It takes time and energy for magnetic molecular rearrangement, for magnetism to get started, so there's a lag in the saturation curve.
The curve search starts at the saturation curve, then moves downward from the saturation curve to zero.
In other words, saturation curve of the generator is lifted up which means that generator can work at higher operating point.
The oxygen buffering and saturation curve of this product makes the QC behave very blood-like which makes the QC reliable, preventing false-negatives caused by pre-analytical variation like handling.
Oloneo PhotoEngine also comes with a complete raw and image processing module including a customizable Color Curve Equalizer[TM] with hue/saturation, hue/luminance and hue/hue curves, a brightness curve, a unique color saturation curve, a color toning tool, an advanced white balance control and more.
Case 1 illustrates an "unfavorable process line" due to portions of the process line that connects the mixed-air condition to the coil ADP being above the saturation curve, which leads to a supersaturated moisture condition where ice crystals will form in the air.
This small and lightweight amplifier utilizes GaAsFET technology with a corresponding abrupt saturation curve.
Species-area plots are illuminating but not superior to local-regional plots, which depict the actual saturation curve, and thereby visually aid intuition.
These relationships are graphically summarized in Figure 1, which shows the saturation curve for water in a two-dimensional graph defined by temperature (T) and entropy (s) axes (s is the standard symbol for entropy in thermodynamics).
The measured strips are then used to chart a saturation curve that plots the arc height versus the exposure time.
With the constant vapor pressure assumption, we can trace a horizontal line from the 65[degrees]F (18[degrees]C) dew-point state-point on the saturation curve to where it crosses the vertical 75[degrees]F (24[degrees]C) dry-bulb temperature line.
