atomic mass number (A-number)
  عدد ِ جرم ِ اتمی   
adad-e jerm-e atomi (#)

Fr.: nombre de masse atomique   

The total number of → protons and → neutrons in the → nucleus of an → atom (symbol A). For example, Oxygen-16 has a mass number of sixteen, because it has eight protons and eight neutrons.

atomic; → mass; → number.

atomic mass unit (amu)
  یکای ِ جرم ِ اتمی   
yekâ-ye jerm-e atomi (#)

Fr.: unité de masse atomique   

A unit of mass used for atoms and molecules, equal to 1/12 of the mass of an atom of carbon-12 (including orbital electrons). It is equal to 1.660 33 × 10-24 g.

atomic; → mass; → unit.

atomic nucleus
  هسته‌ی ِ اتم   
haste-ye atom (#)

Fr.: noyau atomique   

The central part of the → atom. It is made up of → protons and, in most cases, → neutrons. The nucleus is surrounded by a swarm of fast-moving → electrons. Almost all of the mass (more than 99%) of an atom is contained in the dense nucleus. The number of protons in the nucleus (called → atomic number) determines the type of → chemical element. Atoms that differ only in the number of neutrons in their nuclei are called → isotopes.

atomic; → nucleus.

atomic number
  عدد ِ اتمی   
adad-e atomi (#)

Fr.: nombre atomique   

The number of → protons in an → atomic nucleus (symbol Z). Same as → Z-number. The atomic number is written as a subscript to the left of the → chemical element name. For example, the most common isotope of oxygen is shown as 816O, which has 8 → protons and its → mass number (A) is 16.

atomic; → number.

atomic proposition
  گزاره‌ی ِ اتمی   
gozâre-ye atomi

Fr.: proposition atomique   

In → propositional logic, a → sentence without any → connectives. See also → molecular proposition.

atomic; → proposition.

atomic time
  زمان ِ اتمی   
zamân-e atomi (#)

Fr.: temps atomique   

Time measured using atomic clocks.

atomic; → number.

atomic transition
  گذرش ِ اتمی   
gozareš-e atomi

Fr.: transition atomique   

A change in the → energy level or → state of an → atom in which a → quantum of energy is either gained or lost. See also → forbidden transition; → permitted transition; → semiforbidden transition.

atomic; → transition.

atomic weight
  وزن ِ اتمی   
vazn-e atomi (#)

Fr.: poids atomique   

The mean atomic mass of a particular → chemical element in → atomic mass unit.

atomic; → weight.

atomic wff
   wff اتمی   
wff atomi

Fr.: FBF atomique   

i) If t1, t2, ..., tn are terms and P is a → predicate of arity n, then P(t1, t2, ..., tn) is an atomic wff.
ii) If t1 and t2 are terms, then (t1 = t2) is an atomic wff.

atomic; → wff.

attack
  ۱) پتاک؛ ۲) پتاکیدن   
1) patâk; 2) patâkidan

Fr.: 1) attaque; 2) attaquer   

1a) An aggressive and violent act against a person or place.
1b) Chem.: The beginning of a series of destructive reactions.
2a) To apply aggressive military action against (a place or enemy forces).
2b) Chem.: To begin a destructive reaction by breaking a bond or forming a new bond.

From M.Fr. attaquer, from Florentine Italian attaccare (battaglia) "join (battle)."

Patâk, from pa-, short for pati- "contrary, opposite" (az in panâh, padid), → against, + tâk, variants tak, tag, tâz "rush, running, attack," related to tâxtan "to run; to hasten; to assault," → flow.

Skt. tan- to stretch, extend;" tanoti "stretches," tantram "loom;" tántra- "warp; essence, main point;" Gk. teinein "to stretch, pull tight;" L. tendere "to stretch;" Lith. tiñklas "net, fishing net, snare;" PIE base *ten- "to stretch."
