HARMONIC MOTION

The projection of circular motion on a diameter of the circle of such motion. Simple harmonic motion is produced if the circular motion is of constant speed. The combination of two or more simple harmonic motions results in compound harmonic motion.

BROOKFIELD VISCOSITY

Apparent viscosity in cP determined by Brookfield viscometer, which measures the torque required to rotate a spindle at constant speed in oil of a given temperature. Basis for ASTM Method D 2983; used for measuring low temperature viscosity of lubricants.

AZEOTROPE

Having constant maximum and minimum boiling points.

NEWTONIAN FLUID

A fluid with a constant viscosity at a given temperature regardless of the rate of shear. Single-grade oils are Newtonian fluids. Multigrade oils are NON-Newtonian fluids because viscosity varies with shear rate.

EVAPORATIVE COOLING

Involves the adiabatic exchange of heat between air and water spray or wetted surface. The water assumes the wetbulb temperature of the air, which remains constant during its traverse of the exchanger.

HYPERBOLA

An open curve with two parts, all points of which have a constant difference in distance from two fixed points called FOCI.

DEW POINT TEMPERATURE

The temperature at which condensation begins, if air is cooled at constant pressure.

ISOTHERMAL

Changes of volume or pressure under conditions of constant temperature.

ISOTHERMAL PROCESS

For a constant temperature process involving an ideal gas.

INTERRUPTED QUICK LIGHT

A quick light in which the sequence of flashes is interrupted by regularly repeated eclipses of constant and long duration.
