Assignment 3:

Now draw designs in the rectangles below to indicate how you want to decorate your container in order to give it texture. circle your best idea.

Lo 1.6]

Assignment 4:

Which tools / equipment will you use to make the pattern you have chosen? get the tools together and bring them to school.

[lo 1.8]

1. Requirements

The lid of your container must fit firmly on the container. There must also be a handle by which you can lift the lid.

Assignment 5:

Make a freehand design of the lid showing a three-dimensional top view and bottom view. circle your best idea.

[lo 1.5]

Top views


Bottom view


2. Manufacturing

Assignment 6:

Plan and make

[lo 1.5]

a) What kinds of tools do you require to roll out the clay to a thickness of 5 mm? (Choose from: wooden board, clay knife, rolling pin, and cake flour)

- a to roll out the clay smoothly.

- a to flatten the clay.

- a to scrape the dough from the rolling pin and wooden


- so that the clay does not stick to the rolling pin or board.

b) Measure out a square tile on a piece of cardboard with sides of 10 cm and cut it out. This will be your TEMPLATE. Place the template on the rolled out clay and cut six tiles from the clay. Also use the modelling knife to make yourself a handle and the bottom of your lid.

Now decorate the vertical planes of your container (4 tiles).

Cut 5 mm from both left and right sides of the two vertical tiles. Roughen the edges with a kebab-stick. You may also use water.

Working very carefully, join the different parts of the container in the following way:

  • Put the tile that will be at the bottom, on a large greased baking pan.
  • Use a kebab-stick and roughen 1 cm of the edges all around.
  • Place the decorated tiles upright on the bottom part. Ensure that the edges join properly and that the edges form proper rectangles.
  • Place the container where it can dry properly. If the clay can be baked, it may be baked in the oven according to the instructions.
  • Complete your lid according to your design and put it next to your container.
  • As soon as your container and lid have dried and have cooled down, you may paint it in one colour with poster paint. Then you can varnish it in a transparent varnish so that the article is sealed and the colour of the paint that you used can show up.


As early as the Stone age (12000 BC), when people made utensils and weapons from stone and bone, they started to manufacture utensils from clay, mainly to store food and water. Clay is a very old substance that was used to manufacture utensils and jewellery People used it because clay was readily available.

During the Bronze age (3000 BC) people started to melt metals so that they could make utensils and weapons. In those days people made many articles that were used daily, such as containers, mugs, pots, etc, from clay. They also made bricks and tiles from clay and built houses with the clay bricks. Archaeologists, who excavate antique civilisations, frequently find many objects and relics of clay, which prove that this is true.

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

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...

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
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?
