Why you should take part in extra curricular activities?

They look good on a college resume and show you get involved with your school. Some extracurricular activities also show some of your interests.

Perhaps more importantly, they help to broaden your mind and social skills. Education isn't, or shouldn't be, just learning exam material.

Why were marines on the shores of Tripoli?

The Barbary Pirates War was the reason. City states along Northern Africa had been pirating and charging ransoms on U.S. ships during the very beginning of the nation's history. The young US Navy was sent to defeat them and stop piracy.

Atoms and Atomic Structure

How do you determine the shape of a molecule?

First, you must draw the Lewis dot structure of the molecule. If you don't know how, look at the Related Questions link to the left of this answer for step-by-step instructions on how to do that. Once you have a completed structure, you are ready to continue!

To determine the shape of a molecule, or its geometry, we use something called VSEPR Theory, which is short for Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory. It's actually pretty simple! In short, it says that the electrons in bonds and lone-pairs around an atom will stay as far away from each other as possible! That's it! OK-- but how do we use it?

The first thing you have to figure out is something called the steric number, which I'll abbreviate SN. We are going to do this for each atom that has more than one atom bonded to it. To do this, we look at our Lewis dot structure and use this formula:

Steric number = SN = the number of bonds + the number of lone pairs NOTE: the number of bonds just counts each bond once, even if it is a double or triple bond. Don't worry about those yet... we'll get to that later!

Now, the steric number (or SN) will tell us the geometry of the molecule. I'm going to make a distinction between what I call the "geometry" and what I call the "shape." You'll see what I mean, but not all teachers will do this. The geometry is determined by how many things are attached to the atom, including both bonded atom, and lone pairs. The geometry determines the angles between the bonded atoms and the lone pairs. However, the shape is different. When you look at a molecule, you see where the atoms are, not the lone pairs. So the shape is given by where the atoms are located. But the lone pairs often determine where the atoms are located, so first we have to find the geometry, and then we use that to get the shape! Don't worry... I'll explain this more.

As I said, the steric number (or SN) determines the geometry of the molecule. So, here they are (if something has SN = 1, it's easy! It has to be linear!):

SN = 2 ---> geometry is linear (with an angle of 180°)

SN = 3 ---> geometry is trigonal planar (with all angles equal to 120°)

SN = 4 ---> geometry is tetrahedral (with all angles equal to 109.5°)

SN = 5 ---> geometry is trigonal bipyramidal (angles of 90° and 120°)

SN = 6 ---> geometry is octahedral (all angles equal 90°)

OK, now we'll use the geometry to determine the shape. It gets a bit tricker now. We now have to count how many bonds and how many lone pairs there are around each atom (again double and triple bonds only count as one bond). For each value of SN above, the can be several possibilities. I will go through them one by one.

To help you, look at the Web Links to the left of this answer for pictures.

The table at the bottom of the linked Wikipedia page will be especially useful here. Notice the steric number is listed on the left. They use the same idea of geometry versus shape, but the name of the shape is listed directly under each molecule in the chart.

The Ausetute page is also good, except note that they don't call the steric number the "Total number of electron pairs," and they call the geometry the "Arrangement of electron pairs."

SN = 2

-- 1 bond, 1 lone pair: The shape is linear! There is only one thing attached!

-- 2 bonds: The shape is linear. There is one atom in the middle, with two atoms on either side, all in a straight line. The angle formed is 180°.

SN = 3

-- 2 bonds, 1 lone pair: The shape is bent. There is one atom with two atoms attached to it, coming out in a V-shape. The angles formed are approximately 120° and 240°

-- 3 bonds: The shape is trigonal planar. There is one atom with three atoms around it, all in the same plane. The angle between each atom is 120°.

SN = 4

-- 2 bonds, 2 lone pairs: The shape is bent. There is one atom with two atoms attached to it, coming out in a V-shape. The angles formed are approximately 109° and 251°

-- 3 bonds, 1 lone pair: The shape is trigonal pyramidal. There is one atom with three atoms bonded to it, but they are all lower than it (like a camera on a tripod), and there is a lone pair sticking straight up. The angles between the bonded atoms are all approximately 109°

-- 4 bonds: The shape is tetrahedral. There is one atom in the middle, with four atoms around it. The angles between each atom is 109.5°

SN = 5

There are many possibilities here, but I will only do one:

-- 5 bonds: The shape is trigonal bipyramidal.

Other shapes possible for SN=5 are T-shaped, see-saw, linear, and bent. SN = 6

Again, there are many possibilities here, but these two are most common:

-- 4 bonds and 2 lone pairs: The shape is square planar, with 90° and 180° angles between each of the bonded atoms, all in the same plane

-- 6 bonds: The shape is octahedral, with 90° between all bonds.

You can also have these shapes for SN = 6: square pyramidal, T-shape, and linear. Again, LOOK AT THE WEB LINKS FOR PICTURES! Use the pictures along with what I've written here and it will make much more sense!

