In the summer of 1790, twenty-seven chiefs from the major tribes of the creek nation marched into New York City with one main purpose: to negotiate a peace treaty that would grant the Creek Nation the land they inherently deserved and to end the bloody war on the Southwestern Frontier. Seemingly leading the chiefs to New York City was the Native American version of George Washington, and his name was Alexander McGillivray. The McGillivray Moment was a point in time that we know very little about, for the official negotiations between the Creek Chiefs and our then loose federal government was oddly never recorded, so we can only speculate the topics they covered and their reactions to them by reviewing their final documents and papers. By not experiencing their negotiations firsthand, we seemingly miss out on important issues that may have preceded the final decisions, such as where the borderlines should be and the lifestyle adaptations the Native Americans would have had to assimilate into. We miss the chance to find out the true motives of Washington (if there ever was one) and to discover if McGillivray was as good of a leader as people made him out to be. If the chance to witness this event first hand was an option, some muddled episodes would have been cleared up. Maybe the bribe that the Spanish had offered McGillivray was really a threat more than anything and risked the safety of his tribes. We can’t really say that McGillivray was trying to become the auctioneer that offered his loyalty to the highest bidder nor can we say that he was the innocent bystander and accepted every declaration and insult to his people and land. Although Washington had good intentions for the Creek Nation, he was blindly throwing around this notion that the Native Americans would have to completely assimilate into American ways and traditions, thereby eradicating their own. He wanted them to change from their hunter-gatherer ways to a more peaceful, farming lifestyle....

...Sadie D. Hood Lab 8: Moment of Inertia Partner: Florence Doval Due 16 November 2011 Aims: To use a centripetal force apparatus to calculate the moment of inertia of rotating weights, using theories derived from ideas of energy transfer (Im = MR2 (g/2h)(t2-t02)) and point mass appoximation (m1r12 + m2r22). Set Up
Procedure First we measured the weights of two masses and wingnuts that secure them. Then we placed one of the masses on the very end of a horizontal...

...Moment of Inertia
1. Abstract
The goal of this study is to understand the transfer of potential energy to kinetic energy of rotation and kinetic energy of translation. The moment of inertia of the cross arm my group measured with the conservation of energy equation is: 0.01044 kg/m2 (with the mass of 15g), 0.01055 kg/m2 (with the mass of 30g), which is kind of similar to the standard magnitude of the moment of inertia of the cross arm: 0.0095...

...[pic] The flywheel of an engine has moment of inertia 2.5 kg•m2 about its rotation axis. What constant torque is required to bring it up to an angular speed of 400 rev/min in 8s, starting from at rest?
[pic] A solid, uniform cylinder with mass 8.25kg and diameter 15cm is spinning at 200 rpm on a thin, frictionless axle that stop the cylinder axis. You design a simple friction brake to stop the cylinder by pressing the brake against the outer rim with a normal force. The...

...Title: Mass Moment of Inertia
Objective:
To determine mass moment of inertia of a part using experimental method.
Theory:
If a part has been designed and built, its mass moment of inertia can be determined approximately by a simple experiment. This requires that the part be swung about any axis (other than one that passes through its CG) parallel to that about which the moment is sought and its period of pendular oscillation...

...THE MOMENTS OF A RANDOM VARIABLE
Definition: Let X be a rv with the range space Rx and let c be any known constant. Then the kth moment of X about the constant c is defined as
Mk (X) = E[ (X c)k ]. (12)
In the field of statistics only 2 values of c are of interest: c = 0 and c = . Moments about c = 0 are called origin moments and are denoted by k, i.e., k = E(Xk ), where...

Abstract
The moment of inertia of a complex system was determined through two different approaches. A string was tied to and tightly wound around a horizontal disc and then strung over a vertical pulley where the other end was then tied to a hanging weight. Underneath and attached through the...

...Introduction
A bending moment is simply defined as “the algebraic sum of the moments of all the forces which induces bending of an element” (1). The aim of this assignment is to work out the bending moment in a simply supported beam when different concentrated loads are applied to it. A simply supported beam is a structure, usually with a straight profile supported at the ends, often pinned on one side and simply supported or on a roller on the...

That performed laboratory session on bending moments and shear forces requires good understanding and sufficient knowledge of axial forces. Bending is defined as a behavior of any structural element that undergoes the external load, which is applied perpendicularly to longitudinal axis....
