- During the excavation process we will have to not only remove dirt, but also rocks, trees, and any vegetation that is in the way.
Refers to a light or energy or heat that is emitted from waves.
- This machine radiate a lot of heat, be careful.
Is a mechanism that usually has rings that are situated at right angles. They are used to keep things such as compasses or chronometers horizontal when an aircraft or vessel is moving.
- A gimbal is one of the most important devices on any plane.
Refers to a specific order that movements, events, or things are arranged or follow each other. A sequence can be planned or unplanned. It is simply the order that events take place.
