mechano-, mechan-; mechanico-; machin-
(Greek makhana, machana > Latin machina: machine, device, tool; an apparatus for applying mechanical power to do work; mekhanikos > machynen, decide a course of action, contrive, plot contrivance; a machine or the workings of machines)
Aeromechanics also includes the two distinct branches of aerodynamics and aerostatics.
"Biomechanical functions include the muscles, heart, lungs, and gravity on the skeletal structure."
2. The study of the mechanical laws relating to the movement or structure of living organisms.
3. The study of body movements and of the forces acting on the musculoskeletal system.
4. The application of mechanics to the structures of living animals; especially, to the forces on the skeleton caused by the muscles, gravity, and resulting movements of the locomotor system.
Biomechanics is a curious blend of mechanical engineering and biology. It was born of the recognition that parts of a living organism may be viewed as mechanical devices to which engineering concepts; such as, fluid pressure, mechanical stress and friction can be applied.
One side of the line is connected by an insulated wire to the primer, and the other side is grounded to the frame of the weapon.
2. Pertaining to a mechanical device, system, or process which is electrostatically or electromagnetically actuated or controlled.
3. Designating or of a mechanical device that is operated wholly or in part mechanically, but powered or controlled by electricity.
4. The use of electricity to run moving parts; for example, disk drives, printers and motors are examples of electromechanical devices.
Electromechanical systems must be designed for the eventual deterioration of moving components that wear over time.
All electromagnetic radiation, including radio signals, light rays, x-rays, and cosmic rays, as well as sound, behave like rippling waves in the ocean.
2. A telephone dialer that activates one of a set of desired numbers, coded into it in advance, when the user selects and presses a start button.
