IA DESIGN EXERCISE
“Investigate one factor that affects the rate of water vaporization.”
VARIABLES
Dependent Variable: rate of water vaporization
Independent Variable: amount of water
Controlled Variable: room temperature
Controlled Variable: surface area
Controlled Variable: temperature (100°C)
Controlled Variable: time (seconds)
RESEARCH QUESTION
How does the amount of water affect the rate of water vaporization?
METHOD
List of equipment and materials:
* 500mL beaker
* Bunts & Burner
* Thermometer
Description of how to control and measure the variables:
* Room Temperature: The set room temperature in a room is most likely able to be controlled with the system. Room temperature is usually around 20°C.
* Surface Area: The 500mL beaker is significant because if the surface area of the beaker is larger or smaller, than the results of the experiment will be incorrect due to the different volume of water.
* Temperature (100°C): It is important to acknowledge that the temperature at which water boils is 100°C. This is controlled by how much gas and fire is released from the Bunts & Burner.
* Time (seconds): The time is highly important. Time is controlled by how much gas is released from the Bunts & Burner. The lower the gas, the longer it will take for the water to boil due to low heat.
SCOPE AND LIMIT
The range of your measurements (from x to y) and the size of the increments within this range;
I will vary the temperature between 20°C and 100°C (boiling point) in steps of 10°.
Repeated measurements, average, etc.
I will measure the time for the beaker with different amounts of water each trial time it drops 100mL and then I will find the average time for each trial. Next I will divide the average by 10 to find the average period.
DATA AND PROCESSING
What data are you going to collect? Sketch a relevant table…...

...WALL A wall is a usually solid structure that defines and sometimes protects an area. Most commonly, a wall delineates a building and supports its superstructure, separates space in buildings intorooms, or protects or delineates a space in the open air. There are three principal types of structural walls: building walls, exterior boundary walls, and retaining walls. Building walls have one main purpose: to support roofs and ceilings. Such walls most often have three or more separate components. In today's construction, a building wall will usually have the structural elements (such as 2×4 studs in a house wall), insulation, and finish elements or surface (such as drywall or panelling). In addition, the wall may house various types of electrical wiring or plumbing. Electrical outlets are usually mounted in walls.Building walls frequently become works of art externally and internally, such as when featuring mosaic work or when murals are painted on them; or as design foci when they exhibit textures or painted finishes for effect.On a ship, the walls separating compartments are termed "bulkheads", whilst the thinner walls separating cabins are termed "partitions".In architecture and civil engineering, the term curtain wall refers to the facade of a building which is not load-bearing but functions as decoration, finish, front, face, or history preservation. A partition wall is a wall for the purpose of separating rooms, or dividing a room. Partition walls are usually not...

Battle of Ia Drang

...Battle Analysis: Battle of Ia Drang Valley The “Battle of Ia Drang Valley” took place 14 November through 18 November 1965. The battle was one of the first major battles of the Vietnam War. The battles location took place in South Vietnam where the Drang River flows into Cambodia. (Historynet) Since the Vietnam War had started, this territory had never been occupied because the enemy, People’s Army of Vietnam (PAVN), occupied much of the area. The battle waged on for five days between the United States 1st Cavalry Division and the People’s Army of Vietnam. From a macro level, the United States got involved with the Vietnam War from the fear that communism empires were going to spread throughout South-east Asia. As for the Battle of Ia Drang Valley, American military commanders took the approach that it was solely a search and destroy mission of the enemy. (MilitaryHistory) Each side had slightly different war aims. The United States wanted to fly into a landing zone (LZ) and reconnaissance the area so they could find the People’s Army of Vietnam and destroy enemy elements in South Vietnam. The People’s Army of Vietnam and the Viet Cong wanted to hold onto their territory and stave off the American’s advance into their stronghold. (MilitaryHistory) The operational environment for the Battle of Ia Drang Valley had an overlying impact on how the rest of the Vietnam War was going to be fought. The American’s were going to fly into the Ia Drang Valley with the...

