  • Each new Mercedes Benz that is manufactured undergoes a thorough test for evaluation. This is important because it provides feedback to the manufacturers who need to know what they should do to improve subsequent models. You should also ask yourself questions about whether your model meets the stipulations of your specification. You will also benefit by getting the opinion of other people. Be honest with yourself and allow yourself to be critical about your design model. Ask yourself how you would approach the project if you had to repeat it.
LO 1.13


Learning Outcomes(LOs)
LO 1
TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESSES AND SKILLS The learner will be able to apply technological processes and skills ethically and responsibly using appropriate information and communication technology.
This is demonstrated when the learner:
investigates:1.1 investigates the background context, the nature of the need, the environmental situation, and the people concerned when given a problem, need or opportunity set in a nationally relevant context;
1.3 develops and performs practical tests in the technological areas (Structures, Processing, and Systems and Control);
1.4 uses appropriate technologies and methods to:
  • collect relevant data from different sources and resources;
  • extract relevant data;
  • make meaningful summaries;use information to justify and support decisions and ideas;
designs:1.5 writes or communicates a short and clear statement or a design brief in response to a given identified situation for the development of a product or system;
1.6 lists product and design specifications and constraints for a solution to an identified or given problem, need or opportunity based on most of the design key words listed below:
    • people: age target market;
  • purpose: function;
  • appearance: colour, shape;
  • environment: where will product be used;
  • safety: for users;
  • cost: cost of materials;
1.7 generates several alternative solutions and writes notes, ideas that show some links to the design brief and specifications;
makes:1.9 develops a plan for making that outlines all of the following:
  • resources needed;
  • sketches showing the necessary dimensions or quantities;
  • all steps necessary to making the product;
1.10 chooses and uses appropriate tools and materials to make products by measuring, marking, cutting or separating, shaping or forming, joining or combining, and finishing different materials accurately using appropriate techniques;
evaluates: 1.13 tests and evaluates the products or systems with objectivity, based on objective criteria linked to the design brief, specifications and constraints, and suggests sensible improvements or modifications;
communictes: 1.15 presents ideas using two-dimensional or three dimensional sketches, circuit diagrams or systems diagrams that include all of the following features:
  • use of SA drawing conventions (e.g. dimension lines, labelling, line types, symbols);
  • notes to clarify and communicate design features and reasoning; enhancement of significant sketches like final solution drawings.



  • Refer to the framework included in the module for the assessment of the work. You could extend the framework to meet all possible portfolio requirements, e.g. by ordering research results by means of tables and by means of graphic presentations.

can you teacch how to solve that🙏
Solve for the first variable in one of the equations, then substitute the result into the other equation. Point For: (6111,4111,−411)(6111,4111,-411) Equation Form: x=6111,y=4111,z=−411x=6111,y=4111,z=-411
x=61/11 y=41/11 z=−4/11 x=61/11 y=41/11 z=-4/11

why surface tension is zero at critical temperature
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
