Torsional Pendulum (Period)

Torsion balances, torsion pendulums and balance wheels are examples of torsional harmonic oscillators that can oscillate with a rotational motion about the ... more

Fractional bandwidth (RLC circuits)

The bandwidth as a fraction of the resonance frequency. Bandwidth is the difference between the upper and lower frequencies in a continuous set of ... more

Sears–Haack body (Wave Drag related to the maximum Radius)

The Sears–Haack body is the shape with the lowest theoretical wave drag in supersonic flow, for a given body length and given volume. The mathematical ... more

Dynamic Pressure

In incompressible fluid dynamics dynamic pressure (indicated with q, or Q, and sometimes called velocity pressure) is the quantity defined as ... more

Euler-Almansi strain

Deformation in continuum mechanics is the transformation of a body from a reference configuration to a current configuration.
Strain is a normalized ... more

Resistors in parallel

Resistors in a parallel configuration are each subject to the same potential difference (voltage), however the currents through them add

Newton's second law (variable-mass system)

Variable-mass systems, (like a rocket burning fuel and ejecting spent gases), are not closed and cannot be directly treated by making mass a function of ... more

Law of the wall

In fluid dynamics, the law of the wall states that the average velocity of a turbulent flow at a certain point is proportional to the logarithm of the ... more

Drift Velocity

The drift velocity is the average velocity that a particle, such as an electron, attains in a material due to an electric field. It can also be referred to ... more

Rayleigh Taylor instability

The Rayleigh–Taylor instability, or RT instability , is an instability of an interface between two fluids of different densities which occurs when the ... more
