CATEGORIES

  • Circumference
    Category: Mathematics

    The distance around a circle.

  • Central Processing Unit (CPU)
    Category: Computer Science

    Central Processing Unit, the CPU makes all decisions and processes all data that it receives.

  • Cache Memory
    Category: Computer Science

    The cache is a smaller, faster memory which stores copies of the data from the most frequently used main memory locations.

  • Cartilage
    Category: Medicine

    The stuff that can help reduced pain when injured. Cartilage can reduce pain when hit because it is so thick, that it takes a good amount of time for the pain or shock to get through it. Cartilage is found in the front of your nose, in between your joints, and even in your ears!

  • Constant
    Category: Mathematics

    An expression with no variable.

  • Cell Membrane
    Category: Algebra

    A protective layer that covers a cell surface and acts as a barrier between the inside of a cell and the cell\'s environment.

  • Cell
    Category: Algebra

    The basic unit of all living things.

  • Complex Fraction
    Category: Mathematics

    A fraction in which the numerator or the denominator or both contain a fraction.

  • Current
    Category: Electrical Engineering

    Current is the build up that happens when voltage is divided by resistance. Current is the friction caused by a moving molecule. As voltage tries to push against something trying to hold it back, energy is created called current.

  • Cube Root
    Category: Mathematics

    A number that when cubed is equal to the given number.

  • Coefficient
    Category: Mathematics

    A number in an algebraic problem.

  • Class
    Category: Computer Science

    The combination of data and functions joined together to form a type.

  • COmmon Business-Oriented COBOL
    Category: Computer Science

    A business programming language(COmmon Business-Oriented Language) developed by Grace Hopper

  • Compiler
    Category: Computer Science

    A program that translates source code into object code that can be executed.

  • Console Out (Output)
    Category: Chemical Engineering

    Cout outputs text to the users screen.

  • Console In (Input)
    Category: Chemical Engineering

    Cin allows user to input text into the program.

  • Compute
    Category: Mathematics

    To figure out.

  • Carbonic Anhydrase
    Category: Biology

    Carbonic Anhydrase is an enzyme which speeds the process of changing carbonic acid into carbon dioxide + water. It can also convert carbon dioxide + water back into carbonic acid.

  • Chloroplast
    Category: Plant Biology

    The spot where photosynthesis of plants take place. The chloroplast contains chlorophyll, can partially control itself, and has two cell membranes.

  • Chromatin
    Category: Plant Biology

    Chromatin are simply chromosomes in their basic, active mode. These are very small molecules which package DNA into a smaller position to fit DNA into the cell. Chromatin strengthens the DNA and promotes mitosis, and is also needed to prevent DNA damage. Chromatin helps control how genes are turned on and off, and aids in the copying of DNA.

  • Cerebral Cortex
    Category: Biology

    The cerebral cortex, (which is also known as gray matter) deals with the activity of touch, smell, sound, taste, sight, and memory, and how they are processed. The cerebral cortex is the top layer of brain tissue, and contains folded bulges and imprints called gyri and sulci which are the bumps and curves on your brain.

  • Convolution
    Category: Electrical Engineering

    A fancy word for \"multiply then integrate\". Also, you must add a (-tau) to the SECOND function next to t for time. Ex. (t-tau)

  • Charge Density
    Category: Electrical Engineering

    The thickness of a charge.

  • Constant
    Category: Physics

    A constant is a known number. Sometimes a constant can be replaced with a letter, but that letter is still just a number that you already know.
