Since the reaction rate coefficients are not known with high accuracy, an uncertainty factor (UF) of a reaction rate is employed to evaluate the degree of uncertainty in the reaction rate coefficients and is defined as
NT government lacks a proper system to timely evaluate a service and decide the funding continuity which triggers the uncertainty factor. However the dilemma of last-minute funding decisions is not only NT based but is Australia wide.
This crucial sector of the Brazilian economy, the second largest in the world, is highly fragmented, features low return margins and is subject to significant uncertainty factors. Confinement increases cattle fattening speed and when compared against maintenance in pasture it maximizes return on investment for farmers.
Schenk and Johanson [19] in 2010 performed a study on how the Scientific Committee on Occupational Exposure Limits (SCOEL) of the European Commission uses uncertainty factors when proposing health-based IOELVs.

"Moreover, with inflation being pushed higher by food and energy costs - possibly back up to 2.5 per cent in the next couple of months - the uncertainty factor may keep the MPC on hold for a couple of months."
