1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for the Republic of Peru. This is the code used in international transactions to and from Peruvian bank accounts.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Peru. This is used as an international standard for shipping to Peru. Each department and the constitutional province has its own code with the prefix "PE." For example, the code for the Province of Cuzco is ISO 3166-2:PE-CUS.

According with potential energy curve and the r in Fig.
(8) The total potential energy of the pile and soil system [PI], [PI] = [W.sub.u] + [] - [W.sub.p] - [W.sub.b] + [summation]dE + [summation][] - [W.sub.s];
Caption: FIGURE 8: Configuration 1: (a) mechanical energy transaction in the NES-piezoelectricity system; (b) kinetic and potential energy transaction of NES; (c) potential energy transaction of hysteresis behavior and piezoelectric device; (d) dissipated and harvested energy transaction in the NES-piezoelectricity system.
This recognition that molecules in a liquid effectively reside in a potential energy well imposed by the electrical forces holding them to neighbors serves as the inspiration for our mechanical demonstration.
The potential energy function in response to different types of contact constraints is not the same but has a one-to-one correspondence.
There were also other studies that used similar methods of finding the potential energy usage reduction from the implementation of energy conservation measures compared to the initial energy consumption, despite the fact that almost all of the studies were either done for schools that were in different climates, or focused on different energy systems such as heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning, which differs from our condition.
initio quantum chemistry calculation is performed for potential energy surfaces and nonadiabatic coupling vectors.
In this compressed state, the spring holds potential energy. The spring then lengthens back into place.
The goal of the visits was to research potential energy sectors and private companies, as well as to make the initial steps and prepare documentation.
In addition to the hands-on activity, there is also a TV episode about aquatic pet rescue vehicles, an animation about kinetic and potential energy, and a video profile of an engineer who has designed the world's first high-speed powerboat--fueled entirely by biodiesel.
The potential energy yields are enormous, with 6.2GW of estimated capacity or over 10GW including the Severn Estuary.
