(Greek: shortcoming, deficiency; to be behind, to come late, to lag; later)
This hesteres unit of words is not related to a similarly spelled hystero- unit of words referring to the "womb" or "uterus"; and hysteria.
2. The lagging of an effect behind its cause, as when the change in magnetism of a body lags behind changes in the magnetic field.
3. A condition in which the state of a system depends on its previous history, generally the retardation or lagging of an effect behind the cause of the effect.
Specifically, the inclination of a magnetic material to saturate and retain some of its magnetism after the alternating magnetic field to which it is subjected reverses polarity.4. A time lag in the occurrence of two associated phenomena; such as, between cause and effect.
In cardiac pacing terminology, the number of pulses per minute below the programmed pacing rate that the heart must drop in order to cause initiation of pacing; it can be programmed in by a pulse generator.5. The failure of the manifestation of an effect to keep up with its cause.
6. Etymology: origin from the late 19th century, from Greek husteresis (now hysteresis), "shortcoming, deficiency"; from husterein, "to be behind", from husteros, "late".
The field is periodically reversed until the magnetic induction is a function only of the strength of the field and of its rate of change.
2. The loss of energy by conversion to heat in a system exhibiting hysteresis.
Hysteresis loss in a magnetic circuit is the energy expended to magnetize and demagnetize the core.
It uses hysteresis and eddy-current losses induced in its hardened-steel rotor to produce rotor torque.
An example: "Is your father well?" Is he yet alive?"2. A figure of speech in which what should follow comes first; or an inversion of the natural or logical order.
3. That form of fallacy in which someone asserts a consequent and then infers the antecedent.
