Definition: | quantity representing the quantities in a finite set or in an interval,- for
*n*quantities $x}_{1},\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{x}_{2},\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\dots \text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{x}_{n$, by the reciprocal of the mean value of their reciprocals:$\frac{1}{{X}_{\text{h}}}=\frac{1}{n}\left(\frac{1}{{x}_{1}}+\frac{1}{{x}_{2}}+\mathrm{...}+\frac{1}{{x}_{n}}\right)$ if none of the *n*quantities is equal to zero;${X}_{\text{h}}=0$ if at least one quantity is equal to zero; - for a quantity
*x*depending on a variable*t*, by the quantity ${X}_{\text{h}}$ defined by the reciprocal of the mean value of the reciprocal of the given quantity:$\frac{1}{{X}_{\text{h}}}=\frac{1}{T}{\int}_{\text{\hspace{0.05em}}0}^{\text{\hspace{0.05em}}T}\frac{1}{x(t)}\text{d}t$ if the value of the integral is finite; ${X}_{\text{h}}=0$ in other cases
Note 1 to entry: The harmonic mean value of a periodic quantity is usually taken over an integration interval the range of which is the period multiplied by a natural number. Note 2 to entry: The harmonic mean value of a quantity is denoted by adding the subscript h to the symbol of the quantity. | ||

- for a quantity
*x*depending on a variable*t*, by the quantity ${X}_{\text{h}}$ defined by the reciprocal of the mean value of the reciprocal of the given quantity:$\frac{1}{{X}_{\text{h}}}=\frac{1}{T}{\int}_{\text{\hspace{0.05em}}0}^{\text{\hspace{0.05em}}T}\frac{1}{x(t)}\text{d}t$ if the value of the integral is finite;
