The torch stays the same but how the spectrometer reads the emission data is changed. Axially is when the system looks down at the central channel of the plasma. Radially is when it looks at a slit or a slice of the plasme from the side. Most ICP read radially, but axially is used for more of a ppb range.

What is the difference between axial bearing and radial bearing?

In axial bearing the most power force in the same direction as the axis of the shaft In radial bearing no.

Difference between electrolytic axial and radial capacitors?

Difrence is between lead positions. Axial one is -[]- and Radial =[] Axial ones are mutch pricier, but they are good choice for poin to point construction and low profile pcb's.

What is the difference between axial load and radial load?

Axial load (or thrust load) is a force applied parallel to the longitudinal axis, whereas, a radial load is a force applied transverse to this longitudinal axis.

Major difference between thrust radial bearing?

thrust bearing takes axial loads radial bearing takes radial loads axis is line about which races or ring rotate

What is the difference between radial displacement and axial displacement?

Hey, the difference is quite clear! Radial is the distance between the two shaft axis and is quantified by measuring the radial distance between the centerline of one shaft if it were to be extended to overlap the other, but Axial misalignment is the variation in axial distance between the shafts of the driving and driven machinery. Good luck honey...

What is difference between radial flow turbine and axial flow turbine?

in a radial flow turbine the steam enters the turbine in the direction of its radius and leaves it in the direction of the axis of the shaft. in a axial flow turbine the steam enters the turbine in the direction of the axis of the shaft and leaves the turbine in the same direction.

What is the difference between E and nu in engineering geology?

E is generally taken to be the elastic constant known as Young's modulus which describes the relationship between axial stress and axial strain where Hooke's law still applies (i.e. linear elasticity). Nu is Poisson's ratio which is the relationship between axial strain and radial or transverse strain. For more information, please see the related link.

What is the different between axial turbocharger and radial turbocharger?

An axial compressor uses many stages of "fans" with stators to compress air in the same direction as its original flow. An example of this is that of *most* turbojet engines' compressors. A radial (or centrifugal) compressor works at right angles to the airflow's original direction. An example of a radial compressor is the compressor on an automotive turbocharger.

What is the difference in working between axial flow pumps and mixed flow pumps?

In axial flow pumps, fluid enters and exits along the same direction parallel to the rotating shaft giving high flow rates and low head. In radial flow pumps, fluid enters and leaves perpendicular to the rotating shaft giving high head and low flow rates. Thus, in mixed we have combined of both axial and radial.i.e.Liquid will go behind the impeller at certain angle between 0-90degrees normally below 45degree.Mixed flow replace axial when we require head not provided by the axial pump as we have to lift water from a water a lower level and then discharge it. physically,mixed flow can be identified by bellmouth(diverging converging shape) which shows its between axial and radial.

Can a radial capacitor react different than an axial capacitor when being used as a filter for EMF?

Yes. The inductance of a radial capacitor can be different than an axial capacitor, particularly at RF, so the reaction as a filter for EMF could well be different.

What is the difference between axial fans and propeller fans?

Axial fans are divided into three groups: propeller, tubeaxial and vaneaxial. Hence, every propeller fan is an axial fan but the opposite is incorrect.
