Sex, Gender, and Popular Culture Spring 2015 Look through popular magazines, and see if you can find advertisements that objectify women in order to sell a product. Alternately, you may use an advertisement on television (but make sure to provide a link to the ad so I can see it!). Study these images then write a paper about objectification that deals with all or some of the following: • What effect(s), if any, do you think the objectification of women’s bodies has on our culture? • Jean Kilbourne states “turning a human being into a thing is almost always the first step toward justifying violence against that person.” What do you think she means by this? Do you agree with her reasoning? Why or why not? • Some people would argue that depicting a woman’s body as an object is a form of art. What is your opinion of this point of view? Explain your reasoning. • Why do you think that women are objectified more often than men are? • How does sexualization and objectification play out differently across racial lines? • Kilbourne explains that the consequences of being objectified are different – and more serious – for women than for men. Do you agree? How is the world different for women than it is for men? How do objectified images of women interact with those in our culture differently from the way images of men do? Why is it important to look at images in the context of the culture? • What is the difference between sexual objectification and sexual subjectification? (Ros Gill ) • How do ads construct violent white masculinity and how does that vision of masculinity hurt both men and women? Throughout your written analysis, be sure to make clear and specific reference to the images you selected, and please submit these images with your paper. Make sure you engage with and reference to at least 4 of the following authors: Kilbourne, Bordo, Hunter & Soto, Rose, Durham, Gill, Katz, Schuchardt, Ono and Buescher. Guidelines:  Keep your content focused on structural, systemic, institutional factors rather than the individual: BE ANALYTICAL NOT ANECDOTAL.  Avoid using the first person or including personal stories/reactions. You must make sure to actively engage with your readings: these essays need to be informed and framed by the theoretical material you have been reading this semester.  Keep within the 4-6 page limit; use 12-point font, double spacing and 1-inch margins.  Use formal writing conventions (introduction/thesis statement, body, conclusion) and correct grammar. Resources may be cited within the text of your paper, i.e. (Walters, 2013).

MAE 241 – Homework 2 Page 1 of 2 MAE 241 – Spring 2019 – Homework 2 Administered 1/18/2019 – Due 11PM, Sunday 1/27/2019 to Gradescope Problem 1 The average water head (vertical height of water column) maintained in Hoover dam reservoir is about 500 ft. Assume water density of 62.43 lb/ft3. a. Determine the maximum pressure at the bottom of reservoir. b. Find the power generation potential of the water at that pressure if the discharge rate is 500×103 ft3/s. Problem 2 The Vestas V164 is one of the largest wind turbines in the world, with diameter of 164 m. If the theoretical limit on the capacity of a wind turbine is 1/3rd of its power generation potential, determine the capacity of the turbine when it is placed in a location where the average wind speed is 10 m/s. Assume air density as 1.25 kg/m3. Problem 3 An automobile has a mass of 1200 kg. What is its kinetic energy, in kJ, relative to the road when traveling at a velocity of 50 km/h? If the vehicle accelerates to 100 km/h, what is the change in kinetic energy, in kJ? Problem 4 A 5 kg brick is dropped from a height of 12 m onto a spring with a spring constant 8 kN/m. If the spring has a unstretched length of 0.5m, find (a) the shortest length the spring will be compressed before recoil, and (b) the final length of spring once the whole system becomes static. Problem 5 A piping installation is used to transport 20 L/s of water from a reservoir (location 1) to a point of use (location 2) 20 meters above. The absolute pressure of water at the inlet of the installation is 110 kPa; the gauge pressure measured right before the point of use is 552 kPa. Determine the power input required, in kW. Assume that because the piping at locations (1) and (2) have the same diameter the average velocities of water are equal and the density of water is 1000 kg/m3. Problem 6 A system receives 10 MJ in the form of heat in a process and it produced 4 MJ of work. The system velocity changes from 10 m/s to 25 m/s. For a 50 kg mass of the system, determine the change in internal energy of the system. MAE 241 – Homework 2 Page 2 of 2 Problem 7 On a recent energy assessment performed to an industrial facility in Tempe by a team of ASU’s Industrial Assessment Center, the team evaluated a boiler whose rated input was 6 MBTUH (6 million BTU per hour). After measuring the composition of flue gases it was apparent that the boiler was not be operating at its best operating point; this suspicion was validated by determining that the combustion efficiency was equal to 0.65. As corrective measure the boiler received a tune up that increased the combustion efficiency to 0.8. The boiler operates 48 weeks per year continuously while the plant is in production. Taking the cost of energy to be $13 per MBTU, determine: a. The annual energy cost. b. The annual cost savings as a result of tuning up the boiler. c. List the assumptions used in your computations. Problem 8 Balloons are often filled with helium gas because it weighs only about one-seventh of what air weighs under identical conditions. The buoyancy force, which can be expressed as 𝐹𝑏 = 𝜌𝑎𝑖𝑟𝑔𝑉𝑏𝑎𝑙, will push the balloon upward. (a) If the balloon has a diameter of 15 m and carries eight people, 75 kg each, determine the acceleration of the balloon when it is first released. (b) The change in air density with altitude can be approximated up to 10km using a linear function 𝜌𝑎𝑖𝑟 = 1.173 − 8 × 10−5ℎ where ℎ is the altitude in m. At what theoretical altitude the balloon will stop climbing upwards? Assume the density of air is 1.173 kg/m3 at ground level, and neglect the weight of the ropes and the cage. Problem 9 A differential manometer is used to measure pressure difference between two fluid systems. Two parallel pipes carrying freshwater and seawater are connected to each other by a double U-tube differential manometer, as shown in Figure. (a) Determine the pressure difference between the two pipelines if ℎ = 10 cm. (b) If the pressure difference between the pipes is doubled, what will be the difference in heights (ℎ) of mercury? Take the density of seawater at that location to be 1035 kg/m3, and the specific gravity of the oil is 0.72. Assume all fluids are incompressible.
