 English term or phrase: jerks Flux at a point or ring detector - Fn units: particles/cm2 ; *Fn units: MeV/cm2 Energy deposition averaged over a cell - Fn units: MeV/g ; *Fn units: jerks/g Здесь Fn – имя карты (строки данных заданного формата). Даны единицы измерения величин, вводимых на эти карты данных. По тексту упомянуто: (1 jerk = 1 GJ = 109 J). Как назвать эту введенную авторами программы MCNP величину измерения? Просто джерком? (аналогично шэйку=10 нс, вопрос о котором был здесь задан некоторое время назад).

 джерк :-( Explanation:jerk a unit of change in acceleration sometimes used by engineers. This is not as silly as it sounds, because when we're in a vehicle and feel a jerk, we are in fact experiencing a change in the acceleration of the vehicle. One jerk is equal to a change in acceleration of one foot per second per second in one second, that is, 1 ft/sec3. One jerk equals 0.3048 m/s3 or about 0.03108g /sec http://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/units/dictJ.html --------------------------------------------------Note added at 2002-07-16 17:28:12 (GMT)--------------------------------------------------Jerk (in British English, jolt), also called surge, is the derivative of acceleration with respect to time. Yank is mass times jerk, or equivalently, the derivate of force with respect to time. Jerk is a vector; there is no generally used term to describe its scalar value. The units of jerk are metres per a second cubed (m·s-3). There is no universal agreement on the symbol for jerk, but j is commonly used. http://www.wikipedia.com/wiki/Jerk&diff=yes

Explanation:
а может на великом и могучем уже и джерк.. интересно только в механике?

neutral  Natalie: Увы, печально, но там был еще shake, который тоже переводится как "толчок". Я бы тоже с радостью отказалась от шэйков и джерков!

-> Наоборот, но все равно хорошо
