Question: Should I eat a box of 12 fresh hot glazed Krispy Kreme donuts in the name of science?
I have been so good this holiday about eating healthy and avoiding snacks. BUT, I have been craving fresh hot glazed donuts from Krispy Kreme for weeks now. I have even dreamed of them. I know it sounds silly, but I just HAVE to have one or more.
The Proposed Experiment:
I think I could possibly consume 6 in one sitting , but don’t know if I can eat 12. Should I see if it is humanly possible for me to eat 12?
Should I stop at satifaction, or pig out and get it out of my system? OR, should I keep on avoiding them though they call out to my inner being?
You may answer as you wish, no offence will be taken. Please use child friendly vocabulary. (No ugly words please)
Uh, yeah 20 is far too ambitious. I dont want to vomit.
I will let you folks know the outcome. Ya know, for Science and all!
Answer: OMG! I love Krispy Kreme donuts. I swear there’s got to be crack in them or something, they’re so addictive. I’ve had about 3 or 4 in one sitting but 12? Honey, you’re tummy is gonna be hurting! And to think of all that sugar in your body at once, surely you’ll get sick to your stomach. But if I were you, I’d go ahead and indulge a little. I mean damn, you’ve been dreaming about these donuts you might as well, right?

Question: How can I expand my science fair project idea? Real life application needed…?
For the science fair my partner and I made flute headjoints out of various materials. We were planning on blowing through them and using sound frequency wave analysis software to see how many overtones were present in the sounds. Then based on that we would come to a conclusion about the different metals and how they affect the vibrating column of air inside the flute. I’m starting to think this isn’t enough and I’d like to connect the project with a real life application. Does anyone know of a practical usage of vibrating columns of air in tubes (one that is comparable to our experiment)?
Answer: The animal or human ear / ear drum!… On a different note (pardon the pun) You could also look into hypersonic sound (which is more directional) then you can aim two non-audible signals at slightly different kHz say 50kHz signals and another at 60KHz.. if they are phased correctly they should yield a 10KHz hear able sound where the two non audible sounds are in the same location. Does that sound like fun?

Question: i don’t have much knowledge of electronics. but i would try to start from a Small project. can u suggest me ?
Answer: Below I have included a few options that may help. There are several electronic kit out there that let you experiment with electronics and guide you through how to wire the different projects. I also recommend getting a multimeter for testing circuits. Other options available are robot kits, remote control car kit, etc. I personally had one of the old radioshack kits when I was a kid and learned a lot from it.
Radioshack Electronics Learing Lab
Learn in your own lab.
Learn all about electronics with the Electronic Learning Lab. This set includes everything children age 10 and up need to learn basic and integrated circuits. Build projects that reward with warbles, sirens, flashing lights and circuits that make decisions. Topics are presented in an increasing order of complexity to keep learning fresh and fun. Ultimately advance to circuits using transistors, diodes and 15 integrated circuits.
Elenco MX909 500 in 1 Electronics Learning Lab
This Electronic Science Lab will teach you about electronics from A to Z. You will learn about electronic parts, how to read schematics, and wiring diagrams. All this, while building up to 500 different projects. This kit uses two quick and easy hook-up methods:
Spring Method: Simply slip pre-cut wires and components into special springs for a safe, secure connection.
Breadboard Method: Featured in this advanced kit, this system is used by professionals and engineers. Just plug the components and wires into the special breadboard socket holes.
No soldering is required. Everything uses battery power – no dangerous AC is required, so it’s safe for all ages. Labs come with all components and wires needed to build each project. NO TOOLS ARE REQUIRED. No prior knowledge is needed to assemble and build these exciting projects. Easy-to-read, illustrated, lab-style manuals take you through each electronic experiment step-by-step. All are designed for ages 10 & up, so these are ideal for MIDDLE SCHOOLS and HIGH SCHOOLS.
