analytical mechanics
  مکانیک ِ آنالسی   
mekânik-e ânâlasi

Fr.: mécanique analytique   

A branch of → mechanics based on → variational principle that describes systems by their → Lagrangian or → Hamiltonian. Analytical mechanics provides a formalism that is different from that of Newton and does not use the concept of force. Among other things, analytical mechanics gives a more simple description of continuous and constrained systems. Moreover, its mathematical structure allows it an easier transition to quantum mechanical topics.

analytical; → mechanics.

celestial mechanics
  مکانیک ِ آسمانی   
mekânik-e âsmâni (#)

Fr.: mécanique céleste   

The branch of astronomy that deals with the calculation of motions of celestial bodies under the action of their mutual gravitational attractions.

celestial; → mechanics.

Mekânik, → mechanics; âsmâni, → celestial.

classical mechanics
  مکانیک کلاسیک   
mekânik kelâsik (#)

Fr.: mécanique classique   

The branch of physical science which deals with the motions of bodies travelling at velocities that are very much less than that of light in a vacuum. Same as → Newtonian mechanics.

classical; → mechanics.

fluid mechanics
  مکانیک ِ شاره‌ها   
mekânik-e šârehâ

Fr.: mécanique des fluides   

The branch of physics that extends the ideas developed in → mechanics and → thermodynamics to the study of motion and equilibrium of → fluids.

mechanics; → fluid.

sâzokârmand, sâzokârgar

Fr.: mécanicien   

A person who repairs and maintains machinery, motors, etc. ( Same as → mechanician.


  ساز-و-کاریک، ساز-و-کاروار   
sâzokârik, sâzokârvâr

Fr.: mécanique   

1) Of, connected with, produced by → mechanics.
2) Like machines; automatic.

mechanic; → -al.

mechanical energy
  کاروژ ِ مکانیکی   
kâruž-e mekâniki

Fr.: énergie mécanique   

The energy that is possessed by an object due to its motion or due to its position. It is equal to the sum of the → kinetic energy and → potential energy.

mechanical; → energy.

mechanical equilibrium
  ترازمندی ِ مکانیکی   
tarâzmandi-ye mekâniki

Fr.: équilibre mécanique   

1) The state of a → rigid body if, as viewed from an → inertial frame of rest: 1) the → linear acceleration of its → center of mass is zero, and 2) its → angular acceleration about any axis fixed in this reference frame is zero. The center of mass may be moving with constant velocity and the body may be rotating about a fixed axis with constant angular velocity.
2) In → thermodynamics, the state of a system in which → pressure is the same every where with no other forces acting on the system except a uniform external pressure.

mechanical; → equilibrium.

mechanical equivalent of heat
  هم‌ارز ِ مکانیکی ِ گرما   
ham-arz-e mekâniki-ye garmâ (#)

Fr.: équivalent mécanique de chaleur   

Same as → Joule's constant.

mechanical; → equivalent; → heat.

Fr.: mélange mécanique   

Any → mixing process that utilizes the → kinetic energy of relative → fluid motion.

mechanical; → mixing.

mechanical power
  توان ِ مکانیکی   
tavân-e mekâniki (#)

Fr.: puissance mécanique   

The → rate at which → work is done by a → force. In other words, → mechanical energy per unit time. Mechanical power is expressed in units of joules/sec (joules/s) or a watt (W) in the → mks system.

mechanical; → power.

mechanical system
  راژمان ِ مکانیکی   
râžmân-e mekâniki

Fr.: système mécanique   

1) Any system of elements that interact according to the laws of → mechanics (as distinguished from chemical, electrical, thermal, etc.).
2) A collection of → machines functioning together to achieve the transfer of motion.

mechanical; → system.

mechanical wind
  باد ِ مکانیکی   
bâd-e mekâniki

Fr.: vent mécanique   

A process in which matter is shed into a → Keplerian disk from a star rotating at the → critical velocity. The disk is probably destroyed by the pressure exerted by the stellar radiation and finally matter is lost. Such a process seems to occur around → Be stars which are stars rotating at or very near the critical limit (Meynet et al. 2007, arXiv:0709.2275).

mechanical; → wind.

  ساز-و-کاریکانه، ساز-و-کاروارانه

quantum mechanics
  کو‌آنتوم مکانیک، مکانیک ِ کو‌آنتومی   
kuântom mekânik, mekânik-e kuântomi

Fr.: mécanique quantique   

A development of Newtonian mechanics based on the discrete character of energy (Planck 1900) and the wave motion of material particles (de Broglie 1924). It is relies on the consideration that energy state of a quantum mechanical system can be derived at a given instant by a function whose square of the modulus gives the probability distribution of the coordinates of the system. Quantum mechanics is essential for the treatment of all atomic processes. It holds also for ordinary large scale processes although in this case the deviations from Newtonian mechanics are negligible.

quantum; → mechanics.
