Freehand drawing

Freehand drawing

Now we are going to see how well you are able to draw without geometry instruments. This is called FREEHAND DRAWING. Use a sharp HB pencil for each of the following assignments.

Are you left-handed or right-handed?

Assignment 1:

[lo 1.3]

Draw parallel diagonal lines in each frame. Indicate the direction in which you draw the lines most easily with an arrow.


Is there any resemblance in which direction right-handed and left-handed learners find it the easiest to draw the lines?

Assignment 2:

[lo 1.3]

Draw parallel horizontal lines in each frame. Also indicate the direction in which you draw the lines most easily, with an arrow.


Is there any resemblance in the direction in which left-handed learners draw the lines the most easily?

Assignment 3:

[lo 1.3]

Draw parallel vertical lines in each frame. Indicate with an arrow the direction in which you draw the lines most easily.


How do most right-handed learners draw the lines most easily?

How do most left-handed learners draw the lines most easily?


Once you are able to draw horizontal and vertical lines, you must try to draw RIGHT ANGLES.

Assignment 4:

[lo 1.3]

Begin by drawing a vertical line and then draw a horizontal line at one of the points so that a right angle is formed. Draw fast and keep moving your hand while supporting it with the little finger if necessary. See how many right angles you are able to draw in a minute.


If you are capable of drawing right angles, you will be able to join right angles in order to form SQUARES, RECTANGLES and TRIANGLES.

If you draw a line, think only of its direction. Another line will determine its length.

Assignment 5a:

[lo 1.3]

Draw at least five squares of different sizes. (Experiment with the sequence in which you draw the sides by numbering the sides. Which way do you find the easiest? Circle it.)

Assignment 5b:

[lo 1.3]

Draw at least five rectangles of different sizes. (Experiment with the sequence in which you draw the sides by numbering the sides. Which way do you find the easiest? Circle it.)

Assignment 5c:

[lo 1.3]

Draw at least five triangles of different sizes. Experiment with the size of the angles.


The above-mentioned exercise is very important, since most of the objects that you will want to draw can be simplified and drawn as basic geometric figures. Therefore, in drawing a specific object you can use the geometric figures to form the framework.

Make a drawing of an object such as an animal by using an oval that developed from a rectangle

Let us practise drawing an oval or a circle with the aid of a square or a rectangle.


  1. Draw a square as in Assignment 5A.
  2. Mark half of each side with a small mark.
  3. Join the marks with a slight curve in order to form a circle.
  4. Draw the circle with a dark pencil.
  5. Erase the lines of the square carefully.

Assignment 6a:

[lo 1.3]

Draw at least three circles of different sizes by following the above-mentioned instructions.

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
But this is not salma it's Faiza live in lousvile Ky I garbage this so I am going collage with JCTC that the of the collage thank you my friends

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

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land

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