The Lorentz factor or Lorentz term is an expression which appears in several equations in special relativity. It arises from deriving the Lorentz ... more

Thrust is a reaction force described quantitatively by Newton’s second and third laws.

A very common question is how to contrast the thrust

Parabolas with axes of symmetry parallel to the y-axis have equations of the form y=ax^2+bx+c.

The x-coordinate and y-coordinate at the vertex can be

Sight distance is dependent on the type of curve used and the design speed. For crest curves, sight distance is limited by the curve itself, as the curve ... more

In solid mechanics, torsion is the twisting of an object due to an applied torque. The torsion constant is a geometrical property of a barâ€™s cross-section ... more

Karl von Terzaghi was the first to present a comprehensive theory for the evaluation of the ultimate bearing capacity of rough shallow foundations. This ... more

When a driver is driving on a sag curve at night, the sight distance is limited by the higher grade in front of the vehicle. This distance must be long ... more
