The article presents analysis of the mathematical model for determination of a momentary dose of spray applied by the field sprayer nozzles which move on the curve with the forward speed the value of which may differ from the speed accepted for regulation. Regulation speed and regulation dose, real forward speed of a sprayer, angular velocity during the curve movement, and the coefficient of the nozzle location towards the axis of the sprayer turn are independent variables in the suggested model. Based on the mathematical model, plots were drawn and analyses of relation of the spray dose to particular variables were carried out including inter alia, a repeated field spray, application of a dose which considerably differs from the regulation dose and diversity of the dose on the working width of the sprayer.
An Esr Study of Free Radicals Scavenging by Red Tea
Herbal tea is known to exhibit the scavenging of free radicals responsible for cellular damage. We studied the effect of water treated with reverse osmotic filter equipped with a special dielectric ceramic composite on the antioxidant activity of red tea. Methanol solution of DPPH was added to the tea extract and the RT decay of DPPH free radicals was studied by ESR spectroscopy. Red tea brewed from tap water treated with the composite filter was found to exhibit higher radical scavenging efficiency in comparison with that of the tea brewed from tap water, mineral water and reverse osmosis water.
