken as a hub with zero plentifulness, though the closures that vibrates are taken as antinodes with greatest amplitudes. Vibration of the pole in such a way implies, that its frequency and basic recurrence are double the pole length (SpinART, 2002). In the wake of gathering

Hungering for Grass and Leaves Books About Nature and Wildness Itâs that time of winter (or winterish spring) when Iâm nature-hungry. Chicago usually has harsh winters; going outside is not pleasant from November to March or even into April. Sometimes Iâll have that moment that makes me really yearn for those temperate months. Iâll smell dirt or see a patch of green (but very dead) grass that reminds me of picnics in the park and happy walks in the blossoming world. I miss birds twittering away in trees and fat bunnies on all the green spaces. To tide myself over, I read nature and animal books to help get me through this gray cold time. Were facing snow here tonight in Chicago as I type this. Below are some books about peopleâs contemplation and relationship with animals and nature. Some of the books about nature in particular feature very unusual takes on our relationship to the animals around us. A few authors focus on the thrill and danger of the African bush with elephants and other megafauna. The Elephant Whisperer/Babylonâs Ark/The Last Rhino by Lawrence Anthony, Graham Spence The Elephant Whisperer is the story of South African Lawrence Anthony rehabilitating very traumatized elephants. It starts with a phone call offering up a group of elephants to him. If he didnât take them, they would all be shot. And thus begins the painful and beautiful story of his relationship with a herd of elephants. Babylonâs Arc, though written first, is Anthonyâs struggle to rehabilitate the Baghdad Zoo after the most recent Iraq war. Itâs an incredible reminder about the cost of war on everyone and everything around us. The last book is his work to try to save the rhinos in war-torn Congo. It ends up being an interesting look at the infamous Lordâs Resistance Army settled in part of the Rhino territory. I highly recommend reading these books in order. Wildness: Relations of People and Place edited by Gavin van Horn and John Hausdoerffer; City Creatures edited by Gavin van Horn, edited by Dave Aftandilian Wildness is a collection of essays about humans and our relationship to nature. What is the meaning of âwildâ in the U.S.? In Enrique Salmonâs âNo Word,â he discusses how there is no word for wild in his native language of RarÃ¡muri. Thereâs no setting aside the world of human and the world of the wild. Itâs a beautiful essay about the importance of how language divides and separates us. We are part of nature and nature is part of us. In Mistingutte Smithâs essay âWild Black Margins,â she discusses the intersection between African Americans and land. She talks about what is perceived as wilderness and the complicated story of land in the U.S. City Creatures is another collection of essays that focuses on animals in urban environments. There are beautiful essays, photos, and comics about the animals that live amongst us. Full disclosure: I have published articles at the City Creatures blog for the Center for Humans and Nature. But it was the exhibition and book of City Creatures that drew me to the Center and Van Horns work. Wild Ones: A Sometimes Dismaying, Weirdly Reassuring Story About Looking at People Looking at Animals in America by Jon Mooallem This book is one of my favorite books about nature. Mooallem focuses on three speciesâ"the polar bear, Langeâs metalmark butterfly, the whooping craneâ"to explore the U.S.âs changing perception of animals and humans. I didnât know much about the origins of conservation in the U.S. The title is apt; the stories go from hilarious to tragic. One that sticks in my mind is about a scientist who lived with a whooping crane, a very endangered species. She had been raised by humans and had imprinted. In order to artificially inseminate her, one scientist lived with her and did bird things, like digging for bugs and nesting. When they did a mating dance, his assistants would rush in and inseminate her. After a few miscarries, she finally laid an egg. During the time, he was waiting to talk on the Lettermen show when he realized that he was about to be skewered for this experiment. But then he got a phone call saying that a coyote had broken into the habitat and killed both the crane a nd her offspring. H is for Hawk by Helen MacDonald This memoir details Helen MacDonaldâs experience training Mabel, her Goshawk, as a way to deal with the sudden death of her father. While she discusses the particulars about training a hawk, itâs a very psychological book, looking at the issue of death and grief. She talks a lot about the author T.H. Whites chronicle The Goshawk where he details his attempt to train a goshawk and focuses on the authorâs own complicated life. It won the 2014 Costa Book of the Year. Whatever You Do, Dont Run: True Tales Of A Botswana Safari Guide by Peter Allison In comparison to the other books, this book is a breeze. It details Peter Allisonâs misadventures with elephants, water buffalos, and crocodiles while working as a safari guide. Most of his stories leave you wondering how he lived to tell the tale or how he stayed employed. The Urban