Ohm's Law shows the relationship between the voltage (V), current (I) and resistance (R). It can be written in three ways: V = I × R         or        I =V/R     or    R = V/I The resistance (R) of a material depends on   Its length, cross-sectional area, The resistivity, and Resistance also depends on temperature, usually...

  • Series and Parallel Circuits Serve Different Purposes in Households

    3. Series and parallel circuits serve different purposes in households 1. Identify the difference between series and parallel circuits Series is when the components line up after one another, thus there is only 1 path. In parallel there are multiple paths. Advantages of using parallel circuitry over series circuitry in household wiring include: * You can have some devices on and others off at the same time. * If one device fails the others still work. * All devices receive the...

  • Parallel Computing

    Chapter 1: Parallel Computing at a Glance 1 1 Parallel Computing at a Glance It is now clear that silicon based processor chips are reaching their physical limits in processing speed, as they are constrained by the speed of electricity, light, and certain thermodynamic laws. A viable solution to overcome this limitation is to connect multiple processors working in coordination with each other to solve grand challenge problems. Hence, high performance computing requires the use of Massively...

  • Hyperbolic Geometry and Omega Triangles

    HYPERBOLIC GEOMETRY AND OMEGA TRIANGLES Hyperbolic geometry was first discovered and explored by Omar Khayyam in the 9th century and Giovanni Gerolamo Saccheri in the 15th century. Both were attempting to prove Euclid’s parallel postulate by proving the concept of hyperbolic geometry to be inconsistent, and ironically they discovered it to be a new type of geometry. It wasn’t until the 19th century that it became fully developed with help from Karl Friedrich Gauss, Janos Bolyai, and Nikolai...

  • Parallel Computing

    ABSTRACT Nowadays, commercial applications are most used on parallel computers. A computer that runs such an application has to be able to process large amount of data in sophisticated ways. We can say with no doubt that commercial applications will define future parallel computers architecture. But scientific applications will still remain important users of parallel computing technology. Trends in commercial and scientific applications are merging as commercial applications perform more sophisticated...

  • Close Reading: a Sentimental Journey

    ‘A Sentimental Journey’ A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy was the second and final novel of Laurence Sterne, published barely a month before his death in 1768. The novel first popularised the travel writing genre and describes the journey through France and to Italy undertaken by Mr Yorick, the parson who first appeared in Sterne’s first and best known novel, The Life And Opinions of Tristiam Shandy, Gentleman. As its title suggests, A Sentimental Journey is a piece of sentimental...
