corpuscle
  کرپول   
karpul

Fr.: corpuscule   

A discrete particle, such as a → photon or an → electron. See also → corpuscular radiation, → corpuscular theory of light.

From L. corpusculum, dim. of corpus "body," cf. Av. kehrp-, kərəf- "body, form," Skt. krp- "body, form," O.E. hrif "belly," O.H.G. href "womb, belly, abdomen;" Ger. Körper (originally Korper) is a loan word from L. corpus; PIE *kwrpes, from base *kwrep- "body, form." → -ule.

  تابش ِ کرپولی   
tâbeš-e karpuli

corpuscular theory of light
  نگره‌ی ِ کرپولی ِ نور   
negare-ye karpuli-ye nur

Fr.: théorie corpusculaire de la lumière   

Newton's theory according to which light is made up of point-like particles without any mass. It failed to explains several phenomena: simultaneous reflection and refraction at a semi-transparent boundary, interference, diffraction and polarization. Moreover, it requested that the speed of light be greater in a denser medium than in a rarer medium; this prediction is contrary to experimental results. In 1924 Louis de Broglie postulated that matter has not only a corpuscular nature but also a wave nature, and subsequent experiments confirmed de Broglie's model.

Corpuscular, adj. from → corpuscle; → theory, → light.

1) aršâ; 2) aršâyidan

Fr.: 1) correct; 2) corriger   

1) Free from error; conforming to an acknowledged or accepted standard or fact; true or accurate.
2) To remove the errors or mistakes from. → bolometric correction, → correcting plate, → correction, → corrector, → ionization correction factor, → K correction, → Malmquist correction, → Rydberg correction, → wavefront correction.

From L. correctus, p.p. of corrigere "make straight, put right," from → com- intens. prefix + regere "to guide, direct, rule," cf. Av. raz- "to direct, lead," razišta- "straightest, most correct," erezu- "correct, straight," râzayeiti "directs," O.Pers. râs- "to be right, straight, true," râsta- "staright, true," Mod.Pers. râst "right, straight, true," Skt. raj- "to direct, stretch," rjuyant- "walking straight," Gk. orektos "stretched out," Ger. recht, E. right; PIE base *reg- "right, just; to move in a straight line."

O.Pers. arta- "law, justice," Skt. rta- "cosmic order," Gk. arti "just," artios "complete;" PIE base ar- "to fit together, join."

Note: For the sake of clarity, we avoid the Persian term dorost because its dominant meaning is "entire, complete, whole, safe, sound," although it means also "accurate, correct." Etymology: Mid.Pers. drust "straight, right, healthy," drôd "health, thriving," Parthian rwd "health, thriving," O.Pers. duruva- "firm, certain, immune," Av. drava- "healthy," Skt. dhruva- "fixed, firm, lasting," druh- "to be firm," Proto-Iranian *druua-.
