The Cold Equations This short story by Tom Godwin is a very sentimental and lesson learning story. Briefly, it is about a ship on a designated mission which encounters a problem because the pilot on the ship encounters a stowaway, a young girl, and every stowaway found on board must be jettisoned, it was the law and there was absolutely no appeal. Marilyn, the stowaway’s name, was simply a teen and all she wanted was to see her brother whom she hadn’t seen in over 10 years she really meant no harm but she chose to ignore the warning sign in front of the ship. The EDS ships were only equipped with a certain amount of fuel that would reach them only to their designated destination, h amount of fuel would not power an EDS with mass of m plus x safely to it’s destination. Although it was very saddening that the pilot had to kill Marilyn, there was nothing else that could be done. If he would have let her stay on board he would die along with the other 6 men waiting on the EDS for the cure to their survival. In my opinion, his decision was justified, it was the law and he had done all he could do to help the poor girl but it wasn’t merely enough. The first reason to believe that the pilot’s decision was justified was because it was very logical and ethical. He had not other choice it was the law to kill a stowaway on board, no matter if it was a beautiful girl, beauty had no partake in this scenario it wasn’t like Earth. The pilot really did care about Marilyn’s life and he really did not want to kill her but, if it wouldn’t have been done the lives of many others would also have been gone. Although he did not want, he would have had no other choice. Either way there really was no win because if he would have let Marilyn stay on board and not jettisoned her, in the long run she would still have died along with the pilot and the other men counting on the EDS with the fever serum it was carrying. The second reason to believe the pilot’s...

...portrayal of the setting and atmosphere in The ColdEquations, the reader undoubtedly experiences the lonesome and cold feeling occurring in the story. The authors brilliant use of figurative language and imagery illustrating Bartons occupation produces a character deficient of personality and feeling. This genius utilization of words forces the reader to experience a sense of urgency amidst the bitter conditions within the story. The...

...Why It Couldn’t Be
The short story ColdEquations by Tom Godwin takes place on a ship called EDS. The space cruiser is piloted by a man named Barton. He has an order of killing the stowaway who snuck onto the ship because the weight on the EDS is too much for the ship to handle. In the process of hunting down the stowaway, he realizes it was a young innocent girl named Marilyn. Once Barton understands what kind of person Marilyn is, he doesn’t kill her...

My Mathematical Equations
This paper will show two mathematical problems, the first is “To estimate the size of the bear population on the Keweenaw Peninsula, conservationists captured, tagged, and released 50 bears. One year later, a random sample of 100 bears included only 2 tagged bears. What is the conservationist's estimate of the size of the...

How Cold Affects The Body
The body tries to maintain body temperature by
vasoconstriction and shivering.
Shivering is the body’s main involuntary defense against the cold
producing body heat by forcing muscles to contract and relax
rapidly.
Vasoconstriction is the tightening of blood vessels
Vasoconstriction occurs in the uncovered skin when it is exposed
to cold...

...Quadratic Equation:
Quadratic equations have many applications in the arts and sciences, business, economics, medicine and engineering. Quadratic Equation is a second-order polynomial equation in a single variable x.
A general quadratic equation is:
ax2 + bx + c = 0,
Where,
x is an unknown variable
a, b, and c are constants (Not equal to zero)
Special Forms:
* x² = n if n < 0, then x has no real value...

...Quadratic equation
In elementary algebra, a quadratic equation (from the Latin quadratus for "square") is any equation having the form
where x represents an unknown, and a, b, and c represent known numbers such that a is not equal to 0. If a = 0, then the equation is linear, not quadratic. The numbers a, b, and c are the coefficients of the equation, and may be distinguished...

...Upstream: 60 = 6(b-c)
Downstream: 60 = 3(b+c)
There are now two separate equations: 60 = 6b - 6c and 60 = 3b + 3c
Solve both equations for b: b = 10 + c b = 10 - c
Now make both equations equal each other and solve for c: 10 + c = 10 - c 2c = 0 c = 0
The speed of the current was 0 mph Now, plug the numbers into one of either the original equations to find the speed of the boat in still water.
