The parent element of our personalities can be both nurturing (e.g.
Thus, each tetrahedron within the polyhedron/hexahedron (with coordinates (x, y, z)) is mapped to the parent element geometry in the natural coordinate system (with coordinates (r, s, t)) according to the equation below:
Daughters with the same number of protons are isotopes of the parent element; daughters with a different number of protons are actually different elements, with different chemical properties.
samples of the parent element. Using ISOLDE's unique laser ion source that
The context of a data element is determined by its parent element, because a data element specifies one of the characteristics of its parent.
Any modification brought to the parent element will be reflected on the child elements.
An XML document has only one root element that acts as a parent element to any embedded subelements.
The parent element is [^.Q] = (0, 1) X (0, 1) and for some k [member of] N, the reference element is
This allows three things: The ammunition for that sub-unit can be collected together, and two men (maybe one) can pick them up in a single bag to move back to the parent element; allows for ease in cache; and aviator's kit bags can easily be hung on the front rack of a gator or HMMWV, or thrown in the back.
"You just don't see the same growth when the parent element isn't there."
Observing this distinct decay pattern -- as element 110 spawned daughter and granddaughter isotopes 108 to 102 -- permits researchers to confirm the presence of the parent element 110, says Armbruster.
In general, though, oxides are predictable and usually present at about 0.1% of the parent element. So they often can be compensated for by software correction.
