(Later we will see another way to accomplish this that requires less typing effort.)

The exception

The one exception to the rule is the use of classes in the java.lang package, (such as Boolean , Class , and Double ) . Your source code can refer to classes in the java.lang package without the requirement to provide a fully-qualified class name.

An ArrayList object

Now back to the use of the object previously instantiated from the class named ArrayList . This is the kind of object that is often referred to as a container.

(A container in this sense is an object that is used to store references to other objects.)

Many methods available

An object of the ArrayList class provides a variety of methods that can be used to store object references and to fetch the references that it contains.

The add method

One of those methods is the method named add .

The following code fragment instantiates three objects of the String class, and stores them in the ArrayList object instantiated earlier.

(Note that since the initial capacity of the ArrayList object was adequate to store only a single reference, the following code causes the object toautomatically increase its capacity to at least three.)

ref.add("ABC "); ref.add("DEF ");ref.add("GHI");

The get() method

The references stored in an object of the ArrayList class can be fetched by calling the get method on a reference to the object passing a parameter of type int .

The code in the following fragment calls the get method to fetch the references stored in index locations 0, 1, and 2. These references are passed to the println method, where the contents of the String objects referred to by those references are concatenated and displayed on the computerscreen.

System.out.println( (String)ref.get(0) +(String)ref.get(1) + (String)ref.get(2));

The output

This results in the following being displayed:



The above discussion gave you a preview into the use of containers in general, and the ArrayList container in particular.

However, the primary purpose of this program was to help you to understand the use of packages in Java.

The ArrayList class was simply used as an example of a class file that is stored in a standard Java package.

Back to Question 3

Answer 2

D. Joe Joe true

Explanation 2

Two String objects with identical contents

As in Question 1 , the program instantiates two String objects containing identical character strings, as shown in the following codefragment.

char[] anArray = {'J','o','e'};String Str1 = new String(anArray); String Str2 = new String(anArray);

Compare objects for equality

Also, as in Question 1 , this program compares the two objects for equality and displays the result as shown by the call to the equals method in the following fragment.

System.out.println( Str1 + " " + Str2 + " " +Str1.equals(Str2));

Compare using overridden equals method

The == operator is not used to compare the two objects in this program. Instead, the objects are compared using an overridden version of the equals method. In this case, the equals method returns true, indicating that the objects are of the same type and contain thesame data values.

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.

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
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.