Birder by David Lindo This book is about the birding life of David Lindo. His philosophy is simple: look up. He advocates for birding in the most unexpected areas: green spaces in the middle of the city. You never know what will happen. In addition to this wonderful philosophy, he talks about how he got his start as a birder and his experiences of being the son of Jamaican immigrants in England. Truly a book for aspiring birders. Unseen City: The Majesty of Pigeons, the Discreet Charm of Snails Other Wonders of the Urban Wilderness by Nathanael Johnson This was one of my favorite books of 2016. The inspiration for the book comes from Johnsonâs tiny daughter who asks him questions about the nature he sees on their walks. So he writes the book, dedicating each chapter to an organism like pigeons, ginkgo balboa trees, and more. The pigeon chapter I thought was rather enlightening. Two words: pigeon milk. ?? Last Chance to See by Douglas Adams and Mark Carwardine Oh Douglas Adams, how I love you so. This nonfiction book is about Adams and zoologist Carwardine traveling across the world to seek out endangered creatures. They look for the Yangtze river dolphin, the kakapo in New Zealand, the Komodo dragon on a Indonesian island, and much more. It ranges from funny to sad with all the wit of Douglas Adams at the helm. Youâll fall in love with the ridiculous kakapo just like Adams. Also twenty years later (and after the too-early death of Adams), Stephen Fry and Caradwine do a TV series to revisit some of the creatures. Again, funny and depressing all the same time. Being a Beast by Charles Foster This has to be one of the strangest books Iâve read in a long time. It was mentioned in a This American Life episode in 2016 but itâs even weirder than the segment goes. Foster wants to really understand what it is like to be an animal. So he decides heâs going to try living and experiencing the world as five different animals: badger, otter, red deer, swallow, and urban fox. He talks about living in a hole with his son as they pretend to be badgers. Or hiding in the bushes in London to understand how a fox saw the world. Or he asked a friend with hunting dogs to have them chase him in the woods to see how far he could get. The books sometimes go places I didnât expect but itâs certainly a unique read. I hope you enjoy these books about nature to help you get through the last few months of winter. Want more books about nature?

Sex, gender, and sexuality are words that are constantly are been not understood properly and also misused by societies. But scholars through research and history have come up with basic ways to distinguish what each term means. Starting with the term sex, sex is known as a biological structure of a person (Renzetti 2). There also is another way that sex defined, some believe that the definition of is the meaning the society and each individual gave it, Ã¢â¬Å"or the various ways we express our sexual naturesÃ¢â¬ (Hoffert 395). Next the term gender can be distinguished because it uses the term sex as a source for creating a social grouping which then is applied to each individual (Renzetti 2). Using these definitions scholars are able to distinguish between these terms, but definitions alone might not be enough for some scholars to distinguish the differences between these terms, so there are some key ways to tell the differences. Starting with sex and gender, one s sex is static, but their gender can be dynamic. Gender is part of everyday life meaning everyone has to watch what they do in public and even at home, the society has an expectation of how men and women are supposed to behave or act and if the expectations are not achieved then that person is considered strange or abnormal (Lorber 54-55).

Given a particular situation, recognize the period of history portrayed following the inquiry period. Ã 2. We will write a custom essay sample on Lesson Plan for Social Studies Class Grades 9-12 or any similar topic only for you Order Now Ã Given a particular scenario, distinguish groups after the inquiry period. Ã 3.Ã Study and come into contact with changeable emotions of every group. Ã 4.Ã Examine and differentiate the differences in the lifestyle of every group. Ã 5.Ã Assume/imagine and identify with what life was like for Americans during that period. Rationale Hardly any event in mankind can measure up to the damage and destruction of war.Ã However, nearly every generation of man cannot break away from its ongoing reality. Our country has also had its won share of experiences of war. Ever since our origin, with the American Revolutionary War, our country has already been at war.Ã In addition, in our 200 plus years of survival there was one war that cannot be matched up to to any other war when measured in terms of devastation and American loss of lives Ã¢â¬â the American Civil War.Ã Just like any civil war there is no winner- just a loser, as losses on both sides make up the entire loss of that nation.Ã This lesson will try to look at the changes that occurred in the lives of Americans that were the outcome of this catastrophic war. Therefore, the rationale of this inquiry lesson is to provide students an affective encounter of the pre and post American Civil War incident on Americans- both Whites and Blacks (or northerners and southerners).

