## Parent topics

## Subtopics

- 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]} - Maxwell equations [r]: Mathematical equations describing the interrelationship between electric and magnetic fields; dependence of the fields on electric charge- and current- densities.
^{[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]} - Standard Model [r]: A mathematical theory that describes the weak, electromagnetic and strong interactions between leptons and quarks, the basic particles of particle physics.

- Albert Einstein [r]: 20th-century physicist who formulated the theories of relativity.
^{[e]} - Astrophysics [r]: Hybrid of Physics and Astronomy that attempts to explain the physical workings of the celestial objects and phenomena.
^{[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]} - Ether (physics) [r]: Medium that can carry electromagnetic waves (obsolete)
^{[e]} - Gravitation [r]: The tendency of objects with mass to accelerate toward each other.
^{[e]} - Lorentz force [r]: Force on an electrically charged particle that moves through a magnetic and an electric field.
^{[e]} - Mechanics [r]: In physics, all theories explaining the behaviour of matter.
^{[e]} - Momentum [r]: mass of a particle times its velocity (a vector).
^{[e]} - Quantum mechanics [r]: An important branch of physics dealing with the behavior of matter and energy at very small scales.
^{[e]} - Radiation [r]: Transmission of energy through space.
^{[e]} - Redshift [r]: A term used in astronomy and physics to refer to phenomena causing an increase in the observed wavelength of electromagnetic radiation or an apparent decrease in the observed frequency.
^{[e]} - Speed of light [r]: A physical constant
