Unformatted text preview: Profile of Our Class Do all scientists wear white lab coats? ● No...some I have seen look like normal individuals out and about doing their everyday activities. Do all scientists wear white lab coats? ● ...For example, if a scientist was obeserving a lion in the wild, a lab coat will only become a problem when trying to escape the hungry or angry lion. Since the lab coat is more likely to get caught in a branch or the lion can clamp on the end of the coat and drag the scientist away. <---- Just something to think about when putting on a lab coat in an life threating environment. Do all scientists wear white lab coats? ● I don't think so. It depends on what their field is. I've only seen scientists wearing the white lab coats if they are experiementing at the lab. I wonder if astronomers wear lab coats at their labs eventhough what they do all day is looking into the telescope (in my understanding). Do all scientists wear white lab coats? ● They most certainly should. If they didn't...then all of those TV shows and movies would be wrong. And I don't think I could handle that. Reading quiz feedback Do eggs really balance on their ends on the equinox? In addition to answering yes or no, what is important or interesting about this fact? ● The answer is yes. But, unsurprisingly, this feat can be accomplished on any day of the year and it is only a superstition that the the sun and moons' alignment has any affect on the physical aspects of an egg. ● Eggs do not balance on their ends on the equinox because equinox refers to sunlight hitting both hemispheres equally. This fact is important and interesting because it represents that you must have evidence in order to accept any scientific claim or else it will most likely be false. No, I don't think that eggs really balance on their ends on the equinox for many reasons. The shape of the egg is hard to balance because it needs to balance a lot of weight on a very small surface area. This also makes weight distribution a problem because on sight offset of weight on either side of the egg can make the egg become unbalanced. I think that this fact also depends on the physical state of the egg; whether it is hard boiled or raw. I think that if it was hard boiled, there is a chance that the egg can balance on its equinox because the material inside the egg is solid. Therefore a shift in weight is less likely to occur. It is more likely to occur in a raw egg because the liquid matter inside it moves around a lot more, shifting weight. How do you distinguish science from pseudoscience? ● Some thing is considered science if it attempts to develop testable explanations for observed natural phenomena. Pseudoscience comes into play when explanations are not testable or when a person sticks to his theory even when it has been tested and fails to hold up to reality. How do you distinguish science from...
