Accelerations

Acceleration

The act of accelerating, or the state of being accelerated; increase of motion or action; as, a falling body moves toward the earth with an acceleration of velocity; opposed to retardation. A period of social improvement, or of intellectual advancement, contains within itself a principle of acceleration. (i.

(Science: astronomy) Taylor) acceleration of the moon, the increase of the moons mean motion in its orbit, in consequence of which its period of revolution is now shorter than in ancient times. Acceleration and retardation of the tides. See priming of the tides, under priming. Diurnal acceleration of the fixed stars, the amount by which their apparent diurnal motion exceeds that of the sun, in consequence of which they daily come to the meridian of any place about three minutes fifty-six seconds of solar time earlier than on the day preceding. Acceleration of the planets, the increasing velocity of their motion, in proceeding from the apogee to the perigee of their orbits.

Origin: L. Acceleratio: cf. F. Acceleration.

altering centrifuge procedure

No it does not sound ridiculous, it sounds like your PIC has a good understanding of metal fatigue and physics of high accelerations, or simply knows a bit about the safety of centrifuge. So limiting the speed of the rotor to prevent destruction of instrument and experience is generally ...

... of the MEMS. Upon reflection from the free surface the stress wave produces large tensile loads (up to 2 GPa) in sufficiently short times (accelerations up to 108 g) to fail the MEMS dynamically. The substrate stress is measured by monitoring the free surface displacement using a Michelson ...

... is pretty nasty though, compared to the average Morgellons presentation how about samll round white non-pigmented spots and "age" spot accelerations. that is what I have seen. thanx for the link Sabrina, will join today! TO UKGUY AND EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO KNOW MY SECRET FORMULA 8) : ...
