H and d curve

Definition

noun

A graph in which the density of the photographic film (vertical axis) is plotted against the logarithm of the relative exposure (horizontal axis), to illustrate the photographic characteristics of an emulsion (e.g. on an x-ray film).


Supplement

A characteristic curve depicts and measures the relationship between exposure and photographic density. It is used to describe the contrast characteristics of a photographic film for a particular range of exposure. The exposure needed to produce an image is also determined.

It is also called Hurter and Driffield curve (or H & D curve), named after Ferdinand Hurter and Vero Charles Driffield who first developed it.

Minimum Data Points for elisa standard curve

... 4PL or 5PL equations for only 5 data points( 5 standards)? 2. In Elisa test instruction that the company gave me, it is noted that the calibration curve should be a linear plot. But my results can be better explained by non linear curves. Am I allowed to disregard test instruction in this case? ...

Re: Any ideas for vaccine development or anti-viral drugs???

... similar PMOplus components exhibited generally similar PK profiles. The mean peak plasma concentration (Cmax) and area under the concentration curve (AUC) values of the four components exhibited dose-proportional PK. The estimated plasma half-life of all four components was 2 to 5 hours. The ...

Re: Mysterious Tooth

... is solid. There was a hole drilled through near the top (which the leather goes through) and it is solid all the way through. Ignoring the obvious curve of the tooth, another slight clue would be that it isn't straight. Looking down, it has a slight turn or bend to it, like it belonged on the left ...

Re: Brain size=IQ level theory (Blacks vs Whites & Asians)

... black and I think it's pretty obvious that I'm smarter than you. Hate to break it to you. :mrgreen: I also alluded to the frequency distribution curve. Distribution curves don't reflect genetics. IQ can be learned. IQ scores are not frozen in time for all eternity. IQ rises and IQ gaps close. ...
