Greek Alphabet and ScienceGreek Alphabet and SciencePhysics 2013TCS1BackgroundGreek letters are not only fundamental to our writing system and language, but also to our scientific and mathematic communities as they are often used to symbolize certain concepts.As this will be extremely important to your years work, you should take excellent notes on everything important!2 AlphaAngular Acceleration (physics)Thermal coefficient of expansion (chemistry)Helium atom (chemistry and physics)3 BetaBeta particles or electrons (chemistry and physics)4 Gammagamma radiation (physics and chemistry)Surface energy in (materials science) the Lorentz factor in theory of relativity (physics) The heat capacity ratio Cp/Cv in thermodynamics (physics)The activity coefficient in thermodynamics (physics) And many more.5 DeltaChange (ALL science and math)6 EpsilonArbitrarily small positive quantity (math)Limit Ordinal in set theory (math)Ratio of extension (physics)Electromagnetic field of a circuit (physics)The brightest star in a constellation (astronomy) And many more7 ZetaDamping ratio of a spring (physics)Effective nuclear charge (chemistry)Heat flux through a plane (materials science)Lag angle through a blade (engineering)And many more8 EtaRefractive index (physics)7th Brightest star in a constellation (astronomy)Elasticity (economics)DNA polymerase found in higher eukaryotic cells(biology)And many more9 ThetaPlane angle (math and physics)Population mutation rate (biology)Earth day (earth science)Brain signal frequency (neurobiology)And many more10 IotaUsed in APL and Go programming (Computer science)Imaginary #s (math)Unit vector (math and statistics)11 KappaCompressibility of a compound (Chemistry)Opioid receptors (pharmacology)Torsional constant (physics)Diagnostic reliability (psychology)And more12 LambdaSymbol for Aphex Twin (Pop Music)Wavelength (Physics)Conductance of a electrolyte solution (chem)Radioactive decay constant (physics)Charge density (physics)Type of particle (physics and chemistry)King Louis XIII s monogram and the symbol for the Spartan Army (HistoryAnd many more13 MuCoefficient of friction (physics)Magnetic dipole moment (physics)Important opioid receptor (pharmacology)Symbol for muon particle (physics and chem)Average population (statistics)Mu major cord (music)And many more14 NuStoichometric coefficient (chemistry)DNA polymerase in higher eukaryotes (biology)Degree of freedom (statistics)Frequency (physics)And many more15 XiImportant part of protein in embryonic red blood cells (biology)A universal set (set theory)And many more16 Omicron13th star in a constellationPlanet in Futurama and Star Trek17 PiHopefully we know what this isRatio of circumference to diameter (math and physics)A type of elementary particle: pi meson (physics)Osmotic pressure (chemistry)Profit (economics)And more18 RhoDensity (physics)Resistivity (physics)Charge density (physics) Discount rate (economics)Important RNA protein (biology)And many more19 SigmaType of bond (chemistry)Type of receptor (biology)Boltzmann constant (physics)Surface tension (physics)Electrical conductivity (physics)And more20 TauTorque (physics)Tau lepton particle (physics)Specific tax amount (economics)Type of chicken (jk)Golden ratio (math)And more21 UpsilonType of particle (physics)A type of car One other nonsensical thing22 PhiElectrical potential (physics)Work (physics) Angle of friction or second angle mentioned (math and physics)An aromatic containing compound (chemistry) And more23 ChiAbbreviation for Christ600Frequently used in statistics24 PsiWave function (physics)Type of meson particle (physics)Freaky rare acid symbol and specific angle in proteins (biochemistry)A type of sword (killing)And more25 OmegaThe end (whew!)Ohm or resistance (physics)Angular velocity (physics)A type of baryon particle (physics)Density of the universe (astronomy)Oxygen-18 (chemistry)And more26Other CharactersSan (M)Digamma (F)Stigma QoppaSampiSho Heta Tsan 27HmmmPerhaps a quiz next time.Remember I only focus on whats IMPORTANT, just like you should have in your notes!28
