In incompressible fluid dynamics dynamic pressure (indicated with q, or Q, and sometimes called velocity pressure) is the quantity defined as ... more

Luminosity of a Star

In astronomy, luminosity is the total amount of energy emitted by a star, galaxy, or other astronomical object per unit time. It is related to brightness, ... more

Power average (related to Work)

Power is the rate of doing work. It is equivalent to an amount of energy consumed per unit time. The same amount of work is done when carrying a load up a ... more

Friction velocity (shear velocity)

Friction velocity, is a form by which a shear stress may be re-written in units of velocity. It is useful as a method in fluid mechanics to compare true ... more

Number density

Number density is an intensive quantity used to describe the degree of concentration of countable objects. Volume number density is the number of specified ... more

Modulus of resilience

Resilience is the ability of a material to absorb energy when it is deformed elastically, and release that energy upon unloading. Proof resilience is ... more

Particle diameter (phi scale)

Particle size, also called grain size, refers to the diameter of individual grains of sediment, or the lithified particles in clastic rocks.
