Asked by Himadritanaya · 7 months ago

Why physics and technology depended on each other?

Hello again. I meant to say that the flip side of the argument, as advancements in computing, measurement and materials science are made, our ability to isolate and design experiments to examine the physical universe expand. So technology depends on physics. Physics depends on technology. Ian

Asked by Avuyile · 7 months ago

What are the advantages of Reporting in assessment methods?

Hello Avuyile I am not wholly certain what you mean by reporting, but I suspect that you mean progress reporting.

How would you prepare a banana sample for analytical analysis, using flame photometry and ICP-OES?

Hey Julia Interesting topic and question. Solid samples cannot be introduced to the system directly, without specific equipment, and must first be dissolved and digested. One of the most common methods is acid digestion by heating the sample in hot acids, or a mixture of hot acids, which causes dissolution of the sample. The link below is an example of the analysis of toxic elements in trop... more

Calculate the TDN values for the following feed: nutrient content: %Digestible nitrogen: 1.36Digestible fat: 0.5Digestible fiber: 20.0Digestible nitrogen free extract: 30.4?

Hey there Jess. So the total digestible nutrition of the feeds can be found by adding together the different percentages of the components. TDN= digestible crude protein (you could assume the digestible nitrogen here) + digestible crude fibre + the digestible nitrogen free extract + (2.25 x digestive ether extract {fats and fatty soluble bits} So here : TDN = 1.36 + 20.0 + 30.4 + (2.25 x 0.5)... more

Career Advice

Asked by Georgia · 7 months ago

Compare the strenghts and limitations of a range of assessment methods with reference to the needs of individual learners?

I should also say that individual learners will each have a unique set of skills and situations. Some people are naturally more confident and outgoing, so take to presentations and oral communications more easily. Some people love reading and writing and so find essays and coursework more natural. Some people are majorly impacted by nerves and so part of a tutors job is to build confidence... more
