the battlecruiser, or battle-cruiser, was a type of capital ship of the first half of the 20th century. they were similar in displacement, armament and cost to battleships, but differed slightly in form and balance of attributes.battlecruisers typically had slightly thinner armour and a lighter main gun battery than contemporary battleships, installed on a longer hull with much higher engine .
in cricket, a run is the unit of scoring.the team with the most runs wins in many versions of the game, and always ds at worst see result , except for some results decided by the dls method.one run known as a 'single' is scored when a batsman known as the 'striker' has hit the ball with the bat, or with a gloved hand holding the bat, and directed it away from the fielders so that both .
many people have made use of, or invented, units of measurement intended primarily for their humor value. this is a list of such units invented by sources that are notable for reasons other than having made the unit itself, and that are widely known in the anglophone world for their humour value.
the british thermal unit btu or btu is a non-si, traditional unit of heat; it is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree fahrenheit.it is also part of the united states customary units. its counterpart in the old metric system is the calorie, which is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of .
ground pressure is the pressure exerted on the ground by the tires or tracks of a motorized vehicle, and is one measure of its potential mobility, especially over soft ground. it also applies to the feet of a walking person or machine.ground pressure is measured in pascals pa which corresponds to the united states customary units unit of pounds per square inch psi .
many advocate that compost can be made in 2 to 3 weeks. many such short processes involve a few changes to traditional methods, including smaller, more homogenized pieces in the compost, controlling carbon-to-nitrogen ratio c:n at 30 to 1 or less, and monitoring the moisture level more carefully.
the rainhill trials were an important competition run in october 1829, to test george stephenson's argument that locomotives would provide the best motive power for the then nearly-completed liverpool and manchester railway l&mr . five locomotives were entered, running along a 1 mile 1.6 km length of level track at rainhill, in lancashire now merseyside .
submarines from many nations in world war ii survived being forced through crush depth, due to flooding or mechanical failure, only to have the water pumped out, or the failure repaired, and succeed in surfacing again. these reports are not necessarily verifiable, and popular misunderstanding of the difference between test depth and collapse depth can confuse the discussion.
piezo = 1.21 * crusher - 2.8. in addition to these linear approximations, there also exist exponential conversion approximation formulas for estimating from about 0 to about 60 ksi crusher values to psi values, and these are sometimes used up to around 67 ksi, but with significantly increasing errors.
the ground pressure of motorized vehicles is often compared to the ground pressure of a human foot, which can be 60 – 80 kpa while walking or as much as 13 mpa for a person in spike heels. increasing the size of the contact area on the ground the footprint in relation to the weight
the 325 started its run at 9:51 from dangeau and accelerated for 15 minutes, achieving a top speed of 515.3 km/h 320.3 mph at the bottom of the hill at kilometer post 166.8. at the conclusion of the test campn, the train had reached top speeds in excess of 500 km/h on nine separate occasions, including the world speed record.
a duck refers to a batsman being dismissed without scoring a run. former west indian fast bowler courtney walsh has scored the highest number of ducks in test cricket with 43 followed by new zealand's chris martin with 36. stuart broad, with 35 scoreless innings, and james anderson, with 26, are equal third and equal ninth on the list respectively.
this is a list of bank runs.a bank run occurs when a large number of bank customers withd their deposits because they believe the bank might fail. as more people withd their deposits, the likelihood of default increases, and this encourages further withdals. this can destabilize the bank to the point where it faces bankruptcy.
