1.educational services

Play school

Nursery school

Primary school

High school

Technical college

Technikon

University

Write down the name of your own school in the space provided below, and the names of other places in your town or city where educational services are rendered. You will see that the larger the town / city, the longer the list will be.

Activity 1

To determine whether educational facilities are within easy range [lo 1.7, 2.1]

If there isn’t a university, school, technikon, technical college or high school in your town or city, you must try to find out which of these educational facilities are closest to you, and then fill in the information in the space below.

Our town, city or suburb:

The closest to us:

Educational services Name Distance
High School:
Technical College:
Technikon:
University:

What advantage does it hold for young people if they live near a place where they can continue their studies?

2.trade services

Activity 2

To be aware of services rendered by people or authorities [lo 2.2, 2.3, 3.2]

You have already discovered that the larger the place (city or town), the greater the chance that there will be many different kinds of educational services available to the community. The same applies to trade services – the larger the town or city, the more and the better the available services.

The sentences below are all related to trade services and where they are rendered. Read each sentence carefully, make sure that you understand it, and then discuss it with your classmates. Mark whether the statement is true or false.

1. People will often travel from a smaller town to a larger one to do their shopping there.
2. If a farmer wants to sell 25 tons of potatoes in one go it will be best for him to take it to a market in the city.
3. A jeweller who sells only diamond rings should rather open his jewellery shop in a big city.
4. The use of computers is the reason why there are fewer and fewer banks in small towns.
5. Today, in the smallest towns, one finds CD shops that sell only CDs with classical and opera music.
6. More people visit a flea market in small towns than in cities.

In cities and large towns there are many people who buy products and make use of services. We say there is a big market . We know that the greater the market, the less expensive the product can be.

You will understand that you would rather make a profit of R2,00 on ten articles (R20,00 profit) than R4,00 on each article of which you sell only two (R8,00 profit)!

But when one speaks of trade services, one does not necessarily mean that only products or articles are sold. Many people sell their services , for example lawyers and advocates, accountants, travel agents, people who invest other people’s money, and so on. These kinds of services are more readily available in larger centres than in small towns.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?

what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
