Pre Algebra Dividing Decimals
In this lesson, students learn to divide a decimal by a decimal by first
multiplying both decimals by the power of 10 that changes the second
decimal to a whole number. For example, to divide 0.16 by 0.8, first
multiply both decimals by 10, to get 1.6 8. Next, divide the decimal by
the whole number in the same way that one would divide a whole number by
a whole number (using long division). However, at the end of the
problem, the decimal point is brought s

Anisotropic thermal conductivity in quartz: parallel to c-axis section
A section of quartz cut parallel to the c-axis being heated from a point at its centre. An ellipse shows that the thermal conductivity in this plane is direction-dependent. From TLP: Introduction to Anisotropy, http://www.msm.cam.ac.uk/doitpoms/tlplib/anisotropy/thermal.php

Anisotropic dielectric permittivity: tetragonal-cubic phase transition in barium titanate
A thin section of barium titanate is viewed between crossed-polars, Initially, the sample is below the transition temperature, and since the domains of the anisotropic tetragonal phase exhibit birefringence, it is brightly coloured when viewed between crossed-polars. When the sample reaches the transition temperature, the isotropic cubic phase forms, which appears black.
