With my desire to learn about the dynamics of fluids, I decided to construct a project that would focus on the mechanics of flight. To execute this idea, I built a wind tunnel that simulates the movement of air over objects. This tunnel is used as a basic method to build automobiles both land and sea as well as aircraft. The project propels smoke through a tube that moves through the tunnel over a series of objects to display the various motions of air depending on its environment.

I chose the Gravlox as a meal because it is healthy and simple. Aside from its simplicity it is also an interesting dish that not many I am sure have heard of. According to the reviews, the dish seems to be a favorite of many people. The food itself is natural; there is an absence of any processed factors. The fish you can get from a market and the other ingredients are just seasonings, and sauces. With such simple ingredients, there is obviously a lack of many health concerns. The only issue that our bodies will face is the amount of sodium in the dish. To some the saltiness is obnoxiously present but aside from enjoyment our bodies have to worry about the rising of our blood pressure. The kidney is put to work to recalculate and regulate the processing of sodium that is already present in our body. With the addition of the sodium from this dish, we are at risk of increasing the pressure of our blood but it isn’t expected that people will eat this dish regularly. Compared to processed food/ fast foods, this is definitely the better choice. It is simple, economically pleasing and healthy. Fish markets I do not believe create problems in the food industry when it comes to affecting the economy. As for this dish I believe it is of the few that are smart and easy.
This food chapter has opened my eyes to the true colors of
the food industry. I have been made aware of the many harsh methods the workers
use to slaughter the animals brutally. Aside from animal abuse I have learned
that the larger industry feeds off of the popularity of organic advertisement.
It is a way in which the industry attracts its customers to buy more of their
products. The down side of this method is that the organic foods are not truly
organic. Being truly organic results in the food product having the USDA seal,
which implies that the product is at least 95% organic. The dark side of this
is that the organic we think of is not the reality; it also has chemical
additives, which are not labeled out in the open. A way to solve this clouded
understanding of the food industry is by making more individuals aware of the
false advertisement. We can also share our interest in true organic foods. If
we make more people interested in the real organic foods we can help mend the
wound of the farmers market industries. Overall the world is a corrupt place and the food industry
does not fall short of the stick.
FOOD RULE SLIDE:
You hold the handheld instrument in one or both hands and you blow on the top of each tube to make a specific sound(various pitches). In order to produce sound the pipes has two holes in them and the hole that you must blow in will be at the top and the bottom hole should be covered up by something so that the sound does not just travel straight through the pipe. To change a note, the user must blow on one of the pipes. Each pipe should create a certain pitch based on its size. The instrument is a row of pvc pipes from lowest to highest or vice versa. The instrument can also be made small enough to fit in your hand and also big enough to be played while sitting on a table. It is shaped basically like a set of stairs because of the row of pvc pipe sizes. The working of the instrument makes me think that the various sizes of the pipes are essential factors when it comes to producing the different pitches of sound. In all I believe that the wave of sound is specifically produced in an individual pipe to produce a certain pitch each time. None of the waves are the same because of the different types of sound produced.
The sound is produced by the pressurized air of my breath as it travels through the pipe. The casing acts as a tension which once the sounds reaches the specific holes, is released and produces varying pitches. I am chaining the pitch by placing the holes along the pipe in specific spots. The spacing in between the holes are essential because it determines the pitch released. I will be using PVC piping to create the pipe. It is a material that I have used to build with before and it also seems like a the perfect material that'll help produce the specific sound I want. I still need to learn on where it is that i need to specifically place the holes and how it'll effect the sound produced.
