B[edit]

Under B Magnetic Field is not listed as a possible thing to call it, though alternate name like Magnetic Flux Density are given. I can cite textbooks that call B the Magnetic Field as well, so could that be added to the article?

Question[edit]

What are the bold symbols? What is the significance of the bold, and shouldn't it be stated in the article?

Alphabetize and speed of light[edit]

somebody wants to alphabetize?

Is it just me or did we forget c? You know, the speed of light? —Preceding unsigned comment added by N88819 (talkcontribs) 20:56, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

This isn't a stub[edit]

It provides all the information this article should provide, so I removed the stub designation. It could use some elaboration, but it doesn't need much.

Incorrect capitalisation[edit]

Capitalisation of unit names is not in accordance with SI, please research, correct and add explanation. GilesW (talk) 19:01, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Separate section for constants[edit]

I was wondering if constants (such as c, e, pi, etc.) should be put in a separate section/table. I would suggest the constant table's columns would be for the symbol (c), what the symbol represents (speed of light in a vacuum), and the quantity (299,792,458 meters per second (m/s)).

Stiffness[edit]

I noticed that stiffness (k) is not listed here. It is my understanding that it is a common physics notation, so is there a reason it shouldn't be here, or should it be added? — Tuxipεdia(talk) 21:24, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
