Uncertainty, Calibration and Probability: The Statistics of Scientific and Industrial Measurement

C.F Dietrich
January 01, 1991

All measurements are subject to error because no quantity can be known exactly; hence, any measurement has a probability of lying within a certain range. The more precise the measurement, the smaller the range of uncertainty. Uncertainty, Calibration and Probability is a comprehensive treatment of...

Physical Acoustics and Metrology of Fluids

Martin Trusler
January 01, 1991

The interaction of sound waves with the medium through which they pass can be used to investigate the thermophysical properties of that medium. With the advent of modern instrumentation, it is now possible to determine the speed and absorption of sound with extremely high precision and, through the...

Ultra-Cold Neutrons

R. Golub, D Richardson, S.K Lamoreaux
January 01, 1991

Ultra-Cold Neutrons is a complete, self-contained introduction and review of the field of ultra-cold neutron (UCN) physics. Over the last two decades, developments in UCN technology include the storage of UCN in material and magnetic bottles for time periods limited only by the beta decay rate of...

Michael Faraday and The Royal Institution: The Genius of Man and Place (PBK)

J.M Thomas
January 01, 1991

A self-educated man who knew no mathematics, Michael Faraday rose from errand boy to become one of Britain's greatest scientists. Faraday made the discoveries upon which most of twentieth-century technology is based and readers of this book will enjoy finding out in how many ways we are indebted to...

Echoes of War: The Story of H2S Radar

Bernard Sir Lovell
January 01, 1991

August 1939 was a time of great flux. The fear of impending war fueled by the aggression of Nazi Germany forced many changes. Young people pursuing academic research were plunged into an entirely different kind of research and development. For Bernard Lovell, the war meant involvement in one of the...

Semiconductor Devices for Electronic Tuners

Seiichi Watanabe
January 01, 1991

Describes in detail the semiconductor components of the electronic tuner of televisions and VCRs. Covers voltage-variable capacitance diodes, band-switch diodes, dual-gate FETs, and others, including their performance as mediators of tuning and amplification. Emphasizes coverage of the analysis of...
