coal
  زغال‌سنگ   
zoqâlsang (#)

Fr.: charbon, houille   

A black, hard mineral consisting of carbon and various carbon compounds. Coal is formed from the decomposition of ancient plants buried deep in the Earth's crust for millions of years. It is currently the most widely used substance to generate electricity and heat. Its combustion products are used as raw material for a variety of products including cement, asphalt, and plastics. Due to the harmful gases that it releases, the use of coal is constantly being reduced as alternative fuels are found.

M.E. cole, from O.E. col "charcoal, live coal;" (cf. O.Fr. kole, M.Du. cole, Du. kool, O.H.G. chol, Ger. Kohle, from PIE root *g(e)u-lo- "live coal" (cf. Irish gual "coal").

From zoqâl, → charcoal, + sang, → stone.

It lies at a distance of approximately 500 → light-years.

Fr.: coalescence   

1) General: The act or state of growing together, as similar parts; the act of uniting by natural affinity or attraction; the state of being united.
2) Merging of the stars composing a → binary system after having undergone → supernova explosion.

Verbal noun from → coalesce.

coalescence model
  مدل ِ آهمش   
model-e âhameš

Fr.: modèle de coalescence   

A scenario for building up → massive stars through merging of → intermediate-mass protostars. It occurs in the cores of dense stellar clusters that have undergone core contraction due to rapid → accretion of gas with low → specific angular momentum. The required densities are, however, very high, 108 stars pc-3, which are extremely rare (Bonnell et al. 1998, MNRAS 298, 93).

Coathanger
  رخت‌آویز   
raxtâviz (#)

Fr.: amas du Cintre   

An open cluster of about 40 stars at the border of → Vulpecula and → Sagitta. It has an apparent size of about 1° and lies 420 → light-years away. Also called Collinder 399 and → Brocchi's Cluster. Six of its brighter stars, of sixth and seventh magnitude, are lined up in a nearly perfect row, from the center of which four stars form a hook to resemble the coathanger shape. To the naked eye, it appears as an unresolved patch first recorded by the Persian astronomer Sufi in A.D. 964. It was later rediscovered by Giovanni Battista Hodierna (1597-1660). The Coathanger shares roughly the same motion with several other clusters, including the → Pleiades.

coat; hanger, from hang, M.E. han(i)gen, fusion of O.E. hon "suspend" and hangian "be suspended;" also probably influenced by O.N. hengja "suspend" and hanga "be suspended" (cf. O.Frisian hangia, Du. hangen, Germ. hängen).

It has several radioactive isotopes, including Co-56, half-life about 77 days, Co-57, 272 days, Co-58, 71 days, Co-60, 5.27 years. The → light curve of → type I supernovae is explained by the radioactive decay of nickel-56 through cobalt-56 to iron-56.

From Ger. kobold "evil spirits or goblins," who were superstitiously thought to cause trouble for miners, since the mineral contained arsenic which injured their health and the metallic ores did not yield metals when treated with the normal methods.
