A crop is a plant or animal product that can be grown and harvested extensively for profit or subsistence.
A de Laval nozzle (or convergent-divergent nozzle, CD nozzle or con-di nozzle) is a tube that is pinched in the middle, making a carefully balanced, asymmetric hourglass shape.
A deodorant is a substance applied to the body to prevent body odor caused by the bacterial breakdown of perspiration in armpits, feet, and other areas of the body.
A die is a specialized tool used in manufacturing industries to cut or shape material mostly using a press.
An electric light is a device that produces visible light from electric current.
Extrusion is a process used to create objects of a fixed cross-sectional profile.
A fighter aircraft is a military aircraft designed primarily for air-to-air combat against other aircraft, as opposed to bombers and attack aircraft, whose main mission is to attack ground targets.
In physics, a fluid is a substance that continually deforms (flows) under an applied shear stress.
A forge is a type of hearth used for heating metals, or the workplace (smithy) where such a hearth is located.
A fountain (from the Latin "fons" (genitive "fontis"), a source or spring) is a piece of architecture which pours water into a basin or jets it into the air to supply drinking water and/or for a decorative or dramatic effect.
Gas is one of the four fundamental states of matter (the others being solid, liquid, and plasma).
Gas lighting is production of artificial light from combustion of a gaseous fuel, such as hydrogen, methane, carbon monoxide, propane, butane, acetylene, ethylene, or natural gas.
In cooking, a gas stove is a cooker/stove which uses syngas, natural gas, propane, butane, liquefied petroleum gas or other flammable gas as a fuel source.
Gasoline (American English), or petrol (British English), is a transparent, petroleum-derived liquid that is used primarily as a fuel in spark-ignited internal combustion engines.
Hot blast refers to the preheating of air blown into a blast furnace or other metallurgical process.
In aerodynamics, a hypersonic speed is one that is highly supersonic.
An internal combustion engine (ICE) is a heat engine where the combustion of a fuel occurs with an oxidizer (usually air) in a combustion chamber that is an integral part of the working fluid flow circuit.
In thermodynamics, the internal energy of a system is the energy contained within the system, excluding the kinetic energy of motion of the system as a whole and the potential energy of the system as a whole due to external force fields.
Irrigation is the application of controlled amounts of water to plants at needed intervals.
An Irrigation sprinkler is a device used to irrigate agricultural crops, lawns, landscapes, golf courses, and other areas.
Jacuzzi Brands Corp. is an Italian-American corporation that produces whirlpool bathtubs and hot tub spas.
In physics, the kinetic energy of an object is the energy that it possesses due to its motion.
In fluid dynamics, laminar flow (or streamline flow) occurs when a fluid flows in parallel layers, with no disruption between the layers.
A liquid is a nearly incompressible fluid that conforms to the shape of its container but retains a (nearly) constant volume independent of pressure.
In fluid dynamics, the Mach number (M or Ma) is a dimensionless quantity representing the ratio of flow velocity past a boundary to the local speed of sound.
A magnetic field is a vector field that describes the magnetic influence of electrical currents and magnetized materials.
A magnetic nozzle is a convergent-divergent magnetic field that guides, expands and accelerates a plasma jet into vacuum for the purpose of space propulsion.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is an independent agency of the executive branch of the United States federal government responsible for the civilian space program, as well as aeronautics and aerospace research.
An orifice plate is a device used for measuring flow rate, for reducing pressure or for restricting flow (in the latter two cases it is often called a). Either a volumetric or mass flow rate may be determined, depending on the calculation associated with the orifice plate.
An oven is a thermally insulated chamber used for the heating, baking, or drying of a substance, and most commonly used for cooking.
A pipe is a tubular section or hollow cylinder, usually but not necessarily of circular cross-section, used mainly to convey substances which can flow — liquids and gases (fluids), slurries, powders and masses of small solids.
Plasma (Henry George Liddell, Robert Scott, A Greek English Lexicon, on Perseus) is one of the four fundamental states of matter, and was first described by chemist Irving Langmuir in the 1920s.
Pressure (symbol: p or P) is the force applied perpendicular to the surface of an object per unit area over which that force is distributed.
A rocket engine uses stored rocket propellant mass for forming its high-speed propulsive jet.
A rocket engine nozzle is a propelling nozzle (usually of the de Laval type) used in a rocket engine to expand and accelerate the combustion gases produced by burning propellants so that the exhaust gases exit the nozzle at hypersonic velocities.
In rocketry, a SERN, which stands for single expansion ramp nozzle, is a type of physical linear expansion nozzle where the gas pressure transfers work only on one side.
A spa is a location where mineral-rich spring water (and sometimes seawater) is used to give medicinal baths.
The speed of sound is the distance travelled per unit time by a sound wave as it propagates through an elastic medium.
A spray nozzle is a precision device that facilitates dispersion of liquid into a spray.
A supersonic transport (SST) is a civilian supersonic aircraft designed to transport passengers at speeds greater than the speed of sound.
A tuyere or tuyère is a tube, nozzle or pipe through which air is blown into a furnace or hearth.
