You are also welcome to use an article you find on your own, as long as it meets the criteria for a scientific model.Article critiques: Create a new thread and post a critique of an article. Your critique should be at least 300 words and should address the following questions:How would you describe the model? What is it made of? What does it do? What research question(s) did the authors investigate? What did the researchers learn by using this model? What were their results? How did the researchers make sure their model is credible? Do you think it is trustworthy enough to investigate their research question(s)? Was a physical model a good choice for this study, in your opinion? Include a link or full citation for your source material.Reply posts:Next, write substantive, thoughtful replies to at least two of your peers’ posts. Reply posts should address the following prompts:Do you agree with the assessment in the original post? If you do agree, indicate what convinced you. If you don’t agree, explain why. What other research questions might be addressed by the model? What other types of models might address the research aims? You may also share any prior knowledge or personal experience you have with the topic to enrich the discussion.Post 1 to reply: The article that I chose simulates an automobile crash with the first pregnant crash dummy. I chose this article because many of my friends recently gave birth or are currently pregnant, so I thought it would be an interesting read and maybe I could give them a few facts about driving while pregnant. The purpose of this simulation was to test a hybrid insert that goes around the womans belly and evaluate how well it does against impact towards the fetus and its maternal compartments. The item is supposed to be an insert that has an elasticized vinyl uterine shell (Pearlman, 1996). This model evaluates the points of impact on the fetus on impact, and they tested at various speeds. The placement of the seatbelt was also a crucial factor. Having the seatbelt laying over the belly (improper placement) resulted in three to four times the force of impact on the uterus at all different speed trials, whereas having it under the belly (recommended placement by The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) caused less trauma. The impact it had on the fetal head and thoracic acceleration (gravity) at an increment of 5mph each increased 100% each time. By experimenting with this, the loss of pregnancy was still inevitable, unfortunately. Many pregnant women involved in minor accidents lose their baby after the fact most of the time. The article really highlights the fact that seat belts are especially crucial. It also points out that some women dont like to wear seat belts or reposition them improperly for comfort. I think its unfortunate for pregnant women to suffer such inconveniences. I find this article to be credible and trustworthy enough to investigate their research questions. I think in this modern time of technology, we should be able to invent a safe, effective, and comfortable seat belt for pregnant women. This physical model was a good choice to study in my opinion! I might think that because of my bias towards pregnancy. I only want the mother and baby to be healthy and safe, before and after birth.ReferencesPearlman, Mark D., and David Viano.

My understanding of the experiment is that they used actual snow and maintained a temperature of -10 degrees celsius in their test environment. This snow was then put on a shake table that moved horizontally and then vertically as well as the experiment became more complex. One of the biggest questions they seemed to be researching was how a weak layer of snow impacted if and the way an avalanche occurs. From there they were researching the different impacts that different movements at different angles had on the snow. They were asking how the snow reacted to several kinds of oscillations. They learned a lot about the strength in the layers of snow and how they strengthen or weaken when they are shaken or have stress put on them. I think they made this model credible by looking at several different types of motion. As we now know earthquakes are not all the same and they run their course for a range of amounts of time, this experiment allowed for that. It also allowed for the fact that avalanches happen on slopes, they didnt simply shake now on a flat surface but tested several angles. It is by no means a perfect investigation but it is a simplification of the real world that is generating data that can be used. I think for the reasons above this is a fairly trustworthy experiment. They also recognize that there is more research to be done if we really want to understand these questions. Finally I think this was a good choice of model for this study. I think it would be cool to see it on a slightly larger scale, for example a larger shake table, but they were able to demonstrate numerous scenarios and come with data.Podolskiy, Evgeny A., Kouichi Nishimura, Osamu Abe, and Pavel A.

Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?
We complete each paper from scratch and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check it for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism detection systems that are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.
We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness.
Is there a money-back guarantee? If yes, how can I receive a refund?
You can certainly get your money back in several cases. You can receive a full refund if you have paid for your order twice or if you have placed two identical orders. In case your paper was late or the quality of the paper does not correspond to your expectations, you will get compensation for these issues.
Do you keep a database of pre-written essays?
No, we do not have such a database. All papers you order from us are written from scratch. This means your paper is unique and has never been published before—neither will it be published after we deliver it to you.
When will my custom paper be done?
While placing an order with WritersHub, you can choose a period of time within which a paper should be delivered to you. The countdown until the specified deadline starts automatically from the moment we receive your payment in our system. For example, if you pay for your order at 6pm on Monday and choose a 3-day delivery option, you will receive your custom paper by 6pm on Thursday.
Remember that a writer needs a sufficient amount of time in order to conduct thorough research. Therefore, please choose the most suitable deadline when you place an order. Moreover, the later you need your paper to be delivered to you, the cheaper it will be. Thus, you will be able to save your money while your writer will have enough time to work on your order and ensure its quality.
Make sure you upload all the additional materials at the very beginning. If you fail to do that, the deadline for your order will be postponed as well.
I haven’t received my custom paper by the deadline. What should I do?
Let us know immediately about that. You can do it by writing a message on Facebook or email us. Our support manager will carefully examine your order and will assist you with it right away. The reasons for late delivery may vary from time to time. It can happen that you have entered a wrong email address or your spam filter does not allow you to receive emails from us. It is also possible that the writer is waiting for your reply and can not continue working without your assistance, or we are checking the work for plagiarism. Whatever the case may be, contact us if you have any problems with getting your order on time.
