Lab Preformed on: 2/9/12


Introduction
The tensile test was preformed on the following commonly used materials; 836 Cold Rolled Steel, T351-2024 Aluminum, 110 Copper, Grey Cast Iron, and HDPE Plastic. The first objective was to examine the stress-strain curves in order to calculate and identify the significant mechanical properties of these materials. The curves are also used to give a better understanding of what these mechanical properties mean. The second objective was to compare the mechanical properties and physical appearance of these materials. In order to get the stress-strain curves, each specimen was placed in the tensile testing apparatus. The load frame slowly stretches the specimen until it breaks. The extensometer, was placed directly on the specimen and was hooked up to a computer program that collected all of the data, which was used to make the stress-strain curves.

Procedure
First a punch was used to mark off a two inch section on each specimen. This section was marked off so that it could be used as a reference in finding the elongation of the specimen.Then, using a caliper, the diameter of each was measured and recorded. Now the mechanist calipers were set up in increments of 0.05 inches starting at 2.05 inches. Next the specimen was loaded into the tensile testing apparatus, the extensometer was put onto the specimen, and the data-acquisition program was turned on. The extensometer had to be taken off the specimen once it has reached its proportional limit. Once it was taken off the mechanist calipers were used. As soon as the length in between the two marks on the specimen lined up with the caliper length the data for the live load was recorded. This was done until the material fractured. Next the two halves were removed from…...

The first step in performing an attack is to plan the attack by identifying the target and learning as much as possible about it. Hackers usually perform an initial reconnaissance and probing scan to identify IP hosts, open ports, and services enabled on servers and workstations. In this lab, you planned an attack on 172.30.0.0/24 where the VM server farm resides, and used the Zenmap GUI to perform an “Intense Scan” on the targeted IP subnetwork. Note: These forms have been formatted to allow you to complete the form online and save it using Adobe Reader. You may experience problems with either or both of these actions if you are using any other software program. Lab Assessment Questions & Answers 1.

...Lab Report 1: Pipettes and Std Curve Ingrid Simons University of Texas at El Paso June 12, 2014 Introduction: Procedures that require very small volumes of DNA and reagents are performed with instruments such as, micropipettes and pipettes. These instruments are used when scientists need to accurately and precisely deliver small volumes of a liquid. Molecular biologists use very small volumes of liquid at times they are as small as 0.1 µL, in order to do these measurements the use micropipettes. The function of the micropipettes is to act as a plunger when the depressed by the thumb and by its release liquid is drawn into a disposable plastic tip. The liquid is released when the plunger is pressed again (The University of QueensLand). The tip is an important part of the micropipette, each tip is disposable and come in different sizes depending of the micropipette being used. There is three standard micropipettes, the P20 which measures 0.5-20μL, P200 that measures 20-200 μL, and P1000 that measures 100 μL to 1 mL. An important part of this laboratory was learning how to read the meniscus curve. A meniscus is a curve that is formed at the surface of a molecular substance, such as water, when it touches another material (USGS). Meniscus is caused by adhesion, a result of water’s high surface tension. The glass beaker attracts water molecules, and water molecules stay together, as a result many molecules gather to touch the glass. They will accumulate along...

Macroeconomic statistics include GDP, the inflation rate, the unemployment rate, retail sales, and the trade deficit. TRUE 2. Macroeconomic statistics tell us about a particular household, firm, or market. FALSE 3. Macroeconomics is the study of the economy as a whole. TRUE 4. The goal of macroeconomics is to explain the economic changes that affect many households, firms, and markets simultaneously. TRUE 5. Microeconomics and macroeconomics are closely linked. TRUE 6. The basic tools of supply and demand are as central to macroeconomic analysis as they are to microeconomic analysis. TRUE 7.

Since I understand schedules and families, we are breaking the volunteers up into 3 hour segments. The first segment is from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. for set-up, the second is from 12 a.m. – 3 p.m. for the event kickoff, the third is from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. for the event wind-down, and the last is from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. for tear-down/clean-up. My volunteer coordinator has an Excel spreadsheet of station needs and shift times. Once all volunteers are signed up, they will be assigned to a schedule and station for the day of the event.

Grit Test- Lab 1

...Grit Test- Lab 1 On the scale of 1 to 5, my grit test score was a 2.57, I gave every answer my time and was full honest but for some reason it just doesn’t make much sense. This test of grit is supposed to measures conscientiousness courage, excellence, resilience, and endurance versus perfection. In the courage part when it talks about fear of failure is described as, “a debilitating disorder characterized by an unhealthy aversion to risk. Some symptoms include anxiety, mental blocks, and perfectionism…” Even though I don’t think I have a disorder I’m pretty conscious with the fact that I do have a fear of failure. In fact, when it comes to perfectionism, I end up spending more time on the final presentation and every little detail rather than focus on the excellence of a project. Age is a very important in determining level of grit in a population. Individual experience about when being persistent allows you to figure out which things are worth doing. It may be worth someone you may be paying for services or solution to a problem, but it may not be worth pursuing a modeling career at the age of 30 and being 60 pounds overweight. Learning to pick my fights is not a reflection of my grittiness, but somewhat realistic of the human condition, which is almost always disappointing. Most of the tips listed on ways to improve grit said I was “realistic optimist” (Jotski, K.). This worked for me a couple quarters back when I chose to be the leader for a debate.......
