In a vacuum tube, the ratio of the incremental change in plate voltage to a given small change in grid voltage, under the conditions that the plate current and all other electrode voltages are held constant.

'Human body works as an amplification factor and individual concerned keeps shedding it wherever he/she is travelling,' he said.
With the objective to verify the dynamics of the heating, the time coefficient oc and the amplification factor [GAMMA] are determined based on the function T(t)=[GAMMA] log([varies]t)+C.
--the modulation index m--only the ratio (not the absolute values) of both amplitudes [A.sub.0] and [A.sub.1] affect the spectrum, the modulation index role looks a little bit like an amplification factor of the influence of the modulation frequency and phase (Fig.
During the first stage of contact, for 0.1 seconds, it never reaches to the critical heat flux if we reduce the amplification factor below 15 (Amp [less than or equal to] 15): see Figures 8(a) and 8(b).
From the curves shown in Figure 6, the PGA amplification factor of same slope model varies with sensor point and slope altitude, as the altitudes of the A3, A4, and A7 points are different.
Section 3 contains explanation of two quantities which importantly describe the resulting wave characteristics, Amplitude Amplification Factor (AAF) and Maximal Temporal Amplitude (MTA).
Most literatures simplify the vehicle load as moving constant load when analyzing the dynamic behavior of BDPs, and the dynamic effect of vehicle load is considered using an empirical amplification factor.
Previous Neustar research, DNSSEC: How Savvy DDoS Attackers Are Using Our Defenses Against Us, determined that the average DNSSEC amplification factor for a DNSSEC signed zone was nearly 29 times greater than the initial query.
Besides the resonance frequency itself, the amplification factor (Q) and damping are also important factors.
Factor 1 is characterized by strong positive loadings of the variables indicative of HER2 amplification (including HER2 counts, HER2/CEP17 ratios, and percentages of amplified cells by MP and AD) and is therefore interpreted as the amplification factor. Accordingly, factor 2 can be taken as factor of polysomy.
For example, with the original rotor design, it is seen that, with a vertical bearing stiffness of 100,000 lb/in, the optimum damping is about 250 lbsec/in with an amplification factor of two.
When [theta] = 0, the amplification factor is simplified to
