Maximum demand indicator

A Maximum Demand Indicator is an instrument which measures the maximum amount of electrical energy required by a specific consumer during a given period of time.


Nuclear weapon yield

The explosive yield of a nuclear weapon is the amount of energy released when that particular nuclear weapon is detonated, usually expressed as a TNT equivalent, either in kilotons, in megatons, or sometimes in terajoules. An explosive yield of one terajoule is equal to 0.239 kilotonnes of TNT. Because the accuracy of any measurement of the energy released by TNT has always been problematic, the conventional definition is that one kiloton of TNT is held simply to be equivalent to 10 12 calories. The yield-to-weight ratio is the amount of weapon yield compared to the mass of the weapon. The ...


Resting metabolic rate

Resting metabolic rate is whole-body mammal metabolism during a time period of strict and steady resting conditions that are defined by a combination of assumptions of physiological homeostasis and biological equilibrium. RMR differs from basal metabolic rate because BMR measurements must meet total physiological equilibrium whereas RMR conditions of measurement can be altered and defined by the contextual limitations. Therefore, BMR is measured in the elusive "perfect" steady state, whereas RMR measurement is more accessible and thus, represents most, if not all measurements or estimates ...
