Just as we may plot the position-time graph or the displacement-time graph of a particular motion, so we may plot a velocity-time graph for that motion. By convention, velocity is plotted on the vertical axis (since velocity is the dependent variable) and time (the independent variable) is plotted on the horizontal axis. In the special case of uniform motion, the velocity-time graph takes a particularly simple form - it is just a horizontal line, i.e. the gradient is zero. Examples are

Les volcans sont responsables de la formation de notre atmosphÃ¨re et des continents, qui sont en quelque sorte l'Ã©cume magmatique de la Terre. Ils sont aussi un prÃ©cieux outil d'Ã©chantillonnage de l'intÃ©rieur de la Terre, et leurs laves portent des informations prÃ©cieuses sur la composition des roches profondes et inaccessibles dont elles sont issues. Il faut enfin voir chaque volcan comme le rÃ©sultat superficiel des mouvements internes de grande ampleur qui affectent notre planÃ¨te d

Images of the Earth
Structure: Three credits. Three lecture hours per week (45 total hours). This is an introduction to the new, rapidly evolving, and interdisciplinary field of Earth System Science. This course emphasizes the ideas of Earth as a planet within the solar system; the interactions among the components of the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere; and global changes. Studying Earth as a system is accomplished by the analysis of remote sensing data. Images acquired by airborne and spaceborn

The listening room, Ikon Gallery, Birmingham : A gallery installation and an offsite project
The three upper galleries of Ikon house two variants of The Listening Room. Each installation amplifies the sound of a gallery in real time, introducing low-volume feedback, pitches delineated by the architectural characteristics of the space and modulated by the transient nature of people passing through. In between is the central gallery, a space where the sound of the two Listening Rooms actively mixes and merges, allowing the two activated spaces to affect each other - in a very real sen
