Table-1 also shows that increasing the dosage of carbon black and used the nanometer sized powders are conducive to the surface area. Of which the nanometer sized CaCO3 and Al2O3 powders with carbon black assisted can evidently improve the surface area (reached to 41.2 m2*g-1).
Total papillary surface area per cm2 was computed by multiplying the average surface area of papillae with density of papillae per cm2 of that rumen as follows:
The greater the surface area of an arrow, the quicker it slows down.
Our results revealed that the surface areas estimated using the marching cube and quasi-Monte Carlo methods were highly close because these two computerized methods are adequately established in the surface area estimation of digitized 3D objects.
To estimate the volume and the surface area of the Vero cell, a uniform random point grid of the fundamental area "a" was superimposed on the images, where "a=XY" (here 13.6 [[micro]m.sup.2]).
It shows that, at 15 minutes, the surface area of aluminium dross increases but as the time increases, the surface area decreases.
To obtain a value for the expSA of a particle, it is assumed that exposed surface area would approximate the surface area of one face of the particle.
Another area of concern when it comes to variability of material surface area measurements is the rate an API goes into solution.
Have teams calculate the volume (V) and surface area (SA) of the simple shapes and have them record their answers on the worksheet.
Once the permanent wound surface area required to cause rapid collapse of a particular species has been achieved, it serves little purpose (from an isolated haemorrhaging perspective) to use a cartridge and bullet combination that will affect a larger permanent or temporary wound surface area.
The product contains ferric citrate having a BET surface area substantially above this surface area threshold.
