Data to be turned in by 1500 on 25 march

Each team must slide the following data under Lee's door in the VFU guesthouse (Room 203) by 1500 on Wednesday, 25 March so that it can be copied and distributed in class. This means the data must be clearly labeled and legible, and each sheet should include the names of your team and your cross-section number. Failure to submit data on time, or to submit it in a form that requires additional verbal explanation, will result in a substantial penalty for all team members.

Site 1:

(1) A plot of your cross-section that includes: (a) the water level at the time of your survey; (b) the estimated bankfull stage if that can be identified (we will determine this in the field); (c) the measured discharge in cms (cubic meters per second); and (d) the date, time, and type of current meter used to measure discharge.

(2) The pebble count should be plotted on A4 paper using a semi-log scale (i.e., diameter in millimeters on a log scale on the x axis and percent finer than with an arithmetic scale of 0 to 100 percent on the y axis). It goes without saying that the graph should be properly labelled (names, cross-section number, axes, etc.). Give the size of the D16, D50, and D84 particles to the nearest millimeter, and use dotted lines to show how you obtained these values. Also indicate whether you used a gravelometer or a ruler to measure the particle size.

Site 2:

(1) A plot of your cross-section. This should show: (a) the water level at the time of your survey; (b) the estimated bankfull stage on each side of your cross-section; (c) the current water level; and (d) the difference in vertical elevation between the current water level and your estimate of bankfull for each side of the stream.

Data to be compiled, calculated, and brought to class on 28 march

The following data should be compiled and calculated prior to the beginning of class on 28 March. In this class period we will review how the data should be presented, compare the results from each group, and discuss the reasons for any observed differences. For this process to work, you must have all of the following information compiled or calculated BEFORE coming to class.

Site 1:

(1) Number of verticals used for your discharge measurement and the percent of flow in each vertical;

(2) Measured velocities at the deepest point in the stream using each of the methods listed under task #3 in the section on field data collection;

(3) Calculated discharge using Manning's formula;

(4) Back-calculated Manning's "n" (rearrange Manning’s equation to solve for n, and plug in your measured discharge and cross-section data);

(5) Stream classification according to both Rosgen and Montgomery-Buffington, and the values for each of the criteria in the Rosgen classification at each site to the extent they can be identified (i.e., bankfull width; bankfull depth; width/depth ratio; entrenchment ratio; etc.);

(6) D16, D50, and D84 for your cross-section;

(7) Stream gradient as measured with the clinometer.

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.

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