# eccentricity

Englisch - Englisch
The ratio, constant for any particular conic section, of the distance of a point from the focus to its distance from the directrix
The quality of being eccentric; any eccentric behaviour
idiosyncrasy
{n} a deviation from the center
A measure of the lack of coincidence of longitudinal axes of a circular cross-sectional wire and its surrounding circular cross-sectional insulation It is expressed as the percentage ratio of the distance between wire and insulation centers to the difference between wire and insulation radii
The eccentricity of an ellipse (orbit) is the ratio of the distance between its focii and the major axis The greater the eccentricity, the more 'flattened' is the ellipse
Eccentricity of a rotational ellipsoid is a generalization of the ellipse eccentricity It is defined as a square root of one minus square of the semiaxes ratio For a prolate ellipsoid, c is the rotational semiaxis of the ellipsoid, and a is the semiaxis perpendicular to it
a parameter that describes the shape of an orbit; the closer the eccentricity is to zero, the more circular the orbit
The state of being eccentric; deviation from the customary line of conduct; oddity
a circularity that has a different center or deviates from a circular path
Eccentricity is a measure of how circular a satellite's orbit is For a perfectly circular orbit the eccentricity is zero; elliptical orbits have eccentricities between zero and one The higher the eccentricity, the more "squashed" the orbit is
Degree to which a an ellipse is flattened
The ratio of the distance of the center of the orbit of a heavenly body from the center of the body round which it revolves to the semi-transverse axis of the orbit
Variation in radius of an information track from the true axis of rotation of the disc May be confused with runout
(A-B)/A, where A and B are the lengths of the semi-major and semi-minor axes, respectively, of the orbit The eccentricity (e) of a circular orbit is 0, because A=B An ellipse has e<1 A Parabolic orbit has e=1 A hyperbolic (unbound, or positive energy) orbit has negative e
The distance of the center of figure of a body, as of an eccentric, from an axis about which it turns; the throw
Number between 0 and 1, gauging the elongation of elliptic orbit The eccentricity e of the orbital ellipse is one of the "orbital elements" characterizing it
A value that defines the shape of an ellipse or planetary orbit; the ratio of the distance between the foci and the major axis
The measure of the degree to which an ellipse is not circular; ratio of the distance between the foci to the major axis
Eccentricities are ways of behaving that people think are strange, or habits or opinions that are different from those of most people. We all have our eccentricities. = peculiarity
In an ellipse, the numerical ratio of the distance of the focus from the center of the ellipse to the length of the semimajor axis
a measure of the deviation of an orbit from a circle; a circular orbit has eccentricity=0
strange and unconventional behavior a circularity that has a different center or deviates from a circular path (geometry) a ratio describing the shape of a conic section; the ratio of the distance between the foci to the length of the major axis; "a circle is an ellipse with zero eccentricity
The ratio of the distance from the center of an ellipse to its focus to the semimajor axis e = (1-b2/a2)-1/2 where a and b are the semimajor and semiminor axes of the ellipse
(geometry) a ratio describing the shape of a conic section; the ratio of the distance between the foci to the length of the major axis; "a circle is an ellipse with zero eccentricity"
Eccentricity is unusual behaviour that other people consider strange. She is unusual to the point of eccentricity
The measure of how elliptical or circular is an orbit The eccentricity is equal to (1-b²/a²)1/2, where a and b are the major and minor axes of the elliptical orbit Circular orbits have e=0, elliptical orbits have 0<e<1, radial and parabolic orbits have e=1, and hyperbolic orbits have e>1
The ratio of the distance between the center and the focus of an ellipse or hyperbola to its semi-transverse axis
A measure of the extent to which an elliptical orbit departs from circularity
The measure of how an object's orbit differs from a perfect circle Eccentricity defines the shape of an object's orbit
(aka ecce or E0 or e) One of six Keplerian elements, it describes the shape of an orbit In the Keplerian orbit model, the satellite orbit is an ellipse, with eccentricity defining the "shape" of the ellipse When e=0, the ellipse is a circle When e is very near 1, the ellipse is very long and skinny
Geometric shape of the Earth's orbit This shape varies from being elliptical to almost circular
{i} irregularity, oddity; strangeness, unconventionality
Ratio of the distance between the foci to the major axis
strange and unconventional behavior
The distance between a line of action of force and the centroid of the member it is applied to
Description of the shape of a satellite's orbit A circular orbit has an eccentricity of 0 0, the closer to 1 0 the eccentricity, the more elliptical an orbit is Most artificial satellite orbits have an eccentricity less than 0 01, essentially circular
(pronounce: ex-sen-trih-sih-tee) eccentricus, from ex = [Latin] out, and centrum = [Latin] center The eccentricity of an orbit is one of the orbital elements It is a number that indicates how much the orbit deviates from a circle A circular orbit has an eccentricity equal to zero An elliptical orbit has an eccentricity between zero and one In this case, the eccentricity is equal to the difference between the lengths of the long and short axes of the ellipse, divided by the sum of those lengths A parabolic orbit has an eccentricity of one, and a hyperbolic orbit has an eccentricity larger than one Orbits with eccentricities less than one are closed, so the objects in such orbits return to the same position regularly Orbits with eccentricities greater or equal to one are open, which means that objects in such orbits never return to the same position
measures how far from a circular shape an ellipse is Numerically, the eccentricity e = 1 -- (perihelion / semi-major axis) The eccentricity e = 0 for a circle and e = nearly one (1) for very long, skinny ellipses
The amount by which an orbit deviates from a perfect circle: e = c/a, where c is the distance from the center to the focus and a is the semi-major axis In the Solar System, e = 1 - (q/a), where q is the perihelion distance
