One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
An unvarying condition in a physical process.
- ‘The electron can not be said to be really ‘moving’ - an orbital is a stationary state.’
- ‘Even though the electron is in constant motion, it does not emit electromagnetic radiation from a stationary state.’
- ‘Radiative emission and absorption corresponded to transitions between the stationary states, although Bohr gave no account of the mechanics of these transitions.’
- ‘Nevertheless, molecules absorb energy from the radiation but change from stationary states to non-stationary states.’
- ‘The main result will be that while each of the proposed processes alone only leads to stationary states, in combination they suffice to generate oscillations of the kind experimentally observed.’
