Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
The volume occupied by a unit mass of a gas or vapour in its critical state.
- ‘When the volume occupied by the nucleating phase exceeds the so-called critical volume, fluctuations favor the formation of the new phase.’
- ‘For instance, two copies of CLN3 cause a smaller critical volume than one copy, and higher doses can decrease volume still further.’
- ‘The model demonstrates that the spherical cap solution is unstable at a contact-angle-dependent critical volume, reminiscent of the experimental findings.’
- ‘The contact angle dependence of the critical volume is quantitatively consistent with the experiments.’
- ‘The critical volume of intravasation before symptoms are exhibited is not predictable.’
