How to use Absolute-magnitude in a sentence
This method has been very generally recommended, but it is really bad, because, although it diminishes the absolute magnitude of the correction, it greatly increases the uncertainty of it and therefore the probable error of the result.
Conditions of Stiffness and Strength.After the arrangement of the pieces of a structure and the size and figure of their joints or surfaces of contact have been determined so as to fulfil the conditions of stabilityconditions which depend mainly on the position and direction of the resultant or total load on each piece, and the relative magnitude of the loads on the different piecesthe dimensions of each piece singly have to be adjusted so as to fulfil the conditions of stiffness and strengthconditions which depend not only on the absolute magnitude of the load on each piece, and of the resistances by which it is balanced, but also on the mode of distribution of the load over the piece, and of the resistances over the joints.
It happens that the absolute magnitude of p" cannot be experimentally determined, but this is immaterial, as we are only concerned with differences.
Remember the more luminous star has an absolute magnitude that is less than a fainter star's absolute magnitude!
For instance, when they insisted that the visual apparent magnitude of IUMA was lower than its absolute magnitude.Advertisement
