In my mathematical investigation, I have chosen the topic geometry, focusing on 2 generalisations and conjectures. The aim of this investigation is to further understand the topic I have chosen and to be able to apply it in my daily life. I decided on the topic geometry as I feel that I am more interested in this topic as the school has not fully covered this topic. *historical background of polyhedrons and triangles*
Euler’s Formula for polyhedron is named after Leonhard Euler (1707 - 1783) , a swiss mathematician as he was the first person who discovered F + V − E = in 1750. *historical background* Euler’s Formula for polyhedron proves that for any convex polyhedron which includes platonic solids, the number of faces (F) and vertices (V) is 2 more than the number of edges (E). In other words, Euler’s Formula for polyhedron helps identify solids that are convex polyhedrons and platonic solids. Polyhedrons are solids in which each face is a polygon which is a shape with straight sides, for*…show more content…*

After calculating F + V − E, each is 2. To prove any convex polyhedrons will get = 2, take a cube and add a edge from one corner to the opposite. After adding the edge, the number of faces is 7, number of vertices is 8 and number of edges is 13. As adding an edge does not make the solid intersect itself, should equal to 2. So, F + V − E = 7 + 8 − 13 and the answer would be 2 which is the expected outcome. Another way to prove the formula does not work for all solids is to take a Icosahedron and connect 2 opposite corners. Joining both corners, the solid will be a Icosahedron but it is not a convex polyhedron. As the soild is not a convex polyhedron should not be 2. So, F + V − E = 20 + 11 − 30, getting the answer as 1 which proves the generalisation F + V − E = 2 does not work. Therefore, the 2 is always replaced with

## Freezing Point Depression Experiment

912 Words | 4 PagesThis method is nearly always incorrect because it is difficult to obtain a perfectly saturated solution. In most cases, the solution remains unsaturated or it does not dissolve all the way. Also, for measuring the molar mass using freezing point depression for ionic compounds, it is important to determine the concentration of the particles of the solute, as the Van Hoff factor is not one, as it is for molecular solids. According to Atkins Peter, author and chemist of the book, Physical Chemistry says, “In predicting the expected freezing point of a solution, one must consider not only the number of formula units present, but also the number of ions that result from each formula unit, in the case of ionic compounds.” Therefore, this method works, but it is approximate and it works better for low solute concentrations. The presence of solute lowers the freezing point, which in turn affects the calculations to determine the molar mass of the unknown.

## The Knight's Tour Research Paper

849 Words | 4 PagesProof for (ii) If m = 1 or 2, you can clearly see that the board is not wide enough to construct a tour. And when m = 4, we can prove that there cannot be a knight’s tour using graph coloring. Two different colorings of a 4x6 board are shown in figure C. Figure C: A 4x6 graph. What is important to notice here is that every time you move from a red square, you can only land on a blue square, but the opposite is not the case if you move from a blue square. From the way the knight moves, we know that since there is no one-to-one correspondence between red/blue squares, it will not be possible to perform a closed

## Arguments Of Simulation Theory

1436 Words | 6 PagesWeatherson and other critics go on to say that even though we may have similarities to simulated people, and artificial intelligence, it is by no means conclusive evidence. Continuing on what could be considered evidence, people have theorized that proving simulation theory is false is impossible since one could always retreat to something like “they don’t want us to believe we’re simulated”. To prove its existence though, people look for compromises in nature, such as basic building blocks that are not made of anything else, or rounding errors such as those in the peaks of cosmic waves. However, one could also argue that our intelligent overseers predict and solve problems before they happen—even if they do not—they can always rewind the

## Spinach Lab Report

756 Words | 4 PagesSince the solvent is nonpolar, we would expect carotene to have the lowest Rf, then xanthophylls, and chlorophylls would have the highest. As discussed before, this is because chlorophylls are the most polar of the three and carotenes are the least polar of the three. Based on my results, I would say that the packing and running of the column was effective in separating the pigments as there were quite different Rf values for the original than for the other two colors and the band for the yellow was nothing like the bands for the green. There were no limitations in procedure which negatively affected the end results, so there is nothing I would change to it going

## What Is Jean Piaget Theory

769 Words | 4 PagesAdditionally, Piaget was introduced to epistemology at a young age by his godfather, who stressed the importance of studying philosophy and logic. After completing high school, Piaget studied natural sciences and obtained a Ph.D. at the University at Neuchâtel. Subsequently, he spent a semester at the University of Zurich studying a branch of psychology called psychoanalysis before graduating and moving to Paris, France. It was after teaching in Paris that Piaget began to recognize consistencies in the mental development of children by noticing that children of a certain age would get a series of answers wrong, while children

## Galaxies Lab Report

636 Words | 3 PagesIn addition, I realized that the spiral galaxies would not rotate as rigid bodies because the spiral galaxies have different shapes, which illustrates that speed is not proportional to the distance from the center. Moreover, figure 2 illustrates the rotation curve of NGC 3198, which has a flat curve. During the activity, I noticed the rotation curve of NGC 3198 is similar to the rigid body rotator because it measures the angular speed and the radius. As a result, the rotation curve of NGC 3198 illustrates that speed is not proportional to the distance from the

## Review Of Daniel Kahneman's 'Thinking, Fast And Slow'

1688 Words | 7 PagesHowever, this in result means that mere continuous exposure to 17×24 would generate the same effect, meaning that 17×24 could no longer be a System 2 action, per Kahneman’s explanation. Similarly, the only difference between recognizing one’s phone number, a System 1 task, and telling someone else your phone number, System 2, is the process of changing one’s thoughts into words, which is slow and artificially boosts the action time. This lack of a distinct difference brings to question the definitions of System 1 and System 2. At what point does a math equation pass from System 1 to System 2? If I must speak my answer to “2 + 2” does that turn it into a System 2 process?

931 Words | 4 PagesMQS61QJ Project 6 1. A convex n-gon has 5 times as many diagonals as sides. Fully explain how to find the value of n. In order to find the value of n, I first found the number of diagonals in a convex n-gon by applying the formula (n(n-3))/2 in which n stands for the number of sides. In a convex polygon, the number of diagonals form from a single vertex is 3 less than the number of sides, which is represented as n-3. Moreover, since there are n sides, it would give n(n - 3) diagonals.

## Unknown # 10 Essay

650 Words | 3 PagesStarch amylase testing was equally unsubstantial since the only amylase producing bacteria was ruled out after Gram staining. Unknown #10’s negative citrate test result was also unhelpful because E. coli is citrate negative and P. vulgaris is a variable citrate producer that can also be citrate negative. H2S production in the Kligler’s Iron Agar test ultimately proved that Unknown #10 was Proteus vulgaris. P. vulgaris is the only assigned bacteria that produces H2S, so when a black precipitate obscured the yellow butt of the Kligler’s Iron Agar slant, E. coli was ruled out. Not only did the H2S product confirmed that Unknown #10 was P. vulgaris, it confirmed P. vulgaris’ motility.

Each of these functions represents a system of non-linear equations in two variables. The program numerically solves these two by two systems of non-linear equations by using the inbuilt MatLab function f-solve. Since the probabilities, PNi are numerical solution computed by MatLab these values can be very very small numbers. To avoid these artifacts, the program replaces values of rho less than l_t by
