They are like those little nooks of still water, which border a rapid stream, where we may see the straw and bubble riding quietly at anchor, or slowly revolving in their mimic harbor, undisturbed by the rush of the passing current
. Though many years have elapsed since I trod the drowsy shades of Sleepy Hollow, yet I question whether I should not still find the same trees and the same families vegetating in its sheltered bosom.
The party gradually drew together about the heap of ashes and the ends of smoking logs; while a dim flame in the centre of the ruin, which still found fuel to feed its lingering life, threw its pale light, flickering with the passing currents
of the air, around the circleâ€”now showing a face with eyes fixed in astonishment, and then glancing to another countenance, leaving the former shaded in the obscurity of night.
Objects on the ground, like steeples, trees, and the Earth itself, become positively charged -- creating an imbalance that nature seeks to remedy by passing current
between the two charges.
LCC-HVDC*1: A HVDC system with AC/DC converter using power semiconductor devices that requires the passing current
to be zero when off (a thyristor).
Then the passing current
through the triac is held in a conduction state.
Lounging nonchalantly as my rod dangled over the edge of the boat, I was lost for a word to describe the colour of a chessa as it streaks just below the surface, turning its body like a sail to catch the passing current
. There is something in that silvery flash, as light bounces off in all directions which seems to be more of a sound, than a colour.
"LEDs are very small solid-state devices that generate light by passing current
across layers of a semi-conductor material housed in a chip.
In electroacoustic music, this means the following scheme: I create a smoothly passing current
of sound (melody, regular pulse) and will disturb it with rustles, clatter, disruptions in "unexpected places", thus evoking deconstruction, destruction, unease, distracting of concentration, distance towards that which is heard.
Scientists created the magnetic field by passing current
through copper coils (shown).
MRAM that uses the "spin-torque-transfer" effect to reverse the direction of magnetization of an element by passing current
The specimens were heated by passing current
through the standard specimens using flexible conductors, and the temperature was recorded with a tungsten-rhenium thermocouple.
A book about the future published in 2008, with information preceding the publishing date, could well be considered out of date - or at worst in error - after a couple of years of passing current
While power supplies have typically used silicon transistors, silicon transistors suffer from some power loss, known as "on-state loss"(5) when passing current
, as well as considerable power loss when switching between on and off states, known as "switching loss"(6), such that transistor-related losses account for more than one-third (1/3) of all power loss that occurs in a power supply.
Van den Berg became the Ducks' all-time career leader in points with 186, passing current
UO assistant coach Jen Derby.
