Supplemental material

I also recommend that you study the other lessons in my extensive collection of online programming tutorials. You will find a consolidated index at www.DickBaldwin.com .

General background information

If you learn how to program using ActionScript 3, you will probably integrate large amounts of ActionScript code into your Flex projects to provide complexevent handling. In the meantime, it is possible to provide simple event handlers in Flex by embedding a very small amount of ActionScript code in your Flex code.I will illustrate and explain that capability in this lesson.


I encourage you to run the online version of the programs from this lesson before continuing.

Three Flex projects

I will present and explain three Flex projects in this lesson. The first project is named SliderChangeEvent01 . This project was first developed using Flex Builder 3 and later developed using the Flex 3 compiler and Flash Builder 4.The results were essentially the same in both cases. This project uses classes from the Flex 3 (mx) library exclusively. (The screen shots shown in Figure 4, Figure 5, and Figure 6 are from Flex Builder 3.)

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube

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?
