...expensive fossil fuel to actually obtain * Coal-powered generation scales well, making it economically possible to build a wide variety of sizes of generation plants. * A fossil-fuelled power station can be built almost anywhere, so long as you can get large quantities of fuel to it. Most coal fired power stations have dedicated rail links to supply the coal. However, the important issue as of now is whether there are more advantages than disadvantages of fossil fuels like coal! Some disadvantages of coal are that - * it is Non-renewable and fast depleting; * Coal has the lowest energy density of any fossil fuel - that is, it produces the least energy per ton of fuel * It also has the lowest energy density per unit volume, meaning that the amount of energy generated per cubic meter is lower than any other fossil fuel * high coal transportation costs due to the bulk of coal (as a result of the preceding two low energy density problems), especially for countries with no coal resources and hence will require special harbours for coal import and storage. * Coal dust is an extreme explosion hazzard, so transportation and storage must take special precautions to mitigate this danger * Coal storage cost is high especially if required to have enough stock for few years to assure power production availability. * burning fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide, a powerful greenhouse gas, that had been stored in the earth for millions of years,......

...Hence, this is an exclusive, rather than an inclusive, or. Sometimes, we use or in an exclusive sense. When the exclusive or is used to connect the propositions p and q, the proposition “p or q (but not both)” is obtained. Let p and q be propositions. The exclusive or of p and q, denoted by , is the proposition that is true when exactly one of p and q is true and is false otherwise. Table 4. The truth table for the exclusive or of two propositions | p | Q | | TTFF | TFTF | FTTF | Let p and q be propositions. The implication is the proposition that is false when p is true and q is false and true otherwise. In this implication p is called the hypothesis (or antecedent or premise) and q is called the conclusion (or consequence). Table 5. The truth table for the implication | p | Q | | TTFF | TFTF | TFTT | Because implications arise in many places in mathematical reasoning, a wide variety of terminology is used to express . Some of the more common ways of expressing this implication are: “if p, then q”, “p implies q”, “if p, q”, “p only if q”, “p is sufficient for q”, “q if p”, “q whenever p”, “q is necessary for p”. We can build up compound propositions using the negation operator and the different connectives defined so far. Parentheses are used to specify the order in which the various logical operators in a compound proposition are applied. In particular, the logical operators in the innermost parentheses are applied first. For instance, is the conjunction of ......

...computer programmer. The first true computer appeared in 1943 when the U.S. Army created a computer called ENIAC that was able to calculate artillery trajectories. To give it instructions, you had to physically flip its different switches and rearrange its cables. However, physically rearranging cables and switches to reprogram a computer proved to be very tasking and clumsy. So instead of physically rearranging the computer’s wiring, computer scientists decided it would be easier to give the computer different instructions. In the old days, computers were taking up entire rooms and cost millions of dollars. Today, computers have shrunk that they are essentially nothing more than a piece of granular bar which are called the central processing unit (CPU), or processor. However in order to tell the processor what to do, you have to give it instructions written in a language that it can understand. That is where programming languages comes in. There many different computer languages and each one of them are similar in some ways, but are also different in other ways, such as: program syntax, the format of the language, and the limitations of the language. Most computer programmers start programming in languages such as: Turbo Pascal, Basic, Assembly, and FORTRAN are some of the oldest computer languages and C, C++, Visual basic are some of today’s popular and advance languages. Many of today's modern languages have been a result of one of these three languages, but are greatly......

Suppose you want to construct a movie theater in your town. The number of seats in each row can be modeled by the formula C (n) = 16 + 4(n), when n refers to the nth row, and you need 50 rows of seats. (a) Write the sequence for the number of seats for the first 5 rows: C (n) = 16 +4(n), so for the first row the value of “n” is set to 1. By substituting “1” for “n’” in the function: c (1) =16 + 4(1), c (1) = 16+4, c (1) = 20. I now know that there are 20 seats in the first row of the theater. By substituting the values of 2-5 for “n” I can find the numbers of seat for the first 5 rows. C (2) = 16+4(2) or c (2) = 24 for the second row C (3) =16+4(3) or c (3) =28 for the third row C (4) =16+4(4) or c (3) = 32 for the fourth row C (5) =16+4(5) or c (5)= 36 for the fifth row (b) How many seats will be in the last row?

