radius of gyration

n
(General Physics) a length that represents the distance in a rotating system between the point about which it is rotating and the point to or from which a transfer of energy has the maximum effect. Symbol: k or r. In a system with a moment of inertia I and mass m, k2 = I/m

Note that barycenters and radii of gyration are not directly comparable between variables, since both depend on the number of classes: to facilitate [TABULAR DATA FOR TABLE 2 OMITTED] comparisons, the number of classes and the ratio of radius of gyration to uniform radius of gyration (Rg-to-uRg ratio, where uRg is the radius of gyration for a hypothetical species present with equal frequency in all classes of the factor) are also listed.
Moreover, a no-break condition is observed at the longest diffusion distance, which is approximately the radius of gyration of this material.

The software is designed for integrated multiple detection with its optional multi-detector polymer characterization module for integrated light scattering and/or viscosity detection, for the determination of true molecular weights, intrinsic viscosity, radius of gyration and branching information.
These properties include mass, volume, moments of inertia, products of inertia, and radius of gyration.
