## Writing exercises

In your own words, explain the difference between the counting numbers and the whole numbers.

Answers may vary. The whole numbers are the counting numbers with the inclusion of zero.

Give an example from your everyday life where it helps to round numbers.

## Self check

After completing the exercises, use this checklist to evaluate your mastery of the objectives of this section.

If most of your checks were...

…confidently. Congratulations! You have achieved the objectives in this section. Reflect on the study skills youused so that you can continue to use them. What did you do to become confident of your ability to do these things? Bespecific.

…with some help. This must be addressed quickly because topics you do not master become potholes in your road tosuccess. In math, every topic builds upon previous work. It is important to make sure you have a strong foundationbefore you move on. Who can you ask for help? Your fellow classmates and instructor are good resources. Isthere a place on campus where math tutors are available? Can your study skills be improved?

…no—I don’t get it! This is a warning sign and you must not ignore it. You should get help right away or you willquickly be overwhelmed. See your instructor as soon as you can to discuss your situation. Together you can come upwith a plan to get you the help you need.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

why surface tension is zero at critical temperature
Shanjida
I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
