Again, the deviation to the left of the fetal hemoglobin saturation curve usually produces higher SpO[sub]2 readings for fetal hemoglobin when compared to adult hemoglobin.[19],[20] Moreover, there exists a natural selection to increase the frequency of alleles enhancing oxygen transfer, and this is strongest early in life and decreases in strength with age.
The celerity-effective saturation curve may be applicable to the bimodal soil hydraulic functions to demonstrate the distributions of pore water velocities for natural soils.
[b'.sub.w,p] = slope of the air saturation curve at the water film temperature of the tube wall surface (J*[kg.sup.-1]*[K.sup.-1])
A transformer typically operates near the knee point of the saturation curve. Only a single AC component is included in the transformer flux linkage when the transformer operates in the steady state.
Figure 2 is displaying saturation curve from which [V.sub.max] for [K.sub.i] calculation was obtained as described above.
where: [lambda] - flux in CT core and A - can be calculated for each saturation curve and is dependent on [omega]=2[pi]f (f=50 Hz), S and [U.sub.s].
"It takes time and energy for magnetic molecular rearrangement, for magnetism to get started, so there's a lag in the saturation curve.
The curve search starts at the saturation curve, then moves downward from the saturation curve to zero.
In other words, saturation curve of the generator is lifted up which means that generator can work at higher operating point.
Our first observation about the images out of the A7R was that they were exceptionally flat in their contrast and saturation curve, but that is a given for RAW files.
For binding stoichiometry estimation the plot of fluorescence intensity of the complex versus TNP-ATP amount added to the probe of protein was built (a so-called saturation curve).
As mentioned in [6], the most important aspects which influence the transformer overvoltages are voltage at transformer bus before switching, line length, switching angle, saturation curve slope, and remanent flux.
