Terminology[edit]

Regarding this edit and your edit summary. I'd rather say "three-space momentum", "three-space velocity", etc, is an invention. It exists but is utterly uncommon, and I haven't seen it in any "heavy" RS. You can confirm this using Google scholar. YohanN7 (talk) 09:30, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Is what it replaced (e.g. 3-velocity) any better? —Quondum 11:33, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
Either 3-velocity or three-velocity (etc) would do equally well (about same number of Google scholar hits, some 100 000 as opposed to 20), and since we have adopted in our articles four-velocity, not 4-velocity, I'd say three-velocity and three-momentum is the best choice.

The vast majority of your hit count does not relate to this meaning. However, I do not intend to debate this with you: please move this to the talk pages of the articles concerned. —Quondum 12:07, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
What "vast majority"? I glanced through the first 50 hits (Google scholar will highlight), and all relate to this precise meaning: "three-momentum", "3-momentum" and your "three-space momentum". You are the one who is "arguing".
Just self-revert instead of wasting time. No need to bring the bleeding obvious to various talk pages. YohanN7 (talk) 12:55, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Where else?[edit]

Please tell me, where else did you put in the terminology in the above thread? YohanN7 (talk) 07:07, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
