S.H., age 47, reports difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep. These problems have been ongoing for many years, but she has never mentioned them to her health care provider. She has generally “lived with it” and selftreated the problem with OTC Tylenol PM. Currently, she is also experiencing perimenopausal symptoms of night sweats and mood swings. Current medical problems include hypertension controlled with medications. Past medical history includes childhood illnesses of measles, chickenpox, and mumps. Family history is positive for diabetes on the maternal side and hypertension on the paternal side. Her only medication is an angiotensinconverting enzyme inhibitor and diuretic combination for hypertension control. She generally does not like taking medication and does not take any other OTC products.

Diagnosis: InsomnIa.

ASTHMA

Mrs. Cason brings her 10-year-old child to the clinic stating my son “just isn’t breathing right, he doesn’t want to play, he just sits on my lap or lays on the couch, and this happens all the time.” Appearance of both mother and child is disheveled. The child’s wheezing can be heard across the room. When asked if her son is better at any certain time of the day the mother responds: “It’s like this all the time and has been for the past year, we just don’t come to the doctor because we don’t have any money.”

Mrs. Cason’s son was diagnosed of asthma.

Equilibrium Case

CHEMICAL KINETICS
Assignment Overview
Note: You must install Adobe Shockwave Player and Quicktime onto your computer in order to view these videos and tutorials. They are available for free online at http://www.adobe.com/products/shockwaveplayer.html & https://support.apple.com/downloads/quicktime). Google Chrome browser does NOT work for the Pearson links; please use Mozilla Firefox in this case.
In the following activity, you will be working with an equilibrium simulation activity and completing the questions on the lab activity below.
Equilibrium
When a reversible reaction reaches equilibrium, the amount or concentration of products and reactants level off due to the fact that the forward reaction changes reactants into products at the same rate that the reverse reaction changes products into reactants.
Stress
When a system at equilibrium is stressed, the chemicals in the closed system respond to the stress and make either more products or reactants. Once again, the concentrations will level off and a new equilibrium with different concentrations will be established.
Shift
The term shift simply indicates the direction (forward or reverse) of a reaction that increases in rate when a stress is applied. For example, if a reaction shifts to the right as a result of a stress being applied, the forward reaction rate increases and the concentration of the products increase. Logically, the concentration of the reactants must decrease.
What are we doing in the following exercise?
In this activity, your job is to examine how stress (temperature, pressure, and concentration) causes a system at equilibrium to shift and establish a new equilibrium.
You should hypothesize about which direction the equilibrium will shift after you apply the stress.
Keep careful track of what’s going on so that you can look back and discuss what happened.
In this video, Paul Andersen defines the rate of a reaction as the number of reactants that are consumed during a given period of time. The rate of the reaction can be affected by the type of reaction as well as the concentration, pressure, temperature and surface area. Be sure to watch the entire video to watch his discussion of the PhET video you will be working with in this case assignment.

8. Suppose that Glitter Gulch, a gold mining firm, increased its sales revenues on newly mined gold from $75 million to $150 million between one year and the next. Assuming that the price of gold increased by 100 percent over the same period, by what numerical amount did Glitter Gulch’s real output change?

[removed]

If the price of gold had not changed, what would have been the change in Glitter Gulch’s real output?

$ [removed]million

9. A mathematical approximation called the rule of 70 tells us that the number of years that it will take something that is growing to double in size is approximately equal to the number 70 divided by its percentage rate of growth. Thus, if Mexico’s real GDP per person is growing at 7 percent per year, it will take about 10 years (= 702formula11.mml7) to double.

Apply the rule of 70 to solve the following problem. Real GDP per person in Mexico in 2005 was about $11,000 per person, while it was about $44,000 per person in the United States. If real GDP per person in Mexico grows at the rate of 2 percent per year, how long will it take Mexico’s real GDP per person to reach the level that the United States was at in 2005? (Hint: How many times would Mexico’s 2005 real GDP per person have to double to reach the United States’ 2005 real GDP per person?)

Simple JAVA Code

efine a utility class for displaying values of type double. Call the class DoubleOut. Include all the methods in the class DollarFormat, all the methods from the class OutputFormat , and a method called scienceWrite that displays a value of type double using e notation, such as 2 .13e-12. (This e notation is also called scientific notation, which explains the method name.) When displayed in e notation, the number should appear with exactly one nonzero digit before the decimal point-unless the number is exactly zero. The method scienceWrite will not advance to the next line. Also add a method called scienceWriteln that is the same as scienceWrite except that it does advance to the next line. All but the last two method definitions can simply be copied from the text (or more easily from the source code for this book that is available on the Web.). Note that you will be overloading the method names write and writeln.

 

Write a driver program to test your method scienceWriteln. This driver program should use a stub for the method scienceWri te. (Note that this means you can write and test scienceWriteln before you even write scienceWrite.) Then write a driver program to test the method sci enceWri te. Finally, write a program that is a sort of super driver program that takes a double value as input and then displays it using the two writeln methods and the scienceWriteln method. Use the number 5 for the number of digits after the decimal point when you need to specify such a number. This super driver program should allow the user to repeat this testing with additional numbers of type double until the user is ready to end the program.
