Figure 1. Evolution of the shear elastic modulus of the stoichiometric 8-H:8-AA hydrogel. Fitting these data to Equation 1, the equilibrium modulus, G eq , is 30 kPa unswollen. After swelling, this value declines to ca. 10 kPa, which was previously reported. The data are the open squares and the fit is the solid line.
In a duct-flute such as the recorder, steady-state oscillations are controlled by two parameters, the blowing pressure and the frequency of the acoustic resonator. As in most feedback oscillators, the oscillation amplitude is determined by gain-saturation of the amplifier, and thus it cannot be controlled independently of blowing pressure and frequency… (More)
