- It means three light are connected in a series. Then if I unscrew one battery from the circuit, the left lightbulbs are going to be off, because three bulbs and the batteries were connected in a series. Also, if I connect the ammeters in the space that the lightbulb was located, the amphere s measured. It means that the electricity they are connected in a series, because electricity doesn’t flow when some part is ruined are broken.
- Even though, we unsrew the light bulb that was parallel with other light bulbs, the other left light bulbs are not going to be turned off.
- The light bulbs that are in parallel get weaker current than the series one, so series one is going to be more powerful than the paralle one.
- If we unscrew the light bulb from the parallel, we could say that the circuit is series. Therfore, it is going to be same. Self-Assessment-CC-District-document-Gee-1di4oq1-w9gzm9
Hi. I’m Yoon, and I am hired to renovate my home.
- DEFINING:I have tried lots of things to save energy. Therfore, I need to find some shortage that is the cause to splurge energy. Then, I have tried to figure out how can I solve this issue to reduce the amount of energy that we have been wasting.
2. DISCOVER: I found that the wall of house(outside and inside both of them) are way seriousely outworn. Thus, I thought how could I mend this wall, and how could I make this wall that could save energy. Also, I noticed that there are no water pipe to get rid of water from the roof that has filed, so I aksed myself, how could I solve this problem, and how could I save energy from this.
3. DREAM: I can eliminate all the wall that have rotten, and then I will refill them with pebbles, mud, soil, cotton, and newspaper. I should put mixture of soil and pebbles between two old concrete walls. Then, I attached some cotton on the wall. And then, I attach cotton on it, and apply tons of soil on it. Then let them dry. Also, I can install 4 water pipe on each side of the roof. The thing is that, I will install turbin to get energy from the potential energy of the flow of water. As it rains a lot except summer it will provide lots of energy to use.
4. DELIEVER: After eliminating the concrete wall, I will apply mixture of soil and pebbels between two base walls. Then, I will attach some cotton on the wall. And then I will put tons of soil on the cotton to make it stronger and let them dry.
Moreover, i’m going to install 4 water pipes on each side of the roff that has 5 turbins in the pipe to make subtitutional energy. The flow of water makes it to roll, and as the turbin rolls, the generator will transfer the kinetic energy of turbin into electrics.
Lastly, I’m going to make 6 small hole on the ceiling that between first floor ans second floor to keep average temparature by air convection. Also, I.m going to install 3 big vent on the roof to keep cool temparature in the summer so that we don’t have to use air conditioner.
My guess is our collaboration were spot on because we choose our role that we are good at. Also, the project couldn’t be finished without our efforts. But the thing is that, I think my role was the least though, because group members except me, they did lots of stuffs such as completing blue sheet, recording, making film, and video editing. It was too much for me to write answer from blue sheets and make or record. I was really thankful to my team member.
core competency reflection document———————————————————————-
Can we get energy from all the things exists in the Earth and do they influence us?
I have researched about biofuels. Thesedays, there are lots of issue between biofuels and our lives, so I woder if there are some relations among them. Then, why do we use fuels? That’s because we can get energy by burning them. At this moment we should know what fuels are cosisted of. Mostly, fuel cosists of carbon(C) and hydrogen(H). Usually, the thing that consists of carbon and hydrogen appears to CnH2n, CnH2n+2, or CnH2n-2 or stuff like that.
In addition, coals and petroleum are also consists of carbon(C) and hydrogen(H). So the thing is that, I wonder if we can produce with the thing that consists of carbon and hydrogen. To give you an idea of it, there are Ethanol, Methanol , Carbon dixocide, ether or stuff like that. But the thing is that, there are ethanol fuels and methanol fuels , yet there aren’t fuels made with carbon dixocide and ethere.
As I recognize the fact about it, I found a wonderful news that coffee are used as motivation to activitate the transportation in U.K. Therfore I thought that all the plants that have spectacular component can be used in versatile ways, but unfortunately, it is related to the shortage of food. As you know, plants can lead their life by themeselves by photosynthesis. By the process of photosynthesis, they divert carbon dixoside and water into sugar and oxygen.(6CO2+6H2O—>C6H12O6+6O2) As you can see the results of photosynthesis are sugar and oxgen. Then they are usually left( or neglected?) to be fermented to make biofuel by microbe. After the process of fermenting, you can get Ethanol which is usually called as biofuel.
You may think it will be benefitial not to pollute the environment, but the thing is that it’s not true at all. As there are good points, therer are also poor points. This technology are usually used at the city that air pollution are way severe. Which means it is usually done in developing country such as Brazil, Mexico or stuff like that. The thing is they are suffering from shortage of food. They usually use corn, wheat, sugar cane or stuff like that which is their stocks and food. As you can expect, by splurgind stocks at making biofuels their shortage of food is coming to severe and severe.
Fortunately, I found a wonderful news that the plants called Carinata is used as the biofuel for Quanter airline biojet. The thing is, that is not food and it is widely located anywhere in Australia. So the thing is, if I draw my conclusions one more time, my point is we should distinguish to get energy not from all the thing that exists in this world with proper standard, which means that it should not pollute the environment but also not to influence to the shortage of food. To keep creatures by the Sun explodes we have to plan lots of strategies to keep our lives and the Earth.
Part 2: My reflection
- What questions did you need to research in order to research your topic? —————————–The thing is that my topic was “Can we get energy from any other materials?”. Then I wonder that if it influences to us, and if so, I wonder whether it affects pollution or not.
- What new or familiar digital tools did you try to use as you worked through the project? —————- As you know, I’m an international students. In my hometown, South Korea, ther weren’t many chances to utilize digital devices because we always believe test important. All the thinga that I used such as computer and phone was new tools to use.
- To investigate about my project, I knew that I was poor at background, so I read some chemical books.
- By looking for books and catalougue in the library, I checked one more time.
- It was so much hard to do topic selection and research, because I have no exprience or idea to do it ,at first.
