2.1 Introducing Classical studies

It's time to get a little closer to our topic: the Classical world. We will start off with an activity in the format used throughout the course A219 Exploring the Classical World, from which this unit is derived.

Although some of what is noted in the attached video footage is only dealt with in detail within the original course, viewing it should prepare you for your work in this unit. It should also whet your appetite for further studies in this fascinating area!

7.7 Radiation detection

In astronomy we detect the radiation from large numbers of electrons, rather than being able to distinguish the contributions of individual electrons. The electrons will have a range of velocities and of orientations with respect to the magnetic field, so the synchrotron spectrum we observe will be the sum of lots of individual spectra with varying values of Author(s): The Open University

An environmental perspective on digital fabrication in architecture and construction
Digital fabrication processes and technologies are becom- ing an essential part of the modern product manufacturing. As the use of 3D printing grows, potential applications into large scale processes are emerging. The combined methods of computational design and robotic fabrication have demonstrated potential to expand architectur- al design. However, factors such as material use, energy demands, du- rability, GHG emissions and waste production must be recognized as the priorities over the entir

1.1.1 About the course

This course teaches on drawing and interpreting graphs. It has eight sections, each dealing between them with 4 different types of graph. You will need to draw some graphs, so make sure you have a flat surface to work on. You will also need to have centimetre graph paper and your calculator to hand as you study the material.

Section 3 is based on a video band, ‘Single-track minders’. This is split into four separate viewing sessions, each followed by an activity. You should expect

3.8 Summary of Part B

In Part B you learned more about the ECHR and the procedures of the ECtHR and how protocols have been used to ensure that the ECHR remains a living instrument. Part B also explored the new challenges created by the rapid expansion of HCPs at the end of the last century and the proposals for reform of the ECtHR.

3.4.1 Overruling

Overruling is the procedure whereby a court higher up in the hierarchy sets aside a legal ruling established in a previous case.

It is strange that, within the system of stare decisis, precedents gain increased authority with the passage of time. As a consequence, courts tend to be reluctant to overrule longstanding authorities even though they may no longer accurately reflect contemporary practices or morals. While old principles are not usually good in dentistry or computer sci

2.2 Evaporation

At an interface with the atmosphere, water changes its state from a liquid to a vapour in response to an increase in temperature caused by an external heat source. This temperature change is normally the result of solar radiation. The transfer of moisture into the air is called evaporation. The process is also controlled by the relative humidity, or level of vapour saturation, of the air. The greater the relative humidity of the air, the less likely it is that evaporation will take place for

7.1 The advantages of reuseability

Reuse is the process of building new software from existing software assets, rather than starting from scratch. Reuse is an important factor in building flexible products that can be changed quickly in response to changes in requirements.

One of the advantages claimed of object technology is that it encourages a disciplined approach that facilitates reuse. Encapsulation encourages better designs that can be reused in a more reliable way, as there is exact knowledge of which oper

1.8.10 A mathematician’s journey: building a model

She estimates she will drive for about two hours at an average speed of about 85 kilometres per hour and then stop for a break for about 30 minutes. She then intends to continue her journey to arrive finally in Newcastle around 3.30 pm. Alice also needs Bob’s estimates. He reckons to drive for about 2.5 hours to cover 170 kilometres, stop for about 30 minutes and then press on for Nottingham to get there at about 5 pm.
