Question: I have a science project to do on Hurricanes and I can’t quite fine the right project so Can anyone help me?
Like I said, I have a science project to do due on June 12th and i had to do another one on Tsunamis with my friend and i’m looking for something sort of simple but something unique and original to impress my teacher on my final grading so it can’t be a mimic of something like how most hurricane experiments end up looking like a tornado
Answer: If you really want to impress your teacher, look past the looks and dig into the science of Hurricanes.
Hurricanes start off as just common storms off of the west African coast. They make a long journey, unhindered by winds and coriolis force until they break from the ITCZ.
Make sure your class realizes that there is actually High Pressure above a hurricane, which is what keeps it so tightly wound.
Don’t forget about the power. 100 Nuclear bombs can’t even begin to touch the energy of just one hurricane.
Hurricanes also have an eye, which is actually the center of lowest Pressure in the storm.
Show pictures of different types of hurricanes, like the difference between Bertha, Andrew, Katrina, Rita, etc.
Hurricanes are an amazing weather force that humans have only begun to understand. To harness this incredible storm type in a project is impossible, but the basic science is simple. Research your facts.
They are out there, and you will be better for it.
Hope I’ve Helped!

Question: I need help with this science question?
It’s about an experiment Millier and Urey did simulating early Earth to prove Oparin’s hypothesis. They mixed some things together and passed an electric current through it simulating lightning. The question is if there was no lightning in early Earth what could be changed about the experiment to be reflect this? What energy source could be used instead of lightning?
Answer: Well, there are a number of ideas in abiogenesis that deal with alternatives like geothermal heat providing the energy needed. The link below, give an overview of various ideas that have been proposed.

Question: How to write a conclusion for this science report?
we had to fill out a sheet : hypothesis, discussion, observations, etc.
The experiment was :
Separating Sugar from Water.
In the end all we had left was a blob of brown sticky stuff kinda like caramel.
What should the conclusion be? Please write one I know I am dumb :L
ALSO , is the stuff that was left over a solid?
Answer: Conclusion “With the method chosen the sugar cannot be separated from the water.”
That is the valid conclusion to your experiment. It wasn’t sugar now was it?
And the aim was to separate it too wasn’t it?
So the conclusion must refer back to the original aim of the experiment.
