Electron flow causes a shift in electrons along a conductor.
As the evaporator is powered from a direct current source, electron flow of the thermoelectronic emission is exposed to constant electromagnetic and electrostatic fields.
Although several studies have suggested that propofol has a direct effect on oxidative phosphorylation, (2,21,22) it remains unclear whether propofol exerts this effect by uncoupling the mitochondrial electron flow (20) or by a protonophoric effect, increasing the proton influx across the inner mitochondrial membrane.
The continuous attenuation circuit is built on the company's UL-recognized GTT technology that works by opposing changes in electron flow on the ground wire while not compromising ground safety.
The Theon is built on UL-recognized GTT technology, which works by opposing changes in electron flow on the ground wire while not compromising intrinsic ground safety.
In the end, the electrons in the fuel cell are transferred to oxygen, so what we are really doing is putting a wire in between the microbe and the oxygen and harvesting this electron flow that otherwise would just go directly to oxygen.
Although the materials used in the new chip seem similar to computer chips, the microfluidics device differs from a semi-conductor because fluid flow differs from electron flow.
When gas flows over the Ionix Static Eliminator's patented membrane, it is converted from an insulator, which resists electron flow, to a conductor, which facilitates it.
The section titled "How Things Work" provides a tutorial on the basic concepts of atomic structure, electron flow, electrical laws, and circuits.
Most show dotted lines that signify the electron flow from the cathode filament abruptly stopped by the tungsten anode.
