order of magnitude
order of magnitude
- a number assigned to the ratio of two quantities; two quantities are of the same order of magnitude if one is less than 10 times as large as the other; the number of magnitudes that the quantities differ is specified to within a power of 10
- This oil field used to produce an order of magnitude more oil as it does now.
- Such an order of magnitude appears reasonable.
- Nature and order of magnitude (… ppm, … %) of any additives (e.g. stabilising agents or inhibitors)
- Only 5 to 6 newsprint installations in the same order of magnitude exist in western Europe.
- Moreover, perpetuity levels are generally estimated to be of a similar order of magnitude as the economic growth rate.
- The 50 % should of course not be considered as an exact threshold, but just as an order of magnitude.
- The order of magnitude of these timeframes is significantly below the usual depreciation and lifetime of any power generation station.
- This makes it necessary to analyse the magnitude of this impact in order to assess the Measure.
- It could therefore be said that the order of magnitude involved was in conformity with the market.
- The 50 % should of course not be considered as an exact threshold, but just as an order of magnitude.’
- However, this comparison gives an indication of the order of magnitude of the difference between the PPA and the actually observed ‘non-PPA’ prices.
- The 50 % should of course not be considered as the result of an exact estimation, but as an order of magnitude.’
- a description of the actions taken in order to ascertain the cause and magnitude of any accidental loss that might have occurred;
- a description of the actions taken in order to ascertain the cause and magnitude of any accidental or unmeasured loss that might have occurred;
- This means that an overnight volatility of 5 % is regarded as a maximum in normal times. Such an order of magnitude appears reasonable.
