A tuning fork is an acoustic resonator in the form of a two-pronged fork with the prongs (tines) formed from a U-shaped bar of elastic metal (usually
Wavelength of pressure waves
In an elastic medium with rigidity, a harmonic pressure wave oscillation is related to the amplitude of displacement, the distance along the axis of
Q factor (RLC circuits)
Is the peak energy stored in the circuit divided by the average energy dissipated in it per cycle at resonance, and is the inverse of fractional
Ripple factor (choke)
For the root mean square value of the ripple voltage, the calculation is more involved as the shape of the ripple waveform has a bearing on the result.
In chemical kinetics, the pre-exponential factor or A factor is the pre-exponential constant in the Arrhenius equation. Here named as Arrhenius number.
