Synonyms Used in print (Raymond C. Binder et al., editors, Proceedings...)This calculation results in an enthalpy rise which is somewhat high because it assumes a mass flow equally distributed over the plug cross_section whereas in_reality the mass velocity is expected to be smaller in the regions of higher temperatures . (Harry H. Hull, "The Normal Forces and Their Ther...)Although the * * f calculation is obvious by_analogy_with that for gravitational_field and osmotic_pressure , it is interesting to confirm it by a method which can be generalized to include related effects . 
2 
[ noun ] (mathematics,psychology) problem solving that involves numbers or quantities
Synonyms Used in print (James A. Ibers et al., "Proton magnetic resonance...)Douglass found powder intensity calculations and measurements to agree best for **f . (J. F. Vedder, "Micrometeorites", in Francis S. J...)The mass scale used in Table 5  1 was derived on the assumption that the motion of the glowing trail is related_to the momentum transfer to the trail by the meteorite , permitting the calculation of the mass if the velocity is known ( Cook and Whipple , 1958 ) .
