Common types of order, such as ferro- and anti-ferromagnetic, are characterized by spin or charge densities modulated on inter-atomic scale, therefore well studied thanks to various scattering experiments.
As the repulsion of the free charges in the jet, exerts the main elongation to the jet [20], the surface and volume charge densities have great influences on the fiber diameters.
Therefore, both the current and charge densities are solutions of a wave equation traveling with a speed of light.
The effects of misalignment are more apparent if the charge densities for the corresponding states are visualized.
In these soils, a reduction in the ionic strength of the soil solution is accompanied by a subsequent reduction in both the positive and negative charge densities (Fig.
This relates mostly to molecular weight and charge densities of cationic chemicals, such as ATC, C-PAM, and starch.
The charge densities of XLPE and PVC were decreased as the relative humidity increased in the opposite direction.
In this communication, we use the DLVO theory to calculate, from AFM-measured colloidal forces, surface charge densities and surface potentials for the bitumen-water interface.
Thus, in response to the increased soil solution [mu] resulting from the application of fertiliser, both the positive and negative charge densities are increased in these profiles.
White water coagulants: Mills have used coagulants or low molecular weight polymers with high charge densities for many years to neutralize contaminant charge, fix dyes, promote high molecular weight retention flocculants, increase drainage, remove color, treat broke, neutralize wood containing stock, and neutralize recycle paper.
It can be seen that particle charge densities of attrited PP are larger than that of intact ones.
