relative movement

relative movement

A change in position that is based on the current position. For example, it does not matter where the mouse is on the desk in relation to the pointer (cursor) on the screen. When you move it, the pointer starts moving from where it was last positioned.

Unlike continuous scales, the dynamic scales helps in determining the weight of an object during a relative movement between the load carrier and goods being measured and not mass flow measurement.
Many large-scale earthquakes were recorded in the past in this area, and the relative movement of 6 centimeters was observed in 1991-1993 along the Philippine fault line.
In the case of the kinetic friction, the slip force opposes the relative movement between the contact points (which may differ from the relative movement between the bodies).
Therefore, the relative movement of the fertilizer at this point can be not too intensive.
The presence of the tower causes an unsteady behavior of the flow that models have to take into account; for this reason, studies of tower interaction have been done using different techniques to handle the relative movement between rotor and tower, such as sliding mesh [14], dynamic mesh [15], and overset or chimera grids.
"The electricity was derived from the relative movement between the FFNG and the solution," the scientists explained in their research paper which was published in (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/anie.201706620/abstract;jsessionid=2199CE3D26296A7D795CE74C86D0B95B.f02t02?systemMessage=Wiley+Online+Library+will+be+unavailable+on+Saturday+and+Sunday+i.e+16th+and+17th+September+at+3%3A00+EDT+%2F+8%3A0) Angewandte Chemie International Edition Journal on Friday.
Antenna gain changes coupled to a communication channel that's also changing due to the relative movement of the vehicles, means keeping track of all these dynamics--this will involve more than just a classical channel link analysis.
The relative movement of the prosthetic landmark group after the final transformation was expressed in 6 degrees of freedom (Euler angles and translation distances).
