INDUCTOR TACHOMETER

A type of impulse tachometer in which the rotating member, consisting of a magnetic material, causes the magnetic flux threading a circuit containing a magnet and a pickup coil to rise and fall, producing pulses in the circuit which are rectified for a permanent-magnet, movable-coil instrument.

CAPILLARITY

A property of a solid-liquid system manifested by the tendency of the liquid in contact with the solid to rise above or fall below the level of the surrounding liquid; this phenomenon is seen in a small bore (capillary) tube.

OBLIQUE SPHERE

The celestial sphere as it appears to an observer between the equator and the pole, where celestial bodies appear to rise obliquely to the horizon.

PULSE RISE TIME

The interval of time required for the leading edge of a pulse to rise from 10 to 90 percent of the pulse amplitude.

RIGHT SPHERE

The celestial sphere as it appears to an observer at the equator, where celestial bodies appear to rise vertically above the horizon.

SPHERE

1. A curved surface all points of which are equidistant from a fixed point within, called the center. The celestial sphere is an imaginary sphere of infinite radius concentric with the earth, on which all celestial bodies except the earth are imagined to be projected. The celestial sphere as it appears to an observer at the equator, where celestial bodies appear to rise vertically above the horizon, is called a right sphere; at the pole, where bodies appear to move parallel to the horizon, it is called a parallel sphere; between the equator and pole, where bodies appear to rise obliquely to the horizon, it is called an oblique sphere. Half a sphere is called a HEMISPHERE. 2. A body or the space bounded by a spherical surface. For most practical problems of navigation, the earth is considered a sphere, called the terrestrial sphere.

TO SURFACE

To rise to the surface.

TIDE CRACK

A crack at the line of junction between an immovable icefoot or ice wall and fast ice the latter subject to rise and fall of the tide.

BUBBLE CAP

A metal cap covering a hole in the plate within a distillation tower; designed to permit vapors to rise from below the plate, pass through the cap, and make contact with liquid on the plate.

CR LAW

A law which states that when a constant electromotive force is applied to a circuit consisting of a resistor and capacitor connected in series, the time taken for the potential on the plates of the capacitor to rise to any given fraction of its final value depends only on the product of capacitance and resistance.
