Why Popcorn Costs So Much at the Movies: And Other Pricing Puzzles

Why Popcorn charges a lot on the videos, And different Pricing Puzzles unravels the pricing mysteries we stumble upon on a daily basis. have you puzzled why all video clips, even if blockbusters or duds, have an identical price tag costs? Why occasionally there are unfastened lunches? Why such a lot of costs finish with "9"? Why ink cartridges can rate up to printers?

The History of Science and Technology: A Browser's Guide to the Great Discoveries, Inventions, and the People Who MadeThem from the Dawn of Time to Today

During this age of genetic engineering and international warming, it's extra vital than ever to appreciate the heritage and present traits of technology and expertise. With quite a bit info available in the market, even though, it’s tough to grasp the place to begin. That’s the place The historical past of technology and know-how — the main finished and up to date chronology of its style -- is available in.

Inconsistency, Asymmetry, and Non-Locality: A Philosophical Investigation of Classical Electrodynamics

Mathias Frisch presents the 1st sustained philosophical dialogue of conceptual difficulties in classical particle-field theories. a part of the e-book specializes in the matter of a passable equation of movement for charged debris interacting with electromagnetic fields. As Frisch indicates, the normal equation of movement ends up in a mathematically inconsistent thought, but there isn't any absolutely constant and conceptually unproblematic substitute idea.

Mathematics - the music of reason

Arithmetic: the hot Golden Age deals a glimpse of the extreme vistas and peculiar universes unfolded by means of modern mathematicians: Hilbert's 10th challenge and the four-color theorem, Gaussian integers, chaotic dynamics and the Mandelbrot set, endless numbers, and weird quantity platforms. Why a "new golden age"?

Chapter 4 150 Years of Organic Structures David E. edu In 1858, a pair of papers were published that were to change the way that organic chemists thought about the compounds they dealt with. The first to appear was a paper by Friedrich August Kekule and the second, which appeared only slightly afterward, was by a brilliant young Scotsman, Archibald Scott Couper.

Born to a family in the lesser nobility, Butlerov was educated at Kazan' University, where he studied under Nikolai Nikolaevich Zinin (whose discoveries include the reduction of nitrobenzene to aniline) and Karl Karlovich Klaus (the discoverer of ruthenium). ) was on the butterflies of the Volga-Ural region (47), Zinin's departure for St. Petersburg left the University needing a junior colleague for Klaus to teach chemistry, so Butlerov was appointed to the post. Following Klaus' departure for Dorpat (now Tartu, in Estonia), the sole responsibility for teaching chemistry at Kazan' University devolved upon Butlerov.
