1. of equal value or force.
2. in chemistry, having the same valence.
anxiety-equivalent translation of anxiety into a kind of emotional activity, e.g., the experiencing or expression of angry feelings.
full time equivalent (FTE) the equivalent of one full time staff member; a total number of full time equivalents is planned for in making budget allocations. A combination of part time staff members can be used to equal one full time equivalent.

2. That which is equal in size, weight, force, or any other quality to something else.
3. Having the capability to counterbalance or neutralize each other.
4. Having equal valencies.
5. Synonym(s): gram equivalent
6. Used to describe a symptom complex that is less commonly associated with a syndrome than the usual classic symptoms or chief complaint.

2 represents the categorical variable, PMHS-PDMS hydride equivalent weight, along the horizontal axis and the size of each rectangle within a column represents the probability of obtaining a coating with a given relative degree of coating film uniformity/integrity.
Since the use of the PMHS-PDMS copolymer possessing a hydride equivalent weight of 135 provided the best crosslinking and film uniformity and integrity, this copolymer was used as the starting material for producing QAS-functional PDMS polymers were prepared that possessed variations in QAS moiety concentration.
Initial screening experiments were conducted using the same PMHS-PDMS copolymer starting material used for the addition-cured systems described in Table 6 which possessed a hydride equivalent weight of 135 g/mol.
frequency in the lithiated Dow-805 (805 g/equiv is the nominal equivalent weight of the ionomer) ionomer membrane imbibed with these solvents.
Therefore, a comparable Dow polymer would be one with an equivalent weight ([EW.sub.D]) of 918 g/equiv.
Examples of such tests used in quality control include titrations (acid number, epoxy equivalent weight, and residual isocyanate), product solubility measurements (cloud point), product viscosity (Gardner, bubble seconds, cone and plate), chromatographic techniques (GC, LC, GPC), and the strength of a characteristic peak in the ATR-FTIR spectrum, to name a few.
The reaction temperature profile (Figure 10) shows their differences in heat-up schedule on the way to the final hold until reaction "completion" as determined by standard offline measurements (acid number, AN, and epoxy equivalent weight, eew).
