Interesting proof approximately America’s most well liked normal landmarks give you the spine for this fun-filled number of actions that copy the natural strategies that shaped them. Interspersed with heritage, factoids, and sidebars, this enticing reference explores medical options, reminiscent of the formation of coral reefs and the reason for volcanic eruptions.

In 1912, German meteorologist Alfred Wegener released his groundbreaking concept of continental displacement. His idea proposed that the continents have been as soon as a unmarried land mass yet had slowly moved aside over hundreds of thousands of years. This publication examines the medical technique at the back of Wegener's conception and the way it challenged triumphing perspectives of the time.

Compare the gaits of a professional basketball center and a young child. Hang two pendulums of equal length (about 2 feet), and with equal weight bobs, side by side from a chair, tabletop, or door frame. They should be about 15 cm (6 in) apart (see Figure 11). As you can see, they will swing with the same period. Connect the two pendulums with a thin stick or pencil. Wind each pendulum’s string around the stick once about a foot above the bobs. Pull one bob to the side and let go. Notice how it transfers its motion to the other bob because of their connection.
Two other terms that are often used in scientific experiments are dependent and independent variables. The dependent variable here is acceleration, because it is the one you measure as an outcome. It may depend upon mass. Mass is the independent variable. It is the thing that the experimenter intentionally changes. After the data is collected, it is analyzed to see whether the hypothesis was true or false. Often, the results of one experiment will lead you to a related question, or they may send you off in a different direction.
Does the initial speed of a ball make a difference as to whether the ball obeys Newton’s first law? Try different angles of launching to test your hypothesis. Construct your own version of Galileo’s experiment in which a ball is rolled down a slope and up another one. The two slopes should be close to each other. You may use any ball. Keep a record. What can you do to improve the experiment to get the ball to rise upward to the maximum height? How well do your methods work? How did Newton build upon Galileo’s work to develop the first law?
