densi-, dens- +

(Latin: thick, thickly set, crowded, compact)

condensable, condensible (adjective); more condensable, more condensible; most condensable, most condensible
1. Capable of being compressed; able to reduce the volume of something: When Tim was packing his suitcase he used a space bag that was condensable by having the air sucked out of the bag.
2. Regarding something which can be abridged or shortened: The long story Jane wrote was certainly condensable for the magazine to print it, so she had to abbreviate it.
3. Pertaining to a substance capable of changing to a liquid: Plants in a greenhouse produce condensable vapor which precipitates as moisture in the air.
4. Referring to a liquid in which water can be removed: The milk Jane had on the stove was condensable and it thickened when boiling.
1. A product of condensation, as a liquid reduced from a gas or vapor.
2. Hydrocarbons that exist in gaseous form under reservoir conditions but which condense to a marketable liquid product when brought to the surface, either through natural differences in pressure and temperature or via a production process.
3. Any product of condensation; such as, water resulting from the cooling of steam, as in a process of desalination.
condensate well
A natural gas well containing a liquid condensate that can be separated from the natural gas either at the wellhead, or during the processing of the gas.
1. The act of condensing; the state of being condensed.
2. The result of being made more compact or dense.
3. A reduction of a book, speech, statement, or the like, to a shorter or terser form; abridgment.
4. A condensed form: "Did you read the whole book or just a condensation?"
5. The act or process of reducing a gas or vapor to a liquid or solid form.
6. In chemistry, a reaction between two or more organic molecules leading to the formation of a larger molecule and the elimination of a simple molecule such as water or alcohol.
7. The process by which atmospheric water vapor liquefies to form fog, clouds, or the like, or solidifies to form snow or hail.
8. The representation of two or more ideas, memories, feelings, or impulses by one word or image, as in a person's humor, accidental slips, or dreams.
9. The relative amount by which the density of an elastic medium varies from its average value as a sound wave passes through it.
10. A reaction of two or more organic chemicals, one of the products of which is water, ammonia, or a simple alcohol.
11. A process by which water vapor changes to dew, fog, or clouds; brought about either by the cooling of air to its dew point or the addition of enough water vapor to bring the mixture to the point of saturation.
1. Having the property of condensing.
2. Having a power or tendency to condense.
condense, condenses, condensing, condensed
1. To lose heat and change from a vapor into a liquid, or to make a vapor change to a liquid.
2. To make something, especially a food, denser by removing water, or become denser in this way.
3. To reduce the length of a text by removing unnecessary words or passages or by expressing the content more concisely.
4. To bond together to form a larger denser molecule, or to make molecules undergo this process.
5. To make more dense or compact; to reduce the volume or extent of; concentrate.
6. To reduce to a shorter form; abridge: "Condense your answer into a few words."
7. To reduce to another and denser form, as a gas or vapor to a liquid or solid state.
1. A device that converts a gas to a liquid to obtain either the substance or the released heat.
2. A lens or mirror used to concentrate light; such as, onto a transparency or specimen.
3. A chamber enclosing an array of tubes into which the exhaust steam from a steam engine is distributed and condensed by the circulation of cooling water through the tubes.
4. In refrigeration, a heat exchange coil within a mechanical refrigeration system used to reject heat from the system; this is the coil where condensation takes place.
condensing engine
A steam engine in which the steam exhaust liquefies in the vacuum space following discharge from the engine cylinder.
condensing turbine (s) (noun), condensing turbines (pl)
A steam turbine in which the exhaust steam is condensed and the water formed from this process is then used to supply the feedwater for the generator: Condensing turbines were built in the USSR at the Leningrad Metal Works in 1924.
dense, denser, densest
1. Having the component parts closely compacted together; crowded or compact: a dense forest; dense population.
2. Having relatively high density; as with, being rowded closely together; compact: a dense population.
3. Hard to penetrate; thick: a dense jungle.
4. Permitting little light to pass through, because of compactness of matter: dense glass; a dense fog.
