The NCN denotes a technical property of the specified object, and the CN a parameter specifying this property: Electrons have mass. (NCN) The particles acquire energy. (NCN) The wire has resistance. u. (CN) … kinetic energies of 5eV. 1 ohm. (CN) Nevertheless, it is not advisable for the reader to seek sweeping generalisations. Similar statements can refer to the same conception: The mass of the comet is rapidly decreasing. (CN) The comet is rapidly losing mass. (NCN) or have very different connotations: Opposite charge attracts.
