1. Which part of the human body is shown as the eyes in the building?

2. Which parts of the human body can be compared to pumps?

3. Which room in the top of the building represents the memory?

4. Which part of the human body is shown in the building as the cable carrying wires to all parts?

5. What do the bellows in the building and the lungs in the body have in common? Try to mention at least two things.

B. Play the alphabet game to make a WORD SEARCH of your own. There may not be less than SIX words in your game. Either choose a letter from the alphabet and write down as many parts of the body beginning with that letter as you can think of, or work through the alphabet trying to find a part of the body that begins with each letter.

LO 3.8.2

Use your own paper to design your own word search game.

C. Look at the picture of the human skeleton on page 8 and answer the following questions.

1. Where is the humerus?

2. What is another name for the kneecap?

3. What would you have broken if your clavicle were fractured?

4. What is the name of the longest bone in the body?

5. Why do you think Elvis Presley was nicknamed ‘Elvis the Pelvis’?

6. When accidentally knocking the elbow hard against something, people say they have hit their ‘funny bone’. Why do you think they call it the funny bone? (Remember to refer to the drawing of the skeleton.)

LO 3.8.2


Learning Outcomes(LOs)
LO 3
READING AND VIEWING The learner is able to read and view for information and enjoyment, and to respond critically to the aesthetic, cultural and emotional values in texts.
We know this when the learner:
3.1 reads and responds critically to a variety of South African and international fiction and non-fiction (journals, poetry, novels, short plays, newspapers, textbooks, etc.):
3.1.1 reads aloud and silently, adjusting reading strategies to suit the purpose and audience;
3.1.2 uses appropriate reading and comprehension strategies (skimming, and scanning, predictions, contextual clues, inferences, monitoring comprehension, etc.);
3.7 identifies and critically discusses cultural and social values in texts:
3.7.3 discusses the diversity of social and cultural values in texts;
3.8 understands and uses information texts appropriately:
3.8.1 summarises main and supporting ideas;
3.8.2 selects and records relevant information appropriately;
3.9 interprets and analyses independently details in graphical texts (maps, line graphs, bar graphs and pie charts) and transfers information from one form to another.
LO 5
THINKING AND REASONING The learner is able to use language to think and reason, and access, process and use information for learning.
We know this when the learner:
5.3 processes information:
5.3.1 categorises and classifies information and can explain what these processes entail, giving examples form different learning areas;

3. collarbone

4. femur

5. He gyrated his pelvis when he sang.

6. If you knock it accidentally it produces a “funny” tingling feeling. It makes you grimace (makes you seem to laugh while you are actually expressing pain).

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.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
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
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
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
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

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.
