2. A meter that measures magnetic flux by the current it generates in a coil.
2. An instrument that measures a small electric current by measuring the mechanical motion derived from electromagnetic or electrodynamic forces produced by the current.
Galvanometers can be used directly as ammeters, and are the core element of many ohmmeters and voltmeters.
2. Absolute geochronology, in which events are assigned (approximate) dates in relation to the present instead of to other events.
3. Measurement of geologic time, as through isotopic-radioactive decay.
2. Determined by geometry; as, a geometrical solution of a problem.
Geometrical is often used in a limited or strictly technical sense, as opposed to mechanical; therefore, a construction or solution is geometrical which can be made by ruler and compasses; that is, by means of right lines and circles.
2. With respect to geometry.
3. According to the rules or laws of geometry.
2. A branch of mathematics that is concerned with the properties and relationships of points, lines, angles, curves, surfaces, and solids.
3. In nuclear medicine, any of the various arrangements between a radioactive source and a detector that affects the accuracy of counting or measurement.
2. The study of the earth's heat and temperatures, and their effects on geologic processes.
3. The study of the earth's heat and subsurface temperatures.
4. In geology, a mineral or aggregate of minerals whose presence defines the temperature range of limits within which the minerals were formed; also known as a geologic thermometer.
