Conduct some research on an application that uses a polarizer and report on its use and
A great piece of technology that a polarizer is found in is a camera. Polarizers filter
unpolarized light, which means that they are a photogr
Chapter 23 Concept 2
Conduct some research on the differences and similarities between resistance and
impedance, and report your findings here with your reference(s). Explain how this
research has helped you understand the meaning behind impedance.
Chapter 20 Concept Question 1
Summarize in your own words the difference between electrical resistance and resistivity.
Provide examples to strengthen your case.
Electrical resistance is a property of material that is dependent on the cross-sectional area
Chapter 19 Concept 3
A Capacitor is a circuit element used for electrical energy storage. The advantage of a
capacitor over a battery, is the energy can be released in a much shorter time scale.
Provide an example of where a capacitor is used along with d
Chapter 27 Concept 3
Conduct some research on x-ray diffraction, and areas of science that have benefited from
this technique. Remember to include your citation(s).
X-ray diffraction is a method used to identify the structure of crystalline materials. Thi
Explain why Faraday's law is so pivotal in electricity. Describe examples to support your
To understand the importance of Faradays law it is important to understand that an emf
is not created with a flux that is constant in time. Faraday
Chapter 21 Concept Question 3
Conduct research on some magnetic materials. How would you explain the existence
of non-magnetic vs magnetic material to a non-scientist?
When talking about magnetic and nonmagnetic materials it is important to start
Pick either a magnifying glass, compound microscope, telescope or some other optical
device and describe its purpose and outline how it accomplishes this from an optical
point. Be sure to place the instrument in your subject line to claim it, an
