Atletski bacački rekvizit.
1. A phonograph record.
2. A round flat plate coated with a magnetic substance on which data for a computer is stored.
ETYM Latin See Disk.
1. A disk used in throwing competitions; SYN. saucer.
2. An athletic competition in which a disc-shaped object is thrown as far as possible.
Circular disc thrown by athletes who rotate the body to gain momentum from within a circle 2.5 m/8 ft in diameter. The men's discus weighs 2 kg/4.4 lb and the women's 1 kg/2.2 lb. Discus throwing was a competition in ancient Greece at gymnastic contests, such as those of the Olympic Games. It is an event in the modern Olympics and athletics meetings.
ETYM Latin discus, Greek diskos. Related to Dish.
1. A thin flat circular plate; SYN. disc.
2. Something with a round shape like a flat circular plate; SYN. disc, saucer.
1. Magnetski uređaj za skladištenje podataka napravljen u obliku pice smeštene u plastično kućište.
3. Čvrsti disk.
4. Kompakt disk (CD).
5. Bilo koja druga vrsta medija koji možete da ugurate negde u računar.
A round, flat piece of nonmagnetic, shiny metal encased in a plastic coating, designed to be read from and written to by optical (laser) technology. It is now standard practice to use the spelling disc for optical discs and disk in all other computer contexts, such as floppy disk, hard disk, and RAM disk. See also compact disc. See disk.
(Computers) An electronic storage medium which may either be built into a computer (a hard disk), or may be a removable medium (a floppy disk, etc.); SYN. hard disk, floppy disk.
1. A round, flat piece of flexible plastic coated with a magnetic material that can be electrically influenced to hold information recorded in digital (binary) form and encased in a protective plastic jacket to protect the disk from damage and contamination. Also called: floppy, floppy disk, microfloppy disk. Compare compact disc, disc.
2. See hard drive.
In computing, a common medium for storing large volumes of data (an alternative is magnetic tape.) A magnetic disk is rotated at high speed in a disk-drive unit as a read/write (playback or record) head passes over its surfaces to record or “read” the magnetic variations that encode the data. There are several types, including floppy discs, hard discs, and CD-ROM.
Fixed disks provide the most storage. Up to 600 megabytes (million bytes) is quite common, although the hard disks of this type used with microcomputers may hold only 10 or 20 megabytes. Fixed or hard disks are built into the drive unit, occasionally stacked one on top of another. Removable disks are common in minicomputer systems, hold about 80 megabytes of data, and are contained in a rigid plastic case that can be taken out of the drive unit. A floppy disk (also called diskette) is very much smaller in size and capacity. Normally holding less than 1 megabyte of data, it is flexible, mounted in a card envelope or rigid plastic case, and can be removed from the drive unit. Recently, laser disks and compact disks have been used to store computer data. These have an enormous capacity (about 600 megabytes on a compact disk and billions of bytes on a laser disk) but, once written onto the disk, data cannot be erased.
1. A disk or tape that stores computer data. Sometimes, large hard disks are divided into several volumes, each of which is treated as a separate disk.
2. The loudness of an audio signal.
