The aberration of light (also referred to as astronomical aberration or stellar aberration) is an astronomical phenomenon which produces an apparent motion of celestial objects about their locations dependent on the velocity of the observer. Aberration causes objects to appear to be angled or tilted towards the direction of motion of the observer compared to when the observer is stationary. The change in angle is typically very small, on the order of v/c where c is the speed of light and v the velocity of the observer. In the case of "stellar" or "annual" aberration, the apparent position of a star to an observer on Earth varies periodically over the course of a year as the Earth's velocity changes as it revolves around the Sun, by a maximum angle of approximately 20 arcseconds in right ascension or declination.

In the following: L is angular momentum, a conserved quantity,resistance to changing rotation speed L does not have to be aligned with axis of rotation (full treatment requires a tensor) I believe L is a pseudo vector I is moment of Inertia. It's like mass in the (linear) momentum eqn but its role here is to (also) handle the distribution of mass wrt the spin axis. Basically the sum of all masses times their (r=distance to axis)². m is mass, kg but in 'm²' and 'm/s', it's meters r is radius, m v is velocity, tangential w is ω, > 0 for ccw rotation. Its units are really 1/s
ω has to be perpendicular to the motion

In short: - the cathode is usually negative - but some applications switch this. - CRT is an example - Always: the anode has the opposite polarity of the cathode. - in 'normal use', when a device is 'running off' a battery, the cathode is positive and the anode is neg. This arrangement is called 'galvanic' - when charging a battery, doing electro-plating, or driving several types of chemical reactions, the polarities of the anode/cathode are reversed. This arrangement is called 'electrolytic'. "In chemistry, a cathode is the electrode of an electrochemical cell at which reduction occurs." ?? WHOA! "electrochemical" means the solution/cell is being run like a battery charger. (that is, electrons are flowing into the cathode (traditional 'current' flowing out...) and these just-arrived electrons are being 'accepted' by the solution.) Cathode, wikip

Brewster's angle (also known as the polarization angle) is an angle of incidence at which light with a particular polarization is perfectly transmitted through a transparent dielectric surface, with no reflection.
When unpolarized light is incident at this angle, the light that is reflected from the surface is therefore perfectly polarized. This special angle of incidence is named after the Scottish physicist Sir David Brewster (1781–1868).

In 1827, while looking through a microscope at particles trapped in cavities inside pollen grains in water, Robert Brown noted that the particles moved through the water; but he was not able to determine the mechanisms that caused this motion. Atoms and molecules had long been theorized as the constituents of matter, and Albert Einstein published a paper in 1905 that explained in precise detail how the motion that Brown had observed was a result of the pollen being moved by individual water molecules, making one of Einstein's first big contributions to science.

The curl operator will, for now, be ©. 180310
The direction of the curl is the axis of rotation, as determined by the right-hand rule, and the magnitude of the curl is the magnitude of rotation. If the vector field represents the flow velocity of a moving fluid, then the curl is the circulation density of the fluid. A vector field whose curl is zero is called irrotational. The curl is a form of differentiation for vector fields. The corresponding form of the fundamental theorem of calculus is Stokes' theorem, which relates the surface integral of the curl of a vector field to the line integral of the vector field around the boundary curve.
The alternative terminology rotor or rotational and alternative notations are often used.
Unlike the gradient and divergence, curl does not generalize as simply to other dimensions; some generalizations are possible, but only in three dimensions is the geometrically defined curl of a vector field again a vector field. This is a similar phenomenon as in the 3 dimensional cross product, and the connection is reflected in the notation Del Cross for the curl.
The name "curl" was first suggested by James Clerk Maxwell in 1871.

