...Pit and the Pendulum” and “A Predicament” by E.A. Poe. The Essay It is clear that Edgar Allen Poe intends that his short stories, “The Pit and the Pendulum” and “A Predicament” affect his reader directly and powerfully. The responses he wants from the reader, however, differ significantly and therefore the stories are expected to be differently structured, and to use very different tactics to manipulate the readers’ responses. This is not the case. Some differences in the structures and tactics can be seen... but in the techniques Poe uses to create very real physical sensations in the reader through description, the stories employ very much the same tactics. “The Pit and the...

...Pit Edgar Allan Poe was born in 1809 and died in 1849. In this short span of40 years he was renowned for his skills as a poet and for developing the potential power of the short story. He is remarked to have invented both the detective story and science fiction tales (Frank 1). Today, most fans perceive him as the parent of the gothic genre, although his works are quite different from the far more graphic violence prevalent in modern examples of the genre today ("The Pit and the Pendulum"). He has a profound way of presenting a story that pulls you in, both in his gift of language and in his understanding of what is frightening to people, all people on some level. “The life... ?

After changing the mass of the bob and repeat the same process (i.e. table 2), the comparison of “T” values of 81cm and 64 cm long simple pendulums reflect similar results as in table 1.

A pendulum is a string or stick with a weight or bob on the end suspended from a pivot so that it can swing freely (Britannica Encyclopedia). When a pendulum is displaced sideways from its resting position, it is subject to a restoring force due to gravity that will accelerate it back towards its equilibrium position. One of the most interesting aspects of a Pendulum is its period. The period of a pendulum is the time it takes to complete one full swing (or oscillation). As the period of a pendulum is constant, pendulums were used to regulate the movement of clocks. Until the 1930’s pendulums were... The Math behind...

...Pit Bull Dogs: A Controversial Breed There has been a long lasting debate on the cruelty and negativity of the Pit Bull dogs. Some people go as far as calling the pit bull dogs evil and media content further enlightens their image as a demon. They are neither portrayed nor believed to be normal animals but instead are taken as ferocious, violent and brutal creatures. Like many other breeds, Pit bull dogs are also a major breed of dogs. One cannot judge an animal to be violent or bloodthirsty by its very own nature until it is wild enough to be kept away from the city zones. As humans, we have researches and animal experts to guide us on the nature of the animals and some important guidelines... ...

...Pendulum Lab simulation. For this simulation set the friction slider to none. Use the photogate timer to measure the period of the pendulum. Now figure out how to measure g the gravitational acceleration. First practice getting the right values for Earth and Jupiter. What is the gravitational acceleration on planet X? Explain how you found it. The experiment was set as described above. The following table shows the summary of the results. Earth Jupiter Planet X Length of the pendulum l (m) 1.5 1.5 1.5 The angle of displacement (degrees) 5 5 5 Periodic time T (s) 2.4579 1.5121 2.0426 Gravity (ms-2) 9.8047 25.9061 14.1970 …..........................................1...

...pendulum and spring mass system) differ with diverse parameters. Method This entailed conducting both pendulum and spring experiments separately to determine their behaviors especially when subjected to diverse parameters. These parameters included varied lengths, angles, and weights both the both the pendulum as well as spring respectively. Results Spring and pendulum varied directly with the parameters applied though slight errors emerged during the experiments. These were due to either slight distortions of the equipments or errors when talking measurements... . Applications The application of these experiments is immensely in the fabrication sectors where engineers construct diverse...

...pendulum The pendulum is mounted on a vertical stand and a slight force subjected to it so that it assumes a mechanical influence on the general system. This makes it poses both a linear as well circular components of motion so that it can be described in a Cartesian plane of X and Y axes. The horizontal displacement depicts a circular motion which in effect is described by a angular displacement of about 40 degrees. This is timed for a definite period of time. When the length of the pendulum is measured it is a great determinant of the angular displacement in use during the experiment. From the graph presented; angle versus time...

...Pendulum. At the start of the experiment, the following materials are prepared. 1. 2 Meters Thin String 2. A circular weight to be placed at the end of the string. 3. Filter (given with the assignment) 4. Tape Measure and other measuring devices like rulers, meter sticks etc. 5. Tapes 6. Pen and Paper. Before the experiment actually started, the person who will do the experiment were briefed for him to be able to do the observation clearly and as accurate as possible. Then, the materials were set... Question A. In doing the experiment, it is really important to have an understanding first of the concept to be observed. By taking considerationeach factors that may affect the overall effect of Pulfrich...
