Analytical results of the loaded end deflection of the straight cantilever beam are obtained from:
When applying voltage onto the contacts, the material due to its piezoelectric properties excites the end of cantilever and in case of the glucose concentration change in the liquid where it is immersed the feedback in the form of frequency shift of micro cantilever response is obtained.
The reversibility (n) of the cantilever sensors at different humidities was calculated as follows [21, 22]:
Calculation based on cantilever dimension and modulus of elasticity is not a precise method as the dimensions are not well known and modulus of elasticity can vary from one batch to another due to different deposition conditions, specific treatment, and so forth [20].
What really sets the building apart against the Beirut skyline, however, is the unique silhouette of its cantilevered central sections, which look as though they have been pushed to either side of the tower like bricks in a giant game of Jenga.
As the gas flow was turned on, the resonance frequency of the active cantilever increased again to 29.276 kHz with the resonance frequency shift of 0.77 kHz, and the frequency decreased to 28.316 kHz due to gas flow being turned off.

The uniform cantilever beam carrying a tip-mass at the free end under base excitation is shown schematically in Figure 1.
Solving for the power dissipated in the tip-sample interaction, and considering that b = k/Q[[omega].sub.0], Q is the quality factor of cantilever, we have (Equation 17 and 18):
