- Engineering : a branch of engineering that uses chemistry, biology, physics, and math to solve problems involving fuel, drugs, food, and many other products.
- Physics : The study of forces and energies in space and time.
- Classical mechanics : 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.
- Force : Vector quantity that tends to produce an acceleration of a body in the direction of its application.
- Mechanical engineering : The branch of engineering concerned with the utilisation of the basic laws of mathematics, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and system dynamics in order to create unique solutions to physical problems.
- Civil engineering : A broad field of engineering dealing with the design, construction, and maintenance of fixed structures, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and water supply and sewage systems.
- Acceleration : The increase of an objects velocity (or speed) per unit time.
- Acceleration due to gravity : The acceleration of a ponderable object, which is near the surface of the Earth, due to the Earth's gravitational force.
- Bar (unit) : A unit of pressure measurement (symbol: bar) defined as 100,000 Pascals.
- Dyne : Force in cgs system; symbol: dyn; 1 dyn = 10−5 N.
- International System of Units : Metric unit system based on the metre, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole and candela.
- Isaac Newton : (1642–1727) English physicist and mathematician, best known for his elucidation of the universal theory of gravitation and his development of calculus.
- Gravitation : The tendency of objects with mass to accelerate toward each other.
- Joule : The SI unit of energy (symbol: J) which is a measure of the capacity to do work or generate heat.
- Kilogram : The kilogram is the basic unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI, metric system).
- Kilogram-force : 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).
- Kip : Add brief definition or description
- Mass : The total amount of a substance, or alternatively, the total energy of a substance.
- Metre (unit) : Unit of length; one of the seven SI base units.
- Pascal (unit) : The SI unit of pressure; the force of one newton acting uniformly over an area of one square metre.
- Poundal : Add brief definition or description
- Pound (mass) : A measurement unit of mass used in the United States customary, Imperial, and other systems of measurement.
- Pound-force : 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).
