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.

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

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

why surface tension is zero at critical temperature
I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
Need to simplify the expresin. 3/7 (x+y)-1/7 (x-1)=
