Die Platte Industrialisierter Wohnungsbau in der DDR

Der Begriff, Plattenbau' ist in der Diskussion uber die Wohnungsversorgung in den neuen Bundeslandern zu einer Kategorie geworden, mit der mancher apoka lyptische Vorstellungen verbindet. Oberall in Ostdeutschland, sowohl in den Stadten als auch in landlichen Bereichen, begegnet guy der, Platte', denn in den letzten Jahren der DDR wurde im Wohnungsbau nur noch ein einziges Bausystem realisiert.

Doping implies impregnation of silicon by positive and negative agents, such as phosphor and boron. Phosphor creates a free electron that produces so-called N-type material. Boron creates a “hole,” or a shortage of an electron, that produces so-called P-type material. Impregnation is accomplished by depositing the previously referenced dopants on the surface of silicon using a certain heating or chemical process. The N-type material has a propensity to lose electrons and gain holes, so it acquires a positive charge.

4 diagram. 5 V of potential energy, which is characteristic of most PN junctions and all solar cells. This miniscule potential resembles in function a small battery with positive and negative leads. These are then connected front to back in series to achieve higher voltages. For example, 48 solar cell modules connected in series will result in 24 V of output. An increase in the number of solar cells within the solar cell bank will result in a higher voltage. This voltage is employed to operate inverters that convert the dc power into a more suitable ac form of electricity.

It could have been interrupted by the introduction of large amounts of freshwater in the North Atlantic, possibly caused by melting of glaciers during the medieval warming period. According to documented records, around 1850 the global climate began warming, and the little ice age ended. Notwithstanding, scientific opinion of the effects of the little ice age on climate change is that warming over the last 50 years has increased proportions of CO2 in the atmosphere, stemming from human, or anthropogenic, activity.
