In addition to electrostatic forces, thermal, biological, and magnetic forces have also been used in these devices as a means of locomotion and manipulation of components (Pelesko & Bernstein 2003).
The higher crystallinity in these two samples may be due to the finer fiber diameter between the large beads sizes unit as a result of electrostatic force during electrospinning.
In this present work we used a 2D distributed model in this approach the electrostatic force is a function of deflection unlike in 1D model the electrostatic force is uniformally distributed on the area.
For the geometry depicted schematically in Figure A1, the electrostatic force between the tip (denoted by subscript T) and the substrate (denoted by subscript S), [F.
Equilibrium occurs when the spring force (kx) equals the electrostatic force of the actuator
At the same time, the cantilever must have enough rigidity and spring force to bounce back to the open state once the electrostatic force is released.
It can be observed that as contact time was above 250 min, the adsorption capacity for AYGG followed the order of LZ-1 > LZ-O > LZ-2, indicating synergistic effect of pore size, specific surface area, hydrogen bond, [pi]-[pi] and electrostatic force were responsible for the adsorption of AYGG.
When the solution of coated nanoparticles is mixed together, the positively and negatively charged coatings are attracted to each other by electrostatic force to form a "nano-network.
If the electrostatic force on the particle over comes the gravitational and frictional force on it, the particle lift-off from the rest position .
The proprietary micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) valve uses electrostatic force to direct the flow of inert gases.
Also, electrostatic force generation is common in micro-electromechanica] systems (MEMS), and the ability to calibrate such forces from electrical and length measurements could prove beneficial.
