1) Of, connected with, produced by → mechanics.
Fr.: énergie mécanique
Fr.: équilibre mécanique
1) The state of a → rigid body if, as viewed from an
→ inertial frame of rest: 1) the
→ linear acceleration of its
→ center of mass is zero, and 2) its
→ angular acceleration about any axis
fixed in this reference frame is zero. The center of mass may
be moving with constant velocity and the body may be rotating
about a fixed axis with constant angular velocity.
mechanical equivalent of heat
ham-arz-e mekâniki-ye garmâ (#)
Fr.: équivalent mécanique de chaleur
Same as → Joule's constant.
Fr.: mélange mécanique
tavân-e mekâniki (#)
Fr.: puissance mécanique
Fr.: système mécanique
1) Any system of elements that interact according to the laws of
→ mechanics (as distinguished from chemical,
electrical, thermal, etc.).
Fr.: vent mécanique
A process in which matter is shed into a → Keplerian disk from a star rotating at the → critical velocity. The disk is probably destroyed by the pressure exerted by the stellar radiation and finally matter is lost. Such a process seems to occur around → Be stars which are stars rotating at or very near the critical limit (Meynet et al. 2007, arXiv:0709.2275).
1) In a mechanical manner; by a mechanism.
quantum mechanical system
râžmân-e kuântom mekâniki
Fr.: système mécanique quantique
âpârgar-e mekânik-e kuântomi
Fr.: opérateur en mécanique quantique
A linear → Hermitian operator associated with a physical quantity.
