- Engineering : The profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences gained by study, experience and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to economically use the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind.
- Physics : The study of forces and energies in space and time.
- Hydrostatics : The subfield of hydrodynamics that deals with fluids (liquids and gases) at rest.
- Naval architecture : Add brief definition or description
- Acceleration due to gravity : The acceleration of a ponderable object, which is near the surface of the Earth, due to the Earth's gravitational force.
- Gravitational acceleration (a redirect)
- Aerostat : A vehicle, such as a balloon or an airship, which is lifted by buoyancy,
- Aircraft : A vehicle capable of sustained flight within the Earth's atmosphere.
- Airship : A buoyant aircraft that can be steered and propelled through the air.
- Archimedes principle : Add brief definition or description
- Balloon (aircraft) : Lighter-than-air craft that remains aloft due to its buoyancy, and without a propulsion system, lifted by inflation of one or more containers with a gas lighter than air or with heated air.
- Chemical Engineering : Add brief definition or description
- Density (chemistry) : A measure of the mass per unit volume of a gas, liquid or solid.
- Gravitation : The tendency of objects with mass to accelerate toward each other.
- Hot air balloon : Buoyant aircraft which uses a nonporous envelope of thin material that is filled with heated air capable of lifting a suspended payload into the atmosphere.
- Hydrometer : An instrument typically used to measure the specific gravity (SG) (or relative density) of liquids; that is, the ratio of the density of the liquid to the density of water with both at the same temperature.
- Ship : Vessel larger than a boat for transporting people, goods, or defence by sea, and capable of crossing open waters.
- Submarine : A ship or boat that can travel underwater
- Thermal airship : Airship that generates its lift via the difference in density due to a temperature differential between the gas inside its envelope and the ambient air.
- Zeppelin NT : Class of semi-rigid airships being manufactured since the 1990s by the German company Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH (ZLT) in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
