  PlanetMath: equivalent norms
In matrix analysis this is particularly useful as one can choose the norm that is most easily calculated.
In this setting, all norms are also equivalent on a finite dimensional vector space.
This is version 5 of equivalent norms, born on 2003-05-28, modified 2006-02-06.

  Equivalent Fractions
Equivalent fractions are fractions that have the same value or represent the same part of an object.
Fractions are determined to be equivalent by multiplying the numerator and denominator of one fraction by the same number.
Since 3/6 is not the same as 3/7, the fractions are not equivalent.

 Equivalent dose - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Equivalent dose is therefore a less fundamental quantity than radiation absorbed dose, but is more biologically significant.
The equivalent dose should not be mistaken for dose equivalent.
Equivalent dose (E) is calculated by multiplying the absorbed dose (D) with the evaluation factor.

 Equivalent Fractions using Cuisenaire Rods
For example, in the first fraction of the equivalent fraction group 1, the numerator of 2/8 is the number of white rods used in the fraction (2) and the denominator of 2/8 is the number of white rods that would be needed to equal the unit in length (8).
In the second equivalent fraction, the numerator of 1/4 is the number of red rods used in the fraction (1) and the denominator is the number of red rods (4) that would be required to equal the unit length.
Some students may want to insert a dark green rod in the equivalent group 3 or a brown rod in the equivlent group 4, however neither of these are possible because neither 6 nor 8 divide evenly into 10 so their is no fractional equivalent for this rod when the orange rod is the unit.

 AllRefer.com - equivalent weight (Chemistry) - Encyclopedia
The equivalent weight of an element or radical is equal to its atomic weight or formula weight divided by the valence it assumes in compounds.
The unit of equivalent weight is the atomic mass unit; the amount of a substance in grams numerically equal to the equivalent weight is called a gram equivalent.
Iron (atomic weight 55.847) has an equivalent weight of 27.924 in ferrous compounds (valence 2) and 18.616 in ferric compounds (valence 3).

 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0
The power of text equivalents lies in their capacity to be rendered in ways that are accessible to people from various disability groups using a variety of technologies.
In the context of this document, the equivalent must fulfill essentially the same function for the person with a disability (at least insofar as is feasible, given the nature of the disability and the state of technology), as the primary content does for the person without any disability.
Depending on the complexity of the equivalent, it may be necessary to combine techniques (e.g., use "alt" for an abbreviated equivalent, useful to familiar readers, in addition to "longdesc" for a link to more complete information, useful to first-time readers).

 Norton's Theorem
Any collection of batteries and resistances with two terminals is electrically equivalent to an ideal current source i in parallel with a single resistor r.
The value of r is the same as that in the Thevenin equivalent and the current i can be found by dividing the open circuit voltage by r.
The value i for the current used in Norton's Theorem is found by determining the open circuit voltage at the terminals AB and dividing it by the Norton resistance r.

 Equivalent Lens Focal Lengths For Different Film Sizes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
Determining the 35 mm focal length equivalent for a 2 1/4 Square format camera lens is an apples to oranges comparison unless you set some specifications for framing and print aspect ratio.
The traditional definition of a normal lens is that its focal length is equivalent to the film diagonal length.
In the case of a 2 1/4 Square format it might be useful to modify this definition to specify the largest 8x10 print area of the 2 1/4 film aperture (which coincidentally is closer to 80 millimeters than the square's diagonal).
