Word Meaning Remarks
Linear accelerator Device to accelerate subatomic particles by applying successive electric field.
Linear relationship Relationship between two variables, x and y, summarized by the equation y= ax + b, where a and b are constant.
Linear restoring force Force in direction toward equilibrium position that depends linearly on distance from distance from that position.
Liquid Materials that have fixed volume but whose shape depends on the container.
Lodestone Naturally occurring magnetic rock.
Longitudinal waves Wave in which direction of disturbance is the same as the direction of travel of wave.
Loudness Physiological measure of amplitude of a sound wave; heard on pitch and tone color as well as amplitude.
Lumen Unit of luminous flux.
Luminance intensity Measure of light emitted by source in candelas; luminous flux divided by 4pie.
Luminous flux Flow of light from source measured in lumens.
Luminous object Object that emits light, as opposed to one that reflects light.
Lux Unit of luminous flux; one lumen per square meter.
Machine Device that changes force needed to do work.
Magnetic field Space around a magnet throughout which magnetic force exists.
Magnification Ratio of size of an optical image to the size of the object.
