On the other hand, the initial velocity data obtained in a broad range of GSSG concentrations revealed a strong substrate inhibition (Figure 4(a)).
Trajectory 5: v0 = 8.26 m / s, [omega] = 6.9 rad / s, [alpha] = 55[degrees]; - the trajectory chosen to have the same initial velocity as trajectory 3, but larger angles of entry and thrust due to spin (tf = 1.27s, [beta] = 55[degrees]);
Caption: FIGURE 8: Initial velocity versus [v.sub.initial.sup.2] - [v.sub.residual.sup.2] curves from JC and ISV models.
Comparison between the experimental LID and the estimates produced by other breakup theories showed that the IKEMIX model is close to the test results in that the effect of initial velocity is included appropriately.
(4) The kinetic damping of DDA is only dependent on the discounted values of the initial velocity of each time step.
Suppose that the projectile is flat, cylindrical, ideal rigid-plastic material, initial length is 1[degrees], cross-sectional area is [A.sub.0], density is [[rho].sub.p], dynamic yielding stress is [[sigma].sub.d], and initial velocity is [v.sub.0].
Initial velocity for the jumps also showed no treatment effect (1.1 [+ or -] 0.4 m/s for control, 1.2 [+ or -] 0.5 m/s for trimmed trigger hairs, 1.2 [+ or -] 0.5 for sham ablation, one-way ANOVA p = 0.54).
Dynamic crack propagation with the detection of fracture toughness criteria is predicted brittle failure with initial velocity. Shear stress effective stress intensity factor calculations are in good aggrement with predicted results by finite element model.
Serve velocity decreases at the moment when a player makes a contact with the ball by 60-70% compared to its initial velocity (Coe, 2000).
This investigation aimed to investigate the fundamental mechanism of ATP hydrolysis by Escherichia coli caseinolytic peptidase B (ClpB), an enzyme that may be capable of preventing neurodegeneration, by determining its steady-state ATP-dependent maximum initial velocity, Michaelis constant, and catalytic constant.
