Fracking Diagram. What Is Fracking? Learn how fracking utilizes water to extract oil and natural gas from shale formations, why fracking is an economic and energy security solution. Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) is a well stimulation technique in which rock is fractured by a pressurized liquid, usually a water mixture. Fracking is the process of drilling down into the earth before a high-pressure water mixture is directed at the deposit.
Fracturing fluid is a mix of water sand and chemicals is pumped into the well. The pressures causes the rock surrounding the pipe to crack. The proppants hold open these cracks to allow the trapped gas to escape. Gas / oil flows up the well to be extracted. Some potential risks include groundwater contamination and air quality degradation but with deposits usually located at great depths, these are usually do not present a big problem.

Hyperloop diagram – The hyperloop diagram displays the fundamentals of this new transportation technology. Is Hyper loop the transportation of the future over long distances? This may well be the case given its potential. Elon Musk played a key role in invention of the hyperloop concept.
Hyperloop’s key components are as follows the capsule, compressor, vacuum tube, propulsion, air bearings and the actual payload. Compressor is a giant fan on the front of the capsule and is what makes the hyperloop possible, transferring huge volumes of air away from the nose. Without it, the pod would be pushing all the air in front of it, which would make it a lot more expensive including the need to develop a bigger tube.
Speaking of the vacuum tube, capsule will travel in a near vacuum to reduce drag significantly. Valves and pumps will keep internal air pressure at about 100 Pascals or one-thousandth the air pressure at sea level. Nitrogen could be injected into the tube as well.
Propulsion: the Hyperloop capsule speeds along a magnetic river propelled by linear induction motors spaced along the tube or installed as a continuous strip. Linear induction, used on maglev trains has no moving parts and low maintenance costs.
Air bearings – the capsule will use cushion of air pumped from the bottom of lunch-tray-size sleds. Landing gear may need to be deployed as it comes to a stop.
Hyperloop payload will be a capsule of about 70 feet long, big enough to hold standard 40 foot container. The capsule could accelerate from 0 to 750 mph in less than 60 seconds.
Essay Structure – The below essay structure diagram explains how a typical essay should be structured including introduction, 3 key body paragraphs or arguments and conclusion. The creation of a good essay requires a lot of knowledge from the author but having a good structure helps to make the message even more clear.
Great arguments and knowledge structured poorly may result in audience losing focus and interest while even a fairly weak arguments structured well can result in getting reader’s attention.
The first paragraph, the introduction, starts with a general idea and gradually gets more and more specific. It ends with the thesis, one sentence that tells the reader what is the main point and argument of the essay. The triangle illustrates the general to specific / focused structure, gradually getting narrower and coming to the main point.
The body of the essay proves or elaborates the thesis further. Body usually has three paragraphs. The longer papers just add more body paragraphs but the overall structure works regardless of the length of the paper. Important to note that having too many arguments may result in reader thinking you are trying to ‘oversell’ your point and could result in loss of focus.
On the essay structure diagram below, the yellow portion in the red paragraph shows the location of the transitional phrase and so does the red segment in the orange segment.
It is best to place a good argument first to capture users attention. The weakest argument usually goes in the middle. Your strongest argument should go last so you finish on a strong note and get your reader to agree with you.
In the conclusion, the structure is reversed with the specific thesis coming first and the ever more general sentences coming last. It is important that the last sentence creates a good ending for the paper. Sometime this could be inspirational or a generic truism. Do not introduce new ideas in the conclusion.
Following this structure will help you write excellent essays. This is very important to get your ideas across. Communicating at one’s best ensures people understand each other. Communication is key to the betterment of our world. 🙂 Note how this last paragraph starts off with specific point and concludes in a generic inspirational phrase.
