16. Its function was first discovered by Otto Loewi. Curare permanently binds anddeactivates receptors for this neurotransmitter, while muscarine and nicotine are transientactivators. It also decreases bladder capacity and induces vasodilation. Binding to the
motor end plate causes release of calcium from the sarcomere, leading to myosin bindingand muscle contraction. FTP, name this neurotransmitter mainly responsible for neuron-muscle communication. Ach 17. It requires STC 75 or better building construction with non-parallel walls and gypsummountings for the roof deck, as well as fiberglass duct lining and at least two inches offiberglass behind the projection wall. Noise cannot exceed NC-30 per octave,reverberation and echo are minimized, and a proprietary transducer uses 24-dB-per-octave high-pass and low-pass filters to improve sound quality. For 10 points--identifythis film standard designed for ~Return of the Jedi~ and named for George Lucas's firstfilm. 18. The barometric distribution law and the spatial distribution law are applications ofthis concept. It states that the number of particles with energy in excess of the energy ofthe system equals the number of total molecules multiplied by “e” to the negative energyover gas constant times temperature. FTP, name this distribution that explains that at anyposition in space, the fraction of molecules of a sample of gas with a given speed is thesame regardless of the value of the potential energy at that point. 19. A polytropic equation for a reversible adiabatic isentropic process in terms ofpressure and volume. A fundamental equation of mathematical physics which describesthe spatial variation of a potential function for given source terms. A ratio whichmeasures the simultaneous change in elongation and cross-sectional area for a materialunder stress. For 10 points--these, along with a one-parameter approximation to theBernoulli distribution used to model the number of events occurring in a specific timeperiod, are all named for what mathematician? 20. In some accounts, Chinese food is substituted for Italian food, but the classicalstatement of the problem is as follows: Five philosophers are seated around a circulartable, and each has a plate of spaghetti, which requires two forks to eat. There is only onefork for each philosopher. When a philosopher wants to eat, she tries to pick up first theleft fork – waiting until it becomes available if it's in use -- and then the right. FTP namethis classic synchronization problem first posed by Dijkstra.
