electro-, electr-, electri-
(Greek > Latin: electric, electricity; from amber, resembling amber, generated from amber which when rubbed vigorously [as by friction], produced the effect of static electricity)
Electronics in our lives consists of numerous tools
Equipment which we use everyday relies on electronics to function including calculators, car controls, cameras, washing machines, medical scanners, mobile telephones, radar systems, computers; as well as many other applications or devices which are listed in this unit.
2. To produce (shaped objects) with the electrolytic deposition of metal on a mold.
2. Producing or reproducing (an object) with electrodeposition on a mold.
3. A procedure that produces, or reproduces, objects made of metal with a technique that is essentially precision electroplating.
The metal is deposited onto a mandrel or a former of what is the preferred shape to a desired thickness, followed by the removal of the mandrel to produce a free standing metal object.
This process is often used to produce precise optical elements, and solid-state electronic devices (integrated circuit boards, computer chips); as well as, the production of flat or perforated metal sheets, seamless perforated metal tubes, and metal bellows.
Almost any metal or alloy which can be electroplated can also be used for electroforming.
With the aid of electricity, the zinc is transferred onto the articles.
Guiding streams of air keep the charged paint particles in a narrow beam which keeps over spraying to a minimum.
Electrogasdynamics is a procedure for generating electricity. Small particles of dust, smoke, fog, etc are charged in a low-voltage region and then transported by a gas stream to a high-voltage region, where the charges are removed.
Work is done on the particles in moving them against the electric field and electricity is generated.
2. A test in which the electrical current generated by the muscles of the stomach are sensed and recorded in a manner very similar to that of an electrocardiogram of the heart.
An electrogastrogram is performed by taping electrodes to the skin on the upper abdomen over the stomach.
Recordings from the muscles are stored and analyzed by a computer and the electrogastrogram is performed in order to diagnose motility disorders of the stomach, conditions which prevent the muscles of the stomach from working normally.
2. A graphic recording of the change in electrical potential associated with gastric secretion and movement.
2. The process of recording and analyzing the electrical activity of the stomach.
2. The creation of electricity; especially, by living organisms.
2. Referring to a physiological process that generates a significant current which directly contributes to a cell membrane potential or an electric potential (possible electric tension or pressure) that exists on two sides of a membrane or across the wall of a cell.
3. Descriptive of a substance that contributes to an electrical potential across a membrane. 4. A reference to a procedure; such as, the pumping of ions across a membrane, in which a net charge is transferred, so that an electrical field is set up unless the charge can be dissipated by another process.
