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. The potential developed by cells as a result of metabolic activity and circuited (path for electrical current to flow) through surrounding tissue.
A gap junction is an intercellular network of protein channels that facilitates the cell-to-cell passage of ions, hormones, and neurotransmitters.
2. A change in the condition of a nerve or a muscle during the passage of a current of electricity.
3. The altered electrical state of an excitable body cell when a constant electric current is passed through it; for example, the changes in membrane potential of excitable cells that cause a passive change in potential at every other point on the body's cell membrane.
4. The transient change of irritability in a nerve or a muscle during the passage of a current of electricity.
2. A bodily orientation in relation to an electric current.
3. A curvature of sessile (permanently attached) organisms toward or away from an electrical current stimulus.
It is used for long press operations.2. A reference to a duplicate printing surface prepared by making a mold of the type page or halftone plate, then by suspending this mold in a bath of copper sulfate and sulfuric acid so that, by electrolytic action, a thin shell of copper is deposited on it, and finally the pouring of molten type metal into this shell in order to strengthen it for use on a printing press.
3. A duplicate of a block of type or engraving made by electroplating a wax, lead, or plastic mold of the original or an item that has been printed from an electrotype.
Newspapers that use it can publish simultaneously in many cities.
2. The process of making an electrotype or the art or process of electrotyping something by employing, or producing by, the process of electolytic deposition; such as, a galvano-plastic copy of a medal, etc.
