ânâlas-e vâmuni, ânâkâvi-ye ~
Fr.: analyse dimensionnelle
A technique used in physics based on the fact that the various terms in a
physical equation must have identical → dimensional formulae
if the equation is to be true for all consistent systems of unit. Its main uses are:
Fr.: formule dimensionnelle
Symbolic representation of the definition of a physical quantity obtained from its units of measurement. For example, with M = mass, L = length, T = time, area = L2, velocity = LT-1, energy = ML2T-2. → dimensional analysis.
Fr.: quantité sans dimension
A quantity without an associated → physical dimension. Dimensionless quantities are defined as the ratio of two quantities with the same dimension. The magnitude of such quantities is independent of the system of units used. A dimensionless quantity is not always a ratio; for instance, the number of people in a room is a dimensionless quantity. Examples include the → Alfven Mach number, → Ekman number, → Froude number, → Mach number, → Prandtl number, → Rayleigh number, → Reynolds number, → Richardson number, → Rossby number, → Toomre parameter. See also → large number.
→ dimension + -less M.E. from O.E. læs (adv.), læssa (adj.), akin to O.Fr. les "less."

An electronic component with two active terminals, an → anode and a → cathode, through which current passes in one direction (from anode to cathode) and is blocked in the opposite direction. Diodes have many uses, including conversion of → alternating current to → direct current, regulation of votage, and the decoding of audio-frequency signals from radio signals.
→ di- "two, twice, double," + hodos "way."
