Flag 2

Flag 2
Here we have the second of the two most dominant flags on the silk. Let's note a few key details about the flag: it includes a red cross bordered with white on a blue background,with another tilted cross (or X) across it. Since we have already explored some print resources,let's look for more resources online.

Let's perform a basic search on line for "flags of the world"; any search engine will do. The first link to come up looks promising:

World Flag Database: (External Link)

Visit the site and select the search option.

Now we are presented with a truly unique kind of search page. The problem of having to search for images rather than for words has been solvedby this site in a very creative manner, as you can see. The options are pretty general, so you can search for the same image in a variety of ways. We havechosen the following:

Searching for flags with cross, red, and blue.
The results bring up more questions than answers, however. There seems to be a variety of applications for the motif of our flag and in a number ofplaces.
Sample flags with our patterns
But there are a few that seem to be a close match.

Selecting the image entitled United Kingdom provides us with the following information.

Information about the United Kingdom from World Flag Database, (External Link)
A little short of what we have found in other resources. But we can take this information and perform a new search for more extensive information. Let'senter "flag united kingdom" into Google to see what we get.
History of Flag of United Kingdom from Flagspot.net (External Link)
Here we are, the flag and its history. The page on the flag's history tells us that the "Modern flag" of the United Kingdom was adopted in 1801.
Of course, when we are using online sources, we need to make sure that they are credible. By visiting the site home page, we find that flagspot.net is a member of the officialorganization for the study of flags (called vexillology) and that there is an editorial staff that maintains the pages, so we can probably trust this information.

Flag 3

Flag 3
We note that flag three includes green, white, and red stripes. Within the white field is whatappears to be a white cross on a red shield (?) topped with a yellow or gold crown of some sort. Rather than browse through pages and pages of illustration plates, let's see what the World Flag Database can tell us about this combination of colors and bars. First we search for vertical stripes with white or grey, red, and any green.

We find a few options, most having to do with Italy, but none is an exact match. For instance

National Flag of Italy
Let's take the information we have gathered from this source and use it to explore other sources.

Our most recent publication, Whitney Smith, presents us with the following image of Italian flags that is close to ours but missing a few important elements.

Flag of Kingdom of Italy, 1848-1946, Smith
We also find this description of the flag's history:
"On 23 March 1848 King Charles Albert of Sardinia ordered his troops about to go to war with the Austrian forces who occupied northern Italy, to carry the Italian Tri-color. Inactual practice many variations appeared, but officially the center of the white stripe was to bear the red shield and white cross of the House of Savoy, surrounded by a blue border. Thesame model on 15 April 1848 replaced the former Sardinian civil ensign and, with the crown above the shield, also became the war ensign. Subsequently, civil and military regulationswere issued dealing with certain details of the usage and design of this flag."
>Although we find no crown over our ensign, we find it described in the notes. Let's try Hulme's work to find out more.

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?
is it a question of log
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help

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
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?
