Body Mass Index - BMI (for pounds and inches)

The body mass index (BMI), or Quetelet index, is a heuristic proxy for human body fat based on an individual’s weight and ... more

Radau parameter - related to Darwin / Radau equation

In astrophysics, the Darwin / Radau equation gives an approximate relation between the moment of inertia factor of a planetary body and its rotational ... more

Electromagnetic mass (transverse mass) by Lorentz

Due to the self-induction effect, electrostatic energy behaves as having some sort of momentum and “apparent” electromagnetic mass, which can increase the ... more

Leaning ( for bikes and motorcycles)

Bikes must lean during a turn to balance the relevant forces: gravitational, inertial, frictional, and ground support. The angle of lean can be ... more

Graveyard Orbit - Minimum Perigee Altitude

A graveyard orbit, also called a junk orbit or disposal orbit, is a supersynchronous orbit that lies significantly above synchronous orbit, where ... more

Kinetic energy (related to object's momentum)

In physics, the kinetic energy of an object is the energy that it possesses due to its motion. It is the work needed to accelerate a body of a given mass ... more

Centripetal Force

Centripetal force (from Latin centrum “center” and petere “to seek”) is a force that makes a body follow a curved path: its ... more

Electromagnetic mass ( longitudinal mass) by Lorentz

Due to the self-induction effect, electrostatic energy behaves as having some sort of momentum and “apparent” electromagnetic mass, which can ... more

Kinetic energy ( related to the object 's velocity )

The kinetic energy of an object is the energy which it possesses due to its motion.The kinetic energy of a point object (an object so small that its mass ... more

Moment of Inertia - Point mass

Moment of inertia is the mass property of a rigid body that determines the torque needed for a desired angular acceleration about an axis of rotation. ... more
