Straightforward code

The code in Listing 1 is straightforward. It simply declares a number of instance variables, most of which become properties of the object. Listing 1 also defines a constructor that receives and saves values for many of thoseproperties.

The remaining code in Sprite01

If you examine the remaining code in Listing 11 , you will see that it consists of simple property accessor methods along withsome methods that control the behavior of an object of the class. I will explain those behavioral methods when I use them later in this and the next two modules.

The class named Slick0200

Will discuss in fragments

A complete listing of the program named Slick0200 is provided in Listing 10 . I will break the program down and explain it in fragments.

Beginning of the class named Slick0200

The class named Slick0200, down through the main method is shown in Listing 2 .

Listing 2 . Beginning of the class named Slick0200.
public class Slick0200 extends BasicGame{//Store references to Sprite01 objects here. Sprite01[]sprites = new Sprite01[1000];//Populate this with a ladybug image later.Image image = null;//Populate these variables with the background // image along with the width and height of the// image later. Image background = null;float backgroundWidth; float backgroundHeight;//This object produces random float values for a// variety of purposes. Random random = new Random();//Frame rate we would like to see and maximum frame// rate we will allow. int targetFPS = 60;//----------------------------------------------------// public Slick0200(){//constructor//Set the title super("Slick0200, baldwin");}//end constructor //----------------------------------------------------//public static void main(String[] args)throws SlickException{ AppGameContainer app = new AppGameContainer(new Slick0200(),414,307,false); app.start();}//end main

Everything in Listing 2 is completely straightforward and should not require an explanation beyond the embedded comments.

The init method

The init method begins in Listing 3 .

Listing 3 . Beginning of the init method.
public void init(GameContainer gc) throws SlickException {//Create and save the background image object. Also // compute and save the width and height of the image.background = new Image("background.jpg"); backgroundWidth = background.getWidth();backgroundHeight = background.getHeight(); //Create and save an Image object of a ladybug. The// sprites will wear this image image = new Image("ladybug.png");

There is also nothing new in Listing 3 . Therefore, the embedded comments should suffice to explain the code.

Populate the array

Listing 4 uses a for loop to populate the array object referred to by the variable named sprites that was declared in Listing 2 . The array object is populated with references to objects of the class Sprite01 .

Listing 4 . Populate the array.
//Populate the array with references to objects of // the Sprite01 class.for(int cnt = 0;cnt<sprites.length;cnt++){ sprites[cnt]= new Sprite01( image,//ladybug imagebackgroundWidth/2.0f,//initial position backgroundHeight/2.0f,//initial position(random.nextFloat()>0.5) ? 1f : -1f,//direction (random.nextFloat()>0.5) ? 1f : -1f,//direction 0.1f+random.nextFloat()*2.0f,//step size0.1f+random.nextFloat()*2.0f,//step size random.nextFloat()*0.15f,//scalenew Color(random.nextFloat(),//color filter random.nextFloat(),random.nextFloat())); }//end for loopgc.setTargetFrameRate(targetFPS);//set frame rate }//end init

sure. what is your question?
ninjadapaul
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

is it a question of log

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
Prasenjit
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
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic 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?
