    Hygiene and health in early Melbourne
    Prior to theestablishmentthe establishment of sewerage
    wastes by throwing them out the door. The waste or sewage from bathrooms,kitchens and laundries were emptied into open drains that flowed into streetchannels and out into the Bay via the rivers and creeks. (Can you see the streetdrainage channels in the picture of Elizabeth St dated 1880?).All of these wastes mixed together made for a smelly place and Melbourne wasnicknamed “Marvellous Smelboom”
    In 1889 alone, nearly a thousand people died of typhoid. Sewage still ran in open drains and nightsoil mencollected pans from back alleys and houses around Melbourne. Following a Royal Commission into Melbourne’s sanitary arrangements in 1888, the Melbourne metropolitan Board of Works was formed in the early 1890s.By 1897, the first sewerage connections werebeing made.The first building to be connected was the All England Eleven Hotel in Port Melbourne.
    To organise a tour of the sewers of Brighton click here
    Steine Gardens.
    During the tour you will see part of the sewer system, which disposes of approximately 100 million litres (22 million gallons) of wastewater each day from the Brighton area.

    The Fitzroy Gardens are 26 hectares (64 acres) located on the southeastern edge of the Melbourne Central Business District in East Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The gardens are bounded by Clarendon Street, Albert Street, Lansdowne Street, and Wellington Parade with the Treasury Gardens across Lansdowne street to the west. The gardens are one of the major Victorian era landscaped gardens in Australia.

    Flowers are planted to form geometric designs in the inner circle. Depending on the design, approximately 4000 plants are needed for the inner design and 3000–3500 for the outer section. The designs are frequently based on polygons but these shapes are based on octagons.

    The Shot Tower Melbourne Central
    This important landmark of Melbourne was preserved and enclosed in a conic glass atrium.
    The shot tower was built in 1889, and was a factory for making lead shot. The factory operated until 1961*.
    Ammunition, both military and sporting, is made from lead. The spherical shot for shotgun use is made by pouring molten lead and arsenic through sieves at the top of a tower. The molten alloy, while dropping forms a true sphere before solidifying near the bottom of its fall. The shot is collected in water.
    1. Calculation of the speed of the shot at the bottom of the tower.
    In order to simplify practical problems, assumptions often need to be made. This problem is no exception.
    Estimate the height of the shot tower metres. Check the accuracy of this on google .
    2. What is the name of the force that causes the lead shot to fall?
    3. The speed of the shot after travelling a distance d metres from rest, can be calculated using the following formula: v2 2ad where a = 10m/s2, acceleration due to gravity and d is the height of the shot tower, in metres, calculated from the architect’s drawing. Find v, the speed of the shot.
    4. The value calculated above, is the theoretical speed for the lead shot. In reality, the lead shot would encounter other forces that would influence its speed as it falls through the air column. What are the other forces?
    5. Draw a simple diagram to illustrate these forces acting on the shot. Represent the shot as a sphere What effect would these forces have on the speed of the falling object?
    6. Convert the speed to km/hr, using the following conversion factors. Conversion factors: 1000 metres in one kilometre; 60 seconds in one minute; 60 minutes in one hour.
    7. Compare the above speed to the speed of
    • a car travelling on a freeway
    • walking dog
    • running to the 7-11 shop for milk
    • a tram
    Rank these speeds in ascending order.
    8. What is the geometric name that best describes the transparent structure surrounding the Tower?