There are some other things that affect the shape of a molecule. Double bonds and triple bonds take up more space than single bonds, and so they tend to push the other bonds away from each other distorting the shape. Lone pairs do that also. To remember this rule, I say "LONE PAIRS ARE FAT"!

Often times, a follow-up question will ask to state overall polarity after determining shape. See the related question below.

How important is it to have a lot of extra-curricular activities on your resume when applying to college?

Extracurricular activities are important for college admissions... but maybe not for the reason you think there.Your question popped out to me because you didn't ask if extracurriculars are important, but if having a LOT of them is important. And the answer to that is... NO.For some reason, people seem to think that the more “stuff” you have in your college application, the better your chances are at getting in. This is not true. In fact, admissions committees can always spot a stuffed resume, and it’s an instant red flag. When it comes to extracurricular activities, it's all about DEPTH, not BREADTH.Colleges don't want their students to be involved in extracurricular activities just for the sake of it. These activities are important because it shows the admissions committees what you care about and what you will bring to their campus community. So instead of PACKING your "resume" with 50 activities in which you are very casually involved (going to one meeting a month or...a year!), what you SHOULD be doing is figuring out what you LOVE to do and what you're passionate about. Is that art? Is it rescuing animals? Is it theater? Is it politics? It doesn't matter what you're getting involved in, so long as it is something you care about. Because when you care about something, you'll naturally want to get very involved in it and dedicate your time to it. And THAT is what the schools want to see. Pick two or three activities that you love/can excel at, get involved early, and then continue to get more and more involved over time so you can take on leadership roles and make an impact. This is going to give you lots of awesome stuff to write about/show off in your apps, of course. But even more, since this is stuff you already care about, you'll actually enjoy the time you're spending and you'll learn a lot and you'll grow a lot... and those are all great things that are going to benefit you once you get INTO college!

How do you marry an illegal immigrant in the US and then apply for him to become a permanent resident?

You get married the normal way, just as if you were marryng another American.

If the alien is illegal because he overstayed his visa, you would file for adjustment of status after getting married and wait for the greencard here in the states.

if the alien is illegal because he snuck into the country, you would file the I-130 then file for the K-3 in his country. He'd be denied and you'd then file the I-601

2 kinds of seamanship?

There's actually 3 types, but most consider Deck and Marlinespike to be the primary 2.

Deck Seamanship - General seamanship that involves the work that goes on about the ship's deck, as well as the equipment used to perform that work. Such examples are Mooring, Anchoring, Rigging, and Handling.

Boat Seamanship - Anything involved with the handling of small boats.

Marlinespike Seamanship - Marlinespike seamanship concerns the use and care of mooring/rigging lines. It centers on the art of forming knots, making splices in rope and line, and fashioning useful and decorative articles from lines, twine, and similar material. Making a heaving line ("heavie)" is one example of the different aspects of Marlinespike seamanship used to create a very necessary and useful item.

Where did Jarhead come from?

It is believed to have been granted them by the US Navy who implied that their scalps were smooth and shiny like a Mason Jar and that the jar was quite empty. It was intended as a derogatory slur, but became an honored part of Marine Corps Tradition. Marines do not take it as a put-down, and rather like the term. For Marines few things are of greater importance then the location of the bayonet lug on the newfangled rifle and which direction is the enemy.

The Difference Between

What is the purpose of a car valves and what is the difference between a 12 valve and a 16 valve engine?

Close one hole of your nose and try to breath in. Feel any difference. Coming back to the subject. By increasing the # of valves you get the below features. a) better combustion chamber shape, resulting in better combustion, resulting in better power and fuel economy.

There are intake valves and exhaust valves. On the intake side, the intake valve opens which lets the fuel/air mixture into the combusion chamber. At some point (measured in degrees of crank rotation) the intake valve closes, the air/fuel mixture is compressed and ignited by the spark plug. Then the spent mixture exits the cylinder when the exhaust valve opens. Valve configuration varies somewhat, but regardless of how many valves there are there will always be at least one intake and one exhaust valve. Some cylinder heads have 2 intake and 2 exhaust valves which is what is described as the 4-valve per cylinder setup.

As the first two responders pointed out, you have intake valves, which let air in a diesel, or air plus gas in a gasoline engine, into the cylinder; and exhaust valves, which let the spent gases leave the cylinder.

One important thing multiple valves can do for you is to let the spark plug be put in the center of the cylinder, from where the flame front can radiate evenly through the chamber.

A 16-valve engine (if it's a 4-cylinder) has two intake and two exhaust valves. A 16-valve engine could also be an 8-cylinder engine with 1 intake and 1 exhaust valve per cylinder. A 12-valve engine has two intake and one exhaust valve (if it's a 4 cylinder engine). a 12-valve engine may also be a 6-cylinder engine with 1 intake and 1 exhaust valve per cylinder.
