By compiling FAQ lists (FAQs), organizations significantly reduce time spent repeatedly answering the same questions. F The unit of capacitance in the meter-kilogram-second system equal to the capacitance of a capacitor having an equal and opposite charge of 1 coulomb on each plate and a potential difference of 1 volt between the plates.[AHD] [After Michael Faraday.] Faraday, Michael (1791-1867) British physicist and chemist who discovered electromagnetic induction (1831) and proposed the field theory later developed by Maxwell and Einstein.far-field or far sound field The sound field distant enough from the sound source so the SPL decreases by 6 d B for each doubling of the distance from the source (inverse square law). Farmborough Festival A 3-day country music festival located on Randall's Island, next to Manhattan and the Bronx in NY City—a first. The solution is implemented sequentially in the time domain.
Short distances (typically less than 150 feet) use plastic fibers, while long distances must use glass fibers. The degree with which a system, or a portion of a system, accurately reproduces at its output the essential characteristics of the signal that is impressed upon its input. (modeling and simulation) The degree of similarity between a model and the system properties being modeled. One half of a complete video scanning cycle, equaling 1/60 second, or 16.67 milliseconds for NTSC and 1/50 second, or 20 milliseconds for PAL/SECAM.far-end crosstalk Crosstalk that is propagated in a disturbed channel in the same direction as the propagation of the signal in the disturbing channel. FDDI (fiber distributed data interface) An ANSI standard describing a 100 megabytes/sec (MBps) fiber optic LAN; now also specified for twisted-pair use.