Materials Masking tape, pen markers, chart paper/chalk board, newspapers, 5 packages saltines/crackers, and 3 paper plates. Assessment At the end of the activity, ask the students the following questions to assess their feelings and reactions about the activity: 1.Ã Ã What can you say about this activity? Did you like it? If yes, why? If no, why not? 2.Ã How did you feel about being in Group A, B, or C? 3.Ã In your opinion, how did the groups differ from each other? 4.Ã What do you think was the best group to be in?Ã How about the worst group to be in? 5.Ã What primary event in American History did this simulation describe? Answer:Ã The American Civil War. Ã 6.Ã Who do you think did each group stand for? Answer:Ã Group A. represented the Black Slaves Group B symbolized the White Southerners Group C stood for the White Northerners 7.Ã What do you think did the headings in the charts symbolized? Answer:Ã Location (floor or chairs) represented social status Food Alloted (either whole or broken crackers) symbolized economic status Movement (either full or restrained) symbolized political status 8.Ã In your opinion, what did Parts I, II, III stood for? Answer:Ã Part I stood for the Pre Civil War period Part II. represented the Civil War era Ã Part III represented the Post Civil War period 9.Ã Consistent with the headings of the charts and what they symbolized, what can you say or notice about every group? Example:Ã Compared to Groups B C, Group A was instructed to sit on the floorÃ Ã Ã symbolizing a lower social status, they also had to eat broken crackers representing a lower economic status, and were just limited to move in a particular area. Thus, Group A stood for the Black Slaves of the South.Ã The, take note of the change in GroupÃ¢â¬â¢s A status from Part I to Part III depicting the changes from the Pre to the Post Civil War period. Meanwhile, for Group B, in Part I, they were instructed to sit on chairs and eat whole crackers and also to move freely. Hence, it can be said that these activities symbolized good, economic, social, and political status.Ã Nevertheless, in Part II they had be restricted to move outside of Area I since battle lines were established between the North and South. .Moreover, the South survived extreme devastation and destruction since most of the war happened there.Ã This was represented when half of the group was pulled out and placed into a neutral area.Ã Then, in Part III, social and political status were recovered as movement was not restricted and chairs were utilized.Ã But their economic status turned negative, as symbolized by broken crackers because it experienced devastation and destruction of its factories and cities.Ã Moreover, due to the closure of plantations and freedom of slaves, agriculture transformed and changed drastically. Then for Group C, all throughout the three parts (I, II, III), they enjoyed good economic, political, and social status since the war happened on southern soil thus the northern property was not destroyed.

Question: Explain Applied Ethics and Sustainability. Answer: Introduction: Although the privately owned companies work with the ulterior objective of profit maximization, they are always liable to the public to abide by certain rules of the society and ethical codes of conduct. As the eminent economist, Friedman, has already stated, that the private companies can adopt any strategy in order to enhance their profit level, but at the same time they must never compromise with the quality of the goods sold, nor can they spoil the ecological balance by dumping of wastes. Hence, business ethics should be adopted by an organization, so that it does not affect the ecological balance, or the socio-economic well-being of the world (Newton et al. 2014). Figure 1: The Three Pillars of Sustainability Pollution of the Global Commons and Sustainability: Ecological sustainability is a matter of great importance in todays world. Ecological balance implies an environmental condition, where the environment is full of diversity and productivity, and the ecosystem, with its sea, rivers, land , or climate does not pose any threat to the future sustainability of mankind. However, the global commons which include a variety of objects in the environment, starting with land, rivers, ponds, ecological animals, to valleys, and glaciers, have fallen prey to the tragedy of commons, in the words of Hardin. With the rapid growth of industries and technological advancement, the land, river, air are all contaminated at the same time, ultimately resulting in climatic aberrations such as Global Warming, Acid Rain, and depletion of the ozone layer of the atmosphere (McCormic et al. 2013). Industries as well as vehicles discharge extremely harmful and poisonous gases such as Nitrogen Oxide, Carbon Di Oxide , Sulphur Di oxide, Carbon Monoxide, etc. which c an not only lead to diseases such as Asthma and infertility, but birth defects among the humans (Vogler et al. 2014). Animals are equally affected by air pollution, as they consume high amount of toxins, while feeding on plants, which are contaminated, by toxins such as Mercury. Besides, the use of pesticides in the agricultural fields often run off and mix with the water, or the untreated sewage and industrial wastes are most carelessly dumped into the water bodies, which contaminates oceans, rivers and