EQUIVALENT. Of the same value. Sometimes a condition must be literally accomplished in forma specifica; but some may be fulfilled by an equivalent, per oequi polens, when such appears to be the intention of the parties; as, I promise to pay you one hundred dollars, and then die, my executor may fulfill my engagement; for it is equivalent to you whether the money be paid to you b me or by him.

Use of the PMHS-PDMS copolymer with the lower hydride equivalent weight results in a higher concentration of hydride groups being present along the polymer backbone at the time of coating application, which according to the statistical analysis resulted in better film uniformity/integrity.
Since the use of the PMHS-PDMS copolymer possessing a hydride equivalent weight of 135 provided the best crosslinking and film uniformity and integrity, this copolymer was used as the starting material for producing QAS-functional PDMS polymers were prepared that possessed variations in QAS moiety concentration.
Initial screening experiments were conducted using the same PMHS-PDMS copolymer starting material used for the addition-cured systems described in Table 6 which possessed a hydride equivalent weight of 135 g/mol.
frequency in the lithiated Dow-805 (805 g/equiv is the nominal equivalent weight of the ionomer) ionomer membrane imbibed with these solvents.
Therefore, a comparable Dow polymer would be one with an equivalent weight ([EW.
The reaction temperature profile (Figure 10) shows their differences in heat-up schedule on the way to the final hold until reaction "completion" as determined by standard offline measurements (acid number, AN, and epoxy equivalent weight, eew).
