induced electric field
meydân-e barqi-ye darhâzidé, ~ ~ darhâxté
Fr.: champ électric induit
An electric field created by the variation of a magnetic field. The induced electric field lines are usually perpendicular to the changing magnetic field that produces them.
gosil-e darhâxté, ~ darhâzidé
Fr.: émission induite
The emission of radiation from an atom when it is bombarded by photons. The induced radiation has the same wavelength and direction as the bombarding radiation. Same as → stimulated emission.
šekâft-e darhâzidé, ~ darhâxté
Fr.: fission induite
Fission which takes place when a nucleon is bombarded with neutrons or high-energy radiation (gamma rays).
The property of an electric circuit, or of two neighboring circuits, by virtue of which an electromotive force is induced in one circuit by a change of current in either of them.
1) General: The act of inducing, bringing about, or causing.
Verbal noun of → induce.
Fr.: bobine d'induction
A device for producing high-voltage pulses by means of → electromagnetic induction. It consists of a primary coil of a few turns of wire, wound on an iron core, and insulated from a secondary coil of many turns which surrounds it coaxially. The current in the primary, which is interrupted periodically, sets up a magnetic field, first big, then zero. This changing field induces a large voltage in the secondary.
Fr.: équation d'induction
In magnetohydrodynamics, an equation that describes the transport of plasma and magnetic
field lines over time:
Fr.: champ d'induction
A component of an electromagnetic field which is the region close to the source (an antenna) where steady-state magnetic and electrostatic forces can be detected. → radiation field.
Of, relating to, or using → induction. induction
Fr.: induction, raisonnement inductif
Reasoning from detailed facts to general principles.
Fr.: bobine d'induction
A coil of wire used to introduce inductance into an electric circuit.
Agent noun of → induce.
Sorxpust (#), Hendi (#)
The American Indian. A faint, southern constellation (right ascension: 21 hours, declination: -55 degrees), supposed to represent an American native Indian. It was introduced in the 1603 star atlas of Johann Bayer and contains no stars brighter than the third magnitude. Abbreviation: Ind; genitive: Indi.
Indus "an Indian," from L., from Gk. Indos "the Indus River, an Indian."
Sorxpust "red skin," the term coming from the reddish skin color of some native
Americans, from sorx, → red, + pust "skin," from Mid.Pers.
pôst "skin;" Av. pastô-, in pastô.fraθanhəm "of
the breadth of the skin."
Fr.: collision inélastique
A collision between bodies in which there is a loss of total kinetic energy.
Fr.: diffusion inélastique
1) A statement of the form a ≠ b, a > b, or a < b, asserting one quantity
is greater than or less than another quantity. → equality.
Having no inherent power of action, motion, or resistance (opposed to active).
Inert, from Fr. inerte, from L. inertem "unskilled, inactive," from → in- "without" + ars (gen. artis) "skill."
Laxt "sluggish, inert."
Fr.: gaz rare, ~ inerte
Any one of six gases helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon, and radon, all of whose atomic shells contain complete numbers of electrons so that the atoms are almost completely chemically inactive. Same as noble gases.
Tendency of a body to preserve its state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line.
Inertia, from L. inertia "un-skillfulness, idleness," from iners (gen. inertis) "unskilled, inactive;" → inert.
Laxti "sluggishness, inertia."
Fr.: ellipsoïde d'inertie
An ellipsoid used in describing the motion of a rotating rigid body. It is stationary with respect to the rotating body, and is determined by the body's moments of inertia.
Fr.: inertiel, d'inertie
Of or relating to inertia.
Laxt, adj. of laxti, → inertia
