Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
Admittance and impedance (as a combined concept).
- ‘The children were examined at two and four weeks and were evaluated using acoustic immittance and pneumatic otoscopy based on a previously designed algorithm.’
- ‘The Pattern option can be used only in conjunction with two-terminal immittances, i.e. impedance and admittance elements such as resistors, conductances, capacitors, and inductors.’
- ‘For screening purposes, acoustic immittance is intended to monitor each student's middle ear status.’
- ‘The performance of the proposed floating immittance is demonstrated on a fifth order elliptic filter.’
- ‘Since both networks are simply just pairs of coupled D transmission lines, the derivation of the constraints on the junction immittances is familiar.’
1950s: blend of impedance and admittance.
