deuterium abundance
  فراوانی ِ دوتریوم   
farâvâni-ye doteriom

Fr.: abondance de deutérium   

The number of → deuterium (D) atoms with respect to → hydrogen (H) in an astrophysical object. Deuterium is a primordial product of → Big Bang nucleosynthesis. According to theoretical models, the primordial D/H ratio is estimated to be (2.61 ± 0.15) x 10-5 (Steigman et al. 2007, MNRAS 378, 576). Nuclear reactions in stars convert D into He tending to a lower D/H ratio in the → interstellar medium over time (→ deuterium burning). However, chemical and physical → fractionation processes can produce local → enhancements in the D/H ratio. For example, low-temperature ion-molecule reactions in → molecular cloud cores can enhance the D/H ratio in icy grains by as much as two orders of magnitude above that observed in the interstellar medium.
The D/H ratio in the → solar nebula, estimated from observations of CH4 in → Jupiter and → Saturn, is 2.1 ± 0.4 x 10-5, assuming that these gaseous planets obtained most of their hydrogen directly from solar nebula gas. This estimate is consistent with → protosolar D/H value inferred from the → solar wind implanted into lunar soils. Moreover, the D/H ratio derived from the interstellar Dα line (which is displaced from the → Lyman alpha line of 1H at 1216 Å by -0.33 Å) is 1.6 x 10-5 (Linsky et al. 1995, ApJ 451, 335).
High D/H ratios (relative to Earth's water) are measured spectroscopically from water in three comets (all from the → Oort cloud): → Halley (3.2 ± 0.1 x 10-4), → Hyakutake (2.9 ± 1.0 x 10-4), and → Hale-Bopp (3.3 ± 0.8 x 10-4). These are all about twice the D/H ratio for terrestrial water (1.49 x 10-4) and about 15 times the value for the above-mentioned solar nebula gas. Note that → carbonaceous chondrites have the highest water abundance of all → meteorites. Their D/H ratios range from 1.20 x 10-4 to 3.2 x10-4 with a case at (7.3 ± 1.2) x10-4.
Different authors interpret the high comet ratios in very different ways. Some consider the high D/H ratio as evidence against a cometary origin of most of the terrestrial water. Others, on the contrary, argue that comets are the main reservoir of deuterium-rich water that raised the terrestrial D/H a factor of six above the protosolar value.

impedance
  پاگیری   
pâgiri (#)

Fr.: impédance   

General: The ratio of a quantity with the nature of a force to a related quantity with the nature of a current.
Electricity: The apparent opposition in an electrical circuit to the flow of an alternating current that is analogous to the actual electrical resistance to a direct current and that is the ratio of effective electromotive force to the effective current

From impede, from L. impedire "to entangle," literally "to shackle the feet," from in- "in" + pes (gen. pedis) "foot" + -ance a suffix used to form nouns either from adjectives in -ant or from verbs.

Pâgiri, verbal noun of pâgir "impedder, impeded; hinderer, hindered," from "foot, step" (from Mid.Pers. pâd, pây; Av. pad- "foot;" cf. Skt. pat; Gk. pos, gen. podos; L. pes, gen. pedis; P.Gmc. *fot; E. foot; Ger. Fuss; Fr. pied; PIE *pod-/*ped-) + gir present stem of gereftan "to take, seize" (Mid.Pers. griftan, Av./O.Pers. grab- "to take, seize," cf. Skt. grah-, grabh- "to seize, take," graha "seizing, holding, perceiving," M.L.G. grabben "to grab," from P.Gmc. *grab, E. grab "to take or grasp suddenly;" PIE base *ghrebh- "to seize").

overabundance
  بیش‌فراوانی   
biš-farâvâni

Fr.: surabondance

protosolar abundance
  فراوانی ِ پوروا-خورشیدی

Fr.: abondance protosolaire   

The abundance of a chemical element pertaining to the proto-→ solar nebula from which the → solar system was formed. → CI chondrite; → CAI meteorite.

solar abundance
  فراوانی ِ خورشیدی   
farâvâni-ye xoršidi

Fr.: abondance solaire   

solar photospheric abundance, → solar system abundance.

solar; → abundance.

solar photospheric abundance
  فراوانی ِ شیدسپهری ِ خورشیدی   
farâvâni-ye šidsepehri-ye xoršidi

Fr.: abondance photosphérique solaire   

The abundance of a → chemical element as determined from the observation of solar → spectral lines. The solar chemical composition is an important ingredient in our understanding of the formation, structure and evolution of both the Sun and our solar system. Furthermore, it is an essential reference standard against which the elemental contents of other astronomical objects are compared (Asplund et al. 2009, arXiv:0909.0948). The photospheric abundances relative to hydrogen are not representative of the → protosun, or global → solar system abundances. This is because heavy-element fractionation in the Sun has altered photospheric abundances (Lodders 2003, ApJ 591, 1220).

solar; → photospheric; → abundance.

solar system abundance
  فراوانی ِ راژمان ِ خورشیدی   
farâvâni-ye râžmân-e xoršidi