A dielectric (or dielectric material) is an electrical insulator that can be polarized by an applied electric field. When a dielectric is placed in an electric field, electric charges do not flow through the material as they do in an electrical conductor but only slightly shift from their average equilibrium positions causing dielectric polarization. Because of dielectric polarization, positive charges are displaced in the direction of the field and negative charges shift in the opposite direction. This creates an internal electric field that reduces the overall field within the dielectric itself. If a dielectric is composed of weakly bonded molecules, those molecules not only become polarized, but also reorient so that their symmetry axes align to the field.

a vector operator that measures the magnitude of a vector field's source or sink at a given point, in terms of a signed scalar. More technically, the divergence represents the volume density of the outward flux of a vector field from an infinitesimal volume around a given point.
For example, consider air as it is heated or cooled. The relevant vector field for this example is the velocity of the moving air at a point. If air is heated in a region it will expand in all directions such that the velocity field points outward from that region. Therefore the divergence of the velocity field in that region would have a positive value, as the region is a source. If the air cools and contracts, the divergence is negative and the region is called a sink.

It acts like gravitational PE in that all that seems to matter is distance above a value chosen to be 0 ("ground"). Some material seemed to ignore (even) the sign, treating -v the same as +v.
The 1/r aspect is visible in the units of V: note the 'm; in N•m/C while E's units are just N/C. Nominally V's units are J/C which equals N•m/C.
J/C comes from W=VQ or V=W/Q
Also, it's worthwhile to fold in the dielectric constant of the medium so the larger process is visible. I'm using K_{d} below to represent a dielectric constant.
Replace k_{e} with k_{e}/K_{d}
Lastly, the equations can be written in a very readable shorthand F = k_{e} q_{1} q_{2} / r² # or F = k_{e}/K_{d} q_{1} q_{2} / r² # with a dielectric, K_{d} Notes, links to related info: 'van de graffs work best in low humidity' implies conductivity of air increases w/ humidity. electric field project, electric field sciCalcs electric field, wikip plasma, gsci Electromagnetism, wikip

The shape of an ellipse is determined by the ratio of minor to major. The size of an ellipse is controlled by scaling 'a' 'b', letting other params be 'whatever'.
ecc: eccentricity = sqrt(1 - (minor/major)² ).
ecc 0 is a circle while near 1 is a skinny ellipse.
foci, locating:
The semi-major and semi-minor axis lengths are measured from the Origin, the center of the ellipse.
"linear eccentricity" == Origin to focus distance
As I see it, there are 2 approaches to scaling/defining an ellipse: - 'math' considers the major-to-minor axis ratio. - 'orbit' starts with eccentricity and derives the ratio of 'a' and 'b'.
This ellipse shows an orbit in which the aphelion is 3.85 times the perihelion; the same number but totally different meaning. If Rb, the perihelion, is scaled to 1, the aphelion becomes 3.85. The major axis is now 4.85 . If we knew the minor axis, we'd have the 'a', 'b' coefficients to generate the ellipse (except for 'r', the scale factor).
The second focus will be Rb shy of the top of the figure. The semi-minor axis, 'smi', can be found from the triangle shown in the next section.
From the top focus to the bottom
of the orbit is 2f + Rb. The bottom focal point contributes another distance
Rb to the overall sum, now 2f + 2Rb. The distance from the 2 foci to point
'S', 2h, needs to equal the just calculated length or 2h = 2f + 2Rb.
smi = sqrt(h²) - f²) # divided by 2, substituted 'smi', cancelled f and -f,...
= sqrt(Rb²) + 2f * Rb)

F (Newtons) = -Us * NormalForce_Newtons. F always works against motion so it's never larger than the motive force. It'll never, on its own, create a motion (opposing the force in question). CAREFUL; don't blindly take the force and subtract it.
The friction coef between 2 materials depends on the materials themselves, possibly modified by moisture. The speed of the objects also affects the coefficient. Normal treatment simplifies all this by declaring 2 'coefficients' of friction, Us (static, no motion) and Uk (kinetic, moving). These coefficients are mostly determined by the materials. Uk is always smaller than Us.
Truly Fn = m G cos(θ) + 'finger force' and the resultant Fn times the appropriate
coefficient of friction determines (completely) the
friction force shown as 'F'; that is:
F = Fn * Us // in the common, static case.

