system
A system is a set of interacting or interdependent component parts forming a complex/intricate whole
Got it
potential energy
In physics, potential energy is energy possessed by a body by virtue of its position relative to others, stresses within itself, electric charge, and other factors
Got it
kinetic energy
In physics, the kinetic energy of an object is the energy that it possesses due to its motion
Got it
Projectile motion
Projectile motion is a form of motion in which an object or particle is thrown near the earth's surface, and it moves along a curved path under the action of gravity only
Got it
inclined planes
An inclined plane, also known as a ramp, is a flat supporting surface tilted at an angle, with one end higher than the other, used as an aid for raising or lowering a load
Got it
Inertia
Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to any change in its state of motion; this includes changes to its speed, direction or state of rest

fluid
In physics, a fluid is a substance that continually deforms under an applied shear stress
viscosity
The viscosity of a fluid is a measure of its resistance to gradual deformation by shear stress or tensile stress
time period
Frequency is the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit time
compressibility
In thermodynamics and fluid mechanics, compressibility is a measure of the relative volume change of a fluid or solid as a response to a pressure change
pressure
Pressure is the force applied perpendicular to the surface of an object per unit area over which that force is distributed
surface tension
Surface tension is the elastic tendency of a fluid surface which makes it acquire the least surface area possible
