1) Of, connected with, produced by → mechanics.
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.
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.
→ mechanical; → equilibrium.
mechanical equivalent of heat
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.
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.
Fr.: système mécanique
1) Any system of elements that interact according to the laws of
→ mechanics (as distinguished from chemical,
electrical, thermal, etc.).
→ mechanical; → system.
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.
1) In a mechanical manner; by a mechanism.
→ mechanical; → -ly.
quantum mechanical system
râžmân-e kuântom mekâniki
Fr.: système mécanique quantique
A → physical system that is specified by a → wave function.
→ quantum; → mechanical; → system.
âpârgar-e mekânik-e kuântomi
Fr.: opérateur en mécanique quantique
A linear → Hermitian operator associated with a physical quantity.