L has units of henrys (H). Inductors have values that typically range from 1 uH (¤-6 H) to 1 H. Many inductors have a magnetic core made of iron or ferrite inside the coil, which serves to increase the magnetic field and thus the inductance.
Inductance of the air core (above) can be magnified greatly with a ferrite core (permeable core). The core, however, can _saturate_ in which case the field partly 'escapes' and the effective L is reduced.

An interesting, related calculation, from XAM p35, compares speeds at perasis against the speed of apoasis: ω_{a} r_{a}² = ω_{b} r_{b}² (// and ω == v/r) (v_{a}/r_{a}) r_{a}² = (v_{b}/r_{b}) r²implication: if ANY 2 planets have the same constant binding their period and orbit area, then all the planets around that star share the same constant, meaning it's a property of the star's mass !v_{a} r_{a} = v_{b} r_{b} # wow! valuable, useful v_{a}/v_{b} = r_{b}/r_{a} or, also valuable, v_{b} = v_{a}*r_{a} / r_{b} Law 3, rearranged algebraically, makes an interesting statement about _all_ the planets (and comets etc) orbiting one star (or moons around a planet): (t1/t2)² = (a1/a2)³ t1²/t2² = a1³/a2² expand t1²/a1³ = t2²/a2³ rearranged
The bottom equation is rearranged to solve for M, the mass holding the planets in
their particular orbits. By measuring 'r' and 'T' for an exoplanet, the mass of the star can
be calculated. See sciCalcs.html#ps_orbits

"Although this odd attraction was stated initially as an empirical law of nature and the formal calculation was explained as the direction of magnetic fields, as some other answers correctly explain, the root of this apparent oddity was explained by Albert Einstein with special relativity.
When two parallel wires have moving electric charges, let's say negative charges, then they see the non-moving positive charges of the opposite wire more closely spaced since objects in relative motion experience length contraction. This causes opposite electric charges to appear more densely spaced, thus more electrostatic attractive than the two moving charges which are at rest relative to each other. Einstein calculated the forces between these wires and proved that they are identical to the forces one would calculate using magnetic formulas. In essence, "magnetic" forces are just electrostatic forces observed in motion."

e0, epsilon 0 = 8.854187¤-12 F/m (Farads/meter) The relative permittivity of a material under given conditions reflects the extent to which it concentrates electrostatic lines of flux (eFlux). In technical terms, it is the ratio of the amount of electrical energy stored in a material by an applied voltage, relative to that stored in a vacuum (see: vacuum permittivity). Likewise, it is also the ratio of the capacitance of a capacitor using that material as a dielectric, compared to a similar capacitor that has a vacuum as its dielectric.

(from p18 of ref21): "The permittivity of a material determines its response to an applied electric field - in nonconducting materials (called 'insulators' or 'dielectrics'), charges do not move freely, but permittivity in Gauss's law for electric fields is the permittivity of free space (or "vacuum permittivity"), which is why it carries the subscript 0.
(also ref21): most precise units are C/Vm (Coulomb / VoltMeter). Most fundamental units C² s² / (kg m3). C/Vm == Farads/meter
(also ref21): Inside a dielectric, the amplitude of the total E field is generally less than that of the applied field.

