Indeed if a reflected wave is propagating under an oblique angle and the tangential component is equal to the wavenumber in vacuum then [k.sub.refl] = [square root of ([k.sup.2.sub.y] + [k.sup.2.sub.z])] = [square root of ([k.sup.2.sub.0] + [k.sup.2.sub.z])] > [k.sub.0].
Captiion: Figure 3: (a)-(d) The simulation of speckle pattern at different propagating distances with R = 5 mm, [delta] = 6 mm, and n = 1.
So he, too, has been propagating an ideology very similar to what Marcos propagated: the need for class compromise, the importance of discipline and law and order, the vision of the 'Bagong Lipunan.'
Despite the sceptical comments about the device, the Armed Forces did not stop propagating for it, giving Egyptian people false hope that it could cure them from serious, widespread diseases.
Daniel Bristow stands near to the giant boulder which is taking centre stage in "Propagating Dan's Garden Of Potential" at this year's Chelsea Flower Show.
Bayramov's calculations show that the effect of star-light propagating at 150 million km.
It has been shown that the incident wave, interacting with a free plate edge, gives rise to a system of reflected waves, consisting of propagating and non-propagating modes.
Using the linear superposition principle one can see that u(x,t) = v(x,t) + w(x,t), where v(x,t) and w(x,t) are electric fields of the pulses propagating along positive direction of x axis (from left to right) and in opposite direction (from right to left) respectively.
The main question was if the ultrasonic wave, mode converted from the longitudinal to the shear wave, and then propagating along the waveguide, reflected back from the back wall of the waveguide then mode converted again at the front surface will propagate back to the longitudinal wave transducer.
In one experimental case, beams of internal waves propagating in the same horizontal direction as the translation of the vortex dipole (co-propagating) were observed bending to the horizontal and the wave energy was presumably absorbed by the dipole at a critical level.
Propagating from seed is fun but most of us buy bare rooted stock to plant between now and spring.
They also appealed to the central leadership of PML-N Youth Wing to take strict action against the opportunists, who are propagating against Jehangir Kharoti.
