- Acceleration [r]: The increase of an objects velocity (or speed) per unit time.
^{[e]} - Centrifugal force [r]: A radially outward force experienced by an object moving in a curved path
^{[e]} - Coriolis force [r]: 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.
^{[e]} - Dyne [r]: Force in cgs system; symbol: dyn; 1 dyn = 10
^{−5}N.^{[e]} - Electromagnetism [r]: Phenomena and theories regarding electricity and magnetism.
^{[e]} - Energy (science) [r]: 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.
^{[e]} - Equipartition theorem [r]: 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.
^{[e]} - Frame of reference (physics) [r]: An observational set of coordinates tied to the motion of an observer, used to describe physical events and possibly including a measurement apparatus.
^{[e]} - Force [r]: Vector quantity that tends to produce an acceleration of a body in the direction of its application.
^{[e]} - Free particle [r]: A particle not subject to forces, for example, in a 'field-free' space.
^{[e]} - Gravitation [r]: The tendency of objects with mass to accelerate toward each other.
^{[e]} - Harmonic oscillator (classical) [r]: A system which, when displaced from its equilibrium position, experiences a restoring force, proportional to the displacement.
^{[e]} - Inertial forces [r]: Forces introduced to enable the use of the laws of motion in accelerating frames of reference, such as rotational frames
^{[e]} - Inertial frame of reference [r]: A frame of reference in which the laws of physics take their simplest form.
^{[e]} - Isaac Newton [r]: (1642–1727) English physicist and mathematician, best known for his elucidation of the universal theory of gravitation and his development of calculus.
^{[e]} - Kilogram-force [r]: A unit of force which will accelerate 1 kilogram of mass to 9.80665 m/s
