    Q2. The reason for the difference in blurring between both the horizontal and vertical lines was due to astigmatism being present. Astigmatism is an off axis aberration which caused the vertical line to appear clearer when observing the USAF target. This occurs when the beam of light converges more rapidly along the tangential direction compared to that of the sagittal direction, thus changing the beam profile from a circular one to a more elliptical one. Because the tangential focus is reached before

    331 Words  | 2 Pages

    Topographic Factors The elevation of Delta Natural Reserve is 5m and SWMA is 3m (Vancouver International Airport). The elevation of Watershed park on the other hand is 64m. As the elevation increases, there are fewer species and less dense coverage of the area because of the colder conditions, however, this is not a key factor in the difference in vegetation as the areas are within a 5 minutes drive from each other. Delta Nature Reserve and SWMA were flatter in comparison to Watershed Park,

    I need to find the area of rectangle ABCD. I know that ABCD is a rectangle with diagonals intersecting at point E. Segment DE equals 4x-5, segment BC equals 2x+6, and segment AC equals 6x. I predict that To find the area of rectangle ABCD I need to find out the base and height of the rectangle. The first step is to find what x equals. Since I know the intersecting line segments AC and DB are congruent that means when I times the equation 4x-5 for segment DE by two it will equal the equation

    For this examination, the continued context of a simulation will be used. In function one, the relevant domain is from 0 seconds to approximately 2.165 seconds. Negative values in the context of a projectile make no sense, as it suggests negative time. Going beyond 2.165 seconds is also nonsensical, as it suggests the projectile is driving into the ground. Even if that were possible, a projectile would likely meet some sort of resistance and would not be accurately modelled by the function. The function

We started off by watching a video on artistic choice that talked about color choices, lines, forms, shapes, textures, value, and space. After that, we were all given the same equations and were told to make points out of them. We chose 0, 2, 4, and 6 for the x-axis and we kept them the same for all the eleven equations. Before we plotted the points we had to figure out where our origin and scale factor

  • Half Circle Outline

    1. Make a protractor. To do this, use a compass to draw the outline of a half circle on a firm poster board. 2. Cut the new half circle out. 3. Using a pencil and a protractor, label the degrees from 0 to as far as the half circle goes. 4. Cut out a small half circle on the straight edge of the new protractor, this will be the spot where the nose goes. 5. Next, put a colored ( does not matter what color) tack at 0 degrees. This creates a focus point to ensure the person is not accidentally looking

    The endolymph in the semi-circular canals moves at the opposite direction to the rotation of the body. The three axes the semi-circular canals can detect angular rotation are the anterior vertical, the posterior vertical and the horizontal planes. When angular rotation occurs in any of these planes, the endolymph in the semi-circular canals moves the opposite way to the body movement, causing the cupula to be moved and therefore the hair cells in the semi-circular canals will also be pushed in the
