Magnitude ( ) - The Visual brightness of a star viewed with the naked eye. The Brightest stars are 1st magnitude, Dimmest are 6th magnitude. Each unit of magnitude is 2.512 times greater or smaller than the previous one ( 100 to the 5th root ). For example, a star of = 2.3 is 2.512 times brighter than one of = 3.3 while a star of = 7.0 is 2.512 times dimmer than one of = 6.0. Also see Absolute Magnitude.
The designation given to coordinates that indicate that the position includes effects due to the relative positions of the object and the Earth, the movement of the Earth around the Sun and the object in space.
the physical parameters of the earth measured by a geophysical system are normally expressed as apparent, as in â€œapparent resistivityâ€. This means that the measurement is limited by assumptions made about the geology in calculating the response measured by the geophysical system. Apparent resistivity calculated with HEM, for example, generally assumes that the earth is a homogeneous half-space â€“ not layered.
The magnitude of an object as view from the earth.
Capable of being seen, or easily seen; open to view; visible to the eye; within sight or view.
readily apparent to the eye; "angry for no apparent reason"; "had no visible means of support"
adj. Easily understood.
Appearing to the eye or mind (distinguished from, but not necessarily opposed to, true or real); seeming; as the apparent motion or diameter of the sun.
appearing as such but not necessarily so; "for all his apparent wealth he had no money to pay the rent"; "the committee investigated some apparent discrepancies"; "the ostensible truth of their theories"; "his seeming honesty"
A parent need not be apparent but "apparent" must pay the rent, so remember this word always has the rent.
