General Discussion

Displaying 3D data can be fairly difficult

One of the more difficult aspects of engineering and scientific computing is displaying three-dimensional (3D) surfaces in ways that are meaningful to persons who need to view and to analyze those surfaces. The basic problem isthat it is necessary to display the 3D surface on a 2D media, such as a computer screen.

(At least that was true before the advent of 3D printers. However, as of October 2015, a 3D printer is not readily available for routine use by most people.)

Therefore, some compromise is always required.

Different approaches are available

Various approaches have been devised for accomplishing this objective including:

A 3D plotting program

I will provide and explain a program in this module that makes it very easy to display a 3D surface as a Grayscale plot, a Color Shift plot, or a ColorContour plot. The program supports six different plotting formats. Three of those plotting formats are illustrated in Figure 1 .

(The images shown in Figure 1 are different views of the wave-number spectrum resulting from performing a 2D Fourier Transform on a box in thespace domain. The use of 2D Fourier Transforms will be the main topic of a future module.)

Figure 1. 3D views of a wave-number spectrum.
Missing Figure.

Figure 1 shows the same 3D surface plotted using three different plotting formats. Going from left to right, Figure 1 shows:

  • Grayscale plot
  • Color Shift plot
  • Color Contour plot

Grayscale plot

The plot on the left in Figure 1 is the old standby method in which the elevation of each point on the surface is represented by a shade of gray withthe highest elevation being white and the lowest elevation being black.

Questions & Answers

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.

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.

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