There are several locomotor movements that will successfully transfer weight from one location to another:

• Walking
• Running
• Leaping
• Jumping
• Hopping
• Galloping
• Sliding
• Skipping

Non-locomotor movements, also referred to as axial movements are movements that are performed while remaining in place. Examples include:

• Swinging and swaying
• Pushing and pulling
• Bending and stretching
• Twisting and turning

Both locomotor and non-locomotor movements of the appendages or body are used by all animals and humans in order to achieve locomotion. The mode of locomotion that an animal or person uses depends on their size and the medium that they use as movement.

Newton's version of Kepler's third law is defined as: T2/R3 = 4π2/G * M1+M2, in which T is the period of orbit, R is the radius of orbit, G is the gravitational constant and M1 and M2 are the two masses involved. This is a more precise version of Kepler's third law.

The discharge coefficient is defined as the ratio of actual discharge to theoretical discharge. The coefficient of discharge equals the actual discharge divided by the theoretical discharge. The discharge coefficient is related to the mass flow rate of a fluid via a straight tube of a constant cross-sectional area.
