Now, substituting equation (5) into equations (6) and (7), again substituting the modified equations (6) and (7), into equation (8), using new equations into (3) and (4), we can obtained the governing equations for the mechanical displacements and the electrical potential followed by Bleustein [3]
In this context, a sustained cyclic delivery can be attained with preprogrammed systems where the implantable capsule incorporates a battery and electronic control units for the modulation of the applied electrical potential.
Reactance is seen as a time delay between an applied electrical potential and current.
When bacteria transfer electrons to graphite, an electrical potential is created that can produce electricity when in a circuit.
There are three components to the rust issue: the material, the environment and the electrical potential.
Characterization of this device has included determining the electrical potential profile across the experimental area for a given applied voltage and the detection of possible pH gradients.
For all the groups, in addition to increased wound closure, the endogenous potentials of the injured skin approached preinjury levels, but by day 21, the electrical potential of the wound site remained positive compared with the surrounding intact skin.
It took him six years of painstaking research to determine the differences in the electrical potentials of the human skin's inner and outer layers and that as the barrier function is compromised, the skin's power runs down and the difference in the electrical potential decreases.
A charged insulator does not have electrical potential (voltage) in the technical sense because it cannot lose a charge by contact with ground.
Organic salts in our body which leach out through skin, including the telltale ridges on our fingertips, make tiny changes in the electrical potential (voltage) of metals.
Seventy-five microns of zinc ethyl silicate with 86% zinc dust in dry film gave by far the lowest electrical potential.
That's why voltage is usually referred to as electrical pressure--it's a measure of the difference in electrical potential between where the electrons are, and where they want to be.