...| | | | | My name goes here RES351 Today’s date Teacher’s name TITLE In 2007 I was an electronics instructor for a powerful international organization. The organizations was always looking for ways to cut costs, and since manpower very expensive the managers wanted to see if they could cut manpower while retaining operational effectiveness. An outside group was hired to examine manning levels in the field, and make recommendations on improving efficiency, while the schoolhouse staff I directed was also tasked with researching how the system was manned, and how planned upgrades would affect manning levels in the future. Initially we used current instructions to determine personnel assignments and divisions of labor during operations to give us a baseline. This was helpful because often these guidelines are based on years of experience by technicians and operators under real-world conditions. Next, we used students who were approaching graduation, but with no actual experience in the field, and had them try to operate the system with reduced manpower without giving them the current instructions. We were hoping that the students would bring a fresh perspective to the problem and find a new way to accomplish the task. Finally, a group of the engineers who design the system upgrades along with seasoned instructors with many years of practical experience operating the equipment in the field ran scenarios and brainstormed new ideas. Our assessment...

...Robert Seitter 04/01/13 TOK IA (Outline) – Chinese Fur Farms Introduction Throughout the years the constant conflict of the Chinese fur farms has been an ongoing controversial issue that spans within a great amount of areas of knowledge. Within the Chinese fur farms animals the main goal of the production process is to make a maximum profit – at the expense of the animals. Organizations such as EU, and the UN have tried to impose policies upon china for the safety of the animals but the Chinese fur farms have yet to treat the animals ethically. Many efforts by global organizations such as PETA have been made to ban fur trading with china but despite that the fur trade with china has only strengthened and become a larger, lucrative powerful monopoly. Period. 8 - Blackmon Areas of Knowledge History Human Sciences Ethics Ways of Knowing Perception Emotion Reasoning Topic A – History (Politics) What political involvement does the U.S. have with the Chinese fur trade?

.... Recommendations To extend the life of Zen bracelets she should implement extension strategies to slow down or prevent the decline of her products and business. One extension strategy Alexa could do would be to introduce a new design of her bracelets to differentiate herself in the market, or introduce new types of jewelry to extend the life of her business. She could produce matching necklaces and earrings to wear along with her Zen bracelets. Using the Boston Consulting Group Matrix tool, we found that Zen bracelets are in the “Dog” category because her bracelets have a low market share and low market growth. Businesses should divest dogs unless the products have secondary benefits, like being a necessary part of a product line that is profitable. However if Alexa was to give her bracelets modern designs incomparable to “Alex & Ani” bracelets, she could extend the life of these bracelets and possibly turn them into question marks or even cash cows. Out of the five stages of a product life cycle I believe Zen bracelets are in their Maturity Stage, but since her business is still not that well-known by many, her products can have growth potential if she can get her name out there. I believe by differentiating herself from “Alex & Ani” will help her find a larger portion of the market share....

.... The demand for the phone was bigger than Apple thought it would be, especially because they had a release on two different phones at the same time, which was iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. With a new fingerprint identity sensor, 64-bit A7 chip, and an even more impressive iSight camera, but that is just one new feature among many more. The iPhone 5c has an A6 chip, 8MP iSight camera, 4-inch Retina display. Ultrafast LTE wireless. iPhone 5c has the things that made iPhone 5 an amazing phone and more, including iOS 7. All in a completely new design that feels great in your hand. Critics had also said the iPhone 5c was priced too high to take advantage of pent-up demand in emerging markets. My Evaluation From the article I have read, I can conclude that the iPhone 5s will be more expensive if the 5c get cheaper. It is not a short-term solution, rather a long-term. It will not affect humans in any way. This policy will not create another problem either. The weakness in my theory is that less people will buy the iPhone 5s because it will more expensive. What is unrealistic in my theory is that, I believe that there will be no changes in the quantity of people who will by the 5s. I do not believe it will have any affect on the Apple, because there will still be many people who will be interested to by the 5c, especially since the price was lowered. The policy will be good for Apple, but bad for other companies like Samsung, Sony and other phone producers. The priorities are...

