- By incorporating nanowires as filaments in bigger superconducting wires, for example, more current could be carried without being destroyed by a magnetic field.
- Place it indoors, in a quiet room, and the smoke becomes a cloud of wispy filaments, swirling gently until they all blend into a screen of gray.
- Her fur was standing on end, like filaments of wire.
- An incandescent black light bulb is similar to a normal household light bulb, but it uses light filters to absorb the light from the heated filament.
- Tinted prints of Andy Warhol's inflated ‘silver clouds’ dangled on filaments in the first and second galleries.
- Lewis Latimer, the son of runaway slaves, became an electrical engineer and invented an inexpensive process for making light bulb filaments.
- It was as white and alive as the filament of a light bulb viewed close up.
- A strong, alternating current heats a resistive filament, causing it to emit electrons.
- For example, all three contract when a rise in calcium inside the muscle cell allows interaction between actin and myosin filaments.
- They use it to convert energy into movement, exerted against polar actin filaments.
- As he watched it burn he noticed how individual strands of the wood glowed white as they burned fiercely, and that convinced him that bamboo might be the best material to use for his light bulb filaments.
- The most important factors determining the heating of a filament to incandescence are thermal mass and electrical resistance of the filament.
- The style is enclosed in a tube formed by the five fused anthers and filaments.
- The tungsten filament of an incandescent light is an example of a wire under extreme conditions.
- On a transparent blue expanse, a swaddled figure lies in a passive curve, suspended in a heavenly hammock of spidery filaments, surrendered to the life of the mind.
- Smearing of pollen is facilitated by the fanning out of anthers borne at the ends of the filaments.
- It glimmers at barely 1800 degrees Fahrenheit, which is cooler than a light bulb filament.
- At the balloon stage of flowering, petals were peeled away and the swollen anthers were removed from the filaments by rubbing the open flower on wire mesh.
- Short and long stamens were measured from the base of the filament to the tip of the anthers.
- We determined the dissociation constants of our mutants for skeletal muscle actin using capped filaments.
- Regular incandescent light bulbs produce light by heating a small filament inside the bulb.
- The filaments in the lightbulbs we'd started manufacturing kept burning up.
- He used a carbon filament in an oxygen-free bulb.
- The inert gas prevents the wire filament inside the bulb from reacting chemically with oxygen and burning out quickly.
- In an incandescent bulb, the filament is made of a thin piece of tungsten metal, coiled to fit inside the bulb; if it were stretched out, it would measure about 6 feet long!
- It is like comparing a red-hot poker pulled from a fire with the filament in an electric light bulb: there is no doubt concerning which is the brighter.
- Her only connection to the world a tenuous filament of wires, tubes and intravenous needles.
- Unlike an incandescent bulb, no filament is needed.
- They are twisted masses of tiny filaments or fibers inside nerve cells.
- An incandescent light bulb contains a thin wire filament (usually tungsten) that glows hot when an electric current is run through it.
- The new lamp not only has the size and shape of a conventional filament bulb but also comes with a standard screw base and can therefore be fitted in any lamp or light socket.
- But unlike ordinary incandescent bulbs, they don't have a filament that will burn out, and they don't get especially hot.
- In these flowers, the anthers are attached to the petals by short filaments half way down the corolla tube.
- He had division of the terminal filament for a tethered spinal cord, which was thought to be the cause of his symptoms.
- In one experiment, the researchers formed the yarn into a lightbulb filament and found that its strength and conductivity increased after it heated up.
