When you open the html file in your browser, the text shown in Figure 6 should appear in your browser window.

Figure 6 . Screen output for Listing #2.
```At 10 seconds: distance traveled = -1609 feetheight = 8391 feet At 20 seconds:distance traveled = -6435 feet height = 3565 feetThe End```

As you can see from Figure 6 , after ten seconds, the rock will have traveled a distance of -1609 feet. (The minus sign indicates downwardmotion.)

Adding this value to the initial height of 10000 feet produces a value of 8391 for the height of the rock at the end of 10 seconds.

Similarly, Figure 6 gives us 3565 for the height of the rock at 20 seconds.

Analysis of the code

The code in Listing 2 begins by defining a function that computes and returns the distance traveled for a rock falling toward the earth for a given timeinterval since release assuming that the initial velocity was zero (the rock was simply dropped).

This function implements the equation shown earlier, and expects to receive the time as an input parameter. It returns thedistance traveled during that time interval.

Note that the interaction of units is shown in the comments with the result that the returned value is in feet.

Call the function twice in succession

Then the code calls that function twice in succession for two different timeintervals (10 seconds and 20 seconds) to determine the distance traveled during each time interval.

In both cases, the distance traveled is added to the initial height of 10000 feet to determine the height of the rock at the end of the time interval.

Also, in both cases, the time interval, the distance traveled, and the resulting height of the rock above the ground are displayed as shown in Figure 6 .

Note again that in all cases, the interactions of the various units are shown in the comments.

## A plotting exercise

Let's do another exercise and this time plot the results.

Please prepare your plot board to plot a curve defined by several points. Interpret the grid lines such that you can plot values ranging from 0 to 10000feet on the vertical axis and you can plot values ranging from 0 to 30 seconds on the horizontal axis.

A tactile graph

If you have an assistant who will download the zip file named Phy1050.zip , extract the file named Phy1050a1.svg, and use that file to create a tactilegraph as described in the module named Manual Creation of Tactile Graphics . You can explore the tactile graph instead. Regardless, you should write the script and examine the printed output as described in thefollowing paragraphs.

JavaScript code

Copy the code from Listing 3 into an html file and open it in your browser.

are nano particles real
yeah
Joseph
Hello, if I study Physics teacher in bachelor, can I study Nanotechnology in master?
no can't
Lohitha
where we get a research paper on Nano chemistry....?
nanopartical of organic/inorganic / physical chemistry , pdf / thesis / review
Ali
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level

no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts

I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.

what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?
what is a peer
What is meant by 'nano scale'?
What is STMs full form?
