* Row 2: If the intake is on a building sidewall or on the opposite side of a roof top obstacle (hidden), the dilution factor can be decreased by a factor of 2, which is then input into the table.
In source calcium hardness value was 180[mg/l] with dilution factor 8X, in tank it was 180 [mg/l] with dilution factor 8X, in tap 1 it was 170 [mg/l] with dilution factor 7X, in channel 1 it was 190 [mg/l] with dilution factor 9X, in tap 2 it was 160 [mg/l] with dilution factor 8X, in channel 2 it was 190 [mg/l] with dilution factor 8X, in tap 3 it was 190 [mg/l] with dilution factor 8X, in channel 3 it was 160 [mg/l] with dilution factor 8X, in tap 4 it was 190 [mg/l] with dilution factor 8X and in tap 5 it was 180 [mg/l] with dilution factor 8X.
Because there were no empirical data to suggest that the [sup.223]Ra solutions were unstable with respect to dilutions or transfers and because the contained and dispensed gravimetric dilution factors demonstrated such good agreement, no systematic monitoring of the dilution factors by radiometric means was pursued.
The number of colonies in one ml of the sample was calculated taking account of the dilution factors. The data was presented as means and ranges of microorganisms count.
The serum dilution factors (1 : 10; 1 : 20; 1 : 40; 1: 80; and 1: 160) were transformed into a logarithmic scale (1.0, 1.30, 1.6, 1.9, and 2.2) to simple calculations (Figure 1).
It is unlikely to leak out but if it did, the dilution factor would render it innocuous.
The average was taken and the number obtained was multiplied by four and then by the inverse of the dilution factor. This gave the number of colony forming units per gram ofa sample (cfu/g).
As expected, ASNase concentration (dilution factor) was considered significant for enzyme activity in all experiments (P < 0.0001).
For a given geographical location and for weeks of observation, however, the emission flux of radon can be considered to be constant and the air concentration of radon and [sup.222]radon short-lived daughters ([sup.218]Po, [sup.214]Pb, [sup.214]Bi and [sup.214]Po) can be assumed to depend only on the dilution factor [7].
The absence of such correlation could be due to the dilution factor that occurs after river Naguman joins river Shah Alam.
The number of colony-forming units per milliliter was calculated as follows: mean number of colonies per plate x dilution factor x 10.
A 2.75-fold dilution factor was used to produce 3 nominal concentrations at 1.000, 0.364, and 0.132.
