  Magnetic flux

  The dot product of the area and the magnetic field passing through it. Graphically, it is a measure of the number and length of magnetic field lines passing through that area. It is measured in Webers (Wb).

  Magnification

  The ratio of the size of the image produced by a mirror or lens to the size of the original object. This number is negative if the image is upside-down.

  Magnitude

  A property common to both vectors and scalars. In the graphical representation of a vector, the vector’s magnitude is equal to the length of the arrow.

  Margin of error

  The amount of error that’s possible in a given measurement.

  Mass

  A measurement of a body’s inertia, or resistance to being accelerated.

  Mass defect

  The mass difference between a nucleus and the sum of the masses of the constituent protons and neutrons.

  Mass number

  The mass number, A, is the sum of the number of protons and neutrons in a nucleus. It is very close to the weight of that nucleus in atomic mass units.

  Maxima

  In an interference or diffraction pattern, the places where there is the most light.

  Mechanical energy

  The sum of a system’s potential and kinetic energy. In many systems, including projectiles, pulleys, pendulums, and motion on frictionless surfaces, mechanical energy is conserved. One important type of problem in which mechanical energy is not conserved is the class of problems involving friction.

  Medium

  The substance that is displaced as a wave propagates through it. Air is the medium for sound waves, the string is the medium of transverse waves on a string, and water is the medium for ocean waves. Note that even if the waves in a given medium travel great distances, the medium itself remains more or less in the same place.

  Melting point

  The temperature at which a material will change phase from solid to liquid or liquid to solid.

  Meson

  A class of elementary particle whose mass is between that of a proton and that of an electron. A common kind of meson is the pion.

  Michelson-Morley experiment

  An experiment in 1879 that showed that the speed of light is constant to all observers. Einstein used the results of this experiment as support for his theory of special relativity.

  Minima

  In an interference or diffraction pattern, the places where there is the least light.

  Mole

  The number of hydrogen atoms in one gram of hydrogen, equal to . When counting the number of molecules in a gas, it is often convenient to count them in moles.

  Moment of inertia

  A rigid body’s resistance to being rotated. The moment of inertia for a single particle is MR2, where M is the mass of the rigid body and R is the distance to the rotation axis. For rigid bodies, calculating the moment of inertia is more complicated, but it generally takes the form of a constant multiplied by MR2.

  Momentum

  Linear momentum, p, commonly called “momentum” for short, is a vector quantity defined as the product of an object’s mass, m, and its velocity, v.

  Motional emf

  The emf created by the motion of a charge through a magnetic field.

  Mutual Induction

  The property by which a changing current in one coil of wire induces an emf in another.

  小编提醒:单词的记忆要靠长期的坚持,考生们一定要持之以恒,每天都拿出来看一看背一背,让这些词汇在大脑中形成长期记忆,这样就不会轻易地忘记背过的词汇了。
