- Clausius-Mossotti relation [r]: connects the relative permittivity ε
_{r}of a dielectric to the polarizability α of the atoms or molecules constituting the dielectric.^{[e]} - Dot product [r]: A type of vector multiplication in Euclidean spaces which produces a scalar result.
^{[e]} - Electromagnetism [r]: Phenomena and theories regarding electricity and magnetism.
^{[e]} - Gaussian units [r]: A centimeter-gram-second system of units often used in electrodynamics and special relativity.
^{[e]} - Intermolecular forces [r]: Non-covalent forces between atoms and molecules; often synonymous with Van der Waals forces.
^{[e]} - Lorentz-Lorenz relation [r]: An equation describing the relation between the density and index of refraction of a dielectric.
^{[e]} - Schrödinger equation [r]: A differential equation of quantum mechanics, describing the spatial and temporal behavior of wave functions.
^{[e]} - Speed of light [r]: A physical constant
*c*describing the speed of electromagnetic radiation in vacuum. In the International System of Units the metre is the distance light travels in classical vacuum in 1/*c*seconds, using the defined value*c = c*≡ 299 792 458 m/s (exact)._{0}^{[e]} - Stark effect [r]: The shifting and splitting of spectral lines of atoms and molecules due to the presence of an external static electric field.
^{[e]} - Van der Waals forces [r]: Weak forces between (closed-shell) atoms and molecules. Attractive for long distances, repulsive for short distances. Sometimes used as synonym for the attractive London (dispersion) force (the only attractive force between noble gases).
^{[e]}
