- Physics : The study of forces and energies in space and time.
- Engineering : a branch of engineering that uses chemistry, biology, physics, and math to solve problems involving fuel, drugs, food, and many other products.
- Standard Model : A mathematical theory that describes the weak, electromagnetic and strong interactions between leptons and quarks, the basic particles of particle physics.

- 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.
- Mechanics : Please do not use this term in your topic list, because there is no single article for it. Please substitute a more precise term. See Mechanics (disambiguation) for a list of available, more precise, topics. Please add a new usage if needed.
- Acceleration : The increase of an objects velocity (or speed) per unit time.
- Centrifugal force : A radially outward force experienced by an object moving in a curved path
- Coriolis force : An inertial force upon a moving object that is perpendicular to its velocity as that is seen from a rotating frame of reference, and also to the axis of rotation.
- Dyne : Force in cgs system; symbol: dyn; 1 dyn = 10−5 N.
- Electromagnetism : Phenomena and theories regarding electricity and magnetism.
- 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.
- Equipartition theorem : A general formula that relates the temperature of a system with its average energies, also known as the law of equipartition, equipartition of energy, or simply equipartition.
- Frame of reference (physics) : An observational set of coordinates tied to the motion of an observer, used to describe physical events and possibly including a measurement apparatus.
- Force : Vector quantity that tends to produce an acceleration of a body in the direction of its application.
- Free particle : A particle not subject to forces, for example, in a 'field-free' space.
- Gravitation : The tendency of objects with mass to accelerate toward each other.
- Harmonic oscillator (classical) : A system which, when displaced from its equilibrium position, experiences a restoring force, proportional to the displacement.
- Inertial forces : Forces introduced to enable the use of the laws of motion in accelerating frames of reference, such as rotational frames
- Inertial frame of reference : A frame of reference in which the laws of physics take their simplest form.
- Isaac Newton : (1642–1727) English physicist and mathematician, best known for his elucidation of the universal theory of gravitation and his development of calculus.
- Kilogram-force : A unit of force which will accelerate 1 kilogram of mass to 9.80665 m/s2, the standard average acceleration due to gravity on Earth's surface (referred to as gn).
