Because the Debye temperature of graphite is high compared to the temperature range of interest (0 to 300K), the above approximate equation is used in the current calculations to estimate the specific heat of the carbon fiber composite overwrap on the tank.
The average crystallite size estimated by using debye scherrer's formula was identified to be in the scale of 21-42nm and the changes in lattice parameter was found to be in the range of 8.
Moreover, the value of the P parameter of the constant phase element is very close to one, showing that the orientation of the dipoles induced by applying external electric field is not highly correlated and approaches to a Debye behavior.

Para la modelacion electrica del tejido se utilizo el modelo electrico de Debye, el cual considera que el tejido glandular esta conformado por dos ramas en paralelo: una rama que representa la resistencia de la matriz extracelular (R) y, la otra, una rama conformada por la capacitancia de membrana (Cm) en serie con la resistencia de la matriz intracelular -S- (14).
The Debye model is developed to noninteracting identical dipoles [31].
Nanofluidic devices, such as organic or inorganic pores and channels, have primary dimensions comparable to the Debye length, and so they have been wildly used for the successful separation of DNA or biomolecular sensing down to the single-molecule level [6-10].
The Debye model has been widely used to describe the dielectric response arising by the dipolar relaxation [18,19].
