Definitions for "Droop"
the slope of the graph of speed vs. load for a loco. This variable is used to calculate speed corrections made when scaleable speed stabilization is used to manage the effects of load on the loco's speed.
Occurs when the actual system temperature stabilizes at some value below the desired setpoint. If system droop is unacceptable, a common solution is the use of a control incorporating an automatic or manual reset feature.
The amount a regulator deviates below its setpoint as flow increases. Some regulators exhibit boost instead of droop.

Droop is the distance the wheel drops from normal ride height when the car is lifted off the ground. Adjustment is either via droop screws in the wishbones that rest on the chassis; or spacers under the shock piston inside the shocks. Droop is another tuning aid and can have a dramatic effect on handling. Report this Word Added by: RC-Drift UK

a shape that sags; "there was a sag in the chair seat"
Quota - Used in highest average list PR and STV electoral systems to determine how seats are awarded. The threshold is intended to be the lowest vote total that only the winning number of candidates can get. The quota is ascertained by the following formula: total vote divided by the number of seats plus one, then one is added to the product. [Note: If, however, choice voting with fractional transfers is used, the quota is ascertained by the following formula: total vote divided by the number of seats plus one, then a pre-determined small fraction of a whole vote is added to the product (ie: .01 or .001 votes). The addition of this small fraction is intended to ensure that only the desired number of can reach the treshold, while using a whole number would raise the treshold too high. The additional fraction to be used should be determined in advance of the election.
