1) Understanding Material Properties
a. I imported the data into R, computed the engineering strain using
and plotted that data against stress.
b. I calculated the slope between each successive point on the graph. The
slopes were the same for the linear r

1) In terms of equivalent CO2 the 60-watt bulb costs 0.042 kg/functional unit
compared to the 0.0076 kg/functional unit of the fluorescent bulb. In terms of
mPts the 60-watt bulb is 0.0048 mPts/functional unit compared to the 4.7x10-4
mPt/functional unit

Enzyme Kinetics
Abstract
The points of this lab were, to analyze the way enzymes affect a reaction, to learn how to
perform this analysis, and to make a rudimentary instrument to measure similar affects.
The first exercise was done to prepare the experime

1) BONE PLASTICITY
a. Youngs Modulus = , only for the linear regime. According to the graph
the linear regime appears to be between the first three points. The average
slope of those points is 2.016*1010.
b. According to the graph, the yield stress is abo

HW 7
The Arduino is a programmable circuit board that has many input-output pins, which can
be used to communicate with many other electronics. The flexible nature of the device
enables it to be used in many disciplines and for wide range of applications.

Generalized linear modeling - Logistic regression
a. What is the tool used for? When should you use it?
This tool is used to generate a model for a binary response
variable and predictor variables.
b. What are the assumptions for the tool (if appropriate

Chi-squared
a. What is the tool used for? When should you use it?
The chi-squared test is a goodness of fit test that compares observed
values with expected values. It should be used when comparing
observed categorical data to their expected values.
b. W

Linear regression
a. What is the tool used for? When should you use it?
This is used to model a linear relationship between a response variable
and a predictor variable.
b. What are the assumptions for the tool (if appropriate)?
A linear relationship ex

ANOVA - Multifactor, Nested design
a. What is the tool used for? When should you use it?
This tool is used to determine whether or not a relationship exists
between a response variable and multiple categorical predictor
variables. Levels (categories) of

Descriptive statistics - central tendencies, dispersion, confidence, visualization (box plots,
histograms, quantile plots, linear plots)
a. What is the tool used for? When should you use it?
Used for visualizing and quantifying data and its behavior. Thi
