qânun-e bardâyeši-ye šavânâyi

Fr.: loi additive de probabilité   

If E1, E2, ..., En are n → mutually exclusive events, then the probability of occurrence of at least one of them is the sum of their individual probabilities: P(E1 + E2 + ... + En) = P(E1) + P(E2) + ... + P(En).

Adhara (ε Canis Majoris)
  عذارا

Fr.: Adhara   

A binary star, in the constellation → Canis Major, 470 → light-years distant from Earth. The main star possesses an apparent magnitude of +1.5 and belongs to the spectral classification B2 II. The +7.5 magnitude companion star is 7''.5 apart from the main star.

Adhara, from Ar. adhârâ "virgins," plural of adhrâ' "virgin".

Azârâ, from Ar. Adhara.

adhere
  آدوسیدن   
âdusidan

Fr.: adhérer   

1) To stay attached; stick fast; cling.
2) Physics: (of two or more dissimilar substances) to be united by a molecular force acting in the area of contact (→ adhesion).

From M.Fr. adhérer or directly from L. adhaerere "to stick to," from → ad- + haerere "to stick."

Âdusidan, from intensive/nuance prefix â- + dusidan (Dehxodâ) "to stick, to adhere," maybe related to Proto-Ir. *dauc- "to sew;" Pers. duxtan, duz- "to sew."

adherence
  آدوسی   
âdusi

Fr.: adhérence   

1) The act or state of adhering; adhesion.
2) The quality of adhering; steady devotion, support, or attachment (Dictionary.com).

adhere + -ence, → -ance.

adherent
  آدوسنده   
âdusandé

Fr.: adhérent   

1) A person who follows or upholds a leader, cause, etc.; supporter; follower.
2) Sticking; clinging; adhering (Dictionary.com).

From O.Fr. adherent or directly from L. adhaerentem pr.p. of adhaerere "to stick to," → adhere.

Âdusandé, from âdusidan, → adhere.

adhesion
  آدوسش   
âduseš

Fr.: adhésion   

1) The act or state of adhering; state of being adhered or united.
2) Steady or devoted attachment, support, etc.; adherence.
3) Physics: The molecular force of attraction in the area of contact between unlike bodies that acts to hold them together (Dictionary.com). See also → cohesion.

Verbal noun from → adhere; → -tion.

adhesive
  آدوسنده، آدوسشی   
âdusandé, âduseši

Fr.: adhésif   

1) Of or pertaining to the molecular force → adhesion.
2) A substance used for sticking objects or materials together; glue.

Adjective from → adhere.

adhesive force
  نیروی ِ آدوسش   
niru-ye âduseš

Fr.: force adhésive   

The force of → attraction between molecules of different substances; for example, the force between the molecules of a solid and a liquid. When water is poured on clean glass, it tends to spread, forming a thin, uniform film over the surface. This is because the adhesive forces between water and glass are strong enough to pull the water molecules out of their spherical formation and hold them against the surface of the glass, thus avoiding the repulsion between like molecules.

adhesive; → force.

Adhil
  ذیل   
Zeyl

Fr.: Adhil   

A → late-type → giant star of → spectral type K0-IIIb in → Andromeda. Other designations: ξ (Xi) Andromedae, HR 390, and HD 8207. → Visual magnitude = 4.88, B - V = +1.08.

From Ar. Al-dhayl "skirt of a garment; tail."

adiabatic
  بی‌دررو   
bidarrow (#)

Fr.: adiabatique   

A → thermodynamic process that occurs without → loss or → gain of → heat.
See also: → adiabatic change, → adiabatic index, → adiabatic initial conditions, → adiabatic phase, → adiabatic process, → adiabatic shock, → adiabatic temperature gradient, → superadiabatic temperature gradient.

From Gk. adiabatos "impassable," from a- "not" + diabatos "passable," from diabainein "to go across," from dia- " through" + bainein "to go."

Bidarrow from bi- "not; without" + darrow "way out," from dar "out" + row "to go, going," from raftan "to go."

adiabatic change
  دگرشد ِ بی‌دررو، دگرش ِ ~   
degaršod-e bidarrow, degareš-e ~

Fr.: changement adiabatique   

A change taking place in a system that has perfect thermal insulation, so that heat cannot enter or leave the system and energy can only be transferred by work.

adiabatic; → change.

adiabatic index
  دیشن ِ بی‌دررو   
dišan-e bidarrow

Fr.: indice adiabatique   

Of a gas, the ratio of its → specific heat at constant pressure to its specific heat at constant volume: γ = CP/ CV.

  بوتارهای ِ آغازین ِ بی‌دررو   
butârhâ-ye âqâzin-e bidarrow

Fr.: conditions initiales adiabatiques   

The assumption whereby the density fluctuations in the very → early Universe would be produced by compressing or decompressing of all components of a homogeneous Universe.

adiabatic temperature gradient
  زینه‌ی ِ دمای ِ بی‌دررو   
zine-ye damâ-ye bidarrow

Fr.: gradient de température adiabatique   

The temperature gradient defining the → radiative equilibrium condition in a region. It is expressed as: dT/dr = (1 - 1/ γ)((T / P)(dP / dr), where T and P are temperature and pressure, dT / dr and dP / dr temperature and pressure gradients respectively, and γ = CP / CV. For radiative equilibrium to be stable against → convection, the actual temperature gradient must be less than the adiabatic temperature gradient, i.e. |dT /dr|rad < |dT /dr|ad.

adjective
  زابه
