The effect of equilibrating time on P adsorption at the lower concentration of 5 mg P L-1 illustrated that with an increase in time, the rate of adsorption increased.
Table-4: Effect of equilibrating time on P adsorption at 5 mg L-1 in three soil series.

After planing and equilibrating the EGAR boards, a detailed visual inspection of the glueline was conducted that showed a high number of bondline failures.
Warping of the lumber significantly increased after planing and equilibrating to 12 percent MC.
The initial high MC (153%) and large variability of MC in the wet and dried panels may be the causes of loss of lumber quality occurring after planing and equilibrating to 12 percent MC.
A possible explanation for this may be that the pH of the equilibrating solutions is dependent on ionic strength of the system; as it increases the soil become more acidic.
001 M is used, the ionic strength in the equilibrating solution could also change as the cation concentration increases; therefore, the overall effect should alter the surface charge at each point of the isotherm.
Thus, the presence of sewage sludge represents only marginal deviations from the calculated concentration of heavy metals in isotherm equilibrating solutions.
In each case, these responses are equilibrating (albeit moderate), helping to buffer the NZ cycle from domestically-sourced shocks and, to a lesser extent, from shocks sourced from its major neighbour.
10) First, the equilibrating response of the NZDAUD to NZ and NV shocks indicates that a currency union would entail loss of an existing equilibrating adjustment mechanism for New Zealand.
In her judgment, considerations of time and ignorance weigh in favor of the Lachmannian view of a world in which the equilibrium forces and disequilibrium forces are stalemated and against the Kirznerian view of a world characterized by equilibrating tendencies.
