A list of Citizendium articles, and planned articles, about Momentum.

Subtopics

• Laws of conservation [r]: The laws of science which state that a particular measurable property (or quantity) of an isolated physical system does not change (i.e., is constant) during the course of time. [e]

• Acceleration [r]: The increase of an objects velocity (or speed) per unit time. [e]
• Angular momentum (classical) [r]: The tendency of a rotating object to resist changes to its rotational motion. [e]
• Born-Oppenheimer approximation [r]: A technique in quantum mechanics in which the kinetic energies of nuclei and electrons are calculated separately. [e]
• Electromagnetic wave [r]: 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. [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]
• Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle [r]: The quantum-mechanical principle that states that certain pairs of physical properties cannot simultaneously be measured to arbitrary precision. [e]
• International System of Units [r]: Metric unit system based on the metre, kilogram, second, ampere, kelvin, mole and candela. [e]
• Mass [r]: The total amount of a substance, or alternatively, the total energy of a substance. [e]
• Noether's theorem [r]: A theorem which states that any differentiable symmetry of the action of a physical system has a corresponding conservation law. [e]
• Photon [r]: elementary particle with zero rest mass and unit spin associated with the electromagnetic field. [e]
• Planck's constant [r]: The constant of proportionality relating the energy of a photon to the frequency of that photon, named sfter Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck. [e]
• Quantum mechanics [r]: An important branch of physics dealing with the behavior of matter and energy at very small scales. [e]
• Second [r]: 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.
• Transport Phenomena [r]: The second edition of a classic chemical engineering book about mass, momentum and energy transport that was first published in 1960. [e]
• Zero-point energy [r]: The lowest possible energy that a quantum mechanical physical system may possess; it is the energy of the ground state of the system. [e]
