Some text shows in the upper-left corner of the drawing.

There is a small circle below the triangle, which I will refer to as a pseudo-text marker . I will explain the purpose of the pseudo-text marker later.

Although the dimensions of your digitizer tablet will probably be different than mine, the overall layout of the shapes in your SVG file should bevery similar to mine.


In this section, I will provide instructions and explain the steps that you and your assistant will need to take in order to create your own small-scaledemonstration of the IVEO System .

Acquire a USB digitizer tablet

I put this instruction at the beginning of the list because without a USB digitizer tablet (or something to suitably replace the touchpad) , there can be no demonstration. Assuming that you don't have such a tablet, you should check with your friends, take a look on Ebay, etc.

(I will point out, however, that if you have low vision but can still see the computer screen and can use a mouse, you may be able to create this demonstrationwithout the need for a digitizer tablet.)

The brand and size of the tablet isn't terribly important, although the larger the tablet, the closer your small-scale demonstration will come torepresenting the real thing.

It is critical that the tablet connects to the computer via a USB port. It is also critical that the operation of the tabletemulates a mouse. By this, I mean that when you touch the tactile image on the tablet in a given location, the effect must be the same as if you were to use a mouse and click the corresponding location on the image on the screen.

Some tablets work only with a stylus, some work from either a finger touch or a stylus, and possibly some only work from a finger touch. Once again,this isn't too important, but the use of a tablet that works from a finger touch will be closer to the real thing than one that requires a stylus. (Mine requires a stylus.)

Create the SVG file

Once you have acquired your digitizer tablet and you know the dimensions of the active area on your tablet, it is time to create an SVG file that you canuse for testing.

Copy the Java code from Listing 2 into a text file with the name Svg23.java . Make the changes shown in Figure 1 to replace the dimensions of my tablet with the dimensions of your tablet. Note that dimensions are in inches.

Copy the text from Listing 3 into a text file with the name Svg23.bat .

Using the two files listed above, along with the instructions in the module titled If You Can Imagine T, You Can Draw It using SVG , and Listing 26 here ) , compile and run the program named Svg23.java , producing an output file named Svg23.svg .

Install Inkscape

This would be a good time for you to download and install the Inkscape program. You will be needing it shortly so that your assistant can

  • create a mirror image of the image in the SVG file, and
  • print the mirror image for manual embossing.

The Inkscape program is a relatively complex program, and an inexperienced user could easily damage or modify an SVG file. Therefore, the instructions inthis section should be performed using a copy of the file named Svg23.svg .

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

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
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
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

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?
