Subtopics

  • Matter [r]: Please do not use this term in your topic list, because there is no single article for it. Please substitute a more precise term. See Matter (disambiguation) for a list of available, more precise, topics. Please add a new usage if needed.
  • Matter (chemistry) [r]: In general chemistry, from the perspective of Newtonian mechanics, anything that occupies space and has mass. [e]

Other related topics

  • Atomic mass [r]: The mass of an atom expressed in unified atomic mass units (u) and formerly known as atomic weight. [e]
  • Chemical elements [r]: In one sense, refers to species or types of atoms, each species/type distinguished by the number of protons in the nuclei of the atoms belonging to the species/type, each species/type having a unique number of nuclear protons; in another sense, refers to substances, or pieces of matter, each composed of multiple atoms solely of a single species/type. [e]
  • Density (chemistry) [r]: A measure of the mass per unit volume of a gas, liquid or solid. [e]
  • Force [r]: Vector quantity that tends to produce an acceleration of a body in the direction of its application. [e]
  • International System of Units [r]: Metric unit system based on the metre, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole and candela. [e]
  • Kilogram [r]: The kilogram is the basic unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI, metric system). [e]
  • Kilogram-force [r]: A unit of force which will accelerate 1 kilogram of mass to 9.80665 m/s2, the standard average acceleration due to gravity on Earth's surface (referred to as gn). [e]
  • Laws of conservation [r]: The laws of science which state that a particular measurable property (or quantity) of an isolated physical system does not change (i.e., is constant) during the course of time. [e]
  • Pound (mass) [r]: A measurement unit of mass used in the United States customary, Imperial, and other systems of measurement. [e]
  • Pound-force [r]: A measurement unit of force which will accelerate 1 pound of mass to 9.80665 m/s2 (≈ 32.17405 ft/s2), the standard average acceleration due to gravity on Earth's surface (referred to as gn). [e]
  • U.S. customary units [r]: The units of measurement that are currently used in the United States. [e]
  • Weight [r]: The force with which a body is attracted to Earth or another celestial body, equal to the product of the object's mass and the acceleration of gravity. [e]
