In short, pH of AYGG solution had little influence on adsorption in the range of investigation, possibly due to synergistic interaction of electrostatic force, [pi]-[pi] and hydrogen bond, and this phenomenon is favorable for the system with fluctuant pH values for dyes removal.
According to previously published works [13], the Differential Quadratic Method DQM is a suitable method to produce a reduced-order model (ROM) in the case of clamped-clamped microbeam (plate) with nonlinear electrostatic force.
Using Equations (A1), (A7) and (A3), the electrostatic force between the conical portion of the tip (r > R sin [alpha]) and the substrate is given by:

Basically, electrostatic forces in the production process cause fine droplets to be transformed into solid microfibers, which are deposited on a carrier nonwovens, which in turn is continuously run over the backing electrode.
Increased applied electrical potential resulted in an increase in the electrostatic force that was responsible for the transport of the ejected, charged jet to the collective screen.
As the membrane is driven up and down by a change in electrostatic force, the distance between the two mirrors changes, selecting a wavelength.
With the use of a patented electrostatic clamp, the wafer is held on the platen by an electrostatic force (eliminating the need for frontside wafer clamps).
