Question

A 4-ton air conditioner removes 5.06×107
J (48,000 British thermal
units) from a cold environment in 1.00 h. (a) What energy input in joules
is necessary to do this if the air conditioner has an energy efficiency
rating ( EER ) of 12.0? (b) What is the cost of doing this if the work costs
10.0 cents per 3.60×106
J (one kilowatt-hour)? (c) Discuss whether
this cost seems realistic. Note that the energy efficiency rating ( EER ) of
an air conditioner or refrigerator is defined to be the number of British
thermal units of heat transfer from a cold environment per hour divided by
the watts of power input.

Question

It was once recorded that a Jaguar left skid marks that were 290m in length. Assuming that the Jaguar skidded to a stop with a constant acceleration on -3.9m/s, determine the speed of the jaguar before it began to skid.
I have done this twice and I always get 0 for an answer...I figured that the final velocity is 0, the distance 290 and the acceleration -3.9...is this incorrect? I use the vf{squared}=vi{squared}+2ad equation...am i using the wrong one...or am i just calculating it incorrectly? Please help...I really don't like physics right now... =(

Question

ICT has potential to make significant inroads in a traditional agrarian economy like India. Indian agro-sector has been exploiting the benefits to ICT. Innovative ICT application platforms are being created by private sector players in conjunction with local farmers. One such private initiative has been by ITC Ltd in the state of Madhya Pradesh. It has helped the farmers in many ways, such as developing of local leadership, shared ownership of the assets created in this initiative, access to the latest knowledge for the agro-sector, sustainable income levels and skill development for productivity improvement. This initiative from ITC[1] has become a benchmark today in the ICT initiatives in agro-sector. Several best practices can be learned from this initiative, namely:
· ease of replicability and scalability
· customization to meet the specific local needs and
· organizational commitment.

E-CHOUPAL CONCEPT

e-choupal is a Hindi word which means “village meeting place”. Market is a meeting place where vendors and customers come together to do transactions. e-choupal is a virtual market place where farmers can transact directly with a processor and can realize better price for their produce. e-choupal has the advantages of the market but spans very large varieties of vendors and customers. Geographical distances do not restrict participation in the e-choupal. The main disadvantage of conventional market is that information asymmetry is inherent in the market where as e-choupal provides for transparent transactions. This enables the participation of smaller as well as larger players. Elimination of some layers of intermediaries allows for larger share of profits to reach the lower end of value chain. The main attractiveness of e-choupal is that it can be used for connecting large producers/small producers and small users/large users, thereby eliminating the need for hierarchy of brokers. Internet is used as a low transaction cost backbone for communication. Physical delivery of produce to the processor is still done through the existing intermediaries. e-choupal does not attempt total elimination of intermediaries, as intermediaries are indispensable in economy like India where intermediaries are adding value to the every step of value chain at a low cost. Intermediaries have the expertise in storage, transportation, quality assessment and counter party risk reduction, which are difficult to replicate. e-Choupal provides farmers with all the market information and this helps them to become market oriented. In e-choupal intermediaries are leveraged but they are disintermediated from the market information flowing to the farmers.

The success of e-choupal has heralded a new era in the Indian agro-sector. The work needs to be carried forward and replicated in the other untapped areas. Creating business channels that can create a win-win situation both business and farming community has enormous economies of scope. Once a channel is created it could be used for many products and services as shown in this case study. The main reasons for the success of the platform have been the involvement of local farmers and maintenance of the rural IT network by the corporate entity.

Questions to be answered:

· What is the role of ICT in creating a successful market in Rural India?
· Explain the concept of E-choupal and its impact?

Why do people usually act in ways that are considered to be
acceptable to others? Why do people sometimes act in ways
that are not acceptable? How do societies try to ensure that
acceptable, rather than unacceptable, behaviour occurs most
often? These are three major questions to be dealt with in this
lesson. This lesson will investigate further what sociologists call
deviance and social control. An understanding of these concepts
helps you to make better judgements about acceptable behaviour,
deviant behaviour, and how society should deal with both.

• explain, from a sociological perspective, how membership in a
subculture influences behaviour
