On the other hand, when the surface density of the BPE molecules is reduced to 3 x 10-13 mol/[mm.sup.2], the SERS intensity decreases as the BPE surface density reduces, showing a linear dependence in the double-log plot, that is, a power law of the molecule packing density dependence, with a near unity exponent of about 1.25.
The thickness of the [Cu.sub.13][Sn.sub.4]In layer shows almost linear dependence of the time at beginning.
Thus, instead of the linear Newtonian time for a single object we get the broken linear dependence for the time of the whole system if the number of objects forming this system is continuously changing.
Mechanical behavior of condensates in both case is defined by dislocation processes (linear dependence of Hall-Petch is fulfilled).
A linear dependence term was unexpected, but definitely exists given the [+ or -]1 part in [10.sup.7] data uncertainties.
The measurements of the current-voltage (I-V) characteristics demonstrate linear dependence in the coordinates log V - log I in the range of currents [10.sup.-1] - [10.sup.-8] A (Fig.
Also notice the almost linear dependence of the dispersion effect on electric field in the linear region.
We turn now to testing for linear dependence in the data.
Although the linear dependence of the quantity of electrochemical product on current is the foundation of electrochemistry, the linearity here must be coincidental as we are measuring secondary or tertiary effects of the electrochemical activity (fluid absorption following on crack formation following on sulfur- sulfur bond cleavage) and the important point is the direction of the relationship rather than its magnitude.
Positive linear dependence leads to the conclusion that in both cases, according to the Laffer curve theory, the Laffer point lies to the right of the implicit rates of the selected economies.
