A Study of Certain Secondary Phenomena in the Motion of the Bowed Violin String
As long as there have been violins, people have wondered how a few rosin-coated strands of horsehair on a violin bow could produce a steady tone when drawn across a string. Hermann von Helmholtz,, although not the first ...
A Spectrographic Analysis of Materials Extracted from the Waste Waters of Kalamazoo by the Kalamazoo Water Treatment Plant
This paper is concerned with the techniques and procedure for doing a complete spectrographic analysis. It was necessary to supplement the actual analysis with a short discussion on basic quantum theory, as well as a ...
Various Techniques Used in Making Measurements of Celestial bodies
This SIP consisted of nine experiments utilizing various techniques for determining certain facts about several celestial objects. Each exercise will first include some background information and then tell how it was ...
Low Temperature Thermopower of Pt - Co Alloys: Spin Fluctuation Systems
The transport properties of a series of Pt - Co alloys are studied. Initial measurements of the thermopower of 0.3, 0.7, 1.5, and 4.0 at .% (atomic percent) Pt - Co alloys are displayed. The observed thermopower anomaly ...
Behavior of Gut & Nylon Tennis Strings Under Applied Stress
This study was initiated for the purpose of studying the elastic and resilient properties of gut and nylon string used in the sport of tennis.
A Low-Cost, DC/Low-Frequency Response FM/FM Telemetry System for Orthopedic Gait Analysis, Biomechanical Measurements, and Other Applications
This paper is intended to describe the design, operating principles, and implementation of a telemetry instrumentation system. The essential characteristics of the system are: 1) It is effective for the acquisition of ...
An Electronic Gating Device
The purpose of this project is to redesign the Transistor Gate circuit, first designed by Dr. Wayne M. Wright, using Integrated Circuits (ICs). Dr. wright's circuit was made by using only transistors. By using the ICs, the ...
Possibilities for the Development of a Low-Cost, Plastic, Water Heating Solar Collector
The intent of this project was to examine whether HCX Board could serve as the basis for a low cost, plastic solar water heater for both low temperature applications (such as pool heating) and high temperature applications ...
Tubular and Exponential Horn Acoustic Couplers for Monotone Operation of Electrodynamic Drivers
The purpose of this project was to investigate the properties of tubular and exponential horn couplers designed to produce pc loading. The theory for design of tubular couplers is reviewed, and extended to exponential ...
Fluid Flow in Straight and Curved Pipes
This paper is involved with the motion of fluids through constraining devices . Fluids differ with solids in that they are substances , usually gases or liquids , that alter their shape in response to forces and tend to ...
