Sentences Containing 'kinetic'

In 1836, he published a calculation of the mean molecular speed in a gas based on his kinetic theory and hence the speed of sound.
In chemistry, nuclear physics, and particle physics, inelastic scattering is a fundamental scattering process in which the kinetic energy of an incident particle is not conserved (in contrast to elastic scattering).
In November 2013, the Museum opened "5000 Moving Parts", a year-long exhibition of kinetic art, featuring the work of Ganson, Anne Lilly, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, John Douglas Powers, and Takis.
Its published results did much to bring about general acceptance of Joule's work and the kinetic theory.
John G. Harries considered a common ground in the ideas that underlie developments in 20th-century art such as Serial art, Systems Art, Constructivism and Kinetic art.

Such a symmetry will not forbid Higgs kinetic terms like formula_7 or tachyonic mass terms like formula_8 or self-coupling terms like formula_9 (fortunately!)
The decrease of angular momentum is transferred as kinetic energy to the outer vortex, resulting in separated flows of hot and cold gas.
