Transmission Fluid - Your car will rely on many things especially fluids to keep all the mechanical parts well lubricated and working without using much heat on high-friction functions. Transmission fluid is one of the most important fluids in the car. Significance The transmission system uses clutch, actuating shafts and all the gear connections. Each engine gear will have a limit, which is defined by the red line that is always defined by the revolutions per minute. When the gear of your vehicle reaches the limit, it has to stop spinning and let another gear power the vehicle....   [tags: Automobiles] 1058 words

Energy Transmission - In energy systems where the energy-collection process in an energy-material is needed as a step physically separated from the Processing Unit, the transportation of the energy-material that contains the energy is required. In the case of biomass-based energy systems, this step encompasses all the infra-structure associated with the logistics of supplying biomass to the Processing Unit: machines, roads, pipes, etc. Although the energy that flows through this stage is tied to the amount of raw material demanded by the processing plant, its cost structure may vary freely, dependent upon the type of transportation technology adopted (i.e.: pipelines, trucks, railroads), distances, daily demand of the processing unit, operation time, and physical characteristics of the raw material (as density)....   [tags: Energy] 869 words

Transmission of the Food Culture - In 1943, Abraham Maslow proposed a theory called “Maslow’s hierarchy of needs” in psychology field. Food, placed at the bottom level of the hierarchy, represents one of the primary human physiological needs for survival. In my point of view, food is a carrier that holds all the meanings from other levels and passes on along with the transmission of cultural. In Sheila Ferguson, Martha Stewart and Julia Child’s books, it seems that they all state the cuisine of a particular type of food as while as the enjoyment....   [tags: Culture ]

The True Nature of Head Lice Transmission - Summary: This study aimed to discover the true nature of head lice transmission. Prior to this paper there were two proposed mechanisms for transmission. These mechanisms were either head-to-head transfer or via fomite. Transmission was tested simulating possible scenarios lice could be transferred. This included speed, angle and orientation of louse transferring objects, such as hair. The researchers concluded that a slow relationship between hairs must be maintained along with proper orientation in order to permit transmission....   [tags: Health Care]

Cryptosporidium Parvum: Transmission and Infection - Cryptosporidium Parvum: Transmission and Infection Cryptosporidium parvum is a protozoan intestinal parasite causing a short-term enteric illness in individuals with functioning immune systems, and can cause a potentially fatal infection in immunosuppressed individuals. Because of C. parvum’s resistance to many of the procedures used to process drinking water and food, and the parasite’s extremely high fecundity, the potential for a large scale outbreak is very high.

The Principles and Limitations of Transmission and Scanning Electron Microscopes - The Principles and Limitations of Transmission and Scanning Electron Microscopes Introduction Microscopy has a major role in cytology.From the very beginning researchers have tried to develop ways of looking directly at living cells.This examination has revealed much about the morphology of cells and tissues.In recent years,development in microscopes,dyes,staining and preparatory techniques have helped reveal even more about the structure and function of cells.Microscopes have a certain magnification and resolving power.In any microscope the the resolving power is more important than the magnification.The resolving power of a microscope is the least distance between two objects where the microscope can still distinguish the objects as being separate.It is a measure of detail that can be seen.A microscope with a high resolving power enables us to view images with a high resolution.With a low resolution they would be viewed as one object.Microscopes with a high magnification are only able to increase the size of the object that is being viewed.The resolution will be the same.(ie the object will still lack clarity and appear fuzzy).The two types of microscopes are electron and light microscopes....   [tags: Papers] 850 words

The suspected causal agent of these diseases is the prion—a proteinaceous infectious particle. Designated as PrPSC, this infectious protein is unique in that it does not contain nucleic acid, which is different from a virus, yet has the capability of replication and being transmitted to other hosts. This capability of transmission poses a major problem in that the detection of the disease caused by this prion while the individual is in the incubation phase is not currently possible....   [tags: essays research papers] 2754 words
