What is the shape of cannon ball's trajectory?

Due to gravity, all projectiles will form an "arc" (curve) while in flight; but will not be visiable to the eye (only by studying the target). Howitzers & mortars have visable arcs, they are designed for indirect fire (target cannot be seen) and can lob shells over hills & forests (jungles). Guns are direct fire cannons and have the least arc; these are predominately mounted on warships. Naval guns (also known as rifles) aim at their target (another warship) and fire, just like an infantryman does with his rifle. The longer the range, the more arc.

Tank guns are copied from naval guns and are fired the same way; direct fire. The first tank guns were naval guns; as only the navy had cannon capable of being fired from within an enclosed turret. The army only had "field pieces" which rolled backwards upon firing (later they had recoil mechanisms).

In addition, traditional cannonballs (as fired from old-style muzzel-loading pieces such at the prototypical Napoleon field piece) were fired in particular manner when used against infantry targets. The basic trajectory was a flat arc, as normal for a ballistic object. However, as the target was a mass of infantry, it was found that the way to produce the most casualties was to "skip" the cannonball into the infantry - that is, rather than fire the cannonball so as to try to directly hit the infantry mass, the point was to allow the cannonball to hit several dozen yards in advance of the infantry. If the ground was sufficiently firm, the velocity and spin on the cannonball would make it bounce, in a manner similar to a flat stone being skipped across a pond. This meant that the cannonball would cut a large path through the infantry formation, rather than just hitting a small number of people. In this context, the shape of the cannonball's tragectory is a series of connected arches, rather than a single arch from cannon to target.

Dewey Decimal System

What are the disadvanatges and advantages of Dewey decimal classification scheme?

The advantages of the Dewey Decimal Classification systemThe Dewey Decimal Classification system is universal because of its numerical notation. Since there are different alphabets, a system based on Arabic numerals is used throughout the world.

Documents are classified by subject. Those interested or specialized in a particular topic can find all the documents they need under the same classification.

Three easily overcome disadvantages of the Dewey Decimal Classification system
  1. Classification by subject and not by topic

    For example, the topic of drug use is discussed in psychology (157), sociology (363.45) and medical (616.863) books. Three disciplines deal with the this topic in their own way. Books on drug use can therefore have different call numbers under the Dewey system.

    Nonetheless, an alphabetic catalogue of topics (used in both computerized and non-computerized libraries) makes it possible to locate these books.

    A reader who needs information on drug use (or any other topic) will consult the subject catalogue or the subject heading in a library and documentation centre management software program. He or she will obtain a list of all the books that deal with drug use, regardless of the disciplinary angle from which it is studied.

  2. The same topic can be studied within two different disciplines

    Let's go back to the example of books on drug use. If a group of authors publishes a book on all the aspects of drug use, this book cannot be stored in three different places. In this case, the librarian assigning the call number will determine under which subject the book will be classified.

    Again, if the reader consults the subject catalogue or the subject heading in a library management program, he or she will obtain a list of all the books that deal with drug use, regardless of the disciplinary angle from which it is studied.

  3. The length and complexity of call numbers discourages some users

    The Dewey call number can be regarded as an address. If I have to meet Mr. X and I know that he lives at 641 Elm Street, the address tells me where to go. The same is true of the Dewey call number; I don't need to know whether Mr. X lives alone, or if he has children, a cat or a dog-nor do I need to understand all the intellectual criteria librarians use to determine if a book is to be classified under such and such a call number.

    With regard to the length of the call numbers, remember that elementary and even secondary school libraries use the abridged Dewey Decimal Classification system (no more than 3 digits after the decimal point) to simplify the classification.

    Difficulties often arise when books are arranged by people who do not understand the decimal system. This is now less of a problem for students since decimal notation is a compulsory topic in elementary Cycle Two mathematics under the Québec Education Program.

    Lastly, to facilitate access to books even more, most school libraries have decided not to use the 800 class (literature), which categorizes works by genre, era and country. Literary works (e.g. novels, albums) are therefore simply stored under the letter F (for fiction) and then subdivided by the names of authors listed in alphabetical order.

Research Papers

What are the benefits of using a library for research?

There are many benefits of using a library for research: wide range of reference materials; librarian helpers; isolated focus; room for collaborators; multiple computers in same area; people to meet; travel broadens the mind; etc.

"Range of reference materials": Probably the best benefit would be the range of reference materials, such as multiple professional encyclopedias, numerous books, and thousands of magazines on file. You can use library computers, even with the internet, to get a title or ISBN book number, then retrieve that from a shelf. Despite the vastness of the Internet, large libraries typically have far more scholarly books, but the Internet typically has much more trivia.

"Librarian helpers": depending on the situation, the librarians might be able to help your research. Perhaps they know the best books, or an in-house expert, or can tell you when books might be available at the library.

