nuclear reaction
  واژیرش ِ هسته‌ای   
vâžireš-e haste-yi

nuclear; → transition.

nuclear transmutation
  تراموتش ِ هسته‌ای   
tarâmuteš-e haste-yi

Fr.: transmutation nucléaire   

The changing of atoms of one element into those of another by suitable nuclear reactions.

nuclear; → transmutation.

nulling fraction (NF)
  برخه‌ی ِ نولش

Fr.: fraction de phase d'arrêt   

The fraction of time that a → pulsar undergoes → pulse nulling. For most → nulling pulsars this fraction can range from zero (for the → Vela pulsar) to more than 50%.

number system conversion
  هاگرد ِ راژمان ِ عددی   
hâgard-e râžmân-e adadi

Fr.: conversion de système de numération   

The conversion of a → number system with a given → base to another system with a different base; such as the conversion of a → decimal number (base 10) to a → binary number system (base 2). In order to convert a number into its representation in a different number base, we have to express the number in terms of powers of the other base. For example, to convert the decimal number 100 to base 3, we must figure out how to express 100 as the sum of powers of 3. We proceed as follows:
1: Divide the decimal number to be converted (100) by the value of the new base (3).
2: Get the remainder from Step 1 (that is 1) as the rightmost digit (least significant digit) of new base number.
3: Divide the quotient of the previous divide (33) by the new base.
4: Record the remainder from Step 3 (0) as the next digit (to the left) of the new base number.
Repeat Steps 3 and 4, getting remainders from right to left, until the quotient becomes zero in Step 3 (2 and 0).
The last remainder thus obtained (1) will be the most significant digit of the new base number.
Therefore, 10010 = 102013.
Conversely, to convert from another base to decimal we must:
1: Determine the column (positional) value of each digit.
2: Multiply the obtained column values (in Step 1) by the digits in the corresponding columns.
3: Sum the products calculated in Step 2. The total is the equivalent value in decimal.
For example, the binary number 1100100 is determined by computing the place value of each of the digits of the number:
(1 × 26) + (1 × 25) + (0 × 24) + (0 × 23) + (1 × 22) + (0 × 21) + (0 × 20) = 64 + 32 + 0 + 0 + 4 + 0 + 0 = 100.

number; → system; → conversion.

numerical simulation
  مانندش ِ عددی، همانندسازی ِ ~   
mânandeš-e adadi, hamânand sâzi-ye ~

Fr.: simulation numérique   

Another name for → numerical modeling.

numerical; → simulation.


Fr.: nutation   

1) Mechanics: A wobbling motion of a spinning → rigid body, such as a top, as it → precesses about its vertical axis.
2) Astro.: A slight nodding motion of the Earth's axis of rotation, which has a principal period of 18.6 years. It is primarily caused by lunar → perturbations, and is superimposed on the → precession of the equinoxes and moves the equinox as much as 17'' ahead of or behind its mean position.

Fromm L. nutation-, from nutat(us), p.p. of nutare "to wobble, to sway, to nod repeatedly," from nu "nod" + -ta frequentative suffix + -tus p.p. ending + -ion a suffix denoting action or condition.

Kaltâv, from Kermâni keletow, Malâyeri kallatow "wobbling," from kal, kalleh "head" + tâv, tow, tâb "swing, twist," from tâbidan "to twist, to spin."

nutation in right ascension
  لنگارش ِ راست‌افراز   
langâreš-e râst-afrâz

Fr.: nutation en ascension droite   

Same as → equation of the equinoxes.

nutation; → right ascension.


Fr.: nutrition, alimentation   

1) The act or process of nourishing or of being nourished.
2) The science or study of, or a course of study in, nutrition, especially of humans (

Verbal noun from L. nutrire, → nourish.


Fr.: nutritioniste   

A person who is trained or expert in the science of nutrition.

nutrition; → -ist.

OB association
  آهزش ِ OB   
âhazeš-e OB

Fr.: association OB   

A loosely bound grouping of O and B stars that typically stretches up to several hundred → light-years and may contain between a dozen and several hundred → O stars and → B stars. The members of an OB association are young and of roughly the same age. OB associations dissipate in a few tens of millions of years.

O and B, from spectral types; → association.


Fr.: objection   

1) The act of objecting.
2) A statement presented in opposition.

Verbal noun of → object.

fariz (#)

Fr.: obligation   

1) Something by which a person is bound or obliged to do certain things, and which arises out of a sense of duty or results from custom, law, etc.
2) Something that is done or is to be done for such reasons (

M.E. obligacioun, from O.Fr. obligacion "obligation, duty, responsibility," from L. obligationem "an engaging or pledging," literally "a binding," noun of action from p.p. stem of obligare "to bind, bind up, bandage," from → ob- "to" + ligare "to bind," from PIE root *leig- "to bind."

Fariz, from Mid.Pers. frêz "obligation; duty."
