Calcination not only dehydrates the amorphous silica but initiates conversion of Opal – A to cristobalite (40-60%).

Characterization - Examples and Definition

Characterization as a literary tool was coined in the mid 15th century. Aristotle in his Poetics argued that "tragedy is a representation, not of men, but of action and life." Thus the assertion of the dominance of plot over characters, termed "plot-driven narrative," is unmistakable.This point of view was later abandoned by many because, in the 19th century, the dominance of character ...