...Tropical Building Design Considerations 1. Naturally comfortable houses are low energy houses 2. Ceiling fans provide low energy cooling if you only use them whilst rooms are occupied 3. Light coloured roofs (or zinc alum) reflect the heat 4. Use orientation and shading to eliminate direct sun on walls 5. Minimise east and west wall areas and avoid windows on east and western walls to prevent low morning and afternoon sun heating up the house 6. Correctly sized eaves can provide permanent shade to north and south windows and walls (northern verandas make sense 7. Plant tall trees on the east and west sides of the house to shade walls 8. Tall trees on north and south shade roof (minimise mid-height foliage to let breeze through for naturally ventilated houses). Consider leaving half roof unshaded if solar panels are to be used Design for Natural Ventilation 1. Use the breeze for cross ventilation through openings in opposite walls and internal partitions 2. Maximise the area of windows (e.g. louvres) that can be opened 3. Orientate house to catch the breeze (whilst still minimising sun on east and west walls) 4. A long narrow floor plan catches the breeze best. 5. Trees and shrubs act to cool the air passing through the house. 6. Don't use exposed concrete on ground immediately outside the house as it heats the air. 7. Roof space ventilation draws the heat out. 8. Dirty flyscreens block more breeze. Consider...

Ia Econs Tips

...This post will go through what you should write in your Economics IA, with step-by-step instructions and with word counts for each section. What you need to know before you write: 1) Avoid writing anything that isn’t going to earn you marks. You’re going to need all the words you can get for your analysis and evaluation. Avoid quotes from the article and introductions longer than 2 sentences. 2) Stick with one section of the course (micro, macro, international, or development). Don’t start off in micro (apple prices rise, supply and demand, elasticity) and then evaluate the potential macro effects (this could hurt economic growth). Even if this is true, the IA is about going deep into one part of the course, rather than showing the linkages between different parts. 3) Less is (often) more. Because of the very constraining word count (750 words) you’ll want to focus on really developing just one or two (two at the most) diagrams in your IA. And only evaluate one potential solution (the one in the article or one of your choice if (and only if) there isn’t one in your article. Some of you, I know, are wondering, “What if the article mentions two solutions? Like price ceilings AND subsidies?” Answer: the International Bacheloreate Organization says you can highlight the section of the article you’re going to focus on, so just highlight one solution (and not the other) and you’re good to go. Bibliographies are not obligatory, but they’re nice. And if you include them, they won’t...

He notes that deviant/delinquent acts are not always undertaken as an individual response to frustration but rather as a collective response. Many delinquent/deviant acts are not always undertaken for financial gain but are nonutilitarian and malicious. He sees the cause of much delinquency as status frustration. Success is replaced with an alternative to gain prestige in the eyes of their peers.

This paper gives consideration to both sustainability and supply chains. First, the relationship between these two concepts and previous work on environmental management of operations is considered. Second, new questions and research directions prompted by taking a sustainable supply chain perspective are considered. While many of the resulting areas of research relate directly to operations management, a great number of these open issues are fundamentally interdisciplinary in nature. This interdisciplinary nature is evident from the...

Is this study design strong or weak? Provide a rationale for your answer. Answer: both study tables shows the positive effects of the program. The life satisfaction, health behavior improved and the total risk score decreased; however there is a decrease in these positive effects 3 months after the completion of the health promotion program. I believe this study design is weak. In this study a single group of subjects were exposed to pretest, treatment and posttest. Therefore, they themselves served as control during the pretest which is them compared to the posttest. I believe this is a weak study as it is difficult to determine the effects of a treatment without a proper comparison to a separate control group.
