Science / Chemistry / Isobar: 1. A contour line that corresponds to values measured at identical pressures. For example, curves on a plot of gas volumes measured at different temperatures in an open container are isobars. 2. Nuclides that have the same isotopic mass but different atomic number.
Technology / Home Audio / Isobarik: Sometimes spelled Isobaric, this is an enclosure design in which two or more Drivers are coupled together by a sealed air mass to operate as a single driver. With proper sealing and design, very impre MORE
Science / Weather / Gradient Wind: A steady horizontal air motion along curved parallel isobars or contours in an unchanging pressure or contour field, assuming there is no friction and no divergence or convergence. MORE
Science / Weather / Closed Low: A region of low pressure distinguished by a center of counterclockwise circulation (in the Northern Hemisphere), and is surrounded by one or more isobars or height contours. Closed lows aloft (i.e., a MORE
Science / Weather / Friction Layer: The thin layer of atmosphere adjacent to the earth's surface. Surface friction is effective in slowing down wind up to approximately 1,500 to 3,000 feet above the ground. Above this level, air tends t MORE
