Greatest Discoveries: The Beginning of Anesthesia
Anesthesia has allowed surgeries to be completely painless for the patient. Who actually discovered it, however, is up for debate. By the 1840's, several individuals were on the trail of finding a more affective anesthetic.  Two dentists from Boston, and a doctor from Georgia were all experimenting with two drugs, laughing gas, and ether.  All three doctors claim to be the one who actually discovered anesthesia.  (02:38); narrated by Bill Nye, the Science Guy

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

1.5 Rounding to decimal places

Sometimes the result of a calculation gives a number with lots of decimal places - far more than you need or could reliably measure. For instance, suppose a patient is required to receive 5 ml of medicine a day, evenly spaced in three injections. How much medicine should they be given in each dose?

To divide the 5 ml of medicine into three equal parts would mean measuring out 5 ÷ 3 = 1.6666 ml (where the 6s keep repeating, or recurring indefinitely). It's not realistic or feasib

The two physical units of measurement that you will probably come across most often in your workplace concern volumes of liquids and weight measurements. It's important to get a feeling for what various factors of ten look like, so that you can spot when there seems to be a mistake in a value that you've calculated or have been given by someone else.
