A block of mass M = 0.10 kg is attached to one end of a spring with spring constant k = 100 N/m . The other end of the spring is attached to a fixed wall. The block is pushed against the spring, compressing it a distance x = 0.04 m . The block is then released from rest, and the block-spring system travels along a horizontal, rough track. Data collected from a motion detector are used to create a graph of the kinetic energy K and spring potential energy Us of the system as a function of the block's position as the spring expands. How can the student determine the amount of mechanical energy dissipated by friction as the spring expanded to its natural spring length?
The Atwood’s machine shown consists of two blocks connected by a light string that passes over a pulley of negligible mass and negligible friction. The blocks are released from rest, and m2 is greater than m1. Assume that the reference line of zero gravitational potential energy is the floor. Which of the following best represents the total gravitational potential energy U and total kinetic energy K of the block-block-Earth system as a function of the height h of block m1?
A 2 kg block is placed at the top of an incline and released from rest near Earth’s surface and unknown distance H above the ground. The angle θ between the ground and the incline is also unknown. Frictional forces between the block and the incline are considered to be negligible. The block eventually slides to the bottom of the incline after 0.75 s. The block’s velocity v as a function of time t is shown in the graph starting from the instant it is released. How could a student use the graph to determine the total energy of the block-Earth system?
A block slides across a flat, horizontal surface to the right. For each choice, the arrows represent velocity vectors of the block at successive intervals of time. Which of the following diagrams represents the situation in which the block loses kinetic energy?
6.Facultative anaerobes can grow with or without free oxygen in their environment (e.g., gut-dwelling bacteria). Obligatory anaerobes require absence of
bacteria). Obligatory anaerobes require absence of oxygen.
You are researching how a facultative anaerobe transitions from anaerobic to aerobic respiration along the length of the human intestine (small and large intestine), where oxygen levels – and with them respiration - vary from atmospheric levels of oxygen (aerobic respiration) to no oxygen (anaerobic respiration).
You grow cultures of a facultative anaerobic bacteria in flasks with different levels of oxygen that mimic the conditions in the 7.5m long human intestines and collect data on the growth rates of the bacteria (number of bacterial colonies) under the different conditions. Time food spends in the small intestine, 2.5m long, is 4 hrs. The time taken for food to pass through the entire length of the intestine is between 24 and 72 hrs.
To determine oxygen levels in your flasks, you use the ratio of oxygen to nitrogen, which you vary between 0 (no oxygen) and 0.25 (atmospheric levels of oxygen). You assume that for conditions where r<0.01 your bacteria will be obligatorily anaerobic, and aerobic respiration will be observed from r=0.05.
If the oxygen ratio goes from 0.25 to 0 over 7.5 m, and rO2 = 0.25 – 0.03x (x=distance along the intestine) describes the relationship between oxygen ration and the length of path travelled by the bacteria in the intestine, how long will it take bacteria to pass from the small into the large intestine? Explain how you arrived at your estimate.
A vital area of research is the identification of the correct statistical test to answer your research question.
Final Mission: You
your research question.
Final Mission: You will use the given dataset to develop a research question, create background on the topic related to the research question, and complete an analysis of the data to answer that research question.
➢ Use no more than 12 slides with a voice-over description for each slide. You may be creative with background and animation for the slide show but remember that it is the content that is most important (and animation, etc. can greatly increase your file size).
➢ Include an introductory slide that states your name, credentials, and title of your presentation.
➢ Present your research question.
➢ Identify the appropriate statistical test to answer the research question.
o Identify your variables of interest.
o Identify how they are measured and match them to the appropriate statistical test.
➢ Identify and evaluate appropriate assumptions to meet the test.
o Each statistical test comes with a set of assumptions that must be met in order to use the test; conditions that must be satisfied before using the test.
o Explain the assumptions and show how they have been met as well as how you would “fix” them if they were “broken.”
➢ Provide a justification for all the choices you made in the decision of which statistic to use and explain the necessary tests associated with it in terms someone not familiar with it would understand.
➢ Use APA format for any citations within the PowerPoint.
8.ou are a consultant who works for the Diligent Consulting Group. In this Case, you are engaged on a consulting
consulting basis by Loving Organic Foods. In order to get a better idea of what might have motivated customers’ buying habits you are asked to analyze the ages of the customers who have purchased organic foods over the past 3 months. Past research done by the Diligent Consulting Group has shown that different age groups buy certain products for different reasons. Loving Organic Foods has sent a survey to 200 customers who have previously purchased organic foods, and 124 customers have responded. The survey includes age data of past customers who purchased organic foods in the previous quarter.
Using Excel, create a frequency distribution (histogram) of the age data that was captured from the survey. You should consider the width of the age categories (e.g., 5 years, 10 years, or other). That is, which age category grouping provides the most useful information? Once you have created this histogram, determine the mean, median, and mode.
After you have reviewed the data, write a report to your boss that briefly describes the results that you obtained. Make a recommendation on how this data might be used for marketing purposes. Be sure to conduct adequate research on organic foods industry, organic market analysis, and healthy food industry using IBISWorld database or other databases such as Business Source Complete (EBSCO) and Business Source Complete - Business Searching Interface in our online library. Provide a brief description on the industry background and the consumer changing attitudes and behavior toward healthy lifestyles. Also identify the customer demographics of organic food industry and explain how the customers of Loving Organic Foods are different from this target market.
Data: Download the Excel-based data file with the age data of the 124 customers: Data chart for BUS520 Module 1 Case. Use these data in Excel to create your histogram.
