## Constants Physics constant, also called universal constant, are basic quantities observed in nature and the universe.  These physical constants are part of our everyday life and can be written in different units.  Physics constants are fixed numerical values that are used in physics equations and models to describe the behavior of the physical world.  These constants are fundamental to our understanding of physics and are based on experimental observations.  They are used in a wide range of physics calculations and equations, from quantum mechanics to classical mechanics, and are fundamental to our understanding of the physical world.

### C

• Coulomb's Constant  -  The electric force constant, or the electrostatic constant, it is a proportionality constant in electrostatics equations.

### D

• Dielectric Constant  -  The measure of a substance to an electric field expressed as the ratio of its electric displacement to the applied field strength.

### S

• Specific Gas Constant  -  Deals with the universal gas constant which is equal to 8.314 joules per Kelvin.
• Spring Constant  -  The ratio of opposing force to the displacement from the origional position or how much force is needed to change a springs distance.
