I know its a bit small for all of us to squeeze onto but in a distance ratio of scale to Earth miles I would suggest that Mars would be the equivalent of a trip to New Zealand where the Moon is just up the road.
In addition, g = [d.sub.Y]/[d.sub.X] is the distance ratio from BS [right arrow] R and from R [right arrow] D.
I know it's a bit small for all of us to squeeze on to but in a distance ratio of scale to earth miles I would suggest that Mars would be the equivalent of a trip to New Zealand where the moon is just up the road.
The results indicate that a matching relationship between the choice ratio and the distance ratio was shown only in a condition in which longer cumulative distances were required in terminal links.
Objective: To determine the frequency of difficult intubation in obese patients with neck circumference to thyromental distance ratio (NC/TM) [greater than or equal to]5.0.
The importance of neck circumference to thyromental distance ratio (NC/TM) as a predictor of difficult intubation in Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) patients.
Comparison of five methods in predicting difficult laryngoscopy: Neck circumference, neck circumference to thyromental distance ratio, the ratio of height to thyromental distance, upper lip bite test and Mallampati test.
(7) calculate the distance ratio K, and change the membership degrees of [C.sub.1] pixels with the smallest distance ratios to [u.sub.1k] =1,[u.sub.2k] = 0 ; change the membership degrees of [C.sub.2] pixels with the biggest distance ratios to [u.sub.1k] = 0,[u.sub.2k] = 1.
A higher intercanine intermolar distance ratio was observed in low angle subjects in mandible arch (0.75 +-0.05) while 0.77+-0.12 ratio values were observed for medium angle subjects in maxillary arch.
However, it was found that there is a weak positive relation between step distance ratio and jump contact time (r=0.33, p<0.05).
Thus, the theoretical Grade 3 muscle strength value is calculated based on externally judged criteria by measuring body weight and limb segment lengths and then performing theoretical calculation using anthropometric measures (limb segment weighting factors and center of gravity distance ratio).
In untreated naive rats, the distance ratio generally increased with time, indicating a habituation effect, and sham DBS-treated naive rats and DBS-treated sham-lesioned rats retained this behavior (Figure 12).
