For calculations in medicine, intravenous medicine injections calculations,
medical math, Lupco's theories.
D= Desired Dosage
H= Dosage (rate) Strength Available
Q= Volume in ml/cc
If D over H times Q = X (volume Desired in ml, U, cc)
Then Q ml/cc = D over Q
X ml/hr = DxQ over H For Different Infusion Sets
Energy (kWh) A measure of electricity used. One kilowatt-hour lights
100 watt bulb of ten hours or operates a 1000 watt appliance,
such as a hair dryer, iron - for one hour.
To convert mph to km/h multiply mph x 1.609
To convert km/h to mph multiply hm/h x 0.6214
Farenheit = (Cx1.8) + 32; Celsius = (F-32) : 1.8
-------------------------Electronics Math--------------------------
Some Time ago I had a math problem that had to deal with Voltage,
I believe it had to do with R1, R2, R3, then Rt energy = something,
then there was V1, V2, V3.
V = IxR what is this formula for? (Lupco Problem 3/1996)
I remember one problem long time ago... but put some light on this, what it
means and how many R's can there be... What is V of t ? Vt = Voltage Transformer
Vt=4%, R1=4, R2=12; V=4/16 x 48 V1=12 V2=36
What is this formula for: PC, Rt=RxR2/R+R2 ?

Ohm's Law Formulas:
E= I x R
Abbreviations:
E = voltage across the resistor (Volts)
I = current through the resistor (Amperes)
R = resistance value of the resistor (Ohms)
V = Voltage
Situation:
Given the below values for current and resistance for a resistor,
determine the amount of voltage dropped across resistor.
Current - A flow of electricity through a conductor.
Example:
You know that 10 mA flows through a certain 100 W resistance. Ma = Milliamp,
1/1000th of an amp. Amp/Ah = Ampere hour = is the amount of energy charge
in a battery that will allow one ampere of current to flow for one hour.
What is the voltage drop across the resistor?

Sciences:
Calculus - The branch of mathematics that is concerned with limits and
with the differentiation of functions. (and graph use is common)
Integers - Numbers without decimal, 0, 1, 50. Integer can be less than,
equal to, or greater than zero. Integers are Whole numbers.
Must be one or more units. Negative or positive. Opposite to fractions. (Part of a number)
Natural Numbers - Usually a number without a zero in its equation/function.
Functions - Relation such that each element of a set is associated with
unique element of another. Fundamental in every branch of mathematics
and quantitative science. (involving measurement of quantity and amount)
Chemistry - The science of nature & growth of the natural science dealing
with the composition of substances, their property and reaction.
Physics - The science of mathematics, energy and their interaction.
Geology - Study of earth and its layers and its creation history.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Grammar/Terms:
Noun - A word that can be used to refer to a person, place or a thing.
Pronoun - A word that can substitute for a noun phrase. He for Lary.
Verb - Expresses existence, action or occurence.
Present tense, past tense, future tense.
Adverb - Adverb is often form of adjective... very, quickly, beautifully.
It's a word that adds information to a verb.
Adjective - A word that expresses an attribute of something.
Self-confidence is no Endearing property.
Proverb - A condensed but memorable saying embodying some important fact
of experience that is taken true and may pass on within generations.
Syntax - The grammatical arrangements of words in sentences.
Oxymoron - A combination of contradictory or incongruous words. (cruel justice)
(oxymoronic - adjective, oxymoranically - adverb)
Simile - A figure of speech comparing 2 unlike things that is ofen
introduced by like or as (as in cheeks like roses or red).
Metaphor - A figure of speech in which a word or phrase literally denoting
one kind of object or idea is used in place of another to suggest a likeness
or analogy between them (allegoricallyames an independent
and unitary reality.
b: The conception that objects of sense perception or cognition exist
independently.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Political/Philosophical:
Hypocrytical - Professing feelings, beliefs or virtues one does not have.
To denounce another for carrying out some action whilst carrying out the
same action oneself and then critisizing the others for it, like Bush's. (Hypocrisy)
Cynycism - Believing the worse of human nature and motives.
Ironic - Implies an attempt to be amusing or provocative by saying usually
the opposite of what is meant. (made the ironic observation that the
government could always be trusted and always is trusted is a paradox)
Sarcastic - Implies an intentional inflicting of pain by deriding, taunting,
or ridiculing. (a critic famous for his sarcastic remaks)
Realpolitik - Practical politics; often, cynically, reliance upon armed
strength for gaining one's ends in national or international affairs,
ignoring what other thinks and the reality of things but only praising
your own politics and ideas as the only correct ones.
Maxim/Axiom- A saying that is widely accepted on its own merits.
In Logic, a proposition that is not susceptible of proof or disproof;
its truth is assumed to be self-evident. Self given, can not be contradicted
except for ignorance and modern relativism.
Axiomatic truth - self evident, no need for proof or arguments.
Axiom - A statement of a self evident truth. (Socrates said... Know yourself
and unexamined life is not worht living, Fulton Sheen said... Life is worth living)
Maxim - A general truth or a rule of conduct expressed in sententious form.
Truth is objective. Something is or is not true on basis of what
it actually is, rather than on my subjective desire of what it ought to be.
But truth can also be subjective, the truth of today may not be the truth
of yesterday or tomorrow, or the truth may belong to certain tradition or groups of people.
Sardonic - Implies scorn, mockery or derision that is manifested by either
verbal or facial expression. (surveyed the scene with a sardonic smile)
Analogy - An Inference that if things agree in some respects they probably
agree in others.
Inference - The reasoning involved in drawing a conclusion or making a logical
judgment on the basis of circumstantial evidence and conclusions rather
that on the basis of direct observation.
Paradox - A statement that contradicts itself. "I always lie" is a paradox,
because if it is true, it must be false. (I guess, you can't always lie)
- Consciousness is perceiving the world, hhow and in whay way, based on
current truth or false turh or only if we are really consciousness,
meaning we know it and the surrounding and that we are not tricked into it ?!
Apoditcic - Expressing or of the nature of necessary truth or absolute certainty.
Value is an estimate of future benefits, Cost represents a measure of past
expenditure (money paid out), Price reflects the actual amount paid for something.
Syllogism- (Aristotelianism)
A a deductive scheme of a formal argument consisting of a major and a minor
premise and a conclusion (as in "every virtue is laudable; kindness is a
virtue; therefore kindness is laudable - that's Logical").
