# Topic: Metre per second

 Western Wind Energy (every second) must be the same as the amount of air leaving the rotor area to the left, the air will have to occupy a larger cross section (diameter) behind the rotor plane. With a wind speed of 8 metres per second we get a power (amount of energy per second) of 314 Watts per square metre exposed to the wind (the wind is coming from a direction perpendicular to the swept rotor area). v = the velocity of the wind measured in m/s (metres per second). www.westernwindenergy.com /education.php   (3015 words)

 Metre per second squared   (Site not responding. Last check: ) Metres per second squared is the SI derived unit of acceleration (scalar) and (vector), defined by distance in metres divided by time in seconds and again divided by time in seconds. It may be better understood when phrased as "metres per second, per second", i.e. the increase in speed (in metres per second), that is achieved each second. www.askfactmaster.com /Metre_per_second_squared   (68 words)

 Metre per second squared - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: ) Metres per second squared is the SI derived unit of acceleration (scalar) and (vector), defined by distance in metres divided by time in seconds and again divided by time in seconds. The SI derived unit of force, the newton, is equal to one "kilogram metre per second squared", meaning that a force of one newton is needed to give an acceleration of one metre per second squared to a mass of one kilogram. This is an illustration of Newton's second law (see Newton's laws of motion) in its simplest form, where acceleration is defined as the rate of change of velocity. www.newlenox.us /project/wikipedia/index.php/Metre_per_second_squared   (211 words)

 Force which is derived from Newton’s second law of motion, F is the force in newtons, m the mass in kilograms and a the acceleration in meters per second squared.

This is the mass that accelerates at one metre per second squared when pushed by a force of one kgf. www.ebroadcast.com.au /lookup/encyclopedia/fo/Force_(physics).html   (1139 words)

 Metre at AllExperts The other suggested defining the metre as one ten-millionth of the length of the Earth's meridian along a quadrant, that is the distance from the equator to the north pole. In 1893, the standard metre was first measured with an interferometer by Albert A. Michelson, the inventor of the device and an advocate of using some particular wavelength of light as a standard of distance. However, the International Prototype Metre remained the standard until 1960, when the eleventh CGPM defined the metre in the new SI system as equal to 1,650,763.73 wavelengths of the orange-red emission line in the electromagnetic spectrum of the krypton-86 atom in a vacuum. en.allexperts.com /e/m/me/metre.htm   (1026 words)

 Velocity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: ) In SI units this is metre per second Angular momentum in scalar form is the distance to the origin times the transverse speed, or equivalently, the distance squared times the angular speed, with a plus or minus to distinguish clockwise and anti-clockwise direction. If forces are in radial direction only, as in the case of a gravitational orbit, angular momentum is constant, hence transverse speed is inversely proportional to the distance, angular speed is inversely proportional to the distance squared, and the rate at which area is swept out is constant (Kepler's second law). www.leessummit.us /project/wikipedia/index.php/Velocity   (642 words)

 Krypton   (Site not responding. Last check: ) The SI standard definition of the length of the metre was, from 1960 to 1983, based on the light emitted by excited krypton atoms: specifically, the metre was defined as 1,650,763.73 wavelengths of the orange-red emission line emitted by krypton-86 atoms. This agreement replaced the longstanding standard metre located in Paris which was a metal bar made of a platinum-iridium alloy (the bar was originally estimated to be one ten millionth of a quadrant of the earth's polar circumference). A metre is now defined as the distance that light travels in a vacuum during 1/299,792,458 s. www.worldhistory.com /wiki/K/Krypton.htm   (689 words)

 Inertial frames and Newtonian mechanics (from Einstein Light) Okay, while I was carefully make my assumptions you beat me to it: the train has travelled 30 metres in the second, she is one metre further down the aisle, so she has travelled 31 metres with respect to the platform. At one moment she is walking at 1 metre per second down the aisle, and a second later she is doing 3 metres per second, so her acceleration a in the train (we'll assume it constant) is 2 metres per second per second. Well, making the same assumptions as before, he saw her first at 31 m/s, then a second later at 33 m/s, so he reckons that she accelerates at 2 metres per second per second also. www.phys.unsw.edu.au /einsteinlight/jw/module1_Inertial.htm   (1389 words)

 metre The metre (symbol: m, spelled meter in American English) is the SI base unit of length. The metre was originally defined in 1791 by the French Academy of Sciences as 1/10,000,000 of the distance along the Earth's surface from the North Pole to the Equator along the meridian of Paris and on April 7, 1795 France adopted the metre as its official unit of length. In 1983 the General Conference on Weights and Measures defined the metre as the distance traveled by light in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 of a second (that is, the speed of light in a vacuum was defined to be 299,792,458 metres per second). www.fact-library.com /metre.html   (360 words)
