- Continuity equation : Add brief definition or description
- De Laval nozzle : A de Laval nozzle is a tube, pinched in the middle, which is used to accelerate a hot, pressurized gas flowing through it to a supersonic speed so as to maximize the amount of the hot inlet gas heat energy that is converted into exhaust gas kinetic energy.
- Energy (science) : 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.

- Injector : A device that uses the Venturi effect of a converging-diverging nozzle to convert the pressure energy of a motive fluid to velocity energy which creates a low pressure zone that draws in and entrains a suction fluid and then recompresses the mixed fluids by converting velocity energy back into pressure energy.
- Laws of conservation : The laws of science which state that a particular measurable property (or quantity) of an isolated physical system does not change (i.e., is constant) during the course of time.
- Piping (engineering) : A system of pipes (hollow, cylindrical tubes) used to convey liquids, gases and sometimes other materials from one location to another within industrial facilities such as petroleum refineries, chemical and petrochemical manufacturing, natural gas processing, electricity-generating power plants and others.
- Pressure : A ratio equal to the force applied perpendicular to the surface of the area divided by that area (force/area).
- Reynolds number : Add brief definition or description
- Rocket motor : A means of generating thrust, for propulsion or for adjusting a position, based on the hot gases expelled by a mixture of chemicals that does not need an external oxygen source
- Specific heat ratio : The ratio of the specific heat of a gas at constant pressure, , to the specific heat at constant volume, , also sometimes called the adiabatic index or the heat capacity ratio or the isentropic expansion factor.
- Velocity : The rate of change of position, measured as a vector physical quantity, defined by both speed and direction in meters per second: (m/s) or ms-1 (SI units).
