In both stories the traditions are so dug into the people's way of life that questioning them is considered sacrilege within these communities. Furthermore, the members of the community no longer even remember why the traditions were set up in the fist place. They follow the traditions simply because their predecessors followed the tra

How useful is Attribution Theory
How useful is Attribution Theory? Attribution theory assumes that people try to determine why people do what they do. The theory deals with the information one uses in making casual inferences, and the way one deals with this information to answer a casual question. But how can this account to the usefulness of the theory? By knowing the reasons for various behaviours people can better predict future behaviours, and thus protect themselves from any unpleasant surprises (Brown, 1986). This search

The polar or non-polar character of a molecule will clearly be important in determining the nature of its interactions with other molecules. There will be relatively strong forces of attraction acting between molecules with large dipole moments. To a first approximation, the energy of interaction betwe

Enzymes Enzymes are biological catalysts; they speed up metabolic reactions by lowering energy barriers without being consumed by the reaction. Proteins in quaternary structure form enzymes. The chemical structure of an enzyme is related to its specificity and catalytic activity. Induced fit, cofactors, inhibitors, and specific active sites all affect the specificity and catalytic activity of enzymes. Being a protein, enzymes are affected by changes in conditions of their environment. In an expe

Both entertainment and education have been integrals parts of the huma
Both entertainment and education have been integrals parts of the human experience since the beginnings of time. Many scholars insist that the two institutions often serve jointly, with entertainers and entertainment serving as a main source of education. There is little argument, then, that in addition to generally appealing to the masses, entertainers have regularly fulfilled the role of a teacher to typically unsuspecting audiences. Entertainers have served as educators throughout history, fr

THE RENAISSANCE IN ITALY The rebirth of art in Italy was connected with the rediscovery of ancient philosophy, literature, science, and the evolution of empirical methods of study in these fields. Increased awareness of classical knowledge created a new resolve to learn by direct observation and study of the natural world. Consequently, secular themes became increasingly important to artists, and with the revived interest in antiquity came a new repertoire of subjects drawn from Greek and Rom

Ideal Gases vs Real Gases
Ideal Gases vs. Real Gases An ideal gas is a theoretical gas which perfectly fits into the equation PV= nRT. An ideal gas is different from a real gas in many ways. An ideal gases' mass can be disregarded in the equation because it has none; this is because an ideal gas is said to be a particle and particles do not have any mass. Ideal gases obtain no volume unlike real gases which obtain small volumes. Also, since ideal gas particles excerpt no attractive forces, their collisions are elastic. R
