health, and growth; feed.
M.E., from O.Fr. norriss-, stem of norrir "raise, bring up, nurture, foster; maintain, provide for," from L. nutrire "to feed, nurse, foster, support, preserve," from *nutri, older form of nutrix "nurse,") literally "she who gives suck."

1) Something that nourishes; food, nutriment, or sustenance.
Fârmân, noun from fâridan (like sâzmân, sâxtemân, câymân, râžmân, and others).
A star that experiences a sudden increase in luminosity, by a s much as 106. The outburst ejects a shell of matter but does not disrupt the star.
novâl, român (#)
A fictitious prose narrative of considerable length and complexity, portraying characters and usually presenting a sequential organization of action and scenes (Dictionary.com).
From It. novella (storia) "new kind of story," from L. novellus "new, young, recent," → new.
Fr.: 1) bec; 2) tuyère
1) Tha end part of a → pipe, → hose,
or → tube through which a → stream
of → fluid is directed.
M.E. noselle, diminutive of → nose.
Kalap "the beak of a bird" (Biruni, at-Tafhim), may be from *galap-, ultimately from Proto-Ir. *ui-lap-; cf. Mid.Pers. lap "lip," Mod.Pers. lab cognate with L. labium, E. lip.
Fr.: col de tuyère
The portion of a nozzle with the smallest → cross section.
1) A subtle difference or distinction in expression, meaning, response, etc.
From Fr. nuance "shade of color, hue," from nuer "to shade," from nue "cloud," from L. nubes "a cloud, mist, vapor," → nebula.
Sâgen, from Xoyini sâgené "shade, shadow," related to sâyé, → shadow.
Of or pertaining to a → nucleus.
Haste-yi, from hasté, → nucleus, + -i adjective-forming suffix.
varqe-ye haste-yi (#)
Fr.: barrière nucléaire
The region of high potential energy through which a charged particle must pass on entering or leaving an atomic nucleus. → Gamow barrier.
Fr.: combustion nucléaire
A → nuclear reaction inside a star that produces the energy to make the star shine and also transform chemical elements into others.
bâr-e haste-yi (#)
Fr.: charge nucléaire
The positive electric charge on the nucleus of an atom.
Fr.: combustion nucléaire
Fr.: section efficace nucléaire
Apparent cross-section possessed by an atomic nucleus when it undergoes a particular type of collision process.
cagâli-ye haste-yi (#)
Fr.: densité nucléaire
The density of an atomic nucleus (about 1014 g/cm3).
Fr.: énergie nucléaire
Energy released during a nuclear reaction as the result of the conversion of mass into energy. → mass-energy equivalence.
šekâft-e haste-yi (#)
Fr.: fission nucléaire
A → nuclear reaction in which a heavy atomic nucleus splits into two or more approximately equal parts, usually as the result of the capture of a slow, or → thermal neutron by the nucleus. It is normally accompanied by the emission of further neutrons or → gamma rays and very large amounts of energy. The neutrons can continue the process as a → chain reaction, so that it becomes the source of energy in a → nuclear reactor or an atomic bomb. It may also be a trigger for → nuclear fusion in a hydrogen bomb. Fission occurs spontaneously in nuclei of uranium-235, the main fuel used in nuclear reactors.
niru-ye haste-yi (#)
Fr.: force nucléaire
The attractive force which acts between nucleons when they are extremely close together (closer than 10-13 cm).
suxt-e haste-yi (#)
Fr.: combustible nucléaire
A substance, such as uranium-238 or plutonium-239, which undergoes nuclear fission in a nuclear reactor.
Fr.: fusion nucléaire
A → nuclear reaction between atomic nuclei as a result of which a heavier → atomic nucleus is formed, a small fraction of mass is lost, and a large quantity of energy is released. Nuclear fusion is the source of the energy of stars.
