Elasticity (physics) print that page

In physics , elasticity (or stretchiness ) is the physical property of a material that returns to its original shape after the stress (e.g. external forces ) that made it deform or distort is removed. The relative amount of deformation is called the strain . The elastic regime is ]] | 2011/9/27 9:40:23

Plasticity (physics) print that page


In physics and materials science , plasticity describes the deformation of a material undergoing non-reversible changes of shape in response to applied forces. [ 1 ] For example, a solid piece of metal being bent or pounded into a new shape displays plasticity as permanent changes occur

Physics of glass print that page


The physics of glass is the science of the glassy or amorphous state of matter as seen from an atomic or molecular point of view. This article provides an overview of research into glass : a solid in which no significant crystallization has occurred. Thus, there is no long-range ordering

Solid-state physics print that page


Solid materials are formed from densely-packed atoms, which interact intensely. These interactions produce the mechanical (e.g. hardness and elasticity ), thermal , electrical , magnetic and optical properties of solids. Depending on the material involved and the conditions in which it

Field (physics) print that page

In physics , a field is a physical quantity associated to each point of spacetime . [ 1 ] A field can be classified as a scalar field , a vector field , a tensor field ,or a spinor field according to whether the value of the field at each point is a scalar , a vector , a spinor (e.g. | 2010/9/26 15:17:00
