A strong force of attraction that holds atoms together in a compound or crystal.

Related Terms

AGGLOMERATION

The potential of the system for particle attraction and adhesion.

COMPOUND

(1) chemically speaking, a distinct substance formed by the combination of two or more elements in definite proportions by weight and possessing physical and chemical properties different from those of the combining elements. (2) in petroleum processing, generally connotes fatty oils and similar materials foreign to petroleum added to lubricants to impart special properties.

COMPRESSOR

A device which converts mechanical force and motion into pneumatic flow power.

ADSORPTIVE FILTRATION

The attraction to, and retention of particles in, a filter medium by electrostatic forces, or by molecular attraction between the particles and the medium.

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.

HEAVE

The oscillatory vertical rise and fall, due to the entire hull being lifted by the force of the sea. Also called HEAVING

FRICTION

The resisting force encountered at the common boundary between two bodies when, under the action of an external force, one body, moves or tends to move relative to the surface of the other.

HYDROCARBON

Compound containing only carbon and hydrogen. Petroleum consists chiefly of hydrocarbons.

PUMP

A device which converts mechanical force and motion into hydraulic fluid power.

LIQUID

Any substance that flows readily or changes in response to the smallest influence. More generally, any substance in which the force required to produce a deformation depends on the rate of deformation rather than on the magnitude of the deformation.
