The second of the conjugateâ€“modulus properties enables us to find reciprocals of complex numbers and to divide one complex number by another, as shown in the next example. As for real numbers, we cannot find a reciprocal of zero, nor divide any complex number by zero.

Now think about adding a negative number, by looking at the number line again. Suppose you start at 0. Since 0 + âˆ’3 is the same as âˆ’3, you would expect that adding âˆ’3 to 0 on the number line should take you to the point marked âˆ’3 on the number line. So, 0 + âˆ’3 = âˆ’3.

Suppose Thomas's piggy bank were empty and he added an IOU for Â£3 to it. The value of the piggy bank would be âˆ’3.

The collapse of socialism didn't deter the Marxists, who moved on to invent new rationales for their system. But David Gordon has caught up with them, and used the knife of the Austrian School to cut their theories to pieces. A masterful demonstration of philosophical technique. The book in particular addresses the arguments of the analytical Marxists: G.A. Cohen, Jon Elster, and John Roemer.

The application of site-directed mutagenesis (SDM) to the study of protein function has been illustrated with the enzyme lysozyme, as described previously. SDM is a very powerful technique in the study of protein function, allowing the experimenter to assess the importance of particular amino acid side-chains in a protein. It is most commonly used in the study of enzymes; however, it is also very useful in identifying key residues in proteinâ€“protein interactions. In this section, we will co

Gestational diabetes is diabetes that develops during pregnancy. There are no internationally agreed threshold blood glucose levels used to diagnose gestational diabetes. However, there is a trend towards using the IGT (impaired glucose tolerance) test criteria (see Section 4). Studies are ongoing to decide what threshold level is important i

Open-loop is the crudest way of controlling etch depth. It relies on ensuring that every aspect of the process that can affect the rate of progress of the etch is kept under tight control. This can add up to a sizeable list. Table 5 shows just some parameters that affect both wet and dry etching.

So what are the reasons for the continued growth in the use of polymers as shown in Figure 1? It cannot be raw material cost, since the source of synthetic polymers is crude oil or natural gas, prices of which have risen over the same period of time. The comparative prices of polymers are considerably greater than traditional ma

So far we have been considering aspects of Thugga without taking into account the chronology of the site and its monuments. The following table lists the public buildings and monuments of Thugga which are securely dated by inscriptions and gives the date (as near as possible) of construction along with an assessment of how African or Roman they are.

Reactivity is not spread evenly over a molecule; it tends to be concentrated at particular sites. The consequences of this idea are apparent in the chemistry of many elements. However, in organic chemistry, the idea has proved so valuable that it receives specific recognition through the concept of the functional group. Structure 6.1 shows the abbreviated structural formula of hexan-1-ol, an alcohol.

By using symbols, elements can be represented much more conveniently and much more briefly. This method of using symbols can be extended to compounds. You will now look further into this idea using a very familiar compound: water. Recall which atoms there are in a water molecule.
