Facial recognition appears in daily life frequently. Without the ability to recognize faces, life would be a confusing turmoil. From their birth, infants obtain rudimentary capabilities to process facial expressions. Infants are capable of mimicking expressions and have the aptitude to note details, such as eye and mouth shape. Many times, a graphic representation of an eyewitness’s memory of a face is used to solve crime, so that upon seeing the graphic representation, people will be able to recognize the criminal. In addition, eyes are crucial in recognizing different faces. Although it is commonly perceived that facial features equally contribute to distinguish people, eyes are mainly foremost. Many studies and researches have been done regarding the magnitude of eyes in discerning between different people. Because of their value in facial recognition, drawing and portraying eyes is crucial, especially in facial composites. A facial composite is a sketch of a face drew mainly from a description provided by an eyewitness. Facial composites are often used by detectives and police. According to a fresh study from a researcher at the University of Barcelona, human brains extract important information for facial recognition principally by the eyes, and secondly from the nose and mouth. More results from the same investigation indicate that images of eyes give the least clustered and noisy result. Also, they convey more reliable information to the brain than when compared to the images of the mouth and nose. This information suggests that the face recognition mechanisms in the brain are specialized to the eyes. Moreover, the most useful information is obtained from the images is their size is around 30 by 30 pixels. Another study revealed that when viewing a human face, people often look toward the eyes. Maintaining good eye contact carries a significant social value and allows for the extraction of information. When identifying faces, people also look towards the eyes, but it is still uncertain whether this behavior is solely a byproduct of the socially important eye movement behavior or whether it has functional importance in basic perceptual tasks. Gaze behavior while determining a person’s identity, emotional state, or gender can be explained as an adaptive brain strategy to learn eye movement plans that optimize performance in basic perceptual tasks. Therefore, when creating a quick sketch to portray humans solely relying on the memory of an eyewitness, it is crucial to correctly display the eyes of the target. If the rendering of the human eyes is incorrect, identifying people off of the sketch becomes incredibly difficult. A forensic sketch artist interviews victims and witnesses of crime in order to gather information about the appearance of the suspect. The most crucial component of an accurate facial composite is the value of an eye witness’s memory. Recounting a person’s face that may have inflicted harm on somebody may be an erroneous process. The memory of a
human can play tricks on a person, amplifying certain details and erasing others. For this reason, sketch artists must conduct interviews very carefully and with sensitivity to extract as many

How quickly or how often the molecules and atoms move and collide determine the temperature also determining the state of matter and the kinetic energy. The faster they are moving the higher the object’s temperature, the higher the kinetic energy. Kinetic energy is simply the fact that a moving object can do work on anything it comes in contact with.
The formula to find the average kinetic energy at a given temperature is
There are three phases of matter known as solids, liquids, and…
does an increase in temperature affect kinetic energy and enzyme activity?
1. An increase in temperature will lead to more energetic collisions.
When molecules collide, kinetic energy is converted into chemical potential energy. If the chemical potential energy of the molecule is great enough, the activation energy will be achieved and a change in chemical sate will occur. As temperature is increased, it is possible for more molecules per unit time to reach activation energy. This will allow the…
Heat and Energy
February 7, 2013
The purpose of this paper is to discuss how the study of heat relates to the kinetic energy theory of matter. I will discuss what heat and temperature are, the relationship between them and their differences. I will provide examples of the various properties of a substance that will determine its heat capacity and various sources of heat.
In the 1840s scientists understood that heat was not just a substance but a form of energy that…

I am investigating factors that affect the temperature change when a salt dissolves in water. Understanding energy changes when salt dissolves in water is important because its used in several different industries for example sports packs are used for the damage caused by sprains, twists or bruises the sports packs can…
Average energy of a molecule
Toward the end of the 19th century great insight was gained into the meaning of
thermodynamics by application of statistical methods. A leading ﬁgure in this work was
Ludwig Boltzmann. We quote here without proof one his most important ﬁndings:
In a system at equilibrium at temperature T, the probability that a particular
particle will have energy E is proportional to e −E/kT .
In this, k is Boltzmann’s constant, and T is the Kelvin temperature.

Recall Temperature (Fall term, lecture 11-1) :
a measure of the hotness or coldness of a material
a measure of the average internal kinetic energy of the
molecules of a material (average heat energy per molecule)
temperature is a macroscopic property describing a system
of interacting particles (not derived from Newton’s laws)

to learn about kinetic and potential energy.
