adjective, Also, dynamical
pertaining to or characterized by energy or effective action; vigorously active or forceful; energetic:
the dynamic president of the firm.
pertaining to the science of dynamics.
of or relating to the range of volume of musical sound.
Computers. (of data storage, processing, or programming) affected by the passage of time or the presence or absence of power: Dynamic memory must be constantly refreshed to avoid losing data.
Dynamic websites contain Web pages that are generated in real time.
a basic or dynamic force, especially one that motivates, affects development or stability, etc.
(functioning as sing) the branch of mechanics concerned with the forces that change or produce the motions of bodies Compare statics, kinematics
(functioning as sing) the branch of mechanics that includes statics and kinetics See statics, kinetics
(functioning as sing) the branch of any science concerned with forces
those forces that produce change in any field or system
of or concerned with energy or forces that produce motion, as opposed to static
of or concerned with dynamics
Also dynamical. characterized by force of personality, ambition, energy, new ideas, etc
(music) of, relating to, or indicating dynamics: dynamic marks
(computing) (of a memory) needing its contents refreshed periodically Compare static (sense 8)
as a branch of physics, 1789, from dynamic (adj.); also see -ics.
1817 as a term in philosophy; 1827 in the sense “pertaining to force producing motion” (the opposite of static), from French dynamique introduced by German mathematician Gottfried Leibnitz (1646-1716) in 1691 from Greek dynamikos “powerful,” from dynamis “power,” from dynasthai “to be able, to have power, be strong enough,” of unknown origin. The figurative sense of “active, potent, energetic” is from 1856 (in Emerson). Related: Dynamically.
“energetic force; motive force,” 1894, from dynamic (adj.).
dynamics dy·nam·ics (dī-nām’ĭks)
The branch of physics that deals with the effects of forces on the motions of bodies. Also called kinetics. Compare kinematics.
noun 1. resistance of a structure to loads applied suddenly, as during an earthquake.
- Dynamic stretching
noun a type of sports fitness routine in which momentum and active muscular effort are used to stretch and the end position is not held Examples Walking lunges is an example of dynamic stretch.
- Dynamic typing
programming Enforcement of type rules at run time as opposed to compile time. Dynamic typing catches more errors as run-time exceptions than static typing. Tcl, Perl, PHP, Python and Visual Basic are examples of dynamically typed languages. A dynamically typed language may have strong typing or weak typing. (2004-07-20)
noun, Physics. 1. . noun, Physics. 1. the measure of the viscosity of a fluid, equal to the force per unit area required to maintain a difference of velocity of one unit distance per unit time between two parallel planes in the fluid that lie in the direction of flow and are separated by one […]
