absolute velocity

absolute velocity

[′ab·sə‚lüt və′läs·ə·dē]
(physics)
The vector sum of the velocity of a fluid parcel relative to the earth and the velocity of the parcel due to the earth's rotation; the east-west component is the only one affected.

Upon implementing the methodology described to obtain the absolute, tangential, and normal velocity profiles of the flow on the outlet of the spiral chambers, the following results were obtained: analysis of 100% of the area of the output absolute velocity profile (Figs.
This situation arises due to not realizing that v is the difference in velocity between an object's frame of reference and the frame of reference from which it is measured, not an absolute velocity, as discussed in the previous section 2.
The air velocity in the inertial coordinate system is the absolute velocity [??] and in rotating coordinate system is the relative velocity [[??].sub.r].
We observed that the absolute velocity of mitochondrial movements was significantly lower in S135F-MNs (0.19 [+ or -] 0.01 [micro]m/sec) and slightly lower in P182L-MNs (0.22 [+ or -] 0.01 [micro]m/sec) compared with control WA09-MNs (0.24 [+ or -] 0.01 [micro]m/sec) and hFSiPS1MNs (0.25 [+ or -] 0.01 [micro]m/sec) (Figure 3(c), Supplement Figure S3, and Supplement Table S1).
The grid velocity [u.sub.g] (x, t) is evaluated at the particle position [r.sub.p] (t); its appearance in (29) indicates that the convection is that [u.sub.p] (t) is the absolute velocity of the particle, whereas [r.sub.p] (t) is the position of the particle with respect to the frame of reference.
The ultrasonic anemometer with one transmitter and four receivers measures the absolute velocity of the mobile robot.
Absolute velocity feedback [8] control creates "sky-hook" damping to reduce the resonance peak effectively, but it cannot suppress the vibration except near the resonance frequencies [4].
The absolute velocity (C), rotational velocity (W), and turbine/compressor velocity (U) are plotted.
