highlighting his accomplishments and includes a chronology of
his life. An analysis is also included which looks at the
scientists life in the perspective of the times in which he lived.
Highlighted is the fact that he discovered the concept of color
blindness and developed the atomic theory of matter. An

Alfred Nobel and The Invention Of Nitroglycerin :
A 7 page paper that recounts the history and effects of Alfred
Nobel's trials with nitroglycerin. Contrary to popular belief,
Nobel did not invent nitroglycerin, but his invention of
dynamite, its first usable form, was a significant breakthrough
for the scientific community as well as industrialization.

Action And Physical Properties Of Magma : An 8 page
paper discussing the origin, movement and physical attributes of
the substance that is known as lava once it exits its volcano.
Formed under intense heat (up to 4300C) and pressure, magma
has no choice but to rise. The absolute chemical composition
varies according to location on the earths surface, and chemical
changes in the magma as it moves toward the surface opening it
seeks can span a range of changes as minerals are precipitated
out of the magma and sink downward through it again.
Regrettably, old mudflows of prior eruptions appear to many to
be good homesites as builders populate the paths of former
mudflow channels with homes in the shadow of still-active
volcanoes. Bibliography lists 9 sources. Magma.wps
Cadmium In The Environment : A 10 page paper
the effects of environmental cadmium. Cadmium is a naturally
occurring element, a heavy metal found in conjunction with
iron, zinc and copper ores. Once used heavily in electronics
manufacturing and believed not to affect the water supply,
research has discovered that cadmium does indeed leach
through the soil, affecting both ground and surface water. It can
be taken up by plants growing in contaminated soil and then
ingested by humans. Cadmium is cumulative in its effects, and
the dangers of long-term, low-level exposure include cancer,
kidney disease and reproductive problems, and may also
contribute to other physical conditions. Bibliography lists 32
RNA Polymerase II Holoenzyme : A 10 page paper that
