...are similar to the forces between molecules of one and molecules of the other. Deviations in Raoult’s law for mixtures of liquids cause the formation of azeotropes . The law was discovered by the French chemist François Raoult ( 1830–1901 ) in 1887. http://web.lemoyne.edu/~giunta/raoult2.html Raoult’s original paper in Comptes Rendus ...

...would produce between these conductors a force equal to 2 × 10 -7 newton per metre of length. (This number effectively set the magnetic permeability of vacuum at 4π × 10 -7 H⋅m -1 ; see permittivity .) The following are among the coherent derived units: • A⋅m -1 for magnetic field strength, magnetization; • A⋅m -2 for current density; • A⋅s = coulomb for quantity of electricity; • A⋅s⋅V -1 = farad for electric capacitance; • A⋅V -1 = siemens for electric conductance; • A⋅H = weber for magnetic flux; • A⋅turn for magnetomotive force.

...current equals the ratio of power produced in watts to the current strength in amperes; equally the product of current strength in amperes and resistance in ohms. V = W⋅A -1 = A⋅Ω. SI , Metric-m.k.s.A. (= m 2 ⋅kg⋅s -3 ⋅A -1 in base terms). The following are among the coherent derived units: • V⋅m -1 for electric field strength; • V⋅s = weber for magnetic flux; • V⋅A for apparent power; • V⋅A -1 = ohm for electric resistance.

...else composite) measure-unit symbol in the string. The preferred practice now is to restrict such uses of powers to exponents that are multiples of 3, i.e. to integer powers of 1 000. Thus a value that might be written as 1.732 × 10 11 should be written as 173.2 × 10 9 else 0.173 2 × 10 12 . For mass, such multipliers should apply to the kilogram; for most other circumstances they should preferably apply directly to an unqualified unit else to a string of them. Unless there is special cause, a compound expression should be resolved into standard...
