The modelling of traffic flow using methods and models from physics has a long history. In recent years especially cellular automata models have allowed for large-scale simulations of large traffic networks faster than real time. On the other hand, these systems are interesting for physicists since they allow to observe genuine nonequilibrium effects. Here the current status of cellular automata models for traffic flow is reviewed with special emphasis on nonequilibrium effects (e.g. phase transitions) induced by on- and off-ramps.
In this chapter you will learn: Explain the key components of the balance of payments, explain the growth in international trade activity over time, explain how international trade flows are influenced by economic factors and other factors, explain how international capital flows are influenced by country characteristics, introduce the agencies that facilitate the international flow of funds.
Electricity is an invisible force that is used to transfer
energy into heat, light, intelligence, or motion. Electricity
is explained in terms of electrical charge, potential differ-
ence (or voltage), electrical charge flow (or current), and
resistance to current flow. Figure 1-1 graphically illus-
trates electron flow through a conductor by comparing it
with water flow through a pipe. The normal unit of current
measurement is the ampere, whereas the normal unit of
voltage measurement is the volt. The unit of opposition to
current flow, or resistance, is the ohm...

Heat transfer has emerged as a central discipline in contemporary engineering science.
The research activity of a few decades ago—the material reviewed in the first
handbooks—has distilled itself into textbook concepts and results. Heat transfer has
become not only a self-standing discipline in the current literature and engineering
curricula, but also an indispensable discipline at the interface with other pivotal and
This is a book for businesspeople. All decisions in a business
organization are made in accordance with how they will affect
the organization’s financial performance and future
financial health. Whether your background is in marketing, manufacturing,
distribution, research and development, or the current
technologies, you need financial knowledge and skills if you are to
really understand your company’s decision-making, financial, and
overall management processes.
For several years, it has been a goal of mine to write a book on
. While there are many good architectural books in circulation,
they are either limited in scope or lack sufficient detail to be actionable.
Early in my career, I found it difficult to translate the principles of these
books into a logical flow of events that detail the purpose of the activities,
the consumers of the outputs, and finally the control mechanisms for the
enterprise. It is my intention to make these clear and easily referenced in
An electric shock is the pathophysiological effect of an electric current through the
Its passage affects essentially the muscular, circulatory and respiratory functions and
sometimes results in serious burns. The degree of danger for the victim is a function
of the magnitude of the current, the parts of the body through which the current
passes, and the duration of current flow.
Serial Connection And Parallel Connection
Figure 1 shows the most basic and commonly used circuits for driving light-emitting diodes. In Figure 1(A), a constant voltage source (VCC ) is connected through a current limiting resistor (R) to an LED so that it is supplied with forward current (IF). The IF current flowing through the LED is expressed as IF = (V CC - VF)/R, providing a radiant flux proportional to the IF. The forward voltage (V F) of the LED is dependent on the value of IF, but it is approximated by a constant voltage when setting R. Figures 1(B) and...
The resistor is an electrical device whose primary function is to introduce resistance to the flow of electric
current. The magnitude of opposition to the flow of current is called the resistance of the resistor. A larger
resistance value indicates a greater opposition to current flow.
The resistance is measured in ohms. An ohm is the resistance that arises when a current of one ampere is
passed through a resistor subjected to one volt across its terminals.
AC motors convert AC electrical energy to Mechanical energy. AC motors:
the armature of rotor is a magnet (different to DC motors).
the stator is formed by electromagnets (like in DC motors). Effects of AC Supply on Magnetic Poles Consider the rotor to be a permanent magnet.
Current flowing through conductors energize the magnets and develop N and S poles.
The strength of electromagnets depends on current.
First half cycle current flows in one direction.
Second half cycle it flows in opposite direction...
A diode is a semiconductor device which allows current to flow through it in only one direction. Although a transistor is also a semiconductor device, it does not operate the way a diode does. A diode is specifically made to allow current to flow through it in only one direction.
Physically, diodes are formed by the interface between two regions of oppositely doped semiconductor (i.e., pn junction) and are thus, structurally, the simplest semiconductor devices used in electronics. 1. Ideal Diode
An ideal diode is a two-terminal device defined by the following non-linear (currentvoltage) iv-characteristic: i

CMOS interview questions.
1/ What is latch up?
Latch-up pertains to a failure mechanism wherein a parasitic thyristor (such as a parasitic silicon controlled rectifier, or SCR) is inadvertently created within a circuit, causing a high amount of current to continuously flow through it once it is accidentally triggered or turned on. Depending on the circuits involved, the amount of current flow produced by this mechanism can be large enough to result in permanent destruction of the device due to electrical overstress (EOS)...

Current Flow in an Electrochemical Cell:
Thermodynamic arguments permit the feasibility of overall cell reactions to be predicted, but give no information on rates. To understand the latter it is necessary to consider the effects on various parts of the cell of forcing the cell voltage to assume a value different from that of the equilibrium potential Eeq (V) or electromotive force (emf). In the example of Figure 1, the cell contains hydrochloric acid as aqueous electrolyte and it divides into two compartments by a semipermeable membrane.
