The process of extracting soluble substances from organic material and the like, whereby a quantity of saturated solvent is displaced, or removed, for another quantity of the solvent.
(n) The linear or angular distance moved by a part or mechanism. In cam design, a displacement diagram is used to chart the linear location of the follower relative to the angular position of the cam.
The apparent change in position of objects in an aerial photograph which project above (or below) scale datum. This is a geometric feature of photography that is normal and in many cases useful to the interpretation process.
a shift of criminal activity from one spatial location to another.
(1) The distance between the logging tool measure points for various parameters measured by a combination logging tool. Also, the correction necessary to record all parameters at the same depth reference.(2) Pertaining to the dipmeter, it is the vertical distance in the hole between equivalent responses measured at different quadrants in the hole.(3) Also refers to the replacement of a portion of the interstitial fluids by borehole fluids, near the borehole, during the invasion process.
The amount of movement measured in metres (m) in metric. Displacement of the ground is hard to measure for ground vibration as there is no stable reference point against which to measure the movement.
Any shift in the position of an image on a photograph which does not alter the perspective characteristics of the photograph (i.e., shift due to tilt of the photograph, scale change in the photograph and relief of the objects photographed).
A vector quantity, the distance travelled in a given direction[ edit][ edit][ edit][ edit][ edit][ edit
a vector quantity which indicates how far our of place an object is at the end of the motion relative to the beginning of the motion
The vector quantity of distance. It is known as the shortest distance along a single line from the beginning to the end.
overall change in position from start to finish.
put out of a place; removal from a position of authority
Displacement is a vector quantity, the magnitude of which is equal to the distance. The measurement '4 miles north' is an example of a displacement. Measuring Distance
The straight-line distance between two points.
A change in position. A displacement may be a translation rotation or a combination of those.
Removal from the normal position or place.
The change in distance or position of an object relative to a reference.
The term for a change in position, it differs from distance because it is a vector quantity.
The result of movement of a structural or cosmetic element from its proper position, due to settlement or shifting. Frequently marked by a complete separation of the element.
A shift in the position of an image on an aerial photograph due to tilt, local variations in relief or scale changes.
A process by which the atmosphere originally present in a confined space is shifted or replaced by another. A typical example is the accidental introduction of a heavier than air "displacing" gas such as argon into a confined space. The argon tends to form a density dependent layer near the bottom of the confined space which displaces the atmosphere previously present, frequently resulting in a hazardous oxygen deficiency.
change of position, or distance, usually measured from mean position or position of rest. Usually applies to uniaxial, less often to angular motion.
Any shift in the position of a point, line or feature on a photograph.
The measured distance traveled by a point from its position at rest. Peak to peak displacement is the total measured movement of a vibrating point between its positive and negative extremes. Measurement units expressed as inches or millinches.
The difference between the initial position of a reference point and any later position. The amount any point affected by an earthquake has moved from where it was before the earthquake.
To push out of the normal position, such as a shoulder.
