    fine-structure in the G-band, which was interpreted as being the result of extreme curvature or ‘wrinkling’, similar to what is observed in single wall carbon nanotubes. In this case, the doubly degenerate in-plane E2g optical mode can be split between phonons along the nanotube axis, and those that are perpendicular to it, with the degree of splitting, being a strong function of the nanotube size (i.e. degree of curvature), even in the absence of any externally applied strain [28]. G-peak splitting has

    spring. This behavior might represent an energy saving adaptation to help with respiration. Past studies have found that found that subaqueous fliers have more of a V- shaped furcular with a high anteroposterior curvature, whereas soaring bird are more U-shaped with low anteroposterior curvature. This study seeks to clarify this form-function relationship through the use of eigenshape morphometric analysis along with phylogenetic comparative methods (PCMs), and phylogenetic Flexible Discriminant Analysis

  • Three Types Of Linear And Planar Structured Donor ( D ) -acceptor

    887 Words  | 4 Pages

    Three types of linear and planar-structured donor (D)–acceptor (A) type alternating copolymers were synthesized by incorporating intrachain noncovalent Coulomb interactions, based on 2,5-bisthieno[3,2-b]thiophene-1,4-bis(decyltetradecyloxy)benzene and benzothiadiazole (BT) moieties. The chain linearity and systematic adjustment of interchain organization was achieved by the incorporation of different number of electronegative fluorine atoms onto BT, which significantly affected the frontier energy

  • College Essay On Scoliosis

    728 Words  | 3 Pages

    These vertebrae play a crucial role in protected the body’s command center, the spinal cord. But what happens when a disorder prevents the spinal column from functioning correctly? Scoliosis is a musculoskeletal disorder that causes abnormal lateral curvature of the spine and it effects millions of people in the US per year. I have chosen this disorder because I am aspiring to become a chiropractor and scoliosis is a typical condition that chiropractors help treat on a daily basis. There are three different

    extensor carpi ulnaris tendon (ECU). Articular cartilage covers a 90 to 135 degrees arc of the ulnar head, and only a 47 to 80 degree arc on the sigmoid notch.[20] One important geometric joint characteristic of the DRUJ is the radius of curvature between the two articulating surfaces. The radius of curvature of the ulnar head (averages 10 mm) is different from the radius of curvature of the sigmoid notch (averages 15 mm). Consequently,

    Scoliosis: Abnormal Curvature of the Spine Kendall Walker Saddleback College This paper was submitted to Tina Walker in partial fulfillment of the course requirements for Biology 11 Human Anatomy, Saddleback College. Scoliosis- Abnormal Curvature of the Spine When somebody isn’t having the best day, they are most likely to mention their heart, their mood, a headache, fatigue, or even shortness of breath. However, these symptoms can be caused by scoliosis, an abnormal

  • What Is Idiopathic Scoliosis?

    1366 Words  | 6 Pages

    Idiopathic Scoliosis is a spinal deformity that involves an irregular curvature of the spine. This condition can appear and progress during any growing period in healthy children or young adults, affecting more girls then boys. During these growing periods the spine of the child can be considered developing in the shape of an “S” or a “C” (Rigo, Villagrasa, & Gallo, 2010, para. 1). There are three different types of idiopathic scoliosis that can affect a specific age group. The first is infantile

  • The Focal Length of Spherical Mirrors

    2: The focal length of a convex mirror Done by: I.D: 201100635 24 Oct. 11 Section 1: To determine the focal length of a Concave Mirror by locating the centre of curvature. ------------------------------------------------- ABSTRACT: In this paper we want to discuss the focal point of a concave mirror by locating the centre of curvature. The focal point is a point in space at which light incident towards the mirror and travelling parallel to the principal axis will meet after reflection. The diagram

    inequality and its generalization as consequences. In item 14, a classification result on four dimensional gradient shrinking solitons with nonnegative isotropic curvature was proved. This result generalizes the earlier result of Naber, which proves a classification under the stronger assumption of bounded nonnegative curvature operator. The research conducted in items 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 are related to Birkhoff ergodic theorem (which was applied by H. Weyl to understand the retreats and advances

    is a clear suggestion that Spartacus was about to or already performed some sort of movement. There is also a dominant “s” like shape runs through the body beginning from above the knees and continues until the neck, this “s” like curvature provides the figure with a sense of autonomous life. The rough contrasting texture Foyatier uses makes Spartacus much more realistic and proves to be very effective. His use of highly stylized polish contrasts the shades of the
