conservation of momentum
  پتایش ِ جنباک   
patâyeš-e jonbâk

Fr.: conservation de quantité de mouvement   

A fundamental law of physics which states that the momentum of a → physical system does not change in the course of time if there are no external forces acting on the system. It is embodied in → Newton's first law. This principle shows that the interaction of bodies composing a → closed system leads only to an exchange in momentum between the bodies but does not affect the motion of the system as a whole. More specifically, interactions between the composing bodies do not change the velocity of the system's → center of mass.

conservation; → momentum.

conservation of probability
  پتایش ِ شوانایی، پایندگی ِ ~   
-patâyeše šavânâyi, pâyandegi-ye ~

Fr.: conservation de probabilité   

A principle according to which the sum of probabilities of all possible states that might come out of an initial state equals the probability of the initial state.

conservation; → probability.
