To withstand the action or effect of; to strive against, or oppose.
M.E. resisten, O.Fr. resister, from L. resistere "to resist, to stand back, withstand," from → re- "against" + sistere "take a stand, stand firm," cognate with Pers. istâdan, as below.

baristgari, istâdegi (#)
1) General: The act or power of resisting, opposing, or withstanding.
From → resist + -ance a suffix used to form nouns either from adjectives in -ant or from verbs.
1) Characterized by or showing resistance.
Present participle of → resist, with -ant a suffix forming adjectives and nouns from verbs.
Capable of or inclined to resistance; resisting.
A property of a → conductor which is defined as the ratio of the → electric intensity (E) to the → current density (J): ρ = E/J. The greater the resistivity, the greater the intensity needed to establish a given current density, or the smaller the current density for a given intensity. A "perfect" conductor would have zero resistivity, and a "perfect" → insulator an infinite resistivity.
An electrical component used to introduce a known value of resistance into a circuit.
1) The degree to which an → optical system renders visible
separate parts of an object. Also known as → angular resolution and
→ spatial resolution. See also
→ spectral resolution.
Verbal noun of → resolve.
resolution of a force
Fr.: résolution de force
Vâgošudan, from prefix vâ-, → re-, + gošudan, gošâdan "to loose, open up, let free;" gošâd "opened; ample, broad;" Mid.Pers. wišâdan "to let free;" Khotanese hīyā "bound;" O.Pers. višta "untied, loosened," vištāspa- "with loosened horses" (personal name); Av. višta "untied," ā-hišāiiā "holds fettered," hita- "fastened, tied on, put to;" cf. Skt. sā- "to bind, fasten, fetter," sitá- "bound," ví-sita- "untied."
Past participle of → resolve.
Fr.: raie résolue
A → spectral line that is not contaminated by other nearby lines.
Fr.: pouvoir de résolution, pouvoir séparateur
A measure of an optical system's ability to produce an image which separates two points or parallel lines on the object.
1) The state of a → mechanical system
in which the → amplitude of → oscillation
is increased when it is subjected to stimulus from another source at or near its
own natural → frequency.
Resonance, from M.Fr. resonance, from L. resonantia "echo," from resonare "to resound," from re- "again, back" + sonare "to sound."
Bâzâvâyi, from bâz- "again, back," → re-, + âvâ "voice, sound" (related to âvâz "voice, sound, song," bâng "voice, sound, clamour" (Mid.Pers. vâng), vâžé "word;" Av. vacah- "word," vaocanghê "to decalre" (by means of speech), from vac- "to speak, say;" cf. Skt. vakti "speaks, says," vacas- "word;" Gk. epos "word;" L. vox "voice;" PIE base *wek- "to speak") + -yi noun suffix.
Fr.: capture résonante
Capture by an atomic nucleus of a particle whose energy is equal to one of the energy levels of the nucleus.
Fr.: fréquence de résonance
The frequency at which a system is in → resonance.
Fr.: raie de résonance
For a particular atom, the spectral line corresponding to the longest wavelength arising from a transition between the ground state and an excited state.
Fr.: orbite de résonance
An orbit which is in → orbital resonance with another orbit.
Fr.: particule de résonance
A hadronic particle which exists for only a very brief time (10-23 seconds) before decaying into hadrons; also called resonance. The existence of a resonance cannot be observed directly; it can only be inferred from studying the longer-lived products of its decay.
