Amplitudes Sentence Examples
Disturbances of the former kind lead to vibrations of harmonic type, whose amplitudes always remain small; but disturbances, whose wave-length exceeds the circumference, result in a greater and greater departure from the cylindrical figure.
The amplitudes of these tones are proportional to the products of a and b multiplied by X or µ.
If this be overlooked, a wrong impression may be derived as to the absolute amplitudes of the changes.
The amplitudes and phases of the temperature waves at different points are observed by taking readings of the thermometers at regular intervals.
The wave motion due to any element of the surface is called a secondary wave, and in estimating the total effect regard must be paid to the phases as well as the amplitudes of the components.Advertisement
The amplitudes of oscilla Ia tion of the various particles have definite ratios to one another, and the phases are in agreement, the absolute amplitude (depending on C) and the phase-constant () being alone arbitrary.
He showed that in a simple Marconi antenna the variations of potential are a maximum at the insulated top and a minimum at the base, whilst the current amplitudes are a maximum at the top earthed end and zero at the top end.
If the amplitudes of vibration which thus mutually interfere are moreover equal, the effect is the total mutual destruction of the vibratory motion.
The following table gives the period, for various amplitudes a, in terms of that of oscillation in an infinitely small arc about a vertical axis half-way between the points of attachment of the upper string.
The motion of the system consequent on arbitrary initial conditions may be obtained by superposition of the n normal modes with suitable amplitudes and phases.Advertisement
The intensities of the incident, reflected and refracted streams are then measured in the same way, and we have merely to express that the square of the amplitude of the incident vibrations is equal to the sum of the squares of the amplitudes of the reflected and refracted vibrations.
A subsequent determination of the plane of polarization gives the ratio of the amplitudes of the vibrations in the component streams.
Scaling observed and calculated amplitudes is making by the comparison of its the origine peaks of Patterson.
Maximum tidal amplitudes are found at the head of the basin where reflection occurs.
At higher oscillation amplitudes, the test probe actually bounces on the surface to permit the investigation of impact phenomena.Advertisement
Convergence of the scattering amplitudes with the number of partial waves is improved by using a procedure which is related to the Pade approximation.
The locations on the board at which zero vibration displacement occurs are called nodes, and the maximum displacement amplitudes occur at the antinodes.
The numbers stored correspond to the amplitudes of the waveform at the sampling instants indicated by the black vertical lines.
Where the waves have opposite amplitudes they destructively interfere to give low intensity.
In particular, harmonic amplitudes for the various errors show minima at specific loads as expected.Advertisement
Probability amplitudes give probabilities when squared, and the rule for combining them was discovered by quantum physicist Richard Feynman.
These mean values, ranges and amplitudes are all measured in volts per metre (in the open).
The third line gives the range of the regular diurnal inequality, the next four lines the amplitudes of the first four Fourier waves into which the regular diurnal inequality has been analysed.
In this table, unlike Table IV., amplitudes are all expressed as decimals of the mean value of the potential gradient for the corresponding season.
Now we can see that two notes of the same pitch, but of different quality, or different form of displacement curve, will, when thus analysed, break up into a series having the same harmonic wave-lengths; but they may differ as regards the members of the series present and their amplitudes and epochs.Advertisement
We may regard quality, then, as determined by the members of the harmonic series present and their amplitudes and epochs.
The combination tones thus produced in the source should have a physical existence in the air, and the amplitudes of those represented in (35) should be of the same order.
The diffusivity can be deduced from observations at different depths x' and x", by observing the ratio of the amplitudes, which is (x '- x ") for a simple-harmonic wave.
