Where heav'nly pasture grows,
Where living waters gently pass,

In science:

The ridged waveguides are machined into the cell, the slots by wire etching, the waveguide by milling. The SiC wedges are fixed with a specially designed clamp, avoiding thermal strains during brazing. Water cooling channels and dimple tuning are provided. The complete structure is brazed vertically and in one pass.

Carnot reasons by analogy with a machine that works at the expense of water passing from a higher to a lower level reservo ir.
The Energy-Entropy Principle
If the water could, by it self, pass into a higher level we would have a perpetual machine.
The Energy-Entropy Principle
Carnot associates the heat (or caloric) passing between two sources at different temperatures with the water falling between the two levels. The quantity of water falling to the lower level reservo ir is equal to the one coming out of the higher level reservo ir.
The Energy-Entropy Principle
The purity of the liquid Argon before passing through the OXYSORB cartridge has a nominal concentration of water and Oxygen of the order of the ppm.

The tra jectories provide insights into the specificity mechanism by which the channel allows water, but not ions, to pass.
Biological and synthetic membranes: What can be learned from a coarse-grained description?
In most cases the membrane is designed to allow only water to pass through this dense layer while preventing the passage of solutes (such as salt ions).
Extraction of Freshwater and Energy from Atmosphere
Thus heated, the water is passed to another container known as a "stage", where the surrounding pressure is lower than that in the brine heater.
Extraction of Freshwater and Energy from Atmosphere
The bars, which operate at ~1800 K and radiate the power dissipated in them to water-cooled walls, are connected to a pair of chains that propel and guide them through the solenoids. If there are ~500 bars on the chains, each target bar passes through the beam only one million times in one year of operation.
