A Study on Thermodynamics
According to principles of Thermodynamics, the system tries to go to the state of minimum energy. Of course, we would have to assume that: 1.the system is not tight(so that energy may escape to some other system). The principle of conservation of energy has to be followed. 2.the system is not in equilibrium and is trying...

The Invasion of Privacy Laws
Many laws today are considered “stupid laws” and go against our daily rights. As Americans we should be able to do what we want and not have to tell anyone else what we are doing or explain why. The history behind these “stupid laws” is just as important as the “stupid” invasion of privacy laws themselves. These laws shou...

An Introduction to the Second Law of Thermodynamics
The Second Law of Thermodynamics The Second Law of Thermodynamics has several variations. One version says that some heat is always wasted when converting heat into mechanical energy. In other words all heat can not be completely converted into mechanical energy. Another states that heat normally flows from high to l...

Abstract
The purpose in experimenting with computer simulations was to compare oxygen consumption rates in different mammalian subclasses. We compared monotremes, marsupials, and placental mammals at both warm and cold temperatures. The results supported our hypothesis that when temperature increased, met...

An Analysis of the Concept Behind the Second Law of Thermodynamics
The second law of thermodynamics states that energy transitions are imperfect. No matter what, energy is lost. In machines an 75% loss of energy is considered average. In biological reactions there is usually a 60% loss. Since all reactions are constantly losing a percentage of the energy they give, it is necessary to have...

Theories Explaining the Existence of Black Holes in the Universe
Our solar system consists of ten planets revolving around the Sun. The Sun serves as a magnet that uses its gravitational pull to hold the solar system together. If the Sun were to disappear, what would hold the planets together? The answer might be a black hole. A black hole is a theorized body whose gravity is so strong t...
