Hygro-, from Gk, combining form of hygros "wet, moist."
Nam "humidity, moisture" + -negâšt, → -gram. The first component nam, from Mid.Pers. nam, namb "moisture;" Av. napta- "moist," nabās-câ- "cloud," nabah- "sky;" cf. Skt. nábhas- "moisture, cloud, mist;" Gk. nephos "cloud, mass of clouds," nephele "cloud;" L. nebula "mist," nimbus "rainstorm, rain cloud;" O.H.G. nebul; Ger. Nebel "fog;" O.E. nifol "dark;" from PIE *nebh- "cloud, vapor, fog, moist, sky."
The graphical record made by a → hygrograph.
An instrument that records the hygrometer's measure of water vapor.
An instrument that measures the relative humidity of the air.
A member of a class of equations of state used in some models concerned with the evolution of a hypothetical supermassive star. The supermassive star is assumed to consist of a → convective core, which obeys a → polytropic law, and an envelope, which contains most of the whole mass, and follows the hylotropic → equation of state. This equation is expressed by P = A ρ4/3Mα, where A is a constant, ρ the density, M the mass, and α an index. First introduced by Mitchell C. Begelman (2010, MNRAS 402, 673).
Physical chemistry: Describing a substance that is capable of undergoing a change in phase (as from a liquid to a gas), with no change in chemical composition. If the substance is hylotropic over a limited range of pressure and temperatures, it is a pure chemical substance. If it is hylotropic over all pressure and temperatures except the most extreme ones, it is a → chemical element. See also → hylotrope.
First suggested by Wilhelm Ostwald (1904, in Annalen der Naturphilosophie 3, 355), from Gk. hylo-, combining form of hyle "matter; wood," because of the dependence on the composition, + → -tropic.
Physical chemistry: The fact or condition of being → hylotropic.
1) abar- (#); 2) hiper- (#)
From Gk. hyper, preposition and adverb, "over, beyond, overmuch, above;" cognate with L. super- and Pers. abar-, as below.
1) 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."
A two-branched open curve, a type of conic section, defined as the intersection between a right circular conical surface and a plane which cuts through both halves of the cone.
From Gk. hyperbole "excess, exaggeration" literally "a throwing beyond," from hyperballein "to throw over or beyond," from → hyper- "beyond" + bol-, nom. stem of ballein "to throw."
Hozluli, loanword from Ar.
Of or pertaining to a → hyperbola.
Fr.: cosinus hyperbolique
A function, denoted cosh x, defined for all real values of x, by the relation: cosh x = (1/2) (ex + e-x).
Fr.: fonction hyperbolique
Any of the six functions sinh, cosh, tanh, coth, csch, and sech that are related to the → hyperbola in the same way the → trigonometric functions relate to the → circle. Many of the formulae satisfied by the hyperbolic functions are similar to corresponding formulae for the trigonometric functions, except for + and - signs. For example: cosh2x - sinh2x = 1. See also: → hyperbolic cosine, → hyperbolic sine. Hyperbolic functions were first introduced by the Swiss mathematician Johann Heinrich Lambert (1728-1777).
madâr-e hozluli (#)
Fr.: orbite hyperbolique
An orbit that is an open curve whose ends get wider apart at any rate between that of an ellipse and a straight line. Some comets' orbits become hyperbolic through the gravitational influence of a planet the comet passes near.
Fr.: sinus hyperbolique
A function, denoted cosh x, defined for all real values of x, by the relation: cosh x = (1/2) (ex - e-x).
fazâ-ye hozluli (#)
Fr.: espace hyperbolique
A three-dimensional space whose geometry resembles that of a saddle-shaped surface and is said to have negative curvature.
A surface or body obtained by rotating a hyperbola about its axis of symmetry.
Hyperboloid, from hyperbol(a) + → -oid a suffix meaning "resembling, like."
Hozlulivâr, from hozluli, → hyperbola, + -vâr a suffix of similarity.
sâxtâr-e abar-nâzok (#)
Fr.: structure hyperfine
In spectroscopy, the → splitting of a spectral line into a number of very thin components. It results from a small perturbation in the energy levels of atoms or molecules due to the magnetic dipole-dipole interaction arising from the interaction of the nuclear → magnetic moment with the → spin of the electron. It can be observed only at high spectral dispersion. → fine structure.
Fr.: transition hyperfine
