Answers to Density calculations

P1 = .1716353 g/cm3

P2 = .1581793 g/cm3

Average P = .1649073 g/cm3

The SI unit is kg/m3 so we need to either multiply the average to1000 or move the decimal over to the right three times. Final mean density would be 164.9073 kg/m3.

More data work to come soon this week.

UAF Museum

Just down the road from the Geophysical Institute is the University of Alaska Museum. This afternoon, I

spent most of my time awing at the overwhelming exhibitions of Alaskan history and culture, wildlife, and Arctic's physical and biological features. http://www.uaf.Alaska.edu/museum

Did you know that the Trans Alaska pipeline is 800 miles long?
Did you know that Fairbanks are mined primarily for gold AND silver?
Other parts of Alaska are mined for copper, lead, zinc, tin, and molybdenum.

Did you know that there are six aspects of a salmon's life cycle? Egg, Alevin, Fingerling, Smolted Fingerling, Feeder, and Spawning Adult

Did you know that Kate Carmack, wife of a wealthy gold miner was prevented from staking a claim since she was Indian?

Did you know that the colliding of energetic parcticles and molecules of atmospheric gas produce Auroral colors?

1. I can't seem to get a good picture of a moose near Poker Flat. They are cautious around vehicles so I'd figured this would be my best bet. I've only seen females (also known as cows).

2. Tundra swans (Cygnus columbianus) are found in tundra ponds from the Arctic coast to the Alaskan peninsula. Their significant feature is the yellow spot before their eyes. TEA teacher, Kim Hanisch from Nebraska will be studying these swans as well as other waterfowl this summer. ../tea_h anischfrontpage.html

3. Ravens are one of the few all year round residents of Fairbanks. Migratory birds will return home in March and April.
