Bivariate (two variable) quadratic function(x minimum/maximum)

A bivariate (two variable) quadratic function is a second-degree polynomial which describes a quadratic surface and has the form: f(x,y)=Ax^2 + By^2 + ... more

Elastic collision (final velocity of one of the two bodies in elastic collision)

An elastic collision is an encounter between two bodies in which the total kinetic energy of the two bodies after the encounter is equal to their total ... more

Compound lens' focal length (separated in air by some distance )

A lens is a transmissive optical device which affects the focusing of a light beam through refraction. A simple lens consists of a single piece of ... more

Perfectly inelastic collision

A collision is an isolated event in which two or more moving bodies (colliding bodies) exert forces on each other for a relatively short time. Collision is ... more

Lean angle due to a tire thickness of a bicycle

The finite width of the tires alters the actual lean angle of the rear frame from the ideal lean angle described above. The actual lean angle between the ... more

Flywheel energy storage (Energy density)

A flywheel is a rotating mechanical device that is used to store rotational energy. Flywheel energy storage works by accelerating a rotor to a very high ... more

Margin of safety for a failure load (measure of structural capacity)

Many government agencies and industries (such as aerospace) require the use of a margin of safety (MoS or M.S.) to describe the ratio of the strength of ... more

Alfvén velocity

In plasma physics, an Alfvén wave, named after Hannes Alfvén, is a type of magnetohydrodynamic wave in which ions oscillate in response to a restoring ... more

Knuckle joint (Maximum bending stress)

A knuckle joint is a mechanical joint used to connect two rods which are under a tensile load, when there is a requirement of small amount of flexibility, ... more

Klein bagel ( "figure 8" immersion x-coordinate)

In mathematics, the Klein bottle is an example of a non-orientable surface, informally, it is a surface (a two-dimensional manifold) in which notions of ... more
