**Diffraction grating**— A very large reflecting diffraction grating. In optics, a diffraction grating is an optical component with a periodic structure, which splits and diffracts light into several beams travelling in different directions. The directions of these beams …122

**Starling equation**— The Starling equation is an equation that illustrates the role of hydrostatic and oncotic forces (the so called Starling forces) in the movement of fluid across capillary membranes.Capillary fluid movement may occur as a result of two processes:… …123
