The uniform motion of a particle is such a simple form of motion that apart from enquiring about the particle's velocity, the only other kinematic question you can ask is 'where was the particle at some particular time?' The most common way of answering this question is to specify the initial position of the particle, that is, its position at time t = 0 s.

Although it is common to refer to the position at t = 0 as the 'initial position' it is also possible, and some

Whatever resource you choose to use to find information on the internet, many of the same principles apply. Each source that you use will probably look quite different from the one you tried before, but you'll notice that there are always features that are similar â€“ a box to type your search terms in, for instance, or a clickable help button. Different resources refer to the same functions using different terminology, but the principles behind them are exactly the same. The trick is to chec

One of the roles of a leader is to provide group members with feedback on their performance. This is often an uncomfortable process for both the leader and the recipient. The main reason for this is a failure by both parties adequately to distinguish between the individual and what is being evaluated. When criticism is carelessly given, it is easy for the recipient to take it as an attack on his or her self-esteem. The result is that the recipient resists the feedback and responds in a defens

This course focuses on the creation of a semiconductor transistor â€“ a versatile tiny transistor that is now at the heart of the electronics industry. In video clips the history of the incredible shrinking chip, its Scottish connections and an explanation of the physics that make chips work are accompanied by a reconstruction of the making of a transistor using the crude techniques of yesteryear.

In this course we follow two Scottish computer engineers with little or no physics knowled

Initiation is the mechanism which starts the polymerization process. Vinyl monomers are quite easily polymerized by a variety of activating methods. Styrene, for example, can be converted to solid polymer simply by heating, and ultraviolet light can have exactly the same effect. Usually, however, an activating agent is used. This is an unstable chemical which produces active species that attack the monomer. A good example is benzoyl peroxide which splits up when heated:

Jupiter's visibly flattened shape is a result of the planet's rapid rotation. The flattening is not really apparent in Figure 9.1, because the terminator (the day-night boundary) is within the left-hand edge of the visible half of the globe. The flattened shape is better seen in Author(s): The Open University

Common sense is a complex and contested phenomenon. The practice of systematic scepticism is a key aspect of social science, particularly in the analysis of common sense and the consideration of the social construction of social problems. Social constructionism emphasises the importance of social expectations in the analysis of taken-for-granted and apparently natural social processes. It starts by exploring the assumptions associated with the naming or labelling of things. It is sceptical ab

Folate is a generic name for a group of related compounds. The name â€˜folateâ€™ was based on the word â€˜foliageâ€™, after it was identified in a crude extract from spinach, though it is also found in liver, other green vegetables, oranges and potatoes and it is often added to breakfast cereals (usually listed as folic acid). Folate is less sensitive to heat than many of the B vitamins, though it is destroyed if food is reheated or kept hot for long periods. Folate is involved in amino acid
