For homogeneous isotropic materials simple relations exist between elastic constants (Young’s modulus E, bulk modulus K, and Poisson’s ratio Î˝) ... more

A uniform electric field is produced by placing a potential difference (or voltage) across two parallel metal plates. A uniform field is one in which the ... more

Momentum is a measure of an object tendency to move in a straight line with constant speed. Momentum has a direction and can be used to predict the ... more

In fluid dynamics, wave shoaling is the effect by which surface waves entering shallower water change in wave height. It is caused by the fact that the ... more

In celestial mechanics, the mean anomaly is an angle used in calculating the position of a body in an elliptical orbit in the classical two-body problem. ... more

Auger electron spectroscopy is a common analytical technique used specifically in the study of surfaces and, more generally, in the area of materials ... more

In physics, the Coriolis effect is a deflection of moving objects when they are viewed in a rotating reference frame.

Compound annual growth rate is a business and investing specific term for the geometric progression ratio that provides a constant rate of return over the ... more

Impulse is the product of a force and the time, for which it acts. The impulse of a force acting for a given time interval is equal to the change in linear ... more
