Fr.: imprimer; impressionner
1) To press, to apply with pressure, especially to leave a mark.
1) A strong effect produced on the intellect, feelings, conscience, etc.
Capable of being impressed; easily impressed.
1) A style of painting developed in the last third of the 19th century, characterized

Of a force acting on a body, the → product of the → force and the → time for which it acts. If the force changes with time, the impulse is the → integral of the force with respect to the time during which the force acts, and is equal to the total change of → momentum produced by the force: ∫F dt = ∫m dv. Impulse is a → vector quantity.
From L. impulsus "a push against, pressure, shock," p.p. of impellere "to push, strike against, drive forward," from → in- "into" + pellere "to push, drive."

Fr.: principe impulsion-quantité de mouvement
The vector → impulse of the → resultant force on a particle, in any time interval, is equal in magnitude and duration to the vector change in momentum of the particle: ∫F dt = mv2 - mv1. The impulse-momentum principle finds its chief application in connection with forces of short duration, such as those arising in collisions or explosions. Such forces are called → impulsive forces.
Fr.: force impulsionnelle
Relating to → impulse, the force which is very large but acts for a very short time.
A substance that is incorporated into a semiconductor material to provide free electrons (n-type impurity) or holes (p-type impurity).
Impurity, from im- negation prefix, → in-, + purity, O.Fr. pureté, from L.L. puritatem (nom. puritas) "cleanness, pureness," from purus "clean;" cf.
