In geometry, the conic constant (or Schwarzschild constant, after Karl Schwarzschild) is a quantity describing conic sections, and is represented by the ... more

Geometric probability is the probability that the first occurrence of success requires k number of independent trials, each with success probability p. ... more

Viscosity is a property arising from collisions between neighboring particles in a fluid that are moving at different velocities. When the fluid is forced ... more

A conical pendulum is a weight (or bob) fixed on the end of a string (or rod) suspended from a pivot. Its construction is similar to an ordinary pendulum; ... more

A displacement is the shortest distance from the initial to the final position of a point. For motion over a given interval of time, the displacement ... more

Power is the rate at which work is done. It is equivalent to an amount of energy consumed per unit time. Power in mechanical systems is the combination of ... more

The nose cone section of any vehicle or body meant to travel through a compressible fluid medium (such as a rocket or aircraft, missile or bullet) is ... more

In fluid dynamics the Borda–Carnot equation is an empirical description of the mechanical energy losses of the fluid due to a (sudden) flow expansion. The ... more
