Peter: Why don’t you get a decent job for a change?

Dick: But I like my job.

Peter: Look, digging garden is not a job for a University graduate.

Dick:But the money’s not bad and there’s plenty of fresh air.

Peter:If I were you, I’d go on some kind of course – teaching, accountancy.

Dick:Accountancy? Anything but that. It’s too boring.

Peter:Come on, you really must think of the future. Why don’t you just write a few application froms?

Dick:I’ll tell you what. I’d really like to be a doctor.

Peter:Well, you should think very seriously about that. It means a lot of study, and then working all sorts of hours.

Dick:Yes, may be. But the idea appeals to me.

Peter:Well then, you ought to get more information about it as soon as possible.

Oral Test Performance of 10 Second-Year students

Student 1:

Good morning everyone. Today I’m in front of you to tell you something about roles of a woman. People said woman are...is heart of the world, so there’s no woman the world will not exist. In my opinion, woman is always play an important role in our life, especially in modern life. First, woman help and teach the children. Although the scientists can make a child from test-tubes, but I think the role of a woman can be replaced. Woman... A child is bad or good depend much on the way the mother teach you. If you are a bad mother, your children is not good. And if you are a good mother, your children may be good at other people. .... He will do... He will do his ... well. And the second, woman is always good at doing the housework. It’s difficult for men to do all things in his house. But I think it’s very easy for a woman to cook some meals, to sweep her house and to take ... of people in her family. ... She not only know how to do it but also know how to do it well. She makes her house more ... and neatly. She takes care of whole her family with good meals. And maybe there is a woman in the house, the house.... the family may be better. Third, in our society I think woman has the same position as men. She can do anything her husband can do. For example, go to university and her profession or and become independent. She shares money to improve her... her family life. She helps her husband with his work. She share all people in work and in .... with her husband. She ... she.... People often say that behind a successful man is a good woman. And I think it’s difficult for men to successful without having the help of his wife. These are the reasons why I said that women are always play an important role in our life, especially in modern life. Thank you for your listening.

Questions & Answers

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?

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

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
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?
