    Paragraph describing foward bias diode behaviour has 2 errors:

    Text "As the voltage is increases" - the word "is" is not required else "increases" should be "increased".

    Text "voltage approaches 0.6V at (c)" makes reference to "(c)" however there is no point (c) on the diagram (There is a diagram "(c)").

    Instead of splattering the forum with many threads, why not put your corrections into one thread?

    Hello,

    I merged all proofreading messages into one thread.
    Thats why Bill_Marsden's reactions coma afther all error readings.

    Proof read error #3...

    Verified


    Not verified, there is indeed a diagram C on the illustration, and the verbage can be interpreted as referring to diagram (C). This will be reviewed by the editor and a decision made.

    Please see http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/worksheets/metric.html

    math proof error: 4 × (10 squared) kg is one value, 400kg. But 4.5 x (10 squared) and 4.500 x (10 squared) are a completely different value, not only in uncertainty, but in mass, by about 50 kg. I think.

    I haven't figured out how to insert exponents so please forgive the non-standard bracketing. And many thanks to everyone who has contributed time and energy.

    Worksheets are problematic. I think we need the proofchecks, but we don't really have a system at this time to correct them. It is and remains a problem, one that I have no power over. I'm explaining this because I know about the issue.

    Typically exponents can be shown in simple text using the ^ character. 4 cubed can be expressed as 4^3.

    1.414^2≈2

    A long while back I made thread to help for special characters. It applies for a lot more than this site. I have it bookmarked.

    1st paragraph reads:
    "correspondes" should be "corresponds"
    "ration" should be "ratio"
