heat
  گرما   
garmâ (#)

Fr.: chaleur   

Energy possessed by a substance in the form of kinetic energy of atomic or molecular translation, rotation, or vibration.

Heat, from O.E. hætu, hæto, from P.Gmc. *khaitin- "heat," from *khaitaz "hot" (cf. O.N. hiti, Ger. hitze "heat," Goth. heito "fever").

Garmâ "heat, warmth," from Mid.Pers. garmâg; O.Pers./Av. garəma- "hot, warm;" cf. Skt. gharmah "heat;" Gk. thermos "warm;" L. formus "warm," fornax "oven;" P.Gmc. *warmaz; O.E. wearm; E. warm; O.H.G., Ger. warm; PIE *ghworm-/*ghwerm- "warm."

heat capacity
  گنجایش ِ گرمایی   
gonjâyeš-e garmâyi (#)

Fr.: capacité thermique, ~ calorifique   

The ratio of an amount of heat, dQ, transferred to a body in some process to the corresponding change in the temperature of the body: C = dQ/dT. The heat capacity depends upon the mass of the body, its chemical composition, thermodynamic state, and the kind of process employed to transfer the heat. The word "capacity" may be misleading because it suggests the essentially meaningless statement "the amount of heat a body can hold," whereas what is meant is the heat added per unit temperature rise. → specific heat.

heat; → capacity.

heat conduction
  هازش ِ گرما   
hâzeš-e garmâ

Fr.: conduction de chaleur   

A type of → heat transfer by means of molecular agitation within a material without any motion of the material as a whole.

heat; → conduction.

heat convection
  همبز ِ گرما   
hambaz-e garmâ (#)

Fr.: convection de chaleur   

A type of → heat transfer involving mass motion of a fluid such as air or water when the heated fluid is caused to move away from the source of heat, carrying energy with it.

heat; → convection.

heat death of the Universe
  مرگ ِ گرمایی ِ گیتی   
marg-e garmâyi-ye giti (#)

Fr.: mort thermique de l'Univers   

Assuming that the Universe is a thermodynamically → isolated system, a state of absolute uniformity in the Universe in which all temperature differences would reduce to zero and no energy will be available for use, according to the → second law of thermodynamics. In that condition of maximum → entropy, the Universe would be in a state of unchanging death. First introduced by the German physicist Hermann von Helmholtz (1821-1894) in 1854, on the basis of William Thomson's (1824-1907) idea.

heat; → death; → Universe.

heat of vaporization
  گرمای ِ بخارش   
garmâ-ye boxâreš

Fr.: chaleur de vaporisation   

The amount of heat energy required to transform an amount of a substance from the liquid phase to the gas phase. → molar heat of vaporization.

heat; → vaporization.

heat shield
  سپر ِ گرمایی، گرماسپر   
separ-e garmâyi (#), garmâ-separ

Fr.: bouclier thermique   

A structure that protects against excessive heat, especially that which covers the vulnerable surfaces of a → spacecraft and protects it when re-entering the Earth's atmosphere.

heat; → shield.

heat transfer
  تراوژ ِ گرما   
tarâvaž-e garmâ

Fr.: transfert de chaleur   

The spontaneous transportation of heat through matter, from a region of higher temperature to a region of lower temperature.

heat; → transfer.

heat wave
  چله‌ی ِ تابستان   
celle-ye tâbestân (#)

Fr.: canicule   

Meteorology: A period of several successive days of abnormally hot and usually humid weather occurring in summer.

heat; → wave.

Celle-ye tâbestân literally "the fortieth of summer," i.e. "midsummer," from cellé pertaining to "forty (days)," from cel, cehel, → forty, + tâbestân, → summer.

heating
  گرمش   
garmeš

Fr.: chauffage   

1) The process whereby a system's temperature increases. → warming.
2) A device or system for supplying heat, especially central heating, to a building; the heat supplied.

heat; → -ing.

heaven
  آسمان   
âsmân (#)

Fr.: ciel   

The sky or Universe as seen from the Earth; the firmament. Often used in the plural.

From M.E. heven, O.E. heofon, possibly from P.Gmc. *khemina- (cf. M.L.G. heben, O.N. himinn, Goth. himins, Du. hemel, Ger. Himmel "heaven, sky"); PIE base *kem-/*kam- "to cover."

Âsmân, from Mid.Pers. âsmân "sky, heaven;" O.Pers. asman- "heaven;" Av. asman- "stone, sling-stone; heaven;" cf. Skt. áśman- "stone, rock, thunderbolt;" Gk. akmon "heaven, meteor, anvil;" Akmon was the father of Ouranos (Uranus), god of sky; Lith. akmuo "stone;" Rus. kamen; PIE base *akmon- "stone, sky." The link between the "stone" and "sky" concepts indicates that the sky had once been conceived as a stone vault by prehistoric Indo-Europeans.

heavenly body
  جسم ِ آسمانی   
jesm-e âsmâni

Fr.: corps céleste   

astronomical object.

heaven; → -ly; → body.
