Some findings indicate that, for moderate loudness levels, humans can detect a frequency change of about 1 to 3 Hz for frequencies up to about 1000 Hz. Figure 37 shows a plot of the smallest frequency difference for which two tones can be discriminated for a number of reference tones. You can see from the figure that up to about 1000 Hz, the D

Energy resources: Solar energy
Energy from sources other than fossil and nuclear fuels is to a large extent free of the concerns about environmental effects and renewability that characterize those two sources. Each alternative source supplies energy continuall, whether or not we use it, and most have their origins in energy generated outside the Earth, yet the potential of each is limited by its total supply set against its rate of use. The Sun will radiate energy until it ceases thermonuclear fusion, in around 5 billion yea

Look at the shapes below. The symmetry of the shape on the left and its relationship to the shape on the right can be thought of in two ways:

• Fold the left-hand shape along the central line. Then one side lies exactly on top of the other, and gives the shape on the right.

• Imagine a mirror placed along the central dotted line. The reflection in the mirror gives the other half of the shape.

Now that we have examined the processes involved in understanding a sentence in some detail, we will turn to the issue of how the brain achieves the task. We will begin with the initial capture and analysis of the speech signal.

The most obvious innovative aspect was that speech was being transmitted, so in principle anyone could use a telephone for communication. The use of the telegraph required skilled operatives. A message had to be translated into the dots and dashes of Morse code and transmitted using a single keypad making and breaking the connection in an electrical circuit. At the other end of the wire another Morse operator translated the received clicks into the words of the message. With the telephone no

In free solution, the rate of an enzyme-catalysed reaction depends on the concentration of the enzyme and the concentration of its substrate. For an enzyme operating at suboptimal concentrations, the reaction is said to be diffusion-limited, since it depends on the random collision of the enzyme and substrate. If we consider a metabolic pathway, the product of one reaction is the substrate for the next enzyme in the pathway. Direct transfer of a metabolite from one enzyme to another wo
