Grant was found guilty of possessing explosives, which included acetone, hydrogen peroxide, ammonium nitrate, sulphur sublime container, four AA-size batteries and a conducting wire. The materials were suspected to be intended for use in making explosives for launching a terrorist attack.
The heating tape is essentially resistive to heaters, and it carries a conducting wire that gets hot when electricity flows through it.
This charge [DELTA]Q the Authors call "an imbalance of charge" [1] because they say it is confined to a leading volume element of length [increment of x] in the top conducting wire, and induces equal but opposite polarity charge on the bottom conducting wire.
The operation of the cable is identical to that of the independent components, a conducting wire and supercapacitor.
That is the aim of the Emerging Gabon programme that will guide our development."

C[pounds sterling]In one such example, called (TSF)Cl(HFTIEB), a selenium-based conducting wire is surrounded by a relatively thick layer of molecules that incorporate iodine and fluorine atoms.
From the simplest form of experiments on induction by the motion of a conducting wire through a magnetic field, he was able to derive immediately the right direction for the quantitative investigation, and the clear picture of the magnetic force-lines revealed soon the law that induction phenomena are determined completely by the intersection of the force lines with the conductor.
The simulation shows greater variation in amplitude because the finite ground plane for simulation was constructed with a perfectly conducting wire mesh, so it is expected to create more severe constructive and destructive interference patterns than the real, lossy finite ground plane.
