INERTIA

The physical tendency of a body in motion to remain in motion and a body at rest to remain at rest unless acted upon by an outside force (Newton's First Law of Motion) [15].


INFINITE

(1) Extending indefinitely, endless. (2) Boundless, having no limits. (3) An incalculable number [1].


INFRALOW FREQUENCY

The band of frequencies from 300 Hz to 3,000 Hz [19].

INFRASONIC

Sounds below 15 Hz [10].

INPUT

The current, voltage, power, or driving force applied to a circuit or device [13].

INPUT END

The end of a two-wire transmission line that is connected to a source [10].

INPUT IMPEDANCE

Impedance presented to the transmitter by the transmission line and its load [10].

INSTANTANEOUS AMPLITUDE

The amplitude at any given point along a sine wave at a specific instant in time [12].


INSTANTANEOUS AUTOMATIC GAIN CONTROL

A circuit that can vary the gain of the radar receiver with each input pulse to maintain a nearly constant output peak amplitude [18].


INSTANTANEOUS VALUE

The magnitude at any particular instant when a value is continually varying
with respect to time [2].
