Very self-explanatory, just name what these equations show.

Great quiz

I got all but 2

Great quiz! I would like to see "Index of Refraction" accepted for "Refractive Index", and I found the last one a bit misleading (although I was on the right track, thinking "Bernoulli's pressure") but not sure if it should stay or go. It looks like only 1% got it, so it might be on the "too difficult" side

Perhaps accept "Potential energy" for "Gravitational potential energy".

I realize it's not entirely correct, and I did get "Gravitational Potential Energy", but I think it could be nice to accept Potential Energy for that one, since a lot of people studying mechanics would probably think of it as just "potential energy" and perhaps not spell it out in detail.

Still, great quiz!

"Index of refraction" should really be accepted as well for "refractive index"

Force x distance is also torque if i remember correctly

Nice quiz ! It has been quite a while. And seeing this out of context makes it harder, and it being in english even more so. My brain needed to shift into new gears ( and in this second day of the new year, it isnt quite up to speed yet haha)

I got three "wrong" despite trying "index of refraction," "potential energy," and "gravitational energy". I agree with other folks that those should be counted.

"Gravitational Potential Energy" is quite a mouthful, especially when most people would say either "Gravitational Energy" or "Potential Energy," which, although not 100% precise, are vaguely correct. Not to mention that other things you listed are not 100% pedantically correct to the same degree.

I had a tough time also with "Refractive Index," as, like most people, I tried "Index of Refraction," and then just panic typed a bunch of other options until something took.

After the frustration of these two, I gave up after trying various permutations and perturbations of "Hydrostatic Pressure due to a Column of Fluid/Liquid" for the last one. Seeing "Pressure Difference" was mildly frustrating after all of that effort to try to guess what you were thinking.

Overall, I still enjoyed the quiz. I would strongly suggest you fix a few minor problems with it, though, as it could be a great quiz instead of just a good one with a little "TLC."

I had a though time when I was asked for speed, because in other fomulas you are using "velocity". "Speed" and "velocity" should be both accepted. (also, "celerity" is the right term when no vector is required, so...).

Cool quiz! however, can "Gauge Pressure" be accepted for the last question?

Can also 'hydrostatic pressure' be added to this question? It is the more known version I believe...
