Elasticity is a term in physics used to describe the ability of an object to return to its original form after being distorted. Examples of objects with elasticity are piano wires, springs and rubber bands. More »

In the field of economics, the term "unitary elasticity" refers to a situation in which a shift in one factor leads to a proportional or equal shift in another factor, leaving original outcomes in place. This is particul... More »

Elasticity of demand is an economics term meaning the relative change in quantity demanded for a good based on a particular price change. High price elasticity means that a particular change in price causes consumers to ... More »

In physics, energy is a system's capacity to perform work, which is force acting on an object. Energy has many forms, including kinetic or mechanical energy, potential energy, light energy and heat energy. The basic rule... More »

In physics, "displacement" is defined as the change in position of an object, including how far the object travels and in what direction. If an object moves around but returns to its original position, the object will mo... More »

In physics, the tension on a suspended object said to be equal to the weight of the object plus or minus the mass of the object times the acceleration acting on it. In other words, this is the weight of the object plus o... More »

In physics and chemistry, the term "E" is often used as an abbreviation for energy in equations. Since energy can take different forms and has various relationships with matter, motion, light and other scientific concept... More »
