decay mode
  ترز ِ تباهی، مد ِ ~   
tarz-e tabâhi, mod-e ~

Fr.: mode de désintégration   

A possible type of decay of a → radionuclide or → elementary particle. In general, a given particle may decay by more than one decay mode. Usually the number of decay modes is one or two. There are, however, → nuclides which have many decay modes; for example the nuclide 11Li has seven decay modes.

decay; → mode.

decay product
  فر‌آورده‌ی ِ تباهی   
farâvarde-ye tabâhi

Fr.: produit de désintégration   

A → stable nuclide or → radioactive nuclide formed by the → disintegration of a → radioactive isotope, either directly or as a result of a → decay chain. Also called → daughter product. For example, the decay product of 238U is 206Pb, after passing through the following chain: 238U → 234Th (4.5 billion yr) → 234Pa (24 days) → 234U (1 min) → 230Th (245,000 yr) → 226Ra (76,000 yr) → 222Rn (1,600 yr) → 218Po (3.8 d) → 214Pb (3 m) → 214Bi (27 m) → 214Po (160 microseconds) → 210Pb (22 yr) → 210Bi (5 d) → 210Po (138 d) → 206Pb.

decay; → product.

vâšetâb (#)

Fr.: décéleration   

The act or process of moving, or of causing to move, with decreasing speed. Sometimes called negative acceleration.

Verbal noun of decelerate.

deceleration parameter
  پارامون ِ واشتاب   
pârâmun-e vâšetâb

Fr.: paramètre de décéleration   

A parameter designating the rate at which the expansion of the Universe would slow down owing to the braking gravitational effect of the matter content of the Universe. It is expressed by: q(t) = -R(t)R ..(t)/R .2(t), where R(t) represents the size of the Universe at time t. See also → expansion parameter; compare with → acceleration parameter.

deceleration; → parameter.

desi- (#)

Fr.: déci-   

Prefix used in the metric system to mean on-tenth.

From Fr. déci-, from L. decimus "tenth," from decem "ten," cf. Av. dasa "ten," Mod.Pers. dah "ten," Gk. deka, Skt. dasa, PIE *dekm (Dan. ti, Du. tien, Ger. zehn, E. ten, Fr. dix).

Desi-, from Fr. déci-, as above.

decibel (dB)
desibel (#)

Fr.: décibel   

A dimensionless unit used to express relative difference in power or intensity, usually between two acoustic or electric signals. It is defined as n [dB] = 10 log (P1/P0), with → natural logarithm. One decibel equals one-tenth of a → bel (B).

deci-; → bel (B).


Fr.: décider   

To make a choice or come to a conclusion about something. → decision, → rule of decision.

M.E. deciden, from O.Fr. decider, from L. decidere "to decide, determine," literally "to cut off," from → de-"off" + caedere "to cut, chop, beat, hew."

Vâsunidan, from vâ- "off, away," → de-, + sun "to cut;" cf. Kurd. Soriani su, sun "to sharpen, whet;" Kurd. Kurmanji (prefixed ha-, contraction of *ham-) hasun "to sharpen, whet;" Mod.Pers. sân "whetstone," variants fasân, afsân, awsân; Av. si-, sā- "to cut;" cf. Skt. śā- "to sharpen, whet;" + -idan infinitive suffix.


Fr.: décideur

Fr.: décimal   

Referring to or based in the number 10; relating to tens or tenths.

M.L. decimalis "of tithes or tenths," from L. decimus "tenth," from decem, → ten.

Dahi , of or relating to dah, → ten; dahdahi literally "ten by ten."

decimal fraction
