resolution

 [rez″o-loo´shun]
1. subsiding of a pathologic state, such as the reduction of inflammation or the softening and disappearance of swelling.
2. perception of two adjacent points as separate; in microscopy, the smallest distance at which two adjacent objects can be distinguished as separate.
3. in radiology, a measure of how much detail a device can print or display.

res·o·lu·tion (Rs),

(rez'ō-lū'shŭn),
1. The arrest of an inflammatory process without suppuration; the absorption or breaking down and removal of the products of inflammation or of a new growth.
2. The optic ability to distinguish detail such as the separation of closely adjacent objects. Synonym(s): resolving power (3)
[L. resolutio, a slackening, fr. re-solvo, pp. -solutus, to loosen, relax]

resolution

(rĕz′ə-lo͞o′shən)
n.
1. The clarity or fineness of detail that can be distinguished in an image, often measured as the number or the density of the discrete units, such as pixels or dots, that compose it.
2. Medicine The subsiding or termination of an abnormal condition, such as a fever or inflammation.

The fourth and final phase of Masters and Johnson’s four-stage model of physiological responses to sexual stimulation, which follows orgasm, and is characterised by muscle relaxation, reduced heart rate and vasodilation. For most males, and some females, this is accompanied by the refractory period, in which further orgasm is physiologically impossible.

resolution

the minimum distance between two points at which they can be seen as such rather than as a single point. With the light microscope this is approximately half the wavelength of light used in illumination. Only with a shorter wavelength can greater resolution be achieved, as in the ELECTRON MICROSCOPE which gives a resolution of about 0.5 nm.

Patient discussion about resolution

Q. What's your 2009 New Year's resolution? Hello friends and members! I encourage you to share your thoughts, aspirations and resolutions for 2009 with us. Some of us want to spend more time with family and friends, quit smoking, lose weight, get in shape or just enjoy life.

A. I hope to straighten out my marriage, my son's school troubles, get a better counselor for him, find out what is wrong with my husbands health and hopefully start feeling better myself. Just alot has been going on over the holidays that made them pretty crappy. So now it's time to change things. No ones going to do it but me...so I must get busy.

To understand the bearing this will have on the print process, our team evaluated not only at area ratio--which has been the historic measure of printability--but also at the area ratio's associated aspect ratios. The results were intriguing, to say the least.
Caption: Figure 5: Aspect ratio of the bubbles with different contractive ratios (Re = 28.2, Eo = 16, and Mo = 0.01).
Figure 9 displays damage variable-strain curves of numerical specimens of rocks with different aspect ratios. According to the figure, the curves flatten in the elastic stage, which indicates that the damage degree and damage rate are small; in the elastic stage when rocks are stable, small cracks in coal rocks quickly develop into joint fissures, thereby macroscopically damaging the specimens and dramatically increasing the damage degree and damage rate; in the damage phase, the damage degree reaches the maximum while the damage degree and damage rate gradually level off.
Venning [4] focused on a model whose slant angle was 25[degrees] and researched the relationship between the aspect ratio and trailing vortex structure in detail by PIV measurement.

As previously suggested, volumetric loading is a further critical requirement for clay-based barrier generation, and can be balanced against aspect ratio and refinement cost.
As seen in the figure, difference between middle and side moment values increase by high aspect ratio of the element.
