How important is today?

Suppose that you and a friend were working on a wine and a wheat farm respectively during the eighteenth century. Compile a joint farming programme in which you compare your duties during the year with similar present-day (modern) farming.

Activity 3:

To report on cattle farming

[lo 1.3]

a) Read the following article attentively and then conduct a class quiz on the information contained in it.

The Dutch later crossed the cattle they had brought with them from the Netherlands with cattle traded from the Khoina. The red Afrikaner cattle are representative of the cattle that were developed in those times.

The king of Spain presented two merino rams and four ewes to the Dutch government in 1789. The rams thrived at the Cape and provided wool and meat of excellent quality. Today, approximately 80 % of South African flocks are made up of this race of sheep. There are about 28 million sheep in South Africa!

Some cattle farmers had left the Cape by the eighteenth century to move into the interior. They kept stock for meat rather than for wool. Their food mainly consisted of the mutton obtained from their hardy fat-tailed sheep, beef from the long-horned cattle and venison from the large herds of game. Cream was separated from milk to make butter and fruit was preserved by means of drying or bottling. Sometimes the farmers sowed grains, but harvesting it was not possible when they were obliged to move on to find grazing, or when it was damaged due to wet weather or drought. Bread was baked in anthills or clay ovens. Coffee, tea and sugar were luxury items and were mostly "bought" from itinerant traders ("smouse").

Activity 4:

To differentiate between facts and opinions concerning the present-day (modern) provision of food

[lo 2.3]

Nowadays most people live in towns or cities where they are close to food. Form groups for finding out where the basic foodstuffs that you require come from.

  1. Draw the following table in you workbook. Then complete a survey by questioning the members of your family.
BASIC FOODSTUFFS DISTANCE
(Change, if necessary) 0,5 km 2 km+ 5 km+
Bread/"pap"
Meat
Butter
Fresh fruit/vegetables
Tinned food
Average distance:

b) Now you have obtained specific information from oral sources. Determine whether the following distances represent facts or opinions:

Most foodstuffs are easily accessible.

Most shopping is done close to people's homes.

Most of the above foodstuffs are bought at specific places.

This situation is altogether different from that the previous century or centuries.

Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
ninjadapaul
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul
hmm
Abhi
is it a question of log

The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

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

can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
