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

Electric field (due to a point charge)

The electric field describes the electric force experienced by a motionless positively charged test particle at any point in space relative to the ... more

Force (Newton's second law)

In physics, a force is any influence which tends to change the motion of an object.In other words, a force can cause an object with mass to change its ... more

Euler's pump and turbine equation

The Euler’s pump and turbine equations are most fundamental equations in the field of turbo-machinery. These equations govern the power, efficiencies and ... more

Malus' law (polarized light)

A polarizer or polariser is an optical filter that passes light of a specific polarization and blocks waves of other polarizations.

Triclinic crystal system (Unit cell's volume)

In crystallography, the triclinic crystal system is one of the 7 crystal systems. A crystal system is described by three basis vectors. In the triclinic ... more

Conic section (polar system and one focus on the pole and the other somewhere on the 0° ray )

conic section (or just conic) is a curve obtained as the intersection of a cone (more precisely, a right circular conical surface) with a plane. A conic ... more

Velocity at a distance x (for object following a ballistic trajectory)

A trajectory or flight path is the path that a moving object follows through space as a function of time. A trajectory can be described mathematically ... more

Radius of the turn of an upright bike (for small steering angles)

In order for a bike to turn, that is, change its direction of forward travel, the front wheel must aim approximately in the desired direction, as with any ... more
