Module 12

Transport

Transport

Types of transport

Transport is needed to move people and goods from one place to the other. Our parents must get to their work and we must get to school. Fresh bread and milk must be delivered daily to the café / superette. Postal items must be transported worldwide everyday.

Activity 1

To compile a list of different kinds of transport [lo 2.2, 3.2]

Compile a list of all the means of transport that you can think of, and indicate those that you make use of.

1.transport statistics

Consult the learners in your class/grade for the following investigation.

Activity 2

To classify information under headings [lo 1.2, 1.6]

Activity 3

To compile a graph [lo 1.7]

Compile a graph by using the above totals.

2.roads

To move people and goods successfully from one point to another, an extensive road network is needed. For busy routes roads should preferably have two or even three lanes, while single lane roads are suitable for light traffic in residential areas. Roads must be well maintained.

Activity 4

To answer questions about a road in your town [lo 2.1]

Identify one road in your town/city and answer the following questions about the road:

How wide and how long is the road?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

Are there road markings on the road?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

Which places does the road connect?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

What type of road is it (national, regional, local)?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

Who uses the road?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

What is the name of the road?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

Mainly what kinds of vehicles use the road?

…………………………………………………………………………………….

Who is responsible for the maintenance of this road?

………………………………………………………………………………………..

Activity 5

To draw your own road map [lo 1.5]

Identify an area around the road you identified in the previous activity and draw a simple road map of the area. Remember to include the names of streets and other important landmarks.

Assessment

Learning outcome 1: geographical enquiry

The learner will be able to use enquiry skills to investigate geographical and

environmental concepts and processes.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

1.2 organises information under given headings;

1.6 uses information from sources (including own observations) to answer questions about people and places (e.g. “Why is it like that?”).

Learning outcome 2: geographical knowledge and understanding

The learner will be able to demonstrate geographical and environmental knowledge and understanding.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

  • describes the features of the local settlement, including land uses, and compares them with examples from other places;
  • describes the importance of access to resources and services for people living in settlements.

Learning outcome 3: exploring issues

The learner will be able to make informed decisions about social and environmental issues and problems.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

3.2 identifies the factors that influence why some people have better access to resources compared to others in a particular context.

Questions & Answers

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

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
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
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
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
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
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.
Ali Reply
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
