The United States and National Security and Dominant Party in Balance The United States and National Security, and Dominant Party in Balance of Power The emergence of the United States as a dominant party in balance of power equations is a relatively new phenomenon in world history. New military technology coupled with increased global integration has allowed the United States to reinvent the fundamental assumptions of international diplomacy while propelling itself to the top of the hegemonic stepladder. This positioning was achieved piecemeal during the course o

Werner Heisenberg Werner Heisenberg One cannot fully appreciate the work of Werner Heisenberg unless one examines his contributions in the context of the time in which he lived. Werner Karl Heisenberg was born in Wuerzburg, Germany, on December 5, 1901, and grew up in academic surroundings, in a household devoted to the humanities. His father was a professor at the University of Munich and undoubtedly greatly influenced young Werner, who was a student at the Maximilian Gymnasium. Heisenberg had the opportunity t

MathematicsMathematics Throughout the years, the history of mathematics has taken its fair share of changes. It has stretched across the world from the Far East, migrating into the Western Hemisphere. One of the most fundamental and key principles of mathematics has been the quadratic formula. Having been used in several different cultures, the formula has been part of the base of mathematics theory. The general equation has been derived from many different sources, most commonly: ax2 + bx + c = 0, with x

Leonardo Pisano was the first great mathematician of medieval Leonardo Pisano was the first great mathematician of medieval Christian Europe. He played an important role in reviving ancient mathematics and made great contributions of his own. After his death in 1240, Leonardo Pisano became known as Leonardo Fibonacci. Leonardo Fibonacci was born in Pisa in about 1180, the son of a member of the government of the Republic of Pisa. When he was 12 years old, his father was made administer of Pisa's trading colony in Algeria. It was in Algeria that he was tau

Abstract The Superstring theory is quite possibly one of the leading Abstract: The Superstring theory is quite possibly one of the leading Theories of Everything. Meaning that, it proven, it would postulate all of physics in one equation. The history of Superstrings and the conditions that brought it forth are viewed as wells as the impending implications of this discovery. Notice: This research paper approaches the subject of Superstrings from a quantitative viewpoint due to the lack of breadth of mind (of the author). Meaning, the author does not have the col

Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss was a German mathematician physicist and a Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss was a German mathematician, physicist and astronomer. He is considered to be the greatest mathematician of his time, equal to the likes of Archimedes and Isaac Newton. He is frequently called the founder of modern mathematics. It must also be noted that his work in the fields of astronomy and physics (especially the study of electromagnetism) is nearly as significant as that in mathematics. He also contributed much to crystallography, optics, biostatistics and mechan

Differential Equations Differential Equations Introduction Calculus is one of the most powerful and useful branches in the field of mathematics. It has been a major contributor to our knowledge of physics and engineering. Even though this field is so vast and complicated, it is only sub-divided into two major groups. These two branches being Differential and Integral Calculus. Combining the branches, we are able to achieve a higher goal; finding the solution to a differential equation. First, the basis of differentia

Stoichiometry and the Chemical Equation Stoichiometry and the Chemical Equation (Reaction of Hydrogen Peroxide and Bleach) Purpose and Method: When hydrogen peroxide, H2O2(aq), is mixed with bleach, active ingredient, NaOCl(aq), oxygen gas is formed, O2(g). Based on the amount of reactants used and the amount of product(s), determine the stoichiometry of the chemical reaction. Running two sets of reactions; SET A where the amount of bleach is held at a constant 4.0mL; secondly SET B where the amount of H2O2(aq) is held at a constant

Complex Number in mathematics the sum of a real number and an imaginar Complex Number, in mathematics, the sum of a real number and an imaginary number. An imaginary number is a multiple of i, where i is the square root of -1. Complex numbers can be expressed in the form a + bi, where a and b are real numbers. They have the algebraic structure of a field in mathematics. In engineering and physics, complex numbers are used extensively to describe electric circuits and electromagnetic waves (see Electromagnetic Radiation). The number i appears explicitly in the Schr

