Fr.: propulseur   

A propelling agent. A substance, usually a mixture of fuel and oxidizer, for propelling a rocket.

From → propel + suffix -ant.

Pišrâné, from pišrândan, → propel.

proper
  سره   
saré (#)

Fr.: propre   

Belonging or pertaining exclusively or distinctly to a person, thing, or group. → proper mass; → proper motion; → proper time.

M.E., from O.Fr. propre, from L. proprius "one's own."

Saré "pure; principal."

proper distance
  اپست ِ سره   
apest-e saré

Fr.: distance propre   

A distance between two nearby events in the frame in which they occur at the same time. It is the distance measured by a ruler at the time of observation. Hence, for a cosmological time t, Dproper = DC . a(t), where DC is the → comoving distance, and a(t) is the → scale factor. In the present epoch a = a(tobs) = 1, and Dproper = DC.

proper; → distance.

proper mass
  جرم ِ سره   
jerm-e saré

Fr.: masse propre   

Same as → rest mass.

proper; → mass.

proper motion
  جنبش ِ سره   
jonbeš-e saré

Fr.: mouvement propre   

The apparent motion of a star across the sky (not including a star's parallax), arising from the star's velocity through space with respect to the Sun. Proper motion is usually tabulated in star catalogs as changes in right ascension and declination per year or century. See also: → proper motion distance.

proper; → motion.

proper motion distance
  دورای ِ جنبش ِ سره   
durâ-ye jonbeš-e saré

Fr.: distance mouvement propre   

The distance derived from the → proper motion of an object. If an object has a known → transverse velocity  u, and has an observed angular motion of dθ/dt, then the proper motion distance is defined as: d = u/(dθ/dt).

proper; → motion; → distance

proper subset
  زیرهنگرد ِ سره   
zirhangard-e saré

Fr.: sous-ensemble propre   

Of two sets A and B, the set A if it is contained in B (A ⊂ B) but is not equal to B (A ≠ B).

proper; → subset.

proper time
  زمان ِ سره   
zamân-e saré (#)

Fr.: temps propre   

In general relativity, the time as measured on a clock that travels with the observer in the same system. An accelerated clock will measure shorter time intervals between events than a non-accelerated clock between the same events. → twin paradox.

proper; → time.

property
  داراک   
dârâk

Fr.: propriété   

1) General: An essential or distinctive attribute or quality of a thing.
2) Physics: A quantity, such as length, mass, pressure, temperature, or volume, that relates to the state of a system and can be expressed in numbers obtained from well-defined measurement operations.

From M.E. propriete "ownership, something owned, one's own nature," from M.Fr. propriété, from L. proprietas "ownership, property, propriety," literally "special character," noun of quality from proprius "one's own, special."

Dârâk "thing owned," from dâr present stem of dâštan "to have, to possess" + -âk (on the model of xorâk, pušâk, kâvâk).

proplyd
  پروپلید   
proplid

Fr.: proplyde   

A circumstellar disk of dense gas and dust surrounding a young newly formed star, a T Tauri star or Herbig star. In particular, an externally ionized protoplanetary disk seen in emission in the Orion Nebula. → silhouette disk.

Contraction of protoplanetarydisk.

proportion
  برپارش

Fr.: proportion   

Comparative relation between things, sizes, quantities, numbers, parts, etc.
Math.: A statement of the equality of two ratios.
