relativistic Doppler effect oskar-e Doppler-e bâzânigimand Fr.: effet Doppler relativiste The Doppler effect when the relative motion of the source and the observer is comparable to the speed of light. In that case the classical Doppler formula should be corrected for effects of the special theory of relativity (Lorentz transformation). → relativistic; → Doppler effect. |
relativistic effect oskar-e bâzânigimand Fr.: effet relativiste A physical phenomenon described only by the theories of → special relativity or → general relativity. → relativistic; → effect. |
relativistic mass jerm-e bâzânigimand Fr.: masse relativiste In → special relativity, the mass that is assigned to a body in motion. Einstein demonstrated that the velocity of the observer has an effect on the way inertial mass is measured. The relativistic mass is expressed by m_{t} = m_{0} / [1 - (v/c)^{2}]^{1/2}, where m_{0} is the → rest mass, v is the velocity, and c the → velocity of light. The experimental evidence for this phenomenon is observed in the mass of high-speed electrons accelerated by magnetic fields. This formula shows that it is impossible for a mass to be accelerated to the velocity of light in a vacuum. → relativistic; → mass. |
relativistic particle zarre-ye bâzânigimand Fr.: particule relativiste A particle which has a speed comparable to the velocity of light. → relativistic; → particle. |
relativistic precession pišâyân-e bâzânigimand Fr.: précession relativiste A → general relativistic phenomenon in which the line joining the → apsides of an orbit gradually rotates in a → prograde direction. Also called the → orbital precession and → perihelion precession. Although the general relativistic precession of Mercury's orbit is extremely small, the similar precession observed in the orbit of the → binary pulsar PSR B1913+16 amounts to 4.23 degrees per year, i.e. 36,000 times greater than the → advance of perihelion of Mercury. → relativistic; → precession. |
relativistic quantum mechanics kuântom mekânik-e bâzânigimand Fr.: mécanique quantique relativiste A quantum theory that incorporates special relativity, for example, → quantum electrodynamics. |
relativistic redshift sorx kib-e bâzânigimand Fr.: décalage vers le rouge relativiste A redshift caused by the → relativistic Doppler effect. → gravitational redshift. → relativistic; → redshift. |
relativistic speed tondi-ye bâzânigimand Fr.: vitesse relativiste Same as → relativistic velocity. → relativistic; → speed. |
relativistic spin precession pišâyân-e âse-ye carxeš-e bâzânigi-mand Fr.: précession de l'axe de rotation relativiste The change in the direction of the → rotation axis of a → pulsar in a → binary pulsar. In such a system, → geodetic precession leads to a relativistic → spin-orbit coupling, analogous of → spin-orbit coupling in atomic physics. In consequence, the pulsar spin precesses about the total → angular momentum, changing the relative → orientation of the pulsar toward Earth (Damour & Ruffini, 1974). As a result, the angle between the pulsar → rotation axis and our → line of sight changes with time, so that different portions of the emission beam can be observed leading to changes in the measured pulse profile. In extreme cases, the precession may even move the beam out of our line of sight and the pulsar may disappear as predicted for PSR 1913+16 for the year 2025. → relativistic; → spin; → precession. |
relativistic velocity tondâ-ye bâzânigimand Fr.: vitesse relativiste The velocity of a body when it is a significant fraction of the → speed of light. → relativistic; → velocity. |
relativity bâzânigi Fr.: relativité General: The state or fact of being relative. |
relativity of simultaneity bâzânigi-ye hamzamâni Fr.: relatitivité de simultanéité A basic concept of → special relativity whereby → events that are simultaneous in one → reference frame are not simultaneous in another reference frame moving with respect to the first. → relativity; → simultaneity. |
relativity principle parvaz-e bâzânigi Fr.: principe de relativité The requirement employed by Einstein in his relativity theories, that the equations describing the laws of physics are the same in all frames of reference. This statement and that of the constancy of the speed of light constitute the founding principles of special relativity. Relativity; → principle. |
relativity theory negare-ye bâzânigi Fr.: théorie de la relativité The → theory of relativity. → theory; → relativity. |
relativize bâzâni kardan Fr.: relativiser To regard as or make one thing relative to something else. |
relax vâhelidan (#) Fr.: relaxer, se relaxer To lessen the force, strength or intensity of something. m M.E., from O.Fr. relaxer from L. relaxare "relax, loosen, open," from → re- "back" + laxare "loosen," from laxus "loose." Vâhelidan, from vâ-, → re-, + helidan, heštan "to place, put" from Mid.Pers. hištan, hilidan "to let, set, leave, abandon;" Parthian Mid.Pers. hyrz; O.Pers. hard- "to send forth," ava.hard- "to abandon;" Av. harəz- "to discharge, send out; to filter," hərəzaiti "releases, shoots;" cf. Skt. srj- "to let go or fly, throw, cast, emit, put forth;" Pali sajati "to let loose, send forth." |
relaxation vâheleš (#) Fr.: relaxation 1) The evolution of the properties of a physical system which has
been disturbed and which regains its equilibrium condition
once the disturbing action has ceased. Relaxation is the response of the
system to the perturbation. The time required by the system to regain
its condition of minimum energy is called the
→ relaxation time. Verbal noun of → relax. |
relaxation time zamân-e vâhaleš Fr.: temps de relaxation The characteristic length of time that is required for a system undergoing → relaxation to move to its equilibrium state. If the system follows an exponential law G = G_{0} exp(-t / τ), the relaxation time is the time required for G to obtain the fraction 1/e of its initial value G_{0}. → relaxation; → time. |
relaxed system râžmân-e vâhalidé Fr.: système relaxé A → dynamical system that has regained its → equilibrium. Especially a system in which the kinetic and potential energies obey a specific relationship known as the → virial theorem. P.p. from relax, → relaxation. |
relay ask (#) Fr.: relais General: The act of passing something along from one person, group, or
device to another. M.E. relaien "to unleash fresh hounds in a hunt," from M.Fr. relai "reserve pack of hounds or other animals," from O.Fr. relaier "to exchange tired animals for fresh," literally "to leave behind," from → re- "back" + laier "to leave." Ask "relay horse kept in stations for the use of messengers," maybe from asb→ horse. |
