LO 2.3.1 LO 2.3.2 LO 2.3.3

Read this amusing poem:


I picked up a shell on a golden beach

and asked it to reveal to me

the secret wonders of the sea

the mysteries that seemed out of reach.

I held the shell close in order to hear

its stories of rolling waves,

of mermaids and treasures in pirate caves ...

then a crab came out and painfully pinched my ear!

P.&B. Louw

Writing: In pairs try to write your own poem about the sea.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
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.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
