gaštmarz (#)

Fr.: tropopause   

The boundary between the → troposphere and → stratosphere. Its height, varying with latitude and seasons, is from 8 km at poles, to 18 km at equator; it is higher during winter time. The atmospheric temperature decreases from ground upward until the tropopause. Then it increases in stratosphere because of the absorption of solar ultraviolet radiation.

tropo- + pause "break, cessation, stop," from M.Fr. pause, from L. pausa "a halt, stop, cessation," from Gk. pausis "stopping, ceasing," from pauein "to stop, to cause to cease."

From gašt, → tropo-, + marz "frontier, border, boundary" (Mid.Pers. marz "boundary;" Av. marəza- "border, district," marəz- "to rub, wipe;" Mod.Pers. parmâs "contact, touching" (→ contact), mâl-, mâlidan "to rub;" PIE base *merg- "boundary, border;" cf. L. margo "edge" (Fr. marge "margin"); P.Gmc. *marko; Ger. Mark; E. mark, margin).


Fr.: troposphère   

The lower part of the Earth's atmosphere in which temperature decreases with height, except for local areas of → temperature inversion.

tropo- + → sphere.

Trouton's rule
  رزن ِ تروتون   
razan-e Trouton

Fr.: règle de Trouton   

The ratio of the → molar heat of vaporization of any liquid to its → boiling point is a constant, about 88 joules per mole per Kelvin. The rule is equivalent to the statement that the → entropy of vaporization is constant. It is not always followed, especially by liquids such as water in which hydrogen bonding occurs between the molecules.

Named after Frederick Thomas Trouton (1863-1922), an Irish physicist; → rule.

Trouton-Noble experiment
  آزمایش ِ تروتون-نوبل   
âzmâyeš-e Trouton-Noble

Fr.: expérience de Trouton-Noble   

An experiment first carried out in 1903 to reveal the absolute motion of the Earth with respect to the → ether. The experiment consists of detecting a torque on a charged parallel-plate → capacitor that was suspended so that its plates were vertical. Since the Earth moves around the Sun, the moving charges were expected to produce magnetic fields, and the resulting torque should tend to turn the capacitor bringing its plates parallel to its velocity. No such effect was observed, and the absence of the torque supports the theory of → special relativity.

Named after Frederick T. Trouton (1863-1922) and Henry R. Noble; → experiment.


Fr.: trève   

A suspension of hostilities for a specified period of time by mutual agreement of the warring parties (

M.E. triws, trewes, originally plural of trewe "faith, treaty," from O.E. treow "faith, truth, fidelity; promise," cf. O.Frisian triuwe, M.Du. trouwe, Du. trouw, O.H.G. triuwa, Ger. treue "faith, faithfulness." The Germanic word was borrowed into L.L. as tregua, hence Fr. trève.

Nâpard, literally "not war," from negation prefix nâ-, → un-, + pard, variant of vard in prefixed nabard, âvard "fight, struggle," ultimately from Proto-Ir. *part- "to fight, struggle," cf. Av. pərət- "to fight, struggle."

Râstin, from râst "right, true; just, upright, straight;" Mid.Pers. râst "true, straight, direct;" Soghdian rəšt "right;" O.Pers. rāsta- "straight, true," rās- "to be right, straight, true;" Av. rāz- "to direct, put in line, set," razan- "order;" cf. Skt. raj- "to direct, stretch," rjuyant- "walking straight;" Gk. orektos "stretched out;" L. regere "to lead straight, guide, rule," p.p. rectus "right, straight;" M.E.; O.E. reht, riht; cf. O.H.G. reht, Ger. recht, O.N. rettr, Goth. raihts; PIE base *reg- "move in a straight line," hence, "to direct, rule."

true anomaly
  ناسانی ِ راستین   
nâsâni-ye râstin

Fr.: anomalie vraie   

One of the standard → orbital elements, which is the angle measured at the → focus nearest the → periapsis of an elliptical orbit, between the periapsis and the → radius vector from the focus to the orbiting body.

true; → anomaly.

true celestial equator
  هموگار ِ آسمانی ِ راستین   
hamugâr-e âsmâni-ye râstin

Fr.: équateur céleste vrai   

The → celestial equator of date, which is the → great circle on the → celestial sphere perpendicular to the instantaneous axis of rotation of the Earth. Its interaction with the → ecliptic defines the → vernal equinox of date and the → autumnal equinox of date.

true; → celestial; → equator.

true celestial pole
  قطب ِ آسمانی ِ راستین   
qotb-e âsmâni-ye râstin

Fr.: pôle céleste vrai   

The direction of the Earth's instantaneous rotation pole. It differs from the pole due to the short time-scale (days or decades) variations called → nutation.

true; → celestial; → pole.

true equator
