What is Electronic: Definition and 441 Discussions

Electronic warfare (EW) is any action involving the use of the electromagnetic spectrum (EM spectrum) or directed energy to control the spectrum, attack an enemy, or impede enemy assaults. The purpose of electronic warfare is to deny the opponent the advantage of, and ensure friendly unimpeded access to, the EM spectrum. EW can be applied from air, sea, land, and/or space by manned and unmanned systems, and can target communication, radar, or other assets (military and civilian).

    Object detector using ultrasonic sensor with 555 timer

    See the attached figure. I used 220uF with buzzer and also tried 10uF capacitor but buzzer isn't loud enough. I don't have any 3.3pf capacitor. I used 1.1 pF instead. I also tried changing the resistance of potentiometer but still buzzer isn't sound loud enough.

    General electronic configuration of the d and f block elements

    Is it ##(n-1)d^{1->10}ns^2 \ or \ (n-1)d^{1->10}ns^{0->2}## ? My textbook says it is the latter. But I feel like it should be the former. Moreover, period 6 and 7 has the presence of f-orbitals.
