Fr.: arranger, ranger
1) To set in a rank or row. To put in order.
Rezgidan "to set in a row," from Lori rezg "row," related to râst, → right, Av. rāz- "to direct, draw a line;" probably ultimately from Proto-Ir. *Hrazaka- "row."
The act of arranging or being arranged. Result or manner of arranging.
Verbal noun of → arrange.
Fr.: principe d'Alembert-Lagrange
The ratio of the maximum to minimum signal levels present in an image. For instance, a true 12-bit digital camera is capable of providing a dynamic range of 4096 to 1.
Fr.: équation de Lagrange
A set of second order → differential equations for a system of particles which relate the kinetic energy of the system to the → generalized coordinates, the generalized forces, and the time. If the motion of a → holonomic system is described by the generalized coordinates q1, q2, ..., qn and the → generalized velocities q.1, q.2, ..., q.n, the equations of the motion are of the form: d/dt (∂T/∂q.i) - ∂T/∂q.i = Qi (i = 1, 2, ..., n), where T is the kinetic energy of the system and Qi the generalized force.
1) A globose berry with a yellowish to reddish-orange rind and a sweet edible pulp.
M.E., from O.Fr. orange, orenge, from M.L. pomum de orenge, from It. arancia, originally narancia, alteration of Ar. nâranj, from Pers. nârang, from Skt. narangah "orange tree."
Nârenji, from nârenj "orange," as above.
1) bord; (#) 2), 3) gostaré (#)
Fr.: 1) portée; 2), 3) étendue
1) Physics: The maximum distance a projectile travels.
M.E., from O.Fr. range "range, rank," from rangier "to place in a row, arrange," from reng "row, line."
1) Bord past stem of bordan "to carry, transport"
O.Pers./Av. bar- "to bear, carry," barəθre "to bear
(infinitive)," Skt. bharati "he carries," Gk. pherein,
L. fero "to carry;" PIE base *bher- "to carry").
Fr.: domain spectral
The observable spectral range provided by a spectroscope, as determined by the grating dispersion, camera focal length, and detector size.
Unusual, not expected, extraordinary. → strange particle.
M.E., from O.Fr. estrange "foreign, alien," from L. extraneus "foreign, external," from extra "outside of," → extra-.
Šegeft, from Mid.Pers. škaft, škift, škuft "strange, wonderful, amazing;" Av. skapta- "wonderful."
Fr.: particule étrange
An elementary particle created in high-energy particle collisions having a short life and a strangeness quantum number of 1. For example, sigma and xi baryons are strange particles. A strange particle is produced when a strange quark is created in a high-energy collision. → strangeness.
A quantum number used to describe certain short-lived particles. It is defined as the number of strange anti-quarks minus the number of strange quarks in a particle. Strangeness is conserved in any strong and electromagnetic interaction, but not in weak interactions.
Strangeness, the quality or condition of being → strange.
