A New Human: The Startling Discovery and Strange Story of the ''Hobbits'' of Flores, Indonesia

In October 2004, a workforce of Australian and Indonesian anthropologists led by way of Mike Morwood and Raden Pandji Soejono surprised the area with their declaration of the invention of the 1st instance of a brand new species of human, Homo floresiensis, which they nicknamed the "Hobbit. " This used to be no construction of Tolkien's myth, even though, yet a tool-using, fire-making, cooperatively searching individual.

Juvenile Osteology: A Laboratory and Field Manual (Laboratory & Field Manual)

The necessity for a laboratory and box guide to help with the overview of stripling skeletal fabric is lengthy late. This source is key for the practicing osteoarchaeologist and forensic anthropologist who calls for a short, trustworthy and easy-to-use connection with relief within the identity, siding and getting older of youth osseous fabric.

Example text

Examples of intensive properties are temperature and pressure. Some intensive properties are ratios of two extensive properties. 7). The mass density of a substance is independent of the size of the sample because doubling the volume also doubles the mass, so the ratio of mass to volume remains the same. The mass density is therefore an intensive property. A molar quantity is the value of a property of a sample divided by the amount of substance in a sample (the ‘molar concentration’, described below, is an exception to this usage).

10 An extensive property is a property that depends on the amount of substance in the sample. An intensive property is a property that is independent of the amount of substance in the sample. 11 12 INTRODUCTION Table of key equations The following table summarizes the equations that have been developed in this chapter. 1 Explain the differences between gases, liquids, and solids. 2 Define the terms: force, work, energy, kinetic energy, and potential energy. 3 Distinguish between mechanical and thermal equilibrium.

1 The volume of a gas decreases as the pressure on it is increased. For a sample that obeys Boyle’s law and that is kept at constant temperature, the graph showing the dependence is a hyperbola, as shown here. Each curve corresponds to a single temperature, and hence is an isotherm. The isotherms are hyperbolas, graphs of xy = constant, or y = constant/x (see Appendix 2). Fig. 3 This diagram illustrates the content and implications of Charles’s law, which asserts that the volume occupied by a gas (at constant pressure) varies linearly with the temperature.
