### What is an easy way to verify that a formula references the cells that you want it to reference in excel?

Use absolute references (e.g. $C$3) instead of relative references (e.g. C3). See related questions for more information about absolute references.

### Is it possible to calculate the coefficient of variation using relative values instead of absolute values?

The coefficient of variation should be computed only for data measured on a ratio scale, as the coefficient of variation may not have any meaning for data on an interval scale. Using relative values instead of absolute values can cause the formula to give an incorrect answer.

### If you have written a formula you can drag it down or across other cells what is this called?

I am not sure what you are asking, but my best guess is that the question should be "How do you create a formula you can drag to other cells without changing the original cells in the forumula?" The answer to the new question is: Use absolute cell references. Instead of using =SUM(A1:A23) write =SUM($A$1:$A$23). When you move the formula with absolute cell references, it does not change.

### Why you use kelivin in calculation instead of celsius and Fahrenheit?

Kelvin has the advantage that it is an absolute temperature scale - it starts from absolute zero. This simplifies several calculations; for example, in an ideal gas, at constant pressure, the volume of the gas is proportional to the absolute temperature. Similarly, calculations related to heat machines are simpler if an absolute temperature scale is used.

### How was Einstein famous?

He discovered new theories - special relativity, general relativity and the beginnings of quantum mechanics. These discoveries revolutionised the way we understand reality. For example, now we know that time is not absolute, mass can be converted to energy (e=mc^2), and that energy is not continuous but it instead divided up into quanta (E=hf).

because they wanted more power in there leader

### What is a mathematical formula and types of formulas?

Mathematical formula are the algebraic expressions which help calculating easily and mathematically instead of going deep and using steps.

### Why can an object still be seen when it is at absolute zero?

Let me ask you instead why you think it should DISAPPEAR at absolute zero, which would actually be a lot harder to explain. In the real world, nothing is ever at absolute zero, so it's kind of a moot point. Even if we posit that miraculously something was, the mere act of illuminating it would transfer energy to it and raise the temperature some infinitesmal bit above absolute zero.

### How the absolute age of the brachiopod was found?

Absolute age differs from relative age in that it states exactly how old something is, instead of how old it is compared to something else. The age of most fossils, including those of brachiopods, are determined using the carbon dating method.

### What is quantile regression?

Quantile regression is considered a natural extension of ordinary least squares. Instead of estimating the mean of the regressand for a given set of regressors, and instead of minimizing sum of squares, it estimates different values of the regressand across its distribution, and minimizes instead the absolute distances between observations.

### What are the side affects Removyl Advanced Formula?

You lose a lot of money instead of weight.

### Why are lipids described as non-polymeric?

Unlike the proteins,nucleic acid and polysaccharides, lipids are not polymers. It is because it do not contain any fixed monomeric units instead it has a long chain of methylene groups (-CH2-CH2-CH2-CH2-)and has a general formula : CH3-(CH2)n-COOH

### How much fresh coriander do you use instead of dried?

The general answer for herb and spice conversions is 3 parts of fresh for 1 part of dried. For example, if a recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of dried coriander leaf (also known as cilantro leaf), use 3 tablespoons of fresh instead. However, this conversion does not work for anything that is ground, such as coriander seed. This formula is only for whole spices or herbs.

The subscript is mentioned only in a chemical formula. 3 FeCl3 in a chemical reaction is not similar to Fe3O4 in a chemical formula.

### Why is kelvin used as measurement for temperature instead of degrees celsius?

Kelvin is an absolute scale, which makes much more sense once you understand that temperature is related to the speed of atoms (they can't have a negative speed). An absolute scale is one in which the lowest possible temperature is zero. An absolute scale also makes more sense in thermodynamics, where the ratios between two temperatures are often important.

### Why use an absolute reference in Excel?

Absolute references are very useful in a spreadsheet. You would use them when you want to refer to a cell that is going to be a fixed value in a cell. If that value is likely to change from time to time, it is better to implement it in a cell and use an absolute reference. So for example: Go to B1 and type in 10% Then go to A2 and type in any value… Read More
