elongation

listen to the pronunciation of elongation
Englisch - Englisch
The act of lengthening, or the state of being lengthened; protraction; extension
That which lengthens out; continuation
The angular distance of a planet from the sun; as, the elongation of Venus or Mercury
Removal to a distance; withdrawal; a being at a distance; distance
The ratio of the extension of a material to the length of the material prior to stretching
{a} the act of lengthening, departure
Increase in length expressed numerically as a fraction or percentage of initial length
The angular distance of a planetary body from the Sun as seen from Earth A planet at greatest eastern elongation is seen in the evening sky and a planet at greatest western elongation will be seen in the morning sky
the act of lengthening something
Generally is "Ultimate Elongation", or percent increase in original length of a specimen when it breaks
{i} lengthening, extension, making longer
The increase in gage length of a tensile test specimen, expressed as a percent of the original gage length
the angular distance of a body from the Sun as seen from the Earth; a planet at greatest eastern elongation is seen in the evening sky and a planet at greatest western elongation is seen in the morning sky
The fractional increase in length of a material stressed in tension
The deformation in the direction of load caused by a tensile force Elongation is measured in units of length (e g , millimeters, inches) or calculated as a percentage of the original specimen length Elongation may be measured at any specified load or at the breaking load
The angular distance of a body of the solar system from the sun; the angle at the earth between lines to the sun and another celestial body of the solar system The term is usually used only in connection with inferior planets
In tensile testing, the increase in the gage length, measured after fracture of the specimen within the gage length, usually expressed as a percentage of the original gage length
Increase in length which occurs before a metal is fractured, when subjected to stress This is usually expressed as a percentage of the original length and is a measure of the ductility of the metal In tensile testing, the increase in the gauge length, measured after fracture of the specimen within the gauge length, usually expressed as a percentage of the original gauge length
The increase in gage length or extension of a specimen during a tension test, usually expressed as a percentage of the original gage length
Angular distance of a celestial object from the sun in the sky In standard ephemerides, this is usually denoted by the Greek letter epsilon (or by the abbreviation "Elong ") A celestial (usually solar-system) object's "phase angle" is the elongation of the earth from the sun, as would be seen by an observer on that third celestial object
The distance a tape will stretch lengthwise before backing' expressed as a percentage of original length Elongation is not necessarily an indication of conformability
The angular separation between the Sun and a solar system object as viewed by an observer (usually on the Earth)
When, as viewed from the earth, an inferior planet attains its greatest angular distance from the sun, it is said to be at either western or eastern elongation
The difference in the celestial longitudes of the Sun and a planet; the Sun-Earth-planet angle Eastern elongations appear east of the Sun and are visible in the evening; correspondingly, western elongations of planets occurs when they are visible in the morning An elongation of zero degrees is called conjunction (aligned with the Sun); one of 180° is called opposition (planet is overhead at midnight); and one of 90° is called quadrature (overhead at sunrise or sunset)
The increase in length of a wire or cable cause by longitudinal tension
The angular distance between the Sun and any other solar system body, usually the Earth, expressed in degrees The term Greatest Elongation is applied to the inner planets, Mercury and Venus It is the maximum elongation from the Sun At Greatest Elongation, the planet will appear 50% phase
The angle between a planet (or other body) and the Sun, as measured from Earth The maximum elongation for a superior planet is 180 degrees, this is known as opposition For inferior planets maximum elongation is always less than 90 degrees Maximum elongation is the best time to observe the inferior planets and opposition is the best time to observe the superior planets
an addition to the length of something
the act of lengthening something an addition to the length of something the quality of being elongated
The fractional increase in length of a material stressed in tension When expressed as a percentage of the original length, it is called percent elongation
the quality of being elongated
The Elongation of a planet is its angular separation between it and the sun as seen from the observer's position (usually Earth!)
Increase in length caused by a tensile force and expressed numerically as a fraction or percentage of the initial length
the increase in length of a specimen during a tensile test, expressed in units of length
elong
To lengthen out; to prolong
elong
To put away; to separate; to keep off
elongation
