potential energy kâruž-e tavand Fr.: énergie potentielle Of a system, the work done in changing the system from some standard configuration to its present state. Thus, if a body of mass m is raised vertically through a height h, the work done, mgh, is the increase in potential energy. |
potential energy curve xam-e kâruž-e tavand Fr.: courbe de l'energie potentielle A plot that displays the → potential energy of a moving body as a function of its position. It is explained by the → conservation of energy and the conversion of potential energy into → kinetic energy and vice versa. |
potential field meydân-e tavand Fr.: champ de potentiel A field that has a → potential. A continuous → vector fieldA in a domain D is a potential field in D if and only if its → work around every closed curve C contained in D is zero: ∫A.ds = 0. Examples include the → gravitational field and the → electrostatic field. |
potential gradient zine-ye tavand Fr.: gradient de potentiel At a point, the rate of change of potential V, with distance x, measured in the direction in which the variation is a maximum. The intensity F of the field is proportional to the potential gradient, but is oppositely directed: F = -dV/dx. |
potential well câh-e tavand Fr.: puit de potentiel Region in a → field of force in which the potential decreases abruptly, and in the surrounding region of which the potential is larger. |
potentiality tavandi Fr.: potentialité 1) The state or quality of being potential. Something potential. |
potentially tavandâné Fr.: potentiellement With a possibility of becoming actual; possibly. |
potentially hazardous asteroid (PHA) seyyârak-e tavandâné âpenâk Fr.: astéroïde potentiellement dangereux An asteroid that could make a threatening close approach to the Earth. In technical terms a PHA is defined as having an → absolute magnitude of 22 or brighter and an → Earth Minimum Orbit Intersection Distance (MOID) of less than 0.05 → astronomical unit or 7.5 million km. → potentially; → hazardous; → asteroid. |
potentiometer tavandsanj Fr.: potentiomètre An instrument for measuring electrical quantities by balancing an unknown potential difference against a known potential difference. |
power tavân (#) Fr.: puissance, pouvoir 1) Physics: The → rate of doing
→ work on transferring → energy, as
expressed in ergs/sec, watts, etc. Same as → mechanical power. M.E. pouer(e), poer(e), from O.Fr. povoir, noun use of the infinitive in O.Fr., "to be able," from V.L. *potere, from L. potis "powerful, able, capable;" cognate with Av. paiti- "lord, husband;" Mod.Pers. -bad (sepah-bad "general, commander of an army"); Skt. pái- "master, husband;" Gk. posis "husband;" Lith. patis "husband." Tavân "power, strength," tavânestan "to be powerful, able;" Mid.Pers. tuwan "power, might," from O.Pers./Av. base tav- "to have power, to be strong, to be able," Av. tavah- "power," təviši- "strength," Mod.Pers. tuš, tâb "power, ability," O.Pers. tauman- "power, strength," tunuvant- "powerful," Skt. tu- "to be strong, to have authority," tavas-, tavisa- "strong, energetic," tavisi- "power, strength." |
power function karyâ-ye tavâni Fr.: fonction de puissance A function of the form f(x) = x^{n}, where n is a → real number. |
power law qânun-e tavâni (#) Fr.: loi de puissance A mathematical relationship between two quantities expressed by a → power function. |
power series seri-ye tavâni (#) Fr.: série de puissance A series in which the terms contain regularly increasing powers of a variable. In general, a_{0} + a_{1}x + a_{2}x^{2} + ... + a_{n}x^{n}, where a_{0}, a_{1}, etc. are constants. |
power spectral density cagâli-ye binâbi-ye tavân Fr.: densité spectrale de puissance Same as → spectral density. |
power spectrum binâb-e tavâni (#) Fr.: spectre de puissance The plot that gives the portion of a signal's power falling within given frequency bins. The most common way of generating a power spectrum is by using a discrete Fourier transform. |
power-law distribution vâbâžeš bâ qânun-e tavâni Fr.: distribution en loi de puissance For a → random variable X, any → distribution which has the form: P(X ≥ x) = (k/x)^{α}, where x is a value in the range defined for X, k > 0 is a parameter termed location parameter, and α > 0 is the → slope parameter. → power; → law; → distribution. |
power-law elliptical galaxy kahkešân-e beyzigun bâ qânun-e tavâni Fr.: galaxie elliptique en loi de puissance An → elliptical galaxy whose → surface brightness can be approximated by a single → power law at small radii (r ≤ 10-20''). More modern interpretations have emphasized that these profiles can be better understood as the inward continuation of the galaxy's overall → Sersic profile, usually modified by an additional, nuclear-scale stellar component (S. P. Rusli et al., 2013, AJ 146, 160). |
Poynting vector bordâr-e Poynting Fr.: vecteur de Poynting The amount of electromagnetic energy flowing through unit area, perpendicular to the direction of energy propagation, per unit time, given by (c/2 π)[E x H]. → Poynting's theorem. → Poynting's theorem; → vector. |
Poynting's theorem farbin-e Poynting Fr.: théorème de Poynting The space through which electromagnetic radiation passes is filled with electric and magnetic fields at right angles to each other and to the direction of propagation of the radiation. The rate of energy transfer is given by the Poynting vector. In honor of John Henry Poynting (1852-1914), English physicist; → theorem. |
Poynting-Robertson drag kerre-ye Poynting-Robertson Fr.: traînée de Poynting-Robertson A loss of → orbital angular momentum by tiny ring particles associated with their absorption and re-emission of → solar radiation. Also known as the → Poynting-Robertson effect (Ellis et al., 2007, Planetary Ring Systems, Springer). → Poynting-Robertson; → drag. |