S at 0K is about 0. more detail, from wikip: Zeroth law of thermodynamics: If two systems are in thermal equilibrium with a third system, they are in thermal equilibrium with each other. This law helps define the notion of temperature. First law of thermodynamics: When energy passes, as work, as heat, or with matter, into or out from a system, the system's internal energy changes in accord with the law of conservation of energy. Equivalently, perpetual motion machines of the first kind (machines that produce work with no energy input) are impossible. Second law of thermodynamics: In a natural thermodynamic process, the sum of the entropies of the interacting thermodynamic systems increases. Equivalently, perpetual motion machines of the second kind (machines that spontaneously convert thermal energy into mechanical work) are impossible. Third law of thermodynamics: The entropy of a system approaches a constant value as the temperature approaches absolute zero. With the exception of non-crystalline solids (glasses) the entropy of a system at absolute zero is typically close to zero, and is equal to the natural logarithm of the product of the quantum ground states. from ref18, chap 16, "Thermodynamics and Chemical Equilibrium" law 1: energy neither created nor destroyed. Or "total E is constant" and deltaE = q + w // q is heat input, w is work done on system. law 2: entropy of Universe increases during spontaneous reaction. (deltaEntropy=deltaS) .ge. q/T // q E and H are properties of the system. G is Gibbs free energy reactions for which deltaS > Q/T can be spontaneous, otherwise not. "all spontaneous processes in nature increase entropy of universe" law 3: provides means of calc'g E. Zero E is crystal at 0K (from Serway (?)) alcohol expands (fastest of common choices(?)) w/ T // max 85C 0 deg water and ice are at equal T's. => no E flow.

An isothermal process is a change of a system, in which the temperature remains constant: ΔT = 0. This typically occurs when a system is in contact with an outside thermal reservoir (heat bath), and the change will occur slowly enough to allow the system to continually adjust to the temperature of the reservoir through heat exchange. In contrast, an adiabatic process is where a system exchanges no heat with its surroundings (Q = 0). In other words, in an isothermal process, the value ΔT = 0 and therefore ΔU = 0 (only for an ideal gas) but Q Δ 0, while in an adiabatic process, ΔT 0 but Q = 0. praxis: 0% In isothermal process, no change in internal energy takes place. TODO check. after Delta installed...
model at terminals as open circuit.
Originally it applied only to DC resistive circuits. And each such could be modeled as a voltage source (battery like) and a single resistor. It also works, however, with AC circuits containing both resistive and reactive impedances. Doesn't always get the power consumption right.
All About Circuits adds: Thevenin’s Theorem states that it is possible to simplify any linear circuit, no matter how complex, to an equivalent circuit with just a single voltage source and series resistance connected to a load. The qualification of “linear” is identical to that found in the Superposition Theorem, where all the underlying equations must be linear (no exponents or roots). If we’re dealing with passive components (such as resistors, and later, inductors and capacitors), this is true. However, there are some components (especially certain gas-discharge and semiconductor components) which are nonlinear: that is, their opposition to current changes with voltage and/or current. As such, we would call circuits containing these types of components, nonlinear circuits.

dL/dt, units N•m; Ang Mom T = r χ F torqueAtWheel = torqueMotor / overallGearRatio * overall Drivetrain efficiency
"Mathematically, torque is defined as the cross product of the lever-arm distance vector and the force vector, which tends to produce rotation."
The magnitude of torque depends on three quantities: the force applied, the length of the lever arm connecting the axis to the point of force application, and the angle between the force vector and the lever arm. In symbols:
T = r χ F = ||r|| ||F|| sin(θ)
fgh: note that mechanical tracks or other constraints may prevent the force applied to be ideal (perpendicular to the radial line from the center of rotation) - hence the sine etc.
Torque, wikipThe torr (symbol: Torr) is a unit of pressure based on an absolute scale, now defined as exactly 1/760 of a standard atmosphere. Thus one torr is exactly 101325/760 pascals (~133.3 Pa).
Historically, one torr was intended to be the same as one "millimetre of mercury". However, subsequent redefinitions of the two units made them slightly different (by less than 0.000015%). The torr is not part of the International System of Units (SI), but it is often combined with the metric prefix milli to name one millitorr (mTorr) or 0.001 Torr.
The unit was named after Evangelista Torricelli, an Italian physicist and mathematician who discovered the principle of the barometer in 1644 Wikip
Vs/Vp = Ns/Np where Vs is the secondary voltage, Vp is the primary voltage, Ns is the number of secondary windings and Np is the number of primary windings. Divide the number of secondary windings by the number of primary windings, and multiply the source voltage by this ratio. This will give you the output voltage. For example, a voltage source that sends 240 volts through a transformer with 500 primary windings and 100 secondary windings would have an output voltage of 240 * (100/500) = 48 volts.

