objects
Traditional grammar defines the object in a sentence as the entity that is acted upon by the subject
Thermal energy
In thermodynamics, thermal energy refers to the internal energy present in a system due to its temperature
system
A system is a set of interacting or interdependent component parts forming a complex/intricate whole
Static electricity
Static electricity is an imbalance of electric charges within or on the surface of a material
frequency
Frequency is the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit time
photon
A photon is an elementary particle, the quantum of all forms of electromagnetic radiation including light
work
In physics, a force is said to do work if, when acting there is a displacement of the point of application in the direction of the force
