Science Equipment Worksheet

    equipment

  • The process of supplying someone or something with such necessary items
  • The act of equipping, or the state of being equipped, as for a voyage or expedition; Whatever is used in equipping; necessaries for an expedition or voyage; the collective designation for the articles comprising an outfit; equipage; as, a railroad equipment (locomotives, cars, etc.
  • an instrumentality needed for an undertaking or to perform a service
  • Mental resources
  • A tool is a device that can be used to produce or achieve something, but that is not consumed in the process. Colloquially a tool can also be a procedure or process used for a specific purpose.
  • The necessary items for a particular purpose

    worksheet

  • A worksheet is a sheet of paper, or on a computer, on which problems are worked out or solved and answers recorded.
  • A data file created and used by a spreadsheet program, which takes the form of a matrix of cells when displayed
  • A paper for recording work done or in progress
  • A paper listing questions or tasks for students
  • a sheet of paper with multiple columns; used by an accountant to assemble figures for financial statements
  • a piece of paper recording work planned or done on a project

    science

  • The intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment
  • a particular branch of scientific knowledge; “the science of genetics”
  • A particular area of this
  • skill: ability to produce solutions in some problem domain; “the skill of a well-trained boxer”; “the sweet science of pugilism”
  • A systematically organized body of knowledge on a particular subject
  • Science (from the Latin scientia, meaning “knowledge”) is, in its broadest sense, any systematic knowledge that is capable of resulting in a correct prediction (i.e. falsifiability in Karl Popper’s sense) or reliable outcome.

Safe Operations of Agricultural Equipment: Student Manual
Safe Operations of Agricultural Equipment: Student Manual
This quality manual meets Federal Regulations for training young people to work in agricultural occupations. It represents the 24-hour tractor and machine operation program. Consisting of 11 units, this manual covers all the phases of agricultural equipment and farmstead safety. The 11 units are titled: Safety is No Accident; Instruments & Controls; Maintenance and Safety Checks; Starting & Stopping Tractors; Tractor Safety on the Farm; Tractor Safety on the Road; Tractor Hitches, PTO, and Hydraulics; Why Farm Machinery Accidents Occur; Farm Machinery Accident Situations; Farmstead Safety; and Safety Standards for Agricultural Tractors and Implements. Each unit includes a student worksheet and a checksheet with questions related to the materials covered in the unit.

Absolute Zero and the Conquest of Cold
In a sweeping yet concise scientific adventure story, Tom Shachtman takes us on a journey in which the extraordinary secrets of cold are teased apart and mastered, bringing advances in civilization and comfort. Starting in the 1600s with an alchemist’s attempt to air-condition Westminster Abbey, the incredible story includes the invention of thermometers and scales, the sale of Walden Pond ice to tropical countries by nineteenth-century merchants, and the pursuit of absolute zero by scientists who competed with as much fervor as those racing to the poles.

Ancient minds imagined the benefits of technological advances that wouldn’t be realized for hundreds of years: “heavier-than-air-flight, ultrarapid ground transportation, the prolongation of life through better medicines, even the construction of skyscrapers and the use of robots.” But as Tom Shachtman points out in his Alfred P. Sloan-funded science history Absolute Zero and the Conquest of Cold, no one could conceive of how or why humans would make use of intense cold. “Cold was a mystery without an obvious source, a chill associated with death, inexplicable, too fearsome too investigate.”
But as we now know, the mastery of cold has yielded innumerable advances, from the ubiquitous presence of refrigeration and air-conditioning to phenomenal leaps in superconductivity and subatomic research–in 1999 alone, Shachtman cites, a Harvard team used laser cooling to create an environment 50-billionths of a degree above zero, slowing the speed of light to just 38 miles per hour! Absolute Zero guides us skillfully through the fitful, nascent growth of this misunderstood, bastard branch of science, from the early accomplishments of Boyle, Joule, William Thomson (later Lord Kelvin), and other lesser-knowns like Anders Celsius and Gabriel Daniel Fahrenheit to the 20th century, the integration of ultracold research with quantum theory, and the most recent accomplishments in the field. Shachtman’s approachable voice proves equally facile with both the science of cold and the mundane history of its technical and commercial uses, including the global ice trade and the work of one of cold’s greatest commercial pioneers, a chemist named Clarence Birdseye. –Paul Hughes
