  1. Group Oral Discussion

Machines have been invented to make our lives easier. However, if we do not follow instructions, we can cause more problems for ourselves.

Divide the class into five groups and, in your groups, read the passage. Each group gets four questions to discuss. Each group gets an opportunity to stand before the class. They pose their specific questions to the rest of the class and control the feedback.

(Peter and Sally were staying at home while their mother was in hospital. Daddy was at work during the day and they spent their time at school.)

The laundry

After school on the third day since their mother has been away there seemed to be a little laundry crisis. Sally, the elder of the two, insisted on wearing clean clothes every day as her mother had taught her. Mom was not there to do the washing. When they opened their cupboards their favourite clothes were not there. They then realised that since Mom has been away, nobody did the washing. They also knew that Dad would need a clean shirt for Monday. Fortunately it was Friday and they decided that they would talk to Dad and tell him that they would do the washing. After they spoke to their father, they decided to do the washing the next day. There was no school on Saturday and they could therefore join hands and do the washing as well as cleaning the house.

On Saturday they divided the work amongst themselves and each one had a job to do. Sally's job was to do the laundry. She had been watching her mother doing the washing and said she knew how to do it. She took the loads of washing and divided them into different groups: white clothes, mixed, and the dark clothes. She then took the washing powder and added it to the machine. She also added the fabric softener. She then went away to do something else. When she came back, there was a bigger crisis than the one on Friday. There was soap all over the place. She called her dad to come and have a look. Something was wrong with the machine. Her father then asked her which washing powder she used. She indicated which one and her father then showed her that the powder that she used was for washing by hand. They then went and added the correct washing powder. Sally was glad that her father could help.

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
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.

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes

I'm interested in nanotube

preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
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?
