Description Is the solution reversible with stakeholders? Does it honor basic rights? Does the solution produce the best benefit/harm ratio? Does the solution maximize utility? Does the solution express and integrate key virtues? Moral values realized? Moral values frustrated? Value conflicts resolved or exacerbated? Does the solution violate any code provisions? What are the resource, technical, and interest constraints that could impede implementation?

1. Group, team-written projects are to be 10-20 pages in length, double spaced, with standard 1-inch margins,and typewritten. This does not include documentation, appendices, and other notes.

2. It is essential that you carefully and fully document the resources that you have consulted. The mostdirect way to do this is to include numbered entries in a concluding section entitled, "Works Cited". These entries shouldprovide complete bibliographical information according to standard form (Chicago Manual of Style or the MLA Manual of Style). Theninsert the number of the entry in parenthesis in the text next to the passage that is based on it. (Example: "The self is a relationthat relates itself to its own self…." (4) The number "4" refers to the forth item in the "Works Cited" section at the end of yourpaper.)

3. Practical norm 5j of the CIAPR code of ethics sets forth the obligation of the professional engineer togive others due credit for their work. For this reason, plagiarism will not be tolerated in any form. Possible forms of plagiarisminclude but are not limited to the following:

  • Quoting directly from other sources without documenting (footnote or bibliography) and/or without using quotation marks.Claiming that this is an appendix will not excuse this action. Claiming ignorance will not excuse this action.
  • Using the ideas or work of others without giving due credit or proper acknowledgment. "Proper acknowledgment”,” in thiscontext, requires a standard bibliographical reference and the use of quotation marks if the material is being directly quoted.
  • If your paper relies exclusively or primarily on extensively quoted materials or materials closely paraphrased from the work ofothers, then it will not be credited as your work even if you document it. To make it your own, you have to summarize it in yourown words, analyze it, justify it, or criticize it.
  • You will not be credited for material that you translate from English to Spanish unless you add to it something substantial ofyour own.
  • In general, what you appropriate from another source must be properly digested, analyzed, and expressed in your own words. Ifyou have any questions on this, please ask me.
  • Any plagiarized document—one which violates the above rules—will be given a zero. You will be given a chance to make thisup, and the grade on the make-up project will be averaged in with the zero given to the plagiarized document. Since this is a groupgrade, everyone in the group will be treated the same, even though the plagiarizer may be only one person. Each member of the group isresponsible to assure that other members do not plagiarize in the name of the group. (Since the due date for the written project islate in the semester, this will probably require that I give the entire group, i.e., all members, an Incomplete.) Each member of thegroup will be held individually responsible in the above-described manner for the final content of the written report.

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

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?
