Abnormal termination

While experiencing abnormal program termination isn't all that great, it is better than the alternative of using arrays whose boundaries aren't protected.Programming languages that don't protect the array boundaries simply overwrite other data in memory whenever the array boundaries are exceeded.

Attempt to access out of bounds element

The code in the for loop in the following fragment attempts to access the array element at the index value 5. That index value is out ofbounds of the array.

for(int j = 0;j<6;j++){ System.out.print(myArray[i][j]+ " "); }//end inner for loop

Because that index value is outside the boundaries of the array, an ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException is thrown. The exception isn't caught and handled by program code, so the program terminates abnormally at runtime.

This program also illustrates that it is usually better to use the length property of an array to control iterative loops than to use hard-coded limitvalues, which may be coded erroneously.

Back to Question 5

Answer 4

C. 1 1 1 1 1 1 2 3 4 51 3 5 7 9

Explanation 4

A two-dimensional array

This program illustrates how to create, populate, and process a two-dimensional array with three rows and five columns.

(As mentioned earlier, a Java programmer who understands the fine points of the language probably wouldn't call this a two-dimensional array. Rather,this is a one-dimensional array containing three elements. Each of those elements is a reference to a one-dimensional array containing five elements.That is the more general way to think of Java arrays.)

The following code fragment creates the array, using one of the acceptable formats discussed in Question 3 .

int myArray[][]; myArray = new int[3][5];

Populating the array

The next code fragment uses a pair of nested for loops to populate the elements in the array with values of type int .

for(int i=0;i<myArray.length;i++){ for(int j=0;j<myArray[0].length;j++){myArray[i][j]= i*j + 1; }//end innerfor loop }//end outer for loop

This is where the analogy of a two-dimensional array falls apart. It is much easier at thispoint to think in terms of a three-element primary array, each of whose elements contains a reference to a secondary array containing five elements. (Note that in Java, the secondary arrays don't all have to be of the same size. Hence, itis possible to create odd-shaped multi-dimensional arrays in Java.)

Using the length property

Pay special attention to the two chunks of code that use the length properties of the arrays to determine the number of iterations for each of the for loops.

The first chunk determines the number of elements in the primary array. In this case, the length property contains the value 3.

The second chunk determines the number of elements in the secondary array that is referred to by the contents of the element at index 0 in theprimary array. (Think carefully about what I just said.)

In this case, the length property of the secondary array contains the value 5.

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.
