During this investigation we will achieve to discover how math can be applied to our everyday lives by using what we have learned in our math class to find out data. |

Finding the original equation:
y=ax2vertex= (0,0)point= (20,5)

35/25= a
a=.0125
1) Considering the map assigned to your team determine the position of the car when the headlights illuminate the sculpture.

Position= (-65,52.8)
By using the program graphmatica to be more accurate, we found out that in the parabola representing the road (y=.0125x2) the point where the car’s headlights illuminate the sculpture, which the sculpture is in the coordinate (-20,-20), is in the position of (-65, 52.8) because the car is moving to the right and this means that is going to the positive side of the graph.

2) Determine the equation of the line followed by the light of the car when the headlights hit the sculpture

To find out the equation of the tangent line we first found the point where the car illuminated the sculpture which is (-65, 52.81), then we found the derivative of the original equation y=.0125x2 and the derivative is y'=.025x . After finding the derivative we needed to find the slope of the tangent line so we used the equation of the derivative and replaced the x with the x of the position and after solving it we got the slope of y’= -1.625x, and to finish the equation we added the y of the position to finally get y=-1.625x-52.81

3) Now determine the position of the car when the tail lights hit the sculpture.

Position (30,11.25)

By using the program graphmatica to get more accurate results, we found out that in...

...Changing the Rate of Reaction
PART 1: PARTICLE SIZE
Question: How does changing the particle size of marble (CaCO3) affect the rate of reaction when it is added to hydrochloric acid (HCl)?
Hypothesis:
If I change the particle size of marble to test how to change the rate of a chemical reaction, than the chemical reaction with the smallest marble particles will produce CO2 the quickest because the larger the surface...

Introduction:
Organic chemistry. Two quantities one could measure with the presence of organic chemicals are chemical equilibrium and rate of reaction. Chemical equilibrium is the ratio between the forward and reverse process of a reaction. This is represented by the equation: K = products / reactants. When a...

..."There is nothing permanent in life except change," said philosopher Heraclitus. Others have called change or variety as 'the spice of life'. So, changes (shuffle or reshuffle) in the government from time to time should come as no surprise to anyone, though changes in the political arena are often viewed with suspicion.
Change is in the very nature of being. Every new day is different from the previous day. Body...
