### Difference Between Force and Stress

// Sep 9th, 2012
Force vs Stress   Force and stress are concepts used in daily life for very commonplace situations, such as exercising power over something is usually being called force, and someone pressurized mentally being called stressed. Though their meanings are derived from the similarity they share in physical concepts,...

### Difference Between Force and Torque

// Aug 3rd, 2012
Force vs Torque   Force and torque are two very important concepts discussed under physics. Both of these concepts play a major role in fields such as mechanics, engineering, and almost all the fields in physics. In this article, we are going to discuss what a force is, what a torque is, and the definitions...

### Difference Between LBM and LBF

// Nov 23rd, 2011
LBM vs LBF   LBM and LBF are two units used to measure mass and force. LBM stands for Pound mass and LBF stands for Pound force. Mass and force are two very important concepts discussed under mechanics. These are two of the most fundamental physical quantities and are intuitive concepts. It is vital to have...

### Difference Between Newton and Joule

// Sep 24th, 2011
Newton vs Joule Joule and Newton are two units, which are widely used in the SI system. These units are extremely important, and a sound understanding in them is required. Read on to know, what Newton is, what Joule is, what are their definitions and finally the differences between Newton and Joule. What is Newton? To...

### Difference Between Energy and Force

// Sep 17th, 2011
Energy vs Force Force and energy are two fundamental concepts in both classical and relativistic mechanics. It is important to have a clear interpretation of these terms in order to excel in such fields. This article we will discuss the basics of the two concepts, force and energy, their similarities and finally...

### Difference Between Force and Momentum

// Aug 25th, 2011
Force vs Momentum Force and momentum are two concepts that are used in mechanics to describe statics or dynamics of bodies. Force and momentum are among the foundation and basic concepts involved in physics. It is vital to have a good understanding of both force and momentum in order to excel in any field even remotely...

### Difference Between Acceleration and Gravitational Field

// Aug 20th, 2011
Acceleration vs Gravitational Field Acceleration and gravitational field are two concepts discussed under mechanics in physics. These two concepts are equally important when it comes to the understanding of the mechanics of nature. It is vital to have a good understanding about acceleration and gravitational field...

### Difference Between Density and Weight

// Jul 11th, 2011
Density vs Weight Density and Weight are physical properties of matter. Both properties are related to mass. Both properties are widely used in physics and engineering to describe objects. Density Density is a physical property of matter, which is a measure of the amount of matter available in a unit volume....

### Difference Between Workdone and Energy

// Jul 2nd, 2011
Workdone vs Energy When you hit a golf ball with a golf club, you exert force on the club which in turn exerts force on the ball. So the energy of the golfer is transferred into energy in the club and finally into energy in the ball. We all know that the energy can neither be created nor destroyed and the total...

### Difference Between Impulse and Force

// Jun 8th, 2011
Impulse vs Force Impulse is an important concept in the study of collisions in physics and is described as change in momentum of a body which is in effect a product of its mass and the difference in its initial and final velocity. Now momentum of a moving body is given, according to Newton’s laws of motion as...

### Difference Between Scalar Quantity and Vector Quantity

// May 31st, 2011
Scalar Quantity vs Vector Quantity Math and physics are two subject invented by us to describe various phenomenon around us. This fits perfectly upon quantities that are measured using math and physics. Scalar and vector are classification of quantities in physics. There are some quantities that have only one...

### Difference Between Force and Pressure

// May 12th, 2011
Force vs Pressure Force and pressure are two important concepts in the study of motion in physics. While there are many similarities in force and pressure, they are totally dissimilar also. Students often get confused between force and pressure which is surprising considering both have different units of measurement...
