The Digestive Systems
The Digestive Systems The digestive systems works on nutrients taken from the environment, breaking them down into simpler products, and then absorbing the products together with water and salts so they can be used in metabolism. The individuals of all species contain many different protiens or carbohydrates in the cell walls of bacteria, chitin in the external skeletons of arthropods, and so on and foreign proteins or carbohydrates are rarely incorporated unchanged. They are usually first broke
ATTACKS ON THE INSANITY DEFENSE
ATTACKS ON THE INSANITY DEFENSE The insanity defense refers to that branch of the concept of insanity which defines the extent to which men accused of crimes may be relieved of criminal responsibility by virtue of mental disease. The terms of such a defense are to be found in the instructions presented by the trial judge to the jury at the close of a case. These instructions can be drawn from any of several rules used in the determination of mental illness. The final determination of mental illn
Top Drives
Top Drives April 2, 2013 Lance Lee Top Drives The Top Drive Drilling System is recognized as one of the most significant advancements in drilling technology since the introduction of the rotary table. When comparing them to regular drilling rigs, Top Drive Systems consistently drill faster and safer, with less chance of drill pipes being stuck. Top Drives also allow operators to reach areas and types of formations that would not be accessible with conventional rotary drilling. Horizontal drillin
Archimedes’ Principle
Archimedes’ Principle Physics 202 Professor Lee Carkner Lecture 2 PAL #1 Fluids Column of water to produce 1 atm of pressure P = rgh P = r = 1000 kg/m3 g = 9.8 m/s2 h = P/rg = Double diameter, pressure does not change On Mars pressure would decrease Mars has smaller value of g Archimedes’ Principle What happens if you put an object in a fluid? Called the buoyant force If you measure the buoyant force and the weight of the displaced fluid, you find: An object in a fluid is supported by a buoyant
The Asian Tigers
The Asian Tigers The “Asian Tigers” arrival into the world economy has been extraordinary. Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand have experienced dramatic changes over the past 20 years. Their economies have fundamentally changed from traditional agriculturally based societies to rapidly growing newly industrialized nations. Their incredible rates of growth were accompanied by significant structural changes. While most of the change has been positive, from time to

Stage 2: Human BiologySummative Practical: Pepsin Background Information: What are enzymes and how they work?Enzymes are necessary proteins that are crucial in the maintenance and activity of life. CITATION Amaed l 1033 (Inc, Undated). Enzymes increase the rate of a chemical reaction without itself undergoing any permanent chemical change. All chemical reactions that occur within a living organism rely on the catalytic actions of enzymes, which is why enzymes are called Biotransformation. Curre
Nitrogen
Nitrogen Nitrogen, symbol N, gaseous element that makes up the largest portion of the earth's atmosphere. The atomic number of nitrogen is 7. Nitrogen is in group 15 (or Va) of the periodic table. Nitrogen was discovered by the British physician Daniel Rutherford in 1772 and recognized as an elemental gas by the French chemist, Antoine Laurent Lavoiser about 1776. Nitrogen is a colorless, odorless tasteless, nontoxic gas. It can be condensed into a colorless liquid, which can be compressed into

Blood Pressure The A ffects of Physical Activity o
Blood Pressure The A ffects of Physical Activity on Blood Pressure Introduction The heart is a muscle that pumps blood into the body ' s organs and tissues. Blood is pumped out of the left side of the heart into the arteries - the blood vessels that carry the blood ' s oxygen and nutrients to your body. As the blood pumps out of the heart and into the arteries, it pushes against the artery walls. Blood pressure is the measurement of the pressure of the blood in the artery. Blood pressure measure
