The tall figure loping after them was the equivalent of an immortal pit bull, one of the Watchers' own elite personal guards.
My father was a high ranking political leader in the immortal equivalent of a political system.
Suppose next that a fixed insulated conductor is somehow kept at the potential of the air at a given point, then the measurement of its potential is equivalent to a measurement of that of the air.
The coefficient of this rise is equivalent to half a vibration (o.5) per degree Fahr.
Pincta, pitta, a painted or marked vessel), a liquid measure of capacity, equivalent to s of a gallon.
When work is done against these forces no full equivalent of potential energy may be produced; this applies especially to frictional forces, for if the motion of the system be reversed the forces will be also reversed and will still oppose the motion.
Mayer, a physician at Heilbronn, published an attempt to determine the mechanical equivalent of heat from the heat produced when air is compressed.
Joule afterwards proved (see below) that Mayer's assumption was in accordance with fact, so that his method was a sound one as far as experiment was concerned; and it was only on account of the values of the specific heats of air at constant pressure and at constant volume employed by him being very inexact that the value of the mechanical equivalent of heat obtained by Mayer was very far from the truth.
By ca-sing two conical surfaces of cast-iron immersed in mercury and contained in an iron vessel to rub against one another when pressed together by a lever, Joule obtained 776.045 foot-pounds for the mechanical equivalent of heat when the heavy weights were used, and 774.93 foot-pounds with the small driving weights.
The wheel was connected to a receiving antenna and the mercury to earth or to an equivalent balancing capacity.
Very briefly stated, his method consists in sending out a group of wave trains at certain irregular but assigned intervals of time to constitute the simplest signal equivalent to a dot in the Morse code, and a sequence of such trains, say three following one another, to constitute the dash on the Morse code.
When the methods for effecting this had been worked out practically it finally led to the inventions of Slaby, Braun and others being united into a system called the Telefunken system, which, as regards the transmitter, consisted in forming a closed oscillation circuit comprising a condenser, spark gap and inductance which at one point was attached either directly or through a condenser to the earth or to an equivalent balancing capacity, and at some other point to a suitably tuned antenna.
(An exajoule is roughly equivalent to a quadrillion BTUs or 174 million barrels of oil.)
However, locked up in ocean water—just suspended in ocean water—may be the equivalent of eight more such cubes.
To give that terrible order seemed to him equivalent to resigning the command of the army.
