On the other hand, if the thickness of the toroid is negated (r = 0), the toroidal solenoid is reduced to a ring, and the helical solenoid is reduced to a helix.
(2) Simultaneously with the angular motion sensor, a gravity-sensitive sensor (sensitive to the inclination angle), for example, an accelerometer, is placed on the platform: let, for simplicity, the accelerometer sensitivity axis is directed along the OY axis, that is, it lies in the toroid plane.
Evidently, the adjacent windings on the L-L core and the split toroid core are not at all close to the ideal values.
The characterization is performed from a measurement bench with a coaxial line, in which the samples have to be well-adapted so that the composite sample with two parallel faces should have a toroid form with 7 mm outer diameter, 3 mm inner diameter, and 1,9 mm to 2 mm thickness.
proposed the conceptual truss design MSRR-ORTHOBOT [87] with telescopic links having split toroids at two ends and with one toroid connected to link via revolute joint.
These cavities come in different shapes such as sphere, toroid, disk, and cylinder.
In three dimensions, this region corresponds to a toroid, or spherical ring, with cross-sectional radius [r.sub.2] and external radius [approximately equal to] a.
DNA fragmentation was found to discrete into smaller fragments in the 20-25 kb range rather than much larger 50-kb toroid fragments detected by other studies [3,34].
Whereas both [[psi].sub.0,1,0] and its square display an overall shape of slightly prolate spheroid with a plane of zero amplitude or density between two nearly hemispherical lobes, the square of either [[psi].sub.0,1,1] or [[psi].sub.0,1,-1], calculated as [[absolute value of [[psi].sub.0,1,1].sup.2] = [[psi].sub.0,1,1] * [[psi].sub.0,1,1] or analogously, displays as an oblate toroid with zero density along polar axis z.
Rather than a toroid, the plasma in their reactor forms a column 100 cm long with a 1cm radius that can persist for as long as it is needed.

Finally, all three pairs of discs fuse around the larval esophagus, forming a toroid of juvenile tissue (torus stage, Maslakova, 2010a, table 1) at 36-44 d.
