It comes down on the outside, forming a drop which will fall into the liquid below.Another drop will form - and so on - until the cup is empty.Many ordinary liquids, like alcohol or petroleum, creep up solid walls, driven by their surface tension.…
That was the only thing that ever sobered it.I had called, and had been shown into the empty drawing-room.…Cited from Second Thoughts of An Idle Fellow, by Jerome
This convention simplifies and accelerates some list-handling algorithms, by ensuring that all links can be safely dereferenced and that every list (even one that contains no data elements) always has a "first" and "last" node.An empty list is a list that contains no data records.This is usually the same as saying that it has zero nodes.…
Buildings and property were later sold at auction.The campus has sat empty since that time and all but two of the buildings are gone.Large portions of the 1973 Tom Sawyer film was filmed at the Dalton Cut-Off, especially footage that featured shots of Tom and Huck's adventures on Missouri River.…

For example, the sum of the elements of the empty set is zero, but the product of the elements of the empty set is one (see empty product).Ultimately, the results of these operations say more about the operation in question than about the empty set.For instance, zero is the identity element for addition, and one is the identity element for multiplication.…
