hysteresis

Definitions

  • WordNet 3.6
    • n hysteresis the lagging of an effect behind its cause; especially the phenomenon in which the magnetic induction of a ferromagnetic material lags behind the changing magnetic field

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • n Hysteresis (Physics) A lagging or retardation of the effect, when the forces acting upon a body are changed, as if from velocity or internal friction; a temporary resistance to change from a condition previously induced, observed in magnetism, thermoelectricity, etc., on reversal of polarity.

Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n hysteresis A lagging of one of two related phenomena behind the other. The changes in the thermo-electric and magnetic quality of stretched iron wire, due to cyclical variations in the stress to which it is subjected, lag behind the changes in stress, and this lagging is called hysteresis. The word is applied also to other physical phenomena of a similar character.

    • n Hysteresis his-te-rē′sis magnetic friction in dynamos, by which every reversal of magnetism in the iron causes dissipation of energy.
