You saw in Section 2.3 that the prongs of the tuning fork vibrate cyclically. You also learned that a cycle of the prongs' vibration is a complete sequence of motion up to the point at which the motion starts to repeat itself. Another term for this repetitive kind of motion is periodic motion. The t

Having enjoyed political independence until 1707, the survival of many of Scotland's institutions â€“ notably its systems of law, religion and education â€“ after Union with England contributed to the preservation of its singular identity. The different way in which Scotland began to be incorporated into the UK, through monarchical ascent (of James I of Scotland to the English throne) rather than by conquest (as was the case in Wales and Ireland), may account for the lesser impact the develo

We saw above that the vector 2v can be regarded as the vector v â€˜followed byâ€™ the vector v; we can also quite naturally describe this vector as being the â€˜sumâ€™, v + v, of the vector with itself.

Analogously, if p is the vector 2 cm E and q is the vector 3 cm NE, we can think of the â€˜sumâ€™ p + q of the vectors as follows. Starting from a given point, O say, draw the vector p; starting from its finishi

Orphan Works 2: Defining a Good-Faith "Reasonably Diligent Search" Standard
In its 2006 Report, the Copyright Office recommended that Congress amend the Copyright Act to limit the remedies available against good faith users of orphan works after the user performed a generally "reasonably diligent search" to locate the owner of that work. The 2008 bills set forth certain baseline requirements such as searching the Office's online records, and would have required users to consult best practices applicable to the work at issue. Both copyright owners and users would have pa

There is much more to living in polar regions than insulation against the cold. Food may be very scattered both in space and in time and breeding must be tightly synchronized to seasons and food availability. Some of the most spectacular examples of natural obesity and efficient regulation of appetite are found among polar animals. The study of such species not only demonstrates that it is possible to remain healthy and active when very obese and during prolonged fasting, it also helps us to

Academic research on student engagement - lost formulae to inspiring students
This paper shows academic tutors take on a multitude of roles in their current positions at university and while teaching is expected, from most, it is often assumed that the tutor will apply appropriate pedagogical tools to convey knowledge to the students. This view is now being challenged as many students are being actively encouraged to voice their views of the teaching and learning experience this paper shows
