Activity 2

Select a product from the list on the previous page. it may be a good idea to choose the one you know best because you have to do a research task according to the set of criteria that is given below. your research results must be presented in the form of a poster or a booklet. [lo 3.3]

The crop i have chosen:

  • Location of farming in South Africa (You could provide a map)
  • Reason for this location (rainfall, climate, water supply, distance from consumer, vegetation)
  • Size of farm
  • Lay-out of farm (sketch)
  • Seasonal activities (e.g. tilling the soil, sowing in the autumn, etc.)
  • Steps in the processing of the harvested product
  • Final result after product has been processed for the shop shelves (examples of packaging)
  • Importance of this product for South Africa (economic benefit / job creation)

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:

1.1 identifies information from various sources (maps, atlases, books) [finds sources].

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:

3.3 suggests ways to improve access to resources in a particular context [makes choices].

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.
