• ### Aerodynamics

Aerodynamics (shaping of objects that affect the flow of air, liquid or gas) is a branch of fluid dynamics concerned with the study of forces and gas flows. The solution of an aerodynamic problem ... > more
• ### Breaking wave

In physics, a breaking wave is a wave whose amplitude reaches a critical level at which some process can suddenly start to occur that causes large amounts of wave energy to be dissipated. At this ... > more
• ### Drag (physics)

For a solid object moving through a fluid or gas, drag is the sum of all the aerodynamic or hydrodynamic forces in the direction of the external fluid flow. It therefore acts to oppose the motion of ... > more
• ### Mechanics

Mechanics can be seen as the prime, and even as the original, discipline of physics. It is a huge body of knowledge about the natural world. It also constitutes a central part of ... > more
• ### Friction

Friction is the force that opposes the relative motion or tendency of such motion of two surfaces in contact. It is also the contact of two objects creating static electricity. It is not, however, a ... > more
• ### Phase (matter)

A phase is a set of states of a macroscopic physical system that have relatively uniform chemical composition and physical properties (i.e. density, crystal structure, index of refraction, and so ... > more
• ### Soap bubble

A soap bubble is a very thin film of soap water that forms a hollow sphere with an iridescent surface. Soap bubbles usually last for only a few moments and then burst either on their own or on ... > more
• ### Turbulence

In fluid dynamics, turbulence or turbulent flow is a flow regime characterized by chaotic, stochastic property changes. This includes low momentum diffusion, high momentum convection, and rapid ... > more
• ### Flow measurement

Flow measurement is the quantification of bulk fluid or gas movement. Volumetric flow rate is sometimes measured in "standard cubic centimeters per minute" (abbreviation sccm), a unit acceptable for ... > more
• ### Supercooling

Supercooling is the process of chilling a liquid below its freezing point, without it becoming solid. A liquid below its freezing point will crystallize in the presence of a seed crystal or nucleus ... > more
