THIS letter is intended to be provocative. A volt (or ampere) is denoted V (or A): a millivolt (or milliampere) mV (or mA): a microvolt (or microampere) µV (or µA). A farad is known as F, a microfarad as µF (though misguided people write it mfd. or mF., which, if anything, should mean millifarad): a micromicrofarad (10−12 farad) is µµF. A millihenry is mH, a microhenry µH. A gram is g., a milligram is mg., but some (and not the least worthy) biochemists use a symbol which few others understand… 
Experimental Demonstration that the Couple on a Bar Magnet depends on H, not B
IN the macroscopic theory of electromagnetism there are several systems of equations that are compatible with SI units1,2. Among these are two important ones in current use which differ in their
The Measurement of pH - Definition, Standards and Procedures REPORT OF THE WORKING PARTY ON pH
The definition of a “primary method of measurement” (1) has permitted a full consideration of the definition of primary standards for pH, determined by a primary method (cell without transference,
THE CRITERIA OF PURITY USED IN THE STUDY OF LARGE MOLECULES OF BIOLOGICAL ORIGIN
The limits, in weight and chemical stability, of the group of substances referred to as large molecules are discussed and the range is arbitrarily taken as from particles unresolvable by the

TLDR
The use of EC in combination to diets containing 10% DRB, have no positive effects in the performance of birds, but the enzyme phytase present in the complex showed its action, increasing the retention of phosphorus and ash percentage of tibia.
ANGULAR SPACE - TIME RELATIONS IN SOLAR RADIATION
The engineer relies greatly on Meteorological data for solar energy applications. In most case the available equipments indicate only the hourly or daily total irradiance on a flat horizontal

Respiratory exposure and potential dermal exposure to volatile organic compounds in nail salons : a pilot study
TLDR
Nail technicians are not at immediate health risk as the exposure in nail salons are well below recommended occupational exposure limits, and the dermal exposure showed strong significant correlations to the concordant chemical’s respiratory exposures.
The pure rotation Raman spectrum of 17O18O
The pure rotation Raman spectrum of 17O18O has been recorded photographically using laser excitation and a spectrograph with a reciprocal linear dispersion of 1.4 cm−1 mm−1 at 488.0 nm. The following
