Introduction In experiment number four Mr. Randy allowed the class to drill cores samples, we also viewed the infrastructure of the cores through a scanning electron microscope. In this experiment I learned that there are many critical details in a core sample that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Discussion In experiment number four the class was split in half; one half of the class would drill cores while the other half viewed core samples through the scanning electron microscope. First, I drilled cores samples from berea sandstone and shale blocks that were in the drilling laboratory. Each core that was drilled had to be very symmetrical and the cores could only be 1 to 1.5 inches long.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
