What is a period?

In the article I will introduce you to the meaning of various phrases, which include the word "period". You will learn about the period, as well as the period of any circulation and the period of oscillation, the embryonic or incubation period, as well as other values.

What is the period of oscillation

The period of oscillations in physics is called the minimum time interval for which the oscillator performs one full oscillation cycle (one oscillation), when the oscillator deviates from its original position and then returns to it. An oscillator is any device that produces a repeating signal. Part of the physical period of oscillation coincides with the mathematical period of the function, if by function we mean dependence on a physical quantity.

What is a grace period?

The concept of "grace period" is somewhat different in the insurance and banking sectors. In the banking sector, the grace period is the time during which the principal amount of the loan is not repaid. During this period, the payer either does not pay at all, or only pays interest on the loan.Also, a grace period means that at this time the bank has interest at the interest rate (of course, preferential) for the use of the provided credit funds.

In medicine, the incubation period is the time that elapses from the moment a microbe or bacterium enters the body until the first symptoms of a disease caused by this microbe or bacterium appear. You can also find other names: the latent period or the latent period.

In biology, the incubation period is the time that passes from the time of fertilization to the time of fruiting in some organisms, animals, and fish.

What is a billing period?

The settlement period is the time for which the consumer must pay for certain services without applying additional penalties to him. For example, the settlement period when paying utility bills, telephone and electricity is a month. As a rule, months are calculated billing periods and when paying a loan.

What is puberty

In fact, it is synonymous with the maturation of the young organism. The puberty period refers to changes in the child’s body, leading to its maturation, becoming an adult person. These are well-known physiological changes that are actively occurring during adolescence.As scientists have found, puberty begins at the moment when the brain of the child begins to send signals to the genitals, with the result that the latter begin to actively develop.

This is accompanied by other changes in the body, that is, the appearance of so-called secondary sexual characteristics - the shape changes, the voice of the boys breaks, etc.

What is the embryonic period

The embryonic period is the time when the initial development of the fetus or embryo occurs. It is often called the embryonic period. If we talk about a child, the embryonic period is the first 10 weeks of its development from the moment of conception.

On the other hand, often the embryonic period is called a period that covers the entire life of an individual before birth.

What is the circulation period

This term is most often used in astronomy. The orbital period is the period during which a celestial body (as a rule, a planet) makes a complete revolution around a star. Thus, the orbital period of the Earth around the Sun is 365 days or 1 year. The period of circulation is measured most often in years.

On the other hand, there is such an economic concept. In this case, we are talking about the period of circulation of banknotes. For example, for Soviet post-reform money, such a period of circulation was 30 years - from 1961 to 1991.
