(f, W m-2) the amount of energy received per square metre per second, usually at a particular frequency (monochromatic flux) or integrated over a particular range (e.g., visual flux). Astronomers tend to quote apparent magnitudes (see below) instead of flux, mainly for historical reasons.
Number of photons per second within a defined energy band passing through a defined area. Units: photons / sec / 0.1% bandwidth
Any liquid added to another liquid to improve flow, usually to prevent the formation of oxides.
The rate of volume flow of a fluid or gas per second (or other unit of time).
Is the Flow Uncertainty Index. It refers to a financial model developed for the National Association of Insurance Commissioners to quantify the relative risk or variability of CMOs over a range of interest rate scenarios.
The flow of magnetic energy in a circuit.
A measure of the amount of energy given off by an astronomical object over a fixed amount of time and area. Flux measurements make it easy for astronomers to compare the relative energy output of objects with very different sizes and ages.
The amount of something (such as energy) passing through a surface per unit time.
Mass or volume rate of transfer through membrane surface, expressed as gal / ft2 / day.
The amount of radiation crossing a surface per unit of time, often expressed in "integral form" as particles per unit area per unit time.
Number of particles per unit area per unit time. The solar wind proton flux is 3 x 108/cm2-sec.
See Luminous Flux.
A flow of matter or energy of which direction, rate and density can be determined.
Generically; A flow through a unit area (i.e. W/m2).
Time rate of flow of energy; the radiant or luminous power in a beam.
an unusually copious flowing of a liquid from the bowels or another organ
power per unit area. The flux from the Sun at the Earth is 1367 Watts per square meter. This total power is often divided up into different frequency or wavelength bands, giving for example Watts per square meter per Hertz or ergs per square cm per second per micron. 1 Jansky is 10-26 Watts per square meter per Hertz.
In crossflow filtration, the unit membrane throughput, usually expressed in volume per unit time per area, e.g. liters per hour per m2. A relationship of flow to surface area; expressed in gallons per minute per square foot.
The amount or volume of a substance passing through a given unit of a membrane or filter in a given amount of time.
The rate of flow of a physical quantitiy through a reference surface.
the amount of flow per unit time (i.e. energy flux or radiation flux)
The rate at which energy or matter crosses a unit area of a surface.
the flow, or rate of flow, of a fluid.
The rate of particle flow over time.
The rate of flow per unit area of some quantity such as the flux of cosmic rays or the flux of particles in the solar wind.
The flow of molecules through a series of biochemical steps (i.e. a pathway); expressed as a rate, in units of chemical mass/time.
2nd-kind boundary condition defining a flow density in m/s or m2/s.
The flow rate of water through reverse osmosis membranes, per square foot of surface.
The amount of energy flowing through a givenarea in a given amount of time, usually expressed as counts per area persecond.
The rate at which a substance flows. The Watt is a unit of energy flux, because it indicates the amount of energy (in joules) that flows every second.
the amount of energy passing through a given area (e.g., one square centimeter) in a second. It is the apparent brightness of an object.
The radiant, or luminous, power of a light beam; the time rate of the flow of radiant energy across a given surface.
The time rate of flow. For example, volume per hour is the flux of a fluid.
