- Acceleration due to gravity [r]: The acceleration of a ponderable object, which is near the surface of the Earth, due to the Earth's gravitational force.
^{[e]} - Classical mechanics [r]: The science of mechanics, which is concerned with the set of physical laws governing and mathematically describing the motions of bodies and aggregates of bodies geometrically distributed within a certain boundary under the action of a system of forces.
^{[e]} - Force [r]: Vector quantity that tends to produce an acceleration of a body in the direction of its application.

^{2}, the standard average acceleration due to gravity on Earth's surface (referred to as).**g**_{n}^{[e]} - Mass [r]: The total amount of a substance, or alternatively, the total energy of a substance.
^{[e]} - Momentum [r]: mass of a particle times its velocity (a vector).
^{[e]} - Pound-force [r]: A measurement unit of force which will accelerate 1 pound of mass to 9.80665 m/s
^{2}(≈ 32.17405 ft/s^{2}), the standard average acceleration due to gravity on Earth's surface (referred to as).**g**_{n}^{[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.
