Tractive Force

As used in mechanical engineering, the term tractive force can either refer to the total traction a vehicle exerts on a surface, or the amount of the total ... more

Bending moments at any point along the span of a uniformly loaded cantilevered beam

A cantilever is a beam anchored at only one end. The beam carries the load to the support where it is forced against by a moment and shear stress. A ... more


In everyday use and in kinematics, the speed of an object is the magnitude of its velocity (the rate of change of its position); it is thus a scalar ... more

Angular velocity

In physics, the angular velocity is defined as the rate of change of angular displacement and is a vector quantity (more precisely, a pseudovector) which ... more


Gives the maximum value in a set of numbers. The maximum of a set (as defined in set theory) is the greatest element in the set. Unbounded infinite sets ... more

Gyromagnetic ratio for a nucleus

In physics, the gyromagnetic ratio (also sometimes known as the magnetogyric ratio in other disciplines) of a particle or system is the ratio of its ... more

Vickers hardness number for a giving area

The hardness number is determined by the load over the surface area of the indentation and not the area normal to the force, and is therefore not ... more

Magnitude of proper motion (μα*)

Proper motion is the astronomical measure of the observed changes in the apparent places of stars or other celestial objects in the sky, as seen from the ... more

Power-mechanics (Velocity)

Power is the rate at which work is done. It is equivalent to an amount of energy consumed per unit time. Power in mechanical systems is the combination of ... more

Number density (Relation to Molar concentration)

Number density is an intensive quantity used to describe the degree of concentration of countable objects. For any substance, the number density n can be ... more
