instantaneous velocity
  تندای ِ لحظه‌ای   
tondâ-ye lahze-yi

Fr.: vitesse instantanée   

The velocity of a particle at some one instant of time, or at some one point of its path. It can be defined as the limiting value of the average velocity when the second point is taken closer and closer to the first point.

instantaneous; → velocity.

Fr.: instrument   

1) An object used for producing music.
2) A measuring device designed to record the present value of a quantity under observation.

From O.Fr. instrument, from L. instrumentem "a tool, apparatus, furniture," from instruere "to arrange, furnish," from → in- + struc- (var. s. of struere "to put together") + -tus p.p. suffix.

instrumental; → flexure.

instrumental magnitude
  برز ِ سازالی   
borz-e sâzâli

Fr.: magnitude instrumentale   

The magnitude derived directly using → Pogson's relation. The instrumental magnitude depends on → detectorsensitivity, telescope → aperture, exact filter → bandpass, etc. It must be → calibrated to some standard → photometric system.

instrumental; → magnitude.

instrumental profile
  فراپال ِ سازالی   
farâpâl-e sâzâli

Fr.: profil instrumental
