    After giving much thought to the many areas covered by Forensics Sciences, the main criteria to which my choices were narrowed and ultimately the final decision of Ballistics and/or Fingerprint Analysis was based on by the complexity of the job, need for a keen eye, and my wanting to be challenged in a career. I have no doubt that there are other areas that would be just if not more challenging however interest is a another key element in the making such a life changing and difficult decision.

  • Bloodstain Pattern Analysis

    2901 Words  | 12 Pages

    14 December 2014 Blood and Guns The world of Forensic Scientist is an amazing and fascinating place. There are so many aspects that go into forensic science but in this paper we are only covering bloodstain spatter patterns. Bloodstain spatter patterns are not solely used to solve crimes but I do feel it is one of the most important. Bloodstains never lie. A bullet is traveling at its fastest speed when it leaves the barrel of the gun. Bullets traveling after firing is said to be using kinetic

    Early forms of ballistics came in the motions of throwing rocks. After more dignified methods came about, with weapons such as the bow and arrow and the boomerang. Now that time has progressed since then so also has science has also evolved into larger fields helping advance life and the work we do within it. . Ballistics now is used to help improve the usage of bullets, bombs and rockets launching. It is the study of mechanics that deals in the science of launching, flight motions and the behavior

    piece of torn newspaper in a suspect’s pocket, sending him to jail (Triple Murder). In modern times, examining the engravings, striations, and bullets, a trained eye can distinguish the type of firearm used, and sometimes identify the exact one. Ballistics can help recreate a crime scene by analyzing the wound size, damage, and angle of the bullet hole, along with the distribution of ammunition and cartridges. Gunshot residue is another commonly implemented technique testing hands, nearby objects

    Science is frequently viewed as a way to examine the world and its contiguous atmosphere. Coming from the word scientia, which is Latin and means knowledge, science is a methodical readiness that creates and arranges information in the form of testable justifications and expectations about the world that we know. Many ideas fall directly into this category. Because of this, a lot of notions and concepts can be categorized as a science discipline. It is apparent that certain science disciplines

  • Description Of The Reference Voltage Vector

    Referring to Fig. 1(ii), consider in region II, the reference voltage vector is following the arc x1x2 at a particular modulation index m. The position of the reference voltage vector is shown in Table 1. It shows that, depending on modulation index value, the duration of stay within subsector 1 and subsector 2 changes. Similarly, consider in region III, the reference voltage vector is following the arc y1y2 at aparticular modulation index. The position of the reference voltage vector is shown in
