The charges, q1 and q2, can be positive or negative with force being attractive or repulsive depending on the multiplicative product of the charges. If there are several charges, the net force on the test charge is simply the superposition of the individual forces.

A superheated fluid is one that is in a metastable condition, which normally occurs for a pure, homogeneous substance in an exceptionally clean container to avoid nucleation sites that create bubbles. ) In the condenser, the superheated refrigerant gas first cools along path 2 to 2a and then the vapor loses more heat during its phase transition to a liquid (path 2a to 3). 1 that fall off at the left, are flat in the center, and rise at the right of the figure. As it leaves the condenser, the refrigerant is essentially completely in a liquid state and is again in a saturated state, holding as much thermal energy as possible without boiling.

The full width at half max (FWHM) of the beam (second solid circle) shows the ring where the beam intensity has fallen to half of its central value. Slightly more than 3/4 of the total energy is encircled within the FWHM radius. The dashed line shows the area of 99% encirclement. When the beam is over a pit, approximately 70% of the focused light is shifted to destructive interference with another 6–8% lost due to scattering from the pit edges.
