- Acceleration [r]: The increase of an objects velocity (or speed) per unit time.
^{[e]} - Angular momentum (classical) [r]: The tendency of a rotating object to resist changes to its rotational motion.
^{[e]} - Born-Oppenheimer approximation [r]: A technique in quantum mechanics in which the kinetic energies of nuclei and electrons are calculated separately.
^{[e]} - Electromagnetic wave [r]: A change, periodic in space and time, of an electric field
**E**(**r**,t) and a magnetic field**B**(**r**,t); a stream of electromagnetic waves, referred to as electromagnetic radiation, can be seen as a stream of massless elementary particles, named photons.^{[e]} - Energy (science) [r]: A measurable physical quantity of a system which can be expressed in joules (the metric unit for a quantity of energy) or other measurement units such as ergs, calories, watt-hours or Btu.
^{[e]} - Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle [r]: The quantum-mechanical principle that states that certain pairs of physical properties cannot simultaneously be measured to arbitrary precision.
^{[e]} - International System of Units [r]: Metric unit system based on the metre, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole and candela.
^{[e]} - Mass [r]: The total amount of a substance, or alternatively, the total energy of a substance.
^{[e]} - Noether's theorem [r]: A theorem which states that any differentiable symmetry of the action of a physical system has a corresponding conservation law.
^{[e]} - Photon [r]: elementary particle with zero rest mass and unit spin associated with the electromagnetic field.
^{[e]} - Planck's constant [r]: The constant of proportionality relating the energy of a photon to the frequency of that photon, named sfter Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck.
^{[e]} - Quantum mechanics [r]: An important branch of physics dealing with the behavior of matter and energy at very small scales.
^{[e]} - Second [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 Second (disambiguation) for a list of available, more precise, topics. Please add a new usage if needed.* - Transport Phenomena [r]: The second edition of a classic chemical engineering book about mass, momentum and energy transport that was first published in 1960.
^{[e]} - Zero-point energy [r]: The lowest possible energy that a quantum mechanical physical system may possess; it is the energy of the ground state of the system.
