Sentence Examples


  • The chemical potentials are clearly functions of the composition of the system, and of its temperature and pressure.
  • Observations on mountain tops generally show high potentials near the ground.
  • Instead of calculating the direction and magnitude of the resultant force on each particle arising from the action of neighbouring particles, he formed a single expression which is the aggregate of all the potentials arising from the mutual action between pairs of particles.
  • Suppose it is required to measure the difference of potentials V and V' of two conductors.
  • If W is the weight required to depress the attracted disk into the same sighted position when the plates are unelectrified and g is the acceleration of gravity, then the difference of potentials of the conductors tested is expressed by the formula V - V'=(d - d') /87 W where S denotes the area of the attracted disk.
