Volatile Organic Compounds

...National Textile University B.Sc. Textile Engineering Assignment no 1 Environmental Science Title : Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) Submitted By: Adeel mazhar 08-NTU-093 Affan Waqar 08-ntu-94 Submitted To: Sir Irfan siyal Date: 27-03-201 Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) What are Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) that we hear so much about? Simply, they are chemicals which are carbon-based (hence the “organic” in the name, as organic chemistry is the study of carbon containing compounds) and which volatilize – or rather, evaporate or vaporize – at ordinary (atmospheric) temperatures.  This is a very broad set of chemicals! These volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) are ubiquitous in the environment.  You can’t see them, but they’re all around us.  They’re not  listed as ingredients on the products you bring home, but they’re often there.   The most common VOC is methane, which comes from wetlands and rice agriculture to …well, “ruminant gases” (or cow farts – which are actually not a trivial consideration:  cows are responsible for 18% of all greenhouse gasses – read more here).  We ourselves contribute to CO2 emissions each time we breathe out.  They’re also in paint, carpets, furnishings, fabrics and cleaning agents. The evaporating chemicals from many products contribute to poor indoor air quality, which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency......

Compound Words

...A compound word is made when two words are joined to form a new word. Definition In English, words, particularly adjectives and nouns, are combined into compound structures in a variety of ways. And once they are formed, they sometimes metamorphose over time. A common pattern is that two words — fire fly, say — will be joined by a hyphen for a time — fire-fly — and then be joined into one word — firefly. In this respect, a language like German, in which words are happily and immediately linked one to the other, might seem to have an advantage. There is only one sure way to know how to spell compounds in English: use an authoritative dictionary. There are three forms of compound words: the closed form, in which the words are melded together, such as firefly, secondhand, softball, childlike, crosstown, redhead, keyboard, makeup, notebook; the hyphenated form, such as daughter-in-law, master-at-arms, over-the-counter, six-pack, six-year-old, mass-produced; and the open form, such as post office, real estate, middle class, full moon, half sister, attorney general. How a word modified by an adjective — "a little school," "the yellow butter" — is different from a compound word — " a high school," "thepeanut butter" — is a nice and philosophical question. It clearly has something to do with the degree to which the preceding word changes the essential character of the noun, the degree to which the modifier and the noun are inseparable. If you were diagramming a sentence with a...

The List

...The List Story by 10/16/2013 I find myself on the ledge of a building with two of his thugs grabbing me. I think to myself how did I get here? Should I have done what I did? Is this the end? I should start from the beginning. I grew up in a wealthy house hold. My father was well known for breakthroughs in the technology field. He was working on many projects but the one that made him a multi-millionaire was the work in self-sustaining energy. When I was eighteen, my father and I went on a trip to China, a trip that would change our lives forever. It was a pretty quiet plane ride. Dad was working on his laptop and I was listening to music. I noticed there was a very bad storm out of the window. The plane was shaking. Suddenly the lights went out and the oxygen masks deployed. Something hit my head. The next thing I know we are in the water and my dad is yelling my name. I see him in the distance swimming towards me. He gets to me and gives me his life vest. He tells me that I have to survive, that his company isn’t what I thought it was. He gives me a book with a list of names and tells me that everyone on that list has done terrible things to stay rich, and that he is no different. He told me stories of how he and the people on this list got wealthy by stepping on the necks of the poor. That he has had people hurt or killed to keep his company on top. He stayed with me as long as he could but as time went by he got weaker. He couldn’t......

...constitutes a "word" involves determining where one word ends and another word begins—in other words, identifying word boundaries. There are several ways to determine where the word boundaries of spoken language should be placed: Potential pause: A speaker is told to repeat a given sentence slowly, allowing for pauses. The speaker will tend to insert pauses at the word boundaries. However, this method is not foolproof: the speaker could easily break up polysyllabic words, or fail to separate two or more closely related words. Indivisibility: A speaker is told to say a sentence out loud, and then is told to say the sentence again with extra words added to it. Thus, I have lived in this village for ten years might become My family and I have lived in this little village for about ten or so years. These extra words will tend to be added in the word boundaries of the original sentence. However, some languages have infixes, which are put inside a word. Similarly, some have separable affixes; in the German sentence "Ich komme gut zu Hause an", the verb ankommen is separated. Phonetic boundaries: Some languages have particular rules of pronunciation that make it easy to spot where a word boundary should be. For example, in a language that regularly stresses the last syllable of a word, a word boundary is likely to fall after each stressed syllable. Another example can be seen in a language that has vowel harmony (like Turkish):[5] the vowels within a given word......

