1. Straight line method: 60,000
Initial cost: 300,000 (300,000-0)/5=60,000 1st year
Residual value: 0
Expected useful life: 5years

Double declining balance: 120,000
Initial cost: 300,000 (300,000x40%) = 120,000 Depreciation for first year
Expected life: 5 years (300,000-120,000) = 180,000 Book value for first year
Straight line percentage: (100%/5) = 20%
Double decline balance rate: (20%x2) =40%

2. Straight line depreciation method charges an evenly cost throughout the useful life of a fixed asset. This depreciation method it appropriate where economic benefits from an asset are expected to be realized evenly over its lifetime. It’s a more convenient method to use when there’s no reliable estimate can be derived over an assets life. Double declining balance depreciation method is an accelerated depreciation method that counts twice as much of the asset’s book value each year as an expense compared to straight-line depreciation. The double declining balance method of depreciation is also known as the 200% declining balance method of depreciation. 3. In my humble opinion I believe that it would be better for Brett Saunders to use the straight line method of depreciation. The reason I feel so strongly about this decision is because one it is the most commonly used method amongst business. It also has a less residual cost and it is a constant depreciation expense. And I believe it to be less of a hassle. If he used the other method he has a higher depreciation amount in the first year of the asset's use, followed by declining amounts. The only time the double declining depreciation method is better is when an assets revenues are greater in the early years of its useful…...

Five Senses Essay

...Jonathan Crabtrey 10/30/2011 The five senses In this essay I will use the five senses in describing a trip to the movies the five senses being sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste. Senses we all use every day and that most of us would find difficult to live without. As im sitting at my house in my chair the leather smooth and black and smelling like pledge from my frequent cleaning seeing as I can’t stand to see it dirty a friend comes over and asks me if I would like to go with him to the movies . I say sure thing and so I get up hearing the leather creak as my weight shifts in the chair and open the door locking it as I walk out while closing the door I notice it’s a little slippery with an oil like sheen on the knob up on further investigation i realize it is indeed burnt motor oil slightly perplexed oh how such a substance would have got on my door knob I make a comment “ where the hell did that come from” my friend curiously asks “where did what come from” I said “ the motor oil on my door knob” so he says “oh I checked the oil in my truck I must have got some on the door when I opened it” so with the mystery solved I get into his truck with can under my feet and say “onward to the movies” and onward we went. We arrive at the movies and instantly smell the aroma of buttery popcorn instantly my tummy growls. Walking through the doors I see lights and arcade sounds coming from the arcade games in the corner we had about 15 minutes before the movie started so I......

...THE SENSES Hilgard morgan and Sartain explain that there are more than eight senses that we use to explore and learn about the world.Each of these senses has a specific sense organ within which are receptor cells or receiving mechanisms that are sensitive to certain stimuli in the environment. The Eye Is the organ of vision, is sometimes compared to a camera lens because it works roughly the same way as the latter which focuses images of objects at various distances o the film as it moves toward or away from the place of the film. The lens of the eye focuses light images on a sensitive surface.This surface in the eye is the retina,which is composed of rods and cones. Rods which are cylindrical and number about 100 million,do not distinguish colors but are more sensitive to light than are the cones. Cones which are conical in shape and more than six million in number,allow us to see the different wave lengths of light as different hues or colors. Hilgard presents the process of seeing,light enters the eye through the cornea,a tough transparent membrane.The amount of light entering the eye is regulated by the diameter of the pupil,a small hole in front of the eye formed by the iris.The iris consists of a ring of muscles that can contract or expand,thereby controlling pupil size. The Ear Is the sense organ of hearing which is sensitive to sound waves,the mechanical vibrations in the air. There are three parts of the ear:The outer......

...Can you really trust your senses and the interpretation of sensory data to give you an accurate view of the world? Describe and discuss the accuracy and the weaknesses of the human senses as they pertain to think in general and to your own thinking in particular. What perception means and how is relate to our senses? According to Joe Stratton (1999) on his book Critical Thinking for college students stated that “perception is the process of selection, organization, and interpretation of the sense-data into mental representation that can be use by the brain and the nerve system to provide content for thought” (p. 17). We can understand as Perception the process by which we receive and interpret information coming from the environment or ourselves. This information is received through the five senses: Sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell. Sensory perception is not sufficient to identify the outside world, it is necessary also the intervention of other processes such as attention, memory, and imagination. In other words, perception is how we understand and interpret the world. We perceive the world in certain ways depending on our beliefs is like a filter between us and the reality, the memories and experiences that we have stored in our subconscious mind and our capacity of imagination is responsible for how we can perceive the reality. The perception varies from person to person; different people perceive different things in the same situation. “This sensing-thinking......

