I chose to watch a Game Theory video and write about it.
There are four things to describe sound; wavelength, period, amplitude, and frequency. Frequency measures how many ripples there are a second when you pull a string; the number of times it goes back to that position is its frequency. This measure of cycles per second is measured in hertz. Anyone can hear between 20Hz and 20kHz and anything below 20 hertz is called infrasound. Infrasound can affect people in very weird ways. When he played that infrasound in the video, I didn’t hear it, but I felt it. Every part of your body vibrates at a different frequency and that is called resonant frequency. When a fan goes at 19Hz the same frequency as your eye, some people see grey figures. There is an elevator known as the elevator of hell, making you become nauseous as little as going down two floors. That effect was made from a bent fan. That is called vibroacoustic syndrome. So, if you find the right frequency as the head and give that frequency a lot of power, the head will stretch and stretch until the head can’t stretch anymore, exploding a head. That measures down to decibels. Using a chainsaw would be about 110dB. Anything that is over 125 dB will hurt you. At 130dB your ear would undergo distortion and will affect your ability to understand speech. At about 150dB, you will start to be nauseous and feel whole body vibrations. At 166dB it will be hard to breathe because the low frequency pulses start impacting your lungs. Reaching at a critical infrasound starting at 177dB can force you to breathe against your will. Because the head is so well insulated, to pop someone’s head would take about 240dB. There is a machine called L(ong)R(ange)A(coustic)D(evice) playing sounds from over two miles long. That machine can send out infrasound. It can reach about 162dB without breaking a sweat. And if you turn off the safety, there was no documentation of how high pitched it can get. If some enemy got this, they could kill tons of people by just turning up volume!
Career Interest Inventory:
I asked my mom if I could research careers I’m interested in, so she found tests I could take that figure out which careers best fit my interests. This morning I took two career tests, one online and one on paper. On the paper test, my scores were,
- 0 in farming
- 1 in architecture
- 7 in theater arts
- 0 in business management
- 1 in teaching
- 0 in finance
- 1 in government
- 2 in health science
- 0 in tourism
- 2 in human services
- 9 in information technology
- 1 in law and security
- 0 in manufacturing
- 0 in marketing
- 7 in S.T.E.M.
- 0 in transportation
My top three interest areas were 1# information technology, 2# S.T.E.M., and 3# theater arts.
On the online test I got the following scores:
- 15 in Marketing
- 14 in art tech and communications
- 14 in human services
- 14 in info tech
- 12 in teaching
- 12 in tourism
- 12 in transport
- 11 in government
- 10 in architecture
- 10 in law and public safety
- 10 in STEM
- 9 in business management
- 9 in health science
- 9 in manufacturing
- 9 in finance
- 5 in farming
I think that I am going to look at the 15 and the 14s to see if one of those are for me, plus architecture because I know I’m interested in that.
