Adiabatic equation The word adiabatic means the reduction or absence of heat transfer. The equation enables a suitable conductor size to be chosen to ensure that it will notbe damaged by heat due toexcessive fault current. The equationis: Where S = cross section area of ...

adiabatic. demagnetization. A technique for cooling a paramagnetic salt, such as potassium chrome alum, to a temperature near *absolute zero. The salt is placed between the poles of an electromagnet and the heat produced during magnetization is removed by liquid helium. The salt is then isolated thermally from the surroundings and the field is switched off; the salt is demagnetized adiabatically and its temperature falls. This is because the demagnetized state, being less ordered, ...
Actinides Adiabatic lapse rate Actinides Elements in the periodic table whose atomic numbers range from 89 to 103. Actinium, for example, is an actinide. Actinoid contraction Decrease in the atomic radius of an actinoid with the increase in its number of protons. Actinometer An instrument used for measuring the intensity of electromagnetic radiations. It makes use of either the phenomenon of fluorescence (old actinometer) or photoelectric effect (modern actinometer). Action at a ...

adiabat /ad-ee-ă-bat/ A line drawn on a THERMODYNAMIC DIAGRAM along which an air parcel moves as it ascends or descends through the atmosphere, cooling or warming adiabatically. There are two types of adiabat: the DRY ADIABAT and the SATU- RATED ADIABAT. adiabatic /ad-ee-ă-bat-ik/ Denoting any process in which there is no change of heat. In meteorology it describes a thermodynamic process in which the temperature of an air ...

- Adiabatic clouds on Longs Peak
The summit of Long's Peak from Mount Meeker. As strong winds blew up the slopes of Long's, adiabatic cooling caused condensation resulting in dramatic cloud formation around Long's summit. Climbing Longs Peak.
