A rheostat is an adjustable resistor so constructed that its resistance may be changed without opening the circuit in which it may be connected. Conventional rheostats are adjusted mechanically. This thesis presents a method of adjusting resistance electrically by varying the light intensity incident on the surface of a photoconductive...
The purpose of this study was to statistically evaluate one kind
of new elementary science curriculum materials. The materials;
(1) are written at five reading levels to partially meet the reading
ability spread found in the intermediate grades, (2) provide ways to
stimulate class discussion, and (3) provide three levels...
The terminal reactions in the biosynthetic pathway of methionine
in Saccharomyces cerevisiae were investigated in this study. Analyses
of a number of methionine auxotrophs for biochemical deficiences
established four mutant groups. It was observed from qualitative feeding
experiments that some auxotrophs were able to utilize S-adenosylmethionine
(AM) and S-adenosyl-homocysteine (AH)...
Gonatus fabricii (Lichtenstein, 1818), G. magister Berry,
1913, G. anonychus Pearcy and Voss, 1963, and Gonatopsis borealis
Sasaki, 1923 (Gonatidae) are squid forming a major portion of the
cephalopod fauna found off the Oregon coast. A study was undertaken
to determine the morphological differences among the four species
The probable pollution distribution and flushing times have been
calculated for the Columbia River Estuary, a coastal plain estuary.
The pollution distribution was determined by the fresh water fraction
and by the diffusion equation. The flushing times were calculated by
the modified tidal prism method and by the fraction of...
