Therefore, for concentric and eccentric isokinetic knee extension, the excess torque (and work) provided by the acceleration due to gravity is added to the output measured by the dynamometer.
Chu, whose lab is based at Stanford, has shown that atom interferometry can achieve the same precision as conventional methods in measuring the acceleration due to gravity on Earth.
where D is diameter of spherical particle, [[rho].sub.s] is density of solid particles, [[rho].sub.1] is density of fluid, [mu] is viscosity of fluid, g* is acceleration due to gravity, [[phi].sub.s] is volume fraction of particles in the region under consideration, [t.sub.c] is elapsed time of curing of thermosetting resin, and b a constant that can be determined experimentally from the cure-kinetic data of polymerizing fluid.
The absolute value of the acceleration due to gravity, denoted as g in Eq.
Users must also enter medium density, wind speed and direction, the object's mass, and the acceleration due to gravity. Initial conditions on the object, such as velocity, height, range, and simulation start time, can also be set, as can net thrust and normal force.
Diagrams showing a graphic relationship between values of acceleration due to gravity and time are presented in Fig 7.
where V and [[rho].sub.i] are the total volume and the average density of the organism, [rho] and g the density of the external fluid and the acceleration due to gravity, and K and s the coefficient of hydrodynamic drag and the sinking velocity.
The new Schubert axial robotic unit is able to lift loads with up to four times the acceleration due to gravity, whereby the maximum stroke is 1.8m, and the bottom-mounted tool can be rotated.
Working with the denominator, we take two times 7,000 (14,000) times 32.16 (acceleration due to gravity at this latitude).
Valve coefficient values are: 0.19 (fully open); 1.15 (1/4 closed); 5.60 (1/2 closed); 24.00 (3/4 closed).(1) Relationship to use: h = [Ku.sup.2]/2g; K is the valve constant, u the linear inlet velocity, g the acceleration due to gravity. Identification of misinformation: First Alternative The linear inlet velocity is 0.6 m/s.
