In science:

Another model invokes a microquasar; a relativistic jet ejected by an accreting compact object accounts for the γ-ray loudness in this case .
Multiwavelength Astronomy and CTA: X-rays
Increasing the sample of “ γ-ray loud ” RGs is important for several reasons.
Multiwavelength Astronomy and CTA: X-rays
Illustrated in table 3.2 is the sound intensity level required for perceiving sounds at various frequencies of equal loudness.
Music in Terms of Science
As a psychological quantity, loudness is difficult to measure and requires to take average over many tests.
Music in Terms of Science
There are also the limits of dynamics—the degree of softness or loudness beyond which it cannot be played.
Music in Terms of Science
In scientific terms, however, the meaning of “timbre” takes an unusual definition as that it “is everything about a sound that is not loudness or pitch” (according to the Acoustical Society of America).

Since the SSD exists only in the outer region when ˙m is small, it is consistent with the observational fact that radio-loud AGNs favor a spectrum without a UV bump (Kawakatu et al. 2009), which possibly arises in the inner edge of an SSD.
Launching and Quenching of Black Hole Relativistic Jets at Low Accretion Rate
Moreover, it is also consistent with the observational fact (Liu et al. 2006; Chiaberge & Marconi 2011) that most radio-loud AGN host BHs with larger masses (∼ 108M⊙), 5 An MCAF is formed when the accumulated magnetic field near the BH reaches the equipartition level.
Launching and Quenching of Black Hole Relativistic Jets at Low Accretion Rate
We interpret that these ergospheric jets ejected from the inner edge of the thin disks in AGNs result in (at least part of ) the radio-loud quasi-stellar ob jects; this forms a striking contrast to BHXBs from which no strong or steady radio emission has been detected in their SS.
Launching and Quenching of Black Hole Relativistic Jets at Low Accretion Rate
Historically, AGN have been divided into radio loud and radio quiet objects, i.e. those with and without a prominent jet emission.
The AGN phenomenon: open issues
Note that radio loud objects are generally thought to display symmetric jet emission.
The AGN phenomenon: open issues
Part of the problem here may be that any peculiarity may be a function of radio power, so that different studies can yield different answers unless they use the same definition of radio-loudness.
The radio background: radio-loud galaxies at high and low redshifts
This brings the total fraction of flat-spectrum quasars with a ratio between radio and optical flux of R > 10 — a value previously used to define a radio-loud quasar — to 40% in the PG quasar sample.
The Nature of Radio-Intermediate Quasars: What is Radio-Loud and what is Radio-Quiet?
We also find that the median R-parameter of these flat-spectrum quasars is lower than those of steep-spectrum radio-loud quasars.
The Nature of Radio-Intermediate Quasars: What is Radio-Loud and what is Radio-Quiet?
We show that this discrepancy is due to a population of flat-spectrum radio-intermediate quasars with 25 < R < 250 which can neither be explained as relativistically boosted radio-loud quasars nor as normal radio-weak quasars.
