Short non-flexible elements of cable were driven harmonically
in water while constrained by springs. The cable elements were observed
to oscillate at approximately the Strouhal vortex shedding
frequency. Damped resonance occurred near the point where the natural
frequency and the Strouhal vertex shedding frequency were equal.
Transverse oscillation amplitudes greater...
Claytonia perfoliata is a west-American polyploid complex of
common annuals (x=6). The species is polymorphic; exomorphic
characters are often variable within local populations. In a transect
of the Columbia River Gorge diploids, tetraploids, hexaploids, octoploids,
and decaploids were collected, which varied in shape of basal
and cauline leaves, degree of...
The dielectric relaxation of V₂ 0₅ was investigated using the method of Davidson and Cole. By means of an Argand diagram, deviation from an exact Debye dielectric was established. This was done with the parameter β. For a Debye dielectric β= 1. The largest value of β for V₂O₅ was...
The effect of different oxygen atmospheres on growth, energy
charge and enterotoxin production of Staphylococcus aureus was
investigated. Three atmospheres, air, 5% oxygen in nitrogen and
20% oxygen in nitrogen, were tested on three strains producing
enterotoxins A, B and C. Colony forming units (CFU), dry weight,
dissolved oxygen, pH,...
