In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- The tip has a microporosity of less than or equal to 0.22 microns.
- One micron is 1 millionth of a meter, and chips with narrower gaps between transistors can perform more functions faster.
- Most fluid inclusions are small, only a few microns to tens of microns in diameter, but large inclusions visible to the naked eye are known.
- A nanometer is one-thousandth of a micron, which is one millionth of a meter.
- The price differential between broader micron wools, used for carpets, and the finer microns, used for luxury clothing, is returning to normal.
- To make fibers up to tens of microns across, scientists must align hundreds of the nanotubes into bundles.
- Each ring - composed of polymer chains abandoned as the solvent receded - is several nanometers high and several microns wide.
- Their lengths vary greatly in a population, with the most common length being about a micron.
- At present, inkjet nozzles can achieve resolutions of about 25 microns, compared to the latest die size of 0.13 microns, using silicon.
- Most of these creatures are quite small; from less than a micron in diameter to a few centimeters.
- While microscopic, the particles are large enough to be measured in microns, or millionths of a meter.
- Plastic shopping bags are currently about 15 microns thick (a micron is a thousandth of a millimetre).
- Nanowires are crystals only a few nanometers in diameter but up to several microns in length.
- Banning carry bags less than 20 microns or five microns doesn't quite matter because these bags are recyclable.
- The bubbles then expand to a much larger size, about 6,000 microns, or millionths of a meter - large enough to be seen with the unaided eye.
- Primary fuel filters, once designed to remove 150-micron particles, are now rated for 10 microns.
- There's a thousand microns in a millimetre for reference there.
- The human eye can only see objects as small as about 40 microns, but most oil contaminants are about 5 microns.
- They used computers to design the complex branching of the veins and arteries that ranged from 10 microns to 3 millimetres wide.
- The reactors range in diameter from about 400 to 60 microns, or millionths of a meter.