Mixtures and Compounds

...Mixtures and Compounds XXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX SCI-110 9 May 2011 Mixtures and Compounds Describe the difference between a mixture and a compound. Chemical compounds are in every known object or substance. They are composed of two elements that combine with each other. They can also be more than two elements. Compounds are one of three forms of matter, and the other two are element mixtures. Compounds have a definite composition, as water will always consist of 88.9% oxygen and 11.1% hydrogen. In contrast, the elements that make up a mixture of iron and sulfur are black iron granules and yellow sulfur crystals which are recognizable. By use of a magnet, iron can be removed from the mixture, and sulfur can be dissolved. In addition, iron and sulfur can be mixed together by just stirring them together (Clarified, 2011). Suppose that you have a pure substance. How can you tell whether it is a compound or an element? A pure substance is an element that cannot be broken down by chemical techniques, like heating, cooling, or reactions from chemicals. This type of pure substance has only one atom, like copper, gold or silver. A large chunk of gold will have millions of gold atoms, and no other atom exist in it. Take for example if you were to heat up copper to the point you melted it, the smallest unit of copper, called an atom is still copper, regardless if it is a solid, liquid, or gaseous state. The atom is the smallest subdivision of an element, but...

Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Elvis Presley were early rock-and-roll greats. - Simple 3. Teenagers loved the new music, but it disturbed many parents. - Compound 4. As much as the music itself, it was the sexually suggestive body language of the performers that worried the older generation. – Complex 5. The social turmoil that marked the 1960’s influenced many performers, and some began to use their music as a vehicle for protest. - Compound Exercise 31.7: Circle the simple subjects and verbs in the following passage. Place one line under each independent clause and two lines under each dependent clause. (Recall that as independent clause can stand on its own as a complete sentence.) Many argue that the blues and jazz are the first truly American musical forms. With its origins in slave narratives, the blues took root during the 1920’s and 1930’s as African-America composers, musicians and singers performed in the cabarets and clubs of Harlem. Jazz, however, has is origins in New Orleans. Today, we can still appreciate the music of Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington, and B.B. King. Rock and roll is also a distinctively American form of music. Our country’s first “rock star” was without a doubt Elvis Presley, who emerged in the nation’s airwaves in the mid-1950’s with such hits as Heartbreak Hotel, Don’t Be Cruel, and All Shook...

P(t) = P(0) e^(kt) P(0) = $1000.00 K = 0.5% = 0.005 | K = 1% = 0.01 | K = 1.5% = 0.015 | P(1) = 1005.01 | P(1) = 1010.50 | P(1) = 1015.11 | P (5) = 1025.32 | P(5) = 1051.27 | P(5) = 1077.88 | P (10) = 1051.27 | P(10) = 1105.17 | P(10) = 1161.83 | Time (T(k)) when your investment is doubling K= 0.5% | T(0.5%) | Round to whole number = 139 years | Round to tenths=138.6 | K=1% | T(1%) | Round to whole number = 69 years | Round to tenths= 69.3 | K=1.5% | T(1.5%) | Round to whole number = 46 years | Round to tenths= 46.2 | 2.) What affect did changing the interest rate have on the rate at which your investment grew? Changing the interest rate from 0.5% to 1% to 1.5% increased the rate overall of the investment such that when the interest rate was 1% at 5 years the amount of 1051.27 which increased to the amount of 1077.88 at the same year at a higher interest rate of 1.5%. As the interest rate grew higher and higher, the rate of the investment also grew higher. 3.) What affect did changing the interest rate have on the doubling time (time until your deposit doubled in size)? When the interest rate was lower, the number of years at which the investment doubled from $1000.00 to $2000.00 was higher. In my opinion, doubling the amount at the interest rate of 0.5% is somewhat unrealistic because the amount of years it is taking is almost 139 years which is not possible for a......
