The molecular weight dependence of the z-average

radius of gyration obtained by light scattering was determined by plotting [R.sub.g, z] as a function of [M.sub.z] in order to minimize polydispersity effects [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 4 OMITTED].

The

radius of gyration ([R.sub.g]) was estimated based on the Guinier analysis; the result showed that the value of [R.sub.g] is in the range of 14.7-17.6 nm.

The

radius of gyration derived thusly serves as a lower limit, since in actuality the aggregates are known to be less compact, with the typical fractal dimension of soot being ~1.8 [40].

They concluded that, to induce non-Einstein-like viscosity behavior, the polymer must be entangled, and the separation distance between nanoparticles should be comparable to the polymer

radius of gyration. They also found that fullerenes resulted in a similar viscosity reduction at a mass fraction of 0.02 [13].

Where [R.sub.g] is the

radius of gyration (with [R.sub.g.sup.2] = [na.sup.2]/6 for v = 0.5).

Figure 12 shows the center-mass points for each period as well as each calculated

radius of gyration. We find the three center-mass values are within a reasonable range of each other, given the global scale.

Isolated countries such as New Zealand or Australia had an average

radius of gyration of over 700 km.

Setting l = N[[lambda].sub.C] and minimizing equation (25) relative to R, we obtain for the

radius of gyration [R.sub.g] the relation

Figure 6(b) presents the relationship between the average size of the islands (the average

radius of gyration: [R.sub.avg]) and the average number of particles ([N.sub.avg]).

Radius of Gyration. We performed Rg in order to understand the levels of compaction of the native and mutant class PMP22.

According to the light scattering theory [25-27], weight average molecular weight (Mw) and root mean square

radius of gyration (<[R.sub.g]>) of polymers were measured by static light scattering.
