One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
One thousandth of a volt.
- ‘Moreover, that electrical potential, which ranges up to 10 millivolts, increases with flow speed.’
- ‘We developed a new method to determine the amplitude of flickers in terms of millivolts of depolarization.’
- ‘In reality, the output from the sensors on the combine are not grain yield and moisture content but only millivolts.’
- ‘These currents are largely produced by electrochemical reactions and fluid flow in the subsurface, and the measurable voltages can be up to several hundred millivolts.’
- ‘The researchers determined that an electric current of about 40 millivolts flows between the two alloys in each coin.’
- ‘When rock membranes form in the laboratory, they create a voltage of 600 millivolts as their thin walls separate the simulated hydrothermal and ocean solutions, which have different ion concentrations.’
- ‘Voltages up to several hundred millivolts can be applied before membrane breakdown’
- ‘It is usually on the order of several tens of millivolts and is relatively constant.’
- ‘Researchers at Ohio State University found that a pint (half a litre) of a cow's bacteria-infested rumen juice produced about 600 millivolts of electricity.’
- ‘The electrical activity detected by the electrocardiogram machine is measured in millivolts.’
- ‘A healthy cell contains between 70 and 90 millivolts of energy.’
- ‘In reality there will be some voltage, up to about 100 millivolts, because every circuit has some resistance.’
- ‘You can increase the clock-generator frequency up to 300MHz and the CPU voltage up to 140 millivolts above the default value.’
