equation

 [e-kwa´zhun]
an expression of equality between two parts.
Henderson-Hasselbalch equation a formula for calculating the pH of a buffer solution such as blood plasma, pH = pKa + log [BA/HA]; [HA] is the concentration of a free weak acid; [BA] the concentration of the ionized form of this acid; pKa the acid dissociation constant, a measure of the ionization equilibrium of the acid.

Patient discussion about equation

Q. how do i determine what is the right weight i need to be? i know there is a way to calculate it, an equation , what are the parameters in it ?

A. I don't mean to burst any bubbles, but BMI is definitely not a good way to determine what weight you should be. If you considered that a body builder or a professional athlete is considered obese under BMI standards then you would know what I mean. Here is an article about it I found on Medical News Today: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/49991.php

For values of G less than [v.sup.2]/[micro], the behaviour of the mathematical solution becomes unphysical.
In this paper I will argue that such so-called mathematical solutions miss, and always will miss, the point of Zeno's arguments.
Based on the analysis of the existing mathematical solutions, we have chosen the methods of automata theory in developing the model and the operation process of the digital device to ensure visualization and practical value [4].
Thus, when it comes to problems that require mathematical solutions, we must start with an analytical approach that visualizes the question before undertaking the solution.
Also, at a few points, mathematical solutions are shown in their fullness, displaying calculations in more detail than most readers would want.
The conversion of palm tree waste into bio-fuel and deriving mathematical solutions to reduce C02 emissions were but a few projects students showcased at last week's World Future Energy Summit.
In this book on ancient Near Eastern and Egyptian mathematics, Rudman (physics, Technion Institute, Haifa, emeritus)explores the ways in which ancient mathematicians worked out mathematical solutions to practical problems, like building pyramids and ziggurats, or tracing the square root of two apparently just for fun.
At ASU, Camacho loves teaching her students with ganas, helping to open doors while continuing her research working with sociologists and biologists to find mathematical solutions to issues affecting communities of color.
In this study, mathematical solutions showing how to optimize a multiplanar valve to increase the orifice area were shown with the aid of illustrations (Fig.
Journals also contained mathematical solutions generated individually and built on collectively and completed handouts during connecting to practice activities.
Teaching mathematics within this type of contextualization is powerful, but it also presupposes that teachers are well equipped to understand the sociological, political, and economic implications of mathematical solutions. For teachers of mathematics, especially at the elementary and middle school levels, this may be a daunting task, pushing them beyond the bounds to which they are exposed during their teacher training.
