Expansivity implies sensitive dependence because expansivity deals with the distance between two nearby points and how their orbits separate continuously.
Also the clay sample without marble is classified as "Moderate" in terms of expansivity but its class become "Negligible" in terms of expansivity when it contains 20% marble powder.
The resultant situation is that the expansivity [[alpha].sub.P] of ILs reported in literature was either nearly independent of T [18] or noticeably dependent of T [3,19].

In the probability density function the gravitation and buoyancy effect conditioned statistical weights at the initial time moment 1/N = 0.39 and c/N = 0.18 when the wind speed [v.sub.x] = 1 m/s, and 1/N = 0.45 and c/N = 0.03 when the and buoyancy coefficients a and b, expansivity of cloud [beta] when the wind speed [v.sub.x] = 1 m/s, are a = 0.9; [beta] = 0.7; p = 0.15, and when [v.sub.x] = 2.5 m/s - a = 1.4; b = 0.7; [beta] = 0.04.
