In a sufficiently narrow tube of circular cross-section of radius “a”, the interface between two fluids forms a meniscus that is a portion of the surface ... more

Contact mechanics is the study of the deformation of solids that touch each other at one or more points. The Derjaguin-Muller-Toporov (... more

A spherical wedge or ungula is a portion of a ball bounded by two plane semidisks and a spherical lune (termed the wedge’s base). The angle between the ... more

Pressure vessels are held together against the gas pressure due to tensile forces within the walls of the container. The mass of a tank depends on the ... more

According to Stokes’ law, a perfect sphere traveling through a viscous liquid feels a drag force proportional to the frictional coefficient. The diffusion ... more

The gravitational binding energy of an object consisting of loose material, held together by gravity alone, is the amount of energy required to pull all of ... more

A spherical cap or spherical dome is a portion of a sphere cut off by a plane. If the plane passes through the center of the sphere, so that the height of ... more

The volume of the spherical dome, which is a portion of a sphere cut off by a plane, can be calculated by the radius of the base of the dome and the ... more

The exsphere of a face of a regular tetrahedron is the sphere outside the tetrahedron which touches the face and the planes defined by extending the ... more
