Capable of returning to an original condition. → reversible process.

Fr.: 1) revue; 2) faire une revue
1a) A critical article or report.

The act of revoking; annulment.
Verbal noun of → revoke.
1) To take back or withdraw; annul, cancel, or reverse; rescind or repeal.
The movement of a celestial body which is in orbit around another. It is often measured as the → orbital period.
Verbal noun of → revolve.

adad-e Reynolds (#)
Fr.: nombre de Reynolds
A dimensionless quantity that governs the conditions for hydrodynamic stability and the occurrence of turbulence in fluids. It is defined by the ratio, R, of the inertial force (ρ u2) and the viscous force (μ u / L), i.e. R = L u ρ/μ, where L is a typical dimension of the system, u is a measure of the velocities that prevail, ρ the density, and μ the kinematic viscosity. At low Reynolds numbers the flow is steady, since the viscous forces are predominant in controlling the flow. At a critical value of R, corresponding to a critical velocity, the flow becomes turbulent.
Named after Osborne Reynolds (1842-1912), a British physicist who pioneered the study of turbulent flows; → number.
Fr.: étoile RHB
Same as → red horizontal branch star.
The second largest satellite of Saturn, also known as Saturn V. It has a diameter of 1530 km and orbits Saturn at a mean distance of 527,040 km in 4.518 days. Rhea is composed primarily of water ice with rock making up less than 1/3 of its mass. It was discovered by Cassini in 1672.
In Gk. mythology Rhea was the sister and wife of Cronus (Saturn) and the mother of Demeter, Hades (Pluto), Hera, Hestia, Poseidon (Neptune), and Zeus (Jupiter).
A metallic chemical element; symbol Re. Atomic number 75; atomic weight 186.207; melting point about 3,180°C; boiling point about 5,625°C. Rhenium is a very dense, high-melting, silver-white metal; specific gravity 21.02 at 20°C. Of the elements, only carbon and tungsten have higher melting points and only iridium, osmium, and platinum are more dense. It was discovered by x-ray spectroscopy in 1925 by the German chemists, Walter Noddack, Ida Tacke and Otto Berg.
The name derives from L. rhenus for "the Rhine river in Germany".
ravâné šenâsi (#)
A branch of physics dealing with the way matter flows and deforms.
Ravâné, from ravân "flowing, running," pr.p. of raftan "to go, walk; to flow;" (Mid.Pers. raftan, raw-, Proto-Iranian *rab/f- "to go; to attack") + šenâsi, → -logy.
Relating to a constraint or system that contains time explicitly. For example, a pendulum with an extensible string of length l rheonomous, the condition of constraint is: x2 + y2 = l2(t), where l(t) is the length of the string at time t.
Fr.: Rho Cassiopée
A → yellow hypergiant in the constellation Cassiopeia, classified as F8-G2 Ia0pe. Rho Cas is about 11,650 light-years away from Earth, yet can still be seen by the naked eye, as it is 550,000 times as luminous as the Sun. It is in fact one of the most luminous stars in our Galaxy. ρ Cas is also one of the only seven currently known yellow hypergiants in the Milky Way. It is variable and fluctuates around magnitude 5 but dimmed to 6th magnitude on 1946. Its last eruption happened in 2000-2001, during which the star ejected about 10 percent of a solar mass, dimmed by more than a full magnitude, and changed its spectral type from late F to early M. During this outburst, the star surface cooled from 7,000 to 4,000 K.