lakes. Apart from affecting humans, it directly harms the ecological sustainability by harming marine animals such as fishes. Littering the plastics products and polystyrene, carelessly in the environment, can also threat the question of sustainability as many animals, and birds may unknowingly consume these products, and hence this may block their intestine, resulting their death by either starvation or malnutrition. However, environmental balance is an important issue, as it provi des humankind with the basic resources to survive in the future. Hence, for retaining ecological sustainability, much steps are being taken. For example, the Environment Protection Agency, has already set up regulations, related to setting up a limit for an industry for the highest amount of emission per day, to charging factories in case the limit exceeds. Further, the EPA, has also recently made it mandatory for the automobiles to have pollution control services, such as catalytic contractors (Leslie et al. 2015). Most Significant Ethical Issues Concerning the Pollution of Global Commons: While speaking of environmental ethics, two important issues are to be dealt with- one being the relation between Man and Nature, and the second one is the relation between Man and Man. The question of preserving environmental sustainability becomes primarily important, solely because the environment is a stakeholder, and ultimate provider of life to all creatures on the planet. Further, the loss of biodiversity, the change in climate, or melting of glaciers, has an extremely negative and disastrous effect on humankind. The human life, itself is dependent on the natural resources, such as fresh air, healthy plants and drinking water, clean land, etc., and failing to preserve these resources in future, will threat the survival and sustainability of future generations. In the year of 1968, Hardin has already pointed out, how the global commons are being overused and exploited so much, that by the present time, there is a huge shortage of natural resources, and a shocking absence of a h ealthy ecosystem (Edenhofer et al. 2014). Recently, Climate Science is an emerging concept, which unveils the terrible fact, as to how the climate has disastrously been affected owing to reckless human activity through the process of industrialization. As the graph below suggests, over the years from the 19th century to the 20th century, there has been a remarkable soaring of temperature (Brown et al. 2013). Figure 2: Graph Showing the Rise in Global Temperature over the Years Because of the emission of harmful gases, such as CFC, Methane, Nitrous Oxide, the Ozone layer is depleted, which acts as the protector of Earth from the intense heat of the Sun. Consequently, the heat penetrates the atmosphere directly and increases the global temperature. Further, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration research, the year 2015 in fact was the warmest year, showing a huge rise in the annual temperature of the earth, and a melting of several glaciers across the world. Keeping into consideration, the huge instances disrupting ecological balance, it has become important to control the ill effects of pollution, by influencing the ethical attitude of human beings. Nowadays, people are being made more aware of the possible danger caused by environmental degradation, by making the study of EVS a mandate in school and college levels. The study of the subject from childhood helps in shaping the moral duty of the individual student towards the preserv ation of the ecological balance of the world. Apart from the Environment Day, celebrated on 5th June, countries like Australia celebrate School Tree Day, where the children are encouraged to actively participate in the process of environmental conservation. Environmental ethics as a new branch of study, focuses on two important questions: What should be the role of an individual to protect and conserve the environment? What steps and regulations should the government introduce to limit the process of reckless exploitation of natural resources? (Attfield et al. 2014) Already, the companies and the industries have to follow the environmental standards, that are being set up by the EPA authority. Some companies, due for emitting excessive amount of polluting gases, have installed machines for reduction of environmental pollution. It should be remembered that the present generation should never overuse the natural resources so much that they become unavailable or exhausted in future. Similarly, killing animal species, leading to their extinction, destruction of forests, can threaten the possibility of human survival in future. Besides, the Environmental Justice Movement of North Carolina stated that impoverished people are more likely to suffer from the pollution of Global Commons, and hence strict measures should be taken to protect their interests as well (Riordan 2014). Pollution of Global Commons and Business: Private companies are usually so much driven by their profit-seeking motives, that tey usually disregard the importance of sustaining the environment and preserving the ecological balance. A business organization, not only exploits and overuses the natural resources, but at the same time, disposes the remnants of their wastes, after use, resulting in the destruction of ecological sustainability. A