The only new code in Listing 1 is the fifth line, which declares that afile named Asg.js contains JavaScript code that may be called by JavaScript code in the HTML file. Otherwise, the code in Listing 1 simply creates a JavaScript object and displays its contents. You have seen codelike that before.

Call a function named objToStr

The second statement in Listing 2 is new to this module. This statement calls a JavaScript function named objToStr passing the JavaScript object as a parameter.

Listing 2 . Call a function named objToStr.
document.write("<br/>Transform JavaScript object " + "into a JSON string.");var jsonstring = objToStr(obj01);

When the JavaScript interpreter encounters this statement, it searches the current file ( Asg.htm ) for a function having that name. When it doesn't find the function in the current file, itsearches the file named Asg.js , which was declared in Listing 1 . It finds the function in that file (see Listing 5 ) and executes it.

The function named objToStr

The code in the function named objToStr is straightforward. You have seen code like this before. After announcing that it has been called,the objToStr function calls the JSON.stringify method to create and return a JSON string based on the contents of theJavaScript object.

Call a function named strToObj

Returning to the code in the file named Asg.htm , the third statement in Listing 3 calls a function named strToObj passing the JSON string as a parameter.

Listing 3 . Call a function named strToObj.
document.write( "<br/>Display JSON string " + jsonstring );document.write("<br/>Transform the JSON string " + "into a JavaScript object.");var obj02 = strToObj(jsonstring);

The function named strToObj is also shown in Listing 5 . The code in this function is also straightforward and you have seen codelike this before. The strToObj function calls the JSON.parse method to create and return a JavaScript object based on the contents of the JSON string.

Following that, the code in the file named Asg.htm simply displays the contents of the JavaScript object. You can view that code in Listing 4 .

Run the program

I encourage you to copy the code from Listing 4 and Listing 5 and execute it by opening the HTML file in your browser. Experiment with the code,making changes, and observing the results of your changes. Make certain that you can explain why your changes behave as they do.

20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul
hmm

The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world

after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments

can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
