In this module we describe the random demodulator and how it can be used in the application of the theory of compressive sensing to the problem of acquiring a high-bandwidth continuous-time signal.
LC Calc (TM) Online. A handy calculator for HPLC computations.
This site contains several on-line calculators for use in liquid chromatography. These include pressure unit conversion, buffer pH, and scale-up factors. Some links may be broken.
Simple Machines and Modern Day Engineering Analogies
Students apply the mechanical advantages and problem-solving capabilities of six types of simple machines (wedge, wheel and axle, lever, inclined plane, screw, pulley) as they discuss modern structures in the spirit of the engineers and builders of the great pyramids. While learning the steps of the engineering design process, students practice teamwork, creativity and problem solving.
Mix It Up
This lesson plan introduces the properties of mixtures and solutions. A class demonstration gives the students the opportunity to compare and contrast the physical characteristics of a few simple mixtures and solutions. Students discuss the separation of mixtures and solutions back into their original components as well as different engineering applications of mixtures and solutions.
7.5.1 Evaluate information from different sources Be critically aware of the reliability and quality of information from different sources, taking into account factors such as commercial, political, academic or personal interests that may influence selection, content and presentation. How will you judge the quality of the information you find? You may need to question the validity of statistical information and the way data have been chosen. The size of a survey sample, for example, may be insufficient to support claims of general tren

Experiments in Electroanalytical Chemistry
This website offers educators a set of eight classical electroanalytical experiments suitable for use in a quantitative analysis, instrumental analysis, or electrochemistry course. The materials should be useful for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students. Experiments include coulometric, conductometric, and potentiometric titrations, stripping analysis, flow injection analysis, and polarography. It is important to note that several of the experiments use mercury or mercury co