business transaction may harm an entire species or a race, by contaminating the environment. For example, the industrial wastes discharged by the industries and factories, are dumped into the water, which contain toxins that can kill marine plants as well as fishes who feed on them. Because of this whole process, the anglers section of the society gets adversely affected (Downing et al. 2013). No matter, how much an industry leads to the economic development of a nation, it emits harmful gases, such as SO2, NOX, which not only leads to diseases, but also has adverse effects such as climate change, Global warming, increasing desertification problem, etc. Besides, when an industry transforms a raw material into a final product, it does so, by utilizing resources from nature, and overuse of resources, especially the non-renewable ones will lead to exhaustion. In order to continue the same growth of production in future, the industries must utilize the principle of 3Rs, which consist of reusing, remanufacturing and recycling the same product. This helps in preserving the natural resource, and prevents the possibility of environmental pollution through discharge of waste products and industrial wastes. A group of eminent scientists in the year of 2008, headed by Pavan Sukhdev, revealed that the total amount of environmental damage caused by the industries alone, sums up to a wh opping amount of $2.2 Trillion every year. If this kind of pollution is not controlled now, the future will be doomed. The words of Harlem Brandtland, should not be discarded, that the health of the human beings and that of the ecosystem are inseparable, and deterioration in one, will essentially affect the other (Heutel et al. 2012). Ethical and Sustainable Response to the Pollution of Global Commons: Since the success of a business organization will always depend on the efficient use of natural resources, an ethical attitude to the question of environmental sustainability is needed. Nowadays, with the growing interest among the private companies, in CSR, the private organizations are becoming more responsible in handling the environmental resources through their day-to- day business operations. For example, IT companies such as Cisco, has put enough emphasis on the importance of environmental sustainability. Cisco, in fact has aggressively set up targets before itself to control the total amount of emission, and in fact by the year 2012, it has already achieved two successive missions of reducing total GHG emissions. Starbucks, has also recently shown much interest in the idea of environmental sustainability by using low-flow water valves, and buying cabinetries which are made up mostly from post-industrial wastes. This idea of recycling and reusing, has also been utilized by E-b ay (Hocking et al. 2013). Introducing these CSR based initiatives, the companies can not only contribute to the ecosystem but also gain goodwill amidst the consumers. Besides, apart from the existent policies and regulations, the government of each country should take an active step for protecting the environment against the pollution of Global Commons. For example, the cost-benefit approach can be taken, whereby the government sets a limit for emission of gases, exceeding which the company has to pay tax. This will, to a great extent control the reckless business activities of the large organizations, who harm the environment to raise profits over a short period of time. Besides, the authorities such as EPA, already controls the total amount of pollutants emitted by the factories, and in case of excessive contamination, the companies are directed to install machines, which are energy efficient or can reduce the emission of gases (Zhang et al. 2016). Again, there should be a pricing mechanism system, where the places which have higher amounts of pollution, can impose higher amount of pollution price on the industries, while places with lower risk of pollution, can lower down the pollution tax. The idea of permits was already successful a step in reducing the pollution of the environment. Accordingly, a company will have to buy permits from the government, at higher price, which will beget the company the legal right to pollute the environment. There should be a limited number of permits, and re-selling of permits among the companies should be allowed. Above all, incentives should be provided to the companies, which succeed in reducing pollution. The EPA and other agencies, already offer rewards to such companies, which have voluntarily reduced the environmental pollution. The government, in fact can reward a company, not only through financial means, but also can provide financial assistance to the companies for installing pollution control machines (Vesilind et al. 2013). Conclusion: It is absolutely an unfair and selfish course of action, if the people of the present generation use up the resources and destroy the ecological balance, without thinking of the needs of preserving global commons, for the future generations. Usually people tend to believe that business authorities are obliged only to serve mankind, and non-human creatures are absolutely discarded in the process. Hence, everyone should be educated about the need of maintaining an ethical attitude towards the idea of environmental sustainability (Mckinnon et al. 2013).
