1 
[ noun ] (geometry) the length of a line segment between the center and circumference of a circle or sphere
Synonyms Used in print (J. F. Vedder, "Micrometeorites", in Francis S. J...)If one assumes that the average flux did not change between measurements , a mass distribution curve is obtained which relates the flux of particles larger than a given radius to the inverse 7 2 power of the radius . If one assumes that the average flux did not change between measurements , a mass distribution curve is obtained which relates the flux of particles larger than a given radius to the inverse 7 2 power of the radius . The radius is calculated from the mass by assuming spheres of density * * f except for the smallest particles , which must have a higher mass density to remain in the solar_system in the presence of solar_radiation pressure . Therefore , n is inversely proportional to the radius cubed and in fair agreement with the inverse 7 2 power derived from 1958_Alpha and 1959_Eta data . Related terms
