Some facts

  • Physical constants (sometimes called chemical depending on context) are physical quantities, whose value doesn't depend on time or space. Simply put, value of physical constant is always the same no matter when and where it is measured.
  • There are many physical equations containing one or more physical constants. Often they play a role of proportionality coefficient. Examples of such equations may be:
    • Clapeyron's equation (perfect gas equation):
      pv=nRTpv = n\fbox{R}T
      where:
      • p = pressure,
      • v = volume,
      • n = number of moles,
      • T = termodynamic temperature,
      • R = gas constant,

    • the force of gravity, i.e. the force that attracts two bodies with masses:
      F=G×m1×m2r12F = \fbox{G} \times \frac{m_1 \times m_2}{r_{12}}
      where:
      • F = force of gravity,
      • G = gravitional constant,
      • m1 = mass of the first body,
      • m2 = mass of the second body,
      • r = distance between bodies,

    • photon's energy:
      Ephoton=h×cλE_{photon} = \frac{\fbox{h} \times \fbox{c}}{ \lambda}
      where:
      • h = Planck's constant,
      • c = speed of light in vacuum,
      • λ = wavelength.
