Friday stuff

I have successfully completed my first calculus exam. I hope I did better on it than I feel.

Anyway, here is a quote from my Biology book:

Culture is the sum of a social group's behavioral patterns, passed on through the generations by learning and symbolic behavior.

Biology - The Unity and Diversity of Life
eleventh edition page 452

So, i don't know why I had to post that. Kirk told me I did because i read it to her from my Biology book and she thought it was funny or something.
I don't have any Friday Vocabulary today. But maybe I will next week.

The Quote of Wednesday

Oh my goodness! I just remembered today was Wednesday and I had to post my quote for today!
Except, I don't have a quote for today.
Hang on, I will find one...

Okay, I walked into the kitchen and saw this written on our white board:
Ponder the zucchini.

Actually, we chopped up the zucchini last night, so it is no longer ponderable, but before we did, we named it Zeke. Zeke was the largest zucchini we had ever seen and was one of the first out of Melanie & Laura's family's garden (roommates of mine). Zeke will taste good in zucchini bread.


Have you ever ridden a bicycle? I have. It is a great deal of fun, but I wish the tires on my bike were in better condition. I have not ridden all year because of the state they are in.
And also because I have not been at home very much.

This is a picture of a wall of bicycles from the New York State Museum. I think it would be fun to have a bicycle with a great large wheel like the one on the left hand side of the picture. It would interesting to ride.

Look! It is one of those nothing posts I am so good at. See, I think there ought to be some sort of interesting post associated with this interesting picture of a large pottery pitcher from the New York State Museum. But I can't think of one. 'Tis most unfortunate, but true.

Maybe I will post this picture again later when I can think of something to go with it.

I read this and it is excellent. Please go read it.

Physics Equation of Saturday

So here is the first physics equations of whatever day I happen to get around to posting it, which happens to be Saturday. And the physics equation I chose for today is one that shows the relationship between the charge and the potential difference of a capacitor.
A capacitor is formed of any two conducting objects next to each other. When it is charged (has electricity flowing through it), each object has a charge of the same magnitude, but different signs (+ or - signs). The electricity flows from the + charged object to the - charged object and energy is stored in it.
So the equation is:

q = CV

q is the charge of each object.
V is the potential difference between the two objects. It has to do with the energy.
C is the capacitance of the capacitor (or the measure of the charge needed to produce a certain potential difference)

And that is all I am going to say about this seeing as how I now need to go solve problems using this equation for homework.