Skin Sensation

...Cutaneous or Skin Sensation (Sense of touch) 1. Skin. Outer layer of human body. 2. Stimuli. Various for pressure, pain, and temperature. * The organ involved in the sense of touch is the skin. The skin is composed of 3 several layers : • Epidermis • Dermis • Subcutaneous 1. Epidermis(Outermost)- is composed of the outermost layer of the skin. It’s provides a waterproof barrier and creates our skin tone. Layers The epidermis is composed of 4 or 5 layers depending on the region of skin being considered.Those layers in descending order are: * Stratum basale * Stratum Spinosum * Stratum Granulosum * Stratum Licidum * Stratum Corneum Stratum basale-has cells that are shaped like columns. In this layers the cells divide and push already formed cells into higher layers. As the cells move into the higher layers. They flatten and eventually die. The top layer of the epidermis, the Stratum Corneum, is made of dead,flat skin cells that shed about every 2 weeks. 2. Dermis- is a layer of skin between the epidermis and subcutaneous tissues. Its contains tough connective tissue, hair follicles and sweat glands. Components of the Dermis * The dermis is composed of three major types of cells: fibroblasts, macrophages, and adipocytes. Apart from these cells, the dermis is also composed of matrix components such as collagen (which provides strength),......

Sensation and Perception

...Introduction Psychologists studying perceptual development tend to make a distinction between sensation - "the functioning of our sensory system", and perception - "the interpretation of those sensations" (Foley & Matlin, 2010, p. 2). Perceptual development provides the foundation for interpreting the events of the world around us. Stimuli from the environment that evoke sensory experiences of hearing, seeing, and touching promote brain growth and development. Our sensory systems do indeed change over time, just like the rest of our body. At birth our senses are not completely developed giving us an incomplete view of the world. As we age, our senses will decline leaving us with less of a connection with the world. The path and nature of the development of our senses are important for several reasons. Understanding development helps the medical field intervene in problems to help people of all ages have more normal sensory systems. Understanding development also yields important insight into the basic operations of our sensory systems. Seeing how they change gives researchers peaks into the nature of their general operation. In perceptual development, many focus area does exist, but for the purpose of this paper, emphasis will be placed on discussing the significance of nature vs. nurture to perceptual development in infants, as well as discuss other sensation and perception concepts like visual abilities – acuity and eye movements. Nature vs. Nurture Nature and Nurture in...

Sense Perception

...Approach to knowing: We have 5 senses which are sight, smell, sound, taste and touch. They are very important in our lives because we would use one of them every moment of every day. They also work together to let our brains know what are going on around us, in other words, they are protector by warning us of any danger. However, any quick change to any of the five senses can cause the feeling of dizziness or unsteadiness. You might have experienced this while riding in a car or turning quickly. Sight: Eyes are the organ of vision. The function of our eyes are the same as cameras, as we can see images from the world and send information to our brain. Then, the brain processes the information, therefore we can see movement, color, depth and shape. Sound: Ears are the organs of hearing. The function of our ears is collecting sounds, and hearing helps us to learn and communicate to others. We can hear a huge range of sounds, from a deep bass to a high-pitched whistle and those sounds will change into electrical signals to the brain to process. Therefore, the brain uses the sounds from left and right ear to determine distance and direction of sounds. Taste: Tongue is the organ of tasting. The function of our tongues tastes four different flavors, which are salty, sweet,......

...sensory system consists of the five main senses: sight, hearing, smell, touch and taste. Each individual sense posses their own advantages and disadvantages, but all are crucial to a person’s survival. However, many individuals still take these natural gifts for granted. This is where the same question continues to surface; “if you had to give up one of your senses, which one would you select?” In other words, which sense could a person do best without? I think about this every single time I spend time with my little cousin Jolie who is deaf. I contemplate to myself how it is that she copes and manages? When will she realize she is different? Is it when she sits in school surrounded by her classmates who are able to sing the little hymns to learn their alphabet? Or is it when she has to place a massive hearing aid in her ear every morning before class? The sad truth is she was never given a choice in the matter of her hearing. She will always be considered as one of the “unlucky” ones! If I had the choice I would not allow her to maneuver this uphill battle alone. Choosing which of the five senses to give up would be a fairly easy choice for me. I derive at my perspective rather from what I would keep for my sacrifice as opposed to what I would give up. Undoubtedly I would give up my sense of hearing. For me personally, giving up my hearing would be the most logical decision. In addition, rumor has it that when you lose one sense the other senses become......

