Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
Relating to the magnetic and mechanical properties of a rotating charged particle.
- ‘Deuterium is a relatively insensitive nucleus because it has a low gyromagnetic ratio and the spectral intensity is generally spread over an extremely wide frequency range due to the quadrupole interaction.’
- ‘The classical gyromagnetic ratio of an orbiting or a rotating electron is defined as the ratio of the magnetic moment to the angular momentum.’
- ‘For a Kerr-Newman black hole (and for many other charged solutions in general relativity) the gyromagnetic ratio is exactly 2.’
- ‘Gyromagnetic resonance spectrometers essentially comprise a high-frequency generator supplying a circuit which concentrates the electromagnetic energy on a specimen, the latter being arranged in a continuous magnetic polarization field.’
- ‘Where [gamma] is the gyromagnetic ratio of protons, g is the gradient strength, [delta] is the gradient pulse length, and T is the time between the gradient pulses sandwiching the 180 [degrees] pulses.’