Its name: Historically called 'mu naught', written 'µ0'. The µ0 is staying around but standards boards have been pushing the name "magnetic constant". Units: wikip shows several equivalent sets of units for it: T m/A : Tesla meters/Amp. most popular (?) H / m : "henrys" (Inductance) / meter N / A² : Newtons per (Amps squared) 1.256¤-6 (= 4π ¤-7) T m/A (or Newtons/Amp) # magneticConstant Seems this is the reluctance of the vacuum to take on a magnetic field - that the success in building a field is like compressing a spring. The B fld is PE. Could be backwards; 'reluctance' doesn't quite feel right. Maxwell's cross terms suggest the e and m fields play off each other. // wikip 'Magnetic Field' article implies that the constant linking H and B fields // is none other than µ0 ! torque = m χ B = µ0 m χ H, in vacuum. The 4π typically present. But µ0 can be written 1.2566370614¤-6 Newtons/Amp². This is a 'defined value' and not the result of an experiment. wikip article Magnetic Fields discusses H fields (b/c perm magnets so avail(?)). When describing B field, article uses µ0 as above . When describing H field, they use µ0 as 4π ¤-7 (v*s)/(A•m)torque 'tau' = m→ x B→ = µ0 m→ x H→ // "same, up to a multiplicative constant, µ0"
terms being discarded: according to wikip (strong trend towards "magnetic constant") mu naught magnetic permittivity of vacuum permittivity of free space vacuum permittivity permiability of vacuum Utility. Where used. mid 1800's it was used to calculate the Speed of Light Ampere's Law wikip, µ0 = 1.256¤-6

Several of these derived units, like Tesla, are composed of several fundamental units. EACH unit, eg N/C * m/s, is a strong hint about how the Tesla (in this case) relates to other concepts and what a user in that area expects from a Tesla (numerator often N, Newtons, FORCE). (N/C)*(m/s) = This conversion factor will output N•m (the numerator) when given C/s (denom). This makes it worthwhile to know the various units, not just one.

In astrodynamics, the vis-viva equation, also referred to as orbital-energy-invariance law, is one of the equations that model the motion of orbiting bodies. It is the direct result of the principle of conservation of mechanical energy which applies when the only force acting on an object is its own weight.
Vis viva (Latin for "living force") is a term from the history of mechanics, and it survives in this sole context. It represents the principle that the difference between the aggregate work of the accelerating forces of a system and that of the retarding forces is equal to one half the vis viva accumulated or lost in the system while the work is being done.
For any Keplerian orbit (elliptic, parabolic, hyperbolic, or radial), the vis-viva equation:

A key notion regarding waves is that the matter of the supporting medium is not being moved permanently. It's displaced temporarily then returns to its original position. (physicists have never had surf break on them!)
Light waves are composed of both types of waves. The longitudinal part always obeys the speed of light but the transverse portion reacts to the index of refraction. (sorry. don't really understand this! fgh 171104). Feynman? QED book? soon

The energy needed to dislodge an electron from a specific metal. Reading on the topic suggests further that the needed energy is also dependent on the local conditions; that is, the electric field being made by the surrounding conditions and materials.
In solid-state physics, the work function (sometimes spelled 'workfunction')
is the minimum thermodynamic work (i.e. energy) needed to remove an electron
from a solid to a point in the vacuum immediately outside the solid surface.
Here "immediately" means that the final electron position is 'far' from the
surface on the atomic scale, but still too close to the solid to be influenced
by ambient electric fields in the vacuum. The work function is not a characteristic
of a bulk material, but rather a property of the surface of the material
(depending on crystal face and contamination).
