Planck constant pâyâ-ye Planck (#) Fr.: constante de Planck A physical constant that determines the energy of quantum as a function of its frequency; symbol h. Also called → Planck's constant. On 16 November 2018, the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) voted to redefine the kilogram by fixing the value of the Planck constant, thereby defining the kilogram in terms of the second and the speed of light. Starting 20 May 2019, the new value is exactly 6.626 070 15 × 10^{-34} J s. The → reduced Planck constant, ħ = h / 2π, is also called the → Dirac constant. |
reduced Planck constant pâyâ-ye Planck-e bâzhâzidé Fr.: constante de Planck réduite The → Planck constant divided by 2π and denoted ħ, pronounced h-bar. Also called the → Dirac constant. Reduced, p.p. of → reduce; → Planck's constant. |