...meaning of a function, so this means that this relation is not a function. Part II: Mathematical sequences can be used to model real life applications. Suppose you want to construct a movie theater in your town. The number of seats in each row can be modeled by the formula C_n = 16 + 4n, when n refers to the nth row, and you need 50 rows of seats. (a) Write the sequence for the number of seats for the first 5 rows C(1) = 16 + 4 (1) = 16 + 4 = 20 seats in the first row C(2) = 16 + 4 (2) = 16 + 8 = 24 seats in the first row C(3) = 16 + 4 (3) = 16 + 12 = 28 seats in the first row C(4) = 16 + 4 (4) = 16 + 16 = 32 seats in the first row C(5) = 16 + 4 (5) = 16 + 20 = 36 seats in the first row The sequence for the number of seats in the first 5 rows would be the following; 20, 24, 28, 32, 36 (b) How many seats will be in the last row? There are 50 rows, so n = 50 C(50) = 16 + 4 (50) = 16 + 200 = 216 seats in the last row The last row will have 216 seats. (c) What will be the total number of seats in the theater? From our MATH 203 Live Chat Session #4 on Wednesday evening 26 November 2014 we learned that the Sum of terms in a Sequence has the following formula; Sn = [ n (a1 + an ) ] / 2 So with that said n = 50 for the number of rows in the theater. S50 = [ 50 (a1 + an ) ] / 2 So in this case a1 is the first row which equals 20 seats in that row and an is the last row (50th row) which equals 216 seats in......

...L1.1 Lecture Notes: Logic Justification: Precise and structured reasoning is needed in all sciences including computer science. Logic is the basis of all reasoning. Computer programs are similar to logical proofs. Just as positive whole numbers are the fundamental units for arithmetic, propsitions are the fundamental units of logic. Proposition: A statement that is either true or false. E.g. Today is Monday Today is Tuesday The square root of 4 is 2 The square root of 4 is 1 2 is even, and the square of two is even, and 3 is odd and the square of 3 is odd. The Panthers can clinch a playoff berth with a win, plus a loss by the Rams, a loss or tie by the Saints and Bears, a win by the Seahawks and a tie between the Redskins and Cowboys. (Copied verbatim from the sports page 12/26/2004.) Propositions may be true or false and no preference is given one way or the other. This is sometimes difficult to grasp as we have a “natural” preference for true statements. But “snow is chartreuse” and “snow is white” are both propositions of equal standing though one is true and the other false. Non-propositions: What is today? Is today Monday? Questions are not propositions. You can’t judge whether the question itself is true or false, even though the answer to the question may be true or false. Show me some ID! Similarly, imperative statements lack a truth value. 2x=4 x=y Statements with undetermined variables do not have......

...red, so the probability that the second ball is red is 4/7 (and the probability that it is yellow is 3/7). On the other hand, if the ﬁrst ball is yellow, then ﬁve out of the remaining seven balls are red, so the probability that the second ball is red is 5/7 (and the probability that it is yellow is 2/7). The probabilities of each of the four outcomes can be computed by multiplying the probabilities along the branches leading to the outcomes. First ball R 5 8 3 8 Second ball 4 7 3 7 Y 5 7 2 7 R Y R Y Outcome Probability RR 5 8 × 4 7 = 5 14 RY 5 8 × 3 7 = 15 56 YR 3 8 × 5 7 = 15 56 YY 3 8 × 2 7 = 3 28 (b) Before the ﬁrst draw, ﬁve out of the eight balls in the urn are red. Each ball is equally likely to be drawn. So the probability that the ﬁrst ball drawn is red is 5/8. (c) The event that at least one of the two balls is red contains three outcomes: RR, RY, and YR. Since we know the probabilities of all of these outcomes, we can ﬁnd the probability of this event by adding the probabilities of the individual outcomes. So the probability that at least one of the two balls is red is 5/14 + 15/56 + 15/56 = 25/28. Alternatively, we can observe that the event that at least one of the two balls is red is the complement of the event that both balls are yellow. The probability that both balls are yellow is 3/28, so the probability that it......

D – Domain = the teams, Q – Range = the players. The Cowboys are a function to Troy Aikman because they are the only team he is associated with and the Cowboys have no relation to any of the other players, the same goes for the Giants and Eli Manning and the Patriots and Tom Brady. Similarly, the Jets are a function to Joe Namath because no other players are related to them, same for the Rams. The same is also true for the 49’ers and the Chiefs, they are functions to Joe Montana. 3. Switching the D – Domain = the players and Q – Range = the teams, now if the players are in the domain column, we can clearly see that Joe Montana and Joe Namath are not functions of their respective teams because they have two connections in the domain (Editorial Board, 2015). The other players remain functions because they are still only associated with one team as seen below. | JETS | Troy Aikman | COWBOYS | Joe Montana | 49’ers | Joe Namath | PATRIOTS | Eli Manning | RAMS | Tom Brady | CHIEFS | | GIANTS | 4. Clearly Joe Namath and Joe Montana are not functions of their respective teams. This is shown through the inverse relation where the players have more than one connection coming......
