velocity

An MRI term for the speed of a thing in a particular direction.

velocity

The rate of a body's motion in a given direction per unit of time; speed Ballistics The speed that a projectile/bullet attains while in flight; the difference in tissue destruction between high- or low-velocity bullets is caused by the fragmentation of the bullet–as occurs in an M-16 semiautomatic weapon, rather than the speed of the bullet. See Ballistics, Critical velocity.

Fume hood face velocity should be analyzed and carefully specified because there are many benefits to operating at a lower face velocity, and higher face velocities cause their share of risks and unnecessary costs.

90% (mean = 76.9 MPH) produced significantly faster pitch velocities than 110% (mean = 75.8 MPH) 100% (mean = 76.1 MPH).
In the [15 dB, 40 dB] interval, the measured velocities for both PRT schemes are sufficiently accurate.
Parts made at the longer fill times may be too short to evaluate properly, so you may have to redo those velocities at a stroke cutoff or position transfer that makes a larger part, but one that is still short.
The traction tractor used the gears L3 and L4, which corresponded to the theoretical velocities of 4.8 and 6.8 km [h.sup.-1] respectively, at the rotation of 2000 rpm, with the "turtle" function activated in the multi-torque system, which allows increasing or decreasing the velocity without the need to stop the tractor or engage the clutch.
Consequently, models should include parameters that are more easily obtained in the field to achieve the equivalent log velocity from living tree velocities.
Air was assumed to be as an incompressible fluid, considering the relatively low velocities. If M < 0.2 to 0.3 and the flow is (quasi) steady and isothermal, compressibility effects will be small and a simplified incompressible flow model can be used, as explained by Rathakrishnan (2013).
According to previous statements, the knowledge about critical velocities for an infinite Timoshenko beam under a moving load is still not completely clear.
The vertical velocities of fully developed flow with rigid vegetation were measured.
