...challenge in designing brake systems. For measurement, a tribometer is an instrument that measures friction on a surface and a profilograph is a device used to measure pavement surface roughness. Friction is also used to heat and ignite matchsticks.
Anybody that moves, in one way or another, experiences an opposing force either from air or from another body in contact. This force tends to retard the motion of the body. The presence of friction between contact surfaces generates sound, light, and heat energy. It is also referred to as the retarding force or even drag force in the form of air resistance.
Frictional force is found to be directly proportional to the normal force (N) which is mathematically expressed as:
f ∝N
f=kN (Equation 1)
The coefficient of friction (µ) takes the place of k which is the constant of proportionality. Thus:
f=µN (Equation 2)

Figure 3. Angle of Repose
269061011472000If the body slides down the incline due to its own weight, the angle between the horizontal and the incline is called angle of repose 𝜽, as shown in Figure 3. In the previous experiment, if we are measuring along the y-axis, the formula will be
ΣFy=0, f=Wcosθand if we are measuring along the x-axis, the formula will be
ΣFx=0, f=Wsinθ.
The coefficient of friction is equal to the tangent of the angle of repose.
µ=fN=WsinθWcosθ, µ=tanθ(Equation 3)
In this experiment, we should be able to determine the coefficient of...

The case between Beauty and Stylish involves concept of a valid contract, pre-contractual statements, express term and misrepresentation.
A valid contract is established between Beauty and Stylish when an offer is accepted and there is intention for both parties to create legal relations. An offer refers to the expression of willingness of the offerer to be contractually bound by an agreement if his or her offer is properly accepted. It has to be clear and certain in terms. It must also be communicated to the offeree before it is being accepted. In addition, the acceptance has to be unqualified, unconditional and made by a positive act. In the case of Beauty and Stylish, a positive act refers to the signing of the contract. All terms of the offer must be accepted without any changes and cannot be subjected to any condition, taking effect only upon fulfillment of that condition. When Beauty and Stylish enter into the agreement, they must intend to bind and bound legally to each other by their agreement. This is the intention to create legal relations between two parties. In the meanwhile, this contract must possess consideration. A contract must therefore be a two-sided affair, with each side providing or promising to provide something of value in exchange for what the other is to provide.
Every contract, whether oral or written, contain terms. The terms of a contract set out the rights and duties of the parties. Terms are the promises and undertakings given by each...

Professor Donna Mugavero Schneider
Urban Life Properties, LLC is the largest urban commercial real estate investment company in New Jersey. The primary method of communication for Urban Life Properties, LLC is through mobile technology, such as email, iPad, and cellular devices. In this industry, it is important to be aware of non-verbal communication. When leasing commercial properties, it is very important to study a person’s body language. Through body language, the leasing agent can read whether or not a person is serious and committed to the transaction. Furthermore, the first impression is very important because it sets the tone for the transaction. In urban neighborhoods, it is imperative to have cultural awareness to reduce the chances of offending clients. Negotiations and conflicts are dealt in a manner that results in unhappy tenants. Meetings are held weekly and at times daily.
Although understanding people’s body language in this industry is extremely important, this practice is not given the proper attention within the company culture. When leasing stores in urban neighborhoods, there are clients of all different ethnicities. There are some employees that are not aware of cultural norms. This company is not flexible when negotiating, for instance, they add unexpected charges to the tenants after the lease has been signed....
