What is Uniformity: Definition and 29 Discussions

The Act of Uniformity 1662 (14 Car 2 c 4) is an Act of the Parliament of England. (It was formerly cited as 13 & 14 Ch.2 c. 4, by reference to the regnal year when it was passed on 19 May 1662.) It prescribed the form of public prayers, administration of sacraments, and other rites of the Established Church of England, according to the rites and ceremonies prescribed in the Book of Common Prayer. Adherence to this was required in order to hold any office in government or the church, although the 1662 edition of the Book of Common Prayer prescribed by the Act was so new that most people had never even seen a copy. The Act also required that the Book of Common Prayer 'be truly and exactly Translated into the British or Welsh Tongue'. It also explicitly required episcopal ordination for all ministers, i.e. deacons, priests and bishops, which had to be reintroduced since the Puritans had abolished many features of the Church during the Civil War.
A few sections of this Act were still in force in the United Kingdom at the end of 2010.

    B How do fields retain their uniformity with interposing objects?

    Why don't interposing objects interfere with the integrity of a field's energy between the source and its absorber? For example, the Sun's gravitational field spreads uniformly through space. If there are interposing objects like Mercury or Venus between the Sun and the Earth, why don't they...

    MHB Chi-square test vs K-S test of uniformity, is it necessary to normalize values between 0-1?

    Say two digits numbers are given like 10,20,30,55,95,85,12,13,52...etc. Is it necessary to normalize them to numbers between 0 to 1? i.e 0.10 for 10, 0.20 for 20 and so on? I've read this to be the case for K-S test. But I'm not sure for chi-square test. I'm not 100% sure on this information as...

    I Measuring Spacing with Shortcut Technique: Is Uniformity Achieved?

    I saw on a home improvement show some "shortcut" for measuring out a series of fixed measurements over a distance (it pertained to spacing baluster for porch railing). The contractor places a series of lines of some small incremental distance (1 or 2 inches say) on an elastic fabric band, and...

    A (Plasma Physics) Spatial uniformity of particle species

    Early in Bellan he asks us to consider a finite-temperature plasma and assume that the ion and electron densities are initially equal and spatially uniform. He approaches the problem of calculating the Debye length by considering each species of particle, σ , as being a fluid so that the...

    I Is inflation needed to explain uniformity?

    Inflation seems to explain why distantly separated parts of the universe are at the same temperature etc. But I've never seen any reason why the different parts should have been at different temperatures in the first place. Is there a simple answer to that?