"Isolated focus": For many people, just getting away from home or work, to avoid distractions, might be the best benefit of a library. Few TV or phone interruptions to destroy deep concentration when trying to analyze information. However, know your library: if the area is swamped with young kids at that time, the distractions might become worse. However, some large libraries have private "study rooms" to block out sights and sounds.

"Room for collaborators": If you're working with a group, such as trying to find sunken Spanish galleons, then a library might provide more space for everyone than at home or work. Each person could look for historical reports in different departments, then meet back to determine progress. Inside "study rooms" a few people could meet and hold a private conversation, without the whispering of main library rooms.

"Multiple computers in same area": Depending on hourly restrictions, a library can offer multiple computers, to allow all friends to use the computers at the same time, or to keep going if your home computer is broken or gets those computer viruses purposely allowed by computer companies to make you buy another computer or buy another anti-virus product. You might even be allowed to use 2 computers at the same time, displaying multiple windows on each screen: it's great to have one screen totally stable, while viewing various pages on another computer.

"People to meet": Other researchers might be found at the library, to offer suggestions for better books or whom else to ask. However, be careful not to get sidetracked off-topic: people can be very stubborn, and you must ask yourself, "Is this conversation 50-50, or am I a slave 90% to the other person's agenda?"

"Travel broadens the mind": Just roaming through various library rooms can be an awakening, similar to travelling the world. There is that cliche, "You think you know, but you have no idea." For example, in Cairo, Egypt, with 20 million people, someone might imagine terrible crimes about to happen since 20 million people are all around, but the culture is very strong against theft (or terrorism), and packages rarely get stolen in Egypt, compared to other places. Another example: in Tokyo crowded with over 9 million people, surely there would be city trash and fast-moving people too busy for politeness, but no: travel to Japan and see everyone sweeping sidewalks at their downtown stores, washing tires before entering streets, and notice how people politely dim their headlights toward other drivers while at redlights. Perhaps just as surprising, some libraries might contain mini-museums, paintings, or posters, beyond just books, journals or computers. Something about being at the library might change the whole perspective about the ongoing research.

Anyway, sometimes hanging out at a library can become addictive, leaving the everyday world behind, so be careful not to lose track of time, and try to keep everything in balance, overall. Good luck.

Dewey Decimal System

What are the sections of the library?

Libraries are broadly divided into fiction and nonfiction.

However, different libraries subdivide their material differently - often according to the needs of their client base. In a public library for instance you would find the following sections:-

Adult Fiction; Large Print (Fiction and Nonfiction); Young Adult Fiction; Junior Fiction (including picture books); Audio Books (Fiction & Nonfiction); Nonfiction; and Reference. There may also be a separate area for journals and newspapers.

However some modern public libraries go a little bit further in their design and have subdivided their nonfiction collections according to subject or theme - eg. all nonfiction and reference (not for loan) material is shelved together in defined areas, or 'rooms', according to broad themes such as Travel (includes learning a foreign language material), Art & Photography, Film & Literature, Music, Health & Sport, Law & Business, Philosophy, Local Studies, History, Agriculture & Gardening, Science & Technology.

Other public libraries may choose slightly different themes and may only subdivide a portion of their collection. This arrangement is called The Living Room concept and is showcased by Tamworth City Library in NSW, Australia. Included in the arrangement are lots of comfy lounges and study tables so you can enjoy your browsing at leisure.

University Libraries would arrange their collections differently again and may in fact hold library collections in more than one building. School Libraries again would possibly cater to a more standardized arrangement (Fiction, Nonfiction, Reference, Magazines), and Special Libraries would have their collections arranged according to the needs of their particular clients (eg. Law Firm library, Hospital library).

Are Government documents in a library classified as Library of Congress?

If you do visit a Federal Depository Library, chances are that you will not find their government information organized by the Dewey Decimal classification system -- or the Library of Congress classification system. Instead, you may encounter the "SuDocs" classification system. SuDocs is named from the Superintendent of Documents -- the person and office who heads the Federal Depository Library Program portion of GPO.

The SuDocs system classifies government publications by the agencies (and offices within an agency) who issue a particular publication. A SuDocs number begins with one or two letters which stand for the issuing agency. For example, publications issued by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture begin with the letter "A" -- those issued by the Dept. of Defense begin with the letter "D" -- those issued from the Dept. of Interior begin with the letter "I" etc.

After the letter(s), a SuDocs number will then contain arbitrary numbers which represent offices or sub-agencies within the main agency. For example, publications from the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture's Forest Service will be classified and shelved with a stem that starts out A 13. Publications issued by USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service will begin with a stem of A 101. Publications issued by the Dept. of Interior's Geological Survey will begin with a stem of I 19.Publications issued by the Dept. of Interior's National Park Service will begin with a stem of I 29.
