  • Refrigerated Rail Cars - 335 Words
    Refrigerated rail cars, also known as reefers, are insulated boxcars that keep their cargo at a regulated temperature, usually around 2 or 3 degrees Celsius. The first reefers relied on ice to cool their load, but now diesel-powered refrigeration units have replaced the ice as a more effective way to cool the load. The refrigerated rail car was patented by J.B. Sutherland in Detroit, Michigan in 1867. He designed an insulated car with ice at either end. This allowed air to come in from the top,...

    Ice Water Fish Vs. Room Temp Fish INTRODUCTION Fish, being an aquatic animal, has a respiratory system that is different from animals that live on land. It is capable of breathing underwater, without coming up for oxygen. Fish are able to breathe underwater due to a breathing organ known as gills; which is made up of thin feathery sheets of tissue membrane containing many blood vessels through which oxygen passes allowing fish to breathe (Edmonson 2006). Fish breathe by the process of...

    Melting Ice * Salt is routinely used to make icy roads and sidewalks safe in the winter. As soon as the salt comes in contact with the ice, the surface of the ice starts to melt. This only works, however, if the temperature outside is at or near freezing. If it is too cold outside, the ice itself becomes very dry and salt is not as effective in melting it. Salt Reduces Freezing Temperature of Water * Salt works by lowering the freezing temperature of water. Salt water needs to reach a...

    Cheyenne Kenny September 29, 2014. Biology Properties Of Water Adhesion How does temperature change affect surface tension? As the temperature of a liquid increases, its surface tension decreases. When water heats up, the movement of its molecules disrupts the imbalanced forces on the surface of the water and weakens its sheet-like barrier of tightly bound molecules, thereby lowering the surface tension. This is why hot water is more effective when cleaning; its low...
