After ads, Biggles is approached through a count number Alexander Stavropulos and provided a beneficiant salary to fly for him. Biggles is taken by way of aircraft to Noriovika, a village in northern Greece the place the count number has a personal airfield. right here, he's surprised to discover Roderick Canson, a crooked ex-RAF pilot who Biggles has formerly visible imprisoned in BIGGLES AND THE BLACK masks. fortunately, the count number already understands that Biggles is an ex-policeman so Canson can't divulge him. Canson and a pilot known as Jumbo Brady are despatched on a regimen supply to Africa yet a message is later obtained that their Constellation airplane has crashed in a space referred to as the Sudd. Biggles is assigned as co-pilot to Sandy furnish and they're either despatched out in a one other Constellation airplane to rescue Canson, Brady and their shipment.

Lieutenant I'Nobo arrives simply in time to forestall difficulty. Ducard and his males go away, yet then certainly one of them, referred to as Christmas, deserts, to flee from Ducard and subscribe to Biggles and the others. This brings Ducard again and one other harmful war of words is simply refrained from by way of the well timed arrival of Algy and Ginger. they've got pop out to the Congo with the count number, who's attempting to deal with what's occurring together with his planes. He actually has no wisdom of any smuggling as he obtained the goods for supply prepared packed and the Greek govt set a capture for the true culprits at the back of the smuggling operation.

As would be expected, the relative contribution of "knock-on" ionizations increases with increasing kinetic energies of these released electrons. 26). As an electron slows down from 500 keV to 400 keV in water, about 17% of the total transferred energy appears as excitations of the water molecules, while 35% is transferred to secondary electrons with kinetic energies below 100 keV. The energy converted to X-rays is negligible, but the emission of K-electrons from oxygen accounts for 19% of the energy; however, the K-ionization process requires a relatively large amount of energy, and the number of molecules damaged by this primary process is negligible compared with the number damaged through the ionization of valence electrons.

A. 0 0 A. -A. The influence of reverse processes on a three-hit curve is shown in Fig. 13. The slope of the curve decreases as the relative importance of the reverse processes increases, and it gradually approaches an exponential form. The reverse processes often depend on the radiation intensity (or dose rate). Assuming, for example, the recovery parameter A. to be inversely proportional to the intensity, then an increase in intensity corresponds to a progression within the family of curves shown in Fig.

This frequency is called the oscillator strength "I s" of the oscillator having the frequency y s. 23.
