Role of Environmental Conditions on Drying of Paint

Role of Environmental Conditions on Drying of Paint

Dutta et al. | Feb 20, 2021

Reducing paint drying time is an important step in improving production efficiency and reducing costs. The authors hypothesized that decreased humidity would lead to faster drying, ultraviolet (UV) light exposure would not affect the paint colors differently, white light exposure would allow for...

Analysis of Patterns in the Harmonics of a String with Artificially Enforced Nodes

Analysis of Patterns in the Harmonics of a String with Artificially Enforced Nodes

Broadbent et al. | Jan 28, 2021

This study examines the higher harmonics in an oscillating string by analyzing the sound produced by a guitar with a spectrum analyzer. The authors mathematically hypothesized that the higher harmonics in the series of the directly excited 2nd harmonic contain the alternate frequencies...

Exploring a Possible Link Between ADHD and Inattentional Blindness

Exploring a Possible Link Between ADHD and Inattentional Blindness

Bowen et al. | Dec 21, 2020

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is characterized by impulsivity, hyperactivity, and inattention. The authors hypothesized that people with ADHD would display more inattentional blindness in perceptually simple tasks and less inattentional blindness in perceptually complex tasks....

The Effect of School Climate and Parenting Style on Academic Achievement

The Effect of School Climate and Parenting Style on Academic Achievement

Scott et al. | Dec 16, 2020

Research suggests that less effective styles of parenting tend to negatively affect grades, and more effective styles tend to produce higher grades. In this study, the authors verify previous research and confirm such relationships in a sample of African American students in a college preparatory...