Acient MathematicsAcient Mathematics The earliest records of advanced, organized mathematics date back to the ancient Mesopotamian country of Babylonia and to Egypt of the 3rd millennium BC. There mathematics was dominated by arithmetic, with an emphasis on measurement and calculation in geometry and with no trace of later mathematical concepts such as axioms or proofs. The earliest Egyptian texts, composed about 1800 BC, reveal a decimal numeration system with separate symbols for the successive powers of 10 (1,

Black HolesBlack Holes The theoretical existence of black holes started in 1916, when general relativity was new, Karl Schwarzschild worked out a useful solution to the Einstein equation describing the evolution of space-time geometry. This solution, a possible shape of space-time, would describe the effects of gravity outside a spherically symmetric, uncharged, non-rotating object. At small radii, the solution began to act strangely. There was a singularity at the center, where the curvature of space-ti

Ancient Advances in MathematicsAncient Advances in Mathematics Ancient knowledge of the sciences was often wrong and wholly unsatisfactory by modern standards. However not all of the knowledge of the more learned peoples of the past was false. In fact without people like Euclid or Plato we may not have been as advanced in this age as we are. Mathematics is an adventure in ideas. Within the history of mathematics, one finds the ideas and lives of some of the most brilliant people in the history of mankind's' populace upon Eart

Georg CantorGeorg Cantor I. Georg Cantor Georg Cantor founded set theory and introduced the concept of infinite numbers with his discovery of cardinal numbers. He also advanced the study of trigonometric series and was the first to prove the nondenumerability of the real numbers. Georg Ferdinand Ludwig Philipp Cantor was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, on March 3, 1845. His family stayed in Russia for eleven years until the father's sickly health forced them to move to the more acceptable environment of Fra

Black HolesBlack Holes Every day we look out upon the night sky, wondering and dreaming of what lies beyond our planet. The universe that we live in is so diverse and unique, and it interests us to learn about all the variance that lies beyond our grasp. Within this marvel of wonders, our universe holds a mystery that is very difficult to understand because of the complications that arise when trying to examine and explore the principles of space. That mystery happens to be that of the ever elusive, black

Our search for explanation rests only when there is a lack of questions. Our skies hold infinite quandaries, so the quest for answers will, as a result, also be infinite. Since its inception, Astronomy as a science speculated heavily upon discovery, and only came to concrete conclusions later with closer inspection. Aspects of the skies which at one time seemed like

The Study of Akali Metal Contamination in Road Side SoilThe Study of Akali Metal Contamination in Road Side Soil IL 3; Experiment 1 October 31, 1996 Abstract Six soil samples were taken from a roadside that was expected to exhibit characteristic of road salt contamination. This contamination is characterized by the presence of magnesium, calcium and sodium. The relationship between akali metal concentration and distance from the pavement was examined and determined to be nonexistent. Additionally, atomic absorbtion and atomic emission spectroscopy we

Evaluating An Enthalpy Change That Cannot Be Measured DirectlyEvaluating An Enthalpy Change That Cannot Be Measured Directly. Dr. Watson. Introduction. We were told that sodium hydrogencarbonate decomposes on heating to give sodium carbonate, water and carbon dioxide as shown in the equation below:- 2NaHCO3(s)--------> Na2CO3 (s) + H2O (l) + CO2 (g) = DeltaH1 This was given as deltaH1 and we had to calculate as part of the experiment. This however cannot be measured directly, but can be found using the enthalpy changes from two other reactions. These being

UreaseUrease An experiment to determine the amount of urea in a specimen of urine. Introduction. Metabolism produces a number of toxic by-products, particularly the nitrogenous wastes that result from the breakdown of proteins and nucleic acids. Amino (NH2) groups are the result of such metabolic reactions and can be toxic if ammonia (NH3) is formed from them. Ammonia tends to raise the pH of bodily fluids and interfere with membrane transport functions. To avoid this the amino groups are converted in
