In physics, jounce or snap is the fourth derivative of the position vector with respect to time, with the first, second, and third derivatives being ... more

Mechanical Power (Displacement)

Power is the rate at which work is done. It is equivalent to an amount of energy consumed per unit time.
The same amount of work is done when ... more

Petroff's Law - Bearing coefficient of friction

In the design of fluid bearings, the Sommerfeld number (S), or bearing characteristic number, is a dimensionless quantity used extensively in hydrodynamic ... more

Exponential Decay (with half-life)

Half-life is the amount of time required for the amount of something to fall to half its initial value. The term is very commonly used in nuclear physics ... more

Cross Section

The cross section is an effective area that quantifies the intrinsic likelihood of a scattering event when an incident beam strikes a target object, made ... more

Plateau–Rayleigh instability

The Plateau–Rayleigh instability, often just called the Rayleigh instability, explains why and how a falling stream of fluid breaks up into smaller packets ... more

Magnetic flux through a solenoid

A solenoid is a coil wound into a tightly packed helix. In physics, the term refers specifically to a long, thin loop of wire, often wrapped around a ... more

Orbital Period - as a function of central body's density

The orbital period is the time taken for a given object to make one complete orbit around another object.

When mentioned without further ... more

Power average (related to Work)

Power is the rate of doing work. It is equivalent to an amount of energy consumed per unit time. The same amount of work is done when carrying a load up a ... more

Surface Tension - surface area growth : energy
