To emit particles, sparks, etc., forcibly or explosively, especially accompanied by sputtering sounds.

Originally "to spit with explosive sounds," cognate with Du. sputteren, W.Fris. sputterje.

Osparândan, literally "to throw out," from os- "out," → ex-, + parândan "to eject," transitive verb of paridan "to fly" (from Mid./Mod.Pers. par(r) "feather, wing," Av. parəna- "feather, wing;" cp. Skt. parna "feather," E. fern; PIE *porno- "feather").

Verbal noun of → sputter.

squall
  بادزد   
bâdzad (#)

Fr.: rafale   

A sudden, violent gust of wind, often accompanied by rain, snow, or sleet. A sudden increase of the mean wind speed which lasts for several minutes at least before the mean wind returns to near its previous value. It is often accompanied by rain or snow.

Probably from a Scand. source (cf. Norw. skval "sudden rush of water," Sw. skvala "to gush, pour down").

Bâdzad, from bâd, → wind + zad past stem of zadan "to strike, beat; to do; to play an instrument" (Mid.Pers. zatan, žatan; O.Pers./Av. jan-, gan- "to strike, hit, smite, kill" (jantar- "smiter"); cf.

M.E., from O.Fr. esquire "a square, squareness," from V.L. *exquadra, from *exquadrare "to square," from L. → ex- "out" + quadrare "make square," from quadrus "a square," from quattuorfour.

Câruš, from Av. caθruša- "four sides (of a four-sided figure)", from caθru- "four," Mod.Pers. cahâr, câr "four" + uša- "angle," Mod.Pers. guš, gušé.

  درجه‌ی ِ چاروش   
daraje-ye câruš

Fr.: degré carré

Square Kilometer Array (SKA)
     
SKA

Fr.: SKA   

An international project to construct a highly sensitive radio interferometer array operating between 0.15 and 20 GHz with an effective collecting area of one square kilometer. The number of individual telescopes will be 2000 to 3000. SKA will have a sensitivity 100 times higher than that of today's best radio telescopes and an angular resolution < 0.1 arcsec at 1.4 GHz. The site will be selected in 2012 and early science with Phase 1 is scheduled for from 2016 on. See also the SKA homepage.

square; → kilometer; → array.

Square of Pegasus
  چهارگوش ِ پگاسوس   
Chahârguš-e Pegasus

Fr.: Carrée de Pégase   

A large → asterism of four stars, approximately square in shape, in the northern sky. Three of the stars, → Markab, → Scheat, and → Algenib, belong to the constellation → Pegasus. The fourth, → Alpheratz, was lost to Pegasus when the constellation boundaries were formalised, and now lies just within the borders of → Andromeda.

square; → Pegasus.

Chahârguš, → tetragon; → Pegasus.

square root
  ریشه‌ی ِ چاروش   
riše-ye câruš

Fr.: racine carée

square; → root.

square wave
  موج ِ چاروش   
mowj-e câruš

Fr.: onde carrée

SS 433
     
SS 433

Fr.: SS 433   

A → close binary star lying at the center of the → supernova remnant W50, in → Aquila, about 18,000 → light-years away. The system consists of a normal → O star or → B star in a 13.087 day orbit around a compact object that is either a → neutron star or a → black hole. Material transferred from the normal star into an → accretion disk surrounding the compact object is ejected in two jets of ionized gas in opposite directions, at about a quarter of the speed of light. The system is also a periodic X-ray source. The jets are emitted in a cone with a half-angle of about 20°. The cone is inclined by 80° to the line of sight. The compact object precesses with a period of 164 days. This causes the projected angle of the jets to go through a 164 day cycle, giving the variation in the Doppler shifts.

Such called because this object carries number 433 in the Stephenson-Sanduleak catalog of stars with strong emission lines, compiled by Bruce Stephenson and Nicholas Sanduleak in 1977.

  ترازمندی ِ پایدار   
tarâzmandi-ye pâydâr (#)

Fr.: équilibre stable   

An equilibrium state of a system in which if a small perturbation away from equilibrium is applied, the system will return to its equilibrium state. An example is a pendulum hanging straight down. If it is pushed slightly, it will experience a force back toward the equilibrium position. It may oscillate around the equilibrium position for a while, but it will finally regain its equilibrium position. → unstable equilibrium.

stable; → equilibrium.
