Abstract
In Chemistry, there are four main gas laws that are discussed to understand how and why gas particles function. The four main gas laws that are present in field of Chemistry are as follows: Charles's Law, Gay-Lussac's Law, Boyle's Law, and Avogadro's Law. Each of these laws has their own distinct way of operating but is always in the world surrounding us. Two laws in particular, Charles's Law and Avogadro's Law, are being focused on for this experiment. The Purpose of this experiment is to prove Charles's Law and Avogadro's Law through a series of experiments and of analyzing of the data. After proving the two Gas Laws and viewing the data, it is important to figure out how the two have a relationship with Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and how it works. Future work includes implementing Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles to maintenance at Elizabeth City State University in order to reduce the carbon footprint (the amount of Carbon dioxide that an individual or organization emits into the atmosphere) of the school.

Abstract
The purpose of this research is to use concepts advanced mathematics to design an effective and possible unbreakable method for generating Personal Code Numbers. For instance, the method may be applied to generateBanner Numbers for students who register at a particular university. The new method has been implemented in MAPLE as the subroutine GenPCN2. The main advantage of using the proposed method is that this technique is less breakable than other codes due to the complexity of the mathematical scheme that is used. |
