Hooke’s Law of elasticity is an approximation that states that the amount by which a material body is deformed (the strain) is linearly related to ... more

In optics, particularly as it relates to film and photography, depth of field (DOF) is the distance between the nearest and ... more

In magnetostatics, the force of attraction or repulsion between two current-carrying wires is often called **Ampère’s force law**. The

In optics, the Fraunhofer diffraction equation is used to model the diffraction of waves when the diffraction pattern is viewed at a long distance from the ... more

If the magnetic field is uniform and all other forces are absent, then the Lorentz force will cause a particle to undergo a constant acceleration ... more

For periodic compounding, the exact doubling time for an interest rate of r per period is a logarithmic formula, that can be used if we want to know the ... more

Energy density is the amount of energy stored in a given system or region of space per unit volume or mass, though the latter is more accurately termed ... more

Calculates the Sine value of angle θ(in degrees). The sine is defined as the ratio of the side opposite an angle of a right angled triangle to it’s ... more

Magnetic reluctance, or magnetic resistance, is analogous to resistance in an electrical circuit (although it does not dissipate magnetic energy). In ... more
