Constituting a proportion; having the same, or a constant, ratio; as, proportional quantities; momentum is proportional to quantity of matter.
Any number or quantity in a proportion; as, a mean proportional.
the relationship between ports, things, elements with respect to size, shape, degree, ratio, etc.
Two directly proportional properties are dependent on each other and increase at the same rate. In an ideal gas, the pressure is directly proportional to the temperature. Therefore if the temperature is doubled, the pressure also doubles (given a constant volume). However, the pressure is inversely proportional to the volume. If the volume is doubled, the pressure will be halved (given a constant temperature).
Magnitudes that have the same ratio.
one of the quantities in a mathematical proportion
X is proportional to Y’ means that when Y is multiplied by any number, so is X. ‘X is inversely proportional to Y’ means that when Y is multiplied by any number, X is divided by that number.
A constant ratio or relationship between two values. If one value changes, the other must change to maintain the same ratio.
(adj) Corresponding in size, degree, or intensity; having the same or a constant ratio. (If you have 4 plums and 7 pears in a bowl, and 8 plums and 14 pears in another bowl, the 2 are proportional.)
Changing with the same factor as another quantity.
Cause and effect relationship between two variables where a positive or negative change in the quantity of one causes a predictable similar quantity change in the other.
