Gravity measurement with seconds pendulum (Kater's pendulum))

A seconds pendulum is a pendulum whose period is precisely two seconds; one second for a swing in one direction and one second for the return swing, a ... more

Basic reproduction number for a population with an exponential age distribution

Mathematical models can project how infectious diseases progress to show the likely outcome of an epidemic and help inform public health interventions. ... more

Logarithmic Mean Temperature Difference

Frequency of a simple harmonic motion

The simple harmonic motion is a type of periodic motion where the restoring force is directly proportional to the displacement. The frequency of a simple ... more

Cross Section (discrete events)

The cross section is an effective area that quantifies the intrinsic likelihood of a scattering event when an incident beam strikes a target object, made ... more

Exponential decay

A quantity is said to be subject to exponential decay if it decreases at a rate proportional to its value. If the decaying quantity, N(t), is the number of ... more
