  • Clausius-Mossotti relation [r]: connects the relative permittivity εr 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 = c0299  792  458 m/s (exact). [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]
