Fr.: bobine d'induction
A coil of wire used to introduce inductance into an electric circuit.
Agent noun of → induce.
Sorxpust (#), Hendi (#)
The American Indian. A faint, southern constellation (right ascension: 21 hours, declination: -55 degrees), supposed to represent an American native Indian. It was introduced in the 1603 star atlas of Johann Bayer and contains no stars brighter than the third magnitude. Abbreviation: Ind; genitive: Indi.
Indus "an Indian," from L., from Gk. Indos "the Indus River, an Indian."
Sorxpust "red skin," the term coming from the reddish skin color of some native
Americans, from sorx, → red, + pust "skin," from Mid.Pers.
pôst "skin;" Av. pastô-, in pastô.fraθanhəm "of
the breadth of the skin."
Fr.: collision inélastique
A collision between bodies in which there is a loss of total kinetic energy.
Fr.: diffusion inélastique
1) A statement of the form a ≠ b, a > b, or a < b, asserting one quantity
is greater than or less than another quantity. → equality.
Having no inherent power of action, motion, or resistance (opposed to active).
Inert, from Fr. inerte, from L. inertem "unskilled, inactive," from → in- "without" + ars (gen. artis) "skill."
Laxt "sluggish, inert."
Fr.: gaz rare, ~ inerte
Any one of six gases helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon, and radon, all of whose atomic shells contain complete numbers of electrons so that the atoms are almost completely chemically inactive. Same as noble gases.
Tendency of a body to preserve its state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line.
Inertia, from L. inertia "un-skillfulness, idleness," from iners (gen. inertis) "unskilled, inactive;" → inert.
Laxti "sluggishness, inertia."
Fr.: ellipsoïde d'inertie
An ellipsoid used in describing the motion of a rotating rigid body. It is stationary with respect to the rotating body, and is determined by the body's moments of inertia.
Fr.: inertiel, d'inertie
Of or relating to inertia.
Laxt, adj. of laxti, → inertia
niru-ye laxtinâk, ~ laxtimand
Fr.: force inertielle
cârcub-e laxtinâk, ~ laxtimand
Fr.: référentiel galiléen
jerm-e laxtinâk, ~ laxtimand
Fr.: masse inertielle
The mass of a body as determined from the acceleration of the body when it is subjected to a force that is not due to gravity.
jonbeš-e laxtinâk, ~ laxtimand
Fr.: mouvement inertiel
Motion free of any force, with constant velocity.
naveš-e laxtinâk, ~ laxtimand
Fr.: oscillation inertielle
1) A periodic motion of a particle that moves, free from external forces, over
the surface of a rotating sphere, such the Earth.
Inertial oscillations result from the → Coriolis force.
For example, a hockey puck launched on a big enough lake in the northern hemisphere
would turn to the right (east) and eventually loop back to nearly the initial
point (actually west of that point). The time it takes for the huckey puck
to return can be computed with the → Coriolis frequency.
inertial reference frame
cârcub-e bâzbord-e laxtinâk, ~ ~ laxtimand
Fr.: référentiel galiléen
A → reference frame or coordinate system in which there are no accelerations, only zero or uniform motion in a straight line. According to the special theory of relativity, it is impossible to distinguish between such frames by means of any internal measurement.
Fr.: chute vers le centre
The fall of matter toward the center of a region of gravitational influence.
1) The act or process of deriving logical conclusions from premises known or assumed
to be true.
From M.L. inferentia, from inferre, from → in- "in" + ferre "to carry, bear," cognate with Pers. bordan "to carry, bear," as below.
Darbord (on the models of daryâft "perception" and peybord "understanding, finding;" see also bâzbord, → reference), from dar-, → in-, + bord past stem of bordan "to carry, bear;" (Mid.Pers. burdan; O.Pers./Av. bar- "to bear, carry," Av. barəθre "to bear (infinitive);" Skt. bharati "he carries;" Gk. pherein; L. fero "to carry;" PIE base *bher- "to carry").
From L. inferior "lower," comp. form of inferus (adj.) "that is below or beneath," from infra "below" (→ infrared), cognate with Pers. zir, as below.
Zirin, adj. from zir "below, down," Mid.Pers. azêr "below, under," êr "below, down; low, under," adar "low;" Av. aδara- (adj.), aδairi- (prep.) "below;" cf. Skt. ádhara- "lower;" L. infra (adv., prep.) "below, underneath, beneath," inferus "lower;" O.E. under "under, among"); PIE base *ndher.
Fr.: conjonction inférieure
The conjunction of an inferior planet with the Sun when the planet is between the Sun and the Earth. → superior conjunction.
