  Scale factor (Universe) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The scale factor, parameter of Friedmann-LemaƮtre-Robertson-Walker model, is a function of time which represents the relative expansion of the universe.
The scale factor could, in principle, have units of length or be dimensionless.
The evolution of the scale factor is a dynamical question, determined by the equations of general relativity, which are presented in the case of a locally isotropic, locally homogeneous universe by the Friedmann equations.

 Scale factor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the equation y = Cx, C is the scale factor for x.
C is also the coefficient of x, and may be called the constant of proportionality of y to x.
There is also a scale factor for the expansion of the Universe.

 Scale Factor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The scale factor of figure B to A is: 1/3 (9 * 1/3 = 3; 15 * 1/3 = 5)
It is the reciprocal of the scale factor from the small to the large.
If the scale factor from the small to the large is s, then the area of the large figure is squared or to the second power times the area of the small figure.

The scale factor for a CAD drawing is based on its final plot size.
For example, the scale of 3" = 1'-0" is the same as 3"=12" or a pure ratio of 1:4.
The scale factor is important in determining many things, such as the linetype scale, text heights, and dimension sizing.

 Scale Factor Editing (P)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
If a scale editing descriptor is specified, the scale factor is set to the new value, which affects all subsequent real edit descriptors until another scale editing descriptor occurs.
On input, a positive scale factor moves the decimal point to the left, and a negative scale factor moves the decimal point to the right.
For G editing, the scale factor has no effect if the magnitude of the data to be output is within the effective range of the descriptor (the G descriptor supplies its own scaling).

 Scale Factor Editing - the P Edit Descriptor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
On output, the effect of the scale factor depends on the type of field descriptor associated with it.
The effect of the scale factor for the G field descriptor is suspended if the magnitude of the data to be output is within the effective range of the descriptor, because the G field descriptor supplies its own scaling function.
On output, a scale factor under E, D, or G field descriptor control merely alters the form in which the data is transferred.

 TCP option 3, Window Scale Option   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The window scale extension expands the definition of the TCP window to 32 bits and then uses a scale factor to carry this 32 bit value in the 16 bit Window field of the TCP header (SEG.WND in RFC-793).
It would be incorrect to send a window scale option only when the scale factor changed, since a TCP option in an acknowledgement segment will not be delivered reliably (unless the ACK happens to be piggy-backed on data in the other direction).
The scale factor is limited to a power of two and encoded logarithmically, so it may be implemented by binary shift operations.

 Scale Factor
The closer the scale factor is to 1 the easier it is to match the appearance of scale flight.
As a scientific curiosity, if you scale down an airplane the density (which was assumed constant in the C-47 shrink) has to go down with the square root of the scale factor if the speed scales like we want it to.
For the scale factor of 1/14 this would mean the density of the model would have to be about 26.7% the density of the original aircraft.

 Scale Factor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The projection of the spheroid onto a plane requires that measured distances be adjusted by a scale factor the value of which is determined by the map projection being used.
The creation of setout notes requires that the calculated distances between two points must be divided by the scale factor so that the plane distances from the map projection are adjusted to suit the curvature of the Earth and thus ensure that the setouts are in the correct position.
The default scale factor may be changed by this function if you wish to use a more precise scale factor rather than a mean scale factor for the area of interest.

To calculate the scale you need, first establish your system of units and second, determine a scale factor.
A scale factor is a setting that enables you to produce a plot at the size you want from a drawing that you have created at full scale.
Sheet size is calculated in the same way as in manual drafting, except that you use the resulting scale ratio to scale up the sheet size to fit around the full scale size of your drawing.

Do you know what a scale factor is? If you do, the first part is simple: it's just the ratio of the two numbers you were given.
If two figures are similar (the same shape), as all regular octagons are, then the ratio of any length in the figure (such as a diameter, or the perimeter) will be the same as the scale factor, and the ratio of areas will be the SQUARE of the scale factor.

 Citebase - The Inverse Scale Factor in Isotropic Quantum Geometry
The inverse scale factor, which in classical cosmological models diverges at the singularity, is quantized in isotropic models of loop quantum cosmology by using techniques which have been developed in quantum geometry for a quantization of general relativity.
For large scale factors (in fact, up to a scale factor slightly above the Planck length) the eigenvalues are close to the classical expectation, whereas below the Planck length there are large deviations leading to a non-diverging behavior of the inverse scale factor even though the scale factor has vanishing eigenvalues.
Already at the kinematical level, this is indicated by the fact that the inverse scale factor is represented by a bounded operator even though the classical quantity diverges at the...
