Introduction of Computer-Assisted Instruciton to Kalamazoo College
This paper is designed to accomplish a number of things. First, it is meant to serve as an introduction to CAI as developed at Kalamazoo College. Second, it will give a cursory background of my involvement with CAI. ...
Rounding Phenomena Present in the Propagation of Low Amplitude Shock Waves in a Tube
The objective of this project was to attempt to determine causes for the two types of rounding that had been observed. Two particular effects seemed pertinent to our experimental situation. Whenever sound waves propagate ...
The Design and Construction of a Helium Dewar System
THE PURPOSE OF THIS PAPER IS TO PRESENT ASPECTS OF THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A HELIUM DEWAR SYSTEM. AN EXTENSIVE BACKGROUND SECTION PRESENTS THE READER WITH A FOUNDATION IN THE PROBLEMS OF DEWAR SYSTEM DESIGN. THE ...
Relaxation Time in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Absorption
The experiment under consideration in this paper attempts to measure the relaxation time of protons in samples of water doped with varying concentrations of paramagnetic ions. The specific technique used in this experiment ...
Experiments in Fluid Dynamics
This paper is a report on work done with the flow of water through two types of constraining devices. These constraining devices are pipes which have a circular cross-section and ducts which have a rectangular cross-section.
Cooling Pond Modeling
For the purposes of micrometeorology the atmosphere near the surface can be divided into three general regions. First, immediately adjacent to the surface exists a very thin laminar sublayer in which the air flow is smooth ...
A Statistical Analysis of Small Amplitude Water Waves
The evaluation and analysis of random data is of importance in many fields of study. Among its areas of importance are the studies of acoustic noise, economic data, biomedical data, and water waves. The following report ...
