Tension (physics) print that page

In physics , tension is the magnitude of the pulling force exerted by a string, cable, chain, or similar object on another object. It is the opposite of compression . As tension is the magnitude of a force , it is measured in newtons (or sometimes pounds-force ) and is always measured | 2011/10/4 6:41:16

Physics engine print that page


These are four examples of a physics engine simulating an object falling onto a slope. The examples differ in accuracy of the simulation: No physics . Gravity , no collision detection. Gravity and collision detection , no rigid body dynamics. Gravity, collision detection and rotation

Reaction (physics) print that page

cable as the same reaction would also exist in the absence of the cable. On the other hand, if the tension in the cable is pulling the mass upwards and preventing it from falling, then the mass is simultaneously pulling on the cable, with equal intensity and opposite direction. If this simple | 2011/9/14 10:10:14

Jerk (physics) print that page

In physics , jerk , also known as jolt (especially in British English ), surge and lurch , is the rate of change of acceleration ; that is, the derivative of acceleration with respect to time, the second derivative of velocity , or the third derivative of position . Jerk is defined by | 2011/5/26 14:28:45

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

Force print that page


In physics , a force is any influence that causes a object to undergo a change in speed, a change in direction, or a change in shape. Force can also be described by intuitive concepts such as a push or pull that can cause an object with mass to change its velocity (which includes to begin

Nuclear fission print that page


In nuclear physics and nuclear chemistry , nuclear fission is a nuclear reaction in which the nucleus of an atom splits into smaller parts (lighter nuclei ), often producing free neutrons and photons (in the form of gamma rays ), and releasing a tremendous amount of energy . The two

Basic physics of the violin print that page


violin (mainly the top and back), which allows the sound to effectively radiate into the air. The tension and type of strings, the bow, and the construction of the body all contribute to the loudness and tonal quality of the sound. Contents 1 Strings 1.1 Tension 1.2 Length
