- Abvolt : Unit of voltage difference in the cgs-emu system of units; symbol abV; 1 abV = 1 erg/(s⋅abA) = 10−8 V.
- Calorie : The unit of heat equal to the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 kilogram of water by 1°C at 1 atmosphere of absolute pressure.
- Coal : A carbon-containing rock formed by the effect of bacteria, heat and pressure on the debris from the decay of ferns, vines, trees and other plants which flourished in swamps millions of years ago.
- Count Rumford : (1753–1814) An American born soldier, statesman, scientist, inventor and social reformer.
- Electromagnetic wave : A change, periodic in space and time, of an electric field E(r,t) and a magnetic field B(r,t); a stream of electromagnetic waves, referred to as electromagnetic radiation, can be seen as a stream of massless elementary particles, named photons.
- 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.
- Erg (unit) : A cgs unit of energy (obsolete); 1 erg = 10−7 joule
- Farad : SI unit of capacitance; symbol F: 1 F = 1 C/V
- Heat capacity : The measure of the heat energy required to increase the temperature of a unit quantity of a substance by a certain temperature interval.
- Heat of combustion : The energy released as heat when a substance undergoes complete combustion with oxygen.
- Heat : A form of energy that flows spontaneously from hotter to colder bodies that are in thermal contact.
- Ideal gas law : Relates pressure, volume and temperature for hypothetical gases of atoms or molecules with negligible intermolecular forces.
- Internal energy : Energy of a system in absence of interaction of the system with external fields
- International System of Units : Metric unit system based on the metre, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole and candela.
- Kilogram : The kilogram is the basic unit of mass in the International System of Units (SI, metric system).
- Lightning : Atmospheric discharge of electricity accompanied by thunder, which typically occurs during thunderstorms, and sometimes during volcanic eruptions or dust storms.
- Molar gas constant : A physical constant which is featured in a large number of fundamental equations in the physical sciences, such as the ideal gas law and the Nernst equation, and it is equivalent to the Boltzmann constant, but expressed in units of energy
- Moment of a force : The ability of a force to generate rotational motion about an axis.
- Newton : SI derived unit of force, named after Isaac Newton, equal to the amount of force required to accelerate a mass of one kilogram at a rate of one metre per second per second.
- Power (physics) : Rate of producing or consuming energy; SI unit: watt = joule/second.
- Second : 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 Second (disambiguation) for a list of available, more precise, topics. Please add a new usage if needed.
- Speed of light : A physical constant c describing the speed of electromagnetic radiation in vacuum. In the International System of Units the metre is the distance light travels in classical vacuum in 1/c seconds, using the defined value c = c0 ≡ 299 792 458 m/s (exact).
- Statvolt : Unit of electric voltage; symbol statV; 1 statV = 10−6×c volt; c speed of light in m/s.
- Tonne : A measurement of mass equal to 1000 kg, or almost exactly the mass of one cubic metre of pure water at 3.98 °C.
