'A play in which thought often gets in the way of action'. How much do you agree with this assessment of Hamlet?

The three main points that could be made of this statement are: Hamlet himself is not a man of action, unlike many of Shakespeare's leading men. He spends much of the play brooding and plotting rather than fighting battles, and only truly accepts a call to arms at the denoument of the play in his fencing match with Laertes. Attention could be drawn here to Hamlets age, which is rarely cast as young as he is written.  An analysis of the key events of the play, all (baring the fight at the end, and the killing of Polonius) are quiet scenes with generally few characters. A contrast could be made here to plays such as Macbeth & Anthony and Cleopatra, where battles and violent events often for the prelude or aftermath of scenes. In addition, the scenes that are the most known are those with no action whatsoever.  Thirdly, there could be the arguement made that the entire play is driven by the actions of Hamlet himself, and thus is entirely action (albeit of a different sort to that of most Shakespearan plays). The supporting characters all wish to continue with their lives, and it is the actions of Hamlet which bring events to bear.  Finally, a conclusion should sum up the arguments for and against the statement, and reach a consesus.

Describe the basic principles of ultrasound imaging (2 marks)

Ultrasound is any frequency above that of human hearing - around 20 kilohertz. Ultrasound imaging works by emitting a known intensity of ultrasound at a specific frequency, and capturing the reflected sound from whatever is being imaged. at each boundary between different materials (whether manufactured or living tissues), a certain percentage of the ultrasound is transmitted, and a certain percentage reflected. By calculating the time between emission and the return of the reflected wave, the distance of that boundary can be found.

Find the integral between 1 and -2 for (4-x^2-3x^3)

= [4x - 1/3x3 - 3/4x4]1-2 = (4(1) - 1/3(1)3 - 3/4(1)4)  -  (4(-2) - 1/3(-2)3 - 3/4(-2)4) =(2 11/12) - (-8 + 8/3 - 12) =(2 11/12) - (-17 1/3) = 20 1/4

What is the effect of an increase in substrate concentration on the rate of reaction?

An increase in the substrate concentration increases the rate of reaction initially as more enzyme-substrate collisions occur, resultng in more enzyme-substrate complexes being formed. Eventually maximum velocity is reached meaning that all active site are occupied with substrates so that further increases in the substrate concentration will not cause a change in the reaction rate. (Enzymes are working at their fastest rate)

What is the difference betweenle Passé Simple and le Passé Composé ?

The Passé simple expresses an action that happened and ended in the past. This action has not impact on the present. It is mainly used to state a succession of actions that happened in the past : "il marcha, il mangea, puis il se reposa". The Passé simple is not usually used when speaking. Still, texts are often written using passé simple. On the other hand, the Passé composé is widely used when speaking French. It is about stating that an action that happened in the past still has consequences on the present : "il A MANGE des fraises, ces fraises sont bonnes."

Write 180g as a fraction of 3Kg. Give your answer in its simplest form.

When thinking about making a fraction out of two numbers you need to find a common denominator. With this example to be able to compare 180g and 3kg you need to find the common denominator between the two. How can we make both numbers comparable to one another as grams and kilograms aren't the same unit. How many grams go into a kilogram? 1000g, so there are 3000g in 3kg. You can now make this into a fraction. 180/3000. At this point you need to simplify the fraction. You can take off the last 0 on both 180 and 3000, as 18/300 is equivalent to 180/3000, this is the first step of simplifying the fraction. Now you need to find a common number that is divisible into both 18 and 300, I would go with 3. So now you divide both numbers by 3 and 6. You can go through each number individually and divide by 3 & 6 but the quickest way is to divide by the highest common denominator, in this scenario is 6. 18/6 = 3 and 300/6 = 50. So the answer is 3/50 as there is no other number in which both numbers can be divided into to make a simpler form.

Explain/describe the Humanistic Approach.

The Humanistic Approach aims to the replace the Behaviourist and Psychodynamic approaches to human behaviour. It was championed by Abraham Maslow who wanted psychology to be less deterministic and more holistic. The approach is therefore concerned with human experiences, uniquness, meaning, freedom and choice. Maslow claimed that human beings are self-determining and have free-will so are not affected by external factors - they control their own development. Humans are motivated beyond the basic needs of survival and that our true desire is to grow as people an achieve self-actualisation (peak experiences and ultimate fulfilment). This can be achieved by working through a motivational hierarchy of needs that starts with basic physiological needs such as sleeping and eating, progresses through the needs of safety, love and belonging and esteem and is topped by self-actualisation. The process of working through the hierarchy is suggested to be aided if we have positive feelings about our self, have congruency between our real and perceived self and are not placed under any conditions of worth by others. The Humanistic approach thus illustrates how we can achieve ultimate psychological health and clearly shows the reasons one may be lacking it.
