Examples of gaseous in a Sentence

  1. Mayor Yona Yahav:

    We are alone in this battle, there are a million people around this depot here. It is a gaseous material. It is very, very dangerous material.

  2. Robertson Davies:

    Comparatively few people know what a million dollars actually is. To the majority it is a gaseous concept, swelling or decreasing as the occasion suggests. In the minds of politicians, perhaps more than anywhere, the notion of a million dollars has this accordion-like ability to expand or contract; if they are disposing of it, the million is a pleasing sum, reflecting warmly upon themselves; if somebody else wants it, it becomes a figure of inordinate size, not to be compassed by the rational mind.

  3. Michael Grudi?:

    Understanding galaxy formation hinges on assumptions about Star Formation in Gaseous Environments, if we can understand Star Formation in Gaseous Environments, then we can understand galaxy formation. And by understanding galaxy formation, we can understand more about what the universe is made of. Understanding where we come from and how we're situated in the universe ultimately hinges on understanding the origins of stars.