Aquinas Sensation

...specific if the falsity exist in the sense. The view that Aquinas takes is a different view than the one that sees falsity as in interpretation of our sense data rather in the sense data themselves. Aquinas see falsity exist in the sense only to the extent that truth exists in them too. He says that falsity should be looked for in the senses only to the extent that the truth exists in them, so that we can only say that falsity exists in the senses when they apprehend things otherwise than they actually are. 1 The three ways that Aquinas identifies the likeness of a thing exist in the sense are; primarily and its own nature, secondly and its own nature, and accidentally. The argument that Aquinas arise is that senses can operate in many more ways than simply the apprehension of primary sensation. He seems to be arguing that senses are capable of preprocessing primitive sense data before presented to the intellect. Falsity can exist in the sense only when the sense organ itself is not working properly as he stated in the article: “Hence, for instance, it happens that on account of an unhealthy tongue sweet seems bitter to a sick person” In this case the sense organ itself is not receiving the sensible form correctly. Also, it can occur when the sense makes mistakes in the preprocessing time. As he previously indicated in the article: “…it follows that it (sense) sometimes report erroneously of that object, and thus we are deceived by sense about the object…” An......

...EXPERIMENTATION ON SIMPLE REACTION TIME (SENSES: REACTION TIME) Date conducted July 04, 2015 Introduction How do we know the reaction time of its senses? Which of the senses is more sensitive and very fast in receiving information? How do we read laboratory primers and organized data into summaries and graphs? We will find out from this experiment the sources of reaction time. We shall identify also the early programs of research on RT. We will compare which of the sense is slow or fast in receiving information. OBJECTIVES: -This experiment aims to acquaint us in reading laboratory primers and organized data into summaries and graphs. -This experiment aims to identify which of the senses is more sensitive and very fast in receiving information and which of the senses that is very slow in receiving information. -It sought to know the reaction time of its senses as well as the average reaction time. Background and Related Literature: According to studies such as those done by Brebner and Welford published in 1980, mean auditory reaction times are .14-.16 seconds and mean visual reactions times are .18-.2 seconds. The time it takes for the signal to reach the brain was also found by these studies; it takes auditory stimulus .08-.1 seconds to reach the brain while visual stimulus take .2-.4 seconds to reach the brain. Based on this information as well as that from the experiment, a new hypothesis and prediction were being proposed such that if it does takes......

Sensation vs. Perception

...Sensation and Perception The human brain is much more complex than any other organism because humans have the ability to perceive information. Any organism can experience sensation, or a response caused by the presence of a stimulus (Baar and Warden, 1928). Because humans have such complex cerebral cortexes, they can interpret the sensations caused by stimuli and decide what to do with the information. This interpretation is called perception and it gives meaning to sensations (Harrison and Geller, 2014). The difference between sensation and perception is that a sensation is just the experience of a stimulus, while perception is the interpretation of the sensation. A sensation can happen at any time and can be caused by all types of stimuli. Sensations can be cause by all the five senses that are sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste. Sensations are also a “native” (Baar and Warden, 1928) response, meaning they just occur and need no prior learning for translation. Perception on the other hand can only happen when there is a sensation. Without a sensation, there would be nothing to perceive, therefore there would be no information to be put together. Perception must be “acquired by experience” (Baar and Warden, 1928), meaning they require prior learning in order to interpret and understand sensations. For example, when an adult witnesses someone being hit, they will think something is wrong, because, as a child, they were taught that hitting was bad. ......

Chemical Senses

...Chemical Senses Jenny McDowell PSY/345 04/18/2016 Adam Castleberry Chemical Senses Chemical senses are the connection of smell and taste. Different fluids and water are chemical substances that dissolve in the mouth that is a stimuli of taste. “There are four basic descriptions that stimuli taste, they are the following, bitter, salty, sour and sweet. These sensations can be combined to stimulate different types of stimulation of taste,” (Bartoshuk, L. M., & Beauchamp, G. K.) (1994), Chemical senses. Examples would consist of salt and vinegar potato chips, sweet and sour chicken, and other different combinations. Taste buds that are located on the tongue are called receptors, there are thousands of tiny bumps (taste buds) all around the tongue that are called papillae. Within each papilla there are many taste buds and information is conveyed by nerves, then to the thalamus and finally to the area of the cortex. “For smell, in humans the olfactory receptors work together to detect different types of smells, there are over 400 types of different sensors in the receptors of the olfactory,” (Monell chemical senses center; extensive variability in olfactory receptors influences human odor perception. (2013). The stimuli chemical substances are in the atmosphere, which as in a result the olfactory receptors are simulated by these substances. The receptors are located in the upper portions of the nasal passages. The olfactory nerve is formed when......
