Good Presentations: Characteristics
Good Presentations: Characteristics. Part of the series: Physical Delivery for Good Presentations. For good presentations, presenters are natural, passionate and easy to relate to. Learn characteristics of good presentations with tips from a teacher, presenter and facilitator. (01:57)
Ciencia del color
La ciencia del color es una materia interdisciplinar, que se nutre de fundamentos físico-químicos y psicológicos de la interacción luz-materia-ojo, para aplicarlo en teorías y técnicas que sirven para diseñar, fabricar y medir objetos coloreados. La asignatura sirve para fomentar y capacitar al estudiante en la implementación de los conocimientos asimilados previamente en la definición y resolución de problemas reales relacionados con el control del color en numerosos sectores industri
Pirates Amongst Us
A disgruntled pirate's haunted history lingers in the town where his shipmates met the hangman. Carson Hudson and Willie Balderson team up for "Pirates Amongst Us."Author(s):
Geometric Searching In Extended CSG Models : Application to Solid Modeling and Viewing
In this paper, the CSG representation scheme is augmented with the 'cartesian product.' The sweep method of generating solids is encompassed by this 'Extended CSG' formalism. The point inclusion problem encountered in the area of geometric searching in computational geometry is discussed in the context to solid models represented by 'extended CSG.' A simple algorithm to solve it that has a time complexity O(n), where n is the number of primitives, is presented. Allowing for preprocessing and ext
The Changing Geographic Distribution of Malaria with Global Climate Warming
In this exercise, students analyze climate data to find areas in the southern United States that are now close to having conditions in which the malaria parasite and its mosquito hosts thrive. Then they attempt to forecast when areas might become climatically suitable. Learning goals, context for use, teaching tips, materials, assessment tips and related resources are provided.
Winter Field Lab: Pond Hydrology
This field activity may be implemented during late winter or early spring when things have not quite thawed. From a frozen pond, students collect bathymetric data, measure water temperature and conductivity, locate ground-water inputs, and extract a sediment core. Back in the lab, they make hand and computer-contoured bathymetric maps, temperature and conductivity cross-sections, and run visual-core log, loss-on-ignition, and magnetic susceptibility tests. Then they draw conclusions about water
Norman Borlaug: 60 Years of Fighting Hunger
Norman E. Borlaug was awarded the 1970 Nobel Peace Prize for developing methods to help the world's poorest nations feed themselves. Born of Norwegian descent, Dr. Borlaug was raised near Cresco, a small farming community in northeast Iowa. He earned a B.S. in forestry and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in plant pathology from the University of Minnesota. From 1942 to 1944, Dr. Borlaug worked as a microbiologist for E.I. Dupont de Nemours Foundation, in charge of research on industrial and agricultural
Fundamentals of Die Casting Design
This book describes the fundamentals of design of the die casting process and die mold/runner. It is intended for people who have at least some knowledge of the basics of fundamental science, such calculus, physics etc. This book will benefit the die casting engineer (the project and process engineers) as well as managers and anyone else who deals with the die casting operations will find this information useful.
Optical Tweezers and Applications
Did you ever imagine that you can use light to move a microscopic plastic bead? Explore the forces on the bead or slow time to see the interaction with the laser's electric field. Use the optical tweezers to manipulate a single strand of DNA and explore the physics of tiny molecular motors. Can you get the DNA completely straight or stop the molecular motor?
PSU/SL Physics Animations Portal
This web site contains a large collection of animations illustrating basic concepts in Physics and Astronomy. It covers topics in Astronomy, Mechanics, Vectors, Electricity and Magnetism, Optics, Waves, and Modern Physics at both introductory and an advanced undergraduate level. Users can browse by topic or search for relevant animations. Animations can be viewed in a number of different formats, either embedded in a web page or through the downloaded media file.
Energy Workshop: Energy 101
Introduces the basics of energy from how we measure it, to how it is regulated and priced, to how you can engage in exciting new opportunities for energy efficiency, green architecture, and renewable energy. Recorded in May 2008 by Penn State University for the Local Development Districts of Pennsylvania's Energy Partnership, in Milton, PA.
Freshman Organic Chemistry I
This is the first semester in a two-semester introductory course focused on current theories of structure and mechanism in organic chemistry, their historical development, and their basis in experimental observation. The course is open to freshmen with excellent preparation in chemistry and physics, and it aims to develop both taste for original science and intellectual skills necessary for creative research.
Huntington Archive of Buddhist and Related Art
This site contains nearly 300,000 slides and photos of Asian art and architecture. Materials are predominantly Buddhist but include Hindu, Jain, Islamic, and other works (dating back to 2500 BC). This archive is the most comprehensive collection of its kind. It includes the largest photo archive of Nepali art and architecture in the world and represents the only formal collection that photographically records Nepali's artistic heritage.
Nuclear Warfare, Spring 2008
Nuclear Warfare (PHYS20061) is offered by the Physics Department as an introductory course for non-science majors. The course provides an overview of a broad range of topics regarding nuclear weapons. Although the emphasis is on nuclear weapons, we will consider other weapons of mass destruction, particularly in the context of the threat due to terrorism and rogue states. The goal is to be informed of the background history and technical issues so as to know how best to deal with them in the fu
