    A unit of sound intensity level. The states of rest and motion are relative to the frame of reference. A mirror that diverges parallel light rays incident on its surface. No one has ever found this so-called 'energy', nor confirmed the uniqueness of its meridian pathways, nor verified, through proper double-blind tests, that any therapy or treatment based on the theory actually works.

    One can say that the mirror folds the length axis at the mirror, so that emergent rays to a real image at the left represent a positive value of s'. A long helical wound coil of insulated wire. Colloquially 'compared to'. Solenoid A cylindrical coil of wire that becomes electromagnetic when a current runs through Glossary of physics book Solids A phase of matter with molecules that remain close to fixed equilibrium positions due to strong interactions between the molecules, resulting in the characteristic definite shape and definite volume of a solid Sonic boom Sound waves that pile up into a shock wave when a source is traveling at or faster than the speed of sound Specific heat Each substance has its own specific heat, which is defined as the amount of energy or heat needed to increase the temperature of one gram of a substance one degree Celsius Speed The distance traveled by a body in one unit of time is called its speed. See: absolute uncertainty.

    The property of a metal that enables it to be hammered or rolled into sheets. A base that is soluble in water. A branch of Glossary of physics book that studies the physical properties of condensed phases of matter Convection The process of transfer of heat by the actual transfer of matter Crest The point on a wave with the maximum value Doppler effect The change in frequency of a wave for an observer moving relative to its source Ductility It is the property of solid material that deform under tensile stress Elasticity It is physical property of materials which return to their original shape once they are deformed. A pulse is also called a wave pulse.

He is the co-author of "String Theory for Dummies. The magnitude of the Glossary of physics book is called the dipole moment. A collision in which objects rebound from each other without a loss of kinetic energy. Physics for Kids Motion Glossary and Terms Acceleration - Acceleration is the measurement of the change in an object's velocity.

The change of phase from a liquid to a solid. The region of a longitudinal wave in which the vibrating particles are farther apart than their equilibrium distance. An induced current is in such a direction that its magnetic property opposes the change by which the current is induced.

A substance composed of antiparticles. When a student is told that electric field is force per unit charge and in the MKS system one unit of charge is a coulomb a huge amount must we obtain that much charge to measure the field?

Glossary of Biological Terms

This is due to the presence of other charges in the cell. Click here to Glossary of physics book out more. Two colors that combine to form white light.

An object with no overall positive or negative charge is said to be electrically neutral. Also, they act on the same body, not different bodies. It follows then that since chromosomes are inherited, all the features of an organism must be inherited. A counterpart of a subatomic particle having opposite properties except for equal mass.

Two kinds of changes of motion are recognized: changes in translational motion, and changes in rotational motion. The ratio of the mass density of a substance to that of water.
