Interest Rate

The percentage of the value of a balance or debt that one pays or is paid each time period. For example, if one holds a bond with a face value of $1,000 and a 3% interest rate payable each quarter, one receives $30 each quarter. The percentage of the interest rate remains constant (usually), but the amount one pays or is paid changes according to the amount of the balance or debt. For example, if one pays off part of the principal on a loan each month, the amount one pays in interest decreases even though the rate remains the same. See also: Time Value of Money.

On the contrary female showed significantly higher values of erythrocyte sedimentation rate than male (4.5 and 5.5mm/h).
In this study, improvements on the measurement method (shear rate increased from 0 [s.sup.-1] to 120 [s.sup.-1] and then back to 0 [s.sup.-1], corresponding to constant shear time as 120 s for both shear rate periods) were made for the emphasis on sedimentation properties at various mass concentrations of the backfilling material.
The increase was greater in the solar cell with the QD layer prepared by slow sedimentation. This may be due to the better performance of QDSLs.
The effluent was subjected to two stage treatment, i) sedimentation and ii) coagulation as discussed below:
The UV-Vis spectrophotometer, measure of pH values, and sedimentation techniques has been used for stability analysis in this investigation by keeping the nanofluids under static condition period of 30 days.
By the end of the study, erythrocyte sedimentation rate was slightly lower and tumor necrosis factor-alpha was significantly lower in quercetin-treated subjects, while no significant changes occurred in the placebo group.
Therefore, the purpose of this work is to simulate the sedimentation of three circular particles in a vertical channel by using the LB-DF/FD method.
To address this question, we examined the activated state of neutrophils when prepared by dextran sedimentation preceding density gradient centrifugation with those prepared by steps which removed monocytes prior to the dextran sedimentation [13-15] or with another which totally avoided the use of dextran, the 1-step density gradient centrifugation method.
One of the main problems in the design of magnetorheological fluids is the phenomena of their sedimentation. Sedimentation of particles is very hazardous when using MR fluids in some of them application.
