QUESTION 1
First determine whether the structure is statically determinate or indeterminate using 2n= m + r, where n= joints, m= members, r=reactions
In this case, n=11, m=19, r=3 thus 2x11=22=19+3 therefore the structure is statically determinate
Let the length of each of the 5 bays be x,
Determine the reactions at the supports = (1+1+1+1+1)/2 = 2.5 units, simply because the truss is symmetrical about the apex.

Quantum...? **Quantum** Local-density approximation (LDA) Local-density approximations and the Perdew-Burke-Ernzerhof generalized gradient approximation are widelyused by physicists and chemists for electronic structure investigation of different body-systems. Local-density approximations (LDA) refer to “a certain class of approximations implemented to the exchange-correlation (XC) energy functional in DFT, which are dependant on electronic density value at each point in space” (Parr and Weitao, 1994). In accordance with numerous researches in the field of DFT, local approximations can be yielded to the XC energy. Nevertheless, it is relevant to note that widely used local approximations were found in the homogeneous electron...

Atoms of metals and LIDAR...?**Atoms** of Metals and LIDAR Introduction Every day, one hundred metric tons of meteor debris enters the Earth’s atmosphere – generally in the form of metallic sodium, iron, silicon, potassium, magnesium, and calcium particles less than 1mm in diameter. When combined with high temperature in the upper atmosphere, these particles vaporize and form the **Atomic** Metal Layers located 80 to 105 kilometres above the Earth’s surface (ATHENA Research and Innovation Centre n. pag.). The Sodium Layer was discovered in 1929 by Vesto Melvin Slipher. Since then, other layers have been discovered such as iron, potassium, and calcium (Keese n. pag). Majority of observations on **atomic** metal layers have been...

Fluid mechanics...Laboratory Report: Fluid **Mechanics**— Verification of Bernoulli’s Equation The behavior of the laminar fluid motion along a converging-diverging tube of known cross-sectional area, at different flow rates, is investigated, and the mass as well as energy conservation laws are verified in this experiment. Another objective of performing it is to measure the loss of energy due to viscous resistance to the fluid the motion in case of higher flow rates. The results obtained from the experiment not only verify the basic laws and characteristics of a fluid in motion, but also determines the losses incurred in energy due to resistive forces. Introduction When a fluid undergoes motion, there are certain laws it must satisfy. Two of...

What Is Quantum Physics..., and Niels Bohr. Meanwhile, Albert Einstein tried to disprove and modify it for many years due to its various theoretical issues with **quantum** **mechanics** (Jones, 2011).
**Quantum** physics has five general ideas. First, energy is not continuous but comes in small discrete units. Its elementary particles behave both like particles and like waves, thus such particle movement is said to be in random. Fourth, it is physically impossible to determine the particles’ position and movement at the same time, otherwise when one is precisely known the other has less precise measurement. And lastly, the **atomic** world is nothing like the world we live in, making it incomparable and less...

Determine viscous drag of bluff and streamlined bodies
Q3:
(a) Describe the terms skin friction drag and form drag.
On describing skin friction drag and form drag, one ought to comprehend the fundamental ideas accompanying the term ‘drag’. As introduced in fluid **mechanics**, ‘drag’ pertains to the force exerted on a material by the fluid through which it is transported, either co-currently or counter-currently. It is often referred to as a sort of friction made by the resistance of fluid against an object moving in it. In design calculations for a variety of structures, drag forces are considered to an appreciable extent to figure good material selection and engineering...

Quantum Cryptography...Running Head: **QUANTUM** CRYPTOGRAPHY **QUANTUM** CRYPTOGRAPHY By **Quantum** Cryptography
**Quantum** cryptography’s main strength is its predominantly good way of generating long, arbitrary codes (Cobourne and Cid, 2011, p. 5). A second strength of **quantum** code allocation is that one can use a more or less short input to produce ideally secure and arbitrary codes. This feature allows two users to share a secure code and validate the original **quantum** dialogue. Applying part of the product of this QKD term to validate an upcoming QKD term shows that the approaching session is also ideally secure. As a result, one can run QKD terms nearly continuously...

ELECTRONS AS PARTICLES AND WAVES
Electrons of today have both wave and particle properties when subjected to different conditions. Albert Einstein’s **Quantum** theory suggested that electrons cannot be both waves and particles at the same time (AIP). Electrons exhibition of properties of other groups of particles remains a mystery. They have a charge, mass and spin. More research is essential today to unravel this dual nature mystery.
