equatorial bulge
  بر‌آمدگی ِ هموگاری   
barâmadegi-ye hamugâri

Fr.: bourrelet équatorial   

The excess of the Earth's equatorial diameter over the polar diameter.

equatorial; bulge, from O.Fr. bouge "leather bag," from L. bulga "leather bag," of Gaulish origin.

Barâmadegi, from barâmadan "to grow out; to emerge," from bar- "on, upon, up" (Mid.Pers. abar, O.Pers. upariy "above; over, upon, according to," Av. upairi "above, over," upairi.zəma- "located above the earth;" cf. Gk. hyper- "over, above;" L. super-; O.H.G. ubir "over;" PIE base *uper "over") + âmadan "to come" (Mid.Pers. âmadan; O.Pers. gam- "to come; to go;" Av. gam- "to come; to go," jamaiti "goes;" cf. Skt. gamati "goes;" Gk. bainein "to go, walk, step;" L. venire "to come;" Tocharian A käm- "to come;" O.H.G. queman "to come;" E. come; PIE root *gwem- "to go, come").

equatorial coordinate system
  راژمان ِ هماراهای ِ هموگاری   
râžmân-e hamârâhâ-ye hamugâri

Fr.: système de coordonnées équatoriales   

An astronomical → coordinate system for indicating the positions of → celestial objects on the → celestial sphere. The system consists of two components, → right ascension and → declination. Right ascension is the angle between the → vernal equinox and the point where the → hour circle intersects the → celestial equator. The right ascension is always measured eastward from the vernal equinox, in the units of hours, minutes, and seconds. Declination is the angle between the celestial equator and the position of the star measured along the star's hour circle. It is measured in degrees, minutes, and seconds north or south of the celestial equator. By definition, the vernal equinox is located at right ascension 0h and declination 0°. Equatorial coordinates change with time due to the → precession of the Earth's → rotation axis.

equatorial; → coordinate; → system.

equatorial wind
  باد ِ هموگاری   
bâd-e hamugâri

Fr.: vent équatorial   

A slow, dense → stellar wind (high → mass loss rate) emanating from equatorial regions of a → B[e] star. The equatorial and → polar winds are the two main wind components in B[e] stars. The mechanism suggested to explain this wind morphology is the rotationally induced → bistability mechanism.

A prefix meaning "equal," as in → equinox, → equilibrium, → equipartition.

Hamug-, → equal.

  هموگ-آسه   
hamug-âsé

Fr.: équiaxe   

Math.: having three axes of the same length. Also equiaxed.
Physics: A crystal exhibiting similar dimensions in all directions.

  سه‌بر ِ سه-پهلو-برابر   
sebar-e sé-pahlu-barâbar (#)

Fr.: triangle équilatéral   

A triangle having three equal sides.

equi-, → lateral, → triangle.

Sé-pahlu-barâbar, from , → three, pahlu, → side, barâbar, → equal.

equilibrium
  ترازمندی   
tarâzmandi (#)

Fr.: équilibre   

A state of balance or rest between the forces operating on or within a physical system. → stable equilibrium; → unstable equilibrium; → dynamical equilibrium.

From L. æquilibrium, from æquus, → equal + libra "a balance, scale."

Tarâzmandi, noun of tarâzmand "in equilibrium," from tarâz "level; a level" + possession suffix -mand. The first component from tarâzu "balance, scales," Mid.Pers. tarâzên-, taraênidan "to weigh;" Proto-Iranian *tarāz-, from *tarā- "balance, scale" (cf. Skt. tulā- "scales, balance, weight," from tul- "to weigh, make equal in weight, equal," tolayati "weighs, balances;" L. tollere "to raise;" Gk. talanton "balance, weight," Atlas "the Bearer" of Heaven;" Lith. tiltas "bridge;" PIE base telə- "to lift, weigh") + Av. az- "to convey, conduct, drive," azaiti drives" (cf. Skt. aj- "to dive, sling," ájati "drives," ajirá- "agile, quick;" Gk. agein "to lead, guide, drive, carry off;" L. agere "to do, set in motion, drive," from PIE root *ag- "to drive, move," → act).

One of the two points of intersection of the ecliptic and the celestial equator. Same as equinox.

equinox
  هموگان
