Fr.: longueur de mélange
In a → turbulent flow, the average distance traveled by a → convective cell before it dissolves into its surroundings and deposits its energy. The mixing length is of the order of the → pressure scale height (HP), l = αHP, where α is the → mixing length parameter. See also → mixing length theory.
mixing length parameter
pârâmun-e derâzâ-ye âmizeš
Fr.: paramètre de la longueur de mémange
In the → mixing length theory, a parameter, α, that relates the → mixing length, l, to the → pressure scale height: α = l/HP. It is usually supposed that α is of order unity. Changes in α correspond to variations in the efficiency of the → convection, hence the transfer of heat.
mixing length theory (MLT)
negare-ye derâzâ-ye âmizeš
Fr.: théorie de la longueur de mélange
A theory dealing with heat transport by → turbulence which includes an elementary treatment of → convection. The central idea is that an unbalanced → buoyancy force drives a → convective cell to move through a distance, called the → mixing length, before the cell dissolves and joins the ambient medium. In this theory an adjustable → mixing length parameter α is used. The theory, originally due to L. Prandtl (1925), was first applied to the Sun by L. Biermann (1932, Z. Astrophys. 5, 117).
Fr.:rapport de mélange
Mass of water vapor per mass of dry air; expressed as grams per kilogram. → humidity
An aggregate of two or more substances that are not chemically combined with each other.
M.E., from L. mixtura "a mixing," from mixtus, → mix.
Âmizé, from âmiz present stem of âmixtan, → mix.
Mizar (ζ Ursae Majoris)
A star of visual magnitude 2.3 in the constellation → Ursa Major, which is the second star from the end of the → Big Dipper's handle. It forms a naked-eye double with → Alcor, lying at an angular separation of about 12 minutes of arc. Mizar is resolved into a 14''.4 → binary star (denoted A and B) with a probable period of thousands of years. Mizar A is a nearly equal-mass, → double-lined spectroscopic binary with period 20.54 days and → eccentricity of 0.53. The two components of Mizar A (denoted Aa and Ab) are both about 35 times as luminous as the Sun, and revolve around each other in about 20 days. Similarly, Mizar B is a → spectroscopic binary with a period of 175.57 days and an eccentricity of 0.46. Recent results suggest that Alcor is actually a binary and apparently → gravitationally bound to the Mizar system. This would make the Mizar-Alcor system a probable → sextuplet, lying at about 78 → light-years from Sun and the second closest such multiple known, after → Castor (Mamajek et al., 2010, AJ 139, 919).
Mizar, from Ar. al-Mi'zar (

The system of → MKS units.

Of or relating to mode, manner, or form.
The quality or state of being → modal.

Mode, from Fr. mode, from L. modus "measure, rhythm, song, manner," from PIE base *med- "to measure, limit, judge, advise;" cf. L. meditari "to think or reflect upon, consider;" Av. mad- "to measure out, apportion, allot;" Gk. medein "to rule;" O.E. metan "to measure out."

Fr.: 1) modèle; 2) modéliser
1a) A mathematical representation of a process, system, or object
developed to understand its behavior or to make predictions. The
representation always involves certain simplifications and
assumptions. See also → theory,

Fr.: dépendance du modèle
In a theoretical analysis, the solution that does not correctly treat the intervening parameters, or neglects some crucial factors.
The simulation of a process, concept, or operation of a system often implemented by a computer program and making use of a mathematical treatment.
Verbal noun of → model
1) Relating or belonging to present and recent time.

fizik-e novin (#)
Fr.: physique moderne
The physics developed since about 1900, which includes Einstein's → relativity theory and → quantum mechanics, as distinguished from → classical physics. Much of modern physics is concerned with the behavior of matter and energy under extreme conditions or on the very small scale.
