What is the chord structure of the 12 Bar blues in Roman numerals?

12 bar blues is what's known as a 1-4-5, or in roman numerals, I-IV-V If you're playing blues in E, the E is the 1, or I... counting up from E, you have F as the 2, or II, G is the 3, or III, and A is the 4, or IV. B would be the 5, or in roman numerals V. Notice we are not counting sharps/flats, but full steps, therefore a 12 bar blues in the key of E means the chords are going to be E-A- and B. 12 bar blues in A would mean the chords are A-D- and E (A is the one, B would be the 2, C is the 3, and D is the 4, making E the 5. A-D-E 1-4-5.... or I-IV-V 12 bars...with 4 beats per measure, in the key of E, basically means this..... E-2-3-4.....E-2-3-4...E-2-3-4...E-2-3-4 A-2-3-4.....1-2-3-4 E-2-3-4.....1-2-3-4 B-2-3-4 A-2-3-4 E-2-3-4...1-2-3-4 Hope that made sense?

What is the correct way to write 4 in Roman numerals?

There is one reason why IIII is preferable to IV, and it may have caused the change. On the other side of the clock dial the VIII is the heaviest number, consisting of four heavy strokes and one light one, as it is usually made. It would destroy the symmetry to have the IV with only two heavy strokes on the other side. Thus IIII with four heavy strokes is much to be preferred. The change may therefore have been made for reasons of symmetry. John313181, IX is only 3 positions away from XII, whereas IV (or IIII if you like) is 4 positions away. VIII is the same distance from XII as IV (IIII). However, for reasons other than clockmaking, I agree IV is preferable and more logical than IIII.

How do you figure out Roman Numerals for Seventh Chords?

Well in traditional analysis you just need to add a 7 after the numeral. So let's just look at C major, you've got C Dm Em F G Am and Bdim. C is the first chord, so that's the I chord. D is the second chord, so it's the ii chord. Lower case indicates minor. Diminished chords are indicated by a little degree sign. In a major key, a 7th chord built off scale degree 7 is a half diminished 7th. It is indicated by a degree sign with a line through it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-diminished_seventh_chord If you just write a normal degree sign, it's a diminished 7th chord. There IS a difference.

The 2006 Winter Games in Torino, Italy will be the XX Winter Games; they began in 1924 and were in the same year as the Summer games until 1992. Beijing will be the XXIX Olympiad in 2008 and the 2012 Games won by London will be the XXX Olympiad. When counting Olympic Games the ones cancelled during war in 1916, 1940, and 1944 are included.

Why do the roman numerals mean in the name of chemical formulae?

yes they do mean the charge e.g. Iron (II) Oxide = Fe 2+ O 2- Iron (III) Phosphate = Fe 3+ PO4 3- Copper (II) Sulphate = Cu 2+ SO4 2- Technically they are only linked to transition metals, because transition metals can have different valencies/charges. Metals only lose electrons so they are always with a positive/+ charge. some elements can have a 6+ charge but i havent seen one before, but some transition metals might be able to. e.g. your example Tungsten (VI) flouride is WFe6 is W 6+

Well, that depends on the woman, the numerals, and their overall artistic design, really. Also, placement would be key. The ribcage area actually sounds lovely, if you're looking for a larger piece. No doubt it will be painful, but tattoos will be uncomfortable to get, no matter where you get them...you might as well get one where you really want it -- and, wouldn't mind seeing there permanently. Some of the most beautiful tattoos I've ever seen have been along someone's side, across their ribs. If you'd like a smaller piece, I like the inside of the wrist and the lowest base of the neck, right above the center of the shoulder blades.

How do I use roman numerals when naming transition metals in compounds?

These roman numerals are used to specify the oxidation state, or charge of that atom. This means that Fe(II) is the same as Fe2+, which means that the Fe atom has lost 2 electrons, leaving it with a positive charge of 2+. This is important to know in order to balance compounds and do reactions. For example, if someone says "what is the formula for iron (II) nitrate?", I can see that the charge on iron, Fe, is 2+ because of the II in parenthesis. I know that nitrate, NO3- has a charge of -1, so I need 2 nitrates for every iron in order to cancel the charge. Therefor, iron (II) nitrate is Fe(NO3)2. Alternatively, if I see the compound Fe(NO3)2, I can figure out the name by knowing that since N03- has a negative charge, and there are 2 of them, together they have a charge of -2, so I need a charge of +2 to cancel it out. Therefore, iron, Fe, has a charge (oxidation state) of 2+, and so it is written as Iron (II) Nitrate. The same goes if it has a charge/oxidation state of 3, it is written and Iron (III). Hope this helps!
